West, Kanye - Crack Music Lyrics




[Hook]
[Kanye]
That's that crack music nigga
That real black music nigga

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[The Game]
That's that crack music nigga
That real black music nigga

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[Verse 1]
[Kanye]
How we stop the black panthers?
Ronald Reagan cooked up an answer
You hear that?
What Jill Scott was hearin
When our heroes and heroines got hooked on heroin.
Crack raised the murder rate in DC and Maryland
We invested in that it's like we got Merril-Lynched
And we been hangin from the same tree ever since
Sometimes I feel the music is the only medicine
So we cook it, cut it, measure it, bag it,sell it
The fiends cop it
Nowadays they cant tell if that's that good shit
We ain't sure man
Put the CD on your toungue yeah, thats pure man.

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
From the place where the fathers gone,
The mothers is hardly home
And the...
Gonna lock us up in "Audy Home"
How the Mexicans say we just tryin to party homes
They wanna pack us all in a box like styrofoam
Who gave Saddam anthrax?
George Bush got the answers
Back in the hood it's a different type of chemical,
Am and Hammer baking soda
Raised they own quota
Writin when our soldiers ran for the stove cuz--
Cuz dreams of being 'Hova went from bein a brokeman ta bein a dopeman
Ta bein a president look theres hope man
This that inspiration for tha mos and tha folks man,
Shorty come and see if mama straight overdosin.
And this is the soundtrack,
This tha type of music you make when you round that--
Crack music nigga,
That real black music nigga.

[The Game]
That's that crack music nigga
That real black music nigga

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[Kanye]
God-how could you let this happen, happen, happen, happen, happen, happen?

La-la-la [etc.]

[Kanye]
That's that crack music, crack music
That real black music, black music

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[The Game]
That's that crack music nigga
That real black music nigga

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[Kanye]
That's that crack music, crack music,that real black music, black music

[Malik Yusef]
Our father, give us this day our daily bread ...give us these days and take our daily bread,
See I done did all this ole bullshit
And to attone I throw a little somethin, somethin on the pulpit.
We took that shit, measured it and then cooked that shit
And what we gave back was crack music
And now we ooze it through they nooks and crannies
So our mammas aint got to be they cooks and nannies
And we gonna repo everything they ever took from granny
Now the former slaves trade hooks for Grammys
This dark diction has become America's addiction those who ain't even black use it.

  2. poetmm

    Late Registration > Any kanye album
    this album holds a special place in my heart

  3. Name1 Last2

    Fire!!! Game should've had a verse though

  4. Obryl Donald

  9. The Real Mr. Sixx

    One of Kanye's revolutionary songs

  10. Ronald Brown

    Theirs alot of Truth and honesty along with metaphors in this song. If you break the song apart and actually listen to it you'll See What I'm Talking About

    For Example: I Don't Know How True It Is When It Comes To Reagan Bringing Crack Over To America But He Hated The Black Panthers And He Is A Little Responsible If Not All For The Crack Epidemic.

    The Crack Epidemic Started Around The 80's And It Continued Up Until The 90's Ronald Reagan Was President Around That Time And George H.W. Bush Was Vice President So Put Two And Two Together

    Just Saying

  11. Travis Boykin

    Where's my Polo Rugby and B-Boy Bucket Hat Chief?

  12. Asad Ghani

    damn i miss Ye

  13. Christian Dejesus

    What happened the new album Jesus is Lord fells like my God is Jesus a bad song inspiration...no but, why is it soooo poor quality. Apart from that, where is your God?

  14. D.j Swaheely

    Drum break is bananas

  15. Michael Taylor

    What is happening at the end, like what is that sound?? the hum?? anyone?

  16. Will.I.Am.7

    George Bush got the answers......

    Ronald Brown

    He's Partly Responsible For The Crack Epidemic

  17. Donte Brown

    2019 anyone ?

  18. robert madkin

    God how could you let this happen.....wow

  19. Flavio Chavez

    Imagine if he had dropped this in 2016? Homie could’ve been the face of BLM or something but instead the bitches and money and loss got to his head.

  20. Antonio

    Kanye never changed, he just mentally matured

    -Sadistik-

    False the nigga makes gospel now

  21. Dazie Duke

    Tf happened 💔

  22. David Gould

    “Put that cd on your tongue yeah that’s pure man”

  24. P-Air Montanna

    🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

  25. markus410

    Amazing lyrics and metaphors!

  26. M 360

    I think Ye will beat any producer in a song battle including Dre or Pharrell imo.

    Anthony Henry

    I don't know bout dre but maybe pharrell.

  27. Kenarotic843

    This is Kanye in god form mannnnn I miss this Kanye

  28. Skylar Belser

    When those violin’s kicks in at 3:37🎻😩🔥

  29. Elohino Theodore

    The metaphor in this song is brilliant

  30. WheresWallace4883

    Best song of the album, and one of Ye's greatest songs ever.

  31. Red Andre

    Adam22 wassup

  32. Ron Banks

    There's alot of differnt races that smoke and sell crack. Why's it gotta be mainly blacks? It's politicly in-correct.

    Ason Unique

    You're an idiot. or young. or both.

    Karrieem Dixon Jr

    Shut the fuck up

  33. CZHSOP BLOC

    Plz come bacccccccckkkkkk brother

  34. Fly Lima Beats

    Listening to this song made me realize how fake the Game is, Kanye put him on such a dope track and out of nowhere Game decided to talk trash about Kim 🤦🏾‍♂️

    M 360

    Fly Lima Beats also produced “Dreams” and “Wouldn’t Get Far”

    Art Phillips iv

    Uh kim is a reality star only famous cause she's sexy and had a vid but not a porn starvinlost respect for yeezy when he got with her

    Art Phillips iv

    And the game is the truthem besides his dumbass name dropping ur dumb🤣

    Fly Lima Beats

    Art Phillips iv Nigga ur dumb. The fact that she did what she did in the past doesn’t give him the right to talk about someone’s wife like that. That shit is called disrespect.

    rockstar2873

    He’s a hater that’s why wish he had Kanye success !

  35. kTheshooter Filmography

    this music is the only reason us African americans still love Kanye he totally changed but the old him will be here for us to listen to

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony

    Marvin Amankwa-Dei exactly, 30 hours and no more parties in LA are some of his best raps. He’s capable to rap still

    Alan Brown

    @M 360 exactly bro like the nigga mom died at his peak of his career

  60. Lamar Shaw

    clubber lang4

    We must turn away from our evil ways and return to our blessed Lord. We were doing this until Vietnam came along. Then drugs hijacked our communities. There's still hope though. All things are possible through Jesus Christ

  61. Floyd CJ Wilson

    In 2019 nigga still listen to dis

    mr. cuddles

    I'll make one dog

    Pach Pacheco

    mr. cuddles I’ll be waiting.

  65. Cory Danrich

    This track will always go hard
    No matter what
    My thoughts or views about Kanye West today or tomorrow are.
    He should still be considered a *superproducer*

  66. dunmega tate

    You just gotta listen.

  67. Csb1289

    So powerful, so insightful, straight woke as hell, sick beat, and I truly feel THIS Kanye would punch current Kanye in the face. Come back, Ye. We need this black music again!!

  68. Madina Kass

    "Who place the damn Anthrax? Georges Bush got the answer". Kanye and Bush relationship was building up nicely.
    The funny thing about this, his album was released in August 2005 and in September 2005 he said Georges Bush doesn't care about black people. Is it clout? Is it speaking from the heart?
    I will forever give Kanye the benefit of the doubt. Ye is us.

    SOYLENT GREEN

    Madina Kass i thought it said who gave saddam anthrax

    Madina Kass

    @SOYLENT GREEN Indeed. I swear until now I always thought it was who place the damn Anthrax lol. Thanks again though.

  69. indopleaser

    new kanye sould just sample his old songs.

  70. Krenjura

    "So we cook it, cut it, measure it, bag it, sell it"

    Obryl Donald

  77. varun

  78. Derek Owarrior18

    We missed this old kanye that cared about black issues and our community... where tf did my nigga go? Not with that Donald Trump shit..smh

  79. Kevin Roque

    This is similar to Mortal man

    Just How It Is

    Kevin Roque What? How?

    James Lamp III

    I think he’s comparing the poem that Malik reads at the end of this song to the poem Kendrick reads in Mortal Man. It’s a loose comparison but I can see why he feels that way.

  80. LoLa Breezy

    I live around Crack heads!! So this the type of music u play when u around that!!😂😂💯
