    “HIS story”

    A lot of cats don’t know where they blood came
    From the lynching on blocks with scars on socially given names
    From the blocks, my people marched
    They died just to get a meal at the golden arch
    When the backdoor to supply receiving was our entrance
    These days our people getting robbed through interest
    My people were kings in Egypt
    We had languages and writings known as a hieroglyphic
    Our history is on Dead Sea scrolls
    The power was unveiled to the world when a piece was unrolled
    This power, stripped from us on these boats
    Ignorance was our ply, easily used as scapegoats
    Sold into this mindset, tell me it don’t still exist
    Slaughter nations like guerillas in the mist

    Old Negro spirituals was old hymns with no instruments
    Got caught singing bout Jesus, eat you with no sentiments
    It was civil war back then, world was slow but full of sin
    It’s spiritual, guerilla warfare now, and its dwells from within
    The hearts of man was lost in the dirt to mistrust
    Education is feared cuz they don’t want it with us
    Minorities run abundant now to decrease our numbers
    Mobility, terrorism and takeover happens in hummers
    Entertainment finally gives us a gram
    We been puttin it down so long for Uncle Sam
    Do they really want me or they want me as a stepping stone?
    Should we build our own and engrave our generations in stone?
    The ghetto getting bigger but I thought ghettos existed in Germany
    Our peace, in white horses, they still trying to burn G
