talkin to you lyrics – mos def

[mos def] *talking behind singing vocals*
it’s always the nervous cats, that’s like…
yo money, you tryin to dis me or something?
what you tryin to get fly or something?
you tryin to get a little rep off me or something,
money?
let me tell you something money, you don’t know me like
that
nawi’msayin, you don’t know none of my crew like that
nawi’msayin, and if you really wanna make some little
insinuation
about me nawi’msayin, don’t talk about it, be about it
money
if you wanna do something, we can do it right now

[pharoahe monch]
i levitate through meditation
sitting my legs crossed, source to build force field
to shield my immediate surroundings
avoiding falling sheet rock, rubble and granite
expand, white man, got plans to feed the planet
excessive hate, repercussions of manic-depressive state
panic, god forbid we all take it for granted
delivering lyrical thoughts for spiritual dividends
half the concentrate, like hampstead we’ll be livin in
magnetic boring them, it’s a must i score again
and pollute em, shoot em like white students in oregon
cuz when i was broke, i always found figures to f*ck
b*tches
wit full-force like them muscle-bound n*gg*s

[rah digga]
well it’s the r-a-h, big up to brick city
when i’m not rippin n*gg*s i be ?feelin wit commitee?
got two rap clicks, so bring all the kingred
buggin off of rappers sayin sh*t that i been said
askin me how your mob sound, bringin my high down
flipmode put sh*t together quicker than a seamstress
thinkin i talk white cuz i speak proper english
all up in your air like i was celly interference
rip shows and make little cameo appearance
white label to death if i can’t get no clearance

[mos def] *talking behind vocals*
alot of cats think i’m trapped in a box, livin cruel
and if that’s true
i’m talkin to you
thinkin of dissin your st**z, your degress, everything
you’re attached to then
i’m talkin to you
wonderin who we talkin about, yo is my name in his
mouth, well then
i’m talkin to you
no mystery, you ain’t got to scratch your head
like “is he dissin me?”, we talkin to you

[a-b*tta]
aiyyo we severed the lever that i pull
it’s never the bull, sh*t instead of the full clip,
click
you get hit in the head wit dialect
when i pre-fect my new script
check the architecht then select the newest blueprint
when i pro-ject the move-ment of the mic, it might
strike
and brand new life trife that handle
?flyin off?, literature that’s pure
yo we miniature before, you finished yours, i get mine
musically inclined, like the sign of a clef
to my death, i rhyme and yes i left you, sense-less in
the mind
plus i’m, going to show no re-pentance
my flow’s relentless, you know the sentence

[talib kweli]
you will respect it when we set it
fake mc’s get tossed
for leavin the microphone covered wit the gloss
don’t get lost, b*tch-*sses who switch fastest
when my hits smashes, impacts like whip crashes
f*ckin up your face like thick gl*sses
you still can’t see sh*t
i’ll sn*tch your faith, your imagination won’t believe
it
it’s ill, you can’t conceive it
any n*gg* can make a baby, it takes a man to be a
father
why bother, you’ll be run over in the street like
frogger
comatose like central park joggers when my crew goes
wildin
lyricist who will never lounge till all wack sh*t is
silenced
i’m not violent, n*gg*s come aggressive wit that
nonsense
yo, it’s time for us to get aggressive wit our
conscience

[mos def]
alot of cats think i’m chattin about
them and they crew, and if that’s true
i’m talkin to you
wondering if i’m dissin you and everything you’re
attached to
i’m talkin to you
runnin your mouth, wonderin “yo, who mos be talkin
bout?”
i’m talkin to you
no mystery, you can consider yourself dissed officially
you can consider yourself dissed officially
you can consider yourself dissed officially
*ranting and shouting until end*
