what’s going on lyrics – canibus

repeated male voice:
what (8x)

another male vocalist:
what, what, what’s going on? what’s going on?
what’s going on? what’s going on?
what’s going on? what’s going on?
what’s going on? what’s going on?

canibus:
the club scene is a regular hang-out spot for unclean
women in tight jeans fronting like queens
chickenheads who should be home taking care of their eggs
instead, they always in the club flirting with men
so i don’t care about no hypnoholic b*tches
all i’m concerned with is just bringing they burners in to burn n*gg*s
while security practice it’s mediocre performance
n*gg*s is still stealthfully sneaking their firearms in
often, n*gg*s be acting like they’re marksmen
but couldn’t hit a stationary object
so how you gonna hit a moving target
especially if you alcoholic
the party was coconuts until you started
n*gg*, what’s going on?

male vocalist:
what’s going on? what’s going on?

canibus:
what’s going on these days?
can’t do no hip hop shows without the gunplay.

male vocalist:
what’s going on? what’s going on?

canibus:
what’s going on why ain’t everybody macking?

havoc (slowed):
while you rapping, i’m busy trying to sneak the gat in.

male vocalist:
what’s going on? what’s going on?

canibus:
what’s going on these days?
can’t do no hip hop shows without the gunplay.
before you blaze think about the lives you’ve saved

biggie:
you got a gun up in your waist please don’t shoot up the place

canibus:
ayo, the other night i seen some kid getting loud
running his mouth
till somebody pulled the bang bang out
the shots rang out
this n*gg* in front of me got his back blown out
on the floor with a piece of his small intestines hanging out
i had to scream at one of the bouncers to carry him out
they said, “nah, them n*gg*s is still busting in the crowd.”
then they ducked down close to the ground as the bullets whizzed by
praying to allah cause they don’t wanna die
but neither do i
f*ck it, i gotta be here
as a rapper artist, it’s a vital part of my career
i swear
ya’ll n*gg*s need to chill with that
bringing your handguns to every god d*mn club out the format
everything from semi-autos to macs
chrome or black
plastic gats and all that
believe it or not the government wants that
so they can use that in the dispute to shut down rap
what’s going on?

canibus:
yo, all of my hip hop n*gg*s should feel what i’m speaking upon
? or subjectively touched by?
bullets
being shot by guns, guns being carried by thugs
who come to the club to she’d blood
then remind that everytime a n*gg* reaches for chrome
he jeopardizes more lives than his own
to some this record ain’t even relevant
until you experience how a bullet can shatter your dreams in a milli-sec
by some thug cats who didn’t take that
by busting a gat
they could render somebody handicap
and trapped in a wheel chair over nothing
with the gifts of walking and running sn*tched from them
what the f*ck is going on?
