    kobes, jordans, lebrons...
    they wont tell none of your sons

    that they can buy their shoes
    but they'll never wear them

    it's easier to be an Ali, Jim Brown or Marvin Gaye...
    they stood for causes, even Jordan couldn't air them

    of course you got game
    million dollar contracts have a clause for being lame??

    a forbidden breach
    of platinum imagery, golden fame
    nba cares?? what a posturous shame

    this is the code of ethics
    that leads our young people stunting to a road that's reckless

    their idols..
    they have no voice, no clarity
    it doesn't count when you're rich and give to charity...
    and when you'll only bleed and die for titles

    no cause in your blood
    no cure in your contract
    you'll always sell them your shoes
    but you know they'll never wear them...
