“Crack raised the murder rate in DC and Maryland.
We invested in that, it’s like we got Merril Lynched
and we been hanging from the same tree ever since.
Sometimes I feel that music is the only medicine,
so we cook it/cut it/measure it/bag it/sell it.
The fiends cop it.
Nowadays they can’t tell if
that’s that good shit?
We ain’t sure man.
Put the CD on ya tongue.
Yeah that’s pure man.”
— Kanye West, Crack Music
