Burn Hollywood Burn

Public Enemy

featuring Ice Cube Big Daddy Kane


Burn Hollywood burn I smell a riot

Goin' on first htey're guilty now they're gone

Yeah I'll check out a movie

But it'll take a Black one to move me

Get me the hell away from this TV

All this news and views are beneath me

Cause all I hear about is shots ringin' out

So I rather kick some slang out

All right fellas let's go hand out

Hollywood or would they not

Make us all look bad like I know they had

But some things I'll never forget yeah

So step and fetch this shit

For all the years we looked like clowns

The joke is over smell the smoke from all around

Burn Hollywood burn


Ice Cube is down with the PE

Now every single bitch wanna see me

Big Daddy is smooth word to muther

Let's check out a flick that exploits the color

Roamin' thru Hollywood late at night

Red and blue lights what a common sight

Pulled to the curb gettin' played like a sucker

Don't fight the power ... the mother fucker


As I walk the streets of Hollywood Boulevard

Thinin' how hard it was to those that starred

In the movies portrayin' the roles

Of butlers and maids slaves and hoes

Many intelligent Black men seemed to look uncivilized

When on the screen

Like a guess I figure you to play some jigaboo

On the plantation, what else can a nigger do

And Black women in this profession

As for playin' a lawyer, out of the question

For what they play Aunt Jemima is the perfect term

Even if now she got a perm

So let's make our own movies like Spike Lee
