It's crazy, right? Listen, listen, listen, I'm from New York City, right? I'm from the five boroughs It's the fact—listen, when I was a little nigga growing up When I met this nigga, him and Guru, right? (Mmm-hmm) It probably—what was that, '87, '88? ('88) '88, I was 16, 17 years old I was gettin' money in Baltimore, I'm from the Bronx (Okay) So, I respected niggas from outta town coming to another town tryin' to get money (A'ight) Feel me? So that's what clicked me with Gang Starr I thought Guru, God bless him, was my little man That nigga was ten years older than me I'm from outside (Okay) And I thought that, you know I come from the era where rappers wasn't really, uh, admired the way they are now You feel me? (Right) Them niggas was entertainers to us (Mmm-hmm) We was fuckin' with niggas who threw stones at the penitentiary (Right) Alright, so, when I got with Gang Starr, it was like "Yo, I like these niggas, they from outta town, they came here to get money And they doing they thing, I fuck with them" Then when they blew, it was, "Ah, that's dope, they blew These niggas is legends"
