[Talib Kweli] Yo you sent out the signal right? And this is what happened The voice of Hip Hop got heard Never comprimised this is how we put it down c`mon [Kool G Rap] Throughout my thuglife I`ve seen the ??? Like ??? fight over the role of dice Flashing whole lights when killas on a hiest So contight, get poltergiest over the bowl of Christ Who pulled the slice from cats aiming gats who showed the hiest Told you right she be the one that come and hold your mic Then aim it at the whole vice squad just like ??? Rollin like every prototype was dolomight One man recall his ice inside his gun hand he holds for life [Rah Digga] This for the ones with holes in they graves Waitin for they piece when the law misbehave I say we off ??? watch `em walk the beat Like you can`t cross streets make them all retreat (now) Judges and the jury be a little to appointed Making us defendants when we supossed to be the plantiffs Laugh now cause soon the thrill stops Heads get it on and start to kill cops [Sporty Theivz] I`m sober but the pull me over What i do yo? (what we do yo?) Poe-poe go i`m drivin to slow (cool yo) I torin` them explorin them (damn) For them that`s why i`m ignoring them (uh-oh) Bring like king skip Before they bring this to some Rodeny King shit Forget them fools Now make no sudden moves They reachin for they tools (let`s move) You buggin dude Kirk you ran the stop, word them pigs frontin Yo tell like you tell `em cousin we ain`t did nothin All they see is three blacks in a jeep with seats back Lookin for ??? packs how the blood dog can eat that They thirstin for a reason to blast you can`t beat that Gats and a badge to match you can beat that so bounce `em [Mos Def] My people unite and let`s all get down We gotta have what? love peace and understandin One god, One love, One light One aim, One voice, One fight My people unite, hop up and do it right We gotta have what? love peace and understandin One god, One love, One light One aim, One voice, One fight My people unite, hop up and do it right Do it right ya`ll, keep it tight ya`ll, do it right ya`ll, just do it
