    The Hard Ship

    Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry
    Better known as Stepin Fetchit
    Grandfathered Three 6 Mafia
    Godfathered Bishop Don Juan
    Who spawned Snoop Dogg
    And Nate Dogg and all the doggs
    Of the global dogg cons-piracy
    Inspired George’s atomic doggs
    All the way to Omega sci-fi.
    Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry
    Better known as Stepin Fetchit
    Believed he was just getting paid
    Just stacking dollars, collecting duckets
    Just getting momoney, momoney, momoney
    And there was no low too low to go
    He didn’t realize the true cost of his legacy
    Nor did he understand how long we’d have to pay.
    Mr Foxx, Mr Pryor, Mr Cosby, Mr Murphy, Mr Chappelle
    Put together cant foot the whole bill
    And flip, mah-in and perry in drag cant reverse the tide
    Time has no mercy on those with no pride.
    Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry
    Became better known as Stepin Fetchit
    So we would know this without a doubt
    Its hard out here bein’ pimped
    Its even harder out here when you limp
    Just another way to call you a lame
    Half-steppin is just another name
    White men ho’ed us out when they came
    When they brought mass-murder to the game
    They pimped us like they aint got no shame
    And when you wake up it’ll still be the same
    Its hard out here bein’ pimped
    Ask the doggs.

    Pimping the pain...

    It's just pimping the pain, while eating the hogs...
    to the point where we calling each other Dogs
    making big dough, taking off like a rocket
    finding it's way into the *******'s pocket!

    Awesome drop poet, thanks for ensightful facts

    You put it down from A to Z. In each generation there always seems to be a "reason". So now we have pimpin movie songs not only embarrassing us with live performances, but by being awarded no less. smh... This was on point.
