    What's your name? Word...
    Hold my hand, follow my plan heal the world with me.
    Carry on, stay strong and we'll rise eventually.

    I rap, I rhyme
    I never pose, never profile
    Nah...
    I stay connected, redirected from the slave mentality.
    They wanna be mad at me
    Because our ancestors are the same colors as the galaxy
    BLACK.
    Witness this Afrikan resurrection
    White women are looking hard at me like an erection

    Want to lounge with the god,
    But their chances are low, against the odds
    I say no when they ask.
    Once upon a time I slipped
    But that time has passed.
    Stay on the other side of the looking glass.

    I'm low on melanin?
    But on the other hand you are zero.
    Yeah, sure you're smart but you can't get with me tho.

    I know the real reason you lie to me
    It's so you can get close and lie with me.
    Steal my color
    Steal this brother
    Take my Self Love in the place of your Self Hate.
    Regenerate
    And come back strong.

    Disorganizing and separating my people
    Disgusting, nasty, like western lingerie
    Weak and see-thru.

    Deficient, negative values,
    Your economic systems are not unilateral.

    Black on black
    And the theft of our minds.
    Is the only reason why we can't
    See the color line.

    But I keep on spraying on the block
    With my mental gat.
    In the studio booth
    Preaching truth to youth
    Forever closing the mental gap.

    One.

    Ikoro - As stone sharpens metal so does one man's mind sharpen another and I like the edge of your knife. It has a cut to slice off some of the needed fat in our lives. Nicely done. Namyh

    Peace fam.

    Brother Coger, thank you for your praise.

    Brother Hyman, one day we'll be fat free my Brother.

    Brother Rich, humble thank you's for that.

    Sister Triniti, indeed and thank you.

    Brother J'hiah, collective upward mobility, as Asante has reminded us, is in the ways of our people. Thank you.

    Let's continue with the creative destruction of the White Supremacy system.

    One.
