Hold it now, oh
Come on, come on
Alright y'all
I testified my mama cried
Black people died when the other man lied
See the TV listen to me double trouble
I overhaul and I'm comin' from the lower level
I'm takin' tabs 'sho 'nuff stuff to grab
Like shirts it hurts 'wit a neck to wreck
Took a poll 'cause our soul took a toll
From the education of a TV station
But look around hear go the sound of the wreckin' ball
Boom and pound when I shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
Come on, alright
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
What I use in the battle for the mind hit it hard
Like it supposed pullin' no blows to the nose
Like Uncle L said I'm rippin' up shows
Then what it is only five percent of the biz
I'm addin' woes that's how da way it goes
Then you think I rank never drank, point blank
I own loans, suckers got me runnin' from the bank
Civil liberty I can't see to pay a fee
I never saw a way to pay a sap to read the law
Then become a victim of a lawyer
Don't know ya, never saw ya tape cued
Gettin' me sued playin' games wit' my head
What the judge said put me in the red
Got me thinkin' 'bout a trigger to the lead
No no, my education mind say suckers gonna pay anyway
There gonna be a day 'cause the troop they roll in
To posse up whole from the ground ready to go
Throw another round sick of the ride it's suicide
For the other side of town when I find a way to shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
Hold it, come on
Alright y'all, alright y'all
Come on now
Who count the money in da neighborhood
But we spendin' money to no end
Lookin' for a friend in a war to the core
Rippin' up the poor in da stores
Till they get a brother kickin' down doors
Then I figure I kick it bigger
Look 'em dead in the eye
And they wince defense is pressurized
They don't want it to be another racial attack
In disguise so give some money back
I like Nike but wait a minute
The neighborhood supports so put some money in it
Corporations owe dye gotta give up the dough
To da town or else we gotta shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
I shut 'em down
Shut 'em down, shut 'em, shut 'em down
Alright y'all one more time here we go again
Alright come on, take it down, hold it come on
Wait a minute now, hey, hey, hey
Yeah yeah, we got to take it slow
Pump the beat, pump the beat, pump the beat y'all
Oh, bring it low, bring it low, bring it low y'all
