Burn Hollywood burn I smell a riot Goin' on first htey're guilty now they're gone Yeah I'll check out a movie But it'll take a black one to move me Get me the hell away from this TV All this news and views are beneath me So all I hear about is shots ringin' out About gangs puttin' each others head out So I rather kick some slang out All right fellas let's go hand out Hollywood or would they not Make us all look bad like I know they had But some things I'll never forget yeah So step and fetch this shit For all the years we looked like clowns The joke is over smell the smoke from all around
Burn Hollywood burn
Ice cube is down with the P.E. Now every single bitch wanna see me Big daddy is smooth word to mother Let's check out a flick that exploits the color Roamin' through Hollywood late at night Red and blue lights what a common sight Pulled to the curb gettin' played like a sucker Don't fight the power the mother fucker
As I walk the streets of Hollywood boulevard Thinin' how hard it was to those that starred In the movies portrayin' the roles Of butlers and maids slaves and hoes Many intelligent black men seemed to look uncivilized When on the screen Like a guess I figure you to play some jigaboo On the plantation, what else can a nigga do And black women in this profession As for playin' a lawyer, out of the question For what they play aunt Jemima is the perfect term Even if now she got a perm So let's make our own movies like Spike Lee 'Cause the roles being offered don't strike me There's nothing that the black man could use to earn Burn Hollywood burn

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
