    Hip Hop used to be a simple child
    but now it's turned into this h** thas gone wild
    like a minstrel show
    wit dis puppet flow
    someone's pullin' on ya strings
    payin' CASH ta make ya sing!

    so in ya head ya heard "cha-ching"
    and wrote some rhymes so you could bling!
    but, you bear little or no resemblance
    to Mista Martin Lutha King!

    shufflin' ya shoes
    thinkin' you payin f****** dues
    where you think you goin' now?
    is that the life you gonna choose?

    I see…
    you're a slave
    so, now you can't behave
    with valor
    and pride
    just OPEN ya mouth wide
    grinning up on that stage for your nickel and a dime

    do you remember about the chains
    that were locked upon our minds?

    of course you do
    of course you knew
    and I'm sure you remember the noose
    that choked your great grandfatha
    and think about R. Kelly
    next time you look down upon ya daughta

    step 'n fetchit
    bleach an' press it
    go out on stage
    lookin' messed up an' wretched

    in ya pink and blue
    thinkin' you mackin'
    thinkin' you coo'

    but, you look like a slave
    though you probably bathed
    singin' an' dancin' like a coon
    isn't THAT what you've always craved?

    absolutely no respect
    for the MILLIONS that were lynched
    live it up wit all dem dollaz
    "smack ya h**" and be a P.I.M.P.

    makin' all dat pay-pah
    drinkin' an' smokin'
    f*****' an' strokin'
    you really honestly think
    that they don't see you as a token?!?

    a joke…
    who smokes…
    and always provokes
    but, makes THEM a couple of dollaz
    before they cut ya f*****' throat

    so…
    now you got a contract
    now whatchu gonna do?

    a commercial for Nike?
    a commercial for Pepsi?
    maybe a porno with Obsession
    so you can PROVE your male virility

    Hip Hop used to be a simple child
    And now… it's like a Queen that's simply been defiled.

    I can't be dealin' with cats
    That's always fakin' on wax
    That claim they're gangstas on tracks
    But they're just pranksters that rap
    Droppin' lyrics that's wack
    But steady pullin' in scratch
    It makes me wonder why do people waste they're money on that.

    I hear U fully.

    cause it's the generation that follows us
    who forgot about life in the back of that bus
    truss
    things will change
    though they seem deranged
    and strange

    the wheel of Brahma will suddenly turn
    and a new consciousness will finally burn
    and upturn
    what was downplayed
    even forbade
    in a cascade
    of tirades

    by this generation next
    who wanted to get the beama and the lex
    and even seven zero checks

    fifty cent will one day sell out
    to positivity
    not hostility
    that'll pay up all their doubts
    and put love inside their brand new house

    Speak on it, brother.
    We gotta let it be known
    That our children only do what they're shown
    Studyin' videos where booties are thrown
    And indo smoke's blown
    By the poolside of someones expensive home
    But they don't tell them it's all on loan.
