---> Play Verse Riff 2 over:
        buck there's no luck, then there's no luck
        Then again if you came for drama then I can't understand
        Music critics, music critics
        Not afraid of a guy who'll tell you he's never been in a mix
        Been in a mix, been in a mix
        From the grass roots so big up to our friends
        Every crew every click and every posse
        Big up to all the heads not of hypocrisy

        Cosmic remix, cosmic remix,
        From the mysterious blue planet we can breathe anywhere
        Underwater, out in space or in L.A.
        Your polluted air's no problem for these homeys
