  • Joe Budden - Who? Pt. 1

    I'm sure there's mistakes.. I just went through the song once and tried the best I could.... but shit's ill.... JOEY!

    Can anybody pinpoint the day it went wrong?
    I mean, I used to blame Reggaeton
    I can't front, I thought all that was corny
    Or was it Ja's fault
    Lil Mo said she aint get paid for "Put It On Me"
    Look, bring it up and dudes get on some coy shit
    (OR) was it T-Pain with that funny voice shit?
    (OR) was it Lil Wayne with that funny voice shit?
    -The whole game dick-rode that funny voice shit-
    I can't tell when it happened
    Was it when Lil Jon showed dudes you could sell without rappin?
    Was it "Laffy Taffy"?, I thought they was kiddin
    Shawty Lo said "Dey Know", I really didn't
    Dancin became cool again, then came "Walk It Out"
    But I aint know what the fuck nigga was talkin bout
    Unit kicked Game out, they aint give a fuck
    Then we seen the same shit happen to Buck
    It was a few years ago, but I remember the summer
    50 made fans start lookin at the numbers
    A&R's wont take risks, they won't sign niggas
    The word 'swag' came out, started to blind niggas
    Rap dudes want reality shows
    Then my dumb ass thinkin that reality sold
    Did it start with the iPod?
    Or when rappers had to pay DJs for them to do their job?
    I mean, all the content is the same, it won't differ
    Everybody sold some drugs or pulled triggers
    The more you think about it, you gon just get sicker
    And why the fuck would Nas wanna call his shit "Nigger"?
    Nigga! Was it when the Wu broke up?
    Pac, BIG, Pun went to sleep, never woke up
    Lupe was doin a tribute, and choked up
    But some of these stupid ass fans is like "So what??"
    Some of them, they aint educated
    And fuck blamin the south, we aint segregated
    I mean, it was all good around the 'Kiss and Beans shit
    Took a left turn around the 'Kiss and Green shit
    Maybe it all started when Rocafella parted, ways
    (Is it) natural to shift toward fame?
    I watched every last one of dudes shit on Dame
    Kinda got that in common, I can dig that pain
    When they gave Jay a desk and suit
    It finally gave a rapper a chance to come and execute
    But somethin told me the suits at the tables was hurtin
    They fired everybody, labels started mergin
    Far as sales, they're declinin strong
    Ask the experts, they'll say that the climates wrong
    I mean, some niggas prime's is gone
    I peeped it when niggas started puttin fake diamonds on
    You could tell a dude "I spit better than you"
    But then he'll say "I'm richer for whatever I do"
    I seen all this comin, I knew what we was in fo'
    Back when Erick Sermon had jumped out of the window
    Was it when Ma$e retired? He couldn't hack it
    TIP could, he just needed some more ratchets
    DJs/producers wants to get us the farthest
    Said "fuck rappers" and they became the artists
    I gotta talk candid
    Did we start havin issues around the same time Jimmy and Cam did?
    Was it when Chingy thought he aint need Ludacris?
    His next album, found out that that was ludicrous
    Papoose and Clipse both survived
    Inkin' with Jive, then gettin jived
    The man J-Hood repped that D-Block gang
    Then I seen dude draggin his D-Block chain
    Or did one-hit-wonders change it all along?
    They made labels only wanna sign a dude's song
    And you really don't know shit
    If you think the fans pick the videos on 106
    I'm just statin the truth
    Did it start when Fox stayed in the news more than she did the booth?
    Or was it when Lil Kim stopped exploitin sex?
    The fuck is up with DMX? I hope dude's straight
    Have an opinion, and they gon' say you hate
    I can't front, I'm missin the old Clue tapes
    The underground sunk further
    The feds was on Irv so The Inc. dropped 'Murder'
    I'd never blame Fab, Jeezy, Rick Ross (nah)
    Did shit get lost when Shyne went up north? (nah)
    I'll never understand the hip-hop police
    When hip-hop is what hip-hop needs to police
    These blatent-ass radio attempts sound so bland
    Twista kept tryna to recreate "Slow Jamz"
    Did we send the wrong message with our slang?
    There's broke niggas blowin their rent to 'make it rain'
    So you walk in, give a bitch a few twenties
    And she'll smirk her face up lookin at YOU funny
    This chick told me she only take new money
    I snatched my shit back so fast!
    Or did it start when rappers said "fuck it"?
    Sacrificed the music, started raping their budget
    Nothin wrong with dudes bein candy or pop
    Somethin was wrong when Joc hit the 'candy shop'
    We buyin our own records, maybe no ones to blame
    Or we a business that we can't afford to maintain
    The second week show that boy's numbers aint high
    I hate to break it to you, numbers always lie
    Or when Ortiz signed to Aftermath
    And now he's feelin the aftermath
    Was it Fight Klub fuckin with them battle raps?
    But not too many of them gettin signed after that
    I mean, some can't stay afloat
    A million Busta albums, he still not mentioned with the G.O.A.T.
    Fuck lookin for answers, time'll tell
    Was it when Def Jam didn't wanna resign L?
    I mean, a 15-year-old told me Kass was ass
    But rather than spaz, all a dude could do was laugh
    Or was it when the whole East Coast fell off?
    Or got comfortable, maybe dudes was too well-off
    The more niggas said that they aint write down lyrics
    The more it started to sound like they didn't
    But, do whatever you can to keep the lights on
    But 'dumbin down' just became the new Dylan
    Honestly, I aint know what to think
    A few years ago, we had the young kids wearing pink
    I can't blame the fans for not knowin a damn thing
    When we trained 'em to be this way
    I mean, showed 'em whatever to sell with no limits
    Since the early 90s sold 'em a false image
    So when some shit come that don't fit the mold
    It's like a mode, nigga you won't even do gold
    They watch the videos
    See you on the corner with a whole bunch of people and think that you hood
    They turn on the TV
    See these video bitches, and they think niggas' girls really look that good
    I mean, they get so many free verses
    When the album drops, shits more like a bonus
    Why pay for it, why take on this?
    With one click of a mouse, they could own this

    Another long ass verse by Budden. Dude is like Crooked I, but Crooked uses his energy in making a lot of tracks. Both of them have bars for days in their own way.
