Mos Def Niggas In Poorest Lyrics[Intro] Live from America Yasiin, Yasiin, y'all seen N.I.P, sing it [Verse 1] Poor so hard, my clean clothes look grimy, pretty women don't mind me So what's fifty grand to a young nigga like me? More than my annual salary Poor so hard, this shit crazy, walk outside the whole world hate me Nervous stares at the thoroughfare, surveillance cameras, police tracing Poor so hard, this shit weird, we be home and still be scared There's grief here, there's peace here, easy and hard to be here Psycho, liable to turn Michael, take your pick, Myers, Myers, Myers, same shit Poor so hard, got holey socks, dope block on my stove top Jumbotrons for astronauts, high in orbit off planet rock , say Poor so hard, this chopper too,we starving Marvin, you hot food There's birds of prey, no escape ,open-air prison, local zoo Poor so hard, who getting faded? Little Maurice in the sixth grade No mama, no father, role model the dope game, say Poor so hard, bitch behave,standing behind the deuce-deuce-trey Ice-cold, heat blow, closed casket, cold case [Hook] Poor so hard, that shit cray [Verse 2] These young bloods is looking scary at the mall They wearing pants, you can still see they drawers They rob a nigga in the bathroom stall They took his life cause he ain't want to take it off Poor so hard, that shit cray,ain't it, Bey? Diabetics, fish filet Poor so hard, your house so cold, nigga, it ain't spring Every winter landlord fuckin' with my heat again Bougie girl, grab your hand, show you how to do this ghetto dance Fuck your French, we ain't in France, I'm just saying Prince Williams ain't do it right, if you ask me If I was him, I'd put some black up in my family Fake Gucci, my nigga, fake Louis, my killa Real drugs, my dealer, who the fuck is Margiela? Doctors say I'm the illest, I ain't got no insurance It's them niggas in poorest, be them rebel guerillas, huh [Interlude: Malcolm X] I don't worry, I tell you I am a man who believed that I died 20 years ago And I live like a man who is dead already I have no fear whatsoever of anybody or anything [Hook] [Verse 3] To the kings and queens and everyone in every place, yo Don't get caught up in no throne, don't get caught up in no throne Don't get caught up in no throne Towers of Babylon rise up and so they shall fall As it was written before, amen, so it goes on Don't get caught up in no throne, don't get caught up in no throne Don't get caught up in no throne These devils out here lying, acting like the people ain't dying We silver and they gold, ain't never saved a soul Don't get caught up in no throne, don't get caught up in no throne Don't get caught up in no throne Signs through the earth and through the heavens, lunar, solar eclipses We seeking for forgiveness and safety for our children Don't get caught up in no throne, don't get caught up in no throne Don't get caught up in no throne,Allah is in control
