Intro
(Paul)
Yo Iím a west coast kid livin in Nashville
(Toby)
And Iím a east coast kid livin in Nashville
Yo Iím a west coast kid
And Iím a east coast kid
Yo Iím a west coast east coast west coast east coast

Verse 1
Yo Iím a west coast kid livin in Nashville
Moved here in the summer when I got my record deal
Plan to make a mill but Iíve only sold a thousand
So I relocated to low income housing
Iím all about singing the blues take a walk in my shoes
You can see my point of view
Country folk on the back porch pickin banjos
Grams and gramps are bustin a move with the dosey doeís

Chorus
Itís all hip-hop to me yea (itís all hip hop to me itís all hip-hop to me)
Itís all hip-hop to me alright (itís all hip-hop to me itís all hip-hop to me)
Itís all hip-hop to me Iím a grab my guitar( itís all hip hop to me itís all hip-hop to me)
Itís all hip-hop to me so tight (itís all hip hop to me itís all hip-hop to me)

Verse 2
(Paul)
And Iím a grab my guitar and play you this song
And all the people come on now and sing along
West coast kid living in Nashville moved here in the summer when I got my
record deal
(Tobymac)
And Iím a east coast kid livin in Nashville moved here in the winter when I
got my record deal
Started with some vinyl and a mic in DC
Suburban little punk with an urban degree
Iím all about makin some noise and givin people a choice
Long as Iím hearin godís voice
All my folk on the back porch Tru, me and Moses
Mandy, Marley ainít it sweet how it grows us

Chorus

Verse 3
My mother used to sing me rhymes (sing me rhymes) when she put me to sleep
(címon)
I wonder if she realized she was sowing seeds (sowing seeds)
And now there growing growin growing to the sky (to the sky)
And now iím flowin flowing (flowin) flowing on this mic
Itís all hip-hop to me

Bridge
What you want what you want what you want what you want what you need
Itís all hip-hop to me
What you want what you want what you want what you want what you need
(Paul)
Yo iím a west coast kid livin in Nashville
(TobyMac)
And Iím a east coast kid livin in Nashville
(Paul)
Moved here in the summer when I got my record deal
(TobyMac)
Moved here in the winter when I got my record deal

Chorus

BGV Chorus
Free your mind and free your soul listen to the rhyme in stereo
Turn the music up so that you can hear a sweet sound coming down loud and clear
Make a simple melody and we lay it down put it all together make a brand new sound
Maybe itís a symphony or maybe just a melody it really doesnít matter cuz

Chorus
