lyrics

Who you think came through bringing all them rifles
same people came through with all them bibles
same people came through in the revival
same people running all the jails

Now who entitled to spit this ghetto recital
was you alive when they tricked, stole, raped, whipped
translatlantic space ships
brought us here, bought us here, let us out, caught again
how we gon play the game we barely have quarters here
home broke, family broke, school broke, job broke
car broke, money broke, girl called, water broke
baby come, next generation, nothing change
next baby gon get him a gun, he gon start a gang
call him Hoover or David call him a shooter
wish he only LOAD up on the computer
wish somebody care about us, young rulers
I wish they stop staring at us

What it’s like to be a BLACK MAN

long as you killing yourself, they chilling
soon as you talk black power, you a villain
long as you stay in church arguing over scripture
soon as you touch massa money, we’ll get em
yeah they still lynching
hell yeah it’s still Emmitt Till
they just put him in the system
more money in prisons
and Jim Crow got a law degree, can you find him?
Mr. James Crow, Esq
