[Mos Def] History Shoutin' it every day y'all (right now) Everyday (right now) Right now (good mornin', Vietnam!) Listen Brooklyn wins again It's the Stuy, it's the Bush, dem niggaz again Ta' Kweli, Mighty Def, and that's 'sta on the guest lock Kanye, you're the dope man in hip hop, now let's rock Now roll out niggaz, my hometown niggaz I get it good in your hood so slow down niggaz Watch the speed though, man, you better let ease off A street talk into a collision course with these walls - bam! They don't move, don't pray, don't lose, don't sleep Light passin', light fashion, light pappers that pass part a gun Black hands up ?? Black guns up ?? Dyin' wish is to touch the air Seekin' heaven that wasn't here Eyes will not see another year It's another day It's the same fight Dip around, sound the bell Mix it up and ?? where you live it up the beat And get risen up you're knocked down get it back and get it up Get off of queer street and get with us And get clear where we did it From the heart, from the people From the top, from the jeep From the gut, from the street From my soul to the mic to the essence Say in my absence you feel the presence, exactly I make contact with shorter emcee Me and mine we don't just get by We get free and that's ready [Mos -- nigga] [Jay-Z] Just to get by Nigga I sold coke, nigga I pushed lah Carried a fo'five Claimed I was ready to die Promised never to cry Held it all inside Reality was too much to take so I Kept my mind fry Slimmed for most of mine Soon as I closed my eyes Then I woke up behind Nigga either I load up these nines Or blow up with rhymes cause this flow of mine is like blow up but lines of coca And your folks think Hov' just wrote stuff to rhyme Nah, I'm a poster for what happened seein your moms Doin five dollars worth to work just to get a dime So pardon my disposition Why should I listen to a system that never listened to me?
