Rodney O & Joe Cooley – This Is For The Homies lyrics

Chorus 1:

Clap your hands this evening, come on

(Scratching), this is for the homies(4x)

(Rodney O)

I'm Rodney O and I'm back, on a track that's not wack

And my dj, Joe Cooley's still on top of the stack

So you can say he's like wine, he's getting better with time

And General Jeff is by my side, to support my rhymes

We clock dollars, not dimes, we rock bells and chimes

And I'm a b-boy 100%, like Moonshine

So listen up everybody cuz you should not miss

" As we go a little something like this" --> Slick Rick

Well I'm a true blue mc with plenty of pizzazz

Plantin and scratchin is Joe's favorite task

Is he the best? Well there's no need to ask

Take a look at him as he moves fast

As lightnin, and you know what's so damn frightenin?

You others are soft, and you still haven't ripened

Yet, I'm not knockin you, I'm just rockin to

A funky beat that is just cold sockin you

I'n the face, we got pounds of bass

And check it out everybody, Joe Cooley's in the place

Chorus 1

(Rodney O)

I brought the microphone, Joe Cooley brought the mixer

I drink Coca-Cola, not hardcore liquor

Cuz I'm playin it straight, the homies like the 8

" It's the power!" that makes it taste so great

I'm kickin back in the hood, this beat is kickin real good

If you was kickin it like me, you wouldn't have to ask, would

This bass reflect, the maximum effect

This jam is for the homies, and it's comin direct

Straight from the heart, and I will do my part

This groove has been groovin straight from the start

This is for the homies, and the homegirls too

Joe Cooley, tell them what you want 'em to do

Chorus 2:

Say yeah, yeah, yeah(this is for the homies)(4x)

(Rodney O)

I'm gettin straight to the point

Hold a mic, not a joint

Like the end is lit up, so it's Joe and he cuts

Newmark is is brand, all gummies get canned

" This is for the homies!" is the name of this jam

We rock it like an earthquake, we're conquerin states

Rodney O and Joe Cooley doing many tour dates

Dedicating this song, to the homies at home

This beat is on the street wherever you roam

We're household names, in the hip-hop game

So repeat after me, " Joe, scratch that thang!"

Chorus 2
