Burned Hollywood Burned Lyric

Chuck D Lyrics
Bamboozled Soundtrack - Movie, 2000
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Burned Hollywood Burned Zack de la Rocha:

Babylon fall,
Yes, y’all, I’m like Paul
Robeson style that's
Wild on a blacklist.
Check how they strangled his life.
Hollywood, the edge of the government knife.
Exit the age of the black pawn--
I won’t stand for the dawn’s
Early light. It never shined on my kind,
So let the flame take flight.
Trap vandalist,
Mad with this
Fist cause life gets hard
As an amethyst,
Attack this veil of hate
And smash this ill vision
Of blackness.
Scripted like animals on display,
Feel like Diallo in a doorway.
Hate come 41 shots a scene.
Yo Chuck. pass the kerosene

Burn Hollywood (x16)

Black Thought:

Between a hard place and a rock,
Racing the clock,
Sparking a flame,
Now Hollywood’s
Sweltering hot
Now that’s a mother-f**king meltin' pot, for real,
Some'in' got to give.
Black actors and actresses,
They can’t catch no roles that's positive.
I lick shots
I grew up on the??? [still can't hear this line].
We call it a prose,
Spittin’ flames outta black holes,
It’s over, that’s how that goes.

We burn from the silver screen
To rap shows,
Where the beat drops
the way that your heart rolls.
Now 3 Gs,
three hundred and sixty degrees,
Radiating live by the SP.
Just breathe deep to it
Till the chest heave.
Who wanna see the black people
With the prestige,
Who telling the cops to freeze?
Black Thought down with the PE
Leaving ashes of palm trees

Burn Hollywood x16

Chuck D:

Burn Hollywood Burn!
While some of y’all still ain’t learning,
People the pay the price in real life.
Minds and souls, sold and controlled
By the same old roles created by a**holes,
Who find reactors instead of actors
To react thus financially play a factor.
No matter how whack the flick is,
The fact is how much the bling bling
Crowd reacted.
Damn, little dot on the map I attack,
Pimpin TV movies in the third Iraq??? [not sure about last word]
Damn right I’m hating!
Since birth of the nation--
Still waiting for decision makers.
Who avoided one side the celluloid.
I go to IQ rehab to get my brain back
I’m at a point of no return
I ain’t crazy,
Burn Hollywood Burn

(Transcriber's note: I started with the lyrics from justsomelyrics.com, then edited them on the basis of MANY repeated
listenings. I also used the Mac software program, Djay, to play the song at a slower speed. Even so, there are a couple spots
I still can't make out, and I may have made mistakes elsewhere--corrections appreciated.)
