Gangstarr Ft. K-Ci & JoJo – Royalty

Gangstarr Ft. K-Ci & JoJo – Royalty

One of the best Hip Hop and R&B duo’s on one track, what would you expect? From the classic ’98 Moment of truth,  Guru and Premo’s 5th and most acclaimed, album. The sample is Latimore’s Let’s Do It in Slow Motion from the It Ain’t Where You Been… It’s Where You’re Goin’ album from ’76. Nice title, which might have even inspired Rakim’s famous line “It ain’t where you from, it’s about where you at”.

Enjoy the tune, consider the chorus your motto, and have a good weekend y’all, peace!

“One of the meanest and the cleanest
And still I’m kind of feindish when I’m at this
Been doin this for eons peons best to catch this
vision of excellence precise rappin ability
Bout to make some dead presidents macking a million G
The money though, it’s got people actin funny yo
As soon as some niggaz get some light, they be like dummies yo
Products and puppets and pawns, gettin played out
When authentic niggaz step up, respect be layed out
Major effect to your sector, I’m the corrector
Live and direct, waving my mic like a sceptor
Supreme exalted, universal leader
Descendent of the kings and queens, the overseer
The overlord, cream of the crop, creme de la creme
Spent years buildin with cats in the streets, so they my men
Again, Gangstarr has done it

Wherever I go
I want to take nothing less than the best
Whatever I choose, I choose to do
I have to stand out from all the rest”
