Glad to see some hip hop isnt just about drugs, strippers, drinking and committing crimes. Most of the mainstream hip hop I hear here in the US is only about those things. I hear hip hop all the time at work and none of it is about enlightenment or awareness. I;m glad someone pointed out the good in some of the hip hop. However many of the bands on this thread I have never heard of except Prodigy but I never considered them hip hop and then Tu Pac who I always liked. When I am on a computer with sound I will have to listen to these songs. Thanks for the post though! S&F!

You are totally misunderstanding what Tupac said in They Dont Give A # About Us.

He says:

Some say they expect Illuminati to take my body to sleep
Niggas at the party with they shotties just as rowdy as me
Before I fear computer chips I gotta deal with brothers flipping
I don't see no devils bleeding only black blood dripping

What he is saying is that instead of the Black race, or the people in the ghetto irrelevant of color, deal with the Illuminati they should focus on their own problems first. He's saying, before he fears computer chips, he has to look out for someone shooting him. There's no Illuminati killing people in his neighborhood, they are killing each other.

Pac's whole stance with the "Killuminati" was stop blaming everything on a higher power, new world order, illuminati, devil, whatever, and take responsibility for your own actions and the actions in the community. Fix that, and those higher powers wont win.

I agree, if you really want to battle the Illuminati, fix your homes, our streets, the neighborhoods, poverty, etc. There is a lot the community can do if they band together to improve the community, instead of blowing each others brains out and blaming the Illuminati.

thanks for your insight i do agree with your points, i hadnt thought of it that way in the deeper sense. i do believe he says flee but it could be fear.. either way it is generally a positive message. we know now that the Illuminati does indeed exist and rfid chips is one of their main agendas. it is a shame pac was taken from us, he was a great wise artist and had powerful influence, he had taken an interest in politics too before he was 'assassinated', it would have been interesting to see where that could have led.

Lyrics^



IF man is the father
the son is the center of the earth
In the middle of the universe
THEN WHY is this verse comin
Six times rehearsed
Don't freestyle much
but I write a lot such… word
Amongst the fiends
Controlled by the screens
What does it all mean
All this # i'm seein ha ha
Human beings scream vocal javelins
Signs of a local nigga unravelin Uh huh
My wandering
Got my ass wondering
Where Christ is
In all this crisis
Hatin Satan
Never knew what nice is
Check the papers
While I bet on Isis
More than your eye can see
And ears can hear
Year by year
All the sense disappears
Nonsense perseveres
Prayers laced wit fear
Beware
2 triple 0 is near
CHORUS:
It might feel good
It might sound a lil somethin
but Damn the game
If it don't mean nuttin
What is game who got game
Where's the game
In life
Behind the game
Behind the game
I got game
She got game
We got game
They got game
He got game
It might feel good
It might sound a lil somethin
But # the game
If it ain't sayin nuttin
Damn was it somethin I said
Pretend you don't see
So you turn your head
Race scared of it's shadow
Does it matter?
Thought of reperations
Got em playin wit the population
Nothing to lose
Everythings approved
People used
Even murders excused
White men in suits
Don't have to jump
Still theres 1001 ways
To lose wit the shoes
God takes care of ol folks and fools
While the devil takes care
Of makin all the rules
Folks don't even own themselves
Payin mental rent
To corporate presidents
1 outta 1 million residents
Being dissident
Who ain't kissin it
The politics of chains and whips
Got the sick
Missin chips and all the championships
What's love got to do
Wit what you got
Don't let a win get to your head
Or a loss to your heart
Nonsense perseveres
Prayers laced wit fear
Beware
2 triple O is near
CHORUS
Ya that's right everybody got game
We just here to let u all know
that PE is in full effect till the year 2000 Joe
My man sing it.
There’s something happenin here
What it is aint exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Yeah that’s right HA HA
Telling me that I got to beware
Its time we stopped children
What’s that sound everybody look
What’s going down
Hey yo...
I don't think they heard ya Steve
sing it again kick it to them again
One more time
Its time we stopped children
What’s that sound everybody look
What’s going down
Its time we stopped children
What’s that sound everybody look
What’s going down
That's right boy PE in full effect boy
Till the year 2000 Joe
BACKGROUND:
Stop look what's that sound (come on sing it)
Everybody knows what's goin down (Here we go again yo)
Stop look what's that sound (Hey hey)
Everybody knows what's goin down
Background continues...
These are some serious times
That we livin in G
And our new world order
Is about to begin
You know what I’m sayin
Now the question is…
Are you ready for the real revolution
Which is the evolution of the mind
If you seek than you shall find
That we all come from the divine
You dig what I’m sayin
Now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
That are written on the walls of life
Than universally we will stand
And divided we will fall
Cause love conquers all
You understand what I’m sayin
This is a call to all you sleepin souls
WAKE UP and be in control of your own CYCLE
And be on the lookout for those spirits tonight
Trying to steal your light
You know what I’m sayin
Look whats inside yourself and
PEACE, give thanks, live life and believe
You dig me
You got ME

Flee or fear, it all boils down to the same really.

But great thread. Good work putting it all together.

And yes, huge shame, and ironic in the context above, that he was killed and the US Government was involved.

"Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five released the first well-known sociopolitical rap song in 1982 called "The Message", which inspired numerous rappers to address social and political subjects."

This one is relatively short; I won't say much about it
What's the point if you're still gon' doubt
History is a weapon being used against us
Humanity has been abused before but few remember
Human hybrid, Hubble iris, double-sided untouchable
When it comes to rhyming, but I struggle in private
"One Ought Not To Think", in other words stop thinking
Humankind is now on the brink of extinction
The Eagle has landed, one of von Braun
Handpicked the evil bastard called "Magnum Innominandum"
These ice-age quotes opposed Helios
Confusing the most yet I find it remedial
Turn the radio and TV off, think for a second
Technology is a blessing but it's also a weapon
A weapon of mass destruction givin' global instructions
Teaching us how to hate but does it in a way that we love it
Take my beloved rap music, erase the beat
Consumers act like they're afraid of intelligent speech
The rhymes are imagined in theory
Then itemized into a query
It takes more than your ears to hear me
Meditate; you will see it clearly
Elevate to a level where your judgment isn't impaired daily
Before the New World Order right around the corner
One day soon they gon' lock down the borders
I ain't a activist, I can't do #
I'd rather be a pacifist with a full clip
Keep sayin' your prayers, they won't care
God won't hear, do something, you won't dare
It's happened before, it'll happen again
It's happening over there; it'll spread here my friend
"One Ought Not To Think", in other words stop thinking
Mankind is now on the brink of extinction
Lost wisdom from the lost kingdom
Humankind is now on the brink of extinction


Lyrics^
