"What's.. what's.." 

"What's going on? What's going on?" (4X) 



[Canibus] 

The club scene is a regular hangout spot for unclean 

women in tight jeans frontin like queens 

Chickenheads who should be home takin care of their eggs 

Instead  they always in the club flirtin with men 

No I don't care about no hype no holic bitches; all I'm concerned with 

is who's bringin they burners in to burn niggaz 

While security practice is mediocre proportions 

Niggaz is still stealthily sneakin they firearms in 

Often, niggaz be acting like they're marksmen 

but couldn't hit a stationary object 

So how you gonna hit a movin target? Especially if you alcoholic 

The party was coconuts until you spoiled it 

Nigga what's goin on? 



Chorus: Canibus + samples 



"What's going on? What's going on?" 

[Can] What's goin on these days? 

[Can] Can't do no hip-hop shows without the gunplay 

"What's going on? What's going on?" 

[Can] What's goin on? Why is everybody packin? 

"While you rappin, I'm busy tryin to sneak the gat in" -> Havoc 

"What's going on? What's going on?" 

[Can] What's goin on these days? 

Can't do no hip-hop shows without the gunplay 

"What's going on? What's going on?" 

[Can] Before you blaze, think about the lives at stake 

"You got a gun up in your waist, please don't shoot up the place" -> Biggie 



[Canibus] 

Aiyyo 

The other night I seen some kid gettin loud, runnin his mouth 

Til somebody pulled the thang-thang out, then shots rang out 

This nigga in front of me got his back blown out 

On the floor with a piece of his small intestines hangin out 

I had to scream on the bouncers to carry him out 

They said, "Nah, them niggaz is still bustin in the crowd" 

Then they ducked down close to the ground as the bullets whizzed by 

Prayin to Allah cause they don't want to die 

But neither do I, f*ck it, I gotta be here 

As a rap artist, it's a vital part of my career 

I swear, y'all niggaz need to chill with that 

Bringing your handguns to every God damn club I perform at 

Everything from semi-autos to macs 

Chrome or black, plastic gats and all that 

Believe it or not - the government wants that 

So they can use that as an excuse to shut down rap 

What's goin on? 



Chorus 



[Canibus] 

Yo 

All of my hip-hop niggaz should feel what I'm speakin upon 

A subject that was touched by Nas and Pharoahe Monch 

Bullets - bein shot from guns, guns bein carried by thugs 

who come to the clubs to shed blood 

Bear in mind, that everytime a nigga reaches for chrome 

he jeopardizes more lives than his own 

To some this record ain't even relevant until you experience 

how a bullet can shatter your dreams in a millisec' 

By some thug cats who didn't take that 

by bustin a gat, they could render somebody handicapped 

and trapped, in a wheelchair over nothin 

With the gift of walkin and runnin snatched from them 

What the f*ck is goin on? 



Chorus 2X (to fade)
