    Hip hop, a way of life
    Chosen by the ghetto youth out of necessity
    It involves graffiti, deejaying, breakdancing and emceeing
    Which all rely on raw, artistic skill
    You know, they used to tell me that this music would never last
    Now look at it now, it influences all music here today
    So either you respect it we gon' take it back

    Hip hop, the voice of the street, the voice of the youth
    The voice that you hear, the voice that only we produce
    The way that we salute that makes the wildest niggas start to shoot
    The voice that recoupes only 12% of the loot
    The voice of the groups, like OutKast, LOX and The Roots
    The voice of the truth, that no society can ever mute
    The voice of the men and women who gave their lives defendin
    The God-given rights, they had no choice but to fight
    The voice of the black, latino and the white
    The voice of the club that makes the freaks come out at night
    The voice of the thugs who pop champagne and rock ice
    The voice of the shorties who wear tight shirts and talk sheist
    The voice of the shook who look one time but not twice
    The voice of the crooks at gambling spot with hot dice
    The voice of the church, mosque, synagogue and temple
    The voice of your soul, your body and your mental
    The voice that says "rap!" when I hear a instrumental
    The voice that don't stop and it's just that simple
    The voice that don't stop and it's just that simple
    The voice that don't, d-d-don't, d-don't...

    Yo, we live that life that you call hip hop
    From the bottom straight to the tip top
    Hey Rawls, we got em while them others did not
    So if you with the LC, nigga, lick shot
    If you live that life they call hip hop
    Worldwide everyday tic-toc
    This life is like nothin to play with, ock
    That's why when I say "shit" you say "shit hot"
    That's why when I say "shit" you say "shit hot"
    That's why when I say "shit" you say "shit hot"
    That's why when I say "shit" you say "shit hot"
    That's why when I say "shit" -

    ( *excerpt from the movie _Wildstyle_* )
    [ Double Trouble ]
    Cause here's a little story that must be told
    About two cool brothers that were put on hold
    Tried to hold us back from fortune and fame
    They destroyed the crew and they killed our name
    They tried to step on the ego and walk on the pride
    But true blue brothers stand side by side
    Through thick and thin, from beginning to end
    This battle we lost, but the war we'll win
