There lived a little boy who was misled
By a little Sha-tan and this is what he said
"Me and you kid we gonna make some cash
Jacking old beats and making the dash..."

from Black Star – Children's Story Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is the story of a young man who is influence by evil. A shatan is a devil or an evil entity of some sort. The shatan explains that they will get rich by sampling old music for pop oriented hip hop beats. This style of music became increasingly popular in the late 90s (around the time this album was released).
