RZA - Drama Lyrics

[Intro: RZA]
I wanna dedicate this song to the young god, Kareem
The Genius... Digi...
Sing it 'em to real quick, yo

[Chorus: Thea]
Like to keep my head up to the sky
And ask myself, why, it has to be this way
I'd like to live my life in peace
And have, not to worry about
All the drama, I can't take
Cuz we strive for luxury
And try to feed our families
It always seems that someone seen our way
I'd like to live my life in peace
And have, not to worry about
All the drama, I can't take

[RZA (Monk)]
I met a young brother, about 28
Who seemed intelligent and rather quite straight
I greeted him, and struck a conversation
To see if the youngster had some self motivation
Peace brother, whats your name? How you be?
(I'm Rugged Monk and I'm all about the currency)
You mean gettin' paid?

[Monk (RZA)]
Yeah like my man's brother
Who has a condo, he shares with his baby mother
You know a condo beats my apartment
With no lights, no gas and backed up rent
No hot water or heat, infested with plenty rats
That'll eat up the average alley cat
(I'm like damn, homey, thats poverty, he's like)
Word O.G. that bothers me
Plus I'm about to be a new father, G
(We need to wise up and change the hood policy)


[RZA (Monk) {both}]
Yo, why you fear the devil, as a grown man?
Why you not out there trying to make your own plan?
See we are a victim, of a situation
Where a wicked man, separated the nation
And got us killin' off one another
Black on black, they pit brother on brother
It's gettin' hot, hotter than July
See the murder and crime rate is risin' to the sky
(For example, in my neighborhood it's so hot
I'm often woke up, from the alarming sounding of a shot, so I'm thinking what)
Is your neighborhood a trap?
{Could this be the place marked X on the map?}
(And I'm spotted like a target in a shooting gallery
So I strive to seek for a better salary
So I can escape from where? From this ghetto life area
{Cuz everyday it gets scarier}

  54. TheRealSaintB

    anyone else think thea sounds a LOT like macy gray?

  55. raye faye


  56. NickR1212

    The Birth Of A Prince quality album!!!!

  57. Carl Brashear

    dirtyy beat and lyrics

  58. Alex Wilson

    She sound like a human cat.

  59. bobdigi88

    The women on the track is quirky and different cause a clean typical sound, isn't what RZA is about. I'm personally not a fan of RZA tracks having a women singing the chorus. But if he's gonna do it, i'd rather this than using someone pop friendly.

  60. grt05

    the blade trinity soundtrack?

  61. rabidninja

    this chicks voice is worse than rihannas she sounds like an old lady or somethin haha

  62. FAG098

    Love this song, so lovely.

  63. Christian Lynch

    Blade 3 Soundtrack

  64. tazer5

    i like her voice too but alot of people are hatin dont know why guess they wanna hear rihannas bitch ass

  65. tetrak

    which one is GZAs version?

  66. tetrak

    they havent broekn up...

  67. Chris

    Good Night is the bump, but a lot of the joints have too much goin on. The musical framework is cool, but it has to be a foundation for the drums to ride and cats to throw darts. If he toned it down a bit, it would be that next generation 'Wu shit that I'm yearnin' for!

  68. walmartian555

    i like the singing dont be so hard on the rza hes not just spitting his full force here man
    hes trying to send a message here

  69. walmartian555

    damn hes evolved and his beats are fuller than ever

  70. hydroids

    Wow this song is straight garbage, RZA can do so much better than this. And he fucking recycled lyrics from GZA. Wtf????

    Nick Chemist

    Fuck off hater , this is a well done track . Very feel good song

  71. Christian Lynch

    Well from Digi Snacks(the new album), I like Drama, Creep, Good Night, and.. You can't stop me now, but in the past, i like The song "Fatal", and from when he was in Wu-Tang, I like Brooklyn Zoo, C.R.E.A.M., Tearz.. and a lot more, just too lazy to list em all...All you need to know is that Wu-Tang Clan was the best Rap Group In History, and that there are a lot of Classic Rap songs that they came out with

  72. Christian Lynch

    Creep is my favourite song from Digi Snack... Everything has started to slowly get worse after Wu-Tang Broke Up..RZA is one of the greatest, way too underated

  73. vltraplus

    man i love wu tang, for real....but i aint feelin this...

  74. Victor Goldfeld

    yes it is

  75. chumptochamp1

    is that chrisette michelle singin


    This is one of my favs on the album. They were straight spittin da real. And Thea has a very nice voice.


  77. Sean Landes

    this is classic rza shit. he talks about the realest shit

  78. Robert Connor

    Im sure that's a line Gza used in a track from Word Of A Genius,though Rza is talking about Rugged Monk as he answers him back if you listen to it.

  79. Amel10101

    Who is he talking about in the beggining of the song?

    "I met a young brother about 28 who seemed intelligent and rather quite straight."


    I met a young brother about 28 who seemed intelligent and rather quite straight.
