The Watcher 2 Lyrics

JAY-Z, Terri, The Superslots Terrible Smashers

[Intro: Jay-Z]
The Watcher!
Jeah
Ugh
sh*t I do for a livin', n***a
sh*t I eat for a livin', n***a (The Watcher!)
That's how I live for a livin', n***a
Watching
'Kay, let's do this
The Watcher!

[Verse 1: Jay-Z]
Things just ain't the same for gangstas
But I'm a lil' too famous to shoot these pranksters
All of these rap singers, claiming they bangers
Doing all sorts of twisted sh*t with they fingers
Disrespectin' the game, no home training or manners
I was doing this sh*t when you was sh*tting in Pampers
I was moving them grams 'fore you knew what a hand-to-hand was
Ducking the vans, radars, and scanners
Before you knew what "hard white" or "tan" was
I was hitting the turnpike, aight with the bammers
I was nice with my hands, cuz, I'm hype with them hammers
I was pricking my finger 'fore you knew what a fam' was
I had it laid out 'fore you knew what a plan was
Three hundred mil' later—now you understand us
Y'all ain't see us coming through Vegas
You ever seen so much cham' bust in one night?
Grand, f**ked up one fight
I was on the Peter Pan bus
You was putting Peter Pan up in your room
Y'all f**kin' with whom?
Allow me to retort:
You cowards is just now learnin' the sh*t that we taught
You n***as ain't know about a Robb Report
'Bout a high-speed Porsche
I.e., you n***as ain't know how to floss
'Til I came through the door, like "Eric B. for Prez"
Respect me in this b*t*h!
You can't disrespect us ‘cause you got a little check cut
You was sucking 'em so long, f**king your lil' neck up
Now, you too big for your britches
You got a few little b*t*hes
You think you Hugh Hef', but you just ridiculous
I blew breath for you midgets, I gave life to the game
It's only right, I got the right to be king
n***as that got life really like what I sing
‘Cause they know it's really like, n***as feel my pain
Know the sh*t I don't write
Be the illest sh*t that's ever been recited in the game
Word to the hyphen in my name!
J-A-Y, Dash, Hoffa
The past, present, n***a, the future, proper
The Holy Trinity in hip-hop is us
We give Dre his props, but that's where it stops
It's the Roc!

[Bridge: Truth Hurts]
I know
You got your eyes on me
I feel you watching me
But it ain't hard to see that you can't see me
You try
But what you think you saw
Ain't what you thought you saw
You better off not looking at all

[Hook: Terri]
Everywhere that I go
Ain't the same as before
People I used to know
Just don't know me no more
But everywhere that I go
I got people I know
Who got people they know
So I suggest you lay low

[Verse 2: Dr. Dre]
I'm still on top of the game
Still droppin' flames, still c*ck and aim
Still at the top, had to rock for the fame over setbacks
There's been a lot since I came
You seen it all, how I got, how I gained
The momentum when it dropped, how I got through the pain
When I roll and shock, they watched me reclaim the streets
They made a special spot for my name
Dre, haters want a stop to my reign
But the music lives in me, every drop in my veins
The pride and the pain
All the way back from the rise of my name
See the world clear through the eyes of the man
See the world cheer for the rhymes that I gave
When the beat bangs, it'll drive 'em insane
The odds that I played
The best to emerge in the game: It's The Watcher

[Bridge: Truth Hurts]
I know
You got your eyes on me
I feel you watching me
But it ain't hard to see that you can't see me
You try
But what you think you saw
Ain't what you thought you saw
You better off not looking at all

[Hook: Terri]
Everywhere that I go
Ain't the same as before
People I used to know
Just don't know me no more
But everywhere that I go
I got people I know
Who got people they know
So I suggest you lay low

[Verse 3: Rakim]
I'm rated R, my brain contains graphic things
It turn traumatic teens into addicts and fiends
It's like watching a movie through a panoramic screen
Which means I can see the whole planet in the scene
Cash is the topic—the object? A fatter pocket
Some take the crack and chop it
But those that haven't got it take away to add a profit
It's catastrophic, I take the gat and c*ck it
And I'll sit back and watch it
These New York streets is ugly, I keep it gully
The world is mine, and can't nobody keep it from me
Yo, my neighborhood is never sunny
In the place where the number one cause of death is money
You can try coping
I seen enough sh*t to leave your frame of mind broken
I'm still alive and scoping
Be another hundred years 'til my skies close in
And I'ma die with my eyes open—The Watcher

[Bridge: Truth Hurts]
I know
You got your eyes on me
I feel you watching me
But it ain't hard to see that you can't see me
You try
But what you think you saw
Ain't what you thought you saw
You better off not looking at all

[Hook: Terri]
Everywhere that I go
Ain't the same as before
People I used to know
Just don't know me no more
But everywhere that I go
I got people I know
Who got people they know
So I suggest you lay low
