“When we start deceiving ourselves into thinking not that we want something or need something, not that it is a pragmatic necessity for us to have it, but that it is a moral imperative that we have it, then is when we join the fashionable madmen, and then is when the thin whine of hysteria is heard in the land, and then is when we are in bad trouble.”
“Fast cash should be the last resort so make it last for the risk you took
Trick, you shook your ass for some hundred dollar heels and a designer bag
Now that's ass backwards
All you got in the refrigertator is bratwurst.”
You too, Big Boi.

I heard this was chopped & beautifully reconfigured by Premier for Gangstarr's "Lovesick." Initially this was confusing, since you hear no trace of "Lovesick" above. Then I heard it was used in something called the "Upbeat Mix," from the 7" released in the UK. Aha. I guess Chrysalis would think to release an upbeat mix of a song called "Lovesick" for the British, both because they are a dour people and because their sense of humor is more subtle and refined than ours.
