Ah yeah, here's another Gangstarr sure shot, featuring the one and
HEY, HEY!!!!
Gangstarr has got to be da sure shot
Gangstarr has got to be da sure shot

Droppin dem basso, ah oui oui
Maybe I'll do it for charity
Is makin Greg N-I-C-E very M-A-D
I work to hard for my royalty
Peace to Red Alert and Kid Capri
I say butter you say Parkay
I'm a way up town, took duece to the tre
I praise the lord and keep the faith
'92, uh!!, one year later

I wreck da mic like a pimp pimps hoes
I shake this you'll take this
You wish that you could come into my neighborhood
Still I'm 5 foot 8
Cause I make it orderly
The brotha dat will make you change opinions
The heart, plus I get a piece of the action
Chumps pull guns when they feel afraid, too late
Lemonade was a popular drink and in still is
A poet like Langston Hughes and can't lose when I cruise
Leavin the Bodega I say "suave"
Clips are inserted into my gun

Do you have another?
Now may I make a mark
Or should I say dope beat
All of the wick wack that wanna be abstract
Hey yo Premier, please pass that buddha sack
No way, bullshit
I provide bright flava, so you could sketch me
Slightly ahead of the game, I'm not a lame
Smooth, I drop jewels like, paraphenalia
Like a rhinocerus, my speed is prosperous
I write here tonite to bring truth to the light
