[Raekwon the Chef]: I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side Staying alive was no jive Had second hands, Moms bounced on old man So then we moved to Shaolin land A young youth, yo rockin' the gold tooth, 'Lo goose Only way, I begin to G' off was drug loot And let's start it like this son, rollin' with this one And that one, pullin' out gats for fun But it was just a dream for the teen, who was a fiend Started smokin woolies at sixteen And runnin' up in gates, and doing hits for high stakes Making my way on fire escapes No question I would speed for cracks and weed The combination made my eyes bleed No question, I would flow off and try to get the dough off Sticking up white boys in ball courts My life got no better, same damn 'Lo sweater Times is rough and tough like leather Figured out I went the wrong route So I got with a sick tight clique and went all out Catchin keys from 'cross seas Rollin in MPVs, every week we made forty G's Yo brothas respect mine or anger the tech nine Ch-pow, move from the gate now [Method Man]: Cash Rules Everything Around Me C.R.E.A.M. Get the money Dollar, dollar bill y'all [Inspectah Deck]: It's been 22 long hard years and still strugglin' Survival got me buggin, but I'm alive on arrival I peep at the shape of the streets And stay awake to the ways of the world cause shit is deep A man with a dream with plans to make C.R.E.A.M. Which failed; I went to jail at the age of 15 A young buck sellin' drugs and such who never had much Trying to get a clutch at what I could not touch The court played me short, now I face incarceration Pacin', going up state's my destination Handcuffed in back of a bus, 40 of us Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough But as the world turns I learned life is Hell Living in the world, no different from a cell Everyday I escape from Jakes givin' chase, sellin base Smokin' bones in the staircase Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed But I'm still depressed, and I ask what's it worth? Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth Who explained working hard may help you maintain to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks and stray shots, all on the block that stays hot Leave it up to me while I be livin' proof To kick the truth to the young black youth But shorty's running wild, smokin sess, drinkin beer And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin' in his ear Neglected for now, but yo, it gots to be accepted That what? That life is hectic [Method Man]: Cash Rules Everything Around Me C.R.E.A.M. Get the money Dolla dolla bill y'all (x3)

[MF DOOM]: Nah, yo A modern day marvel but terrible, better horrible When he grab the mic, son he crushed up all his metacarpals He said he ain't mean it, totally by accident After the show, he didn't follow where y'all taxi went Will this be available on wax? Ask Max Mill They on the opposition to his ass wack tax bill But will it pass the senate? Slum lord tenant And super like 1-A, have a fun stay One day, he plan to put in a runway With enough land for his own projects and gun play Section 8 penthouse, maid look like Faye Dunaway Alotta y'all assed out like gay runaways It's how they say "semi-risque" All day everyday, give out Emmy's the quick way Have the average MC say, "Gimme a sick day!" They really ain't got shit to say like Timmy McVeigh Get a hunch, a real rag tag bunch In school he kept a doo rag in his bag lunch Just to eat heads on some breakdance shit and spit He writ this skit in sanscript If the pants fit, sport 'em but rock 'em low Your man like Rollo on the slow, can't knock it though It's like the same hustle bro, two knuckles glow Tucked in Le Tigre, just let the name buckle show Good googly moogly, see that loogie? Yeah, but keep it on the D.L. Hughley You don't watch her, he might Houser like Doogie Just to cut her loosie like *swoosh* Mitsurugi Gooey gum drops, who he got his style from? His pops, you gotta give the bum some props Ask ya sister, her beat box is more thicker DOOM, that nigga detox with malt liquor Villain for hire, admire the sound Make sure The Price Is Right before he come on down! Rappers be on some, "You, you, you!" Forgot who they talking too, too much pork stew They need to not come out with nothing new Blew the whole shit up on some, "What this button do?" DOOM cheat the game like walk-thru Run 'em, son 'em like Mr. Rourke do Tattoo The way alotta clowns get down is unnatural This flow flip like oranges, apples Rhymes like limes to a Lemonade Snapple Leave her at the chapel, don't eat Scrapple First thing they notice when they come to is they bling is gone Then they start remembering the Klingon with the rings on In came the Villain with their own gear like, "Hi, there" Y'all play the rear, this whole year my year Metal face beard like Brillo pad Y'all know his steelo so don't feel so bad Seed call him, "Ol' dad," the one the ol' hoe had Knew he was a winner since a swimmer in the gonads Okay pal, pay him like PayPal So we could be A-OK not OK Corral I think today I'll make the ladies say, "Ow" And maybe fuck around take a bow, now Who made his first mill and still carry razor blades Used to be straight A's and still made the grade 'Tarded ass, how he get cash so fast Year after last, left back in the retarded class Shoulda went to Boces Watch him all closely, who he think he supposed to be Villain who always win, at least he stay consistent Find out where that bitch went, get a room pitch a tent Yo yo, yo change the beat yo You got another one? x2

[Prodigy]: I got you stuck off the realness, we be the infamous You heard of us Official Queensbridge murderers The Mobb comes equipped with warfare, beware Of my crime family who got nuff shots to share For all of those who wanna profile and pose Rock you in your face, stab your brain wit' your nosebone You all alone in these streets, cousin Every man for theyself in this land we be gunnin' And keep them shook crews runnin' Like they supposed to They come around but they never come close to I can see it inside your face You're in the wrong place Cowards like you just get they whole body laced up With bullet holes and such Speak the wrong words man and you will get touched (Oh lord yeah) You can put your whole army against my team and I guarantee you it'll be your very last time breathin' Your simple words just don't move me You're minor, we're major You all up in the game and don't deserve to be a player Don't make me have to call your name out Your crew is featherweight My gunshots'll make you levitate I'm only nineteen but my mind is old And when the things get for real my warm heart turns cold Another nigga deceased, another story gets told It ain't nothin' really Hey, yo dun spark the Phillie So I can get my mind off these yellowbacked niggas Why they still alive I don't know, go figure Meanwhile back in Queens the realness is foundation If I die I couldn't choose a better location When the slugs penetrate you feel a burning sensation Getting closer to God in a tight situation Now, take these words home and think it through Or the next rhyme I write might be about you Son, they shook 'cause ain't no such things as halfway crooks Scared to death, scared to look They shook 'cause ain't no such things as halfway crooks Scared to death, scared to look (x4) I got you stuck off the realness, we be the infamous You heard of us Official Queensbridge murderers The Mobb comes equipped with warfare, beware Of my crime family who got nuff shots to share For all of those who wanna profile and pose Rock you in your face, stab your brain wit' your nosebone You all alone in these streets, cousin Every man for theyself in this land we be gunnin'
