Jay Electronica - The Day Lyrics

Whack niggas sleep rappin' and woke up in trouble
Whack niggas with that sleep rap and then woke up in trouble
You were cool ten years ago, you fucking lex bubble

[Verse 1: Curren$y]
Brand new tires, Rollin down the same old strip
New party same old chicks
I'm so sorry
If I don't look happy to be here
In your label office but they said I can't smoke weed here
Man fuck it I'm out black on
And I'm bout it fool
I got a studio in my house
Along with some the perks
That come with my work
Pretty twenty something sleeping in my Diamond Supply shirt
There is not a adjective to describe how I work
Hard is not enough brother I'm tougher
Whack niggas with that sleep rappin' and woke up in trouble
You was cool ten years ago you fucking lex bubbles, bubble
You gotta know when to hold em', know when to fold em'
Learn how to roll with the punches
Take em' to school give these niggas brown bag lunches
If it ain't the jets then it ain't nothing

[Hook: Yasiin Bey]
Yo the king closed his cloak the set was overfull
Such a excellent moment, so emotional
He rushed out on the field, so devoted for
Final victory clutch they went postal cold
Glory overload, hold up hold my coat
Please remember this day
This changes everything we can do anything
Until you show anyway

[Verse 2: Jay Electronica]
My momma told me, "Son, always call a spade a spade"
Be like Chuck D never be like Flavor Flav
But that clock around his neck is so fly
And the way he complimenting Chuckie with that bow tie flow
Make me feel high so I'm gon' spit it my way
Excuse me as I do me cruisin' rudely down the high way
I'm young, black, intelligent, elegant, blasé
Back to the thesis
Back to to shooting kraps and talking smack to the polices
Back to black and gold ballys
Dickes with the creases
Pulling youngins by the coattails
Schoolin' em' who the beast is
I pray this flow is dumb enough ugh
I pray my heart is DMC and Reverend Run enough
Cause I'm a throw my number up
I'm a throw some chicken bones and feathers on a hundred bucks
And summon up the thunder what?
The voodoo man is coming bruh
Can't see the forest for the trees
It's okay, I got my jigsaw and my lumber truck
Tell them boys their run is up

    Scotty McGrady

    @Javon Cox oh shit..I came back to the same video and seen my comment from my old account. real lifer here

  30. gibran paris

    just cause jay electronica raps about more intelectual topics it doesnt make him a better rapper, curren$y has dropped at least 20 mixtapes and still stays consistant that alone shows how good he is, he doesnt rap about pyramids but lyrically he can match jay electronica on top of that for every jay electronica verse theirs 20 curren$y verses, curren$y is the bret favre of this shit, dont get me wrong tho jay electronica is one of my favorite rappers but saying hes clearly better is disrespect


    gibran paris theres level to this shit currency nice but the real ones know jay on another level

  31. DdoubleDs

    still waiting for electronica to drop an album, hurry up nigga you taking long

  32. El Chungus

  34. Lupin The 3rd

    i don't fuck with jay all that much but if you're telling me this is one of his best verses then he isn't all that.

  35. JAMs

    Hey I'm a hip hop producer and love making beats like this. I'm tryna produce for Spitta one day if y'all could check out my beats that would be awesome! You won't be disappointed! Thank you and God bless!

  43. enrique mendoza

    Aerial Penn

    No mixtapes. This is on Curren$y album Pilot Talk (the first one) you can actually get all 3 together now in a bundle deal.

  44. Will Lean

    Im a throw some chicken bones and feathers on a 100 bucks, and summon up the thunder, What! The voodoo man is coming bruh.......wow, so southern

  45. HinduKush23

    Are you kidding me? I listen to Curren$y but to compare him to JAY ELECTRONICA? Jay is one of the most intellectually stimulating rappers I have ever heard and his verse on this song is one of the best he's ever spit. Spitta doesn't even stand a chance against a true lyricist like Jay Electornica

  46. Josh Knight

    Me when the bass drops after the hook -----> :D

  47. J Jizza

    9 people like Little Wayne and dont understand what real music is

    Zach Adam

    J Jizza curren$y would tell you himself wayne is better

    The Soldier

    @Zach Adam hell no spitta has better bars, while wayne mumbles in half of his songs.

  48. J Jizza

    Curren$y is the fuckin man

  49. haggel fuggui

    I love Curren$y but Jay Elec makes him look like an amateur when he drops his verse

  50. noremac387

    jay never ceases to amaze me.
