Get Busy (Album Version (Edited))

The Roots

Look my squad's half mandrill half Mandela
My band bout seventy strong just like fela
Yeah part melly mel part van halen
And we represent illadel where they still rebellin
A yo sicko show like mike moore?s
My city ain't nothing like your?s
Slippin into darkness like WAR, nightcrawl
With the lights off, you see a lot of life loss for the white horse
Regardless, the charges makin us all targets
All on the red carpet, guns from the black market
Ay who got the polititians in they back pocket ?
Pimp slap pump that gimmie that profit
When you make contact gimmie that gossip
If you break contract you'll be that hostage
They getting busy in the city it's raw
Better deadbolt the door it ain't safe no more

Southside get busy ya?ll
Northside get busy ya?ll
Westside get busy ya?ll
Worldwide get busy ya?ll

Approach with caution be cautious when talking to bosses
I feel I?ve been through a metamorphis
I?m mutated by unknown forces
The feelin of course is something that's hard to describe I?m half dead never felt more alive
Reborn removed the gold coins from my eyes
I?ve been down but now I'm back up
Bout to act up boy you better back up
When you see me set up shop know to pack up
I crack up when a rapper gets slapped up
Number one reson ya?ll should give rap up
Dice it's mine, I got it all wrapped up
I?m kindda W.E.B. Dubois meets Heavy D and the boys smooth as a Rolls Royce built like a tank smoking on gank
I?m walking through the Guggenheim Raw Life Black Ink

Southside get busy ya?ll
Northside get busy ya?ll
Westside get busy ya?ll
Worldwide get busy ya?ll

Now on your mark get set
Go cop everything you ever heard by P.Crack Dice Raw and Black
Fuck the internet buy a baseball bat break a bootlegger leg all I listen to is vets, your fresh of the step
I come directly at your OG neck
I?m used to the one two check not the one two step
Um strapped I?ll leave every cat among you wet
Now lets GO! you know I'm politically incorrect
At the show I start it with a can I get a ho and the hoes go retarded
The popo tape off the stage for caution, its badlands north philly get it in!
Its crack man, used to backspin now I spend stacks in sack's and uncle sam tryin to tax all my hard earned raps damn! we makin yin, pesos, euros, we representin'..

Southside get busy ya?ll
Northside get busy ya?ll
Westside get busy ya?ll
Worldwide get busy ya?ll
