lyrics

(VERSE 1)
I think half of these rappers should wear blackface
reinforcing every stereotype from past days
I can't blame blame 'em, entertainment is a business
the kind where you're hurriedly buried for bearing witness
so instead you're almost propelled towards hellish diction
very few can craft wisdom into compelling fiction
so what sells is friction, cause it's easily mass produced
omnipresently marketed, targeted at the youth
controversy for profit reversing positive thoughts
taught the audiences so consciousness is not often bought
cause it makes 'em feel uncomfortable, maybe they feel judged
I just feel like the stuff I hear ain't real enough
real is what makes us unique as human beings
real is everything that we're feeling, thinking,
doing, seeing,
being and becoming, people linking and struggling
and that's way more than just clubs, guns, drugs and fucking

(HOOK)
you say you a real nigga
I'ma call a spade a spade
whether you're house or field,
nigger, a slave's a slave


(VERSE 2)
it's open season on black children
when being seen as threats justifies the act of killing
even when they're unarmed, totally within their rights
in a car at a gas station, or walking home at night,
and Americans are programmed to see blacks as threats
this includes other black people too, alas, we're set
against each other like Set against his brother Osiris.
Consider that next time you throw up a set's sign just
to look more acceptable or make a public spectacle
I know OGs who see that will definitely be testing you
cause it's disrespectful to cheapen what homies died for
too many phonies claiming alliances they ain't ride for
until they saw it as an easy way of making money
nigga how you gonna START gangbanging in your twenties?
That's literally retarded, how stupid is that?
think you're making moves? Fool, you're just moving us back

(HOOK)
