"HI-808"

[Intro]
808 808 808 80
808 808 808 80

[Verse 1]
And I came with an accent, I said, "howzit?"
Surrounded by town folk who clowned it
Why? cause I'm fresh off an island
Miles from the 6 with a smile and a childhood
Raised from bowels of military housing
The place that I grew, mo' slippers than shoes
Bunch of fools sitting wishin' in school
With a principal who never saw no talent
Dreamt of a crib like `Iolani Palace
Pre-Lili`uokalani legendary status
Every hand grabbin' for the sky like Jimmy
"Superfly" Snuka and in his prime f*ck a lime light
Gimme sunshine and mic and I'm fine
Life been defined by nights under skies
Next to the line where the sea meet land
Got both feet planted in the sand
Like damn bra I've been missing all that, so I had to go back to the island like that
And now it's flash forward on a track gotta liberate my people
Like Haunani-Kay Trask
Breathin' a breeze when I ease way back in a jeep
With the top and the seats lay flat
Yeah I got heat cause every time I speak
I keep burning like a haole on a beach, why?

[Chorus]
It's the 808 love
Like '88 playing tapes, bass in the trunk
It's the 808 kick
That sh*t's so sick it makes your heartbeat skip
Like this
It's the 808 love
Like '88 playing tapes, bass in the trunk
It's the 808 kick
That sh*t's so sick it makes your heartbeat skip
Like this

[Verse 2]
I raise hell when I blaze well
And we made next door feel sorta like Blaisdell
And I came directly from the place
Seen a whole lotta homes erased
Faced with a ice epidemic so large it'll put global warming on pause
Warning all frauds
No its not a walk on the beach so
Don't come thinking sh*t is sweeter than a sugarcane tree
Cause when a beat drops bra
Don't blame me and now you wanna curse like Interstate-3
News flash j*rk! Hawai`i ain't free
And I vowed on the day I became an MC
Never not say what I made to speak from
The same rock Barack walked and breathed
It be the smoke signals from them wowee trees
And more In4mation is what we need
If you ever came up rocking Swap Meet tees
Or you stay havin' red stains under your feet
In a spot this hot everybody stay cool
Peace to the crew I'm a Light Sleeper too
Late night wonder under the moon
I got hot sex on a platter for two
And yes I'm talking to you miss 808 love
The best damn place on the world to wake up!

[Chorus]
It's the 808 love
Like '88 playing tapes, bass in the trunk
It's the 808 kick
That sh*t's so sick it makes your heartbeat skip
Like this
It's the 808 love
Like '88 playing tapes, bass in the trunk
It's the 808 kick
That sh*t's so sick it makes your heartbeat skip
