[Kanye West]
Uh, Uh
Lets take it back to basics
When shit gets worse we converse
How we need a New Balance before the lines get crossed like Asics
Just look at what we got, if we don't shoot the Reeboks
This is a beat that no flow can detox
So the respect is due like my Louie back
I don't wanna have to check you
I'm ???? and Pelle Pelle Leathers
Some say, my beats made the Bulls play better
I say, black on black is the hate that hate made
Sara Lee with the dough I'm talkin' bout the cake maid
McDonalds with the flow, served over over a billion
You've seen the video, words over the building
Uh, I wish I could give you this feeling, I wish I could give you this feeling
And when The Workout Plan ain't work out man
Me and Common is back on the corners again
On the corner

[Common]
Uh, yeah
Uh, yeah
I open my eyes
The corner is like African tribes
The black is subsidized
The black enterprize
The passion arise
The youth fantasize, who got some cash in they eyes
If youth dies, mamas askin' rationalize
Tryna' build a spot where ghetto bastards can rise
The ghetto has been bastardized by those who capitalize
Wonder if its a plan that the master devised
To bring his people to a land where the blacks are despised
On the corner
