Hold Tight - Slum Village feat Q-Tip

Hold tight, this is the last time you hear me
I'm out now, this is the last time to cheer me
N_ggas in the game is getting too slimy
Liable to make this peace brother turn grimy
I'm a leave it in the hands of the Slum now
Take it away from where it comes from now
A lot of you cats in the music business
Shiftless, I'll put you on the sh_t list
Did your intuition say to sh_t on me?
I'm a just flip your ears, yo you hear me b?
D'Angelo play your piano
Jay Dee flip another beat for me
Hold tight with Baatin and my n_gga T3
Busta Bus, watch out for who you trust
Ali Shaheed, it's your blood that I bleed
Yes, Phife, for you I will give my life
It's the Umma sh_t fo real till there's no more light
All you foul motherf_ckers change your wrong to right
Make sure y'all bring your music to the area flight
Hold tight

Hold tight... [repeat]

Hold tight get ya ass back what ya did, yo
Hold tight the SV what ya did, yo
Hold tight you don't pay attention man
That's why your money is the size of your attention span
Yo there's something I gotta mention, damn
Who the f_ck is this sitting in my session man?
This is my project, ho, on some MC Shan
Not yours, what's your intentions man
Probably bootlegging my tape at a concession stand
What the f_ck, n_ggas never learn their lesson, man
I try my best not to hold the Smith & Wesson, man
But I gotta hold something cause n_ggas test you man
Anyway yo keep it moving keep the questions and
Maybe I can bless you with the test presses man
Until then, hold tight


Guess who's making this cheese this cash this dust
So much cash in my hand that I got paper cuts
I'm trying to become a winner trying to get with us
That's one of the reasons I had to f_ck you up
I caught you people at my window trying see what I'm doing
So I pulled out the 45 and commenced to start shooting (see ya)
See I miss with every dilla cause young were keeping it moving
Now that's some root news and now watch what you're doing
So hold tight


You don't understand
I've been doing this sh_t since Duran Duran
Now I'm a make some more paper cash, God damn
I'm outta this, cause you don't appreciate
I step up in the place trying to cultivate
You sipping on your tanqueray whilst we levitate
You ain't got no reason to celebrate
You caught up in my trap, sealing your fate
Never was it once you co-operate
Was last you just self destruct inside your hate
I hope you're feeling better now
Hold tight to my rhyme, n_gga don't cry
It's alright you can move at your own pace
Altogether now
Hold tight
