The People
Common Lyrics


Yeah, it's for the people

This is street ra-dio, for unsung heroes
Riding in the regal, trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

And the struggles of the brothas and the folks
With lovers under dope, experiment to discover hopes
Scuffle for notes, the rougher I wrote, times was harder
Went from rocky starter to a voice of a martyr
Why white folks focus on dogs and yoga
While people on the low end trying to ball and get over
Lyrics are like liquor for the fallen soldiers
From the bounce to the ounce, it's all our culture
Everyday we hustlin', trying get them custom rims
Law we ain't trusting them, thick broads we lust in them
Sick and tired of punching it, I look on the bus at them
When I see them struggling, I think how I'm touching them
The People

The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, you'll find

This is street ra-dio, for unsung heroes
Riding in the regal, trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

The people said that I was sharp on TV
At the Grammy's, though they tried to India.Arie me
Got back stage, and I bumped into Stevie
He said no matter what, the people gon' see me
Can't leave rap alone the streets need me
Hunger in they eyes, is what seems to feed me
Inside peace mixed with beast seem to breed me
Nobody believe, until I believe me
Now I'm on the rise doing business with my guys
Visions realize, music affected lives
A gift from the skies, to be recognized
I'm keeping my eyes on the people, that's the prize

The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, you'll find

This is street ra-dio, for unsung heroes
Riding in the regal, trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo, I found the new primo
Ye' you know how we do, we do it for the people

From Englewood to a single hood in Botswana
I see the I in We, my nigga, yours is my drama
Standing in front of the judge with no honor
My raps ignite the people like Obama
The karma of the streets is needs and takes
Sometimes we find peace in beats and breaks
Put the bang in the back so the seats can shake
Rebel Cadillac music for the people's sake
The People

The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, you'll find

Yeah, this for the people
This is street radio
For unsung hero
Riding in the regal
Trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo
I found the new primo
Yeah you know how we do
We do it for the people
And the struggle, a lot of brothers and their folks
The lovers of the dope
Experiment to discover hope
Scuffle for notes
The ruffle I wrote
Times was harder
If a rock star to the voice of a martyr
Why white folk focus on dogs and yoga
People on the low end try to ball and get ova
Lyrics are like liquor for the fallen soldier
From the bounce to the ounce, it's all our culture
Everyday we hustling
Trying to get them customers
Law, we ain't trusting them
Thick bras, we lusting them
Sick and tired of punching it
I look on the bus at them
When I see them struggling
I think I'm touching them
The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, your fine
This is street radio
For unsung hero
Riding in the regal
Trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo
I found the new primo
Yeah you know how we do
We do it for the people
The people, said that I was sharp on TV
At the Grammy's, though they trying to India.Arie me
Got back stage and I bumped into Stevie
He said no matter what, the people gonna see me
Can't leave rap alone, the streets need me
Hunger in they eyes, is what seemed to feed me
Inside peace mixed with beef, seemed to breed me
Nobody believe, until I believe me
Now I'm on the rise
Doing business with my guys
Visions realized
Music affecting lives
A gift from the skies
To be recognized
I keep my eyes on the people, that's the prize
The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, your fine
This is street radio
For unsung hero
Riding in the regal
Trying to stay legal
My daughter found Nemo
I found the new primo
Yeah you know how we do
We do it for the people
From Inglewood
To a single hood
In Botswana
I see the eye and we my nigga
Yours is my drama
Standing in front of the judge with no honor
My raps take mike to people like Obama
The karma of the street
Says needs and takes
Sometimes we find peace
In beats and breaks
Put the bang in the back so the seats can shake
Rebel Cadillac music for the people's sake
The people
The days, have come
Now we, are one
Just take, your time
And then, your fine

It’s just as overused as “role model” in the sports world.
