about

"Break It Down" is an anthem containing an onslaught of lyricism with the intent to destroy weak rappers and the music industry's apparent love for them.

"Break It Down" utilizes the "Glamour Sho75 (09)" beat from J Dilla's Jay Stay Paid album.

lyrics

CHORUS:
Here's how hip-hop's supposed to sound
And I refuse to let you BITCH NIGGAZ break it down
So I'ma break it down (break it down) break it down (break it down)
Break it down (break it down) break it down (break it down)
Aiyyo, here's how hip-hop's supposed to sound
And I refuse to let you BITCH NIGGAZ break it down
So I'ma break it down (break it down) break it down (break it down)
Break it down (break it down) break it down (break it down)

Uhh, yeah, let this seep inside your vertebrae
Forget the thought you'd never live to observe the day
Where hip-hop was run by fools without a word to say
Songs blowin' up cause it's all that ya heard 'em play
(Heard 'em play) I heard 'em play that bullshit so many times
Who would've thought rap could exist without any rhymes?
Or any beats, with funk from the street
Now chumps wanna speak on pop pumped out by geeks
They say it's wrong to sample now but it's okay to bite
Niggaz can barely battle but they still tryin' to fight
They say it's wrong to diss, nowadays they call it hatin'
Cause these ballers makin' guap and cakin' from the spawn of Satan
Like I'm supposed to support your music when it's garbage
Like I ain't got an argument cause rap's like a hard pitch
It's tough to make a hit - when radio wants nonsense
Unless you can accomplish not havin' a conscience
(Conscience) I'm conscious of this new generation
ho's simply a product of ingesting this infestation
I won't diss my patients, I'm a doctor with a vaccination
And if you're still confused listen to my explanation, yo!

CHORUS

Uhh, yeah, this be that real shit that bust your trunk
I live to rip over the dirtiest and roughest cuts
Do all you niggaz 'til bitches say that I'm such a slut
Dazed by the ways that I blaze y'all to fuck you up
(Fuck you up) Fuck you up to? Man, you said you was nice
It's time you get left, move as I step to the right
You only rhyme cause you thought it would get you some ice
You a sell-out like items half off their regular price
I see you ridin' now but I ain't no pedestrian
Just cause the industry's bouncers refuse to let me in
Like they some lesbians or bitches who say "Let's be friends"
Ironically you best depict somebody filled with estrogen
You on a high thinkin' that your ass is clever
You a weed in rap's garden and your buzz won't last forever
Career is up in smoke, now you're steady comin' down
And I'm a nigga with the munchies who's stomach grumbles and pounds
(Pounds) and pounds of you niggaz will get eaten
Ain't had nuttin' this sweet since your last time trick-or-treatin
Cause Top 40 hip-hop's the dumbest sound today
That's why I'm in the house and I ain't COMIN out to play, yo!

CHORUS
