[Flav] Yo Chuck where you at G??
I think he went upstairs y'know
[DJ] A very furious mixture of noise
What Public Enemy producer Hank Shocklee calls
music's worst nightmare
"Hey he's a good kid"
[Chuck D] Air Hoodlum (repeat 2X)
[Tony D] Check check check the elevation (repeat 4X)
"A player that can leap with the best of them"
Risin up in the 'Velt Strong Island New York
The hood in case you did not know my base
There was a ballplayer who had all the skills
wit the pill to pay the piper, plus all the bills
Mick his first name, Mack the awesome game
Practiced in the heat, in the rain or in pain
Mick so quick, at six foot six
Down to be picked by anyone but the Celtics
Oh what a handle could score from the floor
with people bangin on him, or even hangin on him
But what he did best, above all the rest was...
"A player that can leap, with the best of them"
"As a high school standout..."
"The skywalker himself!"
"I felt, he could do, to make this an effective basketball team"
Grades nine and ten, Mickey Mack was all that
but in class his ass sat way in the back
How I know, cause I know, I used to flow wit the bro
He didn't mind I used to read him his own headline
Cause he could not read em his school wouldn't need em
if the lines wouldn'ta went like this
Mickey Mack jumped over the candlestick
His stack was his stats but his D was still wack
Grades eleven and twelve he found the wrong clientele and all
During class, he would dribble in the hall
But never got in trouble in school
