Brave is the knave who steps up to be slayed
He'd best behave, or I`ma send him a wave
He's kickin a bunch of crap so I`ll be the judge of that
An entertainer, but instead he`s a waste of
Whenever you`re looking for rap that`s exceptional
Cause GangStarr`s known to be prone to be
But still be a cold day in Hell when you hear that
But they fail in the long run that kid who went gold yo
I`m the Guru, of the G-A-N-G
And I`ll say, that they`ve still got a long way to go
So gimme that loot catch the boot from my steel toe
Cause most MC`s ain`t really got no pull
Make em quit all that riff as I flip the script
Fool listen, I know that you`ve been missing
Like a gem, and if you are the fake MC type
Your capabilities fall short so I`ma treat you like a dwarf
And even claim you got new styles but
And you don`t sound fly so why are you doing that?
I couldn`t make out what you were saying your diction
To a crowd that`s most critical
I bet you couldn`t name more than one pioneer
But that`s OK cause I`m peeping your card
As I recline I`ll find more chores to give ya
So don`t even trip or run off with the lip

Butter roll MC`s get dissed like this
You rap like a simpleton
Cause they`re idle my recital will break you down
Give em all a fair shot to see if any can rhyme
I`ll kick the slick lines til the last one drops
And weighing much more than your tall tales
And make simple notation
Is taking me out cause I can throw so you know now
Before I steal that so called title that you gave yourself
And now you look from a distance as you sweat my tip
