about

Too many of my brothers and sisters have lost their way in these streets. We will put all our energy into doing the wrong things, not realizing we can put that same energy into progression. It's time to wake up and think outside of the pine box.

lyrics

(Time to wake up and smell the "Bush" shit in the morning)

Whippin through the Uptown landscape/
My man makes paper on the corner-five years, he a goner/
He's become a karma-karma chamelion/
Why all the good ones thinking they need a gun?/
Where we from, the cops are the criminals/
And ain't a damn thing subliminal/
Punks got minerals, move 'em to any hood, they generals/
And pit bulls, word to the syllable/
No more hooked on phonics/
Got the finest hydroponic science projects/
I was moving weight before I was lifting 'em/
Short you on 'caine, can't afford to be sniffin it/
What's the difference how you die/
When you slated for extinction in 2005, they gon fry the ghetto/
The fall guy gon' be another nigger who be smiling on TV with a shiny medal/
When the bloodclaat decease can settle/
Mek dem release the duppies fi dem sleep in peace/
We sacrificing a chicken after we lick 'em dirty/
Life in the same position till she hit thirty/
Lil' purdy got two birdies to worry 'bout/
She don't want a dick in their mouth for sure B!/
Learn the curb, the sidewalk/
The turf jive talk/
How to hide a fork in a knife drawer/
And WAKEUP!
