  • Vic Mensa – Go Tell Em (The Birth Of A Nation The Inspired By Album) letras

    [Sample]
    Go tell em, go tell em
    Go tell em, go tell em
    Go tell em, go tell em

    [Verse 1]
    Go tell em, I’m gon’ tell what they don’t tell ’em
    We been under water since they threw us in the boat
    Sellin cotton pickin’ blues
    Rock and roll, real role builders
    Serving white America before we was dope dealing
    Brick laid the birth of a nation, it’s the Roc
    White house, black man, plantation, it’s Barack
    But we still can’t cross the street
    Without the cops trynna Zimmerman us while the whole neighborhood watch
    They chained us to the auction block but now we changin’ the locks
    ‘Cause even Bill O’Reilly daughter out here drinkin’ Ciroc
    Now that’s what I call the 21st Century Fox
    Where Megyn Kelly try to tell me Santa’s white
    It’s in town
    Murder us right?
    I just remember rap stars the new Bach
    I pull strings like the orchestra, shut down your corporate
    Nat Turner
    Run up in the doors to your Nordstrom with a hundred niggas ready
    And a hundred thousand more for ya
    [Hook]
    I see the future Martin Luther dreamt when he was a man
    I feel the blood my momma fought for
    See the scars on her hand
    Oh tell me there ain’t no looking back now
    Oh lord, as far as I ran
    So take these chains or give me death
    Either way we coming again

    [Sample]
    Go tell em, go tell em
    Go tell em, go tell em
    Go tell em, go tell em

    [Verse 2]
    Stripped from the family
    Ripped from reality
    Belly of the beast to the grips of the tragedy
    Couldn’t touch my soul so they whipped my anatomy
    I re-wrote the script when they thought they had mastered me
    1-2-3
    Now I’m counting up the casualties
    Mounting up the calvary
    Riding with a master piece
    Shotgun shells show you god when they blast for me
    Running like a wolf when they send the dogs after me
    Fighting for my freedom, yes I had the audacity
    Hangin’ from the trees, black blood on the leaves
    Jumping overboard, black bodies in the sea
    I die on my feet ‘fore I live on my knees
    So you know I’m not begging if I say “Nigga please”

    [Hook]

  • Nas – War (feat. Raye) (The Birth Of A Nation The Inspired By Album) letras

    [Intro: Raye]
    Oh yeah-yeah
    Oh-na-na-na, uhm

    [Raye]
    Concrete bricks, bullet proof vests
    I’m proud of these walls that I built to defend
    And protect this bold heart
    This bold heart
    But the way you marched into my home
    Not few, big army
    With the weapon on your arm
    Yes, you struck straight with your cold heart
    Your cold heart
    [Verse 1: Nas]
    I’m like Nat, I’m like Nat
    I’m a man of God but where is Christ at?
    And even though my name is Nas I am like Nat
    Is this me declaring war? White flags
    I now know why I was even born
    To strike back
    A full moon up in the sky, that’s a sign that
    It’s time to get my liberation, the perfect configuration
    It’s the birth of a nation, midwife black
    Mother father, caucasian
    My blood Indian, native
    So now I’m contemplating being like Nat
    ‘Bout to show you what I’m made of
    I’m what racists are afraid of
    No mule and the 40 acres
    And despite that
    Watch out for the traitors
    When they say make America great again, do they mean make us all slaves again?
    Don’t be sidetracked

    [Hook: Raye]
    Is this you declaring war?
    No, we will never wave the white flag, the white flag
    So you think I’m gonna run now?
    No, the time has come to fight back, to fight back
    This is me declaring war
    This is me declaring war, war
    This is me declaring war, war

    [Verse 2: Nas]
    Don’t want to be a victim no more
    Depicted as a criminal, especially when you’re poor
    Why doesn’t the government order capital punishment
    To officers
    Who racial profile and put slugs in us
    Makes me think they want us extinct
    On the brink of insanity
    We screaming for justice, they sending tanks, the man in me
    Demand we protect the family, anarchy
    Ku-Klux-Klan and him demanding he damage me
    So my fantasy is every single one of us
    Come against the evil divide of people, it’s common sense
    The fury, I hope the whole world hear me
    No justice, so I became a revolutionary
    No matter if you’re red, white, black
    If you want freedom then we’re all like Nat

    [Hook: Raye]
    Is this you declaring war?
    No, we will never wave the white flag, the white flag
    So you think I’m gonna run now?
    No, the time has come to fight back, to fight back
    This is me declaring war
    This is me declaring war, war
    This is me declaring war, war

    [Outro]
    Dear America, it’s time for a better America
    There’s a little Nat Turner in every one of us
    No matter if you’re red, white, black
    If you want freedom then we’re all like Nat
    War, war (war), war, war
    Declare war
    It’s time
    Let the spirit of Nat Turner live forever
