Temperature's Rising  (LP Version)

Temperature's Rising (LP Version)

Mobb Deep

Yeah
Uhh no doubt son word up

Word up son I heard they got you on the run
Filled with body now it's time to stash the guns
They probably got the phone tap so I won't speak long
Gimme a half second and I'ma put you on

It's all messed up somebody's snitchin on the crew
And word is on the street is they got pictures of you
Homicide came to the crib last night six deep
Axin on your whereabouts, so where d'you sleep?

They said they just want to question you bet me and you know
That once they catch you, all they do is just arrest you
Then arraign you, hang you, I don't think so
It's a good thing you bounced but now you're stayin low

Once in a blue I check ta see how ya doin
I know you need loot so I send it through Western Union
They probably knock down the door
In the middle of the night, sometimes around four

Hopin to find who they're lookin for but they want ta see
All they gonna find is mad empty bags of weed
But worse, son, you got the projects hotter than hell
Harder for brothers to get their thug on but oh well

Son, they know too much, even the hoodrat chicks
Oh, you heard who did what and why I don't this shit
So stop askin, then I know I'm not goin crazy
From windows I see lights flashin and maybe

Somebody's takin pictures
You know who that be, police lovers and neighbourhood snitches
They put up *?pertice?* so everybody's pointin fingers
And lyin, aiyo son, the temp is risin

[Chorus]
The temperature's risin, no there's nothin surprisin
The temperature's risin, huh and nothin's surprisin
The temperature's risin, huh and there's nothin surprisin
The temperature's risin (There's nothin surprisin)

What up, black? Hold your head wherever you at
On the flow from the cops or wings on your backs
That snitch nigga gave police your location
We'll chop his body up in six degrees of separation

Killer listen, shit ain't the same without you at home
Phony niggas walk around tryin to be your clone
They really fear you, when you was at home you was pale
That's why they want to see you either dead or in jail

By the time you hear this rhyme you probably be locked up
Tried to hussle, where along the lines your plan slipped up
Got caught up in a crime that you can't take back
Reminisce on how I use to pick you up in the Ac

Years ago when we was younger seemed the hood took us under very deep
Wonderin' who snitched and got me losin lots of sleep
At night, you know my mouth is tight
I never sang to the cops 'cause that shit ain't right

Sometimes I stroll past the scene of the crime and backtrack
Damn, why the situation go down like dat?
It'll be a long time before the heat dies down
In a couple of years, fool we'll see you around

But til then maintain and keep ya story the same
The cops is grabbin wrong niggas, lookin for someone to blame
They harrassin, strugglin to find the truth
Is it a chance ya case'll get thrown out 'cause they ain't got no proof

To say you're guilty, your fingerprints filthy
Deliver me the gun, I'll tie two, quickly throw it in the river
Make sure it's safe to the bottom
Our smart police snuck you out at the projects, we got em

But still, but still, but still

[Chorus: x3]

[Repeat: x2]
Surprisin'
