  • It is absolutely silly and unproductive to have a funeral for the word nigga
    When the actions continue we need to have a movement to resurrect brothers and sisters
    Not a funeral for niggas
    'Cause niggas don't die

    Uh yeah yo I'm creepy and crawling
    In your sink or your toilet
    I'll be drinking from your spit
    Anything cause I'm more less an insect with 4 legs
    People come and I fake dead
    Correction I got 8 legs
    Climbin' on top your plate bed
    Wherever I smell food
    It could even jail food
    Stale food that's molded
    A roach is what I am fool
    The ghetto is my land fool
    I'm a never be able to fly like a bumblebee
    Try not to be underneath
    Your sneaker
    Pitiful creature
    I'm not afraid of your pesticide
    Or ray
    'Cause in heavens my creator
    I love it when the lights off
    Eating from same knives forks
    From any mans dinner
    See my antennas
    You can't win
    You can't stand the crunchy sound I make if you squash me
    Learn to live with me
    How much your roast motel costing
    You and the city
    But yo we everywhere
    Check your house I bet we there, look

    Niggas are like roaches, they are never going away
    Learn from them what we should not become
    'Cause niggas don't die Writer/s: ABIODUN OYEWOLE, ERIC HUDSON, NASIR JONES
