I think the saddest part is we see it and hear it all around us, we have influences from music, books, tv everything we see around us gives us plenty of insight to whats really going on. Lupes' verses they outline what we see, and it is so true the voice that never speaks in "never" heard, the words never said. But as the lyrics say our news, its a falsity, a crock to keep us so informed on the facts of life that hold no value to me or you. I could care less who's getting married and how much the brits are getting hosed, or how much drugs Charlie Sheens up too. ( god bless the man a hero in his own right )
We are so blinded by bull**** that even when entertainment spells it out for us, (Youtube with lyrics) that the message i feel is lost in the entertainment value. IMO if these artisits we're to take the message mainstream use your 15 secs to out the agenda at a big show brodcast on a world stage, out the ruling majority by making known your thoughts. Don't just drop em in a song thats gonna be track 13 on your next LP hidden from the public eye and only listened to by fans.
When are we going to see a top 10 lyric thats gonna be the next big thing, the tune you hear people walking down the road be bopin too. Thats when I feel songs such as this can open up our eyes and ears to enovke the changes that this music has the power to do. Guess were gonna have to wait for a ballsy studio ex-ec one day to give up the silver spoon. Fat chance but who knows maybe billboard well adopt a play the truth policy and give us a real earfull one day. Only time well tell.....
I don't care if you bump this while your f***** your whip
Or if you stuck to script like plantain chips
Just remember soldier that when the government flips
Its going down harder than the last bullet in the glock clip
Visions of the future toxic in my cranium
Like the byproducts of enriching uranium
Gentrification byproduct like the palladium
So this is the message that I relate to them
'fore they do me like Abu I'm a do I'm a do what I gotta do
You should follow through before they bottle you out of the blue
They treat niggas and spicks like tigers and lions
Cute little babies but when they grow put em behind iron
Let em join the military fight for the country hard
Throw em some college money Get em a green card
Get a black Pinocchio President to lead
But controlled by an old white Gepetto on wall street (Yup Yup)
