One of my favorite albums of all time.

'thieves in the night' and 'respiration' to me are pure poetry.two of the most meaningful tracks created within hip hop imo.

Not strong (Only aggressive)
Not free (We only licensed)
Not compassionate, only polite (Now who the nicest?)
Not good but well behaved
(Chasing after death, so we can call ourselves brave?)
Still living like mental slaves
Hiding like thieves in the night from life
Illusions of oasis making you look twice
Hiding like thieves in the night from life
Illusions of oasis making you look twice

''So much on my mind that I can't recline
Blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine
Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine
Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline
Heard the bass ride out like an ancient mating call
I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathin
Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening
Sigh before we die like the last train leaving''

    ''Black like my baby girl's stare
    Black like the veil that the muslimina wear
    Black like the planet that they fear, why they scared?
    Black like the slave ship belly that brought us here
    Black like the cheeks that are roadways for tears
    That leave black faces well traveled with years''

    I felt that chick Jane Doe had the hardest verse. always wondered what happened to her.

    Hail Mary, 'matta fact hail Jane Niggaz take my name in vain like I was cocaine My affirmations kill emcees like assassination Bringin' you pain until you wish you had a vaccination

    Or vaccine, I shine like Vaseline Gas plays like petroleum, walk over them like linoleum My vocab expand like a rubber band Walkin' nekkid through the motherland, give the finger to my brother man

    Niggaz just don't understand my reasons, I transcend like season And scar these rappers like legion It's treason, my suspension attract attention I'm ventin', givin' these chicken heads detention

    Did I mention my name, yo, go by the Jane Doe Drenched in Polo, chill downtown in Soho You don't know, this is just half my potential Check my credentials, come harder than sequential

    It's essential, you listen, I drive, you a pedestrian They bless me on the track 'cause I attack with' the estrogen Rhyme against the best a men, Jane burn it up When you hear it in the whip, tell your man to turn it up

    Nights like this...I wish...Raindrops would faaalllll!!!

    Classic ..... When I first heard Definition, I thought it was dope and they did that BDP sample mad justice and I knew I was gonna cop ........ but, then I heard Mos snap on Re-Definition, I dropped everything I was doing and went straight to the store to cop the cd with the quickness ...... played the joint all the way through ...... every time
