We R the champions my friend
Til the End
Yet we gotta keep on fighting
Frown or grin lose or win
Conception, cursed! Born in sin
Thinking life’s the worst! It hurts!
Never again putting myself first
I’ve got 3 kids and life is too
Short 4 what it’s worth
And what I got I can’t hide it
Watch me burst – through – wit’
My pen & pad & verse – You! – best act
Like you know before you’re submerged
In sh**, too deep. Pay attention & peep
A style that’s terse. Witness ME emerge
From the depths of the sea. From Pluto to
Earth! It doesn’t get any better than
- Since birth I was born to do the
Damn thang! But…
With no opportunities and a lot of bad luck
You still wonder why it seems niggas don’t
Give a fuck? We stuck! In this ongoing
Age of oppression. See someone’s gotta take
The stage & teach ‘em a lesson. Teach us
Lessons like Martin Luther King Jr. Or Malcolm X
No more wondering or guessing! Explosive in our rages!
Us niggas just can’t escape the cages.
Somebody’s gotta take the stage. It’s outrageous.
And I’m stressin! You stressed da
Fuck out! You know what I’m talkin’ bout?
