Get ready! To forgive and forget./
Get ready! Live 'n let live for a sec!/
Let em talk bout respect - when they don't know the half./
Think they got it all figured out, but can't do the math./
They wanna clash 'n beef, when I ask for peace./
Check my calendar kid, time runs fast this week!/
I live great on tour, while you hate cus you bored./
If you got so much to say, get in the booth and record!/
But get ready! Your kind will debate bout you./
Get ready! Don't mind what they say bout you./
Get ready! You'll find it true, when you grow up a little,/
The war is not between me and you. I'm sad to say it's way bigger./
It's not bout rap-music, rowdy kids or graf crews, it's/
Big business, big issues, let's not loose it!/
Don't let em kill kids, drop charges on real pigs,/
Drop bombs and act like it's a freedom fight - they guilty!/
They filthy, and you talk bout who's the realest emcee?/
Who'll give a fuck when there's no freedom of speech./
Chorus
For when we step on stage - Get ready!/ For when this shit goes down - Get ready!/ For when you meet the love of your life - Get ready!/ For your unborn children - Get ready!
This shit is bigger than hiphop we gotta kill cops, and build plots./
Move into mountain hilltops./
Leave Babylon cus on the route we on/
We're heading for disaster faster than the Autobahn./
I'm out to warn, scream and shout: it's on!/
Start the revolution now or ain't no doubt we gone./
Then what good did it do to rep our hoods little crew./
This other rappers, say: I'm better than you!/
When music is a mission not a competition./
Now I hear you dissin', frontin' and bitchin'/
About: he probably wack, can't make a partytrack./
Fuck that. I pump the beat till the beast get a heartattack./
A part of rap like battlin' and all of that,/
But before I kill emcees I kill the police./
I'm really for peace, love and equality,/
But it seems the police love to follow me,/
Because I' m hiphop. I never felt the pressure from the hype./
Not the type to give a fuck - spit it in the mike!/
Cus I never aspired to be the best of all,/
Only here to inspire the rest of y'all/
... To stand tall. Get up, stand up for your rights./
My people know what I mean. Yeah, sure you're right!/
Unite, focus on the real things in life./
Stay away from all irrelevant things like:/
Who got the most dough? Who got the best flow?/
Who gives a fuck when it's our turn to go? Get ready!
Chorus
For when the music hits you - Get ready!/ For when the judgement hits you - Get ready!/ For when the truth hits you - Get ready!/ For when love hits you - Get ready!/ For when the people fight back - Get ready!/ For when nature strikes back - Get ready!/ For the Looptroop terrorists- Get ready! For David vs. Goliath - Get ready!
When your friends is gone who's gonna save you?/
And when the money is gone who's gonna pay you?/
And when you keep telling the same lies as they do,/
Who's gonna believe what you say's true?/
Cus in the end when the judgement comes,/
Who cares if you're a millionaire, rap star or bum?/
What's that car gonna do when you lost your girl?/
What's that cigar gonna do when it's war in the world?/
What good is green when love is washed away?/
What good is cream when happiness never come to stay?/
When shit just don't seem to go your way/
Who is there tellin' you everything is gonna be okay?/
While you were talking about whether this or that's true,/
We gave the people a voice and somebody to look up to./
I don't live and die for diamonds and ends/
And I don't live and die for the four elements./
Yeah, I rap but is hip hop my life?/
Who gives a fuck when millions of kids starve tonight. Get ready..
Chorus
For when it's time to speak up - Get ready!/ For when it's time to shut up - Get ready!/ For when the world is burning - Get ready!/ For when it's time to stand up - Get ready!/ For when the judgement comes - Get ready!/ For when the police comes - Get ready!/ For when they drop the bombs - Get ready!/ For when you hear the next song - Get ready!/

Get Ready Lyrics

Looptroop – Get Ready Lyrics

Get ready! To forgive and forget./
Get ready! Live 'n let live for a sec!/
Let em talk bout respect - when they don't know the half./
Think they got it all figured out, but can't do the math./
They wanna clash 'n beef, when I ask for peace./
Check my calendar kid, time runs fast this week!/
I live great on tour, while you hate cus you bored./
If you got so much to say, get in the booth and record!/
But get ready! Your kind will debate bout you./
Get ready! Don't mind what they say bout you./
Get ready! You'll find it true, when you grow up a little,/
The war is not between me and you. I'm sad to say it's way bigger./
It's not bout rap-music, rowdy kids or graf crews, it's/
Big business, big issues, let's not loose it!/
Don't let em kill kids, drop charges on real pigs,/
Drop bombs and act like it's a freedom fight - they guilty!/
They filthy, and you talk bout who's the realest emcee?/
Who'll give a fuck when there's no freedom of speech./
