Lot of times at the shows people hardly came
I just took it in stride as part of the game
But inside people down with me started to change
It was a couple things, lil' syrup, lil' pills
Shit was hard when The Roots were starting out as a hip-hop act in Philly, and Malik B took that harder than Black Though — Malik turned to drugs.
