Kamikazee - Chinelas

[CHORUS: x2]

Just ride, feel that vibe

Y'all get live ladies, we gon' party now!

Just ride, feel that vibe

Y'all get live niggaz, we gon' party now!

Man, I remember when hip-hop was all about partyin'

And any place it played was a spot to move your body in

Started in the park and it had everybody droppin' in

Now brothers wanna squeeze it of its life and try to darken it

With boring ass raps, when nobody is hearing it

Soundin' like they the method for a science experiment

Y'all heads ain't been around to see what Dan has seen

After writing lyrics, we used to make dance routines

'Member the "House Party" scene when Kid 'N' Play was battlin'?

And after when the rappin' end, they gave each other dap again

Then they started scatterin' cuz nothing really mattered then

Except the jaw jabberin' with ladies just to dance with them

Dudes with dap was based on who could rap

And who could best imitate the moves of Scoob & Scrap

So while you choose to chat about how much you were a baller

We would argue over who's high top fade was taller

When designs were in, on my head, I shaved a heart

And told your girl, she's the reason for the way it was carved

If you miss the way hip-hop used to sound

Gather everyone you know, cuz yo...

We gon' party now!


Man, I remember when hip-hop was all about the positive

When topics of our songs were socially provocative

Racism was targeted as something to discard but it

Seems today hatred is the way hip-hop is marketed

Too many rappers talkin' shit, what's they malfunction?

Over ten years later, we still headed for self-destruction

Gangsta rap, not many MC's would try

That's why, to this day, we say "peace" instead of "goodbye"

A tradition that's been conditioned from back in the days

When in school, for class projects I'd be rappin' for A's

Braggin' always how we could change the world with a tune

But now I can't watch a video when mom's in the room

I hope it's gone soon cuz everybody's shootin' and killin'

And braggin' about it, I swear rappers are the stupidest villains

Dude, it was ill when cats like Rakim and Kane slammed

When the West Coast All-Stars were in the same gang

When X-Clan jams made a vex man dance

Arms crossed, legs apart is how you'd check Dan's stance

If you hate the road hip-hop's going down

Join the Mono man dem because....

We gon' party now!


Man, I remember when hip-hop was all about battlin'

Except it didn't involve the death of a rapper then

Ain't no need for scrappin' man, they was makin' classic jams

Wars of words to prove no one was in a class with them

To be mic champions' where real props stand

Or battlin' for a name like them two Roxannes

LL and Kool Moe Dee, Juice Crew and BDP

But it seems today the battle is the world against me

Cuz nobody cares about lyrics, what used to be wack

Is what everybody seems to be pickin' up off the rack

Rappers rhymin' so soft, they should be one of the Spices

Somehow people support the modern day Vanilla Ices

Usin' devices like clothing seemingly priceless

The fame I might miss, but I must keep comin' with niceness

Cuz I ain't tryin' to be one of hip-hop's clowns

Keep it raw even when I roar...

We gon' party now!


It's hip-hop y'all, to the top y'all

It don't stop y'all, it goes on and on...[x4]
