"Sure Shot"

1994

"I want to say a little something that's long overdue/ The disrespect to women has got to be through/ To all the mothers and sisters and the wives and friends/ I want to offer my love and respect to the end"

"Root Down"

1994

"Bob Marley was a prophet for the freedom fight/ 'If dancin' prays to the Lord then I shall feel alright'/ I'm feeling good to play a little music/ Tears running down my face 'cause I love to do it'

"Intergalactic"

1998

"Well I got to keep it going keep it going full steam/ Too sweet to be sour too nice to be mean/ On the tough guy style I'm not too keen/ To try to change the world I will plot and scheme"

"An Open Letter To NYC"

2004

"Dear New York I hope you're doing well / I know a lot's happen and you've been through hell / So, we give thanks for providing a home / Through your gates at Ellis Island we passed in droves"

"Make Some Noise"

2011

"Pass me the scalpel, I'll make an incision/ I'll cut off the part of your brain that does the bitching/ Put it in formaldehyde and put it on the shelf/ And you can show it to your friends and say that's my old self"
