    Lyrics

    featuring Tragedy King Tee Grand Puba Def Jef Chubb Rock



    (Chorus)

    Keep control...



    (Tradegy the Intelligent Hoodlum)

    When I made arrest the president America ate me

    Spoke the truth that the gov't hates me

    They labeled me a prejudice poet

    I'm speaking the truth as I know it

    I hold on but it's hard for me to handle

    Too much lies corruption and scandal

    Cops want to kill a brother or two

    Who do you call when the gang wears blue

    I ain't going out like an Uncle Tom man

    My gun is loaded and I'm itching to pull the trigger

    I'm marking for death as a funky rhyme sayer

    Corruption flows from the cops to the mayor

    Mali troops will run through your resident

    In my hand will be the head of your president

    All you fess that made a check to throwdown

    Will rise up for a political showdown



    Chorus



    (King Tee)

    Yo, King Tee stepping in on a dark tip

    Open your eyes and your mind and get a grip

    Of the ropes and chains that kept us

    Since we were black they didn't want to except us

    But it's ok, I got my own plan

    'Cause yo, I ain't down wit your program

    The natives cook, wash and clean

    And to the rubbers that throw in the scene

    M-A-N-D-E-L-A

    Now you got a chance to hear what he say

    Since they kept him locked up for so long

    'Cause his skin was black and his mind was strong

    But we need to all stand together though

    And let the red, black and green show

    Become aware of yourself before it gets too late

    Another message from King Tee the great



    Chorus



    (Grand Puba)

    Yo bust it

    Hung wit the flip, got a ?dooby? wig

    Now she thinks she's all that shit, her man got zits

    Hon living lovely, Miss Gouchi

    Even got a Benz when she drives around wit all her friends

    Ugn, miss quick fast in a heedy

    Speedy, speedy, speedy, the bitch is greedy

    Spend so fast, she got caught wit 4 kids

    And the man caught a nice thick bitch

    Now the bitch is on skid

    Screaming how she hates her kids

    The move for the bitch is a thing quick and easy

    Think slick, she better get wit the wick

    'Cause foul, foul, foul is your style

    You tried to run the race but you lost by a mile

    See it everyday, it's the same old sorry song

    How long must this go on



    Chorus



    (Def Jef)

    Power now or never, together forever

    And ever, sever make it endever

    To enlight your brother when

    I recommend to extend a hand

    Expand it then wish strength to fend

    Black women and men from the white power structure

    They stucked ya in, stoled your culture and fuked ya

    And you gave birth to a nation

    You freelabel laid America's economic foundation

    Blood, sweat and tears and fear for years

    But now here was a peer to give you shift in the gears

    The turn of the tables, knowledge and ables

    Us to escape the sterotype wit the labels

    And years of classroom fables, fiction

    Fallacies all sorts and fabrications

    ?For sarge? even fuss

    Star Spangled story, stigma and stunts



    Chorus



    (Chubb Rock)

    I know this 11 year old kid named Jeffery Cowen

    And knowing his father slowing

    And his mother is hoeing

    And now should he be growing

    He's too young to be sewing

    he should just chill and be flowing

    I know he was being malested and sold

    And his mom for being infected

    Never check it, so I invested

    My time and made sure little bro was looked at

    Pops got evicted, not a smack

    Pumped his fists and being that I'm a ?fugiless?

    The bum got done by the one

    And little Jeffery, no more tears left and drip

    Mixed wit seaman on his lip, emotional trip

    It confuses and bent ill thoughts

    In the soul of the youngster

    Is daddy a monster

    That raw creates lip songs and heartache pain

    Drys and open your eyes for the insane
