Gang Starr (Guru & DJ Premier) – Work “viciously, I make history instantly, those other lame-ass loser-ass niggas, they can’t fuck wit me, I’m doin my thing now to lamp later on, paid in the shade with some fly gators on, but now I’m grimy as they get, mud on my pants and shirt, I bet you niggas out here know I been puttin in work,  I’m gonna be on tid-op, that’s all my eyes can see, victory is mine, yeah surprisingly, I been laying, waiting for your next mistake, I put in work and watch my status escalate”

Gang Starr, Big Shug, & Freddie Foxxx – The Militia “I ain’t one to succumb to no man, but to command, and scoop up the troops when it’s time to take a stand, emphatically, deep strategies leave casualties, I creep gradually ‘til everybody knows that I got more flows than Rosebud got hoes…we cleverly stalked ya, your fam will miss ya, the war’s on, that’s why we formed the militia, everybody’s spittin that their rhyme is hot, cuz its Big Shug, Guru, and Freddie the Fox, when Premier bring the beats no it just don’t stop, it’s the militia”

Guru – Revolutionist “the revolutionist, I’ll blast, refuse to kiss ass, look fast, I’m ready to mash cuz of my bugged out past, it never mattered to the so-called general public about my nation’s situation and how we rise above it, that’s why I only follow instincts, they want us all to be extinct, just threw my man in the clink, the revolutionist, the activist, don’t ask me why I’m packin this, due to circumstances I had to be safe”  

Gang Starr – Who’s Gonna Take the Weight? “dig the scenario, just imagine if each one is teaching one, we’ll come together so that we become, a strong force and we can stay on course, find your direction thru introspection, and for my people out there I got a question, can we be the sole controllers of our fate? now who’s gonna take the weight?”

I’ll organize some brothers and get some crazy loot, selling D-R-U-G-Ses and clocking dollars, troop cuz the fat dough, yo, that suits me fine, I gotta have it so I can leave behind the mad poverty, never having always needing, if a sucker steps up, then I leave him bleeding, you gotta be a pro, do what you know when you’re dealing with the code of the streets”
