My momma was raised in the era when
Clean water was only served to the fairer skin
Doing clothes you would have thought I had help
But they wasn't satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself
You see it's broke ***** racism
That's that "Don't touch anything in the store"
And this rich ***** racism
That's that "Come in, please buy more
What you want, a Bentley? Fur coat? A diamond chain?
All you blacks want all the same things"
Used to only be *****s now everybody playing
Spending everything on Alexander Wang
New Slaves

You see there's leaders and there's followers
But I'd rather be a **** than a swallower

You see there's leaders and there's followers
But I'd rather be a **** than a swallower

I throw these Maybach keys
I wear my heart on the sleeve
I know that we the new slaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I know that we the new slaves
I see the blood on the leaves
They throwing hate at me
Want me to stay at ease
**** you and your corporation
Y'all *****s can't control me
I know that we the new slaves
I know that we the new slaves
I'm 'bout to wild the **** out
I'm going Bobby Boucher
I know that ***** ain't free
You *****s *****, ain't me
Y'all throwing contracts at me
You know that *****s can't read
Throw 'em some Maybach keys
**** it, c'est la vie
I know that we the new slaves
Y'all *****s can't **** with me
Y'all *****s can't **** with Ye
Y'all *****s can't **** with Ye
I'll move my family out the country
So you can't see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash their recorders
See they'll confuse us with some bullshit
Like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock *****s up
They tryna make new slaves
See that's that privately owned prisons
Get your piece today
They prolly all in the Hamptons
Braggin' 'bout what they made
**** you and your Hampton house
I'll **** your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
Y'all 'bout to turn **** up
I'm 'bout to tear **** down
I'm 'bout to air **** out
Now what the **** they gon' say now?

I won't end this high, not this time again
So long, so long, so long
You cannot survive
And I'm not dying
And I can't lose
I can't lose
No, I can't lose
Cause I can't leave it to you
So let's get too high, get too high again
(Too high again
Too high)
