    Hard times for brothas, while the politicians making a killing
    The average man locked up for all the crimes
    When our so called leaders our doing all the stealing
    Slap a tax on anything so they can lace their pockets
    Sit back laugh, label us ignorant, let them tell it we'll never
    figure out how to stop it!
    Oh! That thing with the drugs, that was real cute!
    Drop it off in the hood to the brotha
    While being a silent partner ,simply on mute!
    Basically the man had it all mapped out
    They make it, ship it, and we deal it out!
    Funny thing is when the stuff hits the fan
    We do the time, and they still remain THE MAN
    Only this time wearing a different hat
    This explain why that officer just happent to know where the dope was at!
    Another "COPPER" makes headlines on the evening news
    Failed to mention his partners in the oval office gave him all the clues
    They'll continue to be heros
    Why we take the drops
    Never once realizing who we really need to stop
    While they relax in their station,office or hidden little spots
    Chat a little bit, take a smoke and chuckle about who they got
    Knowing tht we'll never look at the bigger figure
    Thats why everyone in the hood now a days
    Is considered a n*))^r!!
    No matter what race, some are allowed to do better than others
    But none will trangress apon their ban of brothers!
    Yeah some will get jobs and end up in semi high places
    But anyone like Malcolm, Martin, wind up in shallow grave spaces
    Crooked *** politicians belonging in ditches
    Could give a careless about society
    More concerned with their riches!
    Watergate scandal here, Reganomics there
    Hell, even the Bush situation somehow didnt turn out fair
    This is only a small eye opener so be sure and take a look
    Go by any statute you want, and recognize
    Who's the real crooks!
