You Know My Steez Lyrics

You Know My Steez - Gang Starr

Written by:Keith Elam


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 whup a**

Droppin' lyrics that be hotter than s*x 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


Let 'em know do your thing y'all keep it live


To the beat y'all


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 f**kin' 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


Let 'em know do your thing y'all keep it live


You know my steez


Let 'em know do your thing y'all keep it live

You know my steez


Let 'em know do your thing y'all keep it live


You know my steez


Let 'em know do your thing y'all keep it live


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 a** 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 bullsh*t

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 d*ck

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 motherf**kers 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 sh*t 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 d**e rhymes put me on

Word is bond


You know my steez
