You Can't Stop Us Now
From Willie Lynch to Willie Hutch, right on we superfly Made Gucci this shit, Louis too, suits and ties Player trophies, pray to Goldie Picture wax museums full of Black Panther triple OGs Aunt Jemima hoes, historic horse shit Girls from long time ago, stagecoach with the horse, kid Witch doctors, good old pickpockets sip moonshine So called coons, shines and darkies, I love y'all Pyramids to cotton fields to Wrigley Fields Forgotten men who didn't get killed, Christmas addicts The first blast and peace to the rich lady Purse snatcher shot in the back I know your hunger, kid, I know they hung your dad Burnt your mama crib, I know that hurt you bad Mystery shows, from gold to shackles and back to gold We act like we home, matter fact we are home Bad attitudes, octoroon skin tones Slave food turned to soul food, collards and neck bones Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag Bet she had a nigga with her to help her old ass As James Baldwin says You can only be destroyed by believing That you really are what the white world considers A n*gger No matter how hard you try You can't stop us now No matter how hard you try You can't stop us now Can't be stopped yo, on Dateline The other night they showed hate crimes Gave a Blood time ?cause he fought with his canine Bestiality, Humane Society go to China, see how they dine See what they eat, better yet ask PETA whoever Which animal makes suede? If not for suede would you have survived the Dark Ages? Cannibal ways of the anti-Caucasians Still you like your steak tartar, Pinot Noir David Starr on the chain of Sammy Davis He helped pave the way for Southern crankers And them Harlem shakers Now, we getting our papers And try to censor the words To stop our money coming But you can't escape us, haters No matter how hard you try You can't stop us now No matter how hard you try You can't stop us now You can't stop us now
