Intro Lyrics

Somebody's pulling me closer to the ground
I ain't panicked, I been here before
Seems like only yesterday when I got up on that stage
In front of that crowd
And showed them who was who, and what was what
Man look at these suckers
I ain't no rapper, I'm a hustler
It just so happens that I know how to rap
Okay, I'm reloaded!

I did it again niggas
Fucked up, right? I know
I know what y'all niggas asking yourself
Is he gonna ever fall off?

A lot of speculation
On the monies I've made, honeys I've slayed
How is he for real? Is that nigga really paid?
Hustlers I've met or, dealt with direct
Is it true he slay the beef and slept with a tech?
What's the position you hold? Can you really match
A triple platinum artist buck by buck by only a single goin gold?
Roc-A-Fella ship fold, and you're left out in the cold
Is it back to charging motherfuckers 11 for an O
For the millionth time askin me
Questions like Wendy Williams, harassing me
Then get upset when I catch feelings
Can I get a minute to breathe? And in that minute you leave
While I'm looking at my Rol' ice spinning on my sleeve
Uh, nice watch, do you really have a spot?
Like you said in Friend or Foe and if so, what block?
What you doing in L.A., with Filipinos and ese's
Latinos and Cheve's, down by Pico with Frederico
I answer all your questions but then y'all got to go
Now the question I ask you is how bad you want to know? blow!

Roc-A-Fella y'all, uh
Know my style

Motherfuckers can't rhyme no more, bout crime no more
Til I'm no more, cause I'm so raw
My flow expose holes that they find in yours
Wasn't for me, niggas still be dying for whores
But I hate when a nigga sit back, admiring yours
Young blood you better get that, we frying baccars
Niggaz don't want to be confined to riding the iron horse
And don't listen to the rappers, they dying to floss
I used to be O.T., applying the force
Shoot up the whole block, then the iron I toss
Come back with the click playing Diana Ross
I'm the boss and this is how it's gonna be
Burnt the turnpike, wild miles on the V
I got mouths to feed till they put flowers on me
And kiss my cold cheek, chicks crying like I was Cochise
Tombstone read 'He Was Holdin No Leaks'
Started from the crack game and then so sweet
Freaked it to the rap game, Jigga the old-G
On MTV, telling em how I sold D
And used to back work up out of apartment 4-B
Me and my homie, started out coldies
Picked the mailbox lock cause I ain't have no key
Had the cable with the anchor when Jaz made 'Sophie'
Then I went low key, but now I'm back it's on
Jigga, uh-huh, yeah
Roc-A-Fella y'all
Uhh, feel this

  • This track introduces American Gangster, Jay-Z's first concept album, which was inspired by the 2007 crime movie of the same name. The rapper had been invited to an advanced screening of the film and it had a profound resonance on him; Hova would play it on the monitors above the recording booth to keep him inspired.
  • The song features dialogue excerpts from the American Gangster movie, spoken by Denzel Washington.
  • This was co-produced by British actor Idris Elba, whose roles include Russell "Stringer" Bell in HBO's The Wire and Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Elba started out working as a DJ in clubs in the 1990s and is also known as Driis or Big Driis to his rapper and DJ friends.

    F.U.T.W. Lyrics

    Just let me be great, let me be great
    I feel like mothafuckin' Cassius Clay right now, Genius!
    Don't be good my nigga, be great
    After that government cheese, we eating steak
    After the projects, now we on estates
    I'm from the bottom, I know you can relate

    Fuck up the world
    Let's fuck up this world
    Fuck up the world
    Me and destiny got a date

    Martin had a dream, Hov got a team
    My chain already heavy, don't let me get a ring
    Parades down Flatbush, Confetti on my fur
    Turn right in Red Hook, niggas heavy on the curb
    See most my niggas died early twenties or late teens
    I'm just trying to come from under the thumb of this regime
    1% of a billion more than niggas ever seen
    Still they wanna act like it's an everyday thing, clean

    Fuck up this world
    Fuck up this world
    Fuck up this world
    Fuck up the uh

    High Yellow sky dweller and the rose gold
    Legend of the summer in the Rose Bowl
    Came through Pasadena in the low low
    Just to show respect to the cholos
    Feelin' like a stranger in my own land
    Got me feeling like Brody in Homeland
    I just want a shot to show my genius
    Standing on the top hold my penis
    America tried to emasculate the greats
    Murder Malcolm, gave Cassius the shakes
    Wait, tell them rumble young man rumble
    Try to dim your lights tell you be humble
    You know I'm gon shine like a trillion watts
    You know a nigga trill as Michael Jackson socks
    Sendin' light out to Compton and the hundred blocks
    Lil bastard boy, basking on top

    Fuck up this world
    Let's fuck up this world
    Let's fuck up the world
    Let's fuck up this world
    Fuck up the uh

    Sipping D'USSE boy this ain't your daddy yak
    He in a Cadillac; me? I'm in the Maybach
    This ain't grey sweat suits and white tube socks
    This is black leather pants and a pair of Stance
    Socks is my synopsis is clear
    Got stripclubs feeling like Oxford, I swear
    Teacher teacher, I'm trying to unteach ya
    All the shit they taught y'all, they got you all in the bleachers
    When you front row at the Knicks game, those the Spike Lees
    You front row everywhere, you in the H.O.V.'s
    Jordan 1's and dungarees
    And that's just the half of my warpath
    Make a million another million let my niggas make a million
    'til we all check a billion, shit it's just the way I'm feeling
    We have yet to see a ceiling, we just top what we top
    Cause the bars don't struggle and the struggle don't stop

    Let's fuck up this world
    Let's fuck up this world
    Let's fuck up the world
    Let's fuck up the world
    Let's fuck up the world
    Fuck up this world

  • The song title stands for 'F--k Up This World.' It finds Jay spitting about rising from nothing referencing along the way such African-American icons as Martin Luther King, Spike Lee and Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali 's "slave name").
  • Jay namechecks Damian Lewis' character Brody from the US drama Homeland when he raps: "Feel like a stranger in my own land. Got me feeling like Brody on Homeland..." Speaking to Esquire, Lewis said about Hova's reference: "It's one of the coolest things that's ever happened to me. My natural habitat is quite a long way from, you know, a gangster rapper. So the fact I've somehow straddled popular culture to find myself name checked... From the RSC... To the Jay Z."

    '03 Bonnie And Clyde Lyrics

    Look for me, Young, B
    Cruisin' down the west-side, highway
    Doing what we like to do, our way
    Eyes behind shades, this necklace the reason
    All of my dates been blind dates
    But today I got my thoroughest girl wit' me
    I'm mashin' the gas, she's grabbin' the wheel; it's true to the heart
    She rides with me--the new Bobby and Whitney
    Only time we don't speak is during "Sex and the City"
    She gets Carrie fever, but soon as the show is over
    She's right back to being my soldier
    'Cause mami's a rider and I'm a roller
    Put us together--how they gon' stop both us?
    Whatever she lacks, I'm right over her shoulder
    When I'm off track, mami is keepin' me focused
    So let's lock this down like it's supposed to be
    The '03 Bonnie And Clyde, Hov' and B

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    The problem is you dudes treat the one that you lovin'
    With the same respect that you treat the one that you humpin'
    Dat ain't 'bout nothin
    If ever you mad about somethin', it won't be that, oh no, it won't be that
    I don't be at places where we comfy at
    With no be-atch; oh no, you won't see that
    And, no, I ain't perfect; nobody walkin' this earth's surface is
    But, girlfriend, work with the kid
    I keep you workin' at Hermes, Birkin' bag
    Manolo Blahnik, Timbs, aviator lens
    600 drops, Mercedes Benz
    The only time you wear Burberry to swim
    And I don't have to worry--only worry is him
    She'd do anything necessary for him
    And I'd do anything necessary for her
    So don't let the necessary occur, yup


    (Talk to 'em, B)
    If I was your girlfriend
    I'll be there for you if somebody hurts you
    Even if the somebody was me
    (Break it down for 'em, B)
    Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be
    And so I put this on my life
    Nobody or nothing will ever come between us
    And I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend
    Put this on my life
    The air that I breathe in, all that I believe in
    I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend

    '03 Bonnie And Clyde
  • This is based on a 1996 song by Tupac called "Me And My Girlfriend." Some lyrics in the chorus came from Mariah Carey's 1999 song "How Much," which was also based on Tupac's "Me And My Girlfriend." (thanks, Donovan Berry - El Dorado, AR)
  • Bonnie and Clyde were Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. They went on a crime spree in 1932, committing several robberies and killing an estimated 13 people along the way. After a famous manhunt, they were killed by police in 1934. Their story was made into a movie in 1967 starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The film glorified their story and created the image of Bonnie and Clyde as a romantic couple rebelling from authority.
  • Beyoncé sings on this with Jay-Z - it was their first collaboration. She was the most prominent member of the group Destiny's Child, and was getting ready for a solo album after a prominent role in the movie Austin Powers in Goldmember. Kelly Rowland, her bandmate in Destiny's Child, had a huge hit when she teamed up with Nelly for the song "Dilemma." Joining an established rap star was a great way to launch a solo career at the time, as the airways were flooded with hits featuring a male rapper doing the verses and a female singer coming in for the hook. Most of these involved either Ja Rule or Ashanti.
  • Beyoncé and Jay-Z were a real couple at the time, although they kept coy about their relationship. Over the next few years, they were seen in public more and more, and it became apparent that they were an item. This song marks the first clues that they are dating, as Jay declares them "the new Bobby and Whitney" (referring to the happier times of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's love affair) and raps, "Only time we don't speak is during Sex and the City."
  • Most of the video was filmed in Tijuana using a real Mexican police force.
  • Some of Beyoncé's lyrics were taken from the Prince song "If I Was Your Girlfriend."
