Raised By Gees

 

ugh

yea, yea, yea

ugh

hey, hey, hey, hey

[Forget a high five, throw up a high fist] 3x

ugh

yea, yea, yea, yea

 

I’m a man

Do you know what that means?

Stepping up to a challenge

By any means

 

I done had knives pulled on me

And used words as weaponry

To walk away peacefully

 

Duck & Dodged bullets from drive bys

No innocent, they just see a black guy

In a hoodie, a fitted and some Tims

Stereotypical lens

So they bust on anybody that looks like him,

Him and him – the enemy

That really looks like them-

Selves

 

Scared of the mirror

Scared of reflection

Scared to commit suicide

So they start committing homicides

 

Banging on themselves

Banging on themselves

When they look up

Nothing’s left

 

Banging on themselves

Banging on themselves

When they look in

Nothing’s left

 

I was raised on Huey & Bobby

What you know about – camaraderie?

Red, Black & Green in my DNA

Forget a high five, throw up a high fist

 

I was raised on Huey & Bobby

What you know about – camaraderie?

Red, Black & Green in my DNA

Forget a high five, throw up a high fist

 

I’m running for office

People’s champion

I may have to die for the title

That’s cool, I don’t mind dying for the people

I got a we mindset

Keep your I’s to thine self

 

Fred Hampton Speaks

 

I was raised on Huey, Fred & Bobby

What you know about – camaraderie?

Red, Black & Green in my DNA

Forget a high five, throw up a high fist

 

I was raised on Malcolm & Garvey

What you know about – camaraderie?

Red, Black & Green in my DNA

Forget a high five, throw up a high fist
