They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, still we choose to ignore the obvious
Man, this history don't acknowledge us
We were scholars long before colleges

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, but still we choose to ignore the obvious
We are the slave and the master
What you lookin for? You the question and the answer

We trust no black leaders, use the stove to heat us
Powdered eggs and government cheeses
The calendars with Martin, JFK and Jesus
Gotta be fresh to go to school with fly sneakers

Schools with outdated books, we are the forgotten
Summers, coolin off by the fire hydrant
Yeah, I'm from the ghetto
Where old black women talk about their sugar level

Its not unusual to see photos of dead homie's funerals
Aluminum foil on TV antennas
Little TV sit on top the big TV, eatin TV dinners
Girls dye their hair with Kool-Aid

They gave us lemons, we made lemonade
But this nigger's paid, ancestral slaves
Descendant of kings, it's necessary I bling
Put rims on everythin, wear tims on every scene

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, still we choose to ignore the obvious
Man, this history don't acknowledge us
We were scholars long before colleges

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, but still we choose to ignore the obvious
We are the slave and the master
What you lookin for? You the question and the answer

Do I mean it like a slave master, nigger?
No, I'm gangsta, gotta eat rappers
My abbreviation was young when I caught the cases
That should mean the court could see my changes
Take off the bracelets

Savers went broke, smokes, our diesel, need no Bowflex
My chest still cut up like a bag of dope
Thought patterns consist of boss matters
Spit Moses' lost commandments like a gross sandwich out my mouth

Toast to government cameras peepin us, every week
I must have my cars, homes and phones squeaked for bugs
But this is what I was dreamin of
Between cuttin hard coke with new razors slicin my fingers up

They used to string us up, we wanted everythin
But the one bringin us cake be the snakes like the
Like the New Jack City wedding scene
No time for mistake, tryna get it like metering

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, still we choose to ignore the obvious
Man, this history don't acknowledge us
We were scholars long before colleges

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, but still we choose to ignore the obvious
We are the slave and the master
What you lookin for? You the question and the answer
(My nig', what up my nig'? Yep)

People afraid of criticism
But I always put myself in a sacrificial position
They been know I ain't just rappin for fame
I got my old homie hassles to father, askin for change

Yep, I get it cash up, this paper don't matter
They see me from skinny to fatter, when I rap about war
They got a tendency to scatter, they ain't my backup no more
So now my enemies are at my front door

Cause anytime we mention our condition
Our history or existence, they callin it reverse racism
Still to this day the streets torn, my brother Jung'
I'll always have a seat for him, not behind me, beside me
You'll always know where to find me

They say the close ones will hurt you
So let's keep a small circle
On the road to riches and diamond rings
In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is the king

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, still we choose to ignore the obvious
Man, this history don't acknowledge us
We were scholars long before colleges

They say we N I double G E R
We are much more, but still we choose to ignore the obvious
We are the slave and the master
What you lookin for? You the question and the answer
