Street Sweeper Social Club - Ghetto Blaster Lyrics




[Boots Riley]
Listen to the, shotgun sonata from personas non grata
With a plot to rock harder than the secta intafada
I do, drink firewater but I'm more like Hiawatha
and will slaughter, slaughter, slaughter, your armada
Inform your scholars that our alma mater's squalor
So my squad'll pull your collar at your black-and-white gala
We're canon fodder for dollars both under Bush and Obama
I'm not a baller I'm a brawler callin y'all to come harder

[Chorus]
And I'm a Ghetto Blaster
Cause I'm a Ghetto Blaster
See I'm a Ghetto Blaster
I'm a ghetto, I'm a ghetto, I'm a ghetto, I'm a Ghetto Blaster!!!

[Boots Riley]
I'm from the land o' the free labor that planted the plan of the
black-and-branded to scram it over to Canada
A fan of radical bandits and bandanas
who slammed in the banana clip and rat-a-tat-tat-tatted-a
They spat the grammar to scam y'all to clamor up
The damn ladder to grab for Excalibur
Not a rap battler, but the next calibre
Catch the program and not just my pentameter

[Chorus]

[Interlude]
PULL THE TRIGGER!
C'mon and help me out!
Said help me out!
Need y'all to help me out!
C'mon and help me out!
Help me out!
C'mon and help me out!
Need y'all to help me out!
Help me out!

[Boots Riley]
Cause I'm a Ghetto Blaster
Yeah I'm a Ghetto Blaster
I'm a Ghetto Blaster
I'm a ghetto, I'm a ghetto, I'm a ghetto, I'm a Ghetto Blaster!!!
I'm a Ghetto Blaster [3X]
I'm a ghetto, I'm a ghetto, I'm a Ghetto Blaster motherfucker!

    themcclanaclan

    sick lyricist

  3. George Jones

    Holy shit, that first verse

  4. Dùbhghlas MacDùbhghlas

    Sorry grew up listening to RATM. So the natural progression would be RATM then SSSC and every thing in between. And I believe RATM is better known than SSSC is.

  5. Dùbhghlas MacDùbhghlas

    Then what fucking rock have you been living under.

  6. Farah Tamanna

    Yes. I'm aware, thanks. You asked if I had ever HEARD of RATM - so I said no. I only found out about them after I had heard of SSSC and looked up Tom Morello.

  7. Dùbhghlas MacDùbhghlas

    Rage against the Machine done it before SSC....

  8. Dùbhghlas MacDùbhghlas

    So you never heard of Rage against the Machine......

  9. Aaron Bowen

    thats probably because tom morello plays for SSSC lol

  10. Bammeaxel

    Try Rage against the machine. And take the power (in your ears) back.

  11. dbt79

    ratm :]

  12. Chuck Norris

    there's a very, very good reason for that.

  13. jack haw

    KUNT MUFFENS

  14. Ian Zink

    @qwerty123102
    Agreed, Didnt realize that Tom Morello was the guitarist from rage =[ im sorry world! lol

  15. qwerty123102

    @Izthrower you are retarded

  16. Ian Zink

    @farahtales Ever try Rage Against the Machine? Cuz SSSC reminds me of them.

  17. lolismful

    Fuck yea!

  18. kingsinspace

    rage as hell!!nice..

  19. lasloacosta

    rocks like a MF

  20. Mystic Voyager

    @Bullshavick1 :-) hell yeah !

  21. Ferrel B

    @fukt0p go ratm

  22. Mystic Voyager

    @farahtales i can relate to what you say ... I'm not fond of any particular genre but fuck this bang is good ... of course the fact of tom morello being in it has a lot to do with it !

  23. Pete Peteh

    @farahtales music doesn't get much MORE bad ass, but there's other bad ass bands just like this for someone who doesn't like much music try these out if you want bad asst: Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, L7, Mother Love Bone, Mad Season (the songs Lifeless Dead and I Don't Know Anything)

    Daniel Droege

    Pete Peteh I also like rise against and system of a down

  24. rollie4

    i like this, but my god do i miss zachs attutude and lyrical power in songs with good beats

  25. Patrick Bateman

    First verse is easily one of the best things Boots has ever written.

  26. Intelligible Comments = Impossible

    I can't wait for their next album... they sure seem to have improved from their first album. That's not easy to one-up their first album, it was pretty good, but this is just amazing. I'm ashamed I didn't learn about this band until earlier this year.

  27. rush2795

    @NetxEnigma tom morello is the guitarist for both bands

  28. Jeff Zakrevsky

    @NetxEnigma Could have something to do with the fact that it's Rage's guitarist. Haha.

  29. NetxEnigma

    I Like It...sounds like Rage against the Machine

  30. Peter Appleton

    @Polkader14 Jon Theodore isn't in Mars Volta anymore :D but the rest of what you said would be epic!

  31. andrea poli

    GREAT JOB SSSC!!!!

  32. marq237

    My favorite track off the album. Killer riff and energy. Boots' lyrics are sick and Tom's Shredding is fuckin off the chain. Enuff said.

  33. Suq Madiq

    GLOBAL SLAVE REVOLT 2011

    LONG LIVE THE MOTHAFUCKIN RESISTANCE

  34. Farah Tamanna

    @KurtCobainof21 ah, no wonder. yeah, that's probably my fave bolly song - the lyrics are just so beautiful.

  35. KurtCobainof21

    @farahtales Yea i saw a bollywood vid on your page of Dil Se...

  36. Farah Tamanna

    @KurtCobainof21 nah not indian. but south asian heritage, yeah. and it's dudette, lol

  37. Andrew Bagley

    SSSC and RATM playing at the same show would be nuts.

  38. KurtCobainof21

    @farahtales Dude are Indian? Curious thats all

  39. FunkFight1

    @ExileMCR I guess I'm a fool because I believe what Tom says in interviews and what it says about him on Wikipedia. His father is Black, from Kenya in fact. Tom's great uncle was Jomo Kenyatta- the first president of Kenya. His last name is Morello because he grew up with his mother, Mary Morello. He is Black, just as much as Lenny Kravitz or Halle Berry or Obama is Black. Stop talkin about shit that you are too lazy to even read about.

  40. ExileMCR

    @FunkFight1 he isnt black fool. hes of italian descent

  41. FunkFight1

    @DingleberrySmurf Morello went to Harvard on an academic scholarship. Meaning he needed help to pay for college. Not rich at the time. Got in due to grades.

  42. FunkFight1

    @DingleberrySmurf Dear Stupid Fuckface, Tom Morello attended public school his whole life, was poor due to being raised by a single mother who supported them only on her measly salary from being a public High School teacher. He might not know ghetto, but was the only Black person in a little racist Illinois town with swasticas and nooses drawn on his house. Boots Riley is from the ghetto and still lives there: in Oakland, CA. Both"punks" would probably kick ur ass, individually or collectively.

  43. Pepper

    Montage - total musical montage!

  44. Dylan B

    this is a kick ass song

  45. Med

    Punch! it's Street Sweeper Social Club !

  46. Taylor George

    Boots is a lyrical genius. Not only now it goes all the way back to his The Coup days - listen to his words. He reminds me of Grandmaster Flash but better. His words are thoughtful - intelligent - and he rips it up!

  47. Ashley Dufault

    Sounds very cool!

  48. matherleug

    Do you have lyrics?

  49. matherleug

    Do you have lyrics?

  50. Dara McKeagney

    I think the whole band complements eachother perfectly

  51. F1brawfa

    NEW RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE WHAT THE FUC K

  52. F1brawfa

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

  53. dragracedude1

    the intro had me a little worried but when boots comes in its fuggin tight

  54. Kingopersia

    the most notable thing SSSC brings to the table is the guitar...the singing is ok but they really shine with Morello's guitaring

  55. Farah Tamanna

    Rap isn't my genre... neither is rock... I'm a "passive listener" who listens to anything that's on... don't have a passion for any one genre - till now! SSSC is beyond fabulous, I can't believe I've found a group about whom I adore everything so randomly (featured video)! Woo! Long live the SSSC! Music doesn't get more bad-ass than this.

  56. KronikalPineapple

    I'm gonna buy this album tomorrow :D
