You Know My Steez Lyrics

Artist: GangStarr
Album: Moment Of Truth

That makes me know that we we we we're doin
We had the right idea in the beginning
And and we just need to maintain our focus and elevate
We what we do we update our formulas
We have certain formulas but we update em (oh right)
with the times and everything y'know
So y'know the rhyme style is elevated
The style of beats is elevated but it's still Guru and Premier
And it's always a message involved

"The real... hip-hop"
"MCing, and DJing.. from your own mind, ya know?"
"I, I guess right now we should start the show"

Who's the suspicious character strapped with the sounds profound
Similar to rounds spit by Derringers
You're in the Terrordome like my man Chuck D said
It's time to dethrone you clones, and all you knuckleheads
Cause MC's have used up extended warranties
While real MC's and DJ's are a minority
But right about now, I use my authority
Cause I'm like the Wizard and you look lost like Dorothy
The horror be when I return for my real people
Words that split wigs hittin like some double Desert Eagles
Sportin caps pulled low, and baggy slacks
Subtractin all the rappers who lack, over Premier's tracks
Severe facts have brought this rap game to near collapse
So as I have in the past, I will bash
Droppin lyrics that be hotter than sex and candlewax
And one-dimensional MC's can't handle that
While the world's revolvin, on it's axis
I come with mad love and plus the illest warlike tactics
The wilderness is filled with this; so many people
searching for false lift, I'm here with the skills you've missed
The rejected stone is now the cornerstone
Sort of like the master builder when I make my way home
You know my steez...

"You know my steez" --> Method Man
"Let em know, do your thing God" "Keep it live"
"To the beat y'all" --> Flavor Flav

The beat is sinister, Primo makes you relax
I'm like the minister, when I be lacin the wax
I be bringin salvation through the way that I rap
And you know, and I know, I'm nice like that
Work through worldly problems, I got the healing power
When the mic's within my reach, I'm feelin more power
Stealing at least three minutes of every rap radio hour
It's often easier for one, to give advice
Than it is for a person to run one's own life
That's why I can't be caught up in all the hype
I keep my soul tight and let these lines takes flight
The apparatus gets blessed, and suckers get put to rest
No more of the unpure I got the cure for this mess
The wackness is spreadin like the plague
MC's lucked up and got paid but still can't make the fuckin grade
How many times are wannabe's gonna lie?
Yo they must wanna fry, they can't touch the knowledge I personify
I travel through the darkness carrying my torch
The illest soldier, when I'm holding down the fort
("You know my steez" --> Method Man)
You know my steez...

"Let em know, do your thing God" "Keep it live"
"You know my steez" --> Method Man
*repeat 4X with very last line modified as follows*
"The mic..."

On the microphone you know that I'm one of the best yet
Some punks, ain't paid all of their debts yet
Tryin to be fly, ridin high on the jet-set
With juvenile rhymes makin fake-ass death threats
Big deal, like En Vogue, here's something you can feel
Styles more tangible, and image more real
For some time now, I've held the scrolls and manuscripts
When it's time to go all out you be like, "Damn he flipped"
Now I'm sick, fed up with the bullshit
Got the lyrical full clip, giving you a verbal asswhip
Don't trip it's the gifted prolific one
Known as Bald Head Slick -- why is the press all on my di-dick?
My style be wilder, than a kamikaze pilot
Don't try it, I'm about to start more than a friggin riot
Styles unsurpassable, and nuccas that's suckas, yo
Them motherfuckers are harrassable
For I be speaking from my parables and carry you beyond
The mic's either a magic wand
Or it gets tragic like the havoc of a nuclear bomb
Then I grab your palm, no pulse you're gone
And if you thought we'd lose our niche in this rap shit you way wrong
I stay up, I stay on, shine bright, like neon
Your song's, pathetic, synthetic, like Rayon
Fat beats, they play on, want dope rhymes, put me on
Word is bond... you know my steez

Havoc like the tragic of a nuclear bomb is a nasty line

1 of the hottest tracks of alltime
by Ubong Akpan on 1/14/2009 2:41pm
This track is simply one of the tightest, sublimest rhymes to come out of the hip hop universe. And it's true: "It's often easier for one to give advice than it is for a person to run one's life". A thought for 2009!
by teflon don on 1/24/2009 8:51pm

The rejected stone is now the cornerstone
Sort of like the master builder when I make my way home
he speaks of jesus - the chief corner stone - and the masons are the builders

"Who's the suspicious character strapped with the sounds profound
Similar to rounds spit by Derringers." If you've watched enough Simpsons, then you know derringers are mad retarded like the noise coming from the radio. Big ups on king Guru and the one and only Premier.

Guru was on form when writing this. The content of these lyrics is amazing and well thought out. Perfect Primo(best producer ever) beat to compliment the lyrics. It dont get no better than this. Moment of Truth was Gang starrs best album. Get well guru 2010 (bring back gangstarr, guru & primo). Big up to Primo(still representing with the good beats in 2010.

Gang Starr (Guru and DJ Premier) owned TWO YEARS IN THE 90S WITH THIS TRACK!! It's a shame that Guru passed though. Rest In Peace. 1961-2011.
by King Dash on 11/15/2011 7:21am
perfect,super 'n great lyrics, untouchable style of flow. i haven't liked any rapper like King Guru.And trust me i never sleep before playin'not less than 6 of his tracks neither will i leave for school before doin' the same!

"work through worldly problems, i got the healing power,when the mic's within my reach i am feeling more power"

Very inspirational lines giving me more strength 'n power from
within,DAMN!i just can't stop talkin' about this GREAT,GIFTED'N ANNOITED RAPPER MESSIAH

It's a global loss but JAH SHALL BLESS AND GUIDE HIS SOUL.We love you

R I P King Guru
