Why (Remix) Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All that I've been given
It's this pain that I be living
(The remix, the remix)
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that?

Why is garbage music selling a lot?
Why is the music industry state of mind real far from hip hop?
Why vote republican if you black?
Why build more jails, less schools 'cuz we under attack?

Why I keep the four pound in the air?
The revolution will not be televised get from around here
Why I keep my right fist in the sky?
I let them know that we gonna make it, don't plan our demise

Why you gotta teach your kids on your own?
'Cuz when you get in the zone
They bringing you in, you both getting cloned

Why we still gotta pray to Allah?
It's hip hop, this the 'New World Order'
And they playin' us hard

Why rappers getting protection?
Why the country ain't flipped
When they jerked the votes the last election?

Why die for all my beliefs?
I gotta look at my kids I rather smile
Then cry when he's sleep, that's why

Why, why they got me strugglin'? Why?
All the brothas locked behind bars
Drained up in the system going crazy
I'm battling my pistol going, why?

Why do niggas say I changed for a girl?
Why you worried 'bout my clothes?
If my flow gon' change the world?
Why you wait till you 30 to try to be hard?
Why I gotta have religion if I believe in God?

Why is Bush acting like he trying to get Osama?
Why don't we impeach him and elect Obama?
Why ain't Rick James remembered for classic hits?
Why do we remember Rick for smackin' a bitch?

Why did Ricky Williams retire? They mad at Miami
Why did Justin sell Janet out and go to the Grammy's?
Why you kill on every song, why you frown at the screen?
Its so many thrones, why we argue who is the King?

Why it's over for the gangsta, why it's over for bling?
Why they hype Britney up, they know she can't sing?
Why a whip and a chain a black American dream?
Why I know it in my heart it remains unseen? Why?

Why, why they got me strugglin'? Why?
All the brothas locked behind bars
Drained up in the system going crazy
I'm battling my pistol going, why?

Registered voter not blood of a panther
Why is the question what is the answer?
Got a suggestion, here's an example
Won't we build our own airline, states, and highways?
Fly to Africa, do some trades with Zimbabwe

Why did Malcolm's mission die with the man?
Why we ain't pick it up where he left it and carry out his plan?
Why the merger try to exclude L.A. Reid?
He brought you Usher, Outkast top-selling CD's

Why do half America got AIDS?
Why do schools care about your son's braids
More than they care for his grades?

Why they hate our white t-shirts and hats turned backwards?
And why is Jesus Christ never played by black actors?
And why there ain't a MC that can touch me nor budge me?
And why is Nas the best thing in rap since Chuck D?

And why this record ain't sell 5 mill yet?
Jada's as real as it get
Put my money where my mouth is
We do something 'bout this

Why, why they got me strugglin'? Why?
All the brothas locked behind bars
Drained up in the system going crazy
I'm battling my pistol going, why?

Yo by thugs, I'm surrounded
Tell me why is it the money motivates me?
But the love keeps me grounded?
Why my cases ain't get thrown out?
And why team USA keep getting blown out?

Why the Democratic party ain't getting with me?
Why they still hanging black bodies in Mississippi?
Yea, why did governor McGrevey get caught with a lizard?
Why they take away Shyne's phone calls and visits?

Why I been hot for 7 years?
Why the new M5 come with 7 gears?
Please tell me why y'all keep making that trash?
Why they reinstating the draft, why is it so much hating you have?

And why sell records and keep working?
Why we go on stage with the bread with the feet working?
Shit Li's real, why when I loved on die you miss them?
Why it took for me to make 'Why' for y'all to listen?

Why, why they got me strugglin'? Why?
All the brothas locked behind bars
Drained up in the system going crazy
I'm battling my pistol going, why?
