    .....

    i can make any equation simplistic
    math or science or law my defiance is raw
    try making me a frozen statistic and you'll thaw
    you'll melt when the si(lava) is felt

    y'all my witnesses

    hear me...
    i flow in crazy ballistics forget your theory
    this day i swear you 'bout to fear me
    cuz i'm a young black man
    a God-fearer whose passion is in breaking barriers
    test my faith.
    i'll break you down like aids carriers and then heal you

    y'all my witnesses
    for the creating of our own businesses
    and upbringing
    **** singing we shall overcome someday cuz someday is today
    try to blocking me at the entrance like George Wallace
    and you'll be crippled dead and gone
    by the strength of my education

    y'all my witnesses

    to the murder of stereotypes
    and mediahype projections of my peeps
    i play for keeps
    i play for keeps be it freedom, opportunity
    houses and jeeps
    it's your blood
    your sweat
    your tears shed if you play against my endeavor not even Einstein's that clever

    y'all my witnessess to this first degree
    to this college degree(s)
    no need for prosecutors a.k haters to reveal exhibit a or exhibit b
    i'll stand with blood drippin' from my hand on the holy bible and
    say "i'm guilty it was me"
    but it'll be you heading for the penetentiary in your jail cell
    getting my mail saying " i told you"
    i had peeps at the scene that day and night i stripped you clean of your ignorance
    took back all that was stolen and left your whole dome swollen with brand new thoughts
    and before i could turn myself in i was caught






    y'all my witnesses
