THE 2 LIVE CREW - Boyz With Da Bass

rate me

[Intro mysterious music:]

"Absolutely no one under 17 will be admitted without parent or certified adult guardian."

"They'll fry your brain. They're sick as hell!"

"Jolly good fun."

"You'll die dancin'!"

"Dark, gliding shapes that glide every long inch ... "

"Buy 'em or die a thousand deaths!"



2 Live Crew

Boys with the bass!

"You better know it!"

[Verse 1: Fresh Kid Ice]

That's right y'all, you heard it 'cause we said it

And if you can't read in the magazines,

You read about who? You know the Crew!

Fresh outta Pac

And the first to put the bass on the 24-track

Some said it wouldn't work, some said it wouldn't last

In New York, they say that the tempo's too fast

You disregarded, but the albums got charted

We put 'em in the stores and millions habe bought it

An underground sound, not liked by radio

You hear it in the cars and at the dicso

On the airwaves, we misbehave

We're too bold, too rugged in our nasty ways

From dirty minds come dirty rhymes

We're not gonna beg for your time

You don't play it? That's cool with me

But somehow, our bass still reaches the street

As long as we got it, you can get it

People want the bass, so some try to steal it

From behind our back, and not in our face

'Cause 2 Live is the Crew, the boys with the bass!


[Verse 2: Brother Marquis]

Holdin' out own in the South-East region

When you come to the bottom, pledge to our allegiance

I'm glad to say that we're the proud owners,

The rock-and-rollers, you can't us this over

The name of the game is supply and demand

We supply the bass while you demand our jams

We could not wait to bring our bass to you

Because in this game, you lag, you lose

See, we serve our bass raw, straight up and not false

This is the kind you dance to, and not on 8-Ball

Plenty of bass, the beat, and the rhyme

That my homeboy Mr. Mixx carefully designed

Hittin' hard as hell, and always droppin'

Bass is the reason why you are rockin'

When you hear our songs, and you see our face

Put two and two together; we're the boys with the bass!


("It's the best in this city!")
