I never really wanted the role of Hip-Hop artist that speaks when something tragic happens in our community, but I guess it is what it is. I got so many calls, tweets, and texts from folks asking me to say something so here it is. It’s raw and angry because that’s how I feel about more Black death unjustly at the hands of the police. For Michael Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford, and Ezell Ford, I hope your lives are not in vain, and God brings your families peace. For my community, this won’t stop until we stop it, and the first step is unity. I called this song 212 degrees because that’s the boiling point. The lid is about to blow off this whole masquerade.

Black bodies being fed to the system

Black American dead or in prison

Love for the murderer never the victim

Dead kids cant beg your forgiveness

We are at war

What you telling me to be peaceful for

When they break the peace by firing the piece now the peace gets tore

I don’t give a fuck about Quik Trip’s store

Calling all Gods its frauds in the pulpit

Miss me with that get along bullshit

Scared cause you master got a bullwhip

Imma get a hollow point that’s a good tip

We are not for the oakie doke

Mj’s doctor in a overcoat

See Imma give em shots they overdose

Street preaching till the block got the holy ghost

Cut scene

Got my enemy in the center of the beam

Spin him till he lean

What do you expect given what we’ve seen

I refuse to be next on that television screen

Amin, I say what I mean

I am not cosigned by Jimmy Iovine

I will not go blind from the from the things I’ve seen

3rd eye and its on high beam

Will these cops go to jail for

Eric Garner, John Crawford, Ezell Ford

I am Michael Brown resurrected to strike you down

See in Ferguson they murdered him call the cops and the purge begins

Bring tanks to heard em in & tear gas that burns the skin

40 cal 50 cal 60 cal guns

Lights Camera Action now Revered Al comes

The rioting and looting and they asking how come

All these dead black children yall mother fuckers sound dumb

We’ve been shot to death choked out burned up smoked up

And they wonder why niggas feel safer in the dope house

Peaceful protesting man I seen it it was no doubt

Then cops started firing and every broke out

A sister got shot in the head she went to Howard

Where’s Obama, Where’s Holder? The Feds? Who got the power?

Man I swear I aint wanna go in I waiting hours

But these others rappers ain’t saying shit most of em cowards

This no guns and all heart waking inside a Walmart

Grabbing every toy riffle and point em at them mall cops

Like Fuck yall you’re lucky this the only thing that touched off

I’m praying for the day that whole system get shut off

For that look in Eric Garner’s eyes when he couldn’t breathe

For the slugs in Ezell Ford’s back that caused him to bleed

For Renisha McBride on that porch about to leave

I hope they beat Ted Wafer like his name was Patsey

May God forgive me for these words that I had to write

May my spirit be preserved in the afterlife

Forgive me for my sins an let my good deeds matter twice

If nobody is swinging back then God damn I have to fight
