featuring Jean Forte, Te Bass


Wyclef (speaking):

Guys, you have to be more gangster, more blood

more gun talk, more people dying, more hardcore

Enough, come on, I'm not feeling it man

More, more, man (I got you)

Alright, come with it (gunshot)


Man:

The million dollar question is, the million dollar question is...

S.. s.. street corner...


Wyclef (singing):

(this is what he said)


Have you ever heard the sound of a .44, at your door?

(this is what I said)

You got guns (you got guns), I got guns (uh-huh)

Meet me at the corner store

(this is what he said) (what does it all mean?)

After school, wild wild west

Even the teacher got a vest (this is what I said)

You can ask, on the block, ? (what does it all mean?)

Street Jeopardy... (here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)

Have you ever played Jeopardy...

(here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)


Wyclef:


Not me, it could never happen to me

Professor says what you want to do? Sell drugs or get a degree?

Looked at him and smiled with 32 gold teeth

And said what you make in a year, I make it in a week

Elementary at the time, I don't think of gettin caught

Sellin with degrees, pickups at the seaport (come on)

Once caught, you know the drill, it's military

I can't lie, it gets scary, you screamin' for your mommy (come on)

Truth or dare, beware, the game is never fair

I'm fallin and I can't get up, like a dead hare

You stare like you seen me before

Yup, you put the gat to my gut, stuck me up in the truck

And said, "Don't nothin move but the goods"

Caught an arrow in your back fuckin wit Robin Hood


John Forte:


This street life'll get you if the hustle don't fit you

Paranoid crews don't choose, nigga stick you

Arms and foldin macks to ya back tryin'a vick you

Belief in my crew wishin' foes never get through

And if so, Shalom, bless my soul, I'm home

I lived my life to the fullest, neighborhoods now known

A stone face is outta place when discussin B.I.

If I have a second thought, you ought not reply

I fought hot and sticky summers when the game started heatin

Competition, mega jail, and the well, who was eatin (oh well)

And every cell in the bang had a tenant

With each of them regrettin they was in it


Wyclef (singing):


Have you ever heard the sound of a .44, at your door?

You got guns, I got guns

Meet me at the corner store (what does it all mean?)

After school, wild wild west

Even the teacher got a vest

You can ask, on the block, ?(what does it all mean?)

Street Jeopardy... (here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)

(it's a shame in the game when you lose, son, they probably stoned ya today)

Have you ever played Jeopardy...

(here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)

(money doubles for your troubles though you lose some

in the end it's all pain)


Te Bass:


Yeah, yeah

I got up, sunny day, hood callin my name

Strange, I feel nauseous, memories of a pine cauffin

Seemed to me that I was dreamin

I'd been struck by a crazed fan after the concert, damn

Slugs form and I hurt, hopped up, checked my physical

But the pain was all mental, I slipped into

The shower, hopped out, got dressed, hit the blocks

Swarmed with cops, mad shots, hot shells dropped

You ever heard the sound of a .44 at your door?

Before, many times, I answered back with a milli

Now what? Now give me mine

It ain't no games like B.D.P.

My 9-meter go da-da-da-da-dang-hey hey


Wyclef (singing):


Have you ever heard the sound of a .44, at your door?

You got guns, I got guns

Meet me at the corner store (what does it all mean?)

After school, wild wild west

Even the teacher got a vest

You can ask, on the block, ? (what does it all mean?)

Street Jeopardy... (here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)

(it's a shame in the game when you lose, son, they probably stoned ya today)

Have you ever played Jeopardy...

(here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo, here we go yo)

(money doubles for your troubles though you lose some

in the end it's all pain)
