Jo Rida

Yo, Jo Rida here. I just want to take a second to pay tribute to something that's had a really strong effect on my life. I ain't playin' with this. It's a movie, maybe you saw it. It's called Ratatouille


Who says you'll never be a cook in this town,
They put you down, couldn't smile until you learned to frown
They spun you round, even when your soup was astounding they're hounding you
Till they found you then they're pounding you into the ground


Now you know I don't come to you pitchin
A crazy idea that puts me with you inside of the kitchen
Remy I just look look up to you, through and through it's the truth
I'm scared I'll never be happy like you are when you finish your stew


And that angry chef, he doesn't scare me, he's preparin me
For the crazy mixed up madness that in life is a guarantee
And I know if you were standin aside of me you'd take pride in me
'Cause I'm livin' the vision you spent your life trying to see

And Remy you know better than me,
About the times in life when it's gettting hard to see
What the future is layin out in front of me, I say it loud I'm the one to beat
Like you were proud of your recipes when the crowd said admit defeat



Ratatouille, Ratatouille, small stature but big dreams,
As I watch it on the screen,
I see that little mouse named Remy sounds a lot like me


Ratatouille, Ratatouille, I don't know where I'd be
If I never watched it through
Never know what I can do
But it shined a light on me



I'm always tryin' to be risin' up to you sizin up to you,
But there be times I won't lie when I'm despisin you
I hate the way you pretend that it's not that bad
You always step out of the way and say life's not so sad

I have dreams I'm in your kitchen running and screaming, tossing things
Everywhere, like I just don't care, take your Ratatuoille throw it in the air
Screaming that life isn't fair, and you're never there,
To tell me that there are things in life I need to bear


Is it weird the reason I deplore you is also why I adore you
And you know you're the reason that I endure too
But this ain't no ballad bout salad, this is real life
That's why you know I be working so hard to get it right

Sometimes when I'm alone I sit and I think
Is there anyone who looks up to me, whose life's on the brink?
And it is moments like these that I pretend I'm you
And suddenly I get up and know just what I have to do



Ratatouille, Ratatouille, small stature but big dreams,
As I watch it on the screen,
I see that little mouse named Remy sounds a lot like me


Ratatouille, Ratatouille, I don't know where I'd be
If I never watched it through
Never know what I can do
But it shined a light on me

A-Boy
Jo Rida calls me up, yo be over at three
I say what's goin' down bro? He says Rapatouille
No, you couldn't possibly mean
A song about the greatest film my eyes ever have seen

It was simple but divine like Tarzan and Jane
The most important movie ever, fuck Citizen Kane
It changed my life forever, and it will fix yours too
Reminds me of Dennis Franz joining NYPD Blue

See before I knew Remy I was down in the dumps
Like I was boxin Mke tyson, I just took life's slums
But that rodent, he inspired me to greatness
So now I love livin', and I don't care if you hate this

I won't let the differences divide us if we're human or rat
No matter how much I'm scared, with newcomers I will chat
Pat and Oswald gave you voice, but this rap gives you meaning
Pixar Ratatouille, I owe you my whole being


Ratatouille, Ratatouille, small stature but big dreams,
As I watch it on the screen,
I see that little mouse named Remy sounds a lot like me

Ratatouille, Ratatouille, I don't know where I'd be
If I never watched it through
Never know what I can do
But it shined a light on me
