"Totem Pole" as written by and Richard Terfry....
this is for us, us, and not for anybody else.
and this is for us, not for the underground hip hop fans, nah, this is for us.
this ain't for b-boys, rap writers,
djs, and mcs, or any of them, 'cause ah..this is for us.
not for the vinyl buyin' break beat collectors
with dirty fingertips and notebooks, this is for us.
and this is for us, not for the students and historians either,
'cause this is for us, the arch,
buck 65, the hacks, the slam, dj critical,
stinkin' rich, uncle climax, achilles, jesus murphy, and johnny rockwell.
this is for us, not for canadians and not for americans.
not even for earth, this is only for us.
this isn't for you, this is for us, this is for us.
this isn't for sale and damn sure ain't free, this is for us.
this is for us, not for anybody else, this is for us.

mix and match some fix it tracks with clits and cracks,
shit's like burning candles, just a whole lot of wicks and wax.
and i dont give a f' for battles between the coast guard,
i'm sayin' both beyond some weak ass shit for the most part.
ya take a whole lot of groups that are mostly phonies such as
seventy-five to eighty percent of the shit that tony touches.
sometimes i want to cry because i'm sick of this daily vomit,
and somethin' dope comes along about as often as haley's comet.
