 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Mmm...yeah that sound kinda ill...word...yeah... Master Ace in the 
Studio with my man Marley Marl why'know... Got DJ Clash in the 
House...and my DJ Steady Pace on the cut right? [Doin' the rest] 
Right so I'm about to get into somethin' here... 

I'm Master Ace from a place 
Or should I say borough 
Where they like the bass to be thorough 
With the kick of a mule 
And the click of a tool with no bullets 
In the clip, it's the trick of a fool 
'cause he who fronts gets blunts you can't smoke 
To pull such stunts is no joke 
You better know where you are first 
Try to be rude and get chewed like a Starburst 
Now how much juice you got? 
You couldn't hang if I made a noose and knot 
Now try that on for size 
Too much baseball, too many apple pies 
Click your heels three times, kid 
And now you can see what my rhymes did 
Suckers and nerds come in herds just like cattle 
First I brand them, then I hand them a rattle 
So they can make a little noise in protest 
Those that fussed got bust wearin' no vest 
I told that MC to go West 
Let's see who can put on a show best 
The creep that tried to sleep got no rest 
I got a rap that can trap a slow pest 
Where's your girl? She's out on a hoe quest 
Fingernail tips, red lips, summer stroll dressed 
In a camisole she's a pro blessed 
With a great big backside but no breasts 
Welcome to the fire pit 
I know some kids that wish you'd worn some flyer shit 
'cause as soon as you stepped off the train 
They woulda put a big nine to your brain 
Be on the lookout, and yo, keep lookin' 
'Cause there's a battle goin' on in Brooklyn. 

Just like the water in a river flows, I'm fluid 
And as I do it, I deliver blows 
So MCs, you better keep your left up 
Try to fight and you might just get F'd up 
'Cause I'll terminate, as you learn a great lesson 
Don't ever try messin' or you'll earn a fate 
Worse than death 'cause I'm here to give it to ya 
You got a life, but don't know how to live it do ya? 
I live on a day-to-day basis 
Doin' my shows in all kinds of places 
You sit home with a frowned-up grill 
Talkin' 'bout who ya gonna kill 
Well listen up psychopath 
Put down the Uzi, stop tryin' to play Shaft 
'Cause life ain't a TV screen 
Bullets can puncture the skin, rupture the spleen 
And the stuff that flows out your veins ain't ketchup 
Sit back, relax as I sketch up 
The scene on a Brooklyn street on a late night 
It was a great fight to me 
I was just an innocent bystander 
Let me try and, uh, explain why I'd hand a 
Brother a big fat stick 
Well it was that, or get his black ass kicked 
See, it was five against one 
But this brother was too proud to run 
So he stood in like a trooper 
Fightin' against all odds against a group of 
Brothers that looked the same way he looked, friend 
It was a battle in Brooklyn.
