    Sum of the Times – DJ East 137

    Verse One

    Big man had to bounce
    Galvanized a legacy, superman strong

    Michael Che’ said its over
    In that regard, I’m hoping SNL is wrong

    The past tells us voice can move choice
    Popular choice foxes get to count

    But even that won’t hardly stifle
    Operations have-nots are willing to mount

    Across the land music spoke
    Still shouting this one is worth pursuing

    Standing ovation to the school response
    Said ya’ll didn’t, ya’ll know exactly what ya’ll were doing

    Time can’t stop so everything counts
    Everything is data, momma raised no fool

    The only setback is waiting too long
    And providing opportunities for changing the rules

    Verse Two

    Hidden figures are a problem statistically
    Quantifiably turns crap to gold

    But like anything looking for trouble
    Like the pigeon drop or three cards, it’s going to get old

    It’s worth its weight playing it cool
    So at least there’s half a chance to level the field

    Femas got a brand new bag
    Redefining institutions of weapons and shields

    Maybe that’s not what’s going down
    And its just imaginations on THC

    While black budgets hide in plain sight
    But thanks to social media there’s plenty to see

    What you cant see are digital eyes
    Peeping everything about you that will not stop

    Its like taking the torch from Ms. Liberty
    When officer Alexis comes out the box

    Verse Three

    Making change means breaking a sweat
    Namely simple change that leads to progress

    Can’t be fake like breaking a date
    Or when actors in role cry out to congress

    Of the people, by the people
    An idea for which to stand tall

    Don’t always do what it was meant to do
    Of being good for one and then good for all

    How quickly things change in one week
    Making the road to tolerance just that longer

    But like rain one thing’s for sure
    When the load gets heavier, people get stronger

    Can’t urge it enough to make change
    Now is good time to practice what you preach

    Intolerance won’t mind what you think
    So imagine how it’s looking at the freedom of speech


    We’ve seen it before
    Runaway fear, too quick on the draw

    That’s when sense is out of order
    And life goes on but not like before

    Just like tax one things for sure
    History is in the making, sit up in class

    This lesson might burn a little
    But like smoke in the air, this too will pass
