    YES I KNOW THIS JOINT WON'T GET RADIO PLAY,

    BUT I'M GOING TO SPIT THIS RHYME ANYWAY,

    THE MASSES OF OUR PEOPLE OUR DYING OFF DAILY,

    NOT REMEMBERING THEIR ROOTS LIKE ALEX HALEY.

    THEY THINK THEIR HISTORY STARTED IN SLAVERY,

    BUT ADAM AND EVE WERE BLACK,- DIRT AIN'T WHITE-O.K.?

    FROM THAT WE BUILT THE PYRAMIDS,

    BUT NOW THAT KNOWELDGE HAS BEEN HID,

    AS WE ARE KILLING EACH OTHER, SAYING *****

    THE THINGS THAT WE DID.

    EDUCATED BY OUR ENEMIES, TO GRADUATE TO PRISON.

    UNLESS YOU CAN PLAY SOME TYPE OF SPORT,

    AND WITHIN THAT LIES THE DERISION.

    YOU SEE WE FORGOT ABOUT IMHOTEP BUILDING THE 1ST PYRAMID STEP, THE FISRT ONE ON EARTH WHERE BLACK GODS SLEPT.

    MOSES BEING TAUGHT BY BLACK HIGH PRIEST,

    THE TEN COMMANDMENTS HE WROTE, UPON THE BLACK HEBREWS RELEASE,

    A BLACK MAN CARRIED THE CROSS FOR JESUS CHRIST,

    BUT NOW ALL YOU HEAR IS OF THE BLACK MANS VICE.

    SOLD INTO SLAVERY- SOME BY OUR OWN PEOPLE-

    DEAD BODIES CONTINUE TO PILE HIGHER THAN A HOLY CHURCH STEEPLE.

    FROM SLAVERY TO DRUGS , OUR MINDS ARE STILL CHAINED,

    SOME THINK IT'S FLY PIMPING WOMEN-, IT'S SLAVERY AGAIN;

    WOULD YOU WANT YOUR MOTHER AND SISTER OUT IN THE STREET, FOR SOME NI**GA SAYIN ***** WHERE MY MONEY?

    -GET BACK OUT IN THE RAIN!

    I TELL YOU MY PEOPLE , THEY TRYING TO KEEP US UNDER THE GUN

    BUT WE ARE THE TRUE ORGINIAL BLACK MAN

    FIRST MAN CREATED UNDER GODS HOLY SUN?
