Kingdom Come - Jay-Z lyrics

The Prelude
Jay-Z Song Lyrics

Artist: Jay-Z
Album: Kingdom Come (2006)


[Intro snippets of eddie in 'super fly']
You know, you've got this.. fantasy in your head about
Getting outta the life and, setting the corporate world on its ear
What the fuck you gonna do except hustle?
Besides pimpin... you really ain't got the stomach for that

[Jay-z]
The game's fucked up
Nigga's beats is banging, nigga your hooks did it
Your lyrics didn't and your gangster look did it
So I would write it if y'all could get it
Being intricate'll get you wood, critic
On the internet, they like you should spit it
I'm like you should buy it, nigga that's good business
Hehe, forget this rap shit I need a new hustle
A little bit of everything, the new improved russell
I say that reluctantly cause I do struggle
As you see I can't leave so I do love you
But I'm just a hustler disguised as a rapper
In fact you can't fit this hustle inside of a wrapper
Back when crack was
What these pills are, I was a real star
Complete with real, cars, no video ones
You can come and set up a camera, let the video run
And my real life, complete with real, ice
Vvs boulders oh they're visibly set
Head and shoulders, my invisible neck
You see hova, wasn't digital yet
Befo' steve jobs, made the ipod
Was getting head, jobs, we call that intimate
Back when rappers wouldn't dare play lyrical roulette
With a automatic weapon I was rapping with a tec
(Fresh) like (mannie) be, chain like anti-freeze
Shoebox full of cash, dealer man hand me ki's
Pantries full of arm & hammer, don't take nancy drew to see
What it do, I'm a damn g
Just sent a million dollars through a hands free
That's big money talk, can you answer me?
Before the answer was a 3
I was down in georgetown with a hoya chick, lawyer chick
Sure he's rich now cause he saw the shit, all this shit
That's why they call him hov', cause he came before all this shit
Bought a 6, quarter seven, skipped on them quarter eights
Bought a 9 for non-stop glock work all the time
Woo! guess who's back?
Since this is a new era, got a fresh new hat
Ten year veteran, I've been set
I've been through with this bullshit game but I never quit
I used to think rapping at 38 was ill
But last year alone I grossed 38 mill'
I know I ain't quite 38 but still
The flow so (special) got a (38) feel
The real is back, hehehehe
