Kanye West Two Words Lyrics

[Kanye West]
We in the streets playa, getcha mail
It's only two places you'll end up - either dead or in jail
Still nowhere to go...still nowhere to go
Now throw ya hands up bustless, bustas, boostas, hoes
Everybody, **** that
Still nowhere to go...sill nowhere to go..

[Mos Def]
Two words, United States, no love, no brakes
Low brow, high stakes, crack smoke, black folks
Big Macs, fat folks, ecstasy capsules
Presidential scandals, everybody MOVE

Two words, Mos Def, K West, hot ****
Calm down, get back, ghetto people, got this
Game ball, lock ****, dump off, **** ****
We won't stop ****, everybody MOVE

Two words, BK , NY, bedstuy
Two hawks, too hungry, too many, that's why
These streets know game, can't ball, don't play
Every traffic, one lane, everybody MOVE

Two words, Mos Def, black check, hot ****
Calm down, get back, ghetto people, got this
Game point lock, long pump cocked
We won't stop, everybody MOVE

[Chorus]
Now throw ya hands up bustless, bustas (Throw your hands up high)
Boostas, hoes, everybody, **** that (ohhhhhh)
Still nowhere to go...still nowhere to go... (ohhhhhh)
And keep ya hands up bustless, bustas (Till they reach the sky)
Boostas, hoes, everybody, **** that (ohhhhhh)
Still nowhere to go...still nowhere to go... (ohhhhhh)

Ah-yo, two words, Chi town, South side, world wide
'Cause I, rep that, till I, ****in' die
One neck, two chains, one waist, two gats
One wall, twenty plaques, dudes say, "Gimme that"
I am limelight, Blueprint, 5 Mics

Go get his rhyme like, should of been signed twice
Most imitated, Grammy nominated
Hotel accommodated, cheerleader, prom dated
Barbershop, playa hated, mom and pop, bootlegged it

Felt like it rained till the roof caved in
Two words, Chi town, raised me, crazy
So I live by two words, "**** you, pay me"
Screamin', Jesus save me

You know how the game be
I can't let em change me
'Cause on Judgment Day, you gon blame me
Look God, it's the same me

I (Throw) basically know now (Your) we could (Up) racially profile (High)
Cuffed up and hosed down, pimped up and hoe down (ohhhhhh)
Plus I got a whole city to hold down (ohhhhhh)
From the bottom to the top
So only place to go down

[Chorus]

[Freeway]
Two words, Freeway, two letters, A-are
Turn y'all rap *****z into two words, fast runners
Like Jackie Jurner, you better sleep with your burner
The heat skeet, blow a reef through ya car

My God, two words, no guns, break arms
Break necks, break backs, Steven Segul
Free... young bars, fresh men of the Roc
Left the beef in the pot Jay sent for his dogs

And broads, forget ya squad, let em find for yourself
Have you screamin' out four words "Send for the Lord"
Two words, Freeway's slightly retarded
**** around, throw a clip in ya artist, leave with his broad..

Throw... (red) Your... (white)
Hands... (blue) Up... (black)

Throw... (calm) Your... (down)
Hands... (move) Up... (back)

Throw... (************s) Your... (askin)
Hands... (who is) Up... (that)

Throw... (you know) Your... (it's the)
Hands... (almighty) Up... (Mighty Johnny Jack)

Throw... (Mos) Your... (Def)
Hands... (K) Up... (West)

Throw... (there go) Your... (people)
Hands... (get this) Up... (**** off ya chest)

Throw... (north) Your... (to the south)
Hands... (to the east) Up... (to the west)

Throw... (we got) Your... (that concert)
Hands... (it was no) Up... (contest)

HIGH! (an show it to em like)
