Ozomatli feat. Chali 2na - Coming War

[Chorus]
We see a coming war
We see a coming war

Now
Can you imagine this world with no oppression?
And no need to dabble in greed and transgression
The solution for murder and prostitution
Never glorify this pollution on television
Corrupt an entire nation
Explicit images
Never freeing Mumia regardless of proven innocence
Turning to crime and not using intelligence
What makes me wonder sometimes are we in hell or
Inches away from confronting the powers that be
Saw in seconds what has taken some hours to see
Temps is hot enough to melt a bullion
More than a million people are ready
For rebellion
This # is ill
Sun set to the crack of dawn
If you're black or blonde
Uncle Sam is robbing you blind and putting shackles 'pon
The minds of your children for real son
Beware this system and go to war with this institution.

They see a coming war
They see a coming war

They expect those of us who peep to not see
Medical benefits should be cheap if not free (right?)
The richest people are those without morals
Cuz once they get inside they tend to keep the door closed
Lord knows they killing us quick and clean
>From baseheads to people addicted to nicotine
Man-made diseases where skin cells corrode
To ones where if infected you die from common colds
Economical foes they pose the true threat
Using your tax dollars to sell and produce death
What's left?
We got guns and drug trafficking
Government will be backing
And blaming Latin and African brothers for dirty work done
The # they do not only hurts young
But it's provoking revolutionary circum-
Stances
Slow like molasses
This is a message to the masses
Never ass kiss

[Chorus]

Emergency, emergency, evacuate the premises immediately
Emergency, emergency

Now
Open your ear
Cause slavery will appear
When corporate cutthroats control your career
The treats of life are toned and ain't no way the ripple fix
Beware the microchip that replaces the triple six
Which one?
Are you a soldier who fights against fraud
Or pawns in this game on this government's chess board?
The signs are clearly defined
It's merely your mind state
Wars coming my people so stay awake

Chali 2na is from Jurassic 5 - you would have to have heard of them... They are ledgendary? - They are largely based in Los Angeles, but Jurassic 5 travel around the world on tours all the time... Ozomatli is a Latino group... They are seriously some of the best musicians I have ever heard...

They are pretty under-ground, so I dunno how that will mix with all those who think that people like 50-Cent are hip-hop...

Well
KMK all about war on drugs if you listen to them I think they're pretty cool..


Kottonmouth Kings - Peace Not Greed



A lonely teenage daydream,
Of things I just might be,
A surreal kind of thinking,
Keeps on drifting in on me,
My twisted body is lifeless,
Not so their twisted minds,
Peace through power their motto,
Power through peace their crime,

Product of our environment [x8],

Maybe one day they will legalize weed,
In the year TWO 'G' the planet could be deceased,
We plead to the fleece while we're beggin' on our knees,
In our hometown Cali with bears and green trees,
Birds and the bees, hot sand on the beach,
Shells in the sea and I'm living in peace,
Like a dog on a leash locked up with no key,
I gotta smoke under cover, Mother# the police,

Yeah, see the matching hand and they're robbing from the hat,
The laws an illusion to symbolize that,
Putting us in jail for the ?? tax,
I can see the wires in the levitating act,
I can hear the lies and they're calling them facts,
I can see the bars and they're lookin all cracked,
I read between the lines but the lines are all cracked,
I can feel the knife turning in my back,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

You are a sacred being of light,
Projected into reality for a purpose,
Demand the right to your moment,
In this holographic gift with no rules, no borders,
Except for those who you choose to accept and live by,

Abolish government means nothing to me,
Forget about god, he's not here to see,
We live by a system, a perfect mold,
People perfect people who are poor and old,
Lies were spent on a sad defense,
They said we're lookin for a method in this world ??,
Presidents are named,
Presidents are labeled highest man on the government table,

America, land of the free,
Free to the power of the people in uniform [x2],

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

Society, # it!
I've had enough!
The system's full of crooks, straight up corrupt,
You look like a decoy by the knife a duck,
And your money keeps em smokin on a BC Bluff,
You're caught up in the headlights of my V-Dub bus,
TSOL and the Kings about to even things up,
Your birds will take all the air out the sky,
Bring em down to our level,
You can work, can't hide,

Product of our environment [x8]

A lonely teenage daydream,
Of things I just might be,
A surreal kind of thinking,
Keeps on drifting in on me,
My twisted body is lifeless,
Not so their twisted minds,
Peace through power their motto,
Power through peace their crime,

The government keeps tight control over the population,
While the schools teach the kids restricted education,
Murder, Rape, Sex, Underage prostitution,
They got the war on pot, they got the wrong solution,

I wake and I bake, nowhere to escape,
Livin' life in a tank they invade my space,
Betrayed full of hate while they're shootin all blanks,
Society's lost in a paranoid state,

It's the illusion of ownership, It's take what you can get,
The banks are the loan sharks and everyone's in debt,
And if you get ahead how quickly you forget,
You're hanging from a burning rope without a safety net,
They tax you when you sell,
They tax you when you buy,
They take half when you live,
They take half when you die,
These are the lies that they are stating as facts,
I can see the wires of the levitating act,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

I'm glad that I can read,
I'm glad that I can write,
I read their #in bull#,
Every single night,
When off in my head went a little #in light,
It told me what was wrong it told me what was right,
World bank-Power and control,
Issuing the money and they're dollin' out the roles,
Charging what they want to with the money, the control,
Living in their nightmare, giving them your soul!

Yeah, I haven't heard much of KMK but from reading that I might have to get a few mp3's to tie me over until pay-day... I think its good that there is a hip-hop group out there who are against the drugs in soceity - atleast there is still someone out there who is setting a half-decent example for the next generation...

Has anyone here heard of a independant rapper called Benefit ? - He has a lot of good stuff aswell...

That is peter tosh in his avatar. He was a reggae artist and was killed for his beliefs.

To get on topic, i like the hieroglyphics,they have a unique style. Immortal technique is a good one also. Not too many new ppl/artists rap about anything anymore. Theres no story,not talking about anything. Underground is the way to go.
