Talib Kweli – Back Up Offa Me lyrics

Yo, yo
Niggas always wanna cheak you, make sure you keepin it real niggga
I'm over here doing me, you do you, come on

[(chanting) + talib kweli]

(Back up offa me)ah high tec
(Back up offa me)why don't you get outta ma face
(Back up offa me)betta stay on your place
(Back up offa me)stand up!! Ah how much can I take you need to jus
(Back up offa me)(Back up offa me)(Back up offa me)
(Back up offa me)i got money to make not a minuite to waste
(Back up offa me)need space what I'm tryna' create you need to jus
(Back up offa me)(Back up offa me)(Back up offa me)

I know he aint talkin this, this is grown men's business
Be your own man stand on your own feet
I thought we were homies, but now you coming at me acting like you don't know me
You think you do but your proberly wrong
I'm surrounded by more babies than Ashanti's song
Aww baby!! I know you don't get it
Tryna' walk into ma shoes I know you won't fit in
Just coz I know you and your flow too
This mo too, and you wont get it, I don't owe you
You want high tec to do a record for you
So niggas do checkup for you,
Comfortable, coz niggas get respected for you
Get your own respect dude that aint mean it evil
Aint no crutches in no crew, my crew is crued equal
Shit was cool when we was teenagers we grown men,
You my people but
I don't need you moanin and groanin I can't feed you, I already gotta kid
Tell a nigga try to regulate some shit that's not his
I'm not tryna' sign I'm not an artist nigga
I'm jus tryna' rhyme and go the hardest nigga

Suckas never play me coz I don't let em
They like a pimp, on they hoe sweat em
When I do a show I love to catch a ladies eye
Thas a paperatsie's eye I don't wanna see no lady die
Sports, entertainment, academics, business and politics
Fine hoes swollow dicks, for dollas quick
Young boys brought up in gangs like young lords
Jump off stratagye way and now your done for
What you thought that shawrty about to act a rage(nope)
Right now somebody done at the back stage
Its a master's label relationship and guess who told me
Its the white girl from Colarada and guess who cobie
Try to tell you not to fall with this everytime
That's more cobie than the jappnesse musta rhyme
Don't need these thieses and tryna catch nuttin'
And when they throwing pussy best believe you catcha suttin'


Yeah man what he on back up offa me, nigga he think can talk about me, nahimsayin!! And I
Know nigga be talkin about me man, nahimsayin!! Who you think put him on!! I put him on!! Talib
!! Kwelii
That what's be his rap name or ssomething liek that!! Nigga's name was Henry Abernafy, thas what
His real name is
Henry Abernafy fitty first street. Man he gonna get that money. I gotta book of rhymes but I
Gotta book of rhymes
Nahimsyain!! Back up off me!! He need to back up off me. Look I'm serious if he come round the
Block, if he come
Back round the block in my lines of ma grocery store, I'm tellin him right now soon as I bag his
You know what I'm sayin imma take imma take it liek a like a snape a bottle
And just crack accross his forehead and I be liek yeah!! Talib!! Aka henry abernafy!! Huh!!
Back up offa me
