Sponsored LinksRockstar lifestyle ain't gone make it, too many black men locked in cages
If I get wasted and you get wasted, what we gone do by the next generation x2
Capitalism was invented by the white boys
Even prison was invented by the white boys
So you better watch out or they might force
You to snort white boy, white girl, or white horse
Up north racist
Down south racist
Same government, leaders just change places
7 trillion dollars on Wallstreet wasted
How much more they gonna spend on the spaceship?
I gotta face it
You gotta face it
Soon everybody gone be butt-naked
How much longer do you think we gone take it?
Still not free and still no 40 acres
Rockstar lifestyle ain't gone make it, too many black men locked in cages
If I get wasted and you get wasted, what we gone do by the next generation?
I used wake up in the morning, first thing, gotta taste it
Drunk out my mind on a everyday basis
Stay throwin up, Andre by the cases
Smoking mad blunts, so much money that I wasted
Going through the stages
Growing up young, black, male trynna make it
Caught up in the Matrix
Was it lack of discipline or deep, self-hatred?
Supposed it coulda been a form of self-medication
Stress on my mind it was a way to escape it
Wash away the problems when I didn’t wanna face them
I told myself it was just recreation
I can stop anytime G, its not like I’m base’n
But, deep inside I felt my health deterioratin
Gout in my leg, a toothache so irratatin
Wasted mad time, coulda been paper chasin
Slippin on my pimpin, catchin all kinda cases.
Learnin the hard way, first-hand education
Had to get my body to break and make some changes
Had to get back on solid foundation
Tighten up my diets, workouts, and meditation
It don’t happen in a day, it take patience
Still everyday is a challenge, but I’mma make it
A Soldier don’t run from the struggle, he embrace it
Don’t worry what another nigga think
That’s a liberation
