- Part I - Biggie Smalls - "It was all a dream..."
"... I used to read wordup magazine, Salt'n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin' pictures on my wall, Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped, Smokin' weed and bamboo, sippin' on private stock
Way back, when I had the red and black lumberjack, With the hat to match
Remember Rappin' Duke, duh-ha, duh-ha
You never thought that hip hop would take it this far..."
- Part II - Mos Def - "My Restlessness is my nemesis..."
"...It's hard to really chill and sit still
Committed to page, I write rhymes, Sometimes won't finish for days
Scrutinize my literature, from the large to the miniature, I mathematically add-minister
Subtract the wack, Selector, wheel it back, I'm feeling that
(Ha ha ha) From the core to the perimeter black..."
- Part III - Jay Z - "Who Wanna Bet Us..."
"...that we don't touch lettuce
Stack cheddars forever
Live treacherous, all the et ceteras
To the death of us: me and my confidants, we shine
You feel the ambiance, y'all niggas just rhyme
By the ounce, dough accumulates like snow
We don't just shine, we illuminate the whole show, you feel me?"
