LyricsView Chords

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem

If you can hear me ladies and gentlemen then I'm very happy that you came here

Ooh-ooh, ooh, whee
That was for Brooklyn
Haha, we get it every time
(You got me on? Oh)
Shout out to all of my crew, East-West, North-South
All the continent, Europe, all abroad international
(Bring it in, bring it in, bring it in, bring it in)
It's a lot of things goin' on y'all
Twenty-first century is comin', twentieth century almost done
A lot of things have changed
A lot of things have not, mainly us
We gon' get it together right? I believe that
Listen, people be askin' me all the time
"Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with hip hop?" (Where do you think hip hop is goin'?)
I tell 'em, "You know what's gonna happen with hip hop whatever's happening with us"
If we smoked out, hip hop is gonna be smoked out
If we doin' alright, hip hop is gonna be doin' alright
People talk about hip hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside, comin' down to visit the townspeople
We are hip hop
Me, you, everybody, we are hip hop
So hip hop is goin' where we goin'
So the next time you ask yourself where hip hop is goin'
Ask yourself, "Where am I goin'? How am I doin'?"
Till you get a clear idea

So if hip hop is about the people
And the hip hop won't get better until the people get better
Then how do people get better? (Hmm)
Well, from my understanding people get better
When they start to understand that, they are valuable
And they not valuable because they got a whole lot of money
Or 'cause somebody, think they sexy
But they valuable 'cause they been created by God
And God makes you valuable
And whether or not you recognize that value is one thing
You got a lot of societies and governments
Tryin' to be God, wishin' that they were God
They wanna create satellites and cameras everywhere and make you think they got the all-seein' eye
Eh, I guess the Last Poets wasn't too far off when they said that certain people got a god complex, I believe it's true
I don't get phased out by none of that, none of that helicopters, the TV screens, the newscasters, the satellite dishes, they just wishin'
They can't really never do that
When they tell me to fear they law, when they tell me to try to have some fear in my heart behind the things that they do
This is what I think in my mind
And this is what I say to them and this is what I'm sayin', to you check it

All over the world hearts pound with the rhythm
Fear not of men because men must die
Mind over matter and soul before flesh
Angels for the pain keep a record in time
Which is passin' and runnin' like a caravan freighter
The world is overrun with the wealthy and the wicked
But God is sufficient in disposin' of affairs
Gunmen and stockholders try to merit my fear
But God is sufficient over plans they prepared
Mos Def in the flesh, where you at? Right here
On this place called Earth, holdin' down my square
'Bout to do it for y'all, and y'all at the fair
So just bounce, come on bounce
Bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce
And just

Just step two three
Just step two three and step two
Two, three and
One, two, three, and four
One, two, three, and four
One, two, three, and four
(One, two, three) Once again

All over the world hearts pound with the rhythm
Fear not of men because men must die
Mind over matter and soul before flesh
Angels for the pain keep a record in time
Which is passin' and runnin' like a caravan freighter
The world is overrun with the wealthy and the wicked
But God is sufficient in disposin' of affairs
Gunmen and stockholders try to merit my fear
But God is sufficient over plans they prepared
Mos Def in the flesh, where you at? Right here
On this place called Earth, holdin' down my square
'Bout to represent in your whole atmosphere
'Bout to represent in your whole atmosphere
To your atmosphere, to your atmosphere
Ooooh, that was for you and Brooklyn too!
