Adjective Noun: Mental Stamina

"Watch the style but also peep the lyrics, my lightning, my thunder..." About time for some hiphop here at the Star Maker Machine, so let´s hand over the mic to Jeru The Damaja, self-proclaimed ´phonetician with more stamina than a Christian, my mind C3 H5 N3 O9 like nitroglycerine...´

Jeru hails from Brooklyn and started out as a protégé of Gang Starr, whose DJ Premier produced his killer debut The Sun Rises In The East (´94). The album cover incidentally shows the World Trade Center going up in in flames, years before 9/11... Mental Stamina is a sharp rapduet off of that album, with Afu Ra sharing the verbal gymnastics and vocabulary calisthenics.
