They forgot us on the block
Got us in the box
How violent are these cops?
They need an early retirement
How many rallies will I watch?
I ain't got it in me to march
I got a semi to spark
The game's in a drought
Public housing, projects
Cooking up in the Pyrex
My set, my click
Either getting money
Or running from homicide trial
That's if they ain't died yet
Trying to be rich
Still I'm pledging allegiance
A predicate felon, a ghetto leader
Lending my poetical genius
To whoever may need it
I bleed this from Queensbridge
Now living with my feet up
So a president's needed
Y'know these colored folks and Negroes
Hate to see one of their own succeeding
America, suprise us
And let a black man guide us
What's the black pres thinkin on election night
Is it how can I protect my life?
Protect my wife? Protect my rights?
Every other president was nottin' less than white
'Cept Thoman Jefferson and mixed indian blood
And calvin coolers
KKK is like 'what the fuck', loadin' they guns up
I'm loadin' mine too, Ready to ride
Cause I'm ridin with my crew
He dies we die too
But on a positive side, I think Obama provides
Hope and challenges minds
Of all races and colours to erase the hate
And try and love one another, so many political snakes
We in need of a break, I'm thinkin' I can trust this brotha
But will he keep it way real?
Every innocent n! gga in jail gets out on appeal
When he wins will he really care still?
Say a prayer for "do we have to? "
You ain't right, Jeremiah Wrong pastor
In love with a slave master
USA most brave rapper
Bentley Coupe off the richter
B! tchcalledlife, I pimped her
Deacon for defense
Nothing on the stove
Gotta do what we gotta do
We ain't got no governors coming through to help
Anything we need done, we gotta do for self
Newimproved JFK on the way
It ain't the 60's again
Niqqas ain't hippies again
We ain't falling for the same traps
Standing on the balconies
Where they shot the King at
McCain got apologies
Ain't nobody hearing that
