(DJ Premier scratches "at this time I have the honor to present to you")
[Guru]
Parahraphs, portraying my viewpoint
So stay attentive, cause this is a new joint
From the G-A-N-G with the info
Lyrical elements emerge from the intro
Forming a poetic mass over pathetic trash
Other writers are outclassed
Surpassed by the words and the wit
Rhymes fit and hit cause that`s how we designed it
Page for page, we are the new age
Dope in the videos and dope when we`re on stage
Commanding respect with my ink pen while suckers are sinking
As I`m keeping them thinking
Narrating phrases of value, and I can see now you
Relate to what I create
From back in the days of my youth, I`ve looked for the truth
And yo my rhymes are the real proof
New heights and new realms have been reached
By use of my speech along with one of Premier`s beats
So listen and we`ll show you the best way
And then sway, as I read my S-A

(DJ Premier cuts and scratches again)
[Guru]
Worshipful words giving insight, so just be observant
So you can get this right
My oratory gift is abundant, so dazzling to minds
That you should come get
A glimpse of the one who puts wimps out of work
The script is a mess and they dress like they`re jerks
Beyond them, is where I`ll be dwellin
The Guru will tell em, why their records ain`t sellin
Placin my fingers on the tool, I runaway all fools
When I`m dispersin a verse
Think of an enjoyable moment, then boogie your body
Cause this party I own it
The origin of this is on paper
Vibes will ascend from my mind to each line
I go with the flow as I show expertise
The powers increase as my voice hits the streets
Then gripping your soul with authority
I pour these rhymes in a cup so drink up
And then I might bring another round
Watch the sound pound from the floor to the ground
And keep aware, cause we`ll show you the best way
And then sway, as I read my S-A
