It Takes a Nation - Ice Cube

There are seven known wonders of the world, you about to witness the eighth muthaf**ka?

[Verse 1]
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
Im sitting next to your ass and cant hear what you got to say
My sh_t is loud, my ears is ringing
My paint job is wet
My chrome is gleaming
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 depressing
Don't give a muthaf**ka time to learn his lesson
A lunatic, y'all know what I represent
The only rapper that wanna fist-fight the president

[Hook]

It takes a nation of n_ggas to hold us back (x4)

[Verse 2]
When I bang this its dangerous
N_ggas go brainless
So bang this with the four-five stainless
And understand that you looking at the famous
West-coast rapper who act like an anus
Hollywood, they thought they could tame this
Pit-bull, but I know what the game is
Them f**kers cheat like an NBA ref
If you smoke one
They'll electrocute you to death
I got god on my intellect
Godzilla by the neck
When the n_gga come through, who you wanna holla at
Ghostwriters hit the deck
When ya boi got a tech
Where the f**k is Africa-Bamabata at
We need to take it back, f**k Viacom
Clear Clear Channel and Radio One
You muthaf**kas programmed by the programmers
That's why you getting locked up by the dope slammers
Not me

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
They music so fluffy, Im'a stay gutter
That sh_t is kinda popcorn, my sh_t is so b_tter
My style never change in 22 summers
Straight independent and doing my numbers
This sh_t don't sell, you know Im still paid
So sour-puss n_ggas, can drink lemonade
Im doin it for the love
You doing it because
You need that advancement to spend on them dubs
I don't need a penny, but I need many
Don't worry bout ma money boi, cause I got plenty
You muthaf**kas worry bout flossing so much
You don't know the fundamentals, you forgot how to brush
These thirty-two teeth
Will give your ass grief
Bite you like a fat burger if you got beef
So whose it gonna be, your favourite MC
Your scared of the government, they scared of me
Now what?

[Hook]

It takes a nation of n_ggas to hold us back (x3)
It takes a nation of n_ggas and streets of crack
