It's the true and living with a youthful vengeance

from Gang Starr – Skills Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Guru opens with a Five Percent reference. The Nation of Gods and Earths believe that the black man is the true and living God rather than some mystery being in the sky.

The youthful vengeance sets the tone of the verse (and more broadly, the album). By this point, Gang Starr were elders in the game but they still had the same hunger and passion that they had in their youth. This whole album was them coming back to school the next generation.
