Mos Def Comments On Yung Berg and Jim Jones…

But, nearly a decade before their Motor City fails even happened. Although Mos was talking about how it goes down in his hometown of Brooklyn instead of Detroit, he definitely warned people to be careful whenever they go somewhere unfamiliar. The song is “Got,” from my favorite rap album of all time, Black On Both Sides. No need to even bold the key parts: literally the entire verse pertains. If they would’ve paid attention, Berg and Jim Jones may not have gotten…well, Got.

This one goes to all them Big Will cats
With ice on they limbs and big rims on they Ac’
You goin’ around town with your system bump
And your windows cracked low to profile and front
Now I like to have nice things just like you
But I’m from Brooklyn, certain shit you just don’t do
Like, high postin’ when you far from home
Or like, high postin’ when you all alone
Now, this would seem to be clear common sense
But, cats be livin’ off, sheer confidence
Like “Fuck that, picture them tellin’ me run that”
But acting invincible, just ain’t sensible
It’s nineteen ninety-nine, and there’s certain individuals
Swear they rollin’ hard and get robbed on principle
5 star general, flashin’ on your revenue
You takin’ a ride on the Downstate medical, Like (whooooooo)
Colorful sparks, yellow and blue
A full on attack and it’s happening to you
Wit’ nothing you can do but bust back and cop a plea
But five of them and one of you, that equals Got to me
