image Crash is one of the new shows I’m into and Panic is one of the most likeable and original characters on the show. I really think he’s going to be back after this show – it’s his breakthrough performance.

So, in, I think, episode 4 Panic (Jocko’s character) goes to the studio and raps for the first time. What comes out is quite amazing, I recommend you watch that episode for a more complete experience. Otherwise, proceed to the MP3 that I got directly off Jocko’s myspace page.

You can play it right on this page (Edit: download link removed, per Jocko's request in the comments) or support Jocko by buying his album off Amazon for only $0.99 (see link below). I know it's really not my kind of music but I can appreciate good lyrics and execution. Enjoy.

Here's a streaming version:

    The lyrics to head up, Their not 100% acurate but i tried
    Took me like 3 hours to get all the lyrics
    (typed myself by listening to song)

    Head Up By: Jocko Sims

    Violent aint what im trying to be
    But this violence follows me
    Never had money for a P.H.D
    Now I get money when i make these beats
    Give to my hood, When i wake these streets
    Speak from my heart motivate my peeps
    Everyday i struggle trying to find some peace
    Never had shit, Never be shit
    But i keep my head up
    Nigga gotta get dat g's
    Live in a dream
    But its alright
    But it aint all good, We misunderstood
    So im bound to repeat the same ol thing
    Same ol ghetto 20" rims on on the whip, gold chains, and the Diamond Rings
    Smoking that cheech, selling crack cocaine
    Tatoo's of the dead homies
    Here goes the po po, Get on that
    Never made it past the age of 18
    Thats why brothers like me get locked up, Made to Sling shackles, In the club with the pants saggin
    Packed up in the back of the wagon, Ya'll get off me, Your killin me softly, Brush it off me, Speak quick and low
    But I gotta go
    5-0, when i freeze my pay roll (oh)
    Its unlikely that i do the right thing like spike, Nigga's too caught up
    Look at all us, Want to ball up
    In the the club, in the mall up, till we fall up
    Im lost trying to fine my way back home
    I’ve been gone for way too long,
    I Was a king, now im back claim my throne
    A black king in the black family that I was taken from

    Always dreamin, Tired of stealin, Theirs no hope for me
    Im gonna struggle, That’s the only way I see
    I just wanna do right
    Father gave me this life
    Everyday is a fight
    But I still keep my head up high

    Head Up!
    Nigga gotta get dat g's
    Live in a dream
    But its alright
    But it aint all good, We misunderstood
    So im bound to repeat the same ol thing
    Same ol ghetto 20" rims on on the whip, gold chains, and the Diamond Rings
    Smoking that cheech, selling crack cocaine
    Tatoo's of the dead homies

    (Uh)
    No time to think, Take a deep breath don’t forget to speak
    Bring to the Lord my life to keep, Been through a lot of trouble way too deep
    Down on my soul but I gotta flow speak
    But I know what to be quick, Never too slow
    Trying to tell nigga’s how to run the show, How to do well, How to blow up
    Nigga roll up, Fucking hands up, Can you feel me
    Po-po’s out still trying to kill me
    The world knows, just still wondering why I have to try
    At night I cry
    Doing the very best I can,
    But im the man, Nigga yes I am
    Nigga bet I am, Nigga better be proud
    Better be wild, I’m a be wild

    Violent aint what im trying to be
    But this violence follows me
    Never had money for a P.H.D
    Now I get money when i make these beats
    Give to my hood, When i wake these streets
    Speak from my heart motivate my peeps
    Everyday i struggle trying to find some peace
    Never had shit, Never be shit
    But i keep my head up
    Nigga gotta get dat g's
    Live in a dream
    But its alright
    But it aint all good, We misunderstood
    So im bound to repeat the same ol thing
    Same ol ghetto 20" rims on on the whip, gold chains, and the Diamond Rings
    Smoking that cheech, selling crack cocaine
    Tatoo's of the dead homies

    Head Up!
    Nigga gotta get dat g's
    Live in a dream
    But its alright
    But it aint all good, We misunderstood
    So im bound to repeat the same ol thing
    Same ol ghetto 20" rims on on the whip, gold chains, and the Diamond Rings
    Smoking that cheech, selling crack cocaine
    Tatoo's of the dead homies

    Gotta Keep My Head Up

    (Ooohhh)
    (Yeah, Yeah)
    (Keep your head up, Keep your head up)
    (Oh)
    (Keep your head)
    (Oh)
    (Keep your head)
    (Yeah)
    (Ooo)

    (Yeah)
    (Yeeeahhh)

    Brilliant! Thank you for the lyrics – looks quite accurate. I'm sure many readers will also appreciate your efforts.

  • Kingzambo

    Duuuude i love this song this is fucking great man !! Keep Up Tha Goodwork Jocko! :D love this song..!

  • jim

    dude i wanted to support the guy, cause i'd normally just go ahead and pirate me a download. but i really appreciated the music and when i discovered it was his only song i wanted to encourage him to put out more.

    except that when i tried to buy from amazon.com they refused to sell it to me because i changed my billing address to a non-US one.

    Where is the logic in that? What possible reason would they have to block non-US residents from buying a song!? it's not some national security state secret typa stuff. i am furious!
