Yeah, yeah, fo' your mind
Hmm right, let's see what we can come up with
Record after record, yeaaah, rhyme after rhyme check it

[Sadat X]

In the studio, on the first try

On the verse high only birds fly

You get out the pack like that y'all

Straight off da head (what?), let niggas know I use to wear the pro

Get three strikes yo, I used to have to court awarder

but now I got a daughter and she gotta grow

And I let her know that that ain't the way to go

My name is X, yo I'm like a puzzle when I get released

Just like I had my muzzle off, check it out yo

I can never be sold

You don't stop (and you don't quit) and you don't stop

(We're makin hit after hit after hit y'all) Ya don't stop

[Lord Jamar]

Comin straight off da head one time it's the dread Lord J

Come around the way, would you say?

One time with my crew, manifessin

Just like that, now who you think you tessin? Uhh

Brand Nubian, my crew be in effect, uhh

Get erect with the blunts and ya check

right in, one time, goin to the bank, I'm

cashin, and you know I be stashin

in the mattress, one time with the phatness

Just like that and defeatin all my foes

[Sadat X]

Yo my name is X, yo my name is X and I was born in

the BX, I went to New Rochelle

Know my man Mark the Spark who live in the Vernon

And my man be they rhythm, dwell in Bronxdale, in the home of the

boss, goin down the block or go to forest

Keep on goin past Morris High School

Then I go down the street to Courtland Ave.

Vietnam, the male goes in Jackson

Over the bridge, on 45th to 8th Ave.

Go to 7th Ave., go to Polo Grounds

Go to Drewham, 1-0-6 all the way to 1-10

Black Puerto Rican and Dominican, check it out

[Lord Jamar]

Uhh, we're gonna show you how we live, take you straight across the bridge

to Medina where the GODs is meaner, wisdom is cleaner

Straight down on Flatbush Ave.

Some of the streets in Brooklyn'll make you laugh

Names like Myrtle and Willoughby

Things like Scurmerhorn and Classun

and funny names like that but still they got the gats rollin

Just like that that's how we be strollin

Maestro Manny and my man Big Ill, we fill blunts

Just like that we kill stunts

Guts, and what'cha want like that, we got nuts

Just like that 'cause it's phat, uhhh

Check it out, yeah (Like that, ya don't stop)

And I keep on goin, I keep on goin (Just like that ya don't stop)

My head keep goin on

Rob deep from mackadocious, your cut be close

With the one blade, ever since the first grade

I been a fan of the rap and I can do this

I use to watch and listen, and watch the ol' time greats

and watch em how they did things and I learned it well

I rip in New Rochelle, that's where I dwell (Uhh)

Check it out, my name is X, yo my man Mark the Spark's with me

My man Serge got the urge to splurge, he came from Cleveland

All the way from Ohio, he's gonna letcha know

can you deal with his flow, yo yo?

[Lord Jamar]

Aiyo, peace to the GODs, peace to the Earth

Peace to the birth of me and my seed Khari

It's like that in effect one time, and I'm

the black man, intelligent with the plan

Islam be the bomb, droppin on the devils

Goin to a higher level

Peace to Farrakhan and the Nation like that

Creation is black, one time, that's a fact

Original solar, I'm Lord Jamar, yes I be the

intelligent one, I be the sun shinin

Like the light in the night, but still I be bright

One time, now I recite the lessons for ya

one time, messin for ya or

check it out, without a doubt

Peace to the GODs, sincere, makin it clear

Peace to Tamiq, yeah that's the language we speak

Peace to Knowledge, he didn't go to college

but still he got the supreme mind

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
