      Kanye West - Get By (Re-Remix) Música y Letra

      [Mos Def]
      History
      It's happening every day y'all (right now)
      Everyday (right now)
      Right now (good mornin', Vietnam!)
      Listen
      Brooklyn wins again
      It's the Stuy, it's the Bush, dem niggaz again
      Ta' Kweli, Mighty Def, and S Dot on the guest slot
      Kanye, you're the dope man in hip hop, now let's rock
      Now roll out niggaz, my hometown niggaz
      I get it good in your hood so slow down niggaz
      Watch the speed though, mind the pedal and ease off
      A street talk into a collision course with these walls - bam!
      They don't move, don't brake, don't lose, don't sleep
      Light passin', light fashion, life happens that fast, party done
      Black hands up and prayer
      Black guns up in fear
      Dyin' wish is to touch the air
      Seekin' heaven that wasn't here
      Eyes will not see another year
      It's another day
      It's the same fight
      Different round, sound the bell
      Mix it up as if you're where you live it up the beat
      And get risen up you're knocked down get back and get it up
      Get off of queer street and get with us
      And get clear where we did it
      From the heart, from the people
      From the top, from the jeep
      From the gutter, from the street
      From my soul to the mic to the essence
      So in my absence you feel the presence, exactly
      I make contact for sure the emcee
      Me and mine we don't just get by
      We get free and that's ready [Mos -- nigga]
      
      [Jay-Z]
      Just to get by
      Nigga I sold coke, nigga I pushed lah
      Carried a fo'five
      Claimed I was ready to die
      Promised never to cry
      Held it all inside
      Reality was too much to take so I
      Kept my mind fried
      Slept for most of mine
      Soon as I closed my eyes
      Then I woke up behind
      Thinking either I load up these nines
      Or blow up with rhymes
      cause this flow of mine is like blow up but lines of coca
      And your folks think Hov' just wrote stuff to rhyme
      Nah, I'm a poster for what happened seein your moms
      Doin five dollars worth to work just to get a dime
      So pardon my disposition
      Why should I listen to a system that never listened to me?
      Picture me working McDonald's
      I'd rather pull a mac on you
      Sorry Ms. Jackson but I'm packin
      
      [Kanye West]
      It's on I'm packin weight like nina simone
      Piano flow
      It's like a Michaelangelo painted a portrait of Maya Angelou
      And gave it to a sick poet for they antidote
      If music gets you choked up this is the tree and the rope
      This is shy nigga I mista all of that
      Fuck a map, let's put this bitch on the almanac
      Dice what they hittin' for, 'lax what you sittin' on
      Tracks who you spittin on, rap till we get it on
      And don't let nobody with the power to sign
      Ever tell you you ain't got the power to rhyme
      They used to tell me toughen up
      Put some bass in your voice
      They used to tell me lighten up
      Put some mase in your voice
      Lord willin' I ain't killt nobody
      But I have a feelin' this album
      That I'm gonna make a killin'
      Or not a shillin'
      This is love it or hate it music
      But, at least we made it music
      And we didn't make it industry
      This is gon' be interesting
      This'll be the end of me or I'm finna be an entity
      Kanye, Jay-Z, Mos Def, and Kweli
      We are not makin' songs no more
      We're makin' history
      
      [background singers]
      This morning I woke up
      Feelin brand new, I jumped up
      Feelin my highs and my lows
      In my soul, and my goals
      Just to stop smoking and stop drinkin
      But I been thinkin I got my reasons
      Just to get (by), just to get (by)
      Just to get (by), just to get (by)
      
      [background singers repeat in the background]
      bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
      bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah
      
      [Talib Kweli]
      Just to get by, just to get by
      Just to get by, just to get by
      
      [background singers]
      bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
      Bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah
      
      [Talib Kweli]
      Just to get by, just to get by
      Just to get by
      
      We keep it gangsta, saying 'fo shizzle', 'fo sheezy'
      Desensitized to the violence on TV during the war
      Killin each other is easy as whore and liquor for fallen niggaz Believe
      me, it's ghetto libations seen it all befo'
      Just to get by, my people we get fly
      My people we get high, fillin cigars with the lah
      Nigga come on, even Jesus was stoned before receivin' the throne
      I send a rest in peace to Nina Simone
      
      [Busta Rhymes]
      Back in the days we was used to doin the shit
      I can't call it all in the streets
      We would hustle and fiends would ask for it
      I guess I was used to just standin on corners
      Waitin for paper bags with bundles of crack
      Hopin the week was good so I could get money back
      To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
      When I was stressed I possessed a side of my strength
      That made me angry and bleed
      With the frustration havin me smokin Newports and weed
      To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
      Those be the times when I try to rely
      On my niggaz and street motherfuckers
      And reach out to wifey and then I place a call on my mother
      To get by, just to get by, just to get by, just to get by
      (Hey yo mom pick up the phone, I g- I gotta to talk to you ma)
      If you was five percent instead of actin stupid and guessin
      You had to go and study your lessons
      And know your math in the building recession to get by
      
      [Hook: Talib Kweli + background singers]
      This morning I woke up
      Feelin brand new, I jumped up
      Feelin my highs and my lows
      In my soul, and my goals
      Just to stop smoking and stop drinkin
      But I been thinkin I got my reasons
      Just to get (by), just to get (by)
      Just to get (by), just to get (get buh buh buh bye bye)
      
      [background singers repeat in the background]
      bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah dah
      bah dah bah dah, bah dah bah daaah
      
      [Talib Kweli]
      Some people cry
      Some people try just to get by
      For a piece of the pie
      You love to eat and be high
      We deceive and we lie
      And we keepin' it fly - yo yo yo yo yo
      When people decide
      Keep a disguise
      Can't see your eyes
      See the evil inside
      The best people you find
      Strong or feeble in mind
      I stay readin' the signs
      yo-yo-yo-yo yo
      [repeat]
