Throwback to Ludacris’s 2003 single tagged “Blow It Out”. Listen, stream, buy, mp3 download and read the lyrics to the song produced by Ron Browz.
Looking back, 2003 feels like one of those years where artists were simply driven to excel, culminating in no shortage of classic hip-hop albums; in fact, there are some who still feel like it was one of the greatest years the culture has ever seen. Contributing to the cause was Atlanta lyricist Ludacris, who lined up his third studio album Chicken-N-Beer seventeen years ago to this very day. Following the success of his classic sophomore drop Word Of Mouf, Ludacris made sure to begin his delectably titled project on a defiant note, running a victory lap around doubters with “Blow It Out.”
Taking to a string-driven banger laced by Ron Browz, Ludacris laid out a barrage of punchlines with his typical fervor. “In one year I got rich, now life’s movin so fast, but bein broke with no food is just a thing of the past,” he muses. “Plus I’m the new phenomenon like white women with ass.” While it’s up for debate as to whether or not Chicken-N-Beer is a classic, for many fans, the project remains a nostalgic gem — one that captures a brilliant era in rap that has since come and gone. As such, it always feels appropriate to highlight these projects whenever an anniversary milestone rolls around.
Ludacris – Blow It Out (prod. Ron Browz)
[Verse 1: Ludacris]
I never used to snore in my sleep ’til this rap shit started
Warm thoughts fill the hot-headed and cold-hearted
Your whole paycheck, you burp it and then fart it
And y’all think I’m gon’ stop? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
In one year I got rich, now life’s movin so fast
But bein broke with no food is just a thing of the past
Plus I’m the new phenomenon like white women with ass
And y’all prayin that I flop? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
In New York I buy clothing, in Cali I get green
In Atlanta I get sleep, in Texas I sip lean
All these rappers wanna know what I’m gettin for sixteens
Try 80, want a discount? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
See in just six months I infiltrated the system
If you find somebody better, then I’m sorry I missed him
Niggas hate givin me props cause I might use it against them
C’mon, get Ludacris out! BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
[Hook 2X: Ludacris]
If you mad I’m on top, then wish me gone
If you mad I’m on the road, then wish me home
And if you mad that I’m right, punk wish me wrong
But after your three wishes – BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
[Verse 2: Ludacris]
It’s time to saddle up the Tontos cause I’m the Lone Ranger
I eat dinner with Jews but don’t talk to strangers
I’m just a few albums from filling your disc changer
If you ever think of stoppin me – BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
I’m a hustler by nature but criminal by law
Any charges set against me, chunk it up and stand tall
Next year I’m lookin into buyin Greenbriar Mall
You probably own a lot of property! BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
C’mon and take a look, he’s got gigantic balls
Plus his money keeps flowin like Niagara Falls
We all know Jesus saves and Ludacris withdraws
I’m ’bout to go on vacation – BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
Shout out to Bill O’Reilly, I’mma throw you a curve
You mad cause I’m a THIEF and got away with words
I’mma start my own beverage, it’ll calm your nerves
Pepsi’s the New Generation – BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
[Verse 3: Ludacris]
My black people show me love when I’m up on the block
And Latinos always waitin for my CD’s to drop
White people love the flow, they say, “Dude, you fuckin rock!”
Yo’ fans are my fans, right? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
So find my album in the stores and look for the white steam
Rip it open, play it and yo’ momma might scream
It’s hard, other albums are softer than ice cream
Yo’ scans are my scans, right? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
Now Luda’s throwin up A’s, and I’m lightin up L’s
Around the globe gettin paid, you home bitin yo’ nails
DTP, the only label that practice fightin ourselves
We probably gettin on your nerves, huh? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
I been eatin and gettin FAT while y’all dyin of hunger
I get drunk in the winter, stay high in the summer
Watch out, my album’s puttin up McDonald’s numbers
You over 6 million served, huh? BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
BLOW IT OUT YA ASS!
