lyrics

It’s the fever, it’s like we infected with rage
look crazed every time we go and step on the stage
and you cant be saved and we cant protect you
get away if you stay we’ll infect you too


It was 1985 when I first got bit
and it was done so subtle I ain’t even feel shit
when beats start bumpin’, my knee starts jumpin’
my head starts noddin’, I know I got a problem
maybe this is airborne I don’t know I’m unsure
all I know I got something they don’t have a cure for
so many layers to this shit it’s complex
so watch ya bul Side break down the effects
first things first this lifestyle is dangerous
ain’t too many people out there that’s really made for this
y’all must not know or either underestimate
the power of this music and the energy it generates
I seen fans get buck throwin’ bows
then seen them same fans get trampled at shows
wires short circuit, then speakers blew out
5-0 came in, said fuck it, move out
change they minds, I seen cats change they rhymes
just so they ass won’t get outshined
online wack rappers put music out easily
unreleased albums get downloaded illegally
records get sampled and used without permission
the illest mc’s rarely get recognition
A&R’s get stomped out every second
pussy play my record, DJ’s get threatened
I seen gays and women get disrespected
the same time a Black president got elected
this hip hop thang got so much power
diss records get exchanged in a matter of hours
fashions switch soon as somebody fly rock it
Pass da Courvoiseur, stock skyrocket
viral marketing, clever product placement
multi-platinum records get recorded in a basement
independent labels, bypass the majors
fuck your percentage, you’ll get yours later
it’s becoming the normal situation
cats become millionaires with no formal education
they make it rain on strippers with they cheddar
I seen’em go broke cause they thought it last forever
always seeing rappers get caught up
babies out of wedlock, rape charges brought up
it’s rebel music roadblocks get ran through
on the run, make it stop, we don’t have a plan to
gun charge, rapper caught wit a foe pound
fires get started, scaffolds get tore down
that might of worked in other cities don’t try it here
the cop said that then broke out the riot gear
it’s the fever, fly sneakers and name brands
game plans where millions of dollars exchange hands
as quick as you upload it they download it
obviously, laws can’t keep up with the technology
every one’s a producer or a rapper
fans got they camera phones out ready to capture
you doing something you ain’t got no business doing
found out you on the down low now your whole career ruined
rappers go to jail and they record sales go up
street cred through the roof come home and blow up
shoot somebody, get shot it’s whatever
who the best rapper debates go on forever
at the nightclub last week they just opened
threw on Ante Up now they having a grand closing
cause muphupkas don’t know how to act
its deeper than hip hop its deeper than rap
media look at us and turn they nose up
but we ain’t have no say in this, this life chose us


It’s the fever, it’s like we infected with rage
look crazed every time we go and step on the stage
and you cant be saved and we cant protect you
get away if you stay we’ll infect you too
It’s the fever, it’s like we infected with rage
look crazed every time we go and step on the stage
and you cant be saved and we cant protect you
get away if you stay we’ll infect you too
