The Coup

The Coup is a political hip hop group based in Oakland, California. It formed as a three-member group in 1990 with emcees Raymond "Boots" Riley and E-Roc along with DJ Pam the Funkstress. E-Roc left on amicable terms after the group's second album but appears on the track "Breathing Apparatus" on The Coup's third album, Steal This Album. With the release of that album in 1998, The Coup began incorporating the live instrumentation from their recordings into their live show. The Coup has, since that time, been a full band. more »

They own sweats shops, pet cops and fields of cola
Murder babies with they molars on the areola
Control the Pope, Dali Lama, Holy Rollers, and the Ayatollah
Bump this rollin' in your bucket or your new Corolla

Well, you might catch me on the scenic route, with my penis out

And for the record I ain't called it a gat

'Cept this game ain't slow, it's the creeper
If you a janitor, get a street sweeper
Ugly is even skin deeper

They made the murder scene before there was a coroner
I might a been born here but I'm a foreigner
Spillin' swigs for victims of pigs and Afeni's kid
Flip off the lid, who you pourin' fo'?
(Yo, yo, yo, yo)

You too could be a corporate green killer, bean spiller, uh
"Gangster of Love", just like Steve Miller
They wear skivvies that's made of chinchilla
Factory in Mexico, bought a spring villa

I'm from the land where the Panthers grew
You know the city and the avenue
If you the boss we'll be smabbin' through and we'll be grabbin' you
To say, "Whassup with the ra-venue?"

And if you feel it we can even try to seal it with the

Tell him it's a boom in child prostitution
When he show up at the stroll give him lead restitution
You could throw a twenty in a vat 'o hot oil
When he jump in after it watch him boil

If you can find he can swim
Put lead boots on him and do it again, you and a friend
Videotape and the party don't end

Tell that boogers be sellin' like crack
He gon' put the little baggies in his nose and suffocate like that
Put a fifty in the barrel of a gun
When he try to suck it out, a-ha, well you know this one

Don't tell 'em that we conspired
We could let him try to change a flat tire
Or we could all at once retire
