Public Enemy - Everything Lyrics

I got no fancy car
Never was no superstar
I got no grammy trophy
Got no problem if you approach me
Never had no rolling stone cover
Never had no top 10 hits brother
Got no tv show
Got no maybach benz or rolls
Got no movie roles
Got no platinum or gold
I got no diamond rings
Watches and all them things
Got no waiting plane
What I mean is
I got no private jets
But I also got no regrets
Got no swag
But got no love
For something I ain't never had

Got no mansions
I got no yacht
But I got no choice
But to show
What some of us forgot
Never was hot
Never was pop
But I never ever stoppin
That real hip hop
Got no million follower friends
On twitter
On and facebook
Look my friends
Got no thing for video games
Got no shame
Sayin I ain't never playin

Public Enemy Everything Comments
  1. brake chamber

    The black woman don't know what she got ? A Prince or a King Vanity of Vanities ?

  2. Sid Dasquid

    Dam! Out of every rapper ever. He will always hold the crown as the greatest in my book. Today this Nov the 6th being my 49th birthday I can remember all the great ones of rap. I battle between KRS 1 AMD RAKIM being the most lyrical reppers ever. BUT THERE'S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WHO WAS THE GREATEST RAPPER EVER. Chuck D and Public Enemy's message made the rap God. Thanks chuck.😍😍😍😍😍 from 98 Oldsmobile. To We got it all. I'm still feeling your message.

  3. Frank Robson

    Será fora minha pessoa ainda ouve esse som em 17_10_2019

  7. nicholas bortolan

    My God, this is Music.
    Thank you Chuck, Thank you Public Enemy

  8. Establish Mindfulness

    All I can say is two things about this song: real and honest. That says it all.

  9. Donald Costabile

    Been listening to PE ever since "Fear of a Black Planet" dropped on my unsuspecting head; been following them ever since.

    I can't *begin* to say what this song does for me, but it always brings me to tears.

    Every time. <3

  10. Prederick

    There's music you make when you're 20, and music you make when you're 45 and realizing your fragility and mortality. That's what this song is about, to me.

  11. frankie z

    this is one of my favourite song ever. makes me shiver every time i listen to it, in its down-to-earth honesty, intensity and sincerity. the video is powerful, as well. very effective.
    on a personal side, whenever i listen to it i think of a friend of mine who's not anymore here. she loved this song, too.

    although i speak a decent english, i can't grasp some parts of the speech @2:18: (please correct me if i'm wrong, i'm not a native speaker):
    if you've got your old ones around / love them / talk to them / ... (???) ... ...

    many many thanks for any hint!

    and, you guys: thanks again for this masterpiece.

  12. Fernando0Vasques

    Let me say: T I M E L E S S... This one WILL stand the test of time... Thank you.

  13. Yo Daguy

    Just gave this a first listen, I'm sitting here as a 39 year old guy with misty eyes just thinking back over so many years and appreciating how much PE helped open my eyes to so many different ways of viewing our society. I may have turned out way different politically but my heart will always pump the same color blood as Chuck, much love respect and gratitude from New Hampshire

  14. Christ Éssam

    J'adore 💕

  69. Beeble Brox

    Chuck D is the fucking man. And Ice-T too, I don't gaf what ne1 says about either of these 2.They set rap & hip hop ON Fire and converted the whole world to the sound, the potential power of powerful messages again, FOR the People and OF the People, of Revolution and hitting the spot on the Corrupt, the Greedy, and worse, the commercial, sell out Pop-hop, radio-friendly BULLSHIT, whack "rap stars" singing about some kind of world line riches and gold that the vast majority of people will NEVER be a part of, thanks to the REAL gangsters of the world who hang all these pop star, fly by nights up by their balls to spin around on stage like empty marionettes on stages full of fireworks. They're empty spectacles. Public enemy and Ice-T, who crossed over into punk!, played Lollapalooza before anyone knew what it was and by the time they found out the bread and Circus junkies turned to Justin Timberlake and Justin Beiber.

    These little Justin's gon' learn: they. Ain't. SHIT in the company of Public Enemy. Props to Brother Ali.

  70. Bill Friar

    Beautiful song, Beautiful message. Public Enemy is delivering rap & the blues. Bringing in miss Sheila Brody to sang along is just brilliant...Brings it all together! We Got It All!

  71. FunBros111

  72. y doesitmatter

    [email protected]#$ chuck D, you say LL should make it to the hall of fame, before Pac, was LL every trying to revolutionize his pp, did he ever mention Latasha Harlin's . did he ever make a cut like a letter to my unborn child?

    M L Rogers

    Look at LL's body of work, he deserves a spot. Pac was a great artist but LL is a symbol of that era.

    y doesitmatter

    You stuck on stupid...Did he ever go political, you can make a case for public enemy, burn Hollywood burn, u can't trust them... Grandmaster flash the message, PAC has to many 2 name, but LL he made alot of albums not saying💩

  73. Christos Philippides

    Jealousy can cause people to do some frightening things. This is why I can appreciate people for who they are and not covet anything that they have that might appear to be better than what I have to the naked eye. A person could get themselves caught all the way up trying to catch up to somebody. All that glitters is not gold. Chasing that gold can leave you looking empty and soulless. For what? Just so you can feel better about yourself? Nah. A person has to feel good about themselves first and foremost before they can chase those goals, otherwise, you'll find yourself doing a whole lot of questionable stuff to the point where you look extra devious and horrible.Then come to find out, you'll lose your integrity, your soul, and yourself. And when people find out, everything you had in the first place is gone. That's not a good look.

    This is why I love the song Everything by Public Enemy. You can have everything if you just look at it. Look at yourself and be glad for what you have. Not the shiny things either. You have yourself. You have you. Your identity. Your experiences. Your integrity and honor. And your respect.

    This is why respect is important. If you do the kind of stuff that makes a person question your respect. Then nobody can respect you.

    As for me. I prefer respect. Anybody who has the chance to meet me in person knows that. And they see it. #LoveWork, #ImGoodYall #KeepYourSoul

    For the 35+ plus of my life I have been looking for male figures in my life, my granddad is one, Chuck D s another.

  85. TheSpot4HiphopTV

    You have everything if you would just look at it.

  86. TheBotrigga

    we got it all!!!

  87. Vahe Katros

    "Got no problem if you approach me" - Hey Chuck, thanks for your time and honesty - we talked after your speech at Stanford years ago - we talked about the Armenian Genocide and it's connection to Black history - you immediately engaged and even invited me to hang out - one of those decisions I regret, I said I had to give my friend a ride. I should have given him the keys. Thanks for writing this. An appreciator since 1987.

  88. Hristo Veselinov

    Very positiv

  89. Warren Burns

    P.e peace out

  90. Владимир Стојановић Мрле

    You, my respected friends, are the ONLY ONE that is good from your country. Everlasting RESPECT for you from my youth till the day I die.
    PUBLIC ENEMY is and will be No. 1!!!

    Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, Khari Wynn, DJ make my heart beat go strong and full when I hear your words and music.
    Every time when I fall, you bring me up.
    And this song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.
    All the best wishes from me, Vladimir from Belgrade, Serbia.
