    I Am Hip Hop - The Audio (RealPlayer)

    Turn off the radio! Turn off that bull****!

    Yeah, Dead Prez got that sh*t right
    Changing stations while changing insights
    Dusting deceit off tarnished tracks
    Tuning into the truth
    & Dropping the dead signals from dead air
    From listening to too many poisonous tunes
    That got my people crooning ignorance
    Inside depraved shells of existence
    Insistent on pounding that bull****
    Into the minds of street babies
    Rattling thumps of ghetto funk
    That allows street punks to glide on by
    In fly rides with rims spinning
    While their lives are continuously spinning out of control
    How many times has a soul been sold to soil the streets?
    Bleeding break beats over concrete
    Where heartbeats cease
    Bass burning the flesh from my bones
    Blood blushes the gravel and glass skyline
    Tinting my eyes red with rum
    That these streets forever thirst
    Lyrics lace me into a lifeless limbo
    I suddenly become the symbol of sacrilege
    Impale me on the crucifix that cats rock around their necks
    As if that reminder of death
    Will resurrect their dead consciousness
    I am screaming and seething with each demon
    Airwaves assaulting my senses
    Bull**** raps raping my reason
    Reality deceiving as my mind is receding
    Receiving sensory overload from sensationalism
    Exploit my womanhood into your favorite bling bling b*tch
    Let me slow motion
    For this brother that promises to make me an overnight celebrity
    Cuz I’m one of them girls down for riding the D
    Sex me up
    Shut me up
    Shut me down
    Break me down
    Reduce my existence to another justification of instant gratification
    Commercialize me and brutalize me
    With another hit of these bull**** lyrics
    Blast that sh*t loud enough for my ancestors to hear it
    So they may weep for my demise
    Brothers and sisters I am Hip Hop betrayed
    Every time another rabid rap gets played
    Envision me as your Queen
    Legs splayed as slave masters violate me repeatedly
    Slimed with their demon semen
    Implanting monstrosities in the womb of my creativity
    Strangling our collective voice through the manipulation of soulless sounds
    Killing the remaining vestige of cultural consciousness
    Just for you to flash and floss and call yourself the boss
    But no one will reminisce over you once your bull**** hits
    Fade from the farce of this existence you’re living
    Take me back to the days of basement sessions
    Street corner ciphers
    When battle raps were wit matches
    & Cats used their minds and their words as swords
    Instead of poisonous knives
    Before remixes of repercussive sins stole lives
    Before I was sold out as an industry whore
    When I was the voice and the heart of Black youth
    Broadcasting the truth of your struggles and glories
    Write me and rock me as your redemption song
    Make me your melodic muse
    Infuse life back into the lyricism of the ghetto griots
    Resurrect me from the shame and pain that stains my soul
    Give me back my name
    I am Hip Hop

    Turn off the radio! Turn off that bull****!

    Sister...I've read you so many times and even listened to your tracks...and I don't even have a word that is worthy to express what your gift does to me...
    All I can do is show you...because as the cliche goes...Actions, speak louder...
