While emcees were burning ism I earned degrees in journalism Learning the system and about how freedom of speech is worth killing for But watch what you say in all those interviews! You're in limbo? WELL WE'RE IN LIMBO TOO! Contact the dead to get advice from Anne Landers Transmit personal problems like head lice in bandanas The big man on campus has delusions of grandure Doing a thesis on ebonics, unconsciously using poor grammar Your mannerisms are suitable to cancer victims How much opposition does it take for your stance or position To dance to this rhythm? (you're jignorant, baby!) Dance to this rhythm. (Go ahead, baby!) Ah, forget it. It's actually accepted for rappers to have no ethics Their albums would benefit if they put in half the effort I attended candle light vigils for Matthew Sheppard While you put out another "f*ck you, faggot" record That Ain't Right I blame my hate mail on typographical errors Correct the mispellings and then send out thank you notes for the love letters Accept rejection when I get a return to sender Reject acceptance when the girl's got an agenda I've entered this Brave New World of true cowards Talkin' 'bout, "No one goes to shows no more. They're too crowded." So they stay home and burn shit Then they say, "I downloaded your life off the net. Totally worth it." It's 2003. Time to stop acting like assholes It ain't about backpackers or cash flow Fashionable afros, salon style dreds or frat clothes And it ain't about these fuckin' loud mouths shoutin, "BATTLE!" African medalions didn't sell platinum albums That's part of the reason why you think hiphop died It was here before you were. It'll be here in the future Life's not a bitch, she's just sick of being personified That Ain't Right This household is filled with the half-deads They've got a mouthfull of pills because they're crack heads They shout that I'm ill, but they're doubtful of skill With the type of stabbing that turns my back red I don't blast lead, I write until my pen explodes All over fashion dreds and your Echo clothes I don't listen when they say, "Shit ain't ever gonna change," and they say I ain't got no soooooouuuuuul..
