lyrics

Every MC with a mic spitting the truth it’s like / when they write so we don’t need no troops to fight / the verse hits and the hearse gets delegated / to nothing more than storage space your mind get’s elevated / albums dedicated to the ones hella jaded / verses written to listen for when you waited / for words of wisdom to lift ‘3em out the bed they laid in / the blueprint and guide to stay alive in these ages / every page is like Malcolm never met assassins / we get the massacre moving like it’s molasses / after you have it you laugh at elephants and asses / see what’s write in front of you with or without glasses

Why ...
We alive what more could you ask for / a dream, being the things we imagine / life worth itself, start with myself / a mic fiend and I know what this mic mean / you might listen yeah you might like it / so while I’m at it I write my wish of life

Music for the masses made for the people / the bullshit see through me and you equals / for the homo, sapien sexual phobic / black and white rich and poor music for the hopeless / for the black-balled short and tall shakers and the movers / all of ya’ll big and small winners and the losers / sinners and the god- fearing blue collar no collar / leaders of the flock haves have less and have nots / twenty-room mansion cardboard box / rocking weaves or the locks / thieves and the cops the diseased and the not / B and Cs we be the degrees of inclusion

Why ...
We alive what more could you ask for / a dream, being the things we imagine / life worth itself, start with myself / a mic fiend and I know what this mic mean / you might listen yeah you might like it / so while I’m at it I write my wish of life

Music for the movement so stop sitting / get in the kitchen put the pot on the range and watch it bubble / we bring that heat to sleep truth to the lost / something to eat for the weak proof of the false off with the roof / precision to mission we brew this beat to the tooth / decision to listen it rests in peace with the youth / your voice ain’t in the booth / the lesser of two strangers look into the mirror vote for him or her to change us / god looking back got the power to rearrange us / leap into the danger / fear breeds anger and anger breeds ignorance / which gives birth to brothers only using they fists it gets worse / believe it ain’t a curse, we’re deceived to see our only value in our purse / but a dollars just a dollar with thieves faces on it / strange fruit hanging from trees traces on it / the race is on and, we busting out our shoes left our laces on the corner / backed by the jazz and blues Coltrane on the horn and / born in this love supreme making dreams come true peace to Hughes / it’s not deferred but preferred to not let it dry shrivel up and die this dream is alive

We alive what more could you ask for / a dream, being the things we imagine / life worth itself, start with myself / a mic fiend and I know what this mic mean / you might listen yeah you might like it / so while I’m at it I write my wish of life
