WYCLEF JEAN


You Say Keep It Gangsta Lyrics

Wyclef, Butch Cassidy, Sharissa
(What up? Uh)
From the West Indies to the West Coast
Callabo
(You say keep it gangsta)

But when the beef come, you're the first to run
(You say keep it gangsta)
Yo, that ain't your gun, it belongs to
(You say keep it gangsta)
You roll with a hundred
But when the beef come don't nobody want it
(Gangster)
La, la la la, la, la la la

I want to dedicate this chant to my people
Locked down livin' life in the yard
(Keep it gangsta)
Keep a shank boofed up in their tape
Just in case a thug wanna play hard
(Keep it gangsta)

All this ice-grillin' talk 'bout you King of New York
Now you wanna call a guard
(That ain't gangsta)
But it's too late when the guard show up
'Cause your body's going straight to the morgue
(You say keep it gangsta)

But when the beef come, you're the first to run
(You say keep it gangsta)
Yo, that ain't your gun, it belongs to
(You say keep it gangsta)
You roll with a hundred
But when the beef come don't nobody want it
(Gangsta)
Gangsta, oh

I wanna dedicate this jam to the ladies holdin' spots
When they fellows lock down
(Keep it gangsta)
Keep a glock in they pocket
Blowin' shots till they pray I'm in town
(Keep it gangsta)

And to the snitch that ratted on rich
The streets got you sixteen rounds
(That ain't gangsta)
But there's only one place for a gully rat
Six feet under the ground
(You say keep it gangsta)

I'm gon' keep it gangsta
(You say keep it gangsta)
La, la la la, la, la la la
(You say keep it gangsta)
You roll with a hundred
But when the beef come don't nobody want it
(Gangsta)

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up
Yo, hey yo, stop with the posin'
Y'all ain't really holdin'
I'm about to open, a chapter of the Omen

Casket closin', bodies, frozen
I've, been chosen, y'all forsaken
Ante up, so the chains get taken
Flash backs of the rock season in the making

Ain't no more MC'n, ice is just gleamin'
And you wonder why you got robbed
'Cause your life had no meaning, fake gangsta
(You say keep it gangsta)

But when the beef come, you're the first to run
(You say keep it gangsta)
Yo, that ain't your gun, it belongs to
(You say keep it gangsta)
You roll with a hundred
But when the beef come don't nobody want it
(Gangsta)
Nobody, nobody, nobody
(You say keep it gangsta)

Now what would you do if Henchman's came for you?
(Gangsta)
Nine out of ten times you would flea your crew
(Gangsta)

So people you're lying say you running these streets
(You say keep it gangsta)
You better watch out 'cause they have heat
(Gangsta)

Now what would you do if Big Jack came for you?
(Gangsta)
Nine out of ten times you would leave your crew
(Gangsta)

So people you're lying say you running these streets
(Gangsta)
You better watch out 'cause they have heat

Gangsta
I'm gonna keep it gangsta
(You say keep it gangsta)
La, la la la, la, la la la

Gangsta
You say keep it gangsta
Gangsta
You say keep it gangsta
Gangsta
