D.O.A.
Jay-Z Lyrics


La da da da da da
Hey hey hey goodbye (good riddens)
Hold up

Only rappers to re-write history without a pen
No I-D on the track let the story begin, begin, begin

This is anti auto-tune, death of the ring-tone
This ain't for iTunes, this ain't for sing alongs
This is Sinatra at the opera, bring a blonde
Preferably with a fat ass who can sing a song
Wrong, this ain't politically correct (arh!)
This might offend my political connects (arh!)
My raps don't have melodies
This shit make niggas wan' go and commit felonies
Get your chain tooken
I may do it myself, I'm so Brooklyn
I know we facing a recession
But the music y'all making going make it the great depression (arh!)
Or your lack aggression
Put your skirt back down, grow a set man
Nigga this shit violent
This is death of auto-tune, moment of silence

La da da da da da
Hey hey goodbye
Hold up

Only rappers to re-write history without a pen
No I-D on the track let the story begin, begin, begin

Hold up,
This ain't a number one record (arh!)
This is practically assault with a deadly weapon (arh!)
I made it just for Flex and
Mister Cee, I want niggas to feel threatened (arh!)
Stop your bloodclot crying
The kid, the dog, everybody dying, no lying
You niggas jeans too tight
You colors too bright, your voice too light (arh!) (arh!)
(It's too far nigga)
I might wear black for a year straight
I might bring back Versace shades
This ain't for z100
Ye told me to kill y'all to keep it one hundred
This is for Hot 9-7
This shit's for Clue, for Khaled, for we the best in
Nigga this shit violent
This is death of auto-tune, moment of silence

La da da da da da
Hey hey hey goodbye
Hold up

Only rappers to re-write history without a pen
No I-D on the track let the story begin, begin, begin

Hold up,
This shit need a verse from Jeezy
I might send this to the mix-tape Weezy
Get somebody from B-M-F to talk on this
Get this to a blood, let a crip walk on it (arh!)
Fifty thou' to style on this
I just don't need nobody to smile on this (arh!)
Y'all niggas singing too much
Get back to rap you t-paining too much (arh!) (arh!)
I'm a multi-millionaire
So how is it I'm still the hardest here (arh!)
I don't be in the project hallway
Talking about how I be in the project all day (arh!)
That sound stupid to me
If you a gangsta this is how you prove it to me (arh!) (arh!)
Nigga just get violent
This is death of auto-tune moment of silence

La da da da da da
Hey hey hey goodbye
Hold up

WelcomeToThe92503

Funny story..............I believe I was just turning 30... and HOV was pretty much if not number 1 on my top 5 list..he was somewhere lingering in the top 5 list.. I remember BEING SUPER HYPED ABOUT THIS SONG WHEN ALL THE BLOGS POSTED IT...and pulling up to my then girlfriend.. now wife's house ......going on about how dope it is.. and that ALL THE EMCEES WERE BACK. This that.... and asking her little brother if he heard the song .

He was around 14 or 15 at the time

He said NO.

THEN I DID SOME MATH IN MY HEAD and then asked him..."DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO JAY Z IS???" As if I was in disgust at the notion that he might possibly not be familiar with him

He then responded..."I think so"

"Aaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwww MANNNNNNNNNNNN... cmon dawg. You serious?!?!?!...hova...jay z ... YOU KNOW BIG PIMPIN...HARD KNOCK LIFE???."

he responds with a blank stare and I HAD AN EPIPHANY about how lucky I was that my evolution as a man has almost been synonymous with hip hops..and I've been around and been a fan of almost every era..except it's super infant state in the late late 70s.

This song was definitely a Moment tho. As was/is most of jays singles when they first drop

2009. What a time to be alive. I was only 14. This record hurt T-Pain and others that were riding the Auto-Tune wave. Even though Pain did it better and can actually sing.

@onlyone23km I was in 1st grade

Cake Daddy

Pain invented that

2009 we had president Obama as a matter of fact Jay-Z has connection to president Obama

T pain speaks on this on Steve-Os podcast. It’s a great episode that I’d recommend to anyone.
