Synopsis: Strike is a young city drug pusher under the tutelage of drug-lord Rodney Little, who, when not playing with model trains or drinking Moo for his ulcer, just likes to chill with his brothers near the benches outside the project houses. When a night man at a fast-food restaurant is found with four bullets in his body, Strike's older brother turns himself in as the killer. Det. Rocco Klein doesn't buy the story, however, and sets out to find the truth, and it seems that all the fingers point toward Strike & Rodney.

There is a place

That is so hard to find

Behind the walls

We build inside our minds

Some break the walls

Some break the rules

Some even

get things changed

And when they do

that leads to the truth

Yet questions still remain

But all that it's saying

Somewhere in life

there's a joy to be

Between the hope

and reality

There in a mirror

and then the street

That's where you'll find

People in search of a life

And what of love

Is that a point of view?

And when you're alone

It can seem so confused

That's when a friend

can pull you in

Lend you a helping hand

But what happens when

your only friend

Sells you out in the end

How do you face it?

Somewhere in life

there's a joy to be

Between the hope and reality

There in a mirror

and then the street

That's where you'll find

People in search of a life

In search of a life


Searchin '

Lookin' in a bottle

Lookin' in a needle

Lookin' in the street

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Searchin '




Straight from Brooklyn,

better known as Crooklyn

Never take us short

cos Brooklyn's the borough

Straight from Brooklyn,

better known as Crooklyn

Never take us short

cos Brooklyn's the borough

We did it like that

and now we do it like this

We did it like that

and now we do it like this


Now the clock hits

Who got the cocaine?

Don't tell me it's the

little kids on Soul Train

The metaphor sent

from my brain to my jaw

It comes from other places,

not the typical places

Journalistic values are yellow

and then the court falters

You watch Channel Zero

and that bitch Barbara Walters

She'll have you believe

black invented crack

When President Lyndon had to form a

law way back in '63 with Kennedy

Yes, the double-cross

Remember that's when they

blew his fucking head off

Vietnam vets come back

lookin' like one-armed pets

Mixin' thoughts, purer text

No picket fence,

no job, no ATM in the car

Blue collar

comes to bourgeois

Depressed in your chest...

Chuck D is the bomb, boy.


Get the f*ck outta here.

Chuck D ain't shit.

That n*gger Chuck D is assed out,

and the rest of Public Enemy.

Niggers ain't shootin' shit up,
