Katie Tropp – Hip Hop Is My Soul Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I remember when I was eight years old
I picked up my first tape started breaking the mold
It was Salt N Pepa who first put hip hop in my soul
And it just took off from there I was addicted to the flow
Next I picked up Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise,”
Got me hooked on West Coast shit for the rest of my life
Then that “California Love” with Pac and Dre
Was burning up my head phones each and everyday!
As soon as I heard them I was blown away
I couldn’t stop listening I knew every word to “Live and Die In LA,”
Then I started bumping that NWA shit
“Straight Outta Compton” was in my daily rotation
Ice Cube was the man with his gangsta flow
Dr. Dre had the beats that were out of control
Eazy E, MC Ren, Yella completed the flow
And this is where it started with hip hop in my soul!

[Chorus]

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!

[Verse 2]

“The Chronic 2001” and “Slim Shady LP,”
Were two of the most influential CD’s out there for me
One of my all time faves is “Still D.R.E.”
And “Forgot About Dre” with Eminem I knew everything
Now let’s talk about my boy Eminem for a minute
I was hooked on this dude from the very beginning
You could feel the anger in his voice in “The Way I Am,”
No matter what people think I still listen to “Kim,”
Ice Cube is the shit one of my all time favorites
No matter what anybody says he’s one of the greatest
His flows are tight and he always keeps it gangsta
You can still feel him in his latest “Laugh Now, Cry Later,”
Don’t think I forgot about that Snoop Doggy Dogg
“Ain’t Nuthin But “G” Thang” is a classic ass song
He had us sippin on “Gin n Juice” speaking double dutch
He’s the mother f**ker who taught me how to smoke a blunt!

[Chorus]

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!

[Verse 3]

I hate when people say that rap isn’t music
Because they’re all wrong just open up your ears stupid
You obviously ain’t ever heard a f**kin’ lyric
If you listen to Public Enemy there’s a message you can’t hear it?
And what about “God’s Son” Nasty Nas
Had his beef with Jay-Z until they both grew up
He’s got a message for all of you in everyone of his songs
But it ain’t his fault that your mind is shut off
That dude T.I. coming from the dirty south
He gets better with every single CD that he puts out
It’s too bad he’s getting locked up for now
But you know he’ll still be King as soon as he gets out
I could go on forever about how much I love this shit
Just because I didn’t mention you doesn’t mean I forget
Almost everyone in rap is some sort of influence
And I’m damn proud of that so I throw up my fist!

[Chorus]

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!

Hip hop is my soul
I don’t care what they say
I’ma turn my music up
Smoke weed everyday
Say ‘f**k The Police’ like NWA!
