      Artist: 2Pac
      Album: 2Pacalypse Now
      Song: I Don't Give a Fuck
      Typed by: OHHLA.com

      I don't give a fuck
      They done push me to the limit the more I live
      I might blow up any minute, did it again
      Now I'm in the back of the paddy wagon
      While this cops bragging about the nigga he's jackin
      I see no justice
      All I see is niggas dying fast
      The sound of a gun blast
      Then watch the hurst past
      Just another day in the life 'G'
      Gotta step lightly cuz cops tried to snippe me
      The catch, they don't wanna stop at the brother man
      But then they'll have an accident and pick up another man
      I went to the bank to cash my cheque
      I get more respect from the mutha-fuckin' dope man
      The Grammy's and the American music shows pimp us like hoes
      They got dough but they hate us though
      You better keep your mind on the real shit
      And fuck trying to get with these crooked ass hypocrites
      They way they see it, we was meant to be keep down
      Just can't understand why we getting respect now
      Mama told me they're be days like this
      But I'm pissed cause it stays like this
      And now they trying to send me off to Kuwait
      Gimme a break
      How much shit can a nigga take
      I ain't goin' nowhere no how
      What you wanna throw down
      Better bring your guns pal
      Cuz this is the day we make 'em pay
      Fuck bailin' hate I bail and spray with my A-K
      And even if they shoot me down
      There'll be another nigga bigger
      from the mutha-fuckin' underground
      So step but you better step quick
      Cause the clocks goin' tick and I'm sick of the bullshit
      You're watching the makings of a physco-path
      The truth didn't last
      Before the wrath and aftermath
      Who's that behind the trigger?
      Who'd do yah figure!?
      A mutha-fuckin night nigga
      Ready to buck and rip shit up
      I had enough and I don't give a fuck

      Niggas!, isn't just the blacks
      also a gang of mutha-fuckas dressed in blue slacks
      They say niggas hang in packs and their attitude is shitty
      Tell me, who's the biggest gang of niggas in the city
      They say niggas like to do niggas,
      Throw me in the cuffs with just two niggas
      A street walkin' nigga and a beat walkin' nigga with a badge
      I had to shoot yah and the pass for the blast take his cash
      And bash his head in dump him at the dead in
      And that's just his luck
      Cause a nigga like me
      don't really give a fuck

      Walked in the store what's everybody staring at
      They act like they never seen a mutha fucker wearing black
      Following a nigga and shit
      Ain't this a bitch
      All I wanted was some chips
      I wanna take my business else where
      But where?
      Cause who in the hell cares
      About a black man with a black need
      They wanna jack me like some kind of crack fiend
      I wonder if knows that my income is more than
      His pension, salary and then some
      Your daughter is my number one fan
      And your trife ass wife wants a life with a black man
      So who's the mac in fact who's the black jack
      Sit back and get fat off the fat cat
      while he thinks that he's getting over
      I bust a move as smooth as casanova
      And count another quick meal
      I'm getting paid for my traid but its still real
      And if you look between the lines you'll find a rhyme
      AS strong as a fuckin' nine
      Mail stacked up niggas wanna act up
      Let's put the gats up and throw your backs up
      But the cops getting dropped by the gun shot
      Usta come but he's done, now we run the block
      To my brothers stay strong keep yah heads up
      They know we fed up
      But we they just don't give a fuck

      They just don't give a fuck

      I gotta give my fuck offs

      Fuck you to the San FranCisco police department
      Fuck you to the Marin County Sheriff department
      Fuck you to the F.B.I
      Fuck you to the C.I.A
      Fuck you to the B-u-s-h
      Fuck you to the AmeriKKKa
      Fuck you to all you redneck prejudice mutha fuckas
      And fuck yah
      Fuck Y'all
      Punk gay sensitive little dick bastards
      2paclypse mutha fuckin' know
      Y'all can kiss my ass and suck my dick
      And my uncle Tommy's balls
      Fuck Y'all
      Punks, punks, punks, punks, punks

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.

      I got a letter from the government
      The other day
      I opened and read it
      It said they were suckers
      They wanted me for their army or whatever
      Picture me givin’ a damn - I said NEVER
      Here's a land that never gave a damn
      About a brother like me and myself
      Because they never did
      I wasn’t wit’ it, but just that very minute...
      It occured to me
      The suckers had authority
      Cold sweatin’ as I dwell in my cell
      How long has it been?
      They got me sittin’ in the state pen
      I gotta get out - but that thought was thought before
      I contemplated a plan on the cell floor
      I’m not a fugitive on the run
      But a brother like me begun - to be another one
      Public Enemy servin’ time - they drew the line y’all
      To criticize me for some crime
      never the less they could not understand
      that I’m a BLACK MAN
      and I could never be a veteran
      On the strength, the situation’s unreal
      I got a raw deal, so I’m goin’ for the steel

      Black Market Militia

      Black Market Militia:


      Audobon Ballroom

      feat. Dead Prez, Savoy

      [Intro: MALCOLM X sample]
      "For in America, black people should never
      Be accused of being violent, or applicating violence
      In America, when a black man says 'I have to defend myself'
      You should call that what it is, self defense
      And if America has the right to defend herself, from her enemy
      The black man in America has the right, to defend himself, from his enemies
      If it's alright for, please I don't want to hear this
      Cuz handclapping's been done long enough"

      [Killah Priest]
      I hold my marker, like Huey P. held his revolver
      Plottin' vengeance, since them bullet shells, sailed through Martin
      I'm stressed, puffin' cigarettes, goin' through cartoons, I'm vexed
      Since the Panther leaders went up on charges, upset
      I'll never meet 'em, but I'm with 'em regardless, my guess
      They die for freedom, and they dyin' for martyrs, they blessed
      But some share needles in the pissy apartments, obsessed
      By thoughts of treason, what they did to the father
      Jesse Jackson, in the face, of his best friend's assassin
      But wait, if I meet 'em, I'mma hand him a magnum
      And whisper, in his ear, "leave none of them standing"
      It ain't fair, he ain't here, you still appear in a pagence
      Imagine gaged in the dungeon, thoughts started by gunmen
      Beatin' me, but I'm sworn a mark of secrecy
      (I feel you Sun), they will never weaken me
      For the struggle, til my fate reaches me

      [M-1]
      You either pimpin' the system, or gettin' pimped by the sytem
      Don't want no slice of the pie, we want control of the kitchen
      Gotta get this bread up nigga, handle business and boss up
      Ain't no slacken or slippin', perpetratin' or short cuts
      The spirit of love, puttin' near work on the grind
      Gotta sacrifice that blood, that sweat and our time
      If you see it, we need it, we want it, we get it, for folks
      Plottin' them planets, they own it, committed like soldiers
      Til we make it happen, it ain't no mystery God
      It's guaranteed when we move, scientifically, God
      It's like plantin' the garden, I'm just a seed of garments
      In the field, tryin' to see the fruits of the harvest
      Same and long range, grown folks do grown things
      Can't let the game change me, I got to change the game
      I'm thinkin' long range, grown folks do grown things
      Can't let the game change me, I got to change the game





      [Tragedy Khadafi]
      One hand wash the other, both wash the face
      Now real recognize real, homey stay in your place
      What about the, revolutionaries given they lives
      My souls on ice, it's like I got, blood in my eye
      The price of freedom is bleeding, I ain't comitting no treason
      Why they hate my black skin, god, give me a reason
      My mother said I'm an angel, and then say I'm a monster
      I grew up in the hood environment, lived amongst the thugs
      And killas, the gangstas, the streets, they feel us
      Ain't nothin' realer than the feeling, when you loving yourself
      Just be a man, take a stand, don't be beggin' for help, help
      My regulation is building my black nation
      I'm running out of my patience, you owe us some reparations
      Guns blowin', blood flowin', I ain't tryin' to be waiting
      Out of control, sellin' our souls to Satan
      Fakin' Satans fatin', Larry Davis

      [Sticman]
      Nowadays wars wage quietly, by secret societies
      Nobody gon' fight back, we sit back silently
      Reality hit hard, that could cause riots
      See they dumbin' us down, medicate us with non-violence
      Television is ridilin, they lockin' up the militant in you
      But the struggle continue, when they can prison you
      In your dome, your home, your zone, you a zomb'
      But you're fried and deputized, something is going wrong
      Is you an agent of the state, but wait
      Cuz if you really wasn't choosin' your side
      Somebody choosin' your fate, cuz the system don't fight fair
      Guerillas don't fight fair, it's warfare everywhere
      Look, it's right there, in the gated communities
      They hatin' on you and me, and Bush's economy
      All he left us was the streets
      In this dog eat dog world, we gotta fill our stomach's, son
      We takin' back what they took, knock-knock, we coming

      [Savoy]
      Somebody told me that ya'll, niggaz is haters
      I'mma tell ya'll one thing, that ya'll, niggaz can't trade us
      Do about my business, and all about my paper
      You can try to burn and lock, but the group is gon', phase ya
      I'm from the gutter, where niggaz pitchin' that butter
      When niggaz up in your mother, they get knocked by undercovers, man
      For all my sisters who on they own with they children
      Surviving to make a living, hold yea head up, there's a brighter day
      The most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.

      Album: The Way It Is Lyrics
      Title: We Could Be Lyrics

      Oh yea yes
      Oh
      Can I talk to you
      For a minute
      There's something on my mind
      That I wanna say

      Oh reality is, takin control of me cause I know, baby
      I know that your loving me
      Oh loving you boy
      I wanna contradict my word
      I belong with you, I do truly wanna know (wanna know)

      [Chorus]
      When you hear me talkin, whatcha think
      When you lookin into my eyes, whatcha see
      I know you ain't tryna to be my man
      Whatcha think about us bein friends, makin plans
      To be everything we wanna be, makin our dreams turn reality
      I'm diggin everything you appear to be
      And I'm wonderin if we could be real good good friends

      So emotional, you know I am
      That's why you do me the way you do me, if you be cool wit me
      You'll see, that I'm all you need and all that you dream
      And never would leave, you'll be right by my side forever
      Swear will grow old together, then reality would be you and me

      [Chorus]
      When you hear me talkin, whatcha think (oh yea)
      When you lookin into my eyes, whatcha see (when you see me baby)
      I know you ain't tryna to be my man
      Whatcha think about us bein friends, makin plans (sometimes I think your so so so scared)
      To be everything we wanna be, makin our dreams turn reality
      I'm diggin everything you appear to be
      And I'm wonderin (wonderin) if we could be (we could be) friends

      If we could be friends, baby
      It be all I need, baby
      I'll give you wat ever you want and never would leave you a front
      And be what you need, baby
      Be all I have, baby
      And I'd be there for you, and never would front do what you do

      [Chorus]
      When you hear me talkin, whatcha think
      When you lookin into my eyes, watcha see (watcha see)
      I know you ain't tryna to be my man
      Whatcha think (whatcha think) about us bein friends, makin plans
      To be everything we wanna be, makin our dreams turn reality
      I'm diggin everything you appear to be
      And I'm wonderin if we could be real good good friends

      If we could be friends, baby
      It be all I need, baby
      Be everything you wanna be
      Making our dreams turn reality

      SOOBAX

      First Verse

      Basically, I got beef, I wanna talk to you directly, I

      Can’t ignore, I can't escape, and that's cause, you

      Affect me, you cripple me, you shackle me, you shatter

      My whole future in front of me, this energy, is killing

      Me, I gotta let it pour like blood, Soobax:

      Hook:

      Dadkii waa dhibtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you have exasperated the people so come out with it.)

      Dhibkii waa batee nagla soobax:

      (Translation - The troubles have increased so come out with it.)

      Dhiigi waad qubtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you've spilled the blood so that it drains on the Roads, so come out with it. )

      Dhulkii waad gubtee nagala soobax: (Translation-You've burnt the root of the earth, so come out with it.)

      Second Verse:

      So for real, who's to blame, we loose lives over

      Qabiil's name, disregard, for the soul, we just don't

      Give a fuck no more, left alone, all alone, settle

      Your issues on your own, what to do, where to go, I

      Got to be a refugee damn, soobax:

      Hook:

      Dadkii waa dhibtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you have exasperated the people so come out with it.)

      Dhibkii waa batee nagla soobax:

      (Translation - The troubles have increased so come out with it.)

      Dhiigi waad qubtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you've spilled the blood so that it drains on the Roads, so come out with it. )

      Dhulkii waad gubtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation-You've burnt the root of the earth, so come out with it.)


      Third Verse:

      Mogadishu, use to be, a place where the world would

      Come to see, Jaziira, sugunto liida, wardhiigleey iyo

      Madiina, Hargeysa, Boosaaso, Baardheere iyo Berbera,

      My skin needs to feel the sand the sun, I’m tired of

      The cold God damn soobax:

      Hook:

      Dadkii waa dhibtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you have exasperated the people so come out with it.)

      Dhibkii waa batee nagla soobax:

      (Translation - The troubles have increased so come out with it.)

      Dhiigi waad qubtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation- you've spilled the blood so that it drains on the Roads so come out with it. )

      Dhulkii waad gubtee nagala soobax:

      (Translation-You've burnt the root of the earth, so come out with it.)

      Fourth Verse:

      I guess I could use the last bar to flow, I’m known as

      A lyrical rhyme domino, I'm cynical, well, oh now you

      Know, put a whole in an emcee like cheerio, they don't

      Hear me though, I work for the struggle I don't work

      For dough, I mean what I say, I don't do it for show,

      Somalia needs all gunmen right out the door.

      Chorus - Repeats
      Nuk Khapera Heru'ur
      The Greatest Revenge Is MASSIVE Success!

      2pac - White Man's World Lyrics


      I ain't saying I'm innocent of all this
      I'm just saying
      This song is for y'all
      For all the times I mess up
      when we mess up

      Dear sister
      Got me twisted up in prison
      I miss yah
      Crying
      Looking at my nieces and newphews picture
      They say don't let this cruel world get yah
      Kinda suspicious,
      Swearing one day you might leave me
      for someone thats richer
      Twist the cap off the bottle
      I Take a sip And see tommorrow
      Gotta make if I have to Beg and Borrow
      Reading love letters
      late night, locked down, and quiet
      If brothers don't recieve their mail
      Best believe we riot
      Eating Jack mat
      Staring at walls of Silence
      Inside this cage
      Where they captured all my rage and violence
      In time I learned a few lessons
      Never fall for riches
      Aplogizies to my TRUE sisters
      Far from bitches
      Help me raise my black nation
      Reperations are due
      Its true
      Caught up in this world
      I took advantage of you
      So tell the babies how I love them
      Precious boys and girls
      Born black in this white mans world
      and all I heard was

      [Chorus]

      Who knows what tommorrow brings
      In this world where everyone lies
      Where to go
      No matter how far I find
      To let you know
      That You're not alone

      Being born with less
      I must confess
      Only adds on to the stress
      Two gunshots to my homies head
      Died in his rest
      Shot him to death
      and Left him bleeding for his family to see
      I pass his casket
      Gently asking
      Is there heaven for G's?
      My homeboys doing life
      Begging mama be stressing
      Shedding tears
      When her son finally ask that questions
      Where my daddy at?
      Mama, Why we live so poor?
      Why you crying?
      Heard you late night
      Throught my bedroom door
      Now do you love me mama?
      Why do they keep calling me nigger?
      Get my wieght up, with my hate
      and pay 'em back when I'm bigger
      Still thugging in this jail cell
      MIssing my block
      Hearing brothers screaming all night
      Wishing they'd stop
      Proud to be black
      But why do we act like
      We don't love oursleves
      Don't look around
      busta (you sucka)
      Check yourselves
      know what if means to be black
      whether a man or girl
      we're still struggling in this
      White man's world

      [Chorus]

      (we must fight)
      Who knows what tommorrow brings
      In this world where everyone lies
      Where to go
      No matter how far I find
      To let you know
      That You're not alone

      So tell me why you changed
      Choosing new direction
      In a blink of an eye
      My time away just made perfection
      You think I'd die
      Not gonna cry
      Why should I care
      Like we holding on to love
      Thats no longer there
      Can you please help me
      God Bless me please
      Keep my seeds healthy
      Banging on my enemies Bleed
      While my G's healthy
      Hoping they bury me
      With ammunition, weed, and shells
      Just in case they trip in heaven
      Ain't no G's hell
      Sister sorry for the pain
      That I caused your heart
      I know I'll change
      If yah help me
      But Don't fall apart
      Rest In Peace
      To Latasha, Little Yummy, and Kato
      To much for this cold world to take
      Ended up being fatal
      Every women in America
      Especially Black
      Bear with me, can't you see
      We're under attack
      I never meant to cause drama
      To my sister and Mama
      Will we make it
      To better times

      In this white man worlds
      Forward to ONE Unified Liberated Africa

      Sizzla Lyrics - Black Woman & Child
      Intro:

      What the Black Nation? I love it

      From the day me born me did done know seh my color a di first

      and it no last

      so weh yuh expect of yuhself?

      Rastafari from the east

      Chorus

      Black woman and child oh yay yay yay
      for you I really have so much love
      dollar bills and coins will fade away
      could never make I so proud oh yeah
      Black woman and child oh yay yay yay
      for you I got so much love
      dollar bills and coins will fade away
      they could never make I proud
      Aloud!

      Motherland Africa still remains so fine
      Empresses and emperors living from in those times
      I know you are the first to give birth unto mankind
      Now let mi seh oh di earth, Queen Omega is divine ooh yeah
      take I to Zion I give thy praise
      that's where my covenant will be always
      how have you been going through those days?
      You've been away for many days

      (Chorus)


      Who will trod upon the road just to make things great?
      oh yeah,
      you and yuh children I see them in front yuh face
      I say,
      keep them close as you live increase their faith
      Marcus Garvey done say it
      him seh if the future come, haste! ohhh
      Natural Inheritor is the way to your needs
      you were born as the one to conceive
      now let my joy put away your grief
      you and your child just smooth as the breeze

      (Chorus)


      Who are those standing at your door?
      dressed in Ithiopian clothes coming more and more
      oh what a lovely day!
      the blessing is so pure
      someone conceive today, of this I am sure

      Artist: Ice Cube
      Album: Death Certificate
      Title: Us


      Verse One:

      Could you tell me who released our animal instinct?
      Got the white man sittin' there tickled pink.
      Laughin' at us on the avenue
      Bustin' caps at each other after havin' brew
      We can't enjoy ourselves
      Too busy jealous... Of each other's wealth
      Commin' up is just in me
      But the Black community is full of envy
      Too much back-stabbin'
      While I look up the street I see all the japs grabbin'
      Every vacant lot in my neighborhood
      Build a store, and sell their goods
      To the county of simps
      You know us po niggas: nappy hair and big lips?
      Four or five babies on your crotch
      And you expect Uncle Sam to help us out?
      We ain't nothin' but porchmonkeys
      To the average bigot, redneck honky
      You say comin' up is a must
      But before we can come up, take a look at US

      Verse Two:

      And all y'all dope-dealers...
      Your as bad as the po-lice- cause ya kill us
      You got rich when you started slangin' dope
      But you ain't built us a supermarket
      So when can spend our money with the blacks
      Too busy buyin' gold an' Cadillacs
      That's what ya doin' with the money that ya raisin'
      Exploitin' us like the Caucasians did
      For 400 years - I got 400 tears- for 400 peers
      Died last year from gang-related crimes
      That's why I got gang-related rhymes
      But when I do a show ta kick some facts
      Us Blacks don't know how ta act
      Sometimes I believe the hype, man
      We're messin' up ourselves and blame the white man
      But don't point the finger you jiggaboo
      Take a look at yourself ya dumb nigga you
      Pretty soon hip-hop won't be so nice
      No Ice Cube, just Vanilla Ice
      And yall sit and scream and cus
      But there's no one ta blame- but US


      Verse Three:

      US ... will always sing the blues
      'Cause all we care about is hairstyles and tennis shoes
      But if ya step on mine ya pushed a button
      "Cause I'll beat you down like it ain't nothin'
      Just like a beast
      But I'm the first nigga ta holler out {PEACE, BLACK MAN}
      I beat my wife and children to a pulp
      When I get drunk and smoke dope
      Got a bad heart condition
      Still eat hog-mogs an' chitlin's
      Bet my money on the dice and the horses
      Jobless, so I'm a hope for the armed forces
      Go to church but they tease us
      Wit' a picture of a blue-eyed Jesus
      They used to call me Negro
      After all this time I'm still bustin up the chiffarobe
      No respect and didn't know it
      And I'm havin' more babies than I really can afford
      In jail 'cause I can't pay the mother
      Held back in life because of my color
      Now this is just a little summary
      Of US, but yall think it's dumb of me
      To put a mirror to ya face, but trust
      Nobody gives a fuck about...

      Peter Tosh- 400 Years

      400 Years, 400 years, 400 years!
      And its the same, the same philosophy
      I've said its 400 years, 400 years, 400 years
      LOOK, how long, and the people they still can't see
      Why do they fight against the poor youth of today?
      And without these youths, they would be gone
      All gone astray!

      Come on let's make a move, make a move
      I can see time, time has come
      And if a fools dont see, fools dont see
      I can't save the youth, the youth is gonna be strong.
      So wont you come with me, I'll take you to a lan of liberty
      Where we can live, live a good, good life
      And be free

      Look how long! 400 years, 400 years, 400 years
      Way too long! Thats the reason my people cant see.
      Said, its 400 long years, 400 years, 400 years!
      Give me patience, same philosophy!

      Its been 400 years, 400 years, 400 years!
      Wait so long! How LONG? 400 long long years.

      Artist: The Roots
      Album: Game Theory
      Song: Don't Feel Right

      [Chorus]
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I don't feel it no more
      Things don't feel right over here
      Lately I ain't been seein' clear
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      Seems to me nowadays things have changed
      I don't know if I feel the same

      [Verse 1-Black Thought]
      Yo, in the land of the unseen hand, and hold trouble
      Theorize your game, it's difficult to roll a double
      The struggle ain't right up in your face, it's more subtle
      But it's still comin' across like the bridge and tunnel vision
      I try to school these bucks, but they don't wanna listen
      That's the reason the system makin' its paper from the prison
      And that's the reason we livin' where they don't wanna visit
      Where the dope slang and keep swayin' like Sonny Liston
      The money missin' and there's mouths to feed
      Yet the brain kickin', thinkin' of a thousand things
      Remember back in the days, when the kitchen had eggs
      And pancakes, thicken and greens and Kool Aid
      When the ‘fridgerator naked then the cupboard is bare
      People got to strip naked, stick ‘em up in the air
      Wasn't lies when they told you wasn't nothin' to fear
      Somethin' don't feel right out here, nahmsayin'? Check it out

      [Chorus]
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I don't feel it no more
      Things don't feel right over here
      Lately I ain't been seein' clear
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      Seems to me nowadays things have changed
      I don't know if I feel the same

      [Verse 2-Black Thought]
      Look, my eyes open ‘cause I'm really a rocksmith
      And when inviting me thoughts, I'm really unboxin'
      My main adversary in this silly concoction
      Freeze your face like bosilium toxin
      If you ain't tryin' to get popped, then give me a option
      Helicopters choppin' from Philly to Compton
      The Jones is the richest since dismissin' the Johnson's
      If you ain't sayin' nothin', you a system's accomplice
      It should play with your conscience, do away with the nonsense
      I'm overseeing anything within my circumference
      This ain't a press junket, I ain't seekin' responses
      I stand where the people got the heat in they pocket
      You mesmerized by the calm nonchalant-ness
      I spit a dart, rub on some John Hitchcock shit
      If you ain't speakin' your life, your rhyme's adopted
      If it don't feel right, then stop it, you nahmsayin'?

      [Chorus]
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I don't feel it no more
      Things don't feel right over here
      Lately I ain't been seein' clear
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      Seems to me nowadays things have changed
      I don't know if I feel the same

      [Verse 3-Black Thought]
      Yo, field you work in, weapon producin'
      Natural disaster got the planet in a panic
      We all gots to make that livin'
      Sex, drugs, murder, politics and religion
      Forms of hustlin', watch who you put all your trust in
      Worldwide, we coincide with who sufferin'
      Who never had shit and ain't got nothin'
      But most strugglin', and make you wanna run up in the ma' fuckin'
      With hots on for a piece of the cake back
      I can't work for it, I can certainly take that
      I'm fired up, thinkin' about the payback, except
      You fuck around and be a enemy of the state, black
      Ill, but that'd be too real for TV
      It's crazy when you too real to be free
      If you ain't got no paper then steal this CD
      Listen man, I'll let you know how it feel to be me, it don't feel

      [Chorus]
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I don't feel it no more
      Things don't feel right over here
      Lately I ain't been seein' clear
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      It don't feel right, it don't feel right
      It don't feel, it don't feel, I can't feel it no more
      Seems to me nowadays things have changed
      I don't know if I feel the same

      For all the times I mess up
      when we mess up

      Dear sister
      Got me twisted up in prison
      I miss yah
      Crying
      Looking at my nieces and newphews picture
      They say don't let this cruel world get yah
      Kinda suspicious,
      Swearing one day you might leave me
      for someone thats richer
      Twist the cap off the bottle
      I Take a sip And see tommorrow
      Gotta make if I have to Beg and Borrow
      Reading love letters
      late night, locked down, and quiet
      If brothers don't recieve their mail
      Best believe we riot
      Eating Jack mat
      Staring at walls of Silence
      Inside this cage
      Where they captured all my rage and violence
      In time I learned a few lessons
      Never fall for riches
      Aplogizies to my TRUE sisters
      Far from bitches
      Help me raise my black nation
      Reperations are due
      Its true
      Caught up in this world
      I took advantage of you
      So tell the babies how I love them
      Precious boys and girls
      Born black in this white mans world
      and all I heard was

      [Chorus]

      Who knows what tommorrow brings
      In this world where everyone lies
      Where to go
      No matter how far I find
      To let you know
      That You're not alone

      Being born with less
      I must confess
      Only adds on to the stress
      Two gunshots to my homies head
      Died in his rest
      Shot him to death
      and Left him bleeding for his family to see
      I pass his casket
      Gently asking
      Is there heaven for G's?
      My homeboys doing life
      Begging mama be stressing
      Shedding tears
      When her son finally ask that questions
      Where my daddy at?
      Mama, Why we live so poor?
      Why you crying?
      Heard you late night
      Throught my bedroom door
      Now do you love me mama?
      Why do they keep calling me nigger?
      Get my wieght up, with my hate
      and pay 'em back when I'm bigger
      Still thugging in this jail cell
      MIssing my block
      Hearing brothers screaming all night
      Wishing they'd stop
      Proud to be black
      But why do we act like
      We don't love oursleves
      Don't look around
      busta (you sucka)
      Check yourselves
      know what if means to be black
      whether a man or girl
      we're still struggling in this
      White man's world

      [Chorus]

      (we must fight)
      Who knows what tommorrow brings
      In this world where everyone lies
      Where to go
      No matter how far I find
      To let you know
      That You're not alone

      So tell me why you changed
      Choosing new direction
      In a blink of an eye
      My time away just made perfection
      You think I'd die
      Not gonna cry
      Why should I care
      Like we holding on to love
      Thats no longer there
      Can you please help me
      God Bless me please
      Keep my seeds healthy
      Banging on my enemies Bleed
      While my G's healthy
      Hoping they bury me
      With ammunition, weed, and shells
      Just in case they trip in heaven
      Ain't no G's hell
      Sister sorry for the pain
      That I caused your heart
      I know I'll change

      I never meant to cause drama
      To my sister and Mama

      THAT"S MY SONG!!!
      We are not citizens of amerikkka. We are victims of amerikkka.
