    we're barracaded in a state of confusion
    this mental cell block
    got cerebellum on lock
    should make us want to **** the glock and blast
    pow!
    send bullet through the *** of a cash cow
    should make us wonder how
    our ancestors will be vindicated
    for being dehumanized and degraded
    but instead we shake it
    i mean our assess in these sexist videos
    in the spirit of bed winches, we're still being massa's hoe
    we're rocking hilfiger
    for all the field n*****
    **** concentrating on getting our own figures
    we want that ice
    on the strength of those who suck on glass pipes
    turning kings and queens into moraless fiends with pipe dreams
    that makes them hypes
    and for those who lost their life
    instead of memorializing their name
    we defile our african ancestry by denouncing it in shame
    we'll be pawns in this game
    until the day that we die
    bodies on ocean floor in vain
    while we commit cultural suicide.

    First of all, your intricate and subtle references to the middle passage to present day paper chasing was very well done. The style carries so much weight as the flow carries the rhythm of your heart felt cadence. I know you won't get the props like you should because how hard you bring it, but the realest heads in the house will always recognize how you instill the virtues of our ancestors through your poetry. Stay with us and believe me when I say, someone will gather from your words, no doubt, whether they conciously realize it -or say, in reflection. That shitz was tiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Let it be known.
