lyrics

We're the original literal or biblical we're the pinnacle
physical or spiritual it was learned from our umbilical
all of science in general to the highest identical
alive in his image too these ain't lies that I'm giving you
now we act like niggas who shake they ass for the biggest jewels
satisfied with spending til we win the crown for richest fools
calling our mothers and daughters bitches too
our community's dead and this is living proof
when a 6 month old baby's killed it's crazy real
to survive you need the amazing skill of a navy seal
no wonder why they wave the steal took under by the hate they feel
til satan waits to make a deal like sign and you'll be raking mills
video on worldstarr tv show on VH1
a knife to the lords heart can't remember where we came from
we started from the clouds
now we stuck inside the ghetto tell me how could we be proud

And to the esteemed family of Emmett Till
I do not cosign how these other rap niggas feel
wishing I could kill em still or teach em till I give em skills
Life and death what I'm spitting real every rhyme is a living will
and while yall contributed to that Molly craze
the NYPD killed Kimani Gray
3 shots to his back while he was running away
Now these big gangsta rap niggas ain't got nothing to say
Wait, oh I thought that you was busting the K
see the police now you got ya tail tucking to skate
What's up with em Jay? You ain't touchin em Ye?
Where TI and Luda are they stuck in the A?
Imagine having one stop hustling day
take the hood to the precinct till they shutting the place
We want justice for Gray Kimani and Ramarley Graham
Trayvon, Rekia Boyd, Noel Polanco, Oscar Grant
don't be surprised when niggas start poppin back
mourners in the ghetto reading Dorner's manifesto
praise the Lord and pass the metal
cause we on the bottom now
don't mean we can't take the power push them cowards outta bounds
