break/doWn - translating the hits for the masses
by: the munk
For some unknown reason, rapper 50 Cent has hit big with his revival of gangster rap. Why it's popular, we couldn't say... but check out the breakdown below to get the lyrics and find out why it's not the war in Iraq that's the signal of coming apocalypse, but rather the fact that 50 Cent is battling Norah Jones for the top of the Billboard Charts.
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go shawty
It's your birthday
We gon' party like it's yo birthday
We gon' sip Bacardi like it's your birthday
And you know we don't give a fuck
It's not your birthday!
You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I'm into having sex, I ain't into making love
So come give me a hug if you into getting rubbed
When I pull out up front, you see the Benz on dubs
When I roll 20 deep, it's 20 knives in the club
Niggas heard I fuck with Dre, now they wanna show me love
When you sell like Eminem, and the hoes they wanna fuck
But homie ain't nothing change hold down, G's up
I see Xzibit in the Cutt that nigga roll that weed up
If you watch how I move you'll mistake me for a playa or pimp
Been hit wit a few shells but I dont walk wit a limp
In the hood then the ladies saying "50 you hot"
They like me, I want them to love me like they love 'Pac
But holla in New York them niggas'll tell ya im loco
And the plan is to put the rap game in a choke hold
I'm feelin' focused man, my money on my mind
I got a mill out the deal and I'm still on the grind
Now shawty said she feeling my style, she feeling my flow
Her girlfriend wanna get bi and they ready to go
My flow, my show brought me the doe
That bought me all my fancy things
My crib, my cars, my pools, my jewels
Look nigga i done came up and i ain't change.
And you should love it, way more then you hate it
Nigga you mad? I thought that you'd be happy I made it
I'm that cat by the bar toasting to the good life
You that faggot ass nigga trying to pull me back right?
When my junk get to pumpin in the club it's on
I wink my eye at ya bitch, if she smiles she gone
If the roof on fire, let the motherfucker burn
If you talking bout money homie, I ain't concerned
I'm a tell you what Banks told me cause go 'head switch the style up
If the niggas hate then let 'em hate
Watch the money pile up
Or we go upside there wit a bottle of bub
You know where we fucking be
[Laughing] Don't try to act like you ain't know where we been either nigga
In the club all the time nigga, its about to pop off nigga
go, go, go, go
move it lil' lady
let's get down as if today was the annual celebration of the day you were born.
We are going to slowly sip a name brand alcohol as if today was the day of which you were born.
But you know what?
I really don't care if it is your birthday or not.
I f you are ever trying to locate me, I can usually be found at the local dance hall with a bottle of champagne in my hand.
Or, if you prefer something a bit stronger, I have some street grade MDMA to get you in the mood.
You see, I am much more the type of man that prefers to have open, casual sexual relations instead of being monogamous and committed to one woman.
So if you enjoy getting felt up and groped, then get your fanny over here so I can give it a squeeze.
When I arrive at the discothèque, you can see me driving a Mercedes Benz with 20 inch rims.
If I am hanging out with 19 other members of my entourage, you'd be well advised to know that everyone here is equipped with a weapon.
Some fools act like they'd like to get to know me, just because the word on the street is that I am acquaintances with the legendary Dr. Dre.
And some women have the tendency to want to engage in promiscuous activities with me because my record has been selling almost as much as Eminem's.
But let me warn you, all these women and all this money hasn't changed my perspective on the important issues in life.
Xzibit is over there rolling up a marijuana cigar.
If you take time to observe the way I walk, you might assume that I am one jive turkey.
I have been shot a few times, but I definitely don't have a limp.
All of the young ladies in the neighborhood have a tendency to tell me "oh, 50 cent, you so fine".
They find me attractive, but I want to be held in the same respect as they hold Tupac Shakur.
If you ask about me in the roughest of the five buroughs, and the locals will tell you that I am crazy.
And I am not going to stop until I make it known that I am the greatest emcee of all time.
I have great motivations-I am constantly working to make money, instead of putting my heart into music that I love.
I sold my soul to have a chance at making it big in the music industry for a million dollars. And I have at least half of my 15 minutes of fame left before the devil comes to collect.
Any way, back to all the women that think I'm sexy. There is one next to me that is always willing to have groupie sex with a rapper.
And she says that she has a girlfriend that would like to join us, thus fulfilling my stereotypical fantasy of engaging in explicit sex with 2 attractive and bisexual women.
My skills and my style are paying me big time.
They bought me all of my toys,
From my house, to my car, my swimming pools, to my jewelry.
See! Young urban men can move out of the ghetto, make a decent living, and still remember where they came from.
And you should respect me much more than you feel hatred towards me.
Why are you envious? I thought you would be happy for me.
While I'm making a toast to the good things in life,
You are trying to put me down.
When my music starts to play at the dance club, then my game is on.
And if your girlfriend shows sign of interest in me, she will be leaving the club with me tonight.
If this whole place burns up, why would I care?
And if you are talking about shaky financial situations, then I really have no interest talking with you about it.
I'll tell you what Banks told me cause go 'head switch the style up
If there is someone that doesn't like you, who cares.
Just pay attention to yourself, and watch the money roll in.
Or just do like we do and party all the time.
That's how we do it!
Don't try to pretend you don't know where are are.
We are in the club all the time! And the party's about to get crazy!
