TOP 10 BEST MOS DEF LYRICS

Black, my family thick, like black strap molasses
Star, on the rise, in the eyes of the masses

Black like the planet that they fear, why they scared?
Black like the slave ship belly that brought us here

Blacker than my granddaddy armchair
He never really got no time to chill there
Cause this life is warfare, warfare

It’s the third eye vision, five side dimension
The 8th Light, is gonna shine bright tonight

 

Projectile that them blasted with, accurate assassin shit
Me and Kweli close like Bethlehem and Nazareth

Shining like an asterisk for all those that be gathering

Brooklyn, New York City, where they paint murals of Biggie
In cash we trust, cause it’s ghetto fabulous, life look pretty

Blunts is still fifty cents, it’s intense
Tree scents is dominant can’t be covered with incense

Stop actin’ like a bitch already, be a visionary
And maybe you can see your name in the column of obituaries
Third grade teacher reading and talking about

Consider me the entity within the industry without a history
Of spitting the epitome of stupidity
Living my life, expressing my liberty, it gotta be done properly
My name is in the middle of equality

In miles or kilometers, most cats, cannot proceed us
In the jungle with the leaders, we them lions, you the cheetahs

 

RE:DEFinition, turning your play into a tragedy
Exhibit level degree on the mic, passionately
Niggas is sweet so I bet if I bit I’d get a cavity
Living to get high, you ain’t flyer than gravity

Rocking before Funkmaster Flex was rocking Starter
When ‘Pac and Biggie was still cool, before they was martyrs
Life or death, if I’m choosing with every breath I’m enhancing
Stop, there comes a time when you can’t run

Son I’m way past the millennium, entering millennium
My raps will hold a gat to your back like Palestinians
Ancient Abyssinia, sure to hold the Gideon

You got a tenement, well then assemble it!
Leave your unit trembling like herds of moving elephant
Intelligent embellishment, follow for your element
From Flatbush settlement, skin possesses melanin

 

There lived a little boy who was misled
By a little Sha-tan and this is what he said
“Me and you kid we gonna make some cash
Jacking old beats and making the dash…”

So, he’s in the studio working round the clock
For pop radio, jacked the beat to ‘Planet Rock’
Was out in the street when he met this sister
Who couldn’t sing for shhhh but the mix would assist her

Jane the chickenhead radio host
Who be yapping ‘bout beef between east and west coast
He said “This one’s a bullet, you got to give it run!”
The chicken said “Thanks” and spanked it #1

They told the kid “Back down, that player shit is dead.”
Deep in his heart, he knew he was gone
But he grabbed his .45 and decide to blaze on

 

Fresher than Tony Rebel’s vegetables at African street festivals
Where incredible women is, plentiful

DAMN SHE’S FINE, I think I add the R-E, in front of that
And see if she D, to get, with a cat like me

I tighten up my game as I approach you
Yo check her she the nectar the bee get close to

I don’t get many compliments, but I am confident
Used to have a complex about, gettin too complex
You got me, willin to try, looked me in the eye

We’re not dealin with the European standard of beauty tonight
Turn off the TV and put the magazine away
In the mirror tell me what you see
See the evidence of divine presence

 

Party people, in the place to be
My name is Talib Kweli
Yo, I got my man on the side of me
Mos Def-initely, and we, are

Tried to kill the pride
And destroy the name
We just two bad brothers
Who will never quit
I’m Mos Def
Kweli (WE THE ULTIMATE)

 

So many emcees focusin on black people extermination
We keep it balanced with that knowledge of self, determination

Knowledge Of Self is like life after death
With that you never worry about your last breath

Different day, same confusion, we’re gonna take this
Hip-hop shit and keep it movin, shed a little light
Now y’all bloomin like a flower with the power of the evident

The most important time in history is, NOW, the present
So count your blessings cause time can’t define the essence

Inner-city concentration camps where no one pays attention
Or mentions the ascension of death, til nothing’s left

Hands steady so the lines in the mental illustration is straight
The thought you had don’t even contemplate
Infinite like figure eight there’s no escape..

 

Now get this, these emcees wanna test me like litmus, bear witness
I’m like shot clocks, interstate cops, and blood clots
My point is, your flow gets stoped!

Visions occupy my synaptic space
Command and shape, to illustrate my mind’s landscape
The tall grass, the low plains, the mountanous ridges
Thickets among the forests, rivers beneath the bridges

I follow suit, and face it, embrace it
Shinin bright, but still I’m careful not to waste it
Destined to rise, because I’m basement adjacent
Spirit is still so just chill and be patient

My serious synopsis will drop kick, my topics
Run the gauntlets and galvanize the audience

 

The new moon rode high in the crown of the metropolis
Shinin, like who on top of this?
People was tusslin, arguin and bustlin
Gangstaz of Gotham hardcore hustlin

Tonight alive, let’s describe the inscrutable
The indisputable, we New York the narcotic
Draped in metal and fiber optics

Hard knuckles on the second hands of workin class watches
Skyscrapers is collosus, the cost of living is preposterous
Stay alive, you play or die, no options

Breathin in deep city breaths, sittin on shitty steps
We stoop to new lows, hell froze the night the city slept

Look in the skies for God, what you see besides the smog
Is broken dreams flying away on the wings of the obscene

So keepin it real will make you casualty of abnormal normality
Killers Born Naturally like, Mickey and Mallory
Not knowing the ways’ll get you capped like an NBA salary

I choreograph seven steps to heaven
In hell, waiting to exhale and make the bread leaven

Outta the city, they want us gone
Tearin down the ‘jects creatin plush homes
My circumstance is between Cabrini and Love Jones
Surrounded by hate, yet I love home

 

Give me the fortune, keep the fame,“ said my man Louis
I agreed, know what he mean because we live the truest lie

And so tomorrow coming later than usual
Waiting on someone to pity us while we finding beauty in the hideous

While R&B singers hit bad notes, we rock the boat of thought
That my man Louis’ statements just provoked

Brought up, through endangered species status on the planet Earth
Survival tactics means, busting gats to prove you hard
Your firearms are too short to box with God

Synthesized surface conceals the interior
America, land of opportunity, mirages and camoflauges

Reflection rarely seen across the surface of the lookin glass
Walking the street, wonderin who they be looking past
