Can’t Knock The Hustle – Jay-Z

(feat. Mary J. Blige)
I’m makin short term goals,whonder whether foes
just put away the leathers and put ice on the gold
chilly with enough bail money to free a big willy
high stakes, i got more at stake than philly
shoppin sprees, copin three, duece fever i guess its fully loaded,
ah yes,
bouncin in the lex luger, tires smoke like buddha
50 g’s to the crap shooter,
niggas can’t fade me
chrome socks beamin, through my periphial i see ya schemin
stop dreamin’,i leave ya body steamin
niggas is feenin, whats the meanin
i’m leanin on any nigga intervenin with the sound of my money machine-in
my cuff runnin over with hundreds
im one of the best niggas that done it
six digits and runnin,
y’all niggas don’t want it
i got the godfather flow, the don juan demarco
swear to god, don’t get it fucked up

[Mary j. blige(chorus)]

takin out this time
to give you a piece of my mind
(cause you can’t knock the hustle)
but though you think you are
baby one day you’ll be a star

that scene out of state where i drop my slang
i’m deep in the south kickin up top game
bouncin on the highway switchin 4 lanes
screamin through the sun roof money ain’t a thang
your worst fear confirmed,
me and my fam roll tight like the firm
gettin down for life, thats right, you better learn
why play with fire, burn
we get together like a choir
to acquire what we desire
we do dirt like worms
produce g’s like sperm
til legs spread like germs
i got extensive hoes, with expensive clothes
and i sip wine, and split ends exposed
but y’all don’t know……
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
cause you can’t knock the hustle

Excuse Me Miss Again – Jay-Z


[Hook: Pharrell]
Memph Bleek always smoking that lalala….(Hooo)
Beanie Sigel always smoking that lalala….(Hooo)
Neptunes track smoke like lalala… (Hooo)
It’s the ROC baby sing, I lullaby
Come on!

[Chorus]
Excuse me miss, I’m the shit (do you want me to do it?)
You should come, hang wit me, basically (do you want me to do it?)
Hold up, skip all the singin’ lets go ride tonight, mami (Come on now…Uhhh)

[Jay-Z]
I know my English ain’t as modest as you like
But come, get some, you little bums
I take the cake from under the baker’s thumbs
I bake the cake get two of them for one
Then I move the +weight+ like I’m +Oprah’s son+
Uhhh, I show you how to do this son
Young don’t mess wit chicks in Burberry paddings
Fake Manolo boots straight from Steve Madden (un-uh)
He padded hisself the rap JFK, you wanna pass for my Jaqueline Onassis
Then hop ya ass out that S-class
Lay back in that maebach, roll the best grass, I ask…
Have you in your long-legged life
ever seen a watch surrounded by this much pink ice? (uhh)
Look but don’t touch, muthafucker think twice
Cause the gat that I clutch got a little red light
Need a light?…

[Hook]
To smoke that lalala…(Hooo)
Beanie Sigel always smoking that lalala….(Hooo)
Memph Bleek always smoking that lalala….(Hooo)
It’s the ROC mami sing I lullaby
Come on!

[Chorus]

[Jay-Z]
We got brothers full of Arme, mamis in Manolo
Bags by Chanel, Louis Vuitton logos
All attracted to Hov’ because they know dough
When they see him, which be European
If you’re a +te-en+ (ten) chances your wit +him+
If you’re a five you know you ridin’ wit th-em
Sick wit the pen nigga, no position in the world could fix him
No prescription, you could prescribe to subside his affliction
He’s not a sane man, more like reign man twitchin’
You can’t rain dance on his picnic
No Haitian voodoo, no headless chickens can dead his sickness (whoo)
No Ouija board, you can’t see me dog, nigga you +CB4+
This ain’t +Chris Rock+ bitch, it’s the ROC bitch
And I’m the +franchise+ like a Houston Rocket
Nawimean (Yao Ming)…

[Chorus]

[Jay-Z]
Forget English talk body language

Pink diamond necklace, strawberry wrist
Please excuse yourself, you’re very sick
Don’t confuse me wit marbury out this bitch
Run up on me at the light, you could lose your life
Muh’fuckas must be smoking they lalala la crack

Back to the music, I ain’t wit all that
Plus the feds tappin my music I get all that

Public industry number two is my whole crew R-O-C
And I ain’t concerned wit’ who like me, who like you

But get a pen, I can tell you pricks my plans for the future

Where Have You Been – Jay-Z

(feat. Beanie Sigel)
[Beanie Sigel]
Damn how am I gonna say this shit?
hey… hey dad, yeah it’s your boy
remember me? I wanna talk to you scrap

I remember being kicked out the house
’cause I looked just like you
Said I’d be nothing but a crook
just like you
The niggaz in the hood was shook
Where the just like you
‘Cause all they said was little whitey look
I’m just like you
But dog I can’t see it at all, shit
We never kicked it at all
We never pitched or kicked at a ball
dog, you never taught me shit
how to fight, ride a bike, fix a flat
none of that sorts of shit
Nigga you was an abusive pops
fuck you left me out to dry, stuck
gotta teach news to box
gotta teach news to bop
and that aint the half of it man
I gotta teach news to block
It’s about time we have a father to son (nigga sit down)
sit down let me tell you ’bout your fatherless sons
how they grew to be men and father they sons
father they daughters
nigga, you left a fatherless daughter
I never follow your orders
nigga you make me sick
pussy you could….ooh
how you gonna leave these memories in the back of my mind
I can see it clear as day you smackin my mom
I ‘member that day you showed me that gat, that 9
put it in my palm when I was young
and said that would be mine, you turned me out
the reason why I hit the block
reason why I tried to hit them cops
reason why I started hittin shots
reason why I started gettin licked
and drinkin syrup and skippin court
ginger bread man never think of gettin caught
look at your hand man damn you fought
nigga you left my mom
left us with no good-bye’s
you left us out to dry
you left us with no letters, notes, (nothing!) no replies
no digits numbers was unlisted
you left us with some of my loneliest night
nigga some of my hungriest nights
shit, one of the reasons for years (shit embarrasin)
damn we used to think money was white
yeah you gave us life like, fruit from a plant
we aint eat right from them foods from them stamps
and to think you was my pop,
man i gotta stop shit

READ  A Ballad For The Fallen Soldier - Jay-Z

[CHORUS]
Female: Daddy, Where Have You Been?
Beanie: And when you come home, you got us here all alone
Female: Mommy, Where Daddy Went?
Beanie: You always stick up for him
Always said you’d make up for him
Female: Mommy, What Happened Then?
Beanie: What was you cheatin on him?
Why he’s always beatin’ on you?
Female: Daddy, Where Have You Been?
Beanie: Nigga, you gonna hear me out

[Jay-Z]
I wanted to walk just like him (remember?)
wanted to talk just like him (word)
often momma said I look too much
and I thought just like him (it could happen)
wanted to drink Miller nips
and smoke Newports just like you
but you left me, now I’m goin to court just like you
I would say “my daddy loves me and he’ll never go away”
bullshit, do you even remember December’s my birthday?
do you even remember the tender boy
you turned into a cold young man
with one goal and one plan
get mommy out of some jam, she was always in one
always short with the income
always late with the rent
You said that you was comin through
I would stay in the hallway (waitin)
always playin the bench (waitin)
and that day came and went
Fuck You! very much you showed me the worst kind of pain
but I’m stronger and trust me I will never hurt again
will never ask mommy “why daddy don’t love me?
Why is we so poor?, why is life so ugly?
Mommy why is your eyes puffy?”
please don’t cry everything’ll be alright
I know it’s dark now, but we gon’ see the light
It’s us against the world
we don’t need him, right? (right)
mommy drivin 6’s now (yeah), I got riches now (yeah)
I bought I nice home for both of my sisters now
we doin real good
we don’t miss you now
see how life twists around, fucker?
