Lupe Fiasco - Happy Timbuck2 Day Lyrics




[Timbuck2:]
Me and Lupe Fiasco, Hollywood, California
Palm trees, Hollywood lights, enjoy the show
Before we take it down
I need everybody in the building tonight right now
From front to back, left to right, to put both hands in the sky
Right now before we get to the next song
We got any hip-hop fans out there?
Where y'all at? Make some noise
Y'all ready for Lupe Fiasco?
Let me hear you make some fuckin' noise

[Lupe Fiasco:]
Say insane, insane in the brain
In the brain, I bring the pain
Yeah, I came, that's why I came
In the game to do my thang, so whatchu think?
Write my story on the wall, on the wall
On the wall, ah-all, in Hall of Fames
Got a day in the city, ooohh
Not too gangster to be dancin' in the video
Insane, insane in the brain
In the brain, I bring the pain
Yeah, I came, that's why I came
In the game to do my thang, so whatchu think?

See when loves comes from the center, I'm Mutombo to my members
I heard you heard that I was fly so I'm Dumbo to my listeners
Gimmie them inches I make miles out them bitches, brew
Listen, you couldn't do a mountain trial while in my intertube
Tour de Force, tied so I am not the daddy
Had to move the club all by myself 'cause I ain't had no caddy
Gladly, didn't always have that cake but I always had a patty
Or at least a home girl like Aesha from Cincinnati
Word to Ken and Kathy, who says that we can't be happy?
Sadly that it ain't no joke on that block, let Laffy Taffy
Tried to trap me, dug out like a nappy snappy, even Lassie
Attacked me, tag me for grapplin' so I can get back to wrasslin'
For the love because the foundation is my heart, that's my start
Play my part, make communications with my art
Give my DJ the Serato, got that chico from my vatos
Down in Chicos in El Paso, Tapatío on my tacos

Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (why?) Cause they ain't kickin' it right

Yeah, uhh
Doin' them papers for the paper like I'm Superman
Past, wanna put it all behind me like a movin' van
Future, want it cuter than Karrueche Tran, Hula dance
Not like Yokozuna in booty pants, on Hoover, I do the Dam
Or at least I'm tryin', in the hopes that I see some diamonds
On a boat and a piece of mind and on a coast with a decent climate
Where dopes wanna seek refinement
And the pros wanna keep it client
And the cults wanna see my rhymin'
For the dose of the secret science (yeah)
Way through the maze on the way
To the stage at the pace of Amazing Grace (okay)
And a raisin raised in the rays of the Sun
Wouldn't fade in the shade of the day (okay)
Will you lay in a cage with a snake
Gettin' filleted on the back and it nailed to the palm?
Not the nails from salons but the nails that attack
And a rusty razor blade to the face
To clear your sins? Nah
They don't want that fate, no
They won't take that place, yeah
Gotta get mine from the love from below and above in the mud
And the mind of a kind but I'm tryna relax
But design all the time like floods
If you see me from the high road, more Tzatziki on my Gyro

Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (why?) Cause they ain't kickin' it right

Say insane, insane in the brain
In the brain, I bring the pain
Yeah, I came, that's why I came
In the game to do my thang, so whatchu think?
Write my story on the wall, on the wall
On the wall, ah-all, in Hall of Fames
Got a day in the city, ooohh
Not too gangster to be dancin' in the video

Yeah, uh, uh
Happy Timbuck2 Day, in the groove you got that Lupe
And I'm smooth as Michael Bublé eatin' creme brulee and Kool-Aid
You can scroll down just like Jubei, the whole timeline got that sauce
Hard and soft when I lay it down, gotta Wu-Tang logo on my duvet
That's ying-yang, that's Baby Boy and Ving Rhames
That's the best of both worlds like God caused the Big Bang
(Mind blown) Now this might drive you insane
Keep blacks all around that waist, but don't wanna make us senseis
That's insane, send slaves, man's like, "I don't wanna work, send slaves
On ships, on waves, in waves", okay
Colder than a goalay, golder than my Rolay
Told her hope and hold her 'lobe just like Evander Holay
That's cleaner than a solar panel, power panoramic camera
Tanner family photo album, used to smuggle cocaine
Now they don't want that beef, let that child talk like a king
Let that cow walk in the street, extra mild sauce on my wings

Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (whatchu want?) Gimme the mic (whatchu want?)
Gimme the mic (why?) Cause they ain't kickin' it right

Say insane, insane in the brain
In the brain, I bring the pain
Yeah, I came, that's why I came
In the game to do my thang, so whatchu think?
Write my story on the wall, on the wall
On the wall, ah-all, in Hall of Fames
Got a day in the city, ooohh
Not too gangster to be dancin' in the video

[Timbuck2 & Lupe Fiasco:]
We got any hip-hop fans out there?
Where y'all at? Make some noise
Got a day in the city, ooohh
Not too gangster to be dancin' in the video
Timbuck2, basically just a kid from Chicago that loves DJ'ing

    Scroll down like jubei? Ninja scroll reference? ooooo weeeeee

  5. blkenuf

    Lupe has songs like this, Put Em Up and Form Follows Function where he is freestylin (in the original sense of the word) yet he still kicks so much knowledge completely effortlessly! Its unreal for someone to be that good. On a level that no one else really has been. His fun almost throwaway songs are deeper lyrical than most rappers could even try to get to. I'm not even gonna discuss the actual deep concept songs like WAV files or Gold and the Right Thing to Do here. That's for another discussion.

  6. Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias

    This beat and flow have that 90s feeling

  7. Kaleb Chappell

    Okay I’ve just started listening to Lupe and I hate myself for waiting so long to give him a shot fml

    Moleseng Mokgosi

    @Ethan depends on your tastes....but check out his mixtapes... Fahrenheit 1/15 Part I to Part 3, Enemy of The State, Pharaoh Height 2/30 then albums Food and Liquor (the first one), THE COOL, Tetsuo and Youth....the list really goes on and on....

    Ethan

    Moleseng Mokgosi okay thanks I’ll check theses out 😄

    BlackDoll Nerd

    Don't feel bad I used to listen to Lupe when I was 14 but I stopped listening a 16.

    I didn't get back to listing till I was 26 and hoping g to find a Male Rapper that I can find and listen to.

    Get your brain ready and welcome to #LupeLand.

    Scott Hutchinson

    I just started listening as well and now he is all I listen to. Everything he does is the truth.

    Anthony Truman

    @Ethan what did you think of his mixtapes, The Cool, and Food & Liquor? He actually recently had a concert where he performed the entire Food & Liquor album with a live band and it was amazing.

  22. Kayem x Khepri

    “That’s The Best Of Both Worlds Like God Caused The Big Bang.” This Bar Fucked Me Up For Two Days Straight 😑😑💯

  56. nicky verbeek

    Lupe is flex just like Paris Tokyo .

  57. Keshav a.k.a. Kiki Boddula

    @ 3:56 - "now this might make you in-sane, keep blacks (african americans) all around the waist (like a black belt in karate), but don't want to make us senseis (SELF-empowered teachers) / that's sense-less (or "sen" (previous/historical) "slay") / "send slaves" man's like, "i don'twanna work, send slaves, on ships, on waves, in waves (a technical audio format)" l !ok" :)

    Keshav a.k.a. Kiki Boddula

    ?did i really have to break it down like that? :)

    Misc.E105

    "in waves" = in succession or successive groups. For example, "the 1st of 3 waves of enemies"--you can see it used this way in many video games. the There's at least a double entendre there if you consider WAV Files, but the direct meaning is sending slaves across the sea on ships in successive groups. Regardless, it's just great lyricism to emphasize the Long Chains theme: group after group of slaves being shipped across the sea from different places, spaced in time like separate ocean waves breaking against the shore, yet sharing a common essence (water for the waves, blackness for the slaves).

    Rasheen Fields

    Keshav a.k.a. Kiki Boddula 🔥🔥🔥👍🏾thanks bro. Needed that

    Keshav a.k.a. Kiki Boddula

    @Rasheen Fields hmm, ok l sure

    Harnoor Singh

    Atlantic records - "i don't wanna work, send slaves, on ships, on waves, in waves.."
    Lupe - "okay" *WRITES WAV FILES*

  58. Stephen Kerns

    Wow!!!!🏄🏾‍♂️

  59. Leander Fredericks

    "Gimme the mic. Why? Cause they aint kickin it right." FACTS

    Bonnie Brock

    Why give mic?!?

  60. Dayestar

    When lupe said "thats cleaner than a panner cammer hammer bammer banner hokey pokey loki okee dokee folky used to smuggle cocaine" that shit spoke to me

  61. Toby Frazier

    First verse Fife Dog, 2nd Andre 3000, 3rd Big Boi?

  62. Keith Rogers

    What I think? A man is what I think.preach that! Amen

  63. Liberty City El

    Lupe >>> Kendrick

    Imiko

    @Marco Polo 10 times? Foh

    Devyn Snyder

    @Marco Polo you crazy af kendrick cant touch lupe

    vaylonmagicxi

    Devyn Snyder Kendrick has better albums though lol.

    Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias

    @vaylonmagicxi T&Y DW and F&L >>>> any Kendrick's album. Not to mention TPAB was super overrated

    vaylonmagicxi

    Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias what a stupid Allie. TPAB is more critically acclaimed and it’s LITERALLY higher rated and better executed concept than any Lupe album

  64. PretaX Official

    Hyena eating lions

  65. Nick Sealy

    Killed it 👌🤦‍♂️✊🏾✅💯💨

  66. FrontRowFezzy

    yogi burr

    Kendrick is just fine holding the crown as the GOAT

    Chris M.N Sarille

    You had samurai lupe first.. but wu tang held that title.. then where the fuck did kung fu kenny come from.

    Jay Russo

    @Chris M.N Sarille lol

    Jay Russo

    @Lupus Caspo yeah

    Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias

    @Marco Polo Have you listened to tetsuo & youth?

  68. Zanobeats

    those first lines is like bruce lee water flow

    Sean Dafny

    Zanobeats It becomes the beat

  69. Derrick Berry

  72. Rock Barber

    Bruh! Lupe goin ham!

    ZENGOSAKUGOKUO

    Rock Barber straight pig, fat bacon

    Sir Emet

    I Been Making The Scrunch Face Throughout The Whole Song (Especially When He Went In On The 2nd Verse). Oooweee!!

  73. Neil DeGrasse Titan

    He sounds like spice 1

    Raymond Mendiaz

    Paul Travis how high are you ?

    Kami Kiramaru

    Daaaamn i love this track!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥

    I get Cole vibes from the intro and it makes me want J.Cole to hop on the track

    The Truest

    Spice 1 was one of his early influences, if you listen to his song "Lean" he says, "mom and pops what drove me crazy Twista, Spice 1, Biggie, Jay Z"

    Kickinthescience

    Kami Kiramaru the hook has J Cole vibes but the flow of the verses feels like Outkast

  74. JIM SHOE

    REAL CHICAGO ISH LU

  75. Chr1stph3r James

    Lupe is a top 5 lyricist.

    Michael Heaton

    Chr1stph3r James Might be top 1 lyricist lol

    Ryan Santos

    Chr1stph3r James yeah he’s not top 5 lol. He’s number 1

    ThC Reload

    The best lyricist of all time. No question.

  76. Alienoticz23

    Fucking sick as fuck lol

  77. qbourough

    🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

  78. Abdiel L.

    He can do this all day ...effortlessly

    Sean Dafny

    he shud make a album of these for every project he puts out then

    Abdiel L.

    Sean Dafny He can , but then where is the balance in that case?

    Sean Dafny

    Abdiel L. If He does a abstract project for every Album he flows effortlessly like this i think thats balanced. I think he shud do it since it comes so easy y not

    Abdiel L.

    Sean Dafny Im sure he can, but Albums are expensive and time consuming to make, and hes delved into many other projects. music isnt the only thing this guy does, follow his instagram youd be amazed!

    Slim C

    @Sean Dafny He can, but when he does albums like this, yall niggas dont even buy it or listen to it. But yall get geeked about the Carter 5 garbage ass albums and ignore Lupe. Lupe dont need to prove shit to anyone anymore, he proved everything he said in Dumb it Down.

  79. Kavon Calhoun

    This SHIT CLAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. Joseph Rivera

    Don't compare him to nobody.

    Rasheen Fields

    Joseph Rivera nobody. I like a lot of other artist and they all have their own lane, but Lupe is on another planet with his genius craft

    Deonte Sampson

    Facts y'all!

  81. James Keels

    Damn i skipped over alot of your albums i apologize

  82. the legend

    If you don’t think Lupe belongs in the GOAT convo you don’t know hip hop. Period.

    Gary Bush

    Lyrically Lupe is the goat!!

    G.O .A.T

    Lupe isn't in that talk but he is a fucken alien only 2nd to black thought

    Andrew Edwards

    Most underrated rapper in the game PERIOD. Kendrick joey and Lupe. Goats

  83. Deion Brown

    Outkast vibe....i love it and if you guys havent noticed lupe been using other rappers flows as a cadence reference. Here its Big Boi from outkast... And the hook sounds like Tokyo from the cool album

    One love people

    Sean Dafny

    Deion Brown Big Boi flow so slept on. I really think he better than 3k when it come to it

    Johnathan Adams

    @Sean Dafny big boi rap better..but 3,000s voice and sound was catchier. And 3k just had very cool vocals and melodys.

    the legend

    @Sean Dafny Nah, Big Boi has never been better than Andre 3k man, lol. 3k's lyricism, metaphors, etc are on another level. Big Boi is very good, an all time great, but 3K is top 5, that's the difference.

    Sean Dafny

    the legend idk man its close. I think Big Boi and Andre are pretty close in every category but Big Boi takes it wit his flows

    BlackKING Solo

    Hey hey cool it fellas... this is Lupe time 😄. Naw but really I do hear the Big Boi Flow in this. But the more I listened it sound like just some straight OUTKAST FLOW PERIOD. THAT'S WHY BOTH ANDRE 3K AND BIG BOI ARE WHAT THEY ARE. LIKE HE SAID "YOU BRING POTATO CHIPS, I'LL BRING THE HOT SAUCE" What im saying is ALL 3 ARE GREATS

  84. Vinny DeVille

    needed this

  85. FOE TAE XO

    This nigga lupe has honed his craft over years cuh so it's like watching bruce Lee flow..master shit
