lyrics

I been stop and frisked for years they treat us like we animals
I'm so use to it I wrote me a manual
A step by step booklet so you can get
Through your stop and frisk before they cock and spit
Rule Number 1 never carry a gun
Even if ya got a license it might be a crisis
if you make a move for your waist just the slightest
they'll empty every round of they clips till you're lifeless
Rule Number 2 in fact make no sudden moves
Don't you know these bad boys use violence to silence
They'll treat you like ya highness (a king)
I done seen mad kids get they wigs cold busted over nothing
Number 3 never trust no police
These cops will set a brother up gun them up then cover up
Whenever they run a muck and come to bust on one of us
Its never Justice cause it's always just us
Number 4 I know you heard this before
Always comply and pray to God you survive
Number 5 never talk back when they talk smack
If even they call you a nigger man be the bigger man
6 think you can run & jet quick dead it
They'll catch you and beat you so bad you won't forget it
Number 7 this rule is so underrated
Always try to stay in places well lit and populated
Cause when the streets is watching police get cautious
So you might survive without getting beat and hauled in
Number 8 any weight that you carry's a risk
They catch you with a nick they beat you like you hustling bricks
Number 9 should have been Number 1 to me
Every time you get stopped always film the police
Cause if you get a whippin they ain't trying to listen
You be sitting in prison if they don't see it with they vision
Number 10 a strong word called the constitution
Or does it apply then to only white men?
Is being black or brown probable cause hell no
So why do we get stopped rain sleet hail snow
Follow these rules you'll have more days to wake up
If not cops could pull out and shoot ya place up
Slugs hit ya temple watch ya frame shake up
Caretaker did ya make up
When you passed those cops they ain't even break up
No charge they ain't miss a day or get a pay cut
It's only us that get stopped but they say it ain't racist
Gotta to go before the po po come and take us
