20. “Street’s disciple, I rock beats that’s mega trifle/ And groove even smoother than moves by Villanova/ You’re still a soldier, I’m like Sly Stone in Cobra/ Packing like a Rasta in the weed spot, vocals’ll squeeze Glocks/ MC’s eavesdrop though they need not to sneak/ My poetry’s deep, I never fail/ Nas’s raps should be locked in a cell, it ain’t hard to tell”“It Ain’t Hard to Tell”
