Stetsasonic — Took Place In East New York lyrics

[ Human Mix Machine Wise ]
My name is Wise Supreme and I don't eat pork
I reside in Chilltown but came from East New York
From a time of bein broke to a life of luxury
Stay in the house or you won't see much of me
But when I'm out I go to Brooklyn just to chill and max
And from my head to my toes I wear all black
No, I'm not a criminal, playin with my digital
Lay back in my chair while collectin my residuals
Cash that I made during winter, summer, fall, spring
But gettin dissed by a foe is just a small thing
Rememberin the time I was goin to a talent show
I saw my ex-partner who's now a foe, you know

Anyway, the brother said hi, cool
This took place in Jefferson High School
I was here to observe all the talented acts
He was there to try to battle, here's the facts
Was sittin in my seat, the host grabs a mic
'Stet's Human Mix Machine versus Essence tonight'
I said, 'What? Who set this up? '
The crowd started goin crazy as they start to erupt
Between every act of people doin their show
Essence got on the mic and said, 'Wise, let's go'
I didn't wanna battle, why waste my time?
He got on stage, kicked beats while his mc started rhymin
