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 »

I ain't seen shit
I ain't heard nathan, I dont know what happen
I dont speak pig latin
I am a motherfucking true when its us against you
So f*ck Starsky, Hutch and Inspector Clouseau
I was taught don't rely on pigs for protection
Shit I dont even ask em for directions
You're in the wrong section of the hood for a crime to be inspected
Got this block infected
You could get ejected, expect it
Ain't no love if you the fuzz
I mean the fizz, I mean my daddy told me who you was
I mean the wiz I mean
You can't win
Ease on down the road we got a "don't talk to cops code"
I won't fold working for the man with the electric chair
That's why I never watched Baretta and I hated Huggie Bear
Even Scooby Doo snitched with that hippy ass van
But me I know the scoop I know the plan
Ask me no questions I tell you no lies
You know the deal the real criminals we dressed in suit and ties
Who holds the wealth you do more damage than help
So for me and my folks we gonna just do for self

I don't know shit about those stolen goods
You want peace motherfucker raise up out tha hood
I think you should, no is all I'm gonna say
To get that '411' you better go ask Mary J
Eroc do not play when there's pigs in town, clown
Tryna be Encyclopedia Brown
That's when he frown asking who selling herb
I got disturbed fool I'm not your mocking bird
The only words coming out of my mouth is a lyrical thang
So please back tha f*ck up off my screen tho
Since I was four you was known to be the enemy
Like Rin Tin Tin you only give a shit for me
The community took four steps higher
86ing motherfuckas working for the suppliers
So sayonara before you catch a cap in your ass
No more questions in here so don't ask

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

Well all the tattletalers and undercover dwellers
They are here to be placed into helicopter propellers
And the narcotic snatched up by the seat of his pants
His face was driven into a hill of army ants
The man had the murder for his Benz and his face
I never saw the assailant he vanished through the mists
"You know the faces and names all your stories are polluted
Tell me the truth before I have you electrocuted"
Attempting on my person wouldn't be the wise thing
In your thoughts you have fear of my peoples uprisings
The masses rebel your aircraft propels
A cop was shot seven rounds were expelled
His friend went to hell just for being a fascist
Burned uniforms and piles of human ashes
"Your making this difficult so for being a bastard
I'll have you charged for murderer and resisting arrest"
I never did resist, you're telling false myths
Shes swung with the sticks so I made a spinal column twist
Twist one came with a body blow to osaygefo
And he struck my abdominals and fractured his hand
Rebels away through the twigs blasted their wigs
And there you will find a red ocean of pigs
Stay away from my zone
Where it starts and it ends
That's how we murder policemen upon planet 10

Step up in this 8 by 10
I'm getting nervous you feel me point blank
Yo I feel the coppers came to serve us
But now here he comes
Stepping through the fucking door
And we don't know who smoked that motherfucking cop at the liquor store
But now you creep through the hood looking for a clue
But your bob head twice with the point blank crew
Running up my bumper for late registration
Taking me to that station for interrogation
And I guess I'm just supposed to just let my tongue run
Asking me shit that would get my mother hung
But where I'm from up in my hood that shit won't last
If a brother's caught snithing, then that would be his ass
But now you wanna creep up on me and threaten me with time
While you got the billy club pointed at my spine
With things nowadays ain't the same like they used to be
Doing time for contempt ain't new to me
I never feared going down with my whole damn crew
Only thing that I fear is ever fucking with you
Well I too took a beating from the boys in blue
And all cops watched like a Pay Per View
And unless you're referring to this incident
We dont know nothing and we ain't seen shit
(Get it)

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood

You want peace motherfucka
Raise up out of the hood
