If Rap Gets Jealous

If Rap Gets Jealous

K'NAAN

So good things come to those who wait
Sure, I've waited about pop, pop, pop, pop
That's four cousins shot

I got grudges, let's discuss this, my music needs no touch ups
I got a long record of fuck ups, trust me you don't know who has this
Weight as mine, or a life as hard as mine
I had to hustle, chop, sell drugs, grind
Whatever you want to call it is fine

But just listen and don't preach us
I don't want anyone dismissin' me
As another thug or some shit like that
No, sir, if I fall I will get right back

I got circumstances but let me stop dancin' around the issue
And tell you straight forward, I'm poor
A refugee, been in prison and survived the war
I come from the most dangerous city in this universe
You're likely to get shot at birth

So I can rap quench my thirst
I don't even hear verses no more
I hear jerkin' off, punks with lip glosses and purses
I don't see nobody I can reach anymore
I see nurses, fuck that, I'm gonna stay alive, I'd rather do a stage live

[Chorus]
And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if m'aa fuckers don't get it
Yo, if rap gets jealous, words that were admitted
I used to be a public enemy, don't forget it
And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if m'aa fuckers don't get it
Yo, if rap gets jealous 'cause of where I'm headed
Aggression, obsession, we're pain in the gain

So, yeah, basically I gotta release occasionally
I gotta let you know what's goin' on with me
And facing me are some tough choices
I got a good side and a bad side

Inside my head, I hear screams and loud voices
And I can't lie, ain't got shit
I ain't got to brag, I'm hard pressed for some cash
'Cause that's where I'm at with that, you're so superficial

Of course it's for shizzle, now my choice is to pass on you
Voice, 'cause my mission is the world
To know my name, my aim is plainly success
But I still gotta come practice

So I can rap quench my thirst
I don't even hear verses no more
I hear jerkin' off punks with lip glosses and purses
I don't see nobody I can reach anymore
I see nurses, fuck that, I'm gonna stay alive, I'd rather do a stage live

[Chorus: x3]

And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if m'aa fuckers don't get it
Yo, if rap gets jealous 'cause of where I'm headed
Aggression, obsession, we're pain in the gain
