The People Songtext

Yeah, this for the people

This is street ra-dio, for unsung hero
Ridin' in they regal, tryin' to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

And the struggles of the brothers and the folks
With lovers under dope, experiment to discover hopes
Scuffle for notes, the rougher I wrote, times was harder
Went from rocky starter to the voice of a martyr
While white folk focus on dogs and yoga
My people on the low end tryin' to ball and get over
Lyrics are like liquor for the fallen soldiers
From the bounce to the ounce, it's all our culture
Everyday we hustlin', tryin' to get them custom rims
Law we ain't trustin' them, thick broads we lustin' them
Sick and tired of punchin' it, I look on the bus at them
When I see 'em strugglin', I think how I'm touchin' them


The days, have come (It's about the people)
Now we, are one (It's about the people)
Just take, your time (It's about the people)
And then, you'll find (It's about the people)

This is street ra-dio, for unsung hero
Ridin' in they regal, tryin' to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

The people said that I was sharp on TV
At the Grammy's, though they tried to India Arie me
Got back stage, and I bumped into Stevie
He said no matter what, the people gon' see me
Can't leave rap alone, the streets need me
Hunger in they eyes, is what seems to feed me
Inside peace mixed with beef seem to breed me
Nobody believe, until I believe me
Now I'm on the rise doin' business with my guys
Visions realize, music affected lives
A gift from the skies, to be recognized
I'm keeping my eyes on the people, that's the prize


The days, have come (It's about the people)
Now we, are one (It's about the people)
Just take, your time (It's about the people)
And then, you'll find (It's about the people)

This is street ra-dio, for unsung hero
Ridin' in they regal, tryin' to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

From Englewood to a single hood in Botswana
I see the I in We, yours is my drama
Standin' in front of the judge with no honor
My raps ignite the people like Obama
The karma of the streets is needs and takes
Sometimes we find peace in beats and breaks
Put the bang in the back so the seats can shake
Rebel Cadillac music for the people's sake
The People

The days, have come (It's about the people)
Now we, are one (It's about the people)
Just take, your time (It's about the people)
And then, you'll find (It's about the people)
