Party Starter - Will Smith

Party Starter

Lost And Found
Hip-Hop rap hip hop dance rnb


"Party Starter" is the second single released from Will Smith's album Lost & Found. There are slight differences between the single and album versions - the single version has different beats and is longer with added compression. The song was written with rapper Ludacris as a tribute to Bobby Seale. The music video has what seems to be a cameo of Will's past music partner DJ Jazzy Jeff. However this turned out to only be a lookalike as he wasn't available for the video shoot. The song didn't perform as highly on the charts as his previous hit "Switch", but fans were generally positive towards the choice of single that was chosen from the album to be released.

Party Starter - Will Smith

[Chorus:]
Git on the floor!!!!! Whoa! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the dj to play my song
& we could dance all night to the early mornin'

Oh! I'm the Party Starter,
You might have a good time but we party harder
So, tell the dj to play my song
& we could dance all night to the early mornin'
Dance, an aphrodisiac
Women gyrating, simulating sensual acts
To stimulating musical tracks
I thought I was just gon' come out tonight & get a brew & relax
But no! Uh uh, when you're the party starter
It's like you're on call, you're what the doctor ordered
It's like you gotta block the border to the door
& shock em when it's boring....
Git on the floor!!
Ughh, it's the groovicide bomber, mic in my vest
Tight, strapped to my chest
Like, I'ma run up in the party hollerin'
& be like "Ohhh!", fulfillin' my callin'
Big! (Big), Will! (Will), that's my name, whoop!
Writin' rhymes, that's my game, whoop!
Ask me again and I'll tell you the same, whoop!
Just write ya number down right next to ya name, girl

[Chorus:]

He was raised in the days when the roof was raised
Every rap occasion, new & amazing
The back of the stage amazed and gazin'
Prayin for the day they would one day praise him
Studied the ways of the game & made it
Came through the maze & the haze & played it perfect
Days any person hated & cursed him, he was unfazed
He waited, it was worth it, he never retaliated
He saved it, slavin', on the road blazin'
Days when he was low, nothin' could raise him
He came to the show & somethin' uncaged in him
Like the pope, but it's party crusade, I'm like braids that's never gon'
Fade (ya heard)
I'm like, 23's on an Escalade, throw me into the rave
Like you threw a grenade - boom!!

[Chorus (2x)]

I call for the days of the unadulterated
When the artistry was cultivated
You know, back when rap was smart and multilayered
We could rap without A&Rs& ultimatums (damn)
Now today I could say I long for the days when the party was all about
Partyin'
I was a mini-party starter then
My mind bends when I call my pen
The big question should I run the mind a vittle
Food for thought or dumb the rhyme a little
But Will "if you come to high that'll alienate folks & they won't buy
It"(yo),
Look, people getting trapped in the track
& they be clappin', even when the rappin' is wack
Yo, what happened, when did we get happy wit that?
He's old-fashioned (yup), but let's be happy he's back
(Ya heard me!)

[Chorus (2x)]
