Take It Personal [DVD]
by Gang Starr



I never thought that you would crab me
Undermine me, and backstab me
But I can see clearly now the rain is gone
The pain is gone but what you did was still wrong

There was a few times I needed your support
But you tried to play me like an indoor sport
Like racquetball, tennis, fool, whatever
All I know is you attempted to be clever

Nevertheless, cleverness can`t impress
'Cause now you`ve been expose like a person undressed
'Cause I see through you, I`m the Guru
Now what you gonna do when I step to you

And when I pay you back I`ll be hurting you
This ain`t no threat so take it personal

Rap is an art you can`t own no loops
It`s how you hook em up and the rhyme style troop
So don`t even think you could say someone bit
Off your weak beat come on you need to quit

I flip lines and kick rhymes that never sound like yours
There oughtta be laws against you yapping your jaws
Originality overflows from in me
And the truth is, that you wish you could live the

Life I live and kick the lyrics I kick
But bear in mind that you can`t think as quick
So Premier drops a beat, for me to say verses to
And if I sound doper then take it personal

Don`t be mad cause I don`t come around the way
Like I used to, I don`t have time these days
I`m keeping busy making power moves
Don`t try to say I don`t remember you

You shouldn`t let your jealousy show like that
I stopped coming by, cause of the way you act
Telling my business to kids I don`t even know
You`re like a daytime talk show, and that`s low

So you can tell everyone, that I`m jerking you
And if you don`t like it, take it personal
