    Now what I’m sayin


    Everybody
    Looking for something
    Everybody crave something
    What is it exactly?
    Practically who’ll back me
    Like im searching for a cure in life like acne
    Do poets search for words, rhythm, rhyme, truth schemes?
    Does a ghetto child or a struggling middle class live thru dreams

    Everybody looking for errors in ways
    Thugs liked the way the gage is sprayed
    A gambler likes the way the money is laid
    Never stop till he paid or broke
    He has no hope, I find in many men the truth is far from spoke
    Some black are ******* who look to lie to they kids
    Its where you at but don’t forget what you use to live
    Like church forget how they used to live, never testify
    Life is a lie, blessing preachers for a pie in the sky
    Mentality this is what rattle me
    How could you say u love me, but you wanna battle me?
    My own kind takes the lines out my lines
    Drawing a thin line between what I can take on grind
    Hugging the block, trying to make a half a million
    Bops catching feelings, no degree but he knows dealing
    Tell me is a fat kid really unhealthy
    When his moms feeds him like she’s wealthy
    If he gets teased and turns to low self-esteem
    How does he close the seam, does he turn to cream
    Does he cut, splice, drink with slice or sniff
    Light a spiff, or get consumed in books, what’s the diff
    Is he a outcast, does he turn shy
    Where do his morals lie, where does his soul
    What’s his spiritual state, is he unaware
    That he’s handsome, not ll, but similar to lips, no hair
    Does he become a fat …., u know what
    A lard, claiming he’s a victim, lets shift him

    Back to the streets, where problems blossom
    My bad the block is playing possum
    Cuz the home is the source of infinite sin
    A sip of gin, is the end, the end of friends
    If you base life on ends, you missing value
    What’s more important is life’s inner value
    Don’t mind the money, need it to survive
    In a world lies, where Saddam caught in disguise
    The money talked and told the troops
    Black power exist in men that shoot hoops
    But can’t shoot, cross it back over to days when u scramble to buy a soda
    Athletes ain’t done much to invest and take the hood back over
    Instead they burbin too, charity is hypocritical
    To get loans and funding, team owners need public access, its pivotal
    Can we move as a people, can we build a dream?
    Or will we continue to scheme
    These words I just wrote to nas street dreams
    Gave me dreams, all eyes on teens with a dream
    Education is important in election time
    Less funding for underprivileged, is it time
    To rebel, for panthers in jail?
    Or yell cuz it’s less of us in Yale?
    We hit the historically black, cuz we wasn’t good enough
    To break down “better universities”
    Because diversity, means power is lost
    This instead of chrome I floss
    A black boy lost
    Why boys, cuz men are natural leaders, and we behind

    A black boy lost
    At what cost will we pay to rebuild him
    I got a half a million…….



    Times 60 minutes



    I take back nothing in these lines
