Too Late Lyrics

Too Late by Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Too Late Yo
When the bass thump, the place jump like it's way crunk, yeah
Fake punks get they face lumped, sent to the most high by the most fit
You gotta do, fuck that almost shit, the fam is close knit
You diggin', know the clock don't stop tickin'
Glocks still spittin', the whole block politickin'
Like presidents with they minds dead on arrival
Leaving no evidence of a struggle for survival

Songs relevant to the times like the 'Psalms' read in The Bible
Stepping to this leaves thoughts in your head 'it's suicidal'
It's the T to the A L I B, the deep rooter
Rolling with my Wannabattle cats with Chief Buddha
And see through the overspecialized, under pressurized, no lie, texturized
Emcees who got the masses mesmerized
With empty rhetoric, they better quit
Niggas, so hollow that they echo like sentiments

Nowadays rap artists coming halfhearted
Commercial like pop or underground like black markets
Where were you the day hip hop died?

Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?

Kwa is chillin', Tone is chillin'
What more can I say, we stay building and make killings
Take children through the wilderness by the hand
It's a great feeling, show 'em how to be a man
Exactly, pack trees in my khakis, my sound fat like a knee
While you thin like a Mackey

C'mon, shine so bright when I walk by
You gotta squint like the motherfucking sun in your eye
What! Say something, you stay fronting
It ain't nothing, let off like I'm big game hunting

Me and Tek stay way blunted
Wave running on beaches with white sand with a slight tan
Smack the mic stand with my right hand when I'm excited
Leave you so far in the dust that you forced to bite it
On fire like property lost to riots
Yo, ain't no stopping us when we all united

Nowadays rap artists coming halfhearted
Commercial like pop or underground like black markets
Where were you the day hip hop died?

Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?

Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?

Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late to ride?
Is it too early to mourn? Is it too late, too late
Is it too late, too late, Is it too late, too late
Is it too late, too late, too late, too late
