  • [verse 1]
    Played in Cincinnati
    Wit my whole head nappy
    Made a rally in the street
    Wit nothin but a beat
    Gotta grudge against a judge
    Kick em out that seat
    You are what you eat
    So what you eatin
    Same message to your mind
    Be self defeatin
    Sick n tired of bein sick
    And tired of bein beaten
    Saw em drop it like it
    Was way too hot and too fast
    For hip hop doo wop rock or bop
    Ain't here to hurt you
    Don't hang in them circles
    Government ain't got me
    Yet so y'all don't stop me
    See a stampede of fake cats
    Runnin from bill cosby
    What does he gotta do wit you doin you?
    Y'all know what?
    Dj lord gimme that cut
    Bring that beat back
    That's what's up

    [verse 2]
    Feedback from truly
    Gotta think outta this
    Box of hard knocks
    Lined em up at fort knox
    To die in iraq
    You don't know I rock?
    What you under a rock?
    Old cats beggin us to bring that beat back
    Each generation thinks
    The next one is wack
    Jumpstarted in the daze of crack
    R&b reagan, daddy bush
    Way the hell on back
    Pray to god
    Feel like I got a church in myself, good god uh
    Can't get no help
    I say again healthcare cutback
    Sht is wack
    Bring that beat back

    [verse 3]
    They say the youth don't matter
    And the old don't mind
    It takes a lotta spine
    To build all them young minds

    Some of us get ghetto at the wrong damn time
    Album what? we just makin one at a time
    To save another brother whose life on the line
    A big shot to claim some rocks and shine
    Signs of a soul gone solo
    Robbed blind
    A very small part of half the worlds crime
    Runaway child blown by an old land mine
    Little ones workin in diamond mines

    So cats can say what's hers and what's mine
    Diamonds is girls best friend
    So whys he cryin

    [verse 4]
    See when y'all hear it get near it
    And you recognize the lyrics
    You trained to refrain
    And you start to fear it
    Like today there ain't racism
    Obviously y'all ain't see
    Black folks on tv
    Judgement calls
    Made on behalf of you and me
    Or you and I
    Do or die
    I say an I for an I
    Dividin line
    Got the poor people
    Payin for crime
    Corporations gettin paid off our jailtime
    Now y'all can tell russell
    Yes I knock the hustle
    Cause 2 million in lockdown
    Under federal muscle
    Beyond the streets
    These kids is always watchin
    Watching some of these jerks when they go berserk
    So I work
