"Intro" as written by Dominick Lamb and Trevor Smith....
It's the Dynasty niggas, as promised
The world's most infamous
Roc-A-Fella Records
This is Roc La Familia
It's Young Hova, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Amil-lion
It's the Dynasty niggas, 2000 to infinity
This is ghetto to ghetto, gutter to gutter
Street corner to street corner, project to project
Worldwide, walk with us niggas
Hoffa, Dash, it's the Dynasty niggas
Check it out
Uhh, walk with me, talk to me, yo

The theme song to The Sopranos
Plays in the key of life on my, mental piano
Got a strange way of seeing life like
I'm Stevie Wonder with, beads under the doo-rag
Intuition is there even when my vision's impaired, yeah
Knowing I can go, just switching a spare
On the highway of life, nigga it's sharp in my sight
Oh! Keen senses ever since I was a, teen on the benches
Every time somebody like Enus was mentioned
I would turn green, me, being in the trenches
Him, living adventurous not worrying about expenditures
I'm braving temperatures below zero, no hero
No father figure, you gotta pardon a nigga
But I'm starving my niggas, and the weight loss in my figure
Is starting to darken my heart, bout to get to my liver
Watch it my niggas, I'm trying to be calm but I'm goin' get richer
Through any means, with that thing that Malcolm palmed in the picture
Never read the Qur'an or Islamic scriptures
Only psalms I read was on the arms of my niggas
Tattooed so I carry on like I'm non-religious
Clap whoever stand between Shawn and figures
Niggas, say it's the dawn but I'm superstitious
Shit is as dark as it's been, nothing is going as you predicted
I move with biscuits, stop the harder niggas acting too suspicious
This is, food for thought, you do the dishes

    General CommentTHE greatest Intro of all time!
    Read the lyrics..and you want proof jay is great? others have used the beat on mixtapes, and its not the same..elements came together on this deep track about jay's iconic rise to the top, straight from a speech like perspective, almost like he's preaching:
    "I would turn green, me, bein in the trenches
    Him, livin adventureous not worryin about expenditures
    I'm bravin temperatures below zero, no hero
    No father figure, you gotta pardon a nigga"
