The Revolution will not be televised... the revolution is here.....


[Hook]
And you know, yes you know
This is Rap for real, somethin you feel
x4
This is rap for my people.....


Started off as a basement artform, composed of turntables, pops n locks, and windmills on cardboard,
Tracksuits and fat laces, no freebases, we all knew the score, All before toting teks cash and faking hardcore,
Before corporate intervention, dickriding the departed, n shouting out companies that feed you and your artists,
The music business is the real black market, pushing materialism to children; executives should be the DAs target,
Now the cultures half way gone, thanks to mtv pouring into homes, suburban white kids believe they street grown,
So downtown they roam, thru projects and government housing they go, carrying they bb gun, swagger slow,
Heads hooded, pretending to push blow, cuz America loves gangsters and the ghetto is its shit show,
Some struggle and have no choice but to shovel snow, but 95% of hustlers are lazy and this we already kno,
Shells send funeral parlours to vend crates and tend hate, cuz everyone wants a piece of those year-end dividends,
Or a wipe of the plate, the 10 real ones left? Are prompted to skate, Q-Tip got 3 unreleased albums,
Y u think they never made it out the gate? KRS n G Rap been on the rear burner since waaaay back,
And without they fans dead prez couldn’t even afford an 8 track, Jay cakin, and half the industry hatin,
Women degraded and on that theres no debating, booty rockin every where, the only worry in a girls life,
Is the weave that was once her hair, and if she lackin a sufficient pair? Throw some D’s on that bitch…. and get the fuck back out there!

The perseverance of a rebel, still here to unsettle, society shaken not stirred, disturbed with words on every level,
Adults used to tell me not to meddle, I grew up and discovered that change will always inflame the devil,
In people, they coat corruption with mirrors and smoke, until conforming to bullshit becomes rote,
Society as a whole has issues taking a joke, sure there are rules but what happened to a little fucking sport?
Pre-set elections provide the illusion of choice, democracy failed, the moment integrity was bought with a rolls-royce,
Some say whats the use of a single voice, they’re just too pussy to be different, n ther ignorance keeps them moist,
The planet is dying, humanity along with it, 100 miles high my minds flying, but I refuse to acquit it,
Of immoral agendas that brew within it, I want to clear my conscience but I cant quite get in touch with it,
They say, Sparx, ur a fuckin hypocrite, u rap bout guns too, u squeeze clips and would fuck a bitch,
Even if u knew she’d sue…. Yea that’s true, but its all just a façade for you, a way into the big time,
Then this is what i’d do, id put C4 on the core n every door and double in every CEOs and secretarys drawer,
And send the fucking buildings to 600 ft. below the floor, cuz they way shits goin now? Hip Hop is fucking dead, and I don’t wanna deal with it no more….
