about

This is a poem recited over Kanye West's beat featured on Common's Be album. The beat was for "The Corner". Check it out and download it.

lyrics

One work for a company, one work on the block
One handling paperwork, one slangin' that rock
Both got families, both punchin' that clock
Both makin' that paper, both watchin' the cops
One poppin' that glock, one gamblin' with stocks
One got boxed in, the other got locked
Both got homes, both got jobs
Both on borrowed time, both reading these lines
One tellin' them lies, one got corporate ties
One focus on risin' the other focus on hidin'
Both wine and dine, both committed crimes
Both livin' they lives, both love thier husbands and wives
One run for office, one work for the FED
One wrong move, they'll both end up dead
Both know the ledge based on the ground they standin' on
Both come together to chant down Babylon.
