    you all I got
    fact is you hood rat stock
    piss on momentum we HAD
    at fault ambition we LACKS

    Let us not forget the lessons of our glorious past
    handed down from men and women of color
    who under the most extreme circumstances
    managed to make life for you and I better

    They would turn in their graves
    if they could see how little
    we respect their efforts
    how little we respect
    ourselves

    Calling each other niggus
    that insidious word
    that enslaves us
    to this very day

    My negro fought like hell
    to be called a man...
