LL Cool J - The Boomin' System lyrics

Your rating:
Just kick a little something for them cars that be bumpin

 Yeah aight
 But we need a beat that they can front to
 Oh  that'll work
 Be funky
 You know what I'm sayin?

 (Cars ride by with the boomin systems)
 (Cars ride by)

 For all the cars out there
 And all the brothers
 That like to front in their rides
 Check it out

 You know it's funky  funky  funky cos you heard it from hear-say
 A jam that you love that don't be gettin no airplay
 Strictly for frontin when you're ridin around
 12 o'clock at night with your windows down
 Headlights breakin cos your batteries drain
 Armor all on your tires and a big gold chain
 Parkin outside of all the hip-hop spots
 Push the E-Q and play connect the dots
 Leanin to the side, people everywhere
 The trunk full of amps, there ain't no room for a spare
 Big beats bumpin with the bass in back
 All the sophisticated suckers catch a heart attack
 Cos they don't understand why I act this way
 Pumpin up the funky beat until the break of day
 It's because I want attention when i'm ridin by
 And the girls be on my jock cos my system's fly

 Girlies wanna ride with a brother like me
 Cos they be hear me gettin funky frequently
 They tell me don't drink and drive, I say what is this
 Mind your business
 Now pass it around
 Laid back, hypnotized by the funky sound
 People in the street see me bobbin my head
 While I'm checkin out the rapper and the rhyme that he said
 I'm frontin, and I don't care if you know
 The backseat of my car is like a disco show
 You would think I was a good friend of Al Capone
 Crazy air freshener, who needs cologne
 Bottom to the bottom to the top to the top
 Cruise - it's 3 o'clock
 The girlies, they smile, they see me comin
 I'm steady hummin, I got the Funky Drummer drummin
 My trunk be shakin, vibratin and rattlin
 Pumpin so loud, all the shorties be battlin
 A right-hand man's here without the swing
 Every chance I get I'm showin off my rings
 I can keep it up until the break of dawn
 Cos I'm frontin in my ride and my word is bond

 Sun roof open, so I can feel the wind blow
 I don't give a damn if it cracks my back window
 C to the o to the o to the l to the i to the n
 To the f to the r to the o to the n to the t to the i to the n
 That means I'm chillin
 Like Spoonie Gee said, my seats are soft like a bed
 They recline way back, so I can get real cosy
 I got the gangster tapes in the place
 Like a basehead would say: I want bass
 I want a hit, I want a dose
 You're rollin up smilin, but you can't come close
 Cos my system is pumpin loud
 Like Rakim said: I wanna move the crowd
 I warm it up with Kane, fight the power with PE
 Tell the cops: you gots to chill with EPMD
 This is something devastatin that'll break your trunk
 And remember, Uncle L is like the future of the funk

 You know what i'm sayin
 So next time you're in your ride pumpin it up
 Just remember
 It's Cool
