Open Letter

Album: Magna Carta Holy Grail (2013)
  • Ladies and gentlemen
    Goddammit
    Let this shit knock

    I done turned Havana to Atlanta
    Guayabera shirts and bandanas
    Every time you think they got me I switch the plan up
    Bulletproof this, radio scanners
    Ballin' 'til they ban us
    You gettin' too much bread, they try to jam you
    Boy from the hood but got White House clearance
    Sorry y'all, I don't agree with y'all appearance
    Politicians never did shit for me
    Except lie to me, distort history
    Wanna give me jail time and a fine
    Fine, let me commit a real crime
    I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef
    Out of spite, I just might flood these streets
    Hear the freedom in my speech
    Got an onion from Universal, read it and weep
    Would've brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free
    Except I made millions off it, you fuckin' dweeb
    I still own the building, I'm still keeping my seat
    Y'all buy that bullshit, you'd better keep y'all receipt
    Obama said "chill, you gonna get me impeached"
    But you don't need this shit anyway
    Chill with me on the beach

    Y'all gon' learn today

    Y'all almost want to start a revolution
    You know whenever I'm threatened, I start shooting, bark
    Catch a body, head to Houston
    I'm in Cuba, I love Cubans
    This communist talk is so confusing
    When it's from China, the very mic that I'm using
    Idiot wind, the Bob Dylan of rap music
    You're an idiot, baby, you should become a student
    Oh, you gonna learn today
    Where the fuck have you been
    The world's under new management
    The new role model, fuck this Zoolander shit

    Y'all gon' learn today Writer/s: SHAWN CARTER, JEROME HARMON, KASSEEM DEAN, TIMOTHY MOSLEY, CHARLES BRADLEY, THOMAS R. BRENNECK, DAVID GUY, LEON MICHELS, HOMER STEINWEISS
