The 911 is A Joke Songfacts says: A common misconception about this song is that it's critical of the police response time in urban black neighborhoods. Actually, it's about the paramedics response time - important distinction.

  • sweet save there mahgeneration
  • nice
  • That was a joke, if you couldn't tell.
  • Jews of, how do you live with 9/11 on your conscience?
  • 911. Yeah right! PE keep it real!
  • hella annoying
  • i like to call 911 as a joke
  • i like the people that think this song's about 11-sept-01.
  • Whether it's about police or paramedic response's sad that the song had to even be made. I guess that's one reason why PE and other early rap groups were around, to bring shit like this to light...
