    One of the most poetic songs I've ever heard in any genre. Unparalleled.

    ... man how much I miss them. Why is it that the good ones always leave on a high note and the bad ones stay forever...?! ^^

    To anyone who is new to the Hip-Hop scene this will probably sound like another generic track but if you listen closely there's very clever undertones and brilliantly phrased lyrics.

    If you like this song I would suggest you read the Bluest Eye. It's the inspiration for this song. [2]

    Hip-Hop at its best. They need to make another album.

    Mos Def's verse is probably my favorite of all time, along with AZ's verse in Life's a BItch
