    As the wind sets the mood, it’s time to let off A sucker tried to play me,
    the E I’m not soft I’m very hardcore, droppin bombs like Warsaw It reminds
    me, back in 1984 when I went to a party with the master plan to step up,
    and put the mic in my hand Everybody was there, from junior high to high
    schools Dyin to get busy, because I knew I had the tools. – Erick Sermon

    I like It Wasn’t Me It Was The Fame. Props to them for sampling The
    Stylistics People Make The World Go Round. I like their Unfinished Business
    album cover. AZ sampled this EPMD song on his Sugar Hill remix.
