niggas lie alot lyrics – talib kweli

[talib speaking:]
i ain’t out 2 diss n*body
but we gon keep it real 4 a second
can we keep it real 4 a second
brooklyn stand up
if u doing ya grizzly i respect that
but a lot of rappers is saying things they don’t mean
people see through dat
talib kweli
[chorus:]
n*gg*s lie a lot, n*gg*s lie a lot
n*gg*s lie, n*gg*s lie, n*gg*s lie a lot
i know u think u nice,
u just nice on ya block
wit these crabs in da bow
tryin 2 rise 2 the top
[verse 1:]
this is why i’m hot
this is why i’m hot
i ain’t scared 2 die
i ain’t scared of gettin shot
i got the fear of god
and from all that i been through
if u f*ck with the family
then i gotta put it in u
pause, now continue
i love the compet*tion
i ain’t got no issue with the battles or dissin
but i keep it straight wit u
we shootin from the hip
i can’t stand these rappers dat just shootin off they lip
every rapper is a clapper
your producer is a shooter
engineer gotta nine
label boss gotta ruger
yeah right we ain’t stupid
we don’t believe these losers
gotta mac in da booth
tell the truth, it’s a computer
so let me guess u make it that impressin
i seen u on myspace, u just wanna be friends
so let’s not pretend, i respected ya block
until i put it all together, now let’s connect da dots
[chorus]
[verse 2:]
ok, u say u rap
u know how i can tell u whack
it’s 2007 n u still sellin crack
back n 1986 when we was shootin over sneakers
crack was king but now they slangin n it’s drastically cheaper
it ain’t a real demand there ain’t no short supply
just the same old crackheads getting twice as high
these n*gg*s like 2 lie on how they kill on corners
they still corny, they don’t know what the real new york is
faster than a rose n crime inner city drop
it wasn’t cuz the mayor added 40,000 cops
u on the corner like “wow, my style is pretty hot”
but my style mile is equal 2 20 city blocks
most say new york is soft
it’s softer with the beef sh*t
n*gg*s can’t separate the music from the street sh*t
man that’s some weak sh*t
them n*gg*s never cl*ssic
remember b*st*rds
talib kweli forever blacksmithin
