Thieves In The Night

Lyrics

"Give me the fortune, keep the fame," said my man Louis
I agreed, know what he mean because we live the truest lie
I asked him why we follow the law of the bluest eye
He looked at me, he thought about it, was like, "I'm clueless, why?"

this is the essence of hip hop, when one song speaks so much truth that you have to listen to it over and over and analyze the lyrics. so powerful
