    It makes me sick
    It blows my mind
    When I hear these words
    Come from my own kind
    WHAT'S UP MY *****?
    Are the words I hear.
    Young and old
    As if they've never been told
    About their history
    WHAT'S UP MY *****?
    There’s no big mystery
    That the whips were once cracked
    Across your back.
    Providing constant pain
    That drove many insane.
    Allowing history to repeat
    Beneath your feet
    WHATS UP MY *****?
    Makes my stomach turn
    My soul burns
    Shackled and insane
    With drug infested veins.
    Holding your own back
    By selling crack
    WHATS UP MY *****?
    Those words makes me sick
    Seeing sista's turning tricks
    There’s no mystery
    About hanging from a tree.
    Thinking you're misunderstood
    About your hood
    Hoods were worn over the head
    Leaving a trail *****'S dead
    WHATS UP MY *****?
    Makes my stomach burn
    Brotha's making the wrong turn.
    Children in a mental grave
    being beat like a slave.
    Fighting for freedom
    To be free and dumb
    On the pipe
    While asking for equal rights.
    WHATS UP MY *****?
    Makes me sick!
    Falling for the same O' trick.
    Allowing the devil to have the highest bid
    Buying souls like others did.
    WHATS UP MY *****?
    There’s no big mystery.
    The future of us is up to you and me.
    Please MY BROTHA look back
    clean up your act!!!
    Lets come together as one
    Before any more damage is done!
