Jack Of Spades

Boogie Down Productions

* was also featured in the movie "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka"

[KRS One]

Again we start let me say my part

About the only guy who has some heart

It took some time for the heart to come

but it's HERE and everybody's in fear

Crashin through the door of that WHORE

Bringin a end to this gold chain WAR

What you saw KRS One is now seeing

Another fly human being

Making, no excuses for the losers

Chain-snatchers, pimps, drug abusers

You don't like it but you gotta keep PUSHIN

until somebody starts MUSHIN

all these suckers, claimin to rule the environment

(Nah man, I ain't buyin it)

You seem to think that everybody can be taught

that everyone else can be bought

But, you took a short, cause one guy hasn't been paid

He is the Jack of Spades!

* D-Nice scratches "Jack.. Jack.." *


He's a, calm kind of guy, courageous and loyal

But don't let the temper boil

Cause just like a pot when the whistle blows

(That's right boy, anything goes!)

The crime is commited and he's right on your tail

There's no bail, not thinkin bout jail

All the ends, are justified by the means

when Jack's on the scene

Track the movement, don't lose it

cause if he come through the back, he ATTACKS

CRACK, cocaine, cops, and more fiends

who all get the same in the heat of this gold chain GAME

Here is the aim --

destroy all the stereotypes, hypes, and crack pipes

We don't like, criminals, and crime --

but we don't pay it any mind

So here comes Kung-Fu, Joe, and Fly Guy

Slade, Hammer, and Slammer

I, am a, renegade teacher and scholar

If you ain't up on it you GOTTA

fall to the back of the line

Hear this rhyme, cause I'ma say it one more time

It's JACK'S theme song that KRS made

It's called the Jack of Spades!

* D-Nice scratches "Jack.. Jack.." *


You know, the Jack of Spades is now down with the BDP Posse

If you wanna see more, just watch me

MAN, do what I do, throw your hands in the air

And scream it out, ohh yeah "OHH YEAHHH!!"

One more time! "OHH YEAHHH!!"

(Flash the rhyme!)

Cool, guy, loud and quiet

If your head's in the way, he'll FLY IT

Don't try it, cause Jack of Spades doesn't BUY IT

He's a one man riot

Cleanin the community, of all it's debris

The C-R-I-M-E

The road was long and scary and some didn't make it

The average guy couldn't take it

But JACK, is not, the average guy

He took a piece of the pie and BIT IT

Got with it, for his brother he DID IT

So you gotta admit it

This is a martyr, a soldier, a hero

WHY? Because he started from zero

In this battle he clearly understands their power

They're payin people by the hour

to sell, to lie, to try, to stand up and deny

they are gettin everybody HIGH

High on a cable, cash under the table

Currency is how they're able

to buy the cops and props and keep the law PAID

But here comes the Jack of Spades!

* D-Nice scratches "Jack.. Jack.." *

[KRS] Break it down!

* D-Nice scratches "Jack.. Jack.." *


Fresh.. for Jack of Spades, you SUCKERS

Ha ha ha ha ha ha hah..
