Phife Dawg – Ventilation lyrics


Say you wanna be a fly emcee (Uh-huh)

But can you really fuck with Phife Diggy (Hell no)

You claim about how you get much bank

But Money can you fuck with Mutt Ranks

I be the emcee with the illest styles

Cause on the microphone I get buckwild

Haha! Yeah, fuck that

Bassline, yo hit me

[Verse One]

Check it, I'm shittin' on rappers this year

Who the fuck claims they want some of this here (I dunno)

Go ahead, show your face, shall I crush your shit now

Say a smidgeon of a word and I bust your shit down

How dare you stand in my face with that old nonsense

Toys 'r' Us lyrics, yo fuck that [?] concept

I back-smack niggas that claim to be the hardest

Say the word battle and I'll gladly do the honors

Now for the past, I guess you heard me on some wild shit

Never had a chance to do some wild out shit

B& S and folks I know were on some bitch-like shit

So debt to label, on top of that, shady cats is the management

I made a vow, no more gettin' penetrated

Fuck that old happy shit, peep the style that's demonstrated

Right here nigga, let's just be real nigga

I know cats be actin' funny, you can go figure

What the fuck, you thought the Diggy was a pussy nigga

Or better yet (What!) I ain't have it in me nigga

Man please, I wax emcees of all types and variations

While you jerk artists and put out bogus compilations

When shit hit the fan, niggas go on vacation

Or wanna join the Nation " Phifey why's you hatin'" - Q-Tip

Yo fuck the clowns Frank, yo peep the bullshit they makin'

They fakin', look at all the talent they wastin'

Now every artist on the roster, you know they straight fuckin' prankin'

No more of that will Phife be takin', it's money time!

Like Heather B I'm takin' mine, and that's my word

I'm more anxious than Ginuwine, I straight get on some

M. O. P meanin' blast a nine, Once again for two-thou

Mutty ain't refined, while two of our fakers from beyond

The motherfuckin' sign, and to whom it may concern

Kiss my never-mind, you couldn't hear the first time?

Well nigga press rewind, the fuck y'all thought?

Diggy Dawg wouldn't get his shine, yo let me find out they corny

You know that ass is mine, and if you'd like to see me

I ain't too hard to find, just e-mail me at

(Three W dot kiss my behind and suck my

Testes dot com) And I'll gladly show you maggots

Why you laid the bomb, it's true Phife, yo fuck that

Money I'm just gettin' warm, to whom it may concern fuck that!

It's on! Uh uh it's on! Uh uh

It's on! It's on! Uh uh it's on!

[Chorus 2x]

It's ventilation! I gotta air some things out

I know a few understand what I'm talkin' about

Hold that! Take that with you! Take that with you! Hold that!

Hold that! Take that with you! Take that with you! Hold that!

[Verse Two]

Phife Diggy got these rappers feelin' uneasy

Physically and mentally they say they wanna emcee, but it ain't meant to be

I discredit all jerks, full force

'Til they discover who's the man, which leads me to this next discourse

I'm so disquited with hiphop, cause yo it's disgraceful

Disinfect all of you roaches, clean 'em up, Lord thank you

What we need is discipline, all of these rappers don't trifle

Sould I just join. I can't do that cause I'm a hiphop disciple

Standin' next to Bambataa, holdin' fort is how we do

Those who disrespect the culture, (What!) we seein' you

Disfigure you! (Disfigure you!) Discard you! (Discard you!)

These shiney emcees know the flavor, they get disfavored

So from now on my brethren use your discretion

Don't fuck yourself and if you do I hope your usin' protection

How many you murdered on your album, or is that just for attention?

These labels got y'all like Muppets so I'ma play Jimmy Henson

Mutt Dawg for two-thou, makin' moves like George Jetson

See every dog has his day, so this year no half-steppin'

To hear Phife Diggy on the mic, yes sir it's such a blessin'

Now get the fuck out my session, you punk bitch!

[Chorus 2x]
