Gang Starr – Riot Akt lyrics
{*Dj Premier scratches children laughing and yelling*}
[Chorus: Guru]
Riot act, this is where we really prepare
Riot act, out here we show no fear
Riot act, time to protect our communities
Riot act, real criminals get immunity
Riot act, eye for an eye - so yo who want it?
Riot act, rushin all you cowards who fronted
Riot act, let's bring the power to the people
Riot act, no justice then we gotta come see you
[Verse One: Guru]
Just like a thunderous gun clap, you wonder who done that
Put you under with one rap, me and the brothers have come back
We'll lash you for tryin that, we know you been lyin cat
So now you be lyin flat, we'll read you the riot act
Whassup you little fuck, get your life right
Cause there's too much goin in the world, and shit ain't quite right
See you're just addin to the problem
Young gun, high-strung, ready to trey-eight revolve 'em
Knot nearly in your waist, you step up in the place
Catch one off guard, he lookin silly in the face
But hear they come with the M-16's
They got teargas, helmets and clubs - knahmean?
It's martial law in these streets
It's like Afghanistan man, it's gettin raw in the streets
Still you demand your rights, I understand your plight
But do the knowledge if you plan to fight
[Verse Two: Guru]
So realize what it is to be oppressed and afflicted
Subjected to sick shit, knowin others live different
Fuck that, the streets about to blow again
They forgot, so we gotta let 'em know again
Huh, we'll blast you for tryin that, we know you been lyin cat

So now you be lyin flat, we'll read you the riot act
Soldiers, let's show these cowards what's up
The hood a
