Lyrics:[Mos] Sometimes, you gotta be direct with the people, y'know like..
[T.K] Give it to 'em
[Mos] Yo!
[T.K] Give it to 'em
[Mos] GET, UP, NOW!

Yo, we keep it type raw, and know exactly what we fight for
when the nightfall
come, we in the right war
Cats who spill blood for a cause, not just because
Defy the
authority and follow God's law
Revolutionary entrepeneurs; who make the fans
clap they
hands and stompin the floor not start the applause
(Ahhh ssssh! Yeah!) Thank you very much,
without further adieu
Let me introduce the rest of my crew, Mos Def!

[Mos Def]

Yo, I am the world renowned, verb adjective adverb
pronoun preposition suffix prefix

Original or remix, sunburst and eclipse
Me and Kwe' combine like strands on a double-helix

My speech seasoned, with dialect of my region
Booga-nam Brooklyn Bed-Stuy Eastern
youth and policemen, they nah reach agreement
Pressure in the mornin, pressure in the

{*scratching* "Mos Def" .. "Kwe'-Kweli" ..
"Hi Tek on the beat!" ..
"brothers and sisters"}

Chorus One: BlackStar (Mos Def + Talib Kweli)

need, to, get, up, right, now
and, move, with, this, yes, this, means, you
You, you

[Talib Kweli]
Yeahh, alright yeah, alright yeah, alright yeah
Alright yeah, alright
yeah, alright yeah, yeah-ehhhh

Uh, uh, uh, uh, yo, yo, yo
Things changed since we
came out, been some shit in New York
Niggaz stopped gettin jig in New York, bloods and crips in
New York
The Y-2-K celebration wasn't big in New York
Babylon live in New York, should I
keep a crib in New York
or just V.I., to handle my B.I.
When with my A-Alikes we see with
three eyes

[Mos Def]
Yo Kweli I agree I, was thinkin the same thing myself
in the city ain't no good for your health
Things changed in New York, type strange in New
Forty-Deuce don't look the same in New York
Just politics, tricks and big games in
New York
Switched trains a writer can't get fame in New York
Internet and Wall Street got
paid in New York
Poor folks and workin class got slayed in New York
Even still, everyday
they make weight in New York
Flashlights lookin for a brighter day in New York
In New York
they say it's - red hot
Will the temperature ease up? Black I guess not
It's multi-lane
traffic, no sign for rest stops
No corner breaks, put on your gloves and just box
No dance
school to teach you to wop and bus stop
Better get up in the booth, hop up and just rock

If you think it's like that, it's not so just stop
All mankind time runnin down on one watch,
just watch

Chorus Two: BlackStar (Mos Def + Talib Kweli)

If, you, are, just,
coming, in, I, will
say it, once, more, so, you, can, hear, cause
You, need, to, get, up,
right, now
and, move, with, this, yes, this, means, you
You, you

Yo, Mos Def and Talib Kweli bring disaster to the industry
We best-sellin authors
writin great chapters in history
These cats undercover like gay rappers dealin with
My platinum grey matter spray batter that's specifically
designed to make rappers
break faster than eggshells in the mornin
Inhaled the divine in that's laid dormant
from the well STAY pourin
I answer back when I hear fate callin
Freedom fighter ready to
attack at the crack of a new day dawnin
Way more than necessary skills for the application

My flow is Great like the Lakes and it rocks like Applachains
My facts more than make up for
what you lack in imagination
You more confused than Tiger Woods when he made up
I'm sayin!

[Mos Def]
Break bounds like the jet Concorde
awards before I leave for my (?) world tour
When they scream encore, that's when they want
Flow steadily, whether I'm on or off shore
High potent, zone coastin, no jokin

Safecracker sniff gon' keep the joint open
Peep the focus, high resolution, high reception

My "Train of Thought" connectin with my bredren from Reflection like

Chorus Three:
BlackStar (Mos Def + Talib Kweli)

You, need, to, get, up, right, now
and, move,
with, this, yes, this, means, you, again!
You, need, to, get, up, right, now
and, move,
with, this, yes, this, means, you, we goin
[M] New York [T] Philly
[M] Chicago [T]
[M] Miami [T] D.C.
[M] L.A. [T] The world
[M] London [T] Amsterdam
Paris [T] Japan
[M+T] Any place that a human being might stand, we goin..
