Takeover - Jay-Z

Thanks to dj.flash@pobox.com for these lyrics.

[Jay-Z]
R.O.C., we runnin this rap sh_t
Memphis Bleek, we runnin this rap sh_t
B. Mac, we runnin this rap sh_t
Freeway, we run this rap sh_t
O & Sparks, we runnin this rap sh_t
Chris & Neef, we runnin this rap sh_t

The takeover, the break's over n_gga
God MC, me, Jay-Hova
Hey lil' soldier you ain't ready for war
R.O.C. too strong for y'all
It's like bringin a knife to a gunfight, pen to a test
Your chest in the line of fire witcha thin-ass vest
You bringin them Boyz II Men, HOW them boys gon' win?
This is grown man B.I., get you rolled into triage
Beatch - your reach ain't long enough, dunny
Your peeps ain't strong enough, f_cka
Roc-A-Fella is the army, better yet the navy
N_ggaz'll kidnap your babies, spit at your lady
We bring - knife to fistfight, kill your drama
Uh, we kill you motherf_ckin ants with a sledgehammer
Don't let me do it to you dunny cause I overdo it
So you won't confuse it with just rap music

R.O.C., we runnin this rap sh_t
M-Easy, we runnin this rap sh_t
The Broad Street Bully, we runnin this rap sh_t
Get zipped up in plastic when it happens that's it
Freeway, we runnin this rap sh_t
O & Sparks, we runnin this rap sh_t
Chris & Neef, we runnin this rap sh_t
{*Watch out!! We run New York -> KRS-One*}

I don't care if you Mobb Deep, I hold triggers to crews
You little F_CK, I've got money stacks bigger than you
When I was pushin weight, back in eighty-eight
you was a ballerina I got your pictures I seen ya
Then you dropped Shook Ones, switch your demeanor
Well - we don't believe you, you need more people
Roc-A-Fella, students of the game, we passed the classes
Nobody can read you dudes like we do
Don't let 'em gas you like Jigga is ass and won't clap you
Trust me on this one - I'll detach you
Mind from spirit, body from soul
They'll have to hold a mass, put your body in a hole
No, you're not on my level get your brakes tweaked
I sold what ya whole album sold in my first week
You guys don't want it with Hov'
Ask Nas, he don't want it with Hov', nooooo!

R.O.C., we runnin this rap sh_t
B. Sigel, we runnin this rap sh_t
M-Easy, we runnin this rap sh_t
Get zipped up in plastic when it happens that's it
O & Sparks, we runnin this rap sh_t
Freeway, we run this rap sh_t
Chris & Neef, we runnin this rap sh_t
{*Watch out!! We run New York -> KRS-One*}

I know you missin all the - FAAAAAAAME!
But along with celebrity comes bout seventy shots to your frame
N_gga; you a - LAAAAAAAME!
Youse the fag model for Karl Kani/Esco ads
Went from, Nasty Nas to Esco's trash
Had a spark when you started but now you're just garbage
Fell from top ten to not mentioned at all
to your bodyguard's Oochie Wally verse better than yours
Matter fact you had the worst flow on the whole f_ckin song
but I know - the sun don't shine, then son don't shine
That's why your - LAAAAAAAME! - career come to a end
There's only so long fake thugs can pretend
N_gga; you ain't live it you witnessed it from your folks pad
You scribbled in your notepad and created your life
I showed you your first tec on tour with Large Professor
(Me, that's who!) Then I heard your album bout your tec on the dresser
So yeah I sampled your voice, you was usin it wrong
You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song
And you ain't get a coin n_gga you was gettin f_cked and
I know who I paid God, Serchlite Publishing
Use your - BRAAAAAAAIN! You said you been in this ten
I've been in it five - smarten up Nas
Four albums in ten years n_gga? I can divide
That's one every let's say two, two of them sh_ts was due
One was - NAHHH, the other was Illmatic
That's a one hot album every ten year average
And that's so - LAAAAAAAME! N_gga switch up your flow
Your sh_t is garbage, but you try and kick knowledge?
(Get the f_ck outta here) You n_ggaz gon' learn to respect the king
Don't be the next contestant on that Summer Jam screen
Because you know who (who) did you know what (what)
with you know who (yeah) but just keep that between me and you for now

R.O.C., we runnin this rap sh_t
M-Easy, we runnin this rap sh_t
The Broad Street Bully, we runnin this rap sh_t
Get zipped up in plastic when it happens that's it
Freeway, we run this rap sh_t
O & Sparks, we runnin this rap sh_t
Chris & Neef, we runnin this rap sh_t
{*Watch out!! We run New York -> KRS-One*}

A wise man told me don't argue with fools
Cause people from a distance can't tell who is who
So stop with that childish sh_t, n_gga I'm grown
Please leave it alone - don't throw rocks at the throne
Do not bark up that tree, that tree will fall on you
I don't know why your advisors ain't forewarn you
Please, not Jay, he's, not for play
I don't slack a minute, all that thug rappin and gimmicks
I will end it, all that yappin be finished
You are not deep, you made your bed now sleep
Don't make me expose you to them folks that don't know you
N_gga I know you well, all the stolen jew-els
Twinkletoes you breakin my heart
You can't f_ck with me - go play somewhere, I'm busy
And all you other cats throwin shots at Jigga
You only get half a bar - f_ck y'all n_ggaz
