    Nowadays,
    If I’m looking for some new sounds,
    I keep my ears to the ground,
    Because washing them

    In the main stream
    Just might bring my spirits down.

    If I could,

    I’d file a missing person’s report
    For originality and creativity
    And report my suspicion

    Of a kidnapping conspiracy
    Perpetrated by radio stations
    And major member corporations
    Of the music industry.
    And I know it isn’t just me.
    Because nearly every five minutes
    On black video shows and radio stations
    There are more presentations
    Of female degradations
    And nonsensical regurgitations
    By phonies unworthy of rotation,
    And how their crap is mistaken
    For art goes beyond irritation,
    Along with the fact

    That their programming
    Adversely affects
    One's spiritual vibrations
    enough to give up your money and souls
    to elitists and corporations.
    Don't you hear all the explosions
    coming from all the spirit bombs
    dropped on us daily

    by corporations like Viacom?
    Why is it

    That nearly every black video show
    makes black neighborhoods

    Look like street-wide strip clubs
    and we only seem to earn pay
    if we perfectly portray
    ourselves as whores, pimps, and thugs?
    Hip hop used to be the genre
    We could turn to for knowledge,

    facts, and common sense.
    Commercialism promoters now

    filter out all levels of consciousness
    and we haven't seen too many emcees
    that have been

    knowledge-dropping since.
    That's why...

    Nowadays,

    If I’m looking for some new sounds,
    I keep my ears to the ground,
    Because washing them

    in the main stream
    Just might bring my spirits down.

    BET used to empower us
    when it broadcasted very little fiction,
    But since it sold to Viacom,
    It sets Bad Examples

    through Tell-lie-vision.
    And God knows today's black radio
    doesn't know the way to go,
    pushing away positivity
    until negativity rules your brainwaves

    thanks to its broadcasting ratio...
    ...causing treacherous agendas

    To keep advancing
    which hinder artists from preventing
    the people and the beast

    from dirty dancing,
    which is why these two media vehicles
    will keep feeding you lies.
    Just take a close look
    At the types of artists getting rotation
    Or being advertised:
    Clans and cliques

    of crossover kings and queens
    Complying with covenants

    of complete silence
    On adverse issues such

    as political neglect,
    Constant ongoing discrimination,
    And police on black violence.
    These puppets and robots

    claim to keep it real,
    But won’t touch these and other realities.
    One might even think they sold

    Their creative control
    For a guaranteed salary.
    That’s why…


    Nowadays,
    If I’m looking for some new sounds,
    I keep my ears to the ground,
    Because washing them

    in the main stream
    Just might bring my spirits down.

    Seeing years of them repeating

    the same lame subjects
    And weak promotional concepts
    Should be the main red flag

    to all music lovers
    That these fools have no depth.
    Most of them are just pimping their gifts
    To make some bread.
    They don’t care whether or not

    What they spit has our kids misled;
    Or as Puffy once said,
    “It’s all about the Benjammins, baby!”
    It makes me wonder

    if they read the warning
    About the love of money

    in their bibles, lately.
    They’re likely to call me a hater,
    But I think they hate me
    Because they know they ain’t free,
    And probably realized

    That they’re deeper than me
    Inside of Babylon’s slavery,
    especially knowing how much

    respect they've lost;
    trying to make each second
    of their fame and fortune last
    because their soul was the cost.
    Plus, the corporate leeches they trust
    will still suck them dry

    when they're gone.
    This is why when I see CDs
    full of that Flake-Wrote-tation,
    My 20 stays in my pocket

    and I move on.

    And if you’re looking

    for some new sounds,
    I suggest,

    you keep your ears to the ground,
    Because washing them

    in the main stream
    Just might bring your spirits down.

    And the indocrination continues. It's designed to lower frequencies.
    Phenomenal statement on the industry. I stand with you.
    Great capture.
