​Clap For The Killers

This song is by Street Sweeper Social Club and appears on the Compilation NINJA 2009 Tour Sampler (2009) and on the album Street Sweeper Social Club (2009).

Original video
Now can you clap for the killers?
Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers
Double up for them gangsters

Well I wrote this for criminals
But all of y'all should listen at me
Now if you ever catch me snitchin'
Just haul off and slap me

They on the other team
"Let's rumble," is my thoughts exactly
They work for gangsters
And they whacked Fred Hampton Jr.'s pappy

Ay playboy, pop 'em with a pistol and get executed
Ay mama, murder 'em with missiles and you get saluted
Go 'head and gank em for a grand, it's DNA computed
But bankers bathe in the Bahamas off of billions looted

Now can you clap?
Now can you clap?

Now can you clap for them killers?
Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers
Double up for them gangsters

Well I wrote this for criminals
But they the ones who wrote the laws
They ain't on TV gettin' arrested
All up in their draws

They stick their hands up politicians
Make 'em move their jaws
And they be starving folks for bread
Until their breath pause

Ay take a memo Moneypenny, say the deed is done
And you can bcc DC and say our leaders won
But first we fax the photograph of the opponents son
Adjust the image, 'cause it's hard to see the gag and gun

Now can you clap?
Now can you clap?
Now can you clap?
Now can you clap?

Now can you clap for them killers?
Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers
Double up for them gangsters

Well I wrote this for gangsters
While I sprinted through your backyard
Not for them Coppola criminals, they just act hard
Tony Montana had a stylist and a SAG card
When he reloaded slaves forgot they had back scars

Ay, M-M-Mister DeNiro what kind of gun is that?
Can you look more like a menace?
Take two, now run it back
Ay s-s-so what Scorsese, got all them money stacks
Long as his lens never looks at the real maniacs

Clap for them killers
Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers
Double up for them gangsters

Can you clap for them killers?
Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers
Double up for them gangsters
