Most of us, for the new year, have resolved to stop using and/or dealing crack cocaine. But for those few who steadfastly refuse to kick the habit, a new group has arisen.

These are the Tough Boys, and this is their song – as made famous in the MacGyver episode of the same name. The lyrics are presented here, along with the proper English translations for those who do not speak 80’s rap. Hopefully some insight can be gained as to how immensely drugs impact our communities…so much so that they would provoke the creation of songs such as these.

Original “Tough Boys” Lyrics, by G Love E Proper English Translation of “Tough Boys”
Listen up chumps. Listen up good. (A charge to the peddler of illegal wares) Listen, morally corrupt individuals. Listen well.
We don’t want no more poison messin’ up our neighborhood. We no longer appreciate the deleterious effects of your illicit goods.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
They’re comin’ at ya. Their justice is impending.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
Pushers and users, ya better jump back. Consumers and distributors of narcotics should take heed.
‘Cause we’re burnin’ down everything related to crack. (Implying the use of vigilante tactics) The “Tough Boys” are eradicating all traces of drugs.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
They’re comin’ at ya. Their justice is impending.
Tough Boys. “Tough Boys.”
Sell dope, you better hide. (Reiterating) Sellers of narcotics should be wary.
Crack dealers know, 30 seconds to go. Sellers of narcotics are aware that their time is short.
‘Cause the Tough Boys are comin’, then everything blows. The “Tough Boys” are swiftly arriving, cutting a swath of destruction.
The Boys are real. We mean what we say. The “Boys” bear truth.
If ya ain’t standin’ with us, then you stand in our way. Those who do not support the “Tough Boys” are hindering their efforts.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
They’re comin’ at ya. Their justice is impending.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
Ya better move it! Flee quickly!
Silent like a dead man, they move through the night, As stealthy as a corpse, the “Tough Boys” employ the cover of darkness,
Strictly takin’ care of business so that everything’s right. Accomplishing their task of restoring equity.
Get with the program. Support ’em with your mind. (A charge to third parties in the vicinity) Promote the ideals embodied by the “Tough Boys.”
(Inaudible)* (Inaudible)
Protect the children. Love your homes. Safeguard your progeny and be proud of their dwelling place.
Let your mind be free…leave the drugs alone! Do not alter your consciousness by partaking in hallucinogens.
Tough Boys, Tough Boys. “Tough Boys,” “Tough Boys.”
They’re comin’ at ya. Their justice is impending.
Tough Boys…Here comes one now. “Tough Boys”…Here comes one now.

One thought on “the tuff boyz

  1. The missing line seems to be “They face the drug man sayin’ you ain’t right.” – I really enjoyed the rap though, it’s kind of awesome :)
