I love how it starts out.



Prodigy kills it

Now we Bed Stuy bound
Far from home and on unknown ground
But together we six deep, with five heats, nuttin sweet
First *%$@% frontin gettin lifted off his +*+!$* feet
It took eternity, we reached our destination
My heartbeat is racin like a cardiac patient
We finally got to Myrtle outside the train station
I saw not a soul, told my peoples to be patient
But hold up, thats when a black caravan rolled up
My legs then froze up, I grabbed my pound
Told my man, "Eyes open cause it might go down"
Said he don't like the way the !+#@ is startin to sound
Evey angle of the car was smoked out and tinted
So we couldn't tell if the enemy was in it
It mighta been TNT, I wasn't tryin to wait and see, we
jetted thru Marcy cause Dee's ain't baggin me
Word Son, they got us on the run, Dunn, see yo

timeless !+#@

It's just another day, drownin my troubles with a forty
That's when I got the call from this brownskin shorty
She asked me where's my crew at? Said we could do whatever
She got her crew too, and said that we should get together
I said, "Aight -- just call me back in a hour
so I can take a shower and gather up the manpower"
Then I hung up the horn
And I thought to myself that it might be on
Cause this trick ain't pick up the phone to call me in years (Why?)
Ever since I left the +!% lonely in tears
Ain't no tellin what her friends puttin up in her ears
Ideas of settin me up, I'm not tryin ta hear
(Check it out, Son) So we take the gats for precautions
Plus this trick live in Brooklyn, home of the coffin
She might got a whole batallion of Bucktowners
Waitin for us to get up off the train and surround us
Or maybe, I'm blowin this $%%@ out of proportion
But this $%%@ do happen, to *!#%*+ very often
So +*%! it, a +#$$! gotta do what he meant to
My crew got my back, +*%! the world is my mental

This was always the second weakest track on that album to me.

Still cool though.

Every damn song on that album was fire even "The Start of Your Ending" wasn't that bad.

Shook Ones
Survival of the Fittest
Right Back at You
Eye for an Eye
Give Up the Goods
Up North Tip

are my top songs. I can't possibly narrow down that list.

Always been in my top 1-3 albums of all-time... arguably better than Illmatic.

"I open my eyes to the streets where I was raised as a man,
And learned to use my hands for protection,
In scuffles, throw all my blows in doubles,
I'm coming from Queens %!%@*%$@*$%% carrying guns in couples."

Why are people arguing about weak tracks and what not?

The fact that every song on this album is flames in some form or fashion isn't up for debate.

This album is the definition of a certified classic.
