  • I am black ambition
    I am always whisperin'
    They keep tellin' me I will not
    But my will won't listen
    Gravity on a black man
    With everything on his back and
    His family and passion
    If the doors ain't crackin'

    You gotta let go (let go)
    If you wanna fly, take the leap
    You gotta risk it all (risk it all)
    Or there'll be lots of things you'll never see
    You gotta let, let go
    'Cause you never know
    What's in store
    Mr. Entrepreneur

    In this position with no choice
    A system imprison young black boys
    Distract with white noise
    The brainwashed become hype boys
    Third eye dilate
    You ain't supposed to make it off Section 8
    Robbin' Peter just to pay Paul
    Prepare to risk everything

    You need to let go (let go)
    If you wanna fly, take the leap
    You gotta risk it all (risk it all)
    Or there'll be lots of things you'll never see
    Remember, black is space
    And it's the color of your face
    There will be no sunny days
    If Black went away

    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man

    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man

    Don't go chasin' waterfalls
    Please stick to the drip that you're used to
    They don't make 'em like they used to

    Uh, lies told to you
    Through YouTubes and Hulus
    Shows with no hues that look like you do
    Black Twitter, what's that?
    When Jack gets paid, do you?
    For every one Gucci, support two FUBU's
    Sippin' Crip-a-Cola
    Consumer and a owner
    'Til we all vertically integrated from the floor up
    D'Ussé pour up
    Sip Ace 'til I throw up
    Like gang signs, 'cept I bang mines for both ya
    Serial entrepreneur, we on our own
    Stop sittin' around waitin' for folks to throw you a bone
    If you can't buy the building, at least stock the shelf (word)
    Then keep on stacking 'til you stocking for yourself, uh
    See everything you place after black
    Is too small a term to completely describe the act
    Black nation, Black builder, Black entrepreneur
    You in the presence of Black excellence and I'm on the board, Lord

    Black man, Black man, Black man (ayy, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord)
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man (God, God, God, ayy, God, ayy, God)
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man (Lord, yuh, God)
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man

    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
    Black man, Black man, Black man
