It's the return of the gangsta thanks ta'
Them niggas that's on that blow
That run up in yo' crib which contains
Your lady and an 8 month old
Child to raise plus you true blue 'bout this music but
They do not want to hear it because they'd
Rather be bouncin' and shootin' and killin' and bouncin'
And shit get down

Return of the gangsta thanks ta'
Them niggas that thank you soft
And say y'all be gospel rappin'
But they be steady clappin' when you talk about
Bitches and switches and hoes and clothes and weed
Let's talk about time travelin' rhyme javelin
Somethin' mind unravelin' get down

Return of the gangsta thanks ta'
Them niggas who got them kids
Who got enough to buy an ounce
But not enough to bounce them kids to the zoo
Or to the park so they grow up in the dark never
Seein' light so they end up being like yo' sorry ass
Robbin' niggas in broad ass daylight get down

Return of the gangsta thanks ta'
Them niggas that get the wrong impression of expression
Then the question is Big Boi what's up with Andre?
Is he in a cult? Is he on drugs? Is he gay?
When y'all gon' break up? When y'all goin' wake up?
Nigga I'm feelin' better than ever what's wrong with you
You get down!

Man a nigga don't want no trouble
A player just want to kick back with my gators off
And watch my li'l Gull blow bubbles
But still ready to rhyme
Standin' my ground never back down
Willin' to rob steal & kill any thing that threatens mine
But good luck couldn't be bought see
Many a fights had to be fought G
For a nigga to ride these Vogues
Oh so close to the sidewalk to be gawked at
Watch your side my nigga 'cause we got gats
The first nigga to buck goin' be the first nigga we attack
Don't want that but it comes though
Most of the time you don't know
Stickin' together like flour and water to make that
Slow dough we worked for everything we have
And goin' stick up for each other like we
Brothers from another mother
Kinda like Mel Gibson and Danny Glover
Strictly for the Caddy lovers and never the
Nut huggin' punk motherfuckers

    General Commenta fairly scathing commentary about people who think you have to be hard to write raps, and think only gangsta rap is worth listening to. the song suggests that lame-ass gangsta wannabes can't understand what outkast is rapping about and think that the group is soft. but the last verse by big boi lets them know that he is still ready to throw down to protect what's his. an on-point indictment of the sad state of rap music.

    General CommentWithout really getting into the lyrics, I will just say that this was the first song of Outkast's that I actually sat down and listened to, and really turned me on to them... Between Aquemini and ATliens, they really went deep into some subjects that most rappers wouldn't even touch... And that's what I love em for... But, on the topic of this song, it is just real real nice. And the production on it? Woooo... That beat hits, and it just goes with the subject of the song real well.
    My favorite line? "lets talk about time travelin, rhyme javelin, somethin mind unravelin, GET DOWN!" - cause it takes this esoteric approach, like let's talk about something more than what a lot of other artists were rapping about at the time...
    but uh... yeah :)

    General CommentDamn good song, just a small correction on the lyrics, I think in the beginning it's "everytime I try to get a peace of mind". I could be wrong though.

    General Commentafter ATLiens, Outkast were portrayed as a tough guy(Big Boi) and a freak (Andre), which they didn't like. Andre would later say, in an interview with Muzik magazine, that his most hated misconception about Outkast is "that Big Boi's a thug and I'm crazy."
