[Verse 1]
I pledge allegiance to the flag with blood on it
Black skin it’s no love it’s more slugs drugs on it
Casualties are blacker, reality will slap ya
We still at the bottom tell that light skinned rapper
Genocide is blacker, defensive like the Packers
Liberty’s an actor, now this for every rapper
When you know who dropped that control verse
Everybody had a verse in 24 hours
But when these cops is killing blacks and they clapping
A lot of these same rappers they be missing in action
Your egos is more important than your people
I break it down in laymen’s terms see thats evil
And see I’m tired of people being trendy with it
Let’s just all pick up the cause truthfully can we just stick with it
We wear the cause like fashion and it’s so trendy
Last week I wore my Trayvon’s, this week my Mike Browns
It’s time to wake up and they calling our bluff
Everybody wanting change but see it’s starting with us

[Hook]
This for my peoples in the struggle watch the Police
I know not all but some are evil watch the Police
Our camera phones be the weapon shoot around
And I’m just tryna make a change if by chance they gun me down

This for my peoples in the struggle watch the Police
I know not all but some are evil watch the Police
Our camera phones be the weapon shoot around
And I’m just tryna make a change if by chance they gun me down

[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
I’m Malcolm X in my black jeep
Militant and imminent Rosa Parks in my back seat, pack heat
Bullets be raising just like a track meet
Track and field packing steel they be like you rapping still
I see a whole lot of ice bucket challenges
People easily distracted and the damage is
Still in shock tell me is it real or not
Raised over three hundred thousand for a killer cop
Now can you tell me what’s the problem ya’ll
Easily distracted that’s the problem ya’ll
Calling our bluff
Everybody wanting change but it starts with us

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
I got cops on my block shooting kids in a rush
But let me tell you what we do and let me talk about us
We get mad for a minute then it’s back to the grind
And we just do it for the gram and we just do it for the vine
Back lash stunting with your pants sagging after this
Hash tag fronting we some band wagon activist
Until the next scenario they don’t take us serious
The verdict is and from the jury is we be delirious
Evidence is ill can you tell me how it feel right
President is black but see the politics are still white
Ill right, Nightmare on Elm Street getting realer
Black up in America that’s the new thriller
