Dilated Peoples_Work the Angles (From ‘The Platform’)

Filed under: LYRICS STUDY — Tags: — bsfilmworks @ 16:27 pm

{*DJ Revolution scratches “Dilated Peoples”*}

[Chorus: Dilated Peoples]
I work the angles sharp and precise
Dilated Peoples so you better build twice
{*”Act like ya know, not now but right now”*}
{*”Dilated Peoples..”*}

“The name is Iriscience”

I go through rivers (what?) so I don’t leave a scent
I travel both directions but leave one set of prints
It’s just a little trick, of the indigenous
Develop inner visions of what religion is
I caught the understanding and the underhanded
I plan to build my ship and man it to another planet
Under heavy surveillance, many different agents
Some are camouflaged, others are very blatant
I study weapon systems and vocal fighting forms
I’m many moves ahead, the thouhgts are highly formed
Like time times time times time is time squared
Went there, sayin “Rakaa you don’t rhyme fair”
But I never dummy lyrics and they kick it to my people
It’s about communication not a rappers ego
Messages I sneak in they seem to seep in
Mixed with alcohol and weed on the weekend
Shared among friends like various sins
One day it clicks it’s no longer dim
Time release capsules humble the headstrong
Your thoughts of takin me head on are dead wrong


{*”Evidence”*} It’s the master of Aikido
I let go, Karate confrontations
Evidence scientist in innovation
I locks on when I travels around planets
Smooth but got a rough edge like Wurlitzer pianists
Display mucho attack, receive payments for the cadence
A in this, you get fit fowl with flagrance
Free agents on the dotted line more hard to sign
Not easily impressed with gold mines and whole nines
I’m somewhere in-between never rushed and in a hurry
And when I swing my bat I don’t think I’ll miss like baseball
Fury the jury’s hung, from verdict and got no chance
Dilated comes first the rest are second like Stu Lance
Oh yes it gets better everyday
The A-1, is my mind on vintage display?
Unattended in this case
(The Ace two steps ahead)
Everyday is Mayday and best friends are Feds
But I know this that’s why they closest
In a crisis situation you negotiate first
I’m perfectly focused
Strategic and in a zone
It was radar detected but my speed was unknown
Anonymity, that’s my key to survival
Ev is not for Evidence it’s for Ev dense on trial
Just remember in this game it takes two to tango
Don’t go to them let them come to you
And work the angles

Dilated Peoples f/ Kanye West ‘This Way’

Filed under: LYRICS STUDY — Tags: , — bsfilmworks @ 22:39 pm

[Kanye West] + (Choir)
Now turn it up, turn it up (a little louder)
turn it uuuuup, turn it up (little louder)
now turn it up (can’t live my, I, I can’t live my)
(I can’t live my, I, I can’t live)
now turn it up, turn it up

I, I can’t live my, can’t live my
yeah, yo I can’t live my I, I can’t live my
life this way, continuouly get high
instead of runnin ’round, lock one bird down
it’s a new day gotta do it big just to get right
show no respect can’t live that way
you hold my check can’t live that way
without my chick on deck, can’t live that way
they say what they like, but I’ve been that way
Our moves calculated through the lens, almost here
success will be the best revenge
man, from Clint East’ to Kanye West (whut up, whut up!)
the sun can’t chill but everyday it sets (everyday!)

[Chorus - Male Choir] + (Female Choir)
this time I made up my mind
this time I’m back on my prime
I know there’s thing in my life
that I’ma let go startin tonight
(I can’t live my, I, I can’t live my)
(I can’t live my, I, I can’t live my)
I can’t live my, I, I can’t live my
I can’t live my life this way (can’t live my, I, I can’t live my)
this way (I can’t live my, I, I can’t live my)
this way, I can’t live my, I, I can’t live my
I can’t live my life this way

[Kanye West]
Kanye Chedda
My favorite girl wanna leave me just because I got a girlfriend
my freak girl told me “now, she a christian”
my white girl wanna move back to Michigan
I’m pullin girls off the bench like a sixth man
I’m in the club doin the same ol’ two step
while Omegas doin the same ol’ “Q” step
I have my money on my mind I was thinkin green
she a pledge A.K.A. “she was pink and green”
I wanna a good girl she want a gentleman
we sayin’ the same thing like a synonym
I wasn’t really spittin game I was scrimaging
my penmanship’s so hard it needs censorship
I’ma Chicagoan till Chicago ends
till we blow like Chicago wind
I don’t know what’s better, gettin laid or gettin paid
I just know when I’m gettin one, the other’s gettin away
this way


[Rakaa Iriscience]
Go ‘head! Flip a coin so the game can start
Believe I know the drama, kid name the part
I learnt before the hot flame came the spark
It’s like before the pop fame came to ‘Pac
But this industry’ll play with your life man
They playin with your rent, food, water and lights man (yeah)
That’s why Rakaa brings it like that ol’ Toddy Tee jam
‘The Batterram’, then I’m off to Amsterdam
To rest up for strength to deal with this weight
To deal with these deals to deal with this hate
I dedicate this to Jam Master Jay
Run-D.M.C. showed me how to walk, this way


[Kanye West & Rakaa speak in Outro]
