Hello and thanks in advance for your answers. I like this song a lot, but it seems that the only available lyrics are for the original Bob Marley song. I would like you to help me get this lyrics for the rap verse on the remix from the "Chant Down Babylon" remix album.

Although I speak English, it is not my primary language and that´s why I cannot figure it out myself. this is the link: Guiltiness - Bob Marley ft Mr Cheeks and Lost Boyz

I'm not 100% on these lyrics, but I think they're reasonably accurate. I have a couple of gaps marked with [???]. Note: The use of "they" instead of "their" is not a mistake, it's a common substitution in black American speech.

If you are a fan of the Lost Boyz, you might enjoy their biggest hit, Renee.

What you say, what we do?

We got these politicians coming through
with they crooked missions
nobody's hearing
plus we living in the worst conditions

a generation hooked on welfare
nobody cares
we representing drugs and violence
a shot, it clears
a street out
we got some parties
bringing heat out
I'm trying to get my life on layback
I kick my feet out

no doubt, sacrifice,
I need to feed my kids and wife
there's many things that we neglect
like we forgot to respect life, yo!

Yo, hey yo,
I represent this for those of us caught up in the struggle
to single moms who got their kids and plus a job to juggle
for those that listen grab ya pen and get ya note on
and read these politicians [???] to get they vote on

the world is spinnin'
Praise the Lord, it's still spinnin'
[???]
that's what we learnt in the beginnin'

you keep blowing up when somebody needs you
but never bite the hand that feeds you

~~ Answer removed ~~ question was about the raps not the Bob Marley lyric, which is available in a lot of places, for example

Here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSSyPqhrK1Q

BTW, "Guiltiness" is from Bob Marley and the Wailers "Exodus" album https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exodus_(Bob_Marley_%26_the_Wailers_album)#Track_listing

  • Thanks for your response, but that is not the version I am looking for. Check the link in the question. Is kind of the same song, but I want to know what they are saying outside the riffs. – Puma Jun 6 '16 at 23:22
  • ah ok, you want the lyrics of the raps by MC Cheeks/Lost Boyz, not of the Bob Marley song they are mixed with ? Harder question... – Angst Jun 7 '16 at 18:02
  • Yes, that´s exactly what I am looking for, but can´t find them anywhere, it seems that no one paid attention to that song before ha ha ha... Anyway, thanks for your answer! – Puma Jun 7 '16 at 23:01
