    Laid back so I can observe my options
    Watching the hustlers never get busted
    Setting up pharmacies with extreme strategies
    But none of them can see me
    Shy but sweet
    But uneducated about the reality of the streets
    I don’t slang or have memories of how I used to gang bang
    I’m not super -fly or city slick
    But I’ll be down for you when you fall
    No games no tricks!

    Down am I?

    Across the way are my brothers with strong business sense and political juice
    But they think they’re too cute for me to choose
    Culturally secure but bypassing their African roots
    Although, they’ve alphabetically memorized the names of their Neo-Italian suits
    In their eyes I’m too black to be heard
    Too thick in the waist
    But my originality and individually allows me to adapt to his expensive taste
    I’m not here to control or corrupt
    I was here for the birth of your riches
    I’m even down if you go bankrupt


    Down am I?

    The common man stands insecure
    Envious of my success and afraid of my self expression
    But my arms are stretching long and wide
    To support his creativity
    Helping him search for the artifacts
    Of his lost dreams and prosperties
    And you would think that through this journey they could see
    The interior of my heart the realism in me-------------DOWN AM I?
