You sell your soul like you sell a piece of ass
Slave to the dead white leaders on paper
Welfare cases, rapists and hoes
All reinforced by your TV show
Exotic and beautiful videos

Yeah, a jail's a sanctuary for the walking dead
Fucks with your head when every black leader ends up dead
Somebody said, Our greatest destiny is to become white
But white is not pure and hate is not pride
Just 'cause civil rights is law doesn't mean that we all abide

Tell me are you free? Campaign for every dead nigga boulevard
So y'all young motherfuckers can drive down it in your fancy cars
Free, try to hold on to some Africa of the past
One must remember it's other Africans that helped enslave your ass

Everybody's just trying to make that dollar
Remember what Jesse used to say? I am somebody
No longer do I blame others for the way that we be
'Cause niggas need to redefine what it means to be free

I can't even tell my brothers and sisters that they're fine
This absence of beauty in their heart and mind
Stopped breastfeeding the child, you put 'em on the cow
And now you wonder why they act wild

You see brown folks are the keepers of the earth
Unifiers of the soul and mind
Not these wannabe gaudy pimps and thugs
Wearing diamond watches from African slave mines
Perhaps to be free is to all love those who hate me
And die a beautiful death and make pretty brown babies

Campaign for every dead nigga boulevard
So y'all young motherfuckers can drive down it in your fancy cars
Try to hold on to some Africa of the past
One must remember it's other Africans that helped enslave your ass

Everybody's trying to make that dollar
Remember what Jesse used to say? I am somebody
No longer do I blame others for the way that we be
Niggas need to redefine what it means to be free

Campaign for every dead nigga boulevard
So y'all young motherfuckers can drive down it in your fancy cars
Try to hold on to some Africa of the past
One must remember it's other Africans that helped enslave your ass

Everybody's trying to make that dollar
Remember what Jesse used to say? I am somebody
No longer do I blame white folks for the way that we be
Niggas need to redefine what it means to be free

Understand young folks
When you put property rights ahead of human rights
Understand you're tampering with nature
That's right, you see, property rights is controlled by man
And human rights is controlled by nature
