Come on!

Ya still never edit
Radically poetic
And like E-Double I'm mad
Hoover, he was a body remover
But it'll never come close
Fist in the air, in the land of hypocrisy
Movements come and movements go
When their heads are flown
Got bullets in their heads
Networks at work, keepin' people calm
When he spoke out on Vietnam
And then came the shot
Wit' poetry, my mind I flex
Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up
Cause blood still flows in the gutter
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Then stick and move like I was Cassius
Then bomb a left upon the fascists
Who pulled schemes on the dream
Ya better beware
20/20 visions and murals with metaphors
Ya know they murdered X
He turned the power to the have-nots

What was the price on his head?

I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard, I think I heard a shot
He may be a real contender for this position should he
Of non-violence and embrace black nationalism'
Pinpoint potential trouble-makers and neutralize them,

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
How long? Not long, cause what you reap is what you sow
