    *** shaking and and money making
    a culture's mathematical equation
    "lineage regression" back to auction
    block one

    sell your soul brother for .14 cents
    per record soul"d"
    kill that ****** between the lines
    of your rhymes
    verbally depict what is already known
    "stress and hard times"

    abort your meaning to fulfill your
    dreams of bling blinging and a mouth
    full of platinum
    and FuBu and Bentleys and
    Benzs and whatever else material
    things they'll sell you...

    they ain't offering you stock in their company
    so your generations can eat
    but, they'll sell your people their own
    stories of life in the streets
    a good breakbeat don't make the
    sirens go away or the roaches
    die or the toilet from backing up
    but "back that thang up"
    and misogynize your sister

    or "it's murdaaaaa" your brother
    cause ja rules tell you that if you
    shoot a ****** you betta kill that
    ****** cause bullets come back to
    bite / so go ahead and call
    your brother "dog"

    I want to know how much money
    you gone make when all the *******
    die between the verses? are buried between
    the lines of the color green
    half of us in jail
    and they rappin' "re"ill"ilty" raps
    too / so all those brothers
    die every time a beat is played on the bars /

    You better check your Roots it's what
    we have in Common / that and being Public
    Enemy number one / Boom Bap the original
    rap is in an African tongue
    not along some Neptune produced
    track.

    So ****** tell me when all the brothers
    are killed in between the verses
    and the record company suited pimps
    leave you butt naked on the block
    after repossessing their possessions
    whatcha gone do?

    I'm not...

    ...even gonna lie, my
    first instinct was to
    use profanity, ya know
    something like, "Oh $h_t!"
    (well, ya know, you fill
    in the blank).
    You just don't know how
    much I'm feelin' you on this
    one blak man...

    perhaps it's the curse of us who spit a verse in the first place...n*ggas be capitalizin in the worst ways our birth fate...reflectin nothing but thier lies...while they hurt, hate...could be replaced, if we only see their dirt ain't no different then what we see on the cold streets, wit no heat fighting the enemy with only hope, dreams and determination...don't need none of their garbage ****...they only livin large talkin bout those of us who started it....

    reLive the legacy of TRUTH
