  • Okay I was gone for a minute but I'm back now
    Sit the fuck back down
    Seem like everybody nowadays Hollywood
    Oh it's like that now?
    I'ma show you mothafuckas how to act now
    I'ma show 'em how to act
    I'ma show you, show you, show you, show you
    I'ma show 'em how to act

    Okay now picture little Bobby just a youngin' runnin' 'round
    With his mans, hammer in his hands, feelin' like the man
    Run, mothafucka, run
    'Fore the popo get the gun, put it to your brain like goddamn!
    Everybody know you ain't about it
    Everything you talk about I know I can live without it
    Red light, stop, green light, go!
    Everything ain't what it seem like
    Mothafucka I know!
    Hold up, what you mean, where you been?
    Bitch I been in
    This is merely the beginning again
    What you been living in?
    A box, under the bridge, like Anthony Kiedis?
    Looking for something to complete us
    And maybe lead us, fuck an elitist
    Hell of a long way from equal is how they treat us
    Body of a builder with the mind of a fetus
    Turn on the television and see the vision they feed us
    And I wish I could erase that, face facts

    Everybody people, everybody bleed, everybody need something
    Everybody love, everybody know, how it go
    Everybody people, everybody bleed, everybody need something
    Everybody love, everybody know

    I been knockin' doors down like a Jehovah witness
    God as my witness, I'm with this
    But on the real I think I need another witness!
    If it was 1717, black daddy, white momma wouldn't change a thing
    Light skin mothafucka certified as a house nigga
    Well I'll be God damned, go figure
    In my blood is the slave and the master
    It's like the devil playin' spades with the pastor
    But he was born with the white privilege!
    Man what the fuck is that?
    White people told me as a child, as a little boy, playin' with his toys
    I should be ashamed to be black
    And some black people look ashamed when I rap
    Like my great granddaddy didn't take a whip to the back
    Not accepted by the black or the white
    I don't give a fuck, praise God, I could see the light
    Everybody talkin' 'bout race this, race that
    Wish I could erase that, face facts

    Everybody people, everybody bleed, everybody need something
    Everybody love, everybody know, how it go
    Everybody people, everybody bleed, everybody need something
    Everybody love, everybody know

    Okay I was gone for a minute but I'm back now
    Sit the fuck back down
    Seem like everybody nowadays Hollywood
    Oh it's like that now?
    I'ma show you mothafuckas how to act now
    I'ma show 'em how to act
    I'ma show you, show you, show you, show you
    I'ma show 'em how to act Writer/s: Robert Bryson Hall
