The Bar Exam

Artist: Common with Hi-Tek, J-Dilla, Marsha Ambrosius, and Nas
Track: Music For Life
Album: Hi-Tecknology Vol. 2: The Chip

Keep the music alive
The good and the strong survive
I closed my eyes and imagined I was Jackson Five
Randy and Michael goin' through life's cycle
Music allowed me to let life go
So vital to a youngster, comin' up amongst street hustlers
The big b to touch us, such a special place
Givin' the ghetto a taste of what freedom is like
I reached a point in my life where I was needin' the mic
No second guessin', self-expression in lessons learned
Aggression, became sessions where sessions burned
Put my soul into it, noww my feet is firm
And the game, where name is hard to earn
And hot cat's careers get scared and burn
Through the years, mine took a Godly turn
This is the story of my life here trapped in a verse
No matter the money or the movies, music is first, yea...
