"Now what you hear is not a test" --> Sugarhill Gang
(cut up 4X by DJ Premier)

[Guru]
Well goodness gracious, let me just take this
Time out to pull a rhyme out, and update this
For you and yours, simply because
Some MC`s have luck but suck
So I pluck em like feathers on the back of a chicken
Cause I`m mad like a pit when my man says, "sick `em"
Positive is the mind state, but it could still mean that
I will kick a ill, malicious like mean rap
Suckers they forced me, to knock em all out and
They think they know things, like what I`m about and
They try to analyze criticize scandalize
