The long walk will burn your bare heels
Hope you wore your boots
The game camouflaged like army suits
But I can see it more clear cause I came with the Coup in here
Ring the alarm and form the troops

Shoulder the mic, still feel colder than before

Send 'em out into the world, go to war in a fluke
Eye to eye with the enemy you sworn to shoot
Now I'm comin' at ya neck, sick of hearing something wrong with me
Motherfucker something's wrong with you
With a Chief just way too smart to question
The enemy the brothers of a dark complexion
The governments of the world is shark infested
They heavy on weaponry like Charlton Heston

That was one of those things that’s still applicable… I was just dying to use that line some place where it would see the light of day. I put that carrying arms or packing fire or Charlton Heston reference on like three verses.

[Verse 2 -Boots] My Favorite Mutiny by The Coup (Ft. Black Thought & Talib Kweli) 4

If it’s someone I respect, it doesn’t even matter what level you stand on. The Coup was just super cool. We went to South Africa with Black August and Boots was someone who came with that. If you’re a friend and you make good music and it’s something I stand for, then I’m going to work with you. And that’s what My Favorite Mutiny was.

I ain't on some oh I'm a celebrity
I deal with the real, so if it's artificial let it be
You Got Me by The Roots (Ft. Erykah Badu & Eve) 1

That’s exactly what I mean. I keep it real. The celebrities I interact with aren’t aghast because they’re a celebrity. That people should be that way or act a certain way because they’re a celebrity. I know that some celebrity comes with the territory. I don’t like attention. I don’t like people to look at me or even talk to me really. I’m a super introvert. Thank god I have Questlove who is willing to take pictures and do interviews. And I don’t think it would work to be in a group with anyone else.

Hold your flix, I'm not for the photo op's
It's Black, code name Yaphet Kotto ock
Boom! by The Roots (Ft. Dice Raw) 1

I do a bunch of impressions. Back in the day I used to do these records where 15 rappers would do it and I would do all the verses. And when they’d begin, the music would change to the artist, it was called Posse Production. Jungle Brothers, Qtip, Pete Rock, Chuck D, Biz, Kane… anyone who had like a unique sound I’d do.

Me and J Period do something we call Live Mixtapes. He’ll spin and I’ll try to rap in the voice of Rakim or whoever.
