Talib kweli - Hush

People of the world
If you out and about
You notice there's a whole lot of yapping going on
Whether it's on a record, in the court of law, in a girl's ear
But me and my people we ain't about that
We about action, action speak louder than words, yo

Action and words dripping off the tongue
Supple like the flesh of the soft and young (young)
The glass half empty, let me pour you some (pour you some)
The glass half full 'cause there's more to come (more to come)
Jammin' on the one, ja-jammin' on the one (jammin' on the one)
Take a deep breath now expand your lungs (expand your lungs)
The breath is the life and it just begun
I thank God for the morning, so, now look here girl

Where you goin'? Come here girl, let me holla holla holla at ya
Yeah, and thrown a couple dollars at you, c'mon
I get paid baby doll I'm a star
You can tell by the make and the model of my car
Yeah, that's the game these young niggas kicking
'Cause dumb niggas tricking but some niggas listen, look
All that whack shit they spillin' in you ear
I don't need none of that, you just feel it in the air

Hush, 'cause you're sounding like a lullaby
You're making me tired, so
Hush, ya' damn game is so weak
It's putting me to sleep, please
Hush, haven't we heard it all before?
Damn from all of y'all, so
Hush, a motherfucker can only take so much
I wish that you'd just hush


Yo, they say it's all about your market
And the best way to reach the audience is to target and to profit from
You know I'm used to reach a higher form of consciousness
That still inspire dancers that's working for twenty dollar tips
Rappers ain't pimps bruh, they acting like chimps
Nah, King Kong ain't got shit on me like Denzel Washington
A marijuana cocktail is the drawl mixed with the chocolate
We bubbling like bong hits from white kids at college and
You about to witness the strength of street knowledge kid
The fact is that I can spit for everything I gotta get
You ain't gonna like it if you got problems well honest shit
I don't like to break my promises so I don't fuck with politics
The classes had to drop them shits 'cause I ain't had no scholarship
Now I come to speak, they give me honorary doctorates
Could it possibly be that I got a degree at rocking this?
Stop it all, born and prosper like Dr. Spock with it

Hush, 'cause you're sounding like a lullaby
You're making me tired, so
Hush, ya' damn game is so weak
It's putting me to sleep, please
Hush, haven't we heard it all before?
Damn from all of y'all, so
Hush, a motherfucker can only take so much
I wish that you'd just hush (yeah, yeah)

Corporate thugs selling whores and drugs (and drugs)
All up in the clubs get to fall in love (fall in love)
Addicted to the life, high off the buzz (off the buzz)
Here now there ain't no ignorin' us
Raw, 'cause she feel it in the ass and hips (and hips)
Wants to sip pass the lips, ike pass this here
I could touch it with my words 'cause a master did
And plus, I ain't on the grabbing shit, it's like this, word
In this life every night I'll find the right type in the mix
Like Jack and Coke with limelight
Funny how we do wrong things to get the mind right
Vision blurry now but it's 20/20 in hindsight
I don't make the sing-along shit, get the rhymes right
I'm nice, I'm sharper than any barber that get the line right
It's in the bag and I'm tagging 'em, getting markers
It's the shit starter on the hit artists like Chris Parker nigga

Hush, 'cause you're sounding like a lullaby
You're making me tired, so
Hush, ya' damn game is so weak
It's putting me to sleep, please
Hush, haven't we heard it all before?
Damn from all of y'all, so
Hush, a motherfucker can only take so much
I wish that you'd just hush

Talib Kweli
Yeah BlackSmith all day, Jean Greezy on the way
Followed by Steady gang, that's how we doin' it, yeah
Eardrum, yo, all you wack MCs go sit down somewhere
