"Shade Business" lyrics - PMD

"Shade Business"
(Parrish Smith)

"Niggas look shady"

It's nine-four, P's back in the door
Representin - hardcore, steppin through with the Squad tour
Mad brothers, know the lingo
And funky b-boy niggas, they thumpin the single
From L.A. to Detroit, to Chi-Town
New York to Philly (New Jersey) all around
'Cause it's strictly underground when I'm troopin with my sound
So save the temptation, money keep the limos
'Cause that's not hip-hop, that's a fashion show
"How low can you go?" I'll tell you
Pop done distanced and mad niggas goin' solo
Stop the press what is this? It's not rap kid
Bust it it's Shade Business

[Chorus: PMD and DJ Scratch doing samples (some unidentified)]
"People round town talkin this and that.."
[PMD] Shade Business
"People round town talkin this and that.."
[PMD] Shade Business
"People round town talkin this and that.."
[PMD] Shade Business
"People round town talkin this and that.."

So stop the press, no contest, no stress buddha sess
Yeah still snappin necks for some live effects
So where you comin from? The Boondocks, where my tune knocks
Pass the tinnocks to bust they loads like nine Glocks
Yeah so what you sayin', hops?
Niggas flock from blocks when I'm blowin up the spot
Nuff props to the moms and pops
At the one stop (what?) the violence, and racism
Black on black crime 'cause we're killin' our brothers and sisters
Over a tit for tat, he took this, she took that
Seems like you're guilty - until proven innocent with no facts
Some find this hard to comprehend this
It's far from equality - swing it P, it's Shade Business

Enough with all the 'he say she say' and nosy neighbors
You wanna do me a favor? Don't do me no favors
'Cause nowadays "Niggas look shady"
Fightin' over the money and power, but can't take it to the grave see
I guess not -
- and that's called ignorance and it's ruinin' hip-hop
So brothers wanna mess around - we mess around
And if brothers wanna "get down, get down" then we get down
'Cause PMD's bringin it, swingin it
I hear my people callin me, and my fans singin it
Big up to Michael Jackson, and Michael Jordan
Iron Mike Tyson, 2Pac Shakur an'
Flavor Flav, can't forget Snoop troop
I'm outtie ghost, Swayze like the zoo
Shade Business
