Some incomprehensible words of James Brown – Funky President
This song keep playing in my mind since the time when I played some game where this song was.
Lyric web sites say different versions. I gather up all the versions in one. Cold anyone please clarify or make possible suggestions to those incomprehensible lines?

PS: I'm not native English speaker.
The incomprehensible word is "rap", used here as an exhortation for the Godfather [Brown] to speak.
Put up [Incomprehensible] on/own the job
The phrase is "Put up your factory, own the job," as in start your own business rather than seek employment from others.
