"It Takes More" as written by and Niomi Maclean/harper Daley....
The shit that u promote fightin' fuckin'
like u don't want 2 grow
U talkin' so much sex
But u nah tell the youts bout aids
And u tell them bout consequence no
U talkin' like u a G but ur a killer killin' ur own
ur just a racist mans pussy
Tell me who u wants to know
What when who where or how u do ur hoe

Certainly not me
Certainly not me
Cos baby personally I like to b challenged mentally
I've heard it all b4 gangsters pimps and whores
Quality is poor
A girl likes me needs more

It takes more 2 amuse a girl like me
So much more 2 confuse a girl like me
They got us cos while u're braggin
bout ur badness ur just
Avoidin' addin' 2 the real shit
that's happening 2 us

Now who gives a damn about the ice on ur hand
If it's not 2 complex
Tell me how many Africans died 4 the bagguettes
on ur rolex?
So what u pushin' a nice car
Don't u know there there's no such thing as superstars
We leave this world alone
So who gives a fuck about the things u own

Certainly not me
Certainly not me
Cos baby personally I like to b challenged mentally
Ur bullshits insignificant
And it don't hep to pay my rent
Its pure negativity that you impose on me

It takes more 2 amuse a girl like me
So much more 2 confuse a girl like me
They got us cos while u're braggin
bout ur badness ur just
Avoidin' addin' 2 the real shit
that's happening 2 us

It takes more 2 amuse a girl like me
So much more 2 confuse a girl like me
They got us cos while u're braggin
bout ur badness ur just
Avoidin' addin' 2 the real shit
that's happening 2 us

Now I could sit and chat shit bout dicks and sex
But my business is my business I got self respect
I could talk bout how my press could pimp mans doe
Get the keys 2 his ride and his home
But I looked it up and that would make me a hoe
Little sisters now I really gotta let u know
Real women ain't sexin' 4 no mans doe
Real women work hard 2 make their own
And we can all chat bout gats and blacks on blacks
Enforce the hypes and all the stereotypes
But yours are watchin' that ain't what I'm here 4
Show em 2 think higher and aspire 2 b more

It takes more 2 amuse a girl like me
So much more 2 confuse a girl like me
They got us cos while u're braggin
bout ur badness ur just
Avoidin' addin' 2 the real shit
that's happening 2 us

It takes more 2 amuse a girl like me
So much more 2 confuse a girl like me
They got us cos while u're braggin
bout ur badness ur just
Avoidin' addin' 2 the real shit
that's happening 2 us

    General CommentThis is one of the best artists too come out for a long time , all the crap that has been coming out (meaningless bling bling ) has really made hip hop look manufactured. I hope people start coming from the soul with hip hop once again . When i get my mr2 im going to get a good system and blast this cd :) .

    General Comment"Your talking like you a G/But you are killer killing your own/Your just a racist man's pussy"
    Damn...Go on wit yo bad self girl. I think what hip-hop has become is definitely not what it should be. This song describes perfectly everything that went wrong with the entire genre. There are obviously good artists out there, but all the public wants to consume is the same carbon copy shit. Her entire album is amazing and very socially conscious. I'm glad she's finally come over the pond to us here in the US.

    General CommentMiss dynamite is amazing. Got her album in 2002 and I still play it all the time. She is apparently bringing out a new album this year, in the U.K anyway. Can't wait!!!

    General CommentYeah I love Ms Dynamite. You would never believe from hearing her sing how little and squeaky her speaking voice is though!
