Tupac “Holla Back Girl If Ya Hear Me” (Gwen Stefani Mashup)

Tupac “Holla Back Girl If Ya Hear Me” (Gwen Stefani Mashup)
This odd pairing takes the classic 2Pac jam “Holler If Ya Hear Me” from his 1993 album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z” and runs it over the Gwen Stefani hit “Hollaback Girl” from her debut solo 2004 album “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.”. “Holler If Ya Hear Me” was the first single from the album, and used a sample from People’s Choice “Do It Any Way You Wanna” and Public Enemy’s “Rebel Without a Pause”. The Neptune’s own Chad Hugo and Pharrell’s production mixed the track for HipHopFightsBack and gives us a view into what could have been if 2Pac was still around. There also was a Broadway musical called “Holler if Ya Hear Me” which had 17 previews and 38 regular performances before calling it quits. The play featured over 20 songs and included hit songs “California Love,” “I Get Around,” “Thugz Mansion,” “Keep Ya Head Up,” “Dear Mama,” “Me Against the World,” “Unconditional Love” and “Hail Mary.”

Lyrics

Here we go, turn it up, let’s start
From block to block we snatchin hearts and jackin marks
And the punk police can’t fade me, and maybe
We can have peace someday G
But right now I got my mind set up
Lookin down the barrel of my nine, get up
Cause it’s time to make the payback fat
To my brothers on the block better stay strapped, black
And accept no substitutes
I bring truth to the youth tear the roof off the whole school
Oh no, I won’t turn the other cheek
In case ya can’t see us while we burn the other week
Now we got him in a smash, blast
How long will it last ’til the po’ gettin mo’ cash
Until then, raise up
Tell my young black males, blaze up
Life’s a mess don’t stress, test
I’m givin but be thankful that you’re livin, blessed
Much love to my brothers in the pen
See ya when I free ya if not when they shove me in
Once again it’s an all out scrap
Keep your hands on ya gat, and now ya boys watch ya back
Cause in the alleys out in Cali I’ma tell ya
Mess with the best and the vest couldn’t help ya
Scream, if ya feel mesee it clearly?
You’re too near me –

2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”

Pump ya fists like this
Holla if ya hear me – PUMP PUMP if you’re pissed
To the sell-outs, livin it up
One way or another you’ll be givin it up, huh
I guess cause I’m black born
I’m supposed to say peace, sing songs, and get capped on
But it’s time for a new plan, BAM
I’ll be swingin like a one man, clan
Here we go, turn it up, don’t stop
To my homies on the block gettin dropped by cops
I’m still around for ya
Keepin my sound underground for ya
And I’ma throw a change up
Quayle, like you never brought my name up
Now my homies in the backstreets, the blackstreets
They fell me when they rollin in they fat jeeps
This ain’t just a rap song, a black song
Tellin all my brothers, get they strap on
And look for me in the struggle
Hustlin ’til other brothers bubble –

2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”

Will I quit, will I quit?
They claim that I’m violent, but still I keep
Representin, never give up, on a good thing
Wouldn’t stop it if we could it’s a hood thing
And now I’m like a major threat
Cause I remind you of the things you were made to forget
Bring the noise, to all my boyz
Know the real from the bustas and the decoys
And if ya hustle like a real G
Pump ya fists if ya feel me, holla if ya hear me
Learn to survive in the nine-tre’
I make rhyme pay, others make crime pay
Whatever it takes to live and stand
Cause nobody else’ll give a damn
So we live like caged beasts
Waitin for the day to let the rage free
Still me, till they kill me
I love it when they fear me –

2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”
2PacHolla if ya hear me
“Hard!” “Tellin you to hear it, the rebel” – P.E
“Tellin you to hear it ”

2PacYou’re too near me, to see it clearly
Repeat 4x
2PacHolla if ya hear me
