Intro

Knowledge is power, and knowledge can be the difference between life
Or death... you should know the truth and the truth shall set you
Free.

Verse 1

I was raised like a muslim
Prayin to the east
Nature of my life relates rhymes I release
Like a cannon
Cuz I been plannin to be rammin what I wrote
Straight on a plate down your throat
So digest as I suggest we take a good look
At whos who while Im readin from my good book
And lets dig into every nook and every cranny
Set your mind free as I slam these thoughts
And just like a jammy goes pow [fx: gunshots]
Youre gonna see what Im sayin now
You cant be sleepin
Cuz things are gettin crazy
You better stop being lazy
Theres many people frontin
And many brothers droppin
All because of dumb things, let me tell you somethin
Ive been through so much that Im such
A maniac, but I still act out of faith
That we can get the shit together so I break
On fools with no rhymes skills messin up the flow
And people with no sense who be movin much too slow
And so, you will know the meaning of the gang starr
Guru with the mic and premier raise the anchor
Swiftly, as we embark on a journey
I had to get an attorney
I needed someone to defend my position
Decisions I made, cuz now its time to get paid
And ladies, these rhymes are like the keys to a dope car
Maybe a lexus or a jaguar
Still, all of that is just material
So wont you dig the scenario
And just imagine if each one is teachin one
Well come together so that we become
A strong force, then we can stay on course
Find your direction through introspection
And for my people out there I got a question
Can we be the sole controllers of our fate?
Now whos gonna take the weight?

Verse 2

The weight of the world is heavy on my mind
So as my feelings unwind I find
That some try to be down just cuz its trendy
Others fall victim to envy
But Ill take the road less travelled
So I can see all my hopes and my dreams unravel
Relievin your stress, expressin my interest
In the situation that youre facin
Thats why Im down with the nation
Spirituality supports reality
We gotta fight with the right mentality
So we can gain what is rightfully ours
This is the meaning of the chain and the star
Land is power, so gimme forty acres
Lets see how far I can take ya
Original invincible
Thats how Im lookin at it
I use my rhymes like a glock automatic
Any means necessary, Im goin all out
Before the rains bring the nuclear fallout
So let me ask you, is it too late?
Ayo, whos gonna take the weight?
