  • Money means nothing
    My people mean everything
    Promise when I got little more money that I will never change
    Plus still the same
    I kept my fig on earth
    And I kept my promise
    I kept my people first
    My friends and my family got help to make an anomy
    When i was down at
    Ya here to help an enemy
    So I return in the favour
    I passing forward
    Adversity don't wanna wait for amount tours in
    Face it and brace it
    I promise that you could make it
    Time spit with your family you should keep that secret
    Is more worth then any amount of money?
    So i never let the money smash that from me

    People get money and them start can meople the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me

    Daddyake money
    Is the money that making world you see
    I see a five years son taking out this some
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    I do it for the people the people the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    The people the p was a garbage man
    Mammy ware real hearth
    Me I'm a command
    And the pi on the lord
    Smart smith admit it
    You didn't have a million dollars
    Only thing you said to me was don't key to make you stronger
    Hope for beginning
    Make some sweat amaze
    Look for hope every Tupac and John Lennon
    In rolls sit goes
    What your next move
    Now you have a good president what you gone do
    Be a better man
    Let the crip da hade
    Grow spiritedly
    Hip about your community
    Is the love that mama was cooking
    That making taste good
    Is the people not the money

    That makes the neighbourhood

    People get money and them start can make money
    Is the money that making world you see
    I see a five years son taking out this some
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    I do it for the people the people the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    The people the people the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me

    You see I do it for the love
    Sometimes i do it just because
    But for some reason i can't explain
    I didn't do for the box
    See Nappy Roots is a movement
    That how about the class above
    Da origin of da obvious
    Sell the conscious like a alibis
    We struggle for down the town
    Did the opposite of a largumish ?
    But a hard word pays off
    I'm leaving proof and promise in this
    Educate yourself so any fantasy's of dollars
    You say you want but proof that soon you gonna make it
    But make it to your credulous kiss
    Is day out the future?
    We are the one that damage in it
    Abuse is an opportunity with revolution time in it
    Don't make evidence it
    His movie doesn't have a sequel
    If you don't do for you and your kids did
    Do it for the rest of the people

    People get money and them start can make money
    Is the money that making world you see
    I see a five years son taking out this some
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    I do it for the people the people the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
    The people the people the people
    'Cause money ain't the world to me
