    Uh.

    Yes

    ******
    Stop the word
    Like what word
    A symbol of the streets’
    All that labor
    U slave
    For using the word
    And I turn around and
    Address my kin
    As the same syllables
    I just change
    The er
    From
    To “A”
    And be on my
    Way
    But it seems
    The wanna be “African”
    All of sudden
    Blood gets rushing
    So I speak with the percussion
    That it’s a 400 year discussion
    To delete
    The word from
    The black dictionary
    But to me
    The world means nothing
    To me it means addressing the black man
    But why
    Don’t women say it to other women?
    U heard
    Be fo
    U try to chastise the boy
    U already the enterprise
    Buying that Chinese chicken
    And Pakistan fuel
    So who the fool, you fool
    Behind yo back, you think I’m a fool
    Ooooh
    So, if I was down fo yo cause
    You’d stick up for me
    But the epiphany, u ain’t really for me
    Saying u real cuz yo hair is dreaded
    But the truth is
    You was broke, no clipper fade, blade, take that blade
    And you dread it
    Every time u sees me, u thinks captivity
    But I’m trying to capitalize vividly
    You feeling me
    So with ya
    Naps
    And ya afro pic
    Don’t forget I got the pic
    Of you making negotiations
    With Asians
    I even heard you buy African
    Clothes
    From Anglos
    And you tell me
    I ain’t true to myself
    Cuz I put my wealth on myself
    Instead of buying trophies
    To tell me how black
    I am
    Of all of us
    You the Uncle Sam
    And I don blew man
    The breath
    Of my death
    Immortalized into
    Folks who just a folk
    Tale and won’t kill tail
    To have better tale
    For the next generation to tell
    So
    I foretell, what’s already in the foothold
    You hate me cuz I am the mold
    Of the concrete

    Can't judge a book by it's cover, or know everything by observing possessions. Deep flow, nice to read you again.
