Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Yo Black
What's up Street?
Soup's ready
Sure it's ready?

I know it's ready
Is the soup hot?
Too hot
Burnin' hot?

Crazy hot
What's in the soup?
All the ingredients
Talkin' bout the kind of soup Mama would make?

I'm talkin' bout the kind of soup Mama would make for the projects,
You know what I'm sayin'?
Well let's show them what this soup is about
I think they're ready for it. I think it's time. I think it's time to

Them how we roll
'Cause we got control
Control of ourselves and such peueurs

So we gotta get the cash
Gotta get the dough
But I want the plantinum, I want the multiple

(Blackstreet is in control)
But we gotta give the people what they want
Oh we gonna give it to them, they deserve it, you know what I'm

Yeah, yeah no doubt
Blackstreet is in control

Anyone in my community will tell you that I am genuine and authentic

Word is born, faking moves never been my thing
I never pretend or fake anything
