SAT analogy question: how are the words "Legit" and "Quit" related? Answer: there is no relation. Unless you bring Israel into the picture. MC Hammer's 2legit2quit song is pro-Israel propaganda. The legitimacy of Israel as a state has been a controversial topic since its creation in 1948, and is denied by many countries around the world, including a long list of members of the United Nations.

What does legitimacy have to do with obstinance in any other situation? Nothing. In no other scenario is a regional hegemony's unwillingness to quit a question of legitimacy. Take the all-too-legitimate power of the United States, for example. Quitting is usually something the underdogs must consider, not the world's largest superpower. Potentially quitting is usually the problem for the rebels and insurgents.

Here are some song lyrics:
my people we don't know defeat we crush the strong and percolate the weak daily (everyday) we make our moves to improve our groove because we love to rule where we lay yo!..(Yo!) work and play we started at the bottom and now we're leading the way and yea!..(yea!) i'm havin a fit kickin it at the top because i'm too legit to quit
In what other scenario is oppressing the weak a question of legitimacy? The entire song goes on about the same theme. These are not simply man-of-words speaking in tongues word associations. There is a strong theme throughout this song and it is simply one of the legitimacy of hegemonial oppression.

More song lyrics:
step to the rhythm of a sho-nuff winner (winner) i been here before (yo!) i ain't no beginner (word) but i been new tried and true survival of the fittest yo! brought me through my crew (talk) we're ready to strike trained for the mission so believe the hype and sweat it (sweat it) cause you're gonna regret it the day that you dissed us you'll wish you never met us
