[riley singing]<br />

1999<br />

Beatnuts, dead prez<br />

<br />

Chorus:<br />

Everytime i look around, i see so much drama goin down<br />

Everytime i look around, i see sp much fakeness goin down<br />

<br />

[]<br />

Why i'ma, be stingy when i can share<br />

Why i'ma, be hateful if i could care<br />

Why would i hate my own, and forsake my home<br />

Why would i fuck around and get a jake my chrome<br />

I wouldn't have to stick you if we all could eat<br />

It wouldn't be no need for beef, dyin over streets<br />

We don't even own anyway, you could get bucked off any day<br />

We behind enemy lines, y'all still writin henessy rhymes<br />

While i'm tryin to get a good price for a nine<br />

Feel like my life on the line<br />

That's why a nigga be hype all the time<br />

Ready for the revolution at the drop of a dime<br />

<br />

[m1]<br />

I got a duty to have security for my niggas<br />

A duty to serve the beautiful black sisters<br />

A duty tom stand wit anybody that's wit us<br />

And fully criticize all bullshitters<br />

There should be awards presented, to niggas who fight back<br />

Like panther jackets, or sisters who like gats<br />

I'm a full blooded warrior, ready for change<br />

Recognize any soldier that's doin the same<br />

Because i love who i am, and that means everything to me<br />

My life aint worth a damn unless i'm dealin with reality<br />

When i look myself in the eyes it's just me<br />

And i aint gotta tell nobody no lies i feel free<br />

And i would rather deal with the truth than falsehood<br />

Than bein fake with my people and claimin it's all good<br />

You can't run away from yourself so that's useless<br />

If your word is bond then you don't have to make excuses<br />

<br />

Chorus<br />

<br />

[juju]<br />

Yo as i sit and contemplate about the fate of my kids<br />

If i die is the state gon snatch up my kids?<br />

City life, no choice but to live by the knife<br />

Put food on the table at whatever the price<br />

My beautiful wife, all the time cookin precise<br />

When there aint no meat, she bless me with the eggs and the rice<br />

Never think twice, i love you for the rest of my life<br />

That's why i taught you how to shoot when situations get trife<br />

Save the children from the evil that we smell in the air<br />

Used to bein happy, now the feelin is rare<br />

I'ma soldier in the struggle just tryin to prepare<br />

Cuz when the revolution comes it aint gon be fair<br />

<br />

[psycho les]<br />

Yo it's the beatnuts, dead prez, we connect like tetris<br />

And we comin at the world on some high connections<br />

So turn it up, so we can drop these gems quick<br />

If you on some bullshit, then nigga get the ?eggs split?<br />

There's enough cash, grass, and ass here for you and me<br />

You wanna be greedy, sayin fuck the community<br />

Watch out cuz life's gonna change very soon you see<br />

I really don't believe we could ever have unity<br />

This shit is serious we all tryin to have a milli stash<br />

But love life cuz that's all a nigga really has<br />

Love your fam, cuz that's all you really have<br />

And handle your biz and stop bein a silly ass<br />

Ayo it's gettin, gettin, it's gettin, gettin it's gettin kinda hectic<br />

Starch burns, so naturally thugs learn to stay vested<br />

You need to learn what psycho les said<br />

So treat others the same way if you wanna be respected<br />
