I am about to take this up again… Ain’t no telling, but I’ll tell you what this isn’t. Just another phony gimmick. We’ll be leaving in a minute. This is nights that I was staying up. Improving the rhyming. Trying to surface wasn’t working. What you do with the timing. All my urges ended urgent. Either do it or dying. What I do? Ate depression till I threw up a diamond.” Showing the raw and great flow as well as lyrics that gave birth to another great Brooklyn-bred emcee.
