The Beast-Talib Kweli feat. Papoose

Dave this a monster…

(Hook)- Talib Kweli
When the boys with the tech's throwin up they sets
And the spot so hot the ceiling starts to sweat
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…
And when you just a lil tipsy
And you lookin at them lips
And you likin them hips
Get ta drillin with them tips and
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…

Papoose:
Knowledge is the founder of everything in existance
If you not droppin knowledge
Abolished because you ignorant
A top-notched scholar with honors, I'm so gifted
Live as the most vicious
Honest and prolific
I drop diabolical product with no gimick
Astonished the flo critics
Rhymed with the most lyrics
I paint picture jot it and dot it
But won't print it
My project is photogenic
I am the most vivid
Man I got a brain the size of the most biggest
Wide as them cold rivers, wise as those old niggas
Tired of this dope,
How could you rhyme it but don't live it
Watch it and go spit it
Stop it I know physics
Breaking yo physical
Demolishing yo spirit
The struggle got me thinkin' demonic is so wicked
Man I'm so deep, I'm bottomless
Yo kill it
Wise with the flo, rhymin' behind 'em is so senseless..

(Hook)
When the boys with the tech's throwin up they sets
And the spot so hot the ceiling starts to sweat
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…
And when you just a lil tipsy
And you lookin' at them lips
And you likin' them hips
Get ta drillin' with them tips and
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…Yo!

Talib Kweli:
Live New York raps
Stay away from the pork wrap
Actin' like you all that
Get smacked if you talk back
Spiritual like Rakim, I'm nice like Kane with the females
Slick Rick, Biggie Smalls attention to detail
Political like P.E. and spittin' fire like Ice Cube
Kweli a nice dude till you start fucking wit my food
Rappers set the right mood
Front to blow like a light fuse
You might lose your chance to witness slimmer than a size 2
Plus this shit you kick so wack niggaz ready to fight you
Fuck rap, you better off with spoken word
Kick a haiku
My rhymes got teeth that'll bite you
I'll make it clear to them white foos
You ain't special
There's a million rappers like you
Far from clumsy, but I drop lines and spill bars
With more trees to be around then black chicks and Bill Maur
Peel a card off the deck
That's that real hard hittin' power shit niggas feel y'all
It's real y'all

When the boys with the tech's throwin up they sets
And the spot so hot the ceiling starts to sweat
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…
And when you just a lil tipsy
And you lookin' at them lips
And you likin' them hips
Get ta drillin' with them tips and
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…

Talib Kweli:
The beast is out when the police is out
They be pullin out and really showin you what peace about
Upholdin the law that's designed to keep my people down
Boojee niggaz walking around
Like everything is equal now
I peep at how from the beat cop ta the interstate trooper ta da feds
Who put a price ta the side a head a cuba
Be protecting property value over the people life
Ta take action against the foul government is the people right
But not too many ready to fight
It's like they rather be at home watching a flick or a fight
Or maybe Nick at Night
It's sick how I'm addicted to mics
Become a flickering light after a spark I'm always ready to write
Where I'm from they be watching us but we be watching them
And bust shots til the coppers bring the choppers in
It's why I cross and try to box me in
But I got knowledge of self that's stronger than any cage you can lock me in

When the boys with the tech's throwin up they sets
And the spot so hot the ceiling starts to sweat
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…
And when you just a lil tipsy
And you lookin' at them lips
And you likin' them hips
Get ta drillin' with them tips and
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the beast come out
That's when the…

Talib Kweli:
Lie to the beast, the demons roaming the planet and they surface at any given time. You never know when they can surface and come right up outta you. No matter how righteous you think you are, the situation can go down and force to let the beast out …
