Classified - Filthy Lyrics

[Intro: samples and (Classified)]
"Being a professional at our work, that is rapidly becoming a world of amateur's"
"What are your qualifications?"
"You, you, you, you got 5 (yeah), you, you, you got five, five minutes, you, you, you, you got (Uh) five minutes to preform your fake act"

[Verse 1: Classified]
Yeah, uh, you think you know me homie, you phoney rappers talk baloney, y'all so far below me
Blow me, there ain't nobody who control me, I'm in a league of my own, I'm ain't competing for no trophy
I don't need no album budget, I record and make my own beats
Hit the studio all by myself, stand on my own feet
I'm a different breed, I do this for the crowd applause, turn this hobby to a job, don't need no feature on a blog nah
I ain't a star, I'm an astroid, trying to avoid these fake girls, takin' botox and ass steriods
A bunch of people who talk behind your backside, like dissing someone on Twitter and not putting the @ sign
You scramblin' (scramblin'), career is over-easy, been-a-dick since I was an egg in my mothers ovaries, please believe me
I ain't your rappers favourite rapper, I'm my fans favourite rapper this is just the latest chapter
Shoutout to the artists working hard and undiscovered, that's my father on the guitar, I call him my motherfucker ooh
You think you know me, you don't know me, kid your way off
I'm here to restore order cause we all live in chaos, this is Filthy

[Chorus: DJ Premier, (Classified) and "samples"]
There you have it, the uncut of rap, of rap "you see me do this shit?" (yeah) "we the hottest thing ever" "who is this?" (Class! This is last man standing, this is Filthy, dirty, grimy, cruddy, feel so good but it sound so ugly, nasty, cruddy, oh so muddy, we get 'em up) "you better ask somebody"

[Verse 2: Classified]
Ayo, I spent the week in detox, but now I'm staring at my weed box, excited to get higher than the treetops, living in a cold world, and this is how I defrost, strike like a peacock in a fresh pair of reebok's, yeah, it's a thin line between magic and a bad trick, it's a matter of opinion between the wackest and the classics, so make sure whatever I make I love it, first and foremost, cause artists steal a style and move on when it's worn out
Kanye sped his samples up, everybody sped 'em up
Then the South slowed it down and everybody slowed it down
Then Drake and 40 showed them how to use a filter
How you supposed to hold the crown when you don't even own your sound, huh?
I grew up on that boom, bap, loud kick and snare, kept rocking with it even when that sound disappeared
Came into the game when white rappers weren't a cliche
But man oh man that's sure changing these days, shit is Filthy

[Chorus: DJ Premier, (Classified) and "samples"]
There you have it, the uncut of rap, of rap "you see me do this shit?" (yeah) "we the hottest thing ever" "who is this?" (Class! This is last man standing, this is Filthy, dirty, grimy, cruddy, feel so good but it sound so ugly, nasty, cruddy, oh so muddy, we get 'em up) "you better ask somebody"

[Outro: samples and (Classified)]
(yeah) you got five, you, you got five (Premo) you, you, you got five (Class, always wanted to say that), five minutes to preform your fake act, act (and then we're taking over it)

  45. Ke Vin a.k.a. Righteous

    vhs rap city recorded good times

  46. Desiree Holgersson

    Oh shit, this is good.

  47. Deep Society

    I may be the only one, but i think the new album is a fall off. I like old class better. Too much singing in the hooks. This song nice though

    Deep Society

    +Laura Diehl yes, i think an artist in his position has to sell too, even Class cant just do what he wants. He needs certain tracks that must appeal to masses. Hes living from it. I understand that and respect it, thats just how it is. Hes still doing a great job, i can enjoy him. But i will still state my opinion that its on the edge for me. greez

    luke Boyd

    +Deep Society i like melody.. if i had a voice. i'd try to sing more.. ... always gonna have substance in the rhymes though

    van Gink

    +Deep Society Same sentiment. Always got love for Class, and always out to support, but Trial and Error, Boycottin', Hitch Hikin', my favourite era. I love the throwback sound on this track.

  48. Robert Rush

    needs so many more views

  49. nicholas stevers

    can someone please lmk the song in the background at the beginning of the video

    luke Boyd

    Square.. on my last album

    Yo. Dude went ALL IN. How am I only now finding out about Classified? This is a BANGER - playing at any level below 11 is a travesty. My neighbors listen to this song with me! "I spent a week in detox / but now I'm starin' ay my weed box excited to get higher than the treetops / livin' in a cold world and this is how I defrost" *Bows down* MAD RESPECT!

    luke Boyd

    +DJ Bob E Gee TV apprecaite it

  90. tbone1337

    Just commenting here to share my love for Classified as a rapper and artist. Somehow never really got into him 10-15-20 years ago when he was already dope, but discovered him gradually later. As a 33 year old guy who have been growing up on boom bap, the golden years and what I would call the following golden _underground_ years, Classified has emerged from that period as a truly unique artist. It's like he says it, he may not be your favorite rapper's rapper, but he's damn sure a rapper of the people. Love his no-bullshit approach and relentless unadulterated authenticity; he's just honest and tells it like it is; strong or vulnerable, happy or sad. You and me, everyday Joes can relate to and understand it. And that's why he's for me rising out of and shining through a pack of other underground and, for sure, mainstream rappers, who are too concerned fitting a profile or creating a (fake) image, and therefore are not believable and become completely uninteresting. Anyway, fuck them, as well as this long message, but I take my hat off, Classified, for your love for what you do, for both your real stories and head-bop inducing beats, and for keeping at it for over 20 years now. You may not be considered a legend among the average hiphop-listener, but for me you stand out as one. When you finally one day find that enough is enough, you can look back and be proud of what you did and your contribution to culture.

  91. Josh Blair

    I love class.. but did he not learn from the last guy that slapped drake?...

  92. Pacebeats

    killed it

  93. Ninja Nek

    what the hell is this? seriously you don't know, it's a VHS

    HAHAHAH That was hilarious.

  94. Titus Phuk

    preemo made it to scotia!


    Shit son. Dope!

  96. Tommy Fresh

    Fuck it.. Hip-hop is back!
