    Kanye West feat. Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Jay-Z & Busta Rhymes - Get By (Remix)


    [Mos Def]
    History
    It's happening every day y'all (right now)
    Everyday (right now)
    Right now (good mornin', Vietnam!)
    Listen
    Brooklyn wins again
    It's the Stuy, it's the Bush, dem niggaz again
    Ta' Kweli, Mighty Def, and S Dot on the guest slot
    Kanye, you're the dope man in hip hop, now let's rock
    Now roll out niggaz, my hometown niggaz
    I get it good in your hood so slow down niggaz
    Watch the speed though, mind the pedal and ease off
    A street talk into a collision course with these walls - bam!
    They don't move, don't brake, don't lose, don't sleep
    Light passin', light fashion, life happens that fast, party done
    Black hands up and prayer
    Black guns up in fear
    Dyin' wish is to touch the air
    Seekin' heaven that wasn't here
    Eyes will not see another year
    It's another day
    It's the same fight
    Different round, sound the bell
    Mix it up as if you're where you live it up the beat
    And get risen up you're knocked down get back and get it up
    Get off of queer street and get with us
    And get clear where we did it
    From the heart, from the people
    From the top, from the jeep
    From the gutter, from the street
    From my soul to the mic to the essence
    So in my absence you feel the presence, exactly
    I make contact for sure the emcee
    Me and mine we don't just get by
    We get free and that's ready [Mos -- nigga]

    [Jay-Z]
    Just to get by
    Nigga I sold coke, nigga I pushed lah
    Carried a fo'five
    Claimed I was ready to die
    Promised never to cry
    Held it all inside
    Reality was too much to take so I
    Kept my mind fried
    Slept for most of mine
    Soon as I closed my eyes
    Then I woke up behind
    Thinking either I load up these nines
    Or blow up with rhymes
    cause this flow of mine is like blow up but lines of coca
    And your folks think Hov' just wrote stuff to rhyme
    Nah, I'm a poster for what happened seein your moms
    Doin five dollars worth to work just to get a dime
    So pardon my disposition
    Why should I listen to a system that never listened to me?
    Picture me working McDonald's
    I'd rather pull a mac on you
    Sorry Ms. Jackson but I'm packin

    [Kanye West]
    It's on I'm packin weight like nina simone
    Piano flow
    It's like a Michaelangelo painted a portrait of Maya Angelou
    And gave it to a sick poet for they antidote
    If music gets you choked up this is the tree and the rope
    This is Chi, nigga, I mista all of that
    Fuck a map, let's put this bitch on the almanac
    Dice what they hittin' for, 'lacs what you sittin' on
    Tracks who you spittin on, rap till we get it on
    And don't let nobody with the power to sign
    Ever tell you you ain't got the power to rhyme
    They used to tell me toughen up
    Put some bass in your voice
    They used to tell me lighten up
    Put some Mase in your voice
    Lord willin' I ain't killed nobody
    But I have a feelin' this album
    That I'm gonna make a killin'
    Or not a shillin'
    This is love it or hate it music
    But, at least we made it music
    And we didn't make it industry
    This is gon' be interesting
    This'll be the end of me or I'm finna be an entity
    Kanye, Jay-Z, Mos Def, and Kweli
    We are not makin' songs no more
    We're makin' history

    [background singers]
    This morning I woke up
    Feelin brand new, I jumped up
    Feelin my highs and my lows
    In my soul, and my goals
    Just to stop smoking and stop drinkin
    But I been thinkin I got my reasons
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)

    [background singers repeat in the background]
    bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
    bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah

    [Talib Kweli]
    Just to get by, just to get by
    Just to get by, just to get by

    [background singers]
    bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
    Bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah

    [Talib Kweli]
    Just to get by, just to get by
    Just to get by

    We keep it gangsta, saying 'fo shizzle', 'fo sheezy'
    Desensitized to the violence on TV during the war
    Killin each other is easy as whore and liquor for fallen niggaz Believe
    me, it's ghetto libations seen it all befo'
    Just to get by, my people we get fly
    My people we get high, fillin cigars with the lah
    Nigga come on, even Jesus was stoned before receivin' the throne
    I send a rest in peace to Nina Simone

    [Busta Rhymes]
    Back in the days we was used to doin the shit
    I can't call it all in the streets
    We would hustle and fiends would ask for it
    I guess I was used to just standin on corners
    Waitin for paper bags with bundles of crack
    Hopin the week was good so I could get money back
    To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
    When I was stressed I possessed a side of my strength
    That made me angry and bleed
    With the frustration havin me smokin Newports and weed
    To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
    Those be the times when I try to rely
    On my niggaz and street motherfuckers
    And reach out to wifey and then I place a call on my mother
    To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
    (Hey yo mom pick up the phone, I g- I gotta to talk to you ma)
    If you was five percent instead of actin stupid and guessin
    You had to go and study your lessons
    And know your math in the building recession to get by

    [Hook: Talib Kweli + background singers]
    This morning I woke up
    Feelin brand new, I jumped up
    Feelin my highs and my lows
    In my soul, and my goals
    Just to stop smoking and stop drinkin
    But I been thinkin I got my reasons
    Just to get (by), just to get (by)
    Just to get (by), just to get (get buh buh buh bye bye)

    [background singers repeat in the background]
    bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
    bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah

    [Talib Kweli]
    Some people cry
    Some people try just to get by
    For a piece of the pie
    You love to eat and be high
    We deceive and we lie
    And we keepin' it fly - yo yo yo yo yo
    When people decide
    Keep a disguise
    Can't see your eyes
    See the evil inside
    The best people you find
    Strong or feeble in mind
    I stay readin' the signs
    yo-yo-yo-yo yo
    [repeat]
