I dominate break loops,

from Nas – It Ain't Hard to Tell Lyrics on Rap Genius


This song was recorded back when people still used “breaks” — percussion-heavy instrumental interludes — instead of the beats produced by computer today. To prove that Nas really is “the smooth criminal on beat breaks”, the instrumental cuts out the samples that had been in the background for most of the song and allows Nas to rap strictly over a drum kick for the rest of the verse.
