Ain't Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo) - The Black Keys

(Chorus - Mos Def)

(Verse One - Jim Jones)
They tell me pain only shows you where you going
You get there last and that shows you where you been
And when you get the cash that only shows you how to sin
Like when you gettin' fast money and you blow it in the wind
Where we from success one in a million
We thought success was gettin' money in front of the building
End of the summer we was countin' up the killin's
Like they killed baby boy tryin' to run up in the building
Now, love, I bruised one of her rose petals
She was from the concrete and came up out the cold ghetto
But so gentle
But it appears like on a clear night it could thunderstorm
Want some more?

(Chorus - Mos Def)

(Verse Two - Jim Jones)
Most say I'm politically incorrect
But most people scared they spit it so indirect
I been accused of the same things as you, but
I refuse to follows rules of who
The complexion of politics done changed and
And a computer glitch put so many problems in the game
That I probably still be sellin' 'caine if
I didn't get a chance at the stardom or the fame
Bein' humble is a hard quality
to achieve when your ego is crazy with no modesty
We make good music just usin' The Black Keys
And I'm flyin' through the hood in my newest of black V's peace
