"Red Rum, Red Rum,

Is this some conspiracy?

Crucified for no sins

Put an image, beneath me

What's within my plans for life

It all seems so unreal

I'm a man, couldn't have feel this world

Left in my misery

 

The reverend he turned to me

Without a tear in his eyes

Nothing new for him to see

I didn't ask him why

I will remember

The love our souls had

Sworn to make

Now I watch the falling rain

All my mind can see

Now is your (face)

 

Well I guess

You took my youth

And gave it all away

Like the birth of a

New found joy

This love would end in rage

And when she died

I couldn't cry

The pride within my soul

You left me incomplete

All alone as the

Memories now unfold

 

Believe the word

I will unlock my door

And pass the

Cemetary gates

 

Sometimes when I'm alone

I wonder all aloud

If you're watching over me

Some place far abound

I must reverse my life

I can't live in the past

Then set my soul free

Belong to me at last

 

Through all those

Complex years

I thought I was alone

I didn't care to look around

And make this world my own

And when she died

I should've cried and spared myself some pain...

You left me incomplete

All alone as the memories still remain

 

The way we were

The chance to save my soul

And my concern is now in vain

 

Believe the word

I will unlock my door

And pass the

Cemetary gates

 

The way we were

The chance to save my soul

And my concern is now in vain

 

Believe the word

I will unlock my door

And pass the

Cemetary gates

 

Gates...

Gates..."

 

Pantera-Cemetary Gates

All of the lyrics are awesome.

Creedence Clearwater Revival- Fortunate Son

 

Some folks are born made to wave the flag

Ooh, they're red, white, and blue

And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"

They point the cannon right at you

 

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no senator's son

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no fortunate one

 

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,

Lord, dont they help themselves

But when the tax man comes to the door,

Lord the house looks like a rummage sale

 

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no millionaire's son

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no fortunate one

 

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,

Ooh, they send you down to war

And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"

They only answer "More! More! More!"

 

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no military son

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no fortunate one

 

It ain't me, it ain't me

I ain't no fortunate one

"two vibrant hearts could change."

 

Avenged Sevenfold- Unholy Confession.

"I wish I could be the one,

the one who won't care at all

But being the one on the stand,

I know the way to go, no one's guiding me.

When time soaked with blood turns its back,

I know it's hard to fall.

Confined in me was your heart

I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me."

Damn, when did this thread get resurrected?

 

Anyway, time to post some lyrics I was too lazy to post a month ago. I'll start it off with one of my favorite hip-hop songs OF ALL TIME:

 

"I Ain't No Joke" by Eric B. & Rakim

I ain't no joke, I use to let the mic smoke

Now I slam it when I'm done and make sure it's broke

When I'm gone, no on gets on, cause I won't let

nobody press up, and mess up, the scene I set

I like to stand in the crowd, and watch the people wonder, "Damn!"

But think about it, then you'll understand

I'm just an addict, addicted to music

Maybe it's a habit, I gotta use it

Even if it's jazz or the quiet storm

I hook a beat up, convert it into hip-hop form

Write a rhyme in grafitti and, every show you see me in

Deep concentration, cause I'm no comedian

Jokers are wild, if you wanna be tamed

I treat you like a child, then you're gonna be named

Another enemy, not even a friend of me

Cause you'll get fried in the end, when you pretend to be

competing, cause I just put your mind on pause

And I complete when, you compare my rhyme with yours

I wake you up and as I stare in your face you seem stunned

Remember me? The one you got your idea from

But soon you start to suffer, the tune'll get rougher

When you start to stutter, that's when you had enough of

biting it'll make you choke, you can't provoke

You can't cope, you shoulda broke, because I ain't no joke

 

I got a question -- it's serious as cancer

Who can keep the average dancer

hyper as a heart attack, nobody smilin

Cause you're expressin, the rhyme that I'm stylin

This is what we all sit down to write

You can't make it so you take it home, break it and bite

Use pieces and bits of all my hip-hop hits

Get the style down pat, then it's time to switch

Put my tape on pause, and add some more to yours

Then you figured, you're ready for the neighborhood chores

A E-M-C-E-E don't even try to be

When you come up to speak, don't even lie to me

You like to exaggerate, dream and imaginate

Then change the rhyme around, that can aggravate me

So when you see me come up, freeze

Or you'll be one of those seven MC's

They think that I'm a new jack, but only if they knew that

they who think wrong are they who can't do that

style that I'm doin, they might ruin

Patterns of paragraphs, based on you and

your offbeat DJ, if anything he play

sound familiar, I'll wait 'til E. say

"Play 'em," so I'ma have to diss and bro

you can get a smack for this, I ain't no joke

 

I hold the microphone like a grudge

B'll hold the record so the needle don't budge

I hold a conversation cause when I invent

I nominated, my DJ, "The Presdient"

When I see you I'll, kick a freestyle, goin steadily

So pucker up, and whistle "My Melody"

But whatever you do, don't miss one

There'll be another rough rhyme after this one

Before you know it, you're followin and fiendin

Waiting for the punchline, to get the meanin

Like before, the middle of my story I'm tellin

Nobody beats the R, so stop yellin

Save it, put it in your pocket for later

Cause I'm "Moving the Crowd," and B'll wreck the fader

No interruptions 'til the mic is broke

When I'm gone... then you can joke!

Cause everything is real on a serious tip

Keep playin, and I get furious quick

And I'll take you for a walk through hell

Feed your dome -- then watch your eyeballs swell

Guide you out of triple stage darkness

When it get dark again... then I'ma spark this

microphone, cause the heat is on, you see smoke

And I'm finished when the beat is gone, I'm no joke

--Rakim

"Paid In Full" by Eric B. & Rakim

Thinkin' of a master plan

Cuz ain't nuthin' but sweat inside my hand

So I dig into my pocket, all my money's spent

So I dig deeper but still comin up with lint

So I start my mission: leave my residence

Thinkin' how could I get some dead presidents

I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid

So I think of all the devious things I did

I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain't nuthin' funny

Stop smiling, be still, don't nuthin' move but the money

But now I learned to earn 'cause I'm righteous

I feel great, so maybe I might just

Search for a 9 to 5, if I strive

Then maybe I'll stay alive

So I walk up the street whistlin' this

Feelin' out of place 'cause, man, do I miss

A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape of

Me and Eric B., and a nice big plate of

Fish, which is my favorite dish

But without no money it's still a wish

'Cause I don't like to dream about gettin' paid

So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

To now test to see if I got pull

Hit the studio, 'cause I'm paid in full

--Rakim

Aaron Lewis from Staind has written some incredible lyrics. Too many great songs to choose from to pick just one to type here. It's scary sometimes how close to home some of his lyrics hit me and the intensity and feeling he puts into singing them just blows me away.

It seems that nothing ever goes my way

Since you broke my heart when you left that day

There's nowhere to go so just stay with me

Cuz since you've been gone

I've been begging you please

 

To tell me you're not alright

and you needed to come home

since you've been gone

To tell me you're not ok

and you needed me all along

since you've been gone

I need to hear from you

since you've been gone

 

It seems that everytime you swear to god you're leaving

I'm down on my knees begging you to stay

there's nowhere to go so just stay with me

cuz since you've been gone

I've been begging you please

 

To tell me you're not alright

and you needed to come home

since you've been gone

To tell me you're not ok

and you needed me all along

since you've been gone

 

Please don't leave me here alone

just stay a while and make me smile

please don't leave me here alone

just stay a while and maybe smile

 

since you've been gone

I need to hear from you

since you've been gone

I need to hear you say

 

tell me you're not alright

and you needed to come home

tell me you're not ok

and you needed me all along

since you've been gone

I need to hear you say

since you've been gone

One of the best all time rap songs.

 

F**k tha Police by the almighty NWA

 

F**k the police commin' straight from the underground

A young n***a got it bad 'cause I'm brown

And not the other color

Some police think

They have the authority to kill a minority

F**k that s**t'cause I ain't the one

For a punk motherf**ker with a badge and a gun

To be beaten on and thrown in jail

We can go toe to toe in the middle of a cell

F**kin' with me 'cause I'm a teenager

With a little bit of gold and a pager

Searchin' my car, lookin' for the product

Thinkin' every n***a is sellin' narcotics

You'd rather see me in the pen

Than me and Lorenzo rollin' in a Benz-o

Beat up police, out of shape

And when I'm finished, Bring the yellow tape

To tape off the scene of the slaughter

Still gettin' Swoll' off bread and water

I don't know if they f*gs or what

Search a n***a down and grabbin' his nuts

And on the other hand

Without a gun, they can't get none

But don't let it be a black and a white one

'Cause they'll slam ya down to the street top

Black police showin' out for the white cop

Ice Cube will Swarm

On any motherf**ker in a blue uniform

Just 'cause I'm from the CPT

Punk police are afraid of me, huh

A young n***a on the warpath

And when I finish, it's gonna be a bloodbath

Of cops dyin' in L.A.

Yo, Dre, I got something to say ...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

 

 

F**k the police and Ren said it with authority

Because the n***as on the street is a majority

A gang - that's wit whoever i'm steppin'

And a motherf**kin' weapon is kept in

A stand-by for the so called law

Wishin' Ren was a n***a that they never saw

Lights all flashin' behind me

But they're scared of a n***a so they mace to blind me

But that s**t don't work, I just laugh

Because it gives 'em a hint not to step in my path

To police, I'm sayin', "F**k you punk!"

Readin' my rights and s**t - it's all junk

Pullin' out a silly club so you stand

With a fake-assed badge and a gun in your hand

But take off the gun so you can see what's up

And we'll go at it, punk, and I'm a' f**k you up

Make you think I'm a' kick your ass

But drop your gat and Ren's gonna blast

I'm sneaky as f**k when it comes to crime

But I'm a' smoke 'em now and not next time

Smoke any motherf**ker that sweats me

And any a**hole that threatens me

I'm a sniper with a hell of a scope

Takin' out a cop or two that can't cope with me

The motherf**kin' villain that's mad

With potential to get bad as f**k

So I'm a' turn it around

Put in my clip, yo

And this is the sound

Yeah, Somethin' like that

But it all depends on the size of the gat

Takin' out a police would make my day

But a n***a like Ren don't give a f**k to say...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

 

I'm tired of the motherf**kin' jackin'

sweatin' my gang while I'm chillin' in the shack an'

Shinin' the light in my face and for what?

Maybe it's because I kick so much butt

I kick ass, or maybe it's 'cause I blast

Oh a stupid-assed n***a when I'm playing with the trigger

Of an Uzi or an AK

'Cause the police always got somethin' stupid to say

They put up my picture with silence

'Cause my identity by itself causes violence

The E with the criminal behavior

Yeah, I'm a gangster, but still I got flavor

Without a gun and a badge, what do you got?

A sucker in uniform waitin' to get shot

By me or another n***a

And with a gat, it don't matter if he's smaller or bigger

(Size don't mean s**t, he's from the old school, fool)

And as you all know, E's here to rule

Whenever I'm rollin', keep lookin' in the mirror

And ears on cue, yo, so I can hear a

Dumb motherf**ker with a gun

and if I'm rollin' off the eight, he'll be the one

That I take out and then get away

While I'm driving off laughin', this is what I'll say ...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

@loll@ damn straight CHA! B)

 

probably one of the greatest lyrics to a song IMO is 2pac's NO MORE PAIN:

 

 

My adversaries cry like h*es fully eradicate my foes

My lyrics explode on contact, gamin you h*es

Who else but Mama's only son, f**k the phony n**gaz I'm the one

Say my name, watch b**ches come, now fire

when ready, stay watchin now figure, increase speed

Make you motherf**kers bleed from your mouth quicker

Plus all these n**gaz that you run with, be on some dumb s**t

Trick on the h*es, I ain't the one b**ch

Holla my name and witness game official, it's so sick

Have every single b**ch that came witchu, on my d**k

Plus this alcohol increases the chance to be deceased

I'm movin you stupid b**ches, vicious telekenesis

Am I reachin your brain? N**ga how can I explain?

How vicious this Thug motherf**ker came

When I die, I wanna be a livin legend, say my name

Affiliated with this motherf**kin game, with no more pain

 

 

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

Verse Two: 2Pac

 

Line up my adversaries, blast on sight, and f**k your boyfriend

B**ch, I want some a$$ tonight, you know my steelo

Alize and Cristal, weed sure you heard of all the

sure you've heard of all the freaky s**t they say about me, huh

Plus all you busters is jealous, pull your gun out and blast

I dare you n**gaz to open fire, I'll murder that a$$

And disappear before the cops come runnin, my glock's spittin rounds

n**gaz fallin down clutchin they stomach

It's Westside, Death Row, Thug n**gaz on the rise

Busters shot me five times, real n**gaz don't die

Can ya hear me? Laced with this game, I know you fear me

Spit the secret to war, so cowards fear me

My only fear of death is reincarnation

Heart of a solider with a brain to teach your whole nation

And feelin no more pain

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

Verse Three: 2Pac

 

Bury me that's what they all say, it's time to make a killin

Sure to make a million with DeVante

B**ch I know you want me, what your mouth say? Now, watch your eyes

You don't wanna get with me, that's a lie

I got my hands on your hips, no time to bulls**t

Freaky b**ch, come give me kiss

Tell them n**gaz from other areas, brothers from here

So obsessed with this money makin it ain't nothin we fear

Now they label me a troublemaker, cause I'm a ridah

Death to you playa haters, don't let me find ya

Mama made me rugged, baptised the public

Now you hard thugs, n**ga don't you love it

It's similar to multiple gunshots, retaliation is a must

Wasn't too sure what you facin so watch the guns bust

You n**gaz'll bleed, fuckin with me you'll be deceased

Never restin in peace n**ga, with no more pain......

 

 

 

that song spoke the realest #$## i've ever heard on a song. it was raw and i could feel he actually felt everything he said. the things he said wasn't over exaggerated like alot of artist talk about but at the same time you felt how cocky he really was.

Cha, once again you are the friggin' man. I love N.W.A to death. They weren't afraid to say what was on their minds, even when it got them in trouble.

 

Here are some of my favorite lyrics:

 

"My Philosophy" by Boogie Down Productions

Let's begin, what, where, why, or when

will all be explained like instructions to a game

See I'm not insane, in fact, I'm kind of rational

when I be asking you, "Who is more dramatical?"

This one or that one, the white one or the black one

pick the punk, and I'll jump up to attack one

KRS-One is just the guy to lead a crew

right up to your face and dis you

Everyone saw me on the last album cover

Holding a pistol something far from a lover

Beside my brother, S-C-O-T-T

I just laughed, cause no one can defeat me

This is lecture number two, "My Philosophy"

Number one, was "Poetry" you know it's me

This is my philosophy, many artists got to learn

I'm not flammable, I don't burn

so please stop burnin, and learn to earn respect

'cause that's just what KR collects

see, what do you expect when you rhyme like a soft punk

you walk down the street and get jumped

You got to have style, and learn to be original

and everybody's gonna wanna diss you

like me, we stood up for the South Bronx

and every sucka mc had a response

You think we care? I know that they are on the tip

my posse from the Bronx is thick

and we're real live, we walk correctly

a lot of suckas would like to forget me

but they can't, cause like a champ

I have got a record of knocking out the frauds in a second

on the mic, I believe that you should get loose

I haven't come to tell you I have juice

I just produce, create, innovate on a higher level

I'll be back, but for now just seckle!

 

I'll play the nine and you play the target

you all know my name so I guess I'll just start it

or should I say, "Start this," I am an artist

of new concepts at their hardest

cause, yo, I'm a teacher and Scott is a scholar

It ain't about money cause we all make dollars

That's why I walk with my head up

when I hear wack rhymes I get fed up

Rap is like a set-up, a lot of games

a lot of suckas with colorful names

I'm so-and-so, I'm this, I'm that

huh, but they all just wick-wick-wack

I'm not white or red or black

I'm brown.. from the Boogie Down

Productions, of course our music be thumpin'

others say their bad, but they're buggin

let me tell you somethin' now about hip hop

about D-Nice, Melodie, and Scott La Rock

I'll get a pen, a pencil, a marker

mainly what I write is for the average New Yorker

some mc's be talkin' and talkin'

tryin' to show how black people are walkin

but I don't walk this way to portray

or reinforce stereotypes of today

like all my brothas eat chicken and watermelon

talk broken english and drug sellin'

See I'm tellin, and teaching real facts

The way some act in rap is kind of wack

and it lacks creativity and intelligence

but they don't care cause the company is sellin' it

It's my philosophy, on the industry

Don't bother dissin me, or even wish that we'd

soften, dilute, or commercialize all our lyrics

Cause it's about time one of y'all hear it

And hear it first-hand from the intelligent brown man

A vegetarian, no goat or ham

or chicken or turkey or hamburger

'cause to me that's suicide self-murder

let us get back to what we call hip hop

and what it meant to DJ Scott La Rock...

 

How many mc's must get dissed

before somebody says, "Don't f*** with Kris!"

this is just one style, out of many

Like a piggy bank, this is one penny

My brother's name is Kenny - that's, Kenny Parker

My other brother I.C.U. is much darker

Boogie Down Productions is made up of teachers

the lecture is conducted from the mic into the speaker

Who gets weaker? The king or the teacher

It's not about a salary it's all about reality

Teachers teach and do the world good

kings just rule and most are never understood

If you were to rule or govern a certain industry

All inside this room right now would be in misery

No one would get along nor sing a song

'cause everyone'd be singing for the king, am I wrong?!

So yo, what's up, it's me again

Scott La Rock, KRS, BDP again

many people had the nerve to think we would end the trend

We're criminal minded, an album which is only ten

Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky hit records

no more than four minutes and some seconds

the competition checks and checks and keeps checkin'

they buy the album, take it home, and start sweatin'

why? well it's simple, to them it's kind of vital

to take KRS-One's title

to them I'm like an idol, some type of entity

in everybody's rhyme they wanna mention me?

or rather mention us, me or Scott La Rock

but they can get bust get robbed, get dropped

I don't play around nor do I f*** around

and you can tell by the bodies that are left around

when some clown jumps up to get beat down

broken down to his very last compound

see how it sounds? a little unrational

a lot of mc's like to use the word DRAMATICAL!

Fresh for '88, you suckas..

--KRS-One

 

From "Sucker M.C.s" by Run-D.M.C.

I'm D.M.C. in the place to be

I go to St. John's University

And since kinde-garten I acquired the knowledge

And after 12th grade I went straight to college

I'm light skinned, I live in Queens

And I love eatin chicken and collard greens

I dress to kill, I love the style

I'm an MC you know who's versatile

Say I got good credit in your regards

Got my name not numbers on my credit cards

I go Uptown, I come back home

with who me myself and my microphone

All my rhymes are sweet delight

So here's another one for y'all to bite

When I rhyme, I never quit

And if I got a new rhyme I'll just say it

Cause it takes a lot, to entertain

And sucker MC's can be a pain

You can't rock a party with the hip in hop

You gotta let em know you'll never stop

The rhymes have to make (a lot of sense)

You got to know where to start (when the beats commence..)

--D.M.C.

 

From "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smilin' on you but he's frownin' too

Because only God knows what you'll go through

You'll grow in the ghetto livin' second-rate

And your eyes will sing a song called deep hate

The places you play and where you stay

Looks like one great big alleyway

You'll admire all the number-book takers

Thugs, pimps and pushers and the big money-makers

Drivin' big cars, spendin' twenties and tens

And you'll wanna grow up to be just like them, huh

Smugglers, scramblers, burglars, gamblers

Pickpocket peddlers, even panhandlers

You say I'm cool, huh, I'm no fool

But then you wind up droppin' outta high school

Now you're unemployed, all non-void

Walkin' round like you're Pretty Boy Floyd

Turned stick-up kid, but look what you done did

Got sent up for a eight-year bid

Now your manhood is took and you're a Maytag

Spend the next two years as a undercover #$###

Bein' used and abused to serve like hell

'til one day, you was found hung dead in the cell

It was plain to see that your life was lost

You was cold and your body swung back and forth

But now your eyes sing the sad, sad song

Of how you lived so fast and died so young

--Melle Mel

 

That's it for now, I'll think of more later.

yes! yes! yes! this song is probably the greates "hip hop" song ever written. he hit so many points on this song...music, racism, violence etc all on one track . as a matter of fact i'm gonna go jam that song right now! @lol@

 

man, PMP you get major props from me for that choice! @wink@

In 1814 we took a little trip

Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississipp'

We took a little bacon and we took a little beans

And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans

 

We fired our guns and the British kept a coming

There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago

We fired once more and they began to running

Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

 

We looked down the river and we seen the British come

And there must have been a hundred of them beating on the drums

They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring

We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a thing

 

Old Hickory said we could take 'em by suprise

If we didn't fire a musket 'til we looked 'em in the eyes

We held our fire 'til we seen their faces well

We opened up our squirrel guns and really gave 'em

 

Well they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles

And they ran through the bushes where the rabbits couldn't go

They ran so fast the hounds couldn't catch 'em

On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

 

We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down

Then we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round

We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind

And when we touched the powder off the gator lost his mind

 

 

 

@smilepunch@

 

 

 

 

Now all I need is a rock band consisting of all cops, to make a song about killin' rappers and criminals and the combination of the two, and I'll be a happy camper!

 

Rules are meant to be broken....and punishment is meant for those that break them!

 

Don't blame society for your life of crime and don't cry about the cops when they tag your ass to do the time!

will all be explained like instructions to a game

See I'm not insane, in fact, I'm kind of rational

when I be asking you, "Who is more dramatical?"

This one or that one, the white one or the black one

pick the punk, and I'll jump up to attack one

KRS-One is just the guy to lead a crew

right up to your face and dis you

Everyone saw me on the last album cover

Holding a pistol something far from a lover

Beside my brother, S-C-O-T-T

I just laughed, cause no one can defeat me

This is lecture number two, "My Philosophy"

Number one, was "Poetry" you know it's me

This is my philosophy, many artists got to learn

I'm not flammable, I don't burn

so please stop burnin, and learn to earn respect

'cause that's just what KR collects

see, what do you expect when you rhyme like a soft punk

you walk down the street and get jumped

You got to have style, and learn to be original

and everybody's gonna wanna diss you

like me, we stood up for the South Bronx

and every sucka mc had a response

You think we care? I know that they are on the tip

my posse from the Bronx is thick

and we're real live, we walk correctly

a lot of suckas would like to forget me

but they can't, cause like a champ

I have got a record of knocking out the frauds in a second

on the mic, I believe that you should get loose

I haven't come to tell you I have juice

I just produce, create, innovate on a higher level

I'll be back, but for now just seckle!

 

I'll play the nine and you play the target

you all know my name so I guess I'll just start it

or should I say, "Start this," I am an artist

of new concepts at their hardest

cause, yo, I'm a teacher and Scott is a scholar

It ain't about money cause we all make dollars

That's why  I walk with my head up

when I hear wack rhymes I get fed up

Rap is like a set-up, a lot of games

a lot of suckas with colorful names

I'm so-and-so, I'm this, I'm that

huh, but they all just wick-wick-wack

I'm not white or red or black

I'm brown.. from the Boogie Down

Productions, of course our music be thumpin'

others say their bad, but they're buggin

let me tell you somethin' now about hip hop

about D-Nice, Melodie, and Scott La Rock

I'll get a pen, a pencil, a marker

mainly what I write is for the average New Yorker

some mc's be talkin' and talkin'

tryin' to show how black people are walkin

but I don't walk this way to portray

or reinforce stereotypes of today

like all my brothas eat chicken and watermelon

talk broken english and drug sellin'

See I'm tellin, and teaching real facts

The way some act in rap is kind of wack

and it lacks creativity and intelligence

but they don't care cause the company is sellin' it

It's my philosophy, on the industry

Don't bother dissin me, or even wish that we'd

soften, dilute, or commercialize all our lyrics

Cause it's about time one of y'all hear it

And hear it first-hand from the intelligent brown man

A vegetarian, no goat or ham

or chicken or turkey or hamburger

'cause to me that's suicide self-murder

let us get back to what we call hip hop

and what it meant to DJ Scott La Rock...

 

How many mc's must get dissed

before somebody says, "Don't f*** with Kris!"

this is just one style, out of many

Like a piggy bank, this is one penny

My brother's name is Kenny - that's, Kenny Parker

My other brother I.C.U. is much darker

Boogie Down Productions is made up of teachers

the lecture is conducted from the mic into the speaker

Who gets weaker? The king or the teacher

It's not about a salary it's all about reality

Teachers teach and do the world good

kings just rule and most are never understood

If you were to rule or govern a certain industry

All inside this room right now would be in misery

No one would get along  nor sing a song

'cause everyone'd be singing for the king, am I wrong?!

So yo, what's up, it's me again

Scott La Rock, KRS, BDP again

many people had the nerve to think we would end the trend

We're criminal minded, an album which is only ten

Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky hit records

no more than four minutes and some seconds

the competition checks and checks and keeps checkin'

they buy the album, take it home, and start sweatin'

why? well it's simple, to them it's kind of vital

to take KRS-One's title

to them I'm like an idol, some type of entity

in everybody's rhyme they wanna mention me?

or rather mention us, me or Scott La Rock

but they can get bust get robbed, get dropped

I don't play around nor do I f*** around

and you can tell by the bodies that are left around

when some clown jumps up to get beat down

broken down to his very last compound

see how it sounds?  a little unrational

a lot of mc's like to use the word DRAMATICAL!

Fresh for '88, you suckas..

--KRS-One

 

From "Sucker M.C.s" by Run-D.M.C.

I'm D.M.C. in the place to be

I go to St. John's University

And since kinde-garten I acquired the knowledge

And after 12th grade I went straight to college

I'm light skinned, I live in Queens

And I love eatin chicken and collard greens

I dress to kill, I love the style

I'm an MC you know who's versatile

Say I got good credit in your regards

Got my name not numbers on my credit cards

I go Uptown, I come back home

with who me myself and my microphone

All my rhymes are sweet delight

So here's another one for y'all to bite

When I rhyme, I never quit

And if I got a new rhyme I'll just say it

Cause it takes a lot, to entertain

And sucker MC's can be a pain

You can't rock a party with the hip in hop

You gotta let em know you'll never stop

The rhymes have to make (a lot of sense)

You got to know where to start (when the beats commence..)

--D.M.C.

 

From "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

A child is born with no state of mind

Blind to the ways of mankind

God is smilin' on you but he's frownin' too

Because only God knows what you'll go through

You'll grow in the ghetto livin' second-rate

And your eyes will sing a song called deep hate

The places you play and where you stay

Looks like one great big alleyway

You'll admire all the number-book takers

Thugs, pimps and pushers and the big money-makers

Drivin' big cars, spendin' twenties and tens

And you'll wanna grow up to be just like them, huh

Smugglers, scramblers, burglars, gamblers

Pickpocket peddlers, even panhandlers

You say I'm cool, huh, I'm no fool

But then you wind up droppin' outta high school

Now you're unemployed, all non-void

Walkin' round like you're Pretty Boy Floyd

Turned stick-up kid, but look what you done did

Got sent up for a eight-year bid

Now your manhood is took and you're a Maytag

Spend the next two years as a undercover #$###

Bein' used and abused to serve like hell

'til one day, you was found hung dead in the cell

It was plain to see that your life was lost

You was cold and your body swung back and forth

But now your eyes sing the sad, sad song

Of how you lived so fast and died so young

--Melle Mel

 

That's it for now, I'll think of more later.

yes! yes! yes! this song is probably the greates "hip hop" song ever written. he hit so many points on this song...music, racism, violence etc all on one track . as a matter of fact i'm gonna go jam that song right now! @lol@

 

man, PMP you get major props from me for that choice! @wink@

I'm guessing you were talking about the BDP track?

 

If you were, then yeah, I love that song too. It's definitely in my Top 20 greatest hip-hop songs. Actually, to be honest, I love a lot of KRS's work. I have the first three BDP albums and his first "solo" album, and I love all of them. I like a lot of his other albums, but I don't own any except those four. I mean, I'm not Bill Gates. I don't have the kind of money to own a full KRS-One collection. @loll@

 

Anyway, talking "My Philosophy" has trapped the beat in my head, and I have to listen to it now. I'll post more lyrics in this thread over time.

One of the best all time rap songs.

 

F**k tha Police by the almighty NWA

 

F**k the police commin' straight from the underground

A young n***a got it bad 'cause I'm brown

And not the other color

Some police think

They have the authority to kill a minority

F**k that s**t'cause I ain't the one

For a punk motherf**ker with a badge and a gun

To be beaten on and thrown in jail

We can go toe to toe in the middle of a cell

F**kin' with me 'cause I'm a teenager

With a little bit of gold and a pager

Searchin' my car, lookin' for the product

Thinkin' every n***a is sellin' narcotics

You'd rather see me in the pen

Than me and Lorenzo rollin' in a Benz-o

Beat up police, out of shape

And when I'm finished, Bring the yellow tape

To tape off the scene of the slaughter

Still gettin' Swoll' off bread and water

I don't know if they f*gs or what

Search a n***a down and grabbin' his nuts

And on the other hand

Without a gun, they can't get none

But don't let it be a black and a white one

'Cause they'll slam ya down to the street top

Black police showin' out for the white cop

Ice Cube will Swarm

On any motherf**ker in a blue uniform

Just 'cause I'm from the CPT

Punk police are afraid of me, huh

A young n***a on the warpath

And when I finish, it's gonna be a bloodbath

Of cops dyin' in L.A.

Yo, Dre, I got something to say ...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

 

 

F**k the police and Ren said it with authority

Because the n***as on the street is a majority

A gang - that's wit whoever i'm steppin'

And a motherf**kin' weapon is kept in

A stand-by for the so called law

Wishin' Ren was a n***a that they never saw

Lights all flashin' behind me

But they're scared of a n***a so they mace to blind me

But that s**t don't work, I just laugh

Because it gives 'em a hint not to step in my path

To police, I'm sayin', "F**k you punk!"

Readin' my rights and s**t - it's all junk

Pullin' out a silly club so you stand

With a fake-assed badge and a gun in your hand

But take off the gun so you can see what's up

And we'll go at it, punk, and I'm a' f**k you up

Make you think I'm a' kick your ass

But drop your gat and Ren's gonna blast

I'm sneaky as f**k when it comes to crime

But I'm a' smoke 'em now and not next time

Smoke any motherf**ker that sweats me

And any a**hole that threatens me

I'm a sniper with a hell of a scope

Takin' out a cop or two that can't cope with me

The motherf**kin' villain that's mad

With potential to get bad as f**k

So I'm a' turn it around

Put in my clip, yo

And this is the sound

Yeah, Somethin' like that

But it all depends on the size of the gat

Takin' out a police would make my day

But a n***a like Ren don't give a f**k to say...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

 

I'm tired of the motherf**kin' jackin'

sweatin' my gang while I'm chillin' in the shack an'

Shinin' the light in my face and for what?

Maybe it's because I kick so much butt

I kick ass, or maybe it's 'cause I blast

Oh a stupid-assed n***a when I'm playing with the trigger

Of an Uzi or an AK

'Cause the police always got somethin' stupid to say

They put up my picture with silence

'Cause my identity by itself causes violence

The E with the criminal behavior

Yeah, I'm a gangster, but still I got flavor

Without a gun and a badge, what do you got?

A sucker in uniform waitin' to get shot

By me or another n***a

And with a gat, it don't matter if he's smaller or bigger

(Size don't mean s**t, he's from the old school, fool)

And as you all know, E's here to rule

Whenever I'm rollin', keep lookin' in the mirror

And ears on cue, yo, so I can hear a

Dumb motherf**ker with a gun

and if I'm rollin' off the eight, he'll be the one

That I take out and then get away

While I'm driving off laughin', this is what I'll say ...

 

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

F**k the Police

@loll@ damn straight CHA! B)

 

probably one of the greatest lyrics to a song IMO is 2pac's NO MORE PAIN:

 

 

My adversaries cry like h*es fully eradicate my foes

My lyrics explode on contact, gamin you h*es

Who else but Mama's only son, f**k the phony n**gaz I'm the one

Say my name, watch b**ches come, now fire

when ready, stay watchin now figure, increase speed

Make you motherf**kers bleed from your mouth quicker

Plus all these n**gaz that you run with, be on some dumb s**t

Trick on the h*es, I ain't the one b**ch

Holla my name and witness game official, it's so sick

Have every single b**ch that came witchu, on my d**k

Plus this alcohol increases the chance to be deceased

I'm movin you stupid b**ches, vicious telekenesis

Am I reachin your brain? N**ga how can I explain?

How vicious this Thug motherf**ker came

When I die, I wanna be a livin legend, say my name

Affiliated with this motherf**kin game, with no more pain

 

 

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

Verse Two: 2Pac

 

Line up my adversaries, blast on sight, and f**k your boyfriend

B**ch, I want some a$$ tonight, you know my steelo

Alize and Cristal, weed sure you heard of all the

sure you've heard of all the freaky s**t they say about me, huh

Plus all you busters is jealous, pull your gun out and blast

I dare you n**gaz to open fire, I'll murder that a$$

And disappear before the cops come runnin, my glock's spittin rounds

n**gaz fallin down clutchin they stomach

It's Westside, Death Row, Thug n**gaz on the rise

Busters shot me five times, real n**gaz don't die

Can ya hear me? Laced with this game, I know you fear me

Spit the secret to war, so cowards fear me

My only fear of death is reincarnation

Heart of a solider with a brain to teach your whole nation

And feelin no more pain

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

I came to bring the pain, hardcore to the brain

Let's go inside my astral plane

 

Verse Three: 2Pac

 

Bury me that's what they all say, it's time to make a killin

Sure to make a million with DeVante

B**ch I know you want me, what your mouth say? Now, watch your eyes

You don't wanna get with me, that's a lie

I got my hands on your hips, no time to bulls**t

Freaky b**ch, come give me kiss

Tell them n**gaz from other areas, brothers from here

So obsessed with this money makin it ain't nothin we fear

Now they label me a troublemaker, cause I'm a ridah

Death to you playa haters, don't let me find ya

Mama made me rugged, baptised the public

Now you hard thugs, n**ga don't you love it

It's similar to multiple gunshots, retaliation is a must

Wasn't too sure what you facin so watch the guns bust

You n**gaz'll bleed, fuckin with me you'll be deceased

Never restin in peace n**ga, with no more pain......

 

 

 

that song spoke the realest #$## i've ever heard on a song. it was raw and i could feel he actually felt everything he said. the things he said wasn't over exaggerated like alot of artist talk about but at the same time you felt how cocky he really was.

I have All Eyez On Me, and it's a little overrated. I mean, it's hard to make a really good double album, so I don't fault Pac for it. I do admit that his lyrics are very deep and thought-provoking, but I think he's overrated as an emcee. Not being disrespectful, just being honest in my opinion. But Me Against The World is definitely a classic, no doubt about it.

 

By the way Chazz, I hope you don't think I'm trying to stomp on Pac or your opinion of him. I don't know if it came off that way, but I don't want you to be pissed off at me.

 

Now all I need is a rock band consisting of all cops, to make a song about killin' rappers and criminals and the combination of the two, and I'll be a happy camper!

 

Rules are meant to be broken....and punishment is meant for those that break them!

 

Don't blame society for your life of crime and don't cry about the cops when they tag your ass to do the time!

 

Well, most songs about killing cops were written due to police brutality in L.A. I don't see why it's wrong to write a song about how much you hate the police when they beat and kill people everyday due to skin color. And I'm not just some ignorant whiteboy trying to appeal to black people by saying this #$##. Police brutality/corruption is very real, and you know it.

 

If you read the lyrics to "#$### tha Police" instead of just reading the title and pre-judging it, you'd understand what N.W.A were trying to get across. This song is a political message about the corruption of the police force, not just some ignorant rant.

 

And if McFly is anywhere near this thread, then I guess I'll give you the history lesson thing this time. I'm just trying to explain the song. @loll@

For the same reason that anybody gets pissed off about stereotypical assertions.

 

How many cops are killed everyday by Blacks that are in gangs and on drugs and only hate the cops because they stand in their way of getting what they want, which is mostly illegal?

 

Should there be a stereotypical song, full of hate and bigotry produced, because of this "everyday" occurence against cops, or do you think Blacks would make a big stink about it, and object to it's content and implications?

 

And I'm not just some ignorant whiteboy trying to appeal to black people by saying this #$##. Police brutality/corruption is very real, and you know it.

 

Actually, I tend to think you are! @lol@ Not so much "ignorant" in an insulting sense, but more naive and impressionable, but impressed by the wrong things.

 

Violence is violence and crime is crime and yes it's ALL real, but most criminal types tend to think they're innocent or "victims of society" anyway, and will lie and cheat just to get out of taking responsibilty for their actions by whatever means they can, and living in denial is just ONE way, accusing law enforcement of "brutality" or racism is just another.

 

If you read the lyrics to "#$### tha Police" instead of just reading the title and pre-judging it, you'd understand what N.W.A were trying to get across. This song is a political message about the corruption of the police force, not just some ignorant rant.

 

The whole thing was posted for us to read the lyrics (which I did) which is why I was disgusted. It's offensive and racist and full of ignorant bigotry. It states to F@#K the police and KILL the POLICE! I took that as the police in their entirety, not the individuals who are guilty of shameful tactics as police officers.

 

When a Black person commits a murder of a White person, should we judge ALL blacks as killers and write songs about how we hate them and should kill them all?

 

Let's be fair in all of this and put aside the idolizing of people who would breed such hateful feelings towards people that in the WHOLE are here to protect us. If unfortuantely, your life places you in a situation that involves criminal activity going on as a norm, don't fault the cops who have to deal with the threat of violence everyday in keeping the peace, and might have to judge you as suspicious, if you're hanging out with a gang outside the liquor store, whether you're up to no good or not.

 

I have many friends in law enforcement and I hear all the horror stories of what goes on out their in a world I pretty much have no clue about, and glad of it.

I never said I hated all cops, I just said you have to understand where they were coming from when they wrote that song. The lyrics mention the fact that the corrupt cops in L.A. go after black youth because they have "a little gold and a pager" or "thinkin' every n***a is sellin' narcotics". I don't see what's bad about wanting to kill those who hurt you.

 

And I'm tired of you using my age as an excuse to basically tell me that I'm "too young and impressionable to understand". I'm 16, VH, not 6. Believe it or not, I am living in the real world and I have changed a lot over the past few years that I've been talking to you. I don't idolize N.W.A, although I do enjoy their music. I'm not gonna go out and shoot Boston cops because of things that many L.A. cops do. You got what I was saying all wrong. I'm not impressed by violence at all. If there was no such thing as police brutality on a large-scale level and someone still made a song called "#$### tha Police", I'd be disgusted too. I just don't think you should be so disgusted by a song written by guys who probably dealt with police brutalization everyday.

 

It's hard for me to explain my point, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to get across. I also think you misunderstood my post.

I'm trying to make you understand where the life of a cop is "coming from". I have no sympathy for gang bangin' rapper punks, who do drugs and run the streets, and then get upset when they're harrassed by the cops, because EVEN THOUGH they were guilty of some selective CRIME yesterday...TODAY they were just walking down the sidewalk minding their own business, and shouldn't be under suspicion of the local law enforcement! :rolleyes: wah..freaking wah!

 

I'm scared of you thinking it's okay to kill cops who have to keep an eye on gang members and even harass them a little bit, in order to keep the FEAR in'em, that they're being watched. Goes with the territory of living such a life in the world of gangs.

 

Rodney King was hardly a local successful businessman driving home to his nice home in the suburbs and because of his skin color, suspected as being a criminal "scoping the nice neighborhood" and then harassed without cause, by the police, and then chased and beaten unecessarily.

 

And I'm tired of you using my age as an excuse to basically tell me that I'm "too young and impressionable to understand". I'm 16, VH, not 6.

 

Whoa there Nellie! Didn't even mention your age at all, or youth thereof! Just stated I thought you were maybe a little naive and impressionable. Afterall, you're a lilly whiteboy, idolizing ALL that's Black. @lol@

 

 

Believe it or not, I am living in the real world

 

 

Yeah, but have you been harrassed by the police for being Black? @smilepunch@ jeeest kiddin'!

 

 

You got what I was saying all wrong. I'm not impressed by violence at all. If there was no such thing as police brutality on a large-scale level and someone still made a song called "#$### tha Police", I'd be disgusted too. I just don't think you should be so disgusted by a song written by guys who probably dealt with police brutalization everyday.

 

That's where you're being naive!

 

The police don't just randomly pull people aside for what ever reason, to brutalize them. Most punks that get their asses kicked by the police DESERVE it, for any number of reasons, and because the legal system is so screwed up and bogus anymore, these cops are sick and tired of the same damn punks getting back out on the streets to HURT other INNOCENT people, and then the cops have keep dealing with the same idiots. No punk or criminal is going to say they deserved to be arrested because they were doing WRONG, and when they fight and resist arrest and get their butts kicked a little, they cry "POLICE BRUTALITY!"

 

It's hard for me to explain my point, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to get across. I also think you misunderstood my post.

 

Oh I understand okay PMP! ;) We've had these roundabout discussions and disagreements before, and it's all in the interest of heartfelt debate. Nothing personal.

 

I just hate the whole "kill the cops" crap! I defend law and ORDER just as much as I defend our military against terrorists, and we all know how much sympathy can go around for terrorists also? ^_^

Actually, I tend to think you are! @lol@ Not so much "ignorant" in an insulting sense, but more naive and impressionable, but impressed by the wrong things.

 

Violence is violence and crime is crime and yes it's ALL real, but most criminal types tend to think they're innocent or "victims of society" anyway, and will lie and cheat just to get out of taking responsibilty for their actions by whatever means they can, and living in denial is just ONE way, accusing law enforcement of "brutality" or racism is just another.

 

If you read the lyrics to "#$### tha Police" instead of just reading the title and pre-judging it, you'd understand what N.W.A were trying to get across. This song is a political message about the corruption of the police force, not just some ignorant rant.

 

The whole thing was posted for us to read the lyrics (which I did) which is why I was disgusted. It's offensive and racist and full of ignorant bigotry. It states to F@#K the police and KILL the POLICE! I took that as the police in their entirety, not the individuals who are guilty of shameful tactics as police officers.

 

When a Black person commits a murder of a White person, should we judge ALL blacks as killers and write songs about how we hate them and should kill them all?

 

Let's be fair in all of this and put aside the idolizing of people who would breed such hateful feelings towards people that in the WHOLE are here to protect us. If unfortuantely, your life places you in a situation that involves criminal activity going on as a norm, don't fault the cops who have to deal with the threat of violence everyday in keeping the peace, and might have to judge you as suspicious, if you're hanging out with a gang outside the liquor store, whether you're up to no good or not.

 

I have many friends in law enforcement and I hear all the horror stories of what goes on out their in a world I pretty much have no clue about, and glad of it.

why are you making this a white and black thing VH? @hmmm@ you know i respect you and all but damn man, it seems like you are always trying to push a point about reverse racism when it's not even there.

 

if you read the lyrics like you said you did you would see the line were he talks about crocked black cops as well, so how could the song be considered racist. the song isn't saying go out and kill every cop you see, it's clearly talking about cops who abuse there "power" and take advantage of there authority. NWA as a group never killed anybody, dre and ice cube never sold any drugs or even broke a law in there life when this song came out but yet knew about police brutality and harassment. that's the point the point they were trying to stress in the song, that they are normal people in urban areas, black AND white that are harassed by the police regularly. i'm sorry VH, police brutality and harassment do exist. i've witnessed it first hand...i've been harassed and humilated by cops for no reason at all and saying f$%k the police is nothing compared to what i wanted to do when i 16 and was left stranded 30 miles away from civilization because i "fit the description"

 

to call this song racist and then back door and say it's just black people that are mad because they got caught breaking the law...well isn't that the pot calling the kettle black @wink@ by no means do i think you are racist VH, but damn dawg, you need to chill with always trying to prove your reverse racism arguments when it's not even an issue.

Because once you cut thru all the BULL...that's all it ever is! Blacks thinking someone is out to get them or "DIS" them, and when it comes to the police, they think it's due to the color of their skin.

 

 

@hmmm@ you know i respect you and all but damn man, it seems like you are always trying to push a point about reverse racism when it's not even there.

 

I feel the same way, when I hear the constant whines from people about...FORWARD racism, when I know the situation and can see it isn't there. Sometimes you have to show them how ridiculous most of it is to get them to see it, but it usually never works.

 

if you read the lyrics like you said you did you would see the line were he talks about crocked black cops as well, so how could the song be considered racist.

 

They ask if their...."F@GS"?

It's a lousy song! These people that call for the killing of cops because they beat up Rodney King, are just using King as a tool in which to leverage themselves a little more AGAINST authority in general, and could care less about King themselves, in fact, they likely would have popped a cap in his ass themselves, for invading their turf or something, but man o man, he gets what was comin' to him for being a drugged up jerk, and they tear up their own neighborhoods and take out their OWN racist aggravations against Koreans and have a lotting, shooting, brick throwin' RIOT!

 

There are bad parents, teachers, bosses and YES cops! Anybody that has authority over us, can get the label slapped on them, that would suggest they're abusive to us, and have alterior motives for it, because in our minds, we're PERFECT children, students, employees and citizens, and if you're of a minority, and the last three are White, you can tag on the accusation of racism.

I'm just disturbed about the fact that such a songs lyrics would be considered the "BEST of all time, and that such juvenile tendencies like wanting to say "F@#K THE POLICE" or wish for their being killed, would turn up here at this forum.

 

The police have pretty shitty jobs for the most part, and although I've had some run-ins with them myself, in my bar-hopping, bar room brawlin', drunk driving and speeding days, I don't hold such contempt for them and as a mature adult, I can see they were doing their jobs, when they had to deal with me. At the time, I was probably thinking what this songs implies as well, only instead of blaming it on my skin color, it was just my youth and age that I just knew was the ONLY reason they were giving me a hard time. :rolleyes:

 

I'm just old I guess, and far past the point of blaming authority figures in my life, for all the bad things that happen to me. I know of some cops that are assholes as well, and have "abused" their power to harrass someone, but I didn't go out and write a song about it, damning the police as a whole. A song like this has probably caused some impressionable youths to TAKE ON the cops, and either led to their own deaths or even to the death of a cop, who was likely just doing his job.

 

People shouldn't admire this kind of crap!

Actually, just to clarify, this song was written and recorded about half a decade before the Rodney King beating.

 

I don't think a lot of what I'm trying to say is getting through to you, VH. I don't idolize "all that is black", or however you put it. Yes, I like hip-hop music, but not all rap artists are black and not all of them have violent subject matter. In fact, the majority of actually talented rappers out there aren't very violent at all!

 

The fact is, these guys wrote a song about personal experiences they dealt with in the past. They weren't making up all this #$## about police brutality just to get a response. They were fed up with the way they and other blacks were treated by the cops in everyday life. And to clarify, I don't walk around with a bright red shirt on screaming, "#$### tha Police!" daily. I just like the song and I think it does have a very strong message about how a lot of L.A. cops were acting in the late 80's and early 90's. I don't condone hurting anyone unless they have hurt you or someone you love. This song is essentially about fighting back against those who hurt you, in this case the LAPD.

 

But like you said, it's nothing personal and I don't want to start a war with you. I respect you and I know you're very politically charged anyway. Besides, I'd rather be with you than against you! @loll@

dano dano....first off this song came out 5 years before the rodney king beating...NWA just didn't jump on the "police brutality bandwagon" you think that rodney king was the first black man to be beaten like that by a cops?? @lol@ sorry VH, it was going on waaaaay before then and people were feed up and tired of it. your only argument is that even yourself have had run ins with the police and deserved...but you have never had any run ins when you were sober, walking down the street and minding your own business, taking your kids to school, or being in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time? obviously you hadn't or you wouldn't be so quick to jump and say that black people are just mad because they are getting caught.

 

this why thins song is so important ...for one it lets people like you that are misinformed and don't have any idea that this is going on, and something needs to be done before it gets even more out of hand. also it lets those crooked cops know that they are young guys who will fight back if harassed or beaten. that aren't scared of them because they were a badge. maybe it'll make them think twice about harassing and beating somebody just for the hell of it.

 

like i've said before, i've been harassed and humilated by cops...i've been asked to lay down on a dirt road while they through all my stuff out my car and then been made to put it all back in myself while they watched, been thrown against a police car and my legs kicked so far apart i was almost doing the splits, being forced to take off my shirt at a busy intersection while he read my tattoos and asked "what's my nick name?" and when i answered i don't have one he says "yea you do, you ALL do", thrown up against the wall and when i asked "what's going on'" told to shut the f**k up before he kicked my teeth down my throat ...i mean damn, don't i have the right as an american citizen to ask why i'm being searched? @hmmm@ there have been others but the more i type this the more pissed off i get.

 

all things happened when i wasn't doing absolutely nothing at all...clean and sober, sometimes in broad daylight. as much as you hate to face it VH they are cops that mess with people just for the hell of it.

Okay..okay..I GIVE!!!

 

 

 

@lol@

 

 

 

You guys have made some good and personal points on the matter, and done so without getting into it with me personally, and kept it civil amongst old friends, and that's how I want it to stay.

 

I've got mutual respect for all of ya as well, so I'll leave it at that. :)

 

Both sides of the parties in discussion (rappers & cops) have been defended, so I'll let the topic get back on track to "Greatest lyrics ever"! ;)
