Re:Definition - Black Star

Written by:Talib Kweli Greene

What what what what

What what what what what


One two three

Mos Def and Talib Kweli

We came to rock it on to the tip top

Best alliance in hip hop


I said one two three

Black star shine eternally

We came to rock it on to the tip top

And hi tek make the beat drop



Turning your play into a tragedy

Exhibit level degree on the mic


Niggas is sweet

So I bet if I bit I'd get a cavity

Living to get high

You ain't flyer than gravity

We die hard like the battery

Thrown in the back of me by the mad MC

Who think imitation

Is the highest form of flattery


Don't be mad at me

I had to be the one to break it to you

You get kicked into obscurity

Like judo no menudo

'Cause you pseudo

Trying to compete with reality like xerox

Towards destruction you spiraling

Like hairlocks

Wipe them teardrops

Chasing stars in your eyes

Playing games with your lives

Now the wives is widows

Soaking up pillows

Weeping like willows

Still more blacks is dying

'Cause they live and they trying

How to make a slave

By willie lynch is still applying


The mos is one of my closest partners

Rocking ever since before

Prince was called the artist

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

What lyrically handsome

Call collect a king's ransom

Jams I write soon become

The ghetto anthem

Way out like Bruce Wayne's mansion

Move like a phantom

You'll talk about me to your grandsons

Cats who claiming they hard be mad fags

So I run through 'em like

Flood water through sandbags

Competition is mad

What I got

They can't have

Sinking they ship

Like moby Dick to Ahab

Son I'm way past the minimum

Entering millennium

My raps will hold a gat to your back

Like Palestinians

Ancient Abyssinia

Sure to hold the gideon

Official b boy gentlemen

Long term never the interim

Born inside the winter wind

Day after December 10

These simpletons they mentioned in

The synonym for feminine

Sweeter than some cinnamon

The danish rings by entenmann's

Rush up on adrenaline

They get they asses sent to them

Gentlemen 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

Hotter than tales of crack peddling

Making 'em woop

Like blue gelatin

Swing like duke ellington

Broader than barrington levy

Believe me

The hot apache red who burn down

Your chief teepee

You see me

One two three

Mos def and talib kweli

We came to rock it on to the tip top

Best alliance in hip hop


I said one two tree

Black Star shine eternally

We came to rock it on to the tip top

Because we ruling hip hop

Yes we is ruling hip hop

Talib kweli is ruling hip hop

Say we Black Star

We rule hip hop

Ah ahh ah ahh ahh
