Every morning I took the train to High Street Station
Doing homework on the train, what a fucked up situation
On the way back up, hearing battle tapes
Through the underground, underneath the sky scrapes
Like Harlem World Battles on the Zulu Beat Show
Refers to Mike Diamond’s subway journey—as a teenager, to High Street Station and school—listening to battling Emcees on the Zulu Beat Show.
