"January 28th (#BlackLivesMatter)"

[Intro]

Uh (yeah)
Can I make a million dollars
Off a rap tune?
Hey (check)


[Verse 1]

The real is back, I'm here in fact
I never left, I been grinding for
4 weeks straight I'm outta breath
I been giving you all my answers
I'm not a test but I'm passing
With fly-ing colors, look at this mess
They steadily killin' up all our brothers
I'm in distress, I can go on for days and days
But I digress, The Revolution won't
Be televised man we playing chess?
Cause these Kings and Queens
Don't know they position but hey!
We blessed, I pray we figure it out one day
And nonetheless, I thank you Cole for
Performing "Be Free" on Letterman
Let's use our platform and try to do
Good for-the-better man
Cause it seems we all focused on
Clothes and cheddar man
On the media
That's all they really want us to see!
So they can control us
And we fight and divide
With no UNITY!
But I believe in US, him, her
Them and you and Me!
So keep ya head up
Let Rise Above and just sing (uh)

[Hook]

Don't give 'em too much you
Don't let 'em take control
It's one thing you do
Don't let 'em taint your soul
If you believe in God
One things for sure
If you ain't aim too high
Then you aim too low
(then you aim too low)

[Verse 2]

What's the price of a black man life?
The cops killed Tamir Rice
And ruled it out a homicide
He was only 12
Let's just hope the judge don't let em slide
Cause you stay voting for office
When the justice system is a lie
And we try to get by
But look around, nigga it hurts
Wilson murdered Michael Brown
And was given a reward (a million dollars)
It's a slap in the face
Nigga it's stab with a sword
But the people will soon rise UP
ALL ON one accord...
Try to hold us down for long?
One thing you can't!
Fuckin cowards and scaredy cats?
Nigga One thing we ain't
So you can throw ya tear gas
White oppression and fucking paint
But we gonna stand our fucking ground
Until we motherfucking faint!
Ain't it a damn shame how many lives we lost?
Some white people they can't remorse
They rather not be involved
They rather stay neutral
Defend these cops and black ball
But if u ain't a minority
You can't feel the pain at all....
So don't get mad when I'm screaming out
"Black Lives Matter!"
Cause it's the truth in every sense
Of the word and the latter
White supremacy and white privilege
Is all that's around us
But I be got-damned if
I let that shit drown us
I'm a stand tall
I'm a do my best
On a mission for better days
And we ain't done yet
Continue to stick together
Until everyone's set
They say we fighting for nothing
And tomorrow we'll forgot
Nigga bet

[Hook]

Don't give em too much you
Don't let em take control
It's one thing you do
Don't let 'em taint your soul
If you believe in God
One things for sure
If you ain't aim too high
Then you aim too low
(you aim too low)

[Verse 3]

Justice for KJ
You gon' keep on hearing
Until his parents find peace
And a Valdosta a new sheriff
We tired of the racism
And the constant oppression
You try covering up a murder
And soon you'll be confessing
It's funny
Cause just look at the way that God works
You can reenact your statement
You can say false words
You can threaten the whole city
You can cover up yo' dirt
But nigga
Karma is a bitch and
She knows what you deserve (huh?)
(yeah) I said she knows what you deserve (nigga)
(yeah) I said she knows what you deserve
You can threaten the whole city
You can cover up your words
But nigga Karma is a bitch and
She know What you deserve Chris Prine
She know what you deserve Chris Prine
(yeah) Bell brothers
We know what you deserve, nigga

Operation Title Town (Bitch)

[Outro]
