it takes a nation lyrics – ice cube

[ice cube]
there are seven known wonders of the world
yeah, hehe, you about to witness the 8th muh’f*cker

i got king kong in my trunk, king kong in my doors
my nuts play ping-pong from the noise
you can hear me from a block away
i’m sittin next to yo’ *ss and can’t hear, what you got to say
my sh*t is loud, my ears is ringin
my paint job is wet, my chrome is gleamin
i feel like a vet ballin on these rookies
an old school bully, you must have played hooky
i bring it like a bookie my aggression is depressin
don’t give a motherf*cker time to learn his lesson!
a lunatic~! y’all know what i represent
the only rapper who wanna fistfight the president!

[chorus: repeat 4x]
it take a nation of n*gg*z to hold us back

[ice cube]
when i bang this is dangerous, n*gg*z go brainless
so bang this with the fo’-five stainless
and understand that you lookin at the famous
west coast rapper, who act like a *n*s
hollywood! they thought they could tame this
pitbull, but i know what the game is
them f*ckers cheat like a nba ref
if you smoke one they’ll electrocute you to death
i got god on my intellect, godzilla on my neck
when a n*gg* come through, who you wanna holla at
ghostriders h*t the deck, when your boy got a tec
where the f*ck is, afrika, bambaataa at?
we need to take it back, f*ck viacom
clear clear channel, and radio one
you motherf*ckers programmed by the programmers
that’s why you gettin locked up by the do’ slammers
not me!

[chorus]

[ice cube]
they music so fluffy, i’ma stay gutter
that sh*t is kind of popcorn, my sh*t is so b*tter
my style never change, in 22 summers
straight independent, and doin my numbers
this ship don’t sail, you know i’m still paid
so sourp*ss n*gg*z, can drink lemonade
i’m doin it for the love, you doin it because
you need that advancement to spend on them dubs
i don’t need a penny, but i need many
don’t worry about my money boy cause i got plenty
you muh’f*ckers worry about flossin so much
you don’t know the fundamentals you forgot how to brush!
these 32 teeth, will give yo’ *ss grief
bite you like a fatburger if you got beef
so who’s it gon’ be? your favorite mc
you scared of the government they scared of me
now what?

[chorus]
it take a nation of n*gg*z and streets of crack [echoes]
