"The World Renown" lyrics - 1982

"The World Renown"

[Intro: Statik Selektah talking]
The year was '82
Lawrence, Massachusetts
Same year as the Air Force One, Wild Style, Michael Jackson's Thriller
It was a good year
You know, seeing that we grew up off that Gang Starr
Pete Rock & CL Smooth
Kool G Rap and Polo
I think hip hop needs a new duo
Ayo, Term, you ready?

[Verse 1: Termanology]:
Ayo, it's Term and Statik, collapsin' radio speaker sets
We lacin' these reefer heads with lyrics and beats to sniff
It's Guru and Preme and 'em
CL, Pete and 'em
In the future, the truth is we took our steez from them
A little mixture, extreme lyrics and bangin' beats
