    "What It Takes" Lyrics


    [Chorus: Illogic]
    I don't know what you thought you had or what you got
    But yo, to be an MC it takes a lot
    Are you willin to take the responsibility of this quest
    cause if you do it right you might not have nothin left

    Yo, it takes artistic ability and knowhow lyrically
    to express in forms of poetical wizardry
    It takes rhythmic structures and phenomenal thoughts
    It takes creation of hooks on which the wack can get caught
    It takes knowledge of self and creator

    It takes payin attention to that music in the elevator and elevatin
    If you call yourself a lyrical surgeon it takes patients/patience
    It takes takin a trip with God on that ship of relation
    It takes self-denial AND realization
    It takes keepin it realistic
    Not real just to become a statistic
    It takes evolution and edification
    It takes a person, it takes a family, takes a city, it takes a nation
    It takes surroundin sound, not lettin sound surround you
    It takes surroundin yourself with fam and a dope crew
    It takes hot tracks and it takes hot use of words
    I don't about you but for me it took a third

    [Chorus] - 2X

    Yo, it takes a sense of focus and clear mindstate
    It takes shape and destiny and acceptin fate

    It takes you takin a stand and not conceit
    It takes you bein and actin like a man and not a beast
    It takes squashin beef
    It takes, treating our women like queens and men like kings
    It takes replacement of material with spiritual things
    It takes a one for education and lack of stupidity
    It takes discovering your faults and seeking a remedy
    It takes some illogical thinking in this rational world
    It takes passiveness and confontation, rebellion and confirmation
    It takes, an open and a closed mind
    It takes a lack of compromise and, findin some truth in lies
    It takes healin, it takes booze and it takes tryin
    It takes winnin, it takes losin, it takes livin , it takes dyin
    It takes them, it takes us, it takes you what takes me
    These are the essentials I think it takes to be an MC

    [Chorus] - 2X

    I'm an MC cause I got what it takes
    Are you an MC, do you have what it takes?
    If you don't know, I've defined it
    So go ahead kid, and just rewind it
    I'm an MC cause I got what it takes
    Are you an MC, do you have what it takes?
    If you don't know, I've defined it
    So go ahead kid, and just rewind it

    "Clap your hands everybody, if you got what it takes" -> KRS-One
    (repeat 4X)
