Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal

Morreu Guru, um dos meus músicos de sempre e sobre quem escrevi algumas (poucas) vezes por estas lides (aqui, ali, acolá e outra vez aqui). E também um dos maiores responsáveis pelo meu mergulho na música negra norte-americana, com tudo o que isso implica - não só o hip-hop, mas o jazz, a soul, o funk, etc., e que pode ser apreciado nas sua magnífica colecção Jazzmatazz (sobretudo os primeiros dois volumes). Também por esse abrir de portas, o meu profundo obrigado.
Até sempre.

"Actions have reactions, don't be quick to judge
You may not know the harships people don't speak of
It's best to step back, and observe with couth
For we all must meet our moment of truth

Sometimes you gotta dig deep, when problems come near
Don't fear things get severe for everybody everywhere
Why do bad things happen, to good people?
Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil
The situation that I'm facin, is mad amazin
To think such problems can arise from minor confrontations
Now I'm contemplatin in my bedroom pacin
Dark clouds over my head, my heart's racin
Suicide? nah, I'm not a foolish guy
Don't even feel like drinking, or even gettin high
Cause all that's gonna do really, is accelerate
The anxieties that I wish I could alleviate
But wait, I've been through a whole lot of other shit, before
So I oughta be able, to withstand some more
But I'm sweatin though, my eyes are turnin red and yo
I'm ready to lose my mind but instead I use my mind
I put down the knife, and take the bullets out my nine
My only crime, was that I'm too damn kind
And now some skanless motherfuckers wanna take what's mine
But they can't take the respect, that I've earned in my lifetime
And you know they'll never stop the furious force of my rhymes
So like they say, every dog has it's day
And like they say, God works in a mysterious way
So I pray, remembering the days of my youth
As I prepare to meet my moment of truth"

"Moment of Truth", Gangstarr.

"Dear momma let me start off with you
I know there ain't a thing you wouldn't do,
to try and pull me through.
And if there's anything good to be said about me,
Than it's true that I owe it all to you".

"Greateful", Pete Philly and Perquisite.
