There's breaking news tonight in the shocking case of an unarmed(I can't breathe)

African American man who died after being handcuffed 

And then pinned to the ground by (I can't breathe)

Minneapolis Police. After Cell phone video shows one of the officers put his knee on (I can't breathe)

George Floyd neck for at least seven minutes even after Floyd's body went limp (I can't breathe)

America I got a Question
Why's all the killing in these streets
Why nobody trust the police
Why if a young black man pulled over 
Gunned down in his whip 
I think it could have been me
Telling me you want peace
But you withdrawing your piece
Now I got my hands up 
Why you aiming at me
Telling me to comply I could end up deceased
It's a war outside
And we praying for relief
America I Got A Question

Why Why Killing 
In the Streets
Why nobody trust the police
Why why young young
Black Black over over
Down Down
Coulda Coulda Coulda been me
Telling want want peace
But you withdrawling yo 
Got my got my got my
Hands up 
Why you aiming at aiming at
Me to comply 
I Could end up decased
Its a Its a outside 
And we praying for relief
America I got a question

There's another dead body in the street
His momma on the news full of grief
There was No reports of violence
Resisting arrest, or aggression
That coulda been me
Why they always talking bout my record
No arraignments my record
Pulled me over cause I'm black 
My minds an automatic weapon
They assume I'm selling crack
Or that I pack a Mac 11
Load the clip with bad intentions
Pull the trigger with no questions
Bow
Black Lives Matter
Still screaming Black Lives Matter
Do they though 
We at war
In this war we've been framed
Momma's pain 
I'll explain
Cause it's scary to be carrying 
A body to be buried 
Off a weapon that he had 
When he was licensed to carry
I Got Questions 

America I gotta Question

Why's all the killing in these streets
Why nobody trust the police
Why if a young black mans pulled over 
And gunned down in his whip 
I think it could have been me
Telling me you want peace
But you withdrawing your piece
Now I got my hands up 
Why you aiming at me
Telling me to comply I could end up deceased
It's a war outside
And we praying for relief
America I Got A Question

Wait 
Hold up hold up hold up
How you trust the government 
When their the main culprit
Funding the police 
That will murder us with no conscience 
And black on black crime myth was spread to kill the culture
Cause the past full of lies
See it through my eyes
That's a homicide
You called suicide
Cases never tried
The only way we rise
If we unify
You can clip our wings 
We gon still be fly
You can never break 
What's hand made by God

America I got a Question
Why's all the killing in these streets
Why nobody trust the police
Why if a young black mans pulled over 
And gunned down in his whip 
I think it could have been me
Telling me you want peace
But you withdrawing your piece
Now I got my hands up 
Why you aiming at me
Telling me to comply I could end up deceased
It's a war outside
And we praying for relief
America I Got A Question

Why Why Killing 
In the Streets
Why nobody trust the police
Why why young young
Black Black over over
Down Down
Coulda Coulda Coulda been me
Telling want want peace
But you withdrawling yo 
Got my got my got my
Hands up 
Why you aiming at aiming at
Me to comply 
I Could end up decased
Its a Its a outside 
And we praying for relief
America I got a question

Why Why Killing

We asked 10 years ago
We was asking with the Panthers
We was asking with them
You know with the Civil Rights Movement
We was asking
You know
No those people that were asking
Their all dead or in jail
So now what do you think we're going to do
And we shouldn't be angry
And my raps that I'm rapping
To my community shouldn't be filled with Rage
