“Sure Shot”


Lyric: “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 the sisters and the wives and friends/I want to offer my love and respect to the end”
Why It’s Dope: One of MCA's most quoted lines, and one that hip-hop would do well to pay more attention to. The Beasties were progressive in many ways, but their attitudes toward women was something so far ahead that the majority of hip-hop still, unfortuntately, hasn't gotten there.

“Boddhisattva Vow”


Lyric: “So I pledge here before everyone who's listening/To make my every action for the good of all beings/For the rest of my lifetimes and even beyond/I vow to do my best, to do no harm”
Why It’s Dope: This song, set over Buddhist chants, could be considered preachy and lame, if it wasn't for the fact that MCA backed up every single thing he said on the track. It's a tricky line to walk, but it can work if done correctly, and Yauch was on top of his game.

“Sure Shot”


Lyric: “Timing like a clock when I rock the hip-hop/Top notch is my stock on the soapbox/I've got more rhymes than I've got grey hairs/And that's a lot because I've got my share”
Why It’s Dope: MCA was on top of his game throughout this entire album, but his reference to his own grey hairs is one that was both hilarious and reflected a passing concern at his own advancing age. We'll chalk it up as more clever than morbid, though.
