two generations, one legend, doing the necessary

lyrics

What happened to King when they got him
What happened to Malcolm X his own people shot him
Why I’m looking at everybody I meet for the first time
with a look of suspicion, black men can’t define
most of us was born with it, with rap music
I knew the 6 point ‘fore I knew that it was Jewish
when momma got married I was happy, I was clueless
He was Ren, Eazy, and Bone Thugs, Ruthless
still healing, from what he did to us
my little brother, only good that come through it
but if it’s any good, can you re-gret
for anything that happens, if you here, would you re-set?
and do it all over…
if you thought I’d sound different would you start this song over?
or just keep going?

What happened to reality shows?
Why they always arguing, why they act like hoes?
and if you understood, why they ratings so good
guilty pleasure I treasure like Boyz in the Hood
and little Ricky trying to go college and got him a scholarship
I still feel like that red Excel is following
I turned around and see a rapper holding bottles
a bag full of money, an Instagram model
with her body twisted in that same angle with her knee bent
laughing cause eretime now you see it
in sequence, a man who wants girl and a girl who wants man
and an officer who wants us all to disband
if you reach in your pants next to Ricky you Ricky you…

wonder if this was all in they plans
let em get money, they forget they the same
let em have gangs, let em blow they brains
give em new cars, give em crack cocaine
give em all degrees they forget where they came
that’s the same thing happened to King
3 shots at his eyebrows, try to rise NOW
The game is foul, and most bow down
but it takes real strength to KEEP GOING
