"High Definition" as written by Calvin Broadus, Al Shuckburgh, Wasalu Jaco and Jason / Boyd....
Gather round go ahead and stare
These street folk don't need permission, my life's in high definition
Listen with your eyes follow with your ears
I don't need no intermission my life's in high definition


And my return, is more like a re-up
I hold a hold like a tea-cup
World in one hand, while the other hand throw the peace up
My other hand throwing "WE" without the "E" up
I got like five more man I'm something like Shiva
In the Fall of Rome number four Deluxe
See I've been around the world like the gnome
But i come from a zone where the homes are beat up
The folks unknown and the stones all meet up
Police tap my phones got my songs on speaker
Said he's back to poems got their domes all geeked up (?)
To get up on they thrones and become young leaders
Oprah put it on my culture now if that ain't wrong
Imus got it from the rhymers now if that ain't blown
They gave my man forty four now if that ain't long
I put it all on my shoulders now if that ain't strong
I made it out alive from the streets of the west side C-H-I
Now if that ain't home you better tell 'em


Gather round go ahead and stare
These street folk don't need permission, my life's in high definition
listen with your eyes follow with your ears
I don't need no intermission my life's in high definition


And in my flyness I've become the hero and the sidekick
The rider and the nigga that'll ride with
In your ear like the maker of the Vivrant
As-Salaam Alaikum to the maker of the Vivrant
Them other niggas i don't vibe with
Now i was 'bout three when the eyes went
But i could see everything that you trying to be
You can't hide it
While you coming out your throats like a Heimlich
I came up out the belly like a high script
Only my circumstance revised it
Hijacked the road and when they shot the pilot
I'm trying to go public so i can get the private
Then send Bizzy to go and get the pirates
Then hit Africa try to fix the Virus
Go back to the hood tell Huggy open the hydrants
R.I.P Stack B. I'ma keep you alive kid
Dressed in something so fresh and wonderful
F-N-F and S-N double O-P


Gather round go a-head and stare
These street folk don't need permission, my life's in high definition
Listen with your eyes follow with your ears
I don't need no intermission my life's in high definition


Lupe its snoopy, let's go out
Tip toe through the door, do it doggy style
And tell all my chicks in CHI-I-CAGO
Lupe hit the Lotto, Snoopy hit the bottle
Dolemite tight, they bite, they might follow
Take this chill pill, li'l nigga, make you swallow
Recital is very homicidal
The big screen will capture you, cause it's hi-definition
Listen cooking collard greens in the kitchen
Them alphabet boys on a mission
If you out to get cash you better get it quick fast
Cause now-a-days niggas get to snitching on your bitch ass
Even your boys best believe in your toys out your game
Specially when a nigga know your real name
Blam blam with the blammer
Smile nephew you on candid camera, film at eleven
Dressed in something so fresh and wonderful
F-N-F and S-N double O-P


Gather round go ahead and stare
These street folk don't need permission, my life's in high definition
Listen with your eyes follow with your ears
I don't need no intermission, my life's in high definition

    My Interpretationi really like this song, especially when he says "hijacked the road and went and shot the pilot". It sounds like he's saying he already has the people that are "down to earth" and is trying to guide the people on the plane because the pilot is steering them in the wrong direction

    General CommentGregor - I believe he is referring to the "Roaming Gnome", one of the mascots for Travelosity.

    He is a monster.

    General Commentyea...snoops verse sounds like this to me:
    "...Dolemite tight, they bite, (they/and?) might follow.."
    then "take this chill pill, lil nigga, swallow.."

    dont usually like snoops verses when he's featured but this ones aight... and, lol, he's talkin abt T.I. and his lil situaion right?
    "Cause now-a-days niggas get to snitching on your bitch ass
    Even your boys best believe in your toys out your game
    Specially when a nigga know your real name"

    Haha Snoop Dogg really messed up on his flow there. I like Lupe's Verses but he can do better, and all together I don't really like the song. I don't like the chorus by Pooh Bear and I don't really like Snoop Dogg as a rapper. Still better than most of the garbage you see on tv nowadays though.
