BIG K.R.I.T. - 2000 Beyond

"Right now we'd like to bring on a young man who

believes in doing things his own way

And based on the way he kinda get next to all of the

folks who've seen him work

His way has gotta be pretty hip, so let's lay some


"They send our people to fight for this so-called


But when they get back down to the South et cetera, et


Shit is worse than ever

There is something very sick about that

Power to the people! "

2000 and beyond

2000 and beyond

2000 and beyond

Tricks and hoes, bitches and stripper poles

Shake it for dollar signs, let me see from behind

The ghetto's a fairy tale, pimps and jezebels

Dealers with chrome rims with product for you to sell

Chemistry in the kitchen, alleys with rubbers in it

Tires go round and round, windows heavy tinted

Kush is scented inside

Pull me over, now they talking bout a canine ("Code 6")

Black man face down, damn

Charge it to the game

Bums warm they weary souls over open flames

Junkie can't find God, watch him find his vein

Preacher walk right by like he ain't seen a thang

Pass the collection plate

Niggas thought shit was gon' change on election day

Healthcare, H1N1 nasal spray

Got me scared to hit the block

Wear my flag as a mask, tote a Glock

"To tell you the truth, I'm not sure I even want any of

this dirty money"

"Well, I'll tell you what Reverend

We'll find something to do with your share"

"No, no-no-no-no, I'll take the money

I'm sure the Lord will find another way for me to do my


Poor folk scrape dollars, spend the last

Of they income tax on Impalas with the SS

Church give awards, who the best dressed?

Pastor drive a Bentley, got me thinking I was less


Cause I let a middle man

He was capping what I'm asking, I don't understand

How you fit that many rings on a helping hand?

Tired of deception

But I pay his kid's tuition cause I'm tryna get to


Ain't it crazy? Scared to have a baby

How can I protect it from the same streets that made


Concrete gladiator, bloodshed overflow

Real life, some places Russell Crowe would never go

Pimp tight flossing, look at what it cost me

Peace of mind, no sleep, late night tossing and turning

Waiting on the end, pray to God, forgive me for my sins

"You know how I survive?

Cause I don't think about the world, that shit don't

exist to me

I don't give a fuck about anything or anyone in it

Because the minute I do, I'm a dead man out here

And you remember that shit"

As a child I was cold with a chip on my shoulders

Grandma told me be careful cause there's sharks in the


They will kill you, let the Good Lord steer you

Don't worry bout the government, cause baby they don't

feel you

Martin Luther King had a dream, we was right there

I wonder what he saw when he up and had nightmares

Quite scared, all the work he had done

Couldn't stop what we've become

"Ain't nothing I say gon' get me out of this

But things were getting bad for me, and

I had to do what I had to do to s-, to survive"
