    [woman singing]
    [stic.man] Beatnuts, dead prez
    [woman] What I wanna sayyy

    [stic.man and/or m1]
    Everytime I look around, I see
    So much drama goin down
    Everytime I look around, I see
    So much fakeness goin down

    Why I'ma- be stingy when I could share?
    Why I'ma- be hateful if I could care?
    Why would I hate my own?
    Or forsake my own?
    Why would I- fuck around and get a jake on my chrome?
    I wouldn't- have to stick you if we all could eat
    It wouldn't be no need for beef
    Dyin over streets we don't even own anyway
    You could get bucked off anyday
    We behind enemy lines
    Y'all still writin Hennessy rhymes
    While I'm tryna find a good price for a nine
    Feel like my life on the line
    That's why a nigga be hype all the time
    Ready for the revolution at the drop a'a dime

    I got a duty to have security for my niggas
    My duty to serve the beautiful black sistas
    A duty to stand wit' anybody that's wit' us
    And fully criticize all bullshittas
    There should be awards presented- to niggas who fight back
    Like Panther jackets, or sistas who light gats
    I'm a full-blooded warrior, ready for change
    Recognize any soldier that's doin the same
    Because I love who I am, and that means everything to me
    My life ain't worth a damn unless I'm dealin with reality
    When I look myself in the eyes, it's just me
    And I don't have to tell nobody no lies, I feel free
    And I would rather deal with the truth and falsehood
    Than bein fake with my people and claimin 'it's all good'
    You can't run away from ya self, so that's useless
    If your word is bond, then you don't have to make excuses

    Everytime I look around, I see
    So much drama goin down
    --Hold up! [intro to 'Old School Survival']
    [crowd] Wait a minute!
    Let's take it back to the old school
    [man talking] Yo, 'memba back in the day?
    When sh- everything was all smooth 'n calm
    And shit was like- [other man]snap? on, nigga
    Yo man, I'm doin it, I'm doin it man
    I'm sayin like-'memba back in like in '70
    Fuckin '79, Nah, nah '87! Tha's my favorite
