    Head Above Water

    Egyptian pyramids, can I build a bridge that will get my people over the ridge
    Ridgegate down the street, trying to get my people off these streets
    That was marvelous, the causeway with a strip of light
    The procession of funach’s promenade is my plight

    Young ones want to be admired like the Mona Lisa
    We admire the Guggenheim but not pyramids of Giza ( not even capitalized on ms word xp pro)
    They forgot about modern science calculated moves with a cpu
    My people neglected in the same magazines they send to you

    Uhh, I take back no regrets; all I want is equal opportunity and respect
    That I will have, my life played back in jury through a mental deck
    Now, you understand all my work to take the game
    This is a game, cuz mentally I’m just playing

    With you, our potential isn’t coincidental
    We were architects before slavery and the ill-mental
    What n no whites in Africa, divided a continent fell
    Here comes me from the Somalian desert, I won’t fail

    If I never drop a design, I put a child in line
    To draw up a line, stamp blueprints and elevate a mind
    To define, with our grind, how we started behind
    The tortoise in a black shell reached the finish line

    Now the first book I wrote aka the spoke
    Was life and how I hoped to rehab from this mental dope
    Now I ride with a scope, praying for hope’
    That my people will elope

    Instead of being chefs in kitchen
    But any means to get greens, in the end only tarnishes dreams
    Weaving dreams like hair, a true friend
    90 degrees morphs into corners that bend

    "tainted platinum"

    one day im in the stores
    till then i flow till the keys stick
