Pharoahe Monch - 24 Hours Lyrics

[Pharoahe Monch:]
Give me my motherfuckin' money
I want my goddamn money
In 24 hours you better have my money
I got bills and shit, I need medicine
Roof over my head, Con Edison
I need it
I want it

In '99 I caught a case for a rhyme, rape charge
Cut a Klansman's face, slashed his throat with the race card
Lyrically intergalactic
When I arrange to properly wait between my words, spacebars
Don't make me show you pictures of your daughter's grade school location
Your teenager goes to Queens Vocational
You? Wall Street occupation
Me? I'll occupy Wall Street like the protest just to discuss interest rates and inflation
Not stocks and bonds, but
Contusions and knots, fractions and blood coagulation
My medication is next to go
But I'ma get it out of Canada or Mexico
I need cash in hand with extra dough
For my albuterol and my Lexapro
Give me my money

Give me my motherfucking money
I want my goddamn money
In 24 hours you better have my money
I got bills and shit, I need medicine
Roof over my head, Con Edison
I need it
I want it

[Pharoahe Monch (Lil' Fame):]
Now they gon' make me drop a name on 'em (Say what?)
Totally inflict pain on 'em (Say what?)
I'ma get insane on 'em
They sayin' I'm sick so I'm a sick Lil' Fame on 'em

[Lil' Fame {Pharoahe Monch}:]
You got 24 hours to pay me my bread or you don't owe me nothing (Ante up!)
'Cause when I see you, you gon' get yo' head busted
I don't care if they rob Peter just to pay Paul
Peter gon' fuck around and get his ass Peter Rose
Scratch a match, burn that bitch for clownin' with Jamal
Taxiderm that bitch and mount him on the wall (Okay)
Time tickin'
All you gon' hear is that nine clickin'
I'm tryna get rich or die tryin'
Got my niggas speakin' to my son like
{Don't worry, Claude, you gon' get them Sneakers} (That's right)
That's what a nigga get for fuckin' with them leeches (Oh)
Could've furnished your crib with all the deluxe features (Oh)
Captain underground, you are just a lieutenant (Nigga)
I'm a Brownsvillain with a chest full of ribbons (Nigga)
It was 23 hours and a couple minutes
I threw that bird into a safe, she had my money plus interest
I said

[Pharoahe Monch:]
Give me my motherfuckin' money
I want my goddamn money
In 24 hours you better have my money
I got bills and shit, I need medicine
Roof over my head, Con Edison
I need it
I want it

I need it
Want it
Need it
Want it

  7. BillyJack85

    Having lil fame co-star on your song is a tricky proposition... cuz he'll make it better than it would've been without him but he'll also outperform you on your own track
    Decisions decisions

    79 dislike they must not want their money..

  67. No Change

    this reminds me back when it was Mos Def, Talib and Pharoahe killing the game. That 'Oh No' track was ridiculous!! can anyone remember what compilation it was on?
    it was a live lounge type project, i think Pt2?


    might be lyricist lounge 2

    No Change

    @neoleo97 It was!! your a star!! cool, yeah they were so so dope.

  68. ImmortalAK

    I've got a theory.... Everyone with "Lil" in their name is whack. Fame is the only person that disproves this theory. His shit is tight no lie. Mash out.

  69. Anthony Arcanum Sanctum Regnum

    Dope New York shit right here We are coming back bringing the culture back to The Mecca.

  70. sylenceexposed

    Dude these days have no idea what real rap and real hip hop was all about. Anyone who is 30+ years in age and not from the south were lucky. Mobb deep, Noriega, Nas, big pun , The clips , mos def, Dmx , so on and so forth.. these were beast mode artist. There was so many to mention in that era of rap now it’s mostly mumbling and auto tune drug out rap with nothing other than weak bars and nonsense.

  71. Mister006

    NYC Anthem put on full BANG by all the headz!
    They all need they Gottdamn Money!!!


    Hard!!!!....this is the energy rappers gave us back in the 90s!!!.....hopefully it will be trendy again!!!...Oh another thing, can Pharoahe Monch not be in ur top 5????......yall need to wake up!!!! underrated...he rap circles around Eminem trust me.

  76. Martini Records

    Oh noooooo 😲✋dnt kill him lol

  77. Rudy Barro

    Wish Pharoah had a 2nd verse on this and now Im dying to know about the back story. Which Label did he ghost write for?? Rawkus?? Who didnt pay him?? Did they ever "Anti-Up"??

  78. Keara B

    Le robar la Letras ! Que viva Mexico 🇲🇽!

  83. Tim R

    Monophonics sample + Pharoe monch = Heaven.

  84. Social Konstruct

    Interestingly enough, this video makes me think that the now defunct Rawkus Records still owes Monch a ton of dough for his works.

    Guittar riff is dope as fuck,reminds me of "ground Zero" and fizzy whomack is still on his shit as usual "It was 23 hours and couple minutes,i throwed that burner to his face,he had my money plus interest" RAW as fuck just the way i like him. SALUTE
