I had no time

to sit down at home

and write.

I am a writer, but...

it's spontaneous.

A studio's a bathroom,

a place I go to release...

unless I get into my pocket

and I set aside time

to be in here

and not do anything else

but record until I get it done.

At that point,

it becomes my spaceship, man.

Uh, rest in peace

to Black Just

Riding through

Jamaica, Queens

In his black truck,

of his dome

You know, I spit one

of Big rhymes,

and I'm like,

"Yo, did you hear that?

Like, that's why

I will go with him.

Now you tell me

one of Pac rhymes

that's better than that,"

and she said, "'Dear Mama'!"

That's all she said,

which meant that that song

meant something deep to her.

Lyrics, yeah...

in hip-hop, deep.

Whenever we write,

we trying to change something.

You know, we get

this feeling inside

that we can't really explain...

them chemicals in our body

so a lot of times,

I can almost feel,
