Fuck that, not because we have to, I want to Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

The Mobb doesn’t make music for money and say they hustle to help sell records: it’s a life choice, purely hedonistic

To hear the sound of the crowd roar for more Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Provoking this kind of crowd reaction would be quite exhilirating

Your music's been around the World movin'
And it comes right back around on the ground, don't it?
Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Nas may have had an internationally successful career, but P believes one’s path to be circular — really it comes back down to where you are from, and in this case, happened on the street. Nas is an impostor (he thinks/thought)

Got your platinum plaques to prove it Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Some of Nas' albums have enough sales to warrant going ‘platinum’, which in the United States is 1,000,000 copies. However, if you were to go platinum in Uruguay, should you be so inclined, you would only need to sell 4,000 copies. Even post-96 Mobb Deep could do that

In Nas' own words, he’s the first rapper to bring a platinum plaque back to the projects. So yes, he can prove it, first-hand if you want

Alot of gats on your DAT, taped southpaw Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Guns feature on Nas' tape, not physically (DAT = Digital Audio Tape), but are hanging to the left — not to be used

Man, it sound bad on the pad, what happened in the street? Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Again, like Jigga in The Takeover, P acknowledges that Illmatic was a hot album, but feels it is entirely undermined by the fabrication of events and details it is composed of

At Summer Jam 2001, shortly after this song was recorded, Jay-Z, who had separate beef with Prodigy, released this picture

The QB self-proclaimed gangster dressed as a ballerina… Kind of takes some of the bite away from his lyrics

You's a notebook crook, with loose leaf beef Thun & Kicko by Cormega (Ft. Prodigy)

Prodigy has a wonderful tendency to start his verses with banging lines

“I got you stuck off the realness”

“There’s a war going on outside no man is safe from”

“The saga begins, begin war, I draw first blood be the first to set it off”

“I break bread, ribs, hundred dollar bills”

This is no exception. Similarly to Jay-Z, he calls out Nas for inventing his status as a criminal in Illmatic, and more prominently, It Was Written. Nas' beef and drug sales was only on paper, and never manifested on the streets
