Protests and growing national outcry continues
Over the death of George Floyd
Last night, people protesting in Minneapolis escalated
As demonstrators were lashed by tear gas and rubber bullets
The main message here, the main message here, the main message here
Is that they want to see those officers involved
They want to see those officers arrested
Officers arrested
(I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe)
Trade my 4 x 4 for a G63, ain’t no more free Lil Steve
I gave ’em chance and chance and chance again
I even done told them, please
I find it crazy the police shoot you and know that you dead
But still, tell you to freeze
Fucked up, I see what I seen
I guess that means to hold him down if he says he can’t breathe
It’s too many mothers that’s grieving
They kill us for no reason
Been going on for too long to get even
Throw us in cages like dogs and hyenas

I went to court and they sent me to prison
My mama was crushed when they said I can’t leave
First I was drunk, then I sobered up quick
When I heard all that time that they gave to Taleeb

He got a life sentence plus
We just some products of our environment
How the fuck they gon’ blame us?
You can’t fight fire with fire

I know, but at least we can turn up the flames some
Every colored person ain’t dumb and all whites not racist
I be judging by the mind and heart, I ain’t really into faces
Fucked up, the way that we livin’ is not getting better

You gotta know how to survive
Crazy, I had to tell all of my loved ones
To carry a gun when they going outside
Stare in the mirror whenever you drive
Overprotective, go crazy for mine
You gotta pay attention to the signs
Seem like the blind following the blind

Thinking ’bout everything that’s going on
I boost security up at my home
I’m with my kind if they right or they wrong
I call him now, he’ll pick up the phone

And it’s five in the morning, he waking up on it
Tell ’em wherever I’m at, then they comin’
I see blue lights, I get scared and start runnin’
That shit be crazy, they ‘posed to protect us
Throw us in handcuffs and arrest us
While they go home at night, that shit messed up
Knowing we needed help, they neglect us
Wondering who gon’ make them respect us


I can see in your eye that you fed up
Fuck around, got my shot, I won’t let up
They know that we a problem together
They know that we can storm any weather
It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we gotta start somewhere


Might as well gon’ ‘head start here
We did have a hell of a year
I’ma make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear

Fuck it, I’m goin’ on the front line
He gon’ bust your ass if you come past that gun line
You know when the storm go away, then the sunshine
You gotta put your head in the game when it’s crunch time


I want all my sons to grow up to be monsters
I want all my daughters to show out in public
Seems like we losing our country
But we gotta stand up for something, so this what it comes to


Every video I see on my conscience
I got power, now I gotta say somethin’
Corrupted police have been the problem where I’m from
But I’d be lying if I said it was all of them


I ain’t do this for the trend, I don’t follow them
Altercations with the law had a lot of them
People speaking for the people, I’m proud of them
Stick together, we can get it up out of them

I can’t lie like I don’t rap about killing and dope
But I’m telling my youngins to vote
I did what I did ’cause I didn’t have no choice or no hope
I was forced to just jump in and go


This bullshit is all that we know, but it’s time for a change
Got time to be serious, no time for no games
We ain’t takin’ no more, let us go from them chains
God bless their souls, every one of the names


It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we gotta start somewhere
Might as well gon’ ‘head start here


We did had a hell of a year
I’ma make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear

They trainin’ officers to kill us
Then shootin’ protestors with these rubber bullets
The regular people, I know that they feel it
These scars too deep to heal us


What happened to COVID? Nobody remembers
It ain’t makin’ sense, I’m just here to vent
It happens to one of your people, it’s different
We get it, the system is wicked, just learn how to pick it

Knowledge is power, I swear I’m a witness, I know that I’m gifted
I won’t go too deep ’cause I’m scared they’ll get me
Ain’t scared to admit it, some shit I can’t mention
It’s people who can, well, here’s the chance


I won’t take the stand, but I’ll take a stand for what I believe
Must not be breathing the air that I breathe
You know that the way that I bleed, you can bleed

I never been a fan of police
But my neighborhood know I try to keep the peace
So it’s only right that I get in the streets
March for a reason, not just on GP
Our people died for us to be free
Fuck do you mean? This was a dream

Now we got the power that we need to have
They don’t want us with it and that’s why they mad, yeah

It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we gotta start somewhere


Might as well gon’ ‘head start here
We did have a hell of a year
I’ma make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear


It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we gotta start somewhere


Might as well gon’ ‘head start here
We did have a hell of a year
I’ma make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear
