Let Knowledge Drop

Let Knowledge Drop

Tupac Shakur

Let knowledge drop

Why should I be forced to play dumb?
I know where I came from, so I'm goin' to claim some
But rockin' to the top where the cream of the crop
Suckers callin' the cops but they can come and get dropped

Stop, think of the past the brothers that die for
Sucker to try for never to cry more
Tricks to hold his back but we'll see at the end
He's a fake not a friend
So he's thinkin' of when

He can back stab grab or go your hole
Now I know the reason we must excel
Cause if we don't we'll end up in the cell
Now I know the reason we must excel
'Cause if we don't, we'll end up in the cell

Move on be strong with unity
'Cause that's the only way to build communities
Lies are told but yo, lives must move on
And never stop open your mind
To this rhyme and let it drop

Drop that, drop that, drop that
Let knowledge drop
(Drop that, drop that, drop that)
Let knowledge drop

Yo, I'm runnin' so I refuse to stop
Get sweated by them sell out cops
And I wink 'cause I pin the opposition
I'm on a mission to preach and teach to reach

So listen up to the flavor I gave you, now droppin' it
We folks know ballers know no stoppin' it
Droppin' knowledge like the ay bomb, dilly as napalm
I got you scared all you got to do is stay calm

For the simple fact that I'm black and educated
Proud of who am I and you hated
So all I have tried for this many have die for this
You see it and you hear it and you lovin' it

Now you buyin' this always keep your head
Look to the mountain top
Aiyyo rock and let knowledge drop
(Drop that, drop that)

(Drop that, drop that)
Let knowledge drop
(Drop that, drop that, drop that)
Let knowledge drop

Suckers suffocate when I hype this
Because you can write this
You constantly bite this
Thought that you could get me
But you sweatin' me too close
Caught with the dope dose

Now suckers get toast wonderin' who you tossed
'Cause you feelin' the full force
Like what you hearin' so your checkin' with the source
Tupac brother with the rhymes to rock on
Dizzy gets busy by puttin' beats to drop on

Amateurs get damaged if you try to attack me
Suckers get jealous 'cause the girls get at me
I'm not conceited, but defeated I won't be
As long as there's dope beats, I'll never be lonely stop
And let me breathe a minute
Aiyyo Dizzy what's up put the bass back in it

Let knowledge drop
Let knowledge drop

By any means necessary, it's kind of scary
Knowledge of the hands of adversaries
Makes them the larger leader kind of guerrilla control
I was waitin' for a prayer God gave me a goal

I refuse to be bustin', chokin', like a sucker
For I'm fightin' like a Titan
And run you down like a truck
I'll take a chance I go as far as rock can see
Not mediocrity thinkin' security you got deal with me

Knowledge appealed to me
Pay back's a mutha if you steal from me
The bass pumps as the speakers pop the house jump
And knowledge drops

(Drop, drop, drop)
Let knowledge drop
(Drop, drop, drop)
Let knowledge drop
(Drop, drop, drop)
Let knowledge drop
(Drop, drop, drop)

Strictly, strictly yeah, dope
Strictly, strictly yeah, dope
Strictly, strictly yeah, dope
...
