I wrote this on May 1, 2016. By this time 387 people had died by the hands of law enforcement. I was angry, all cried out and Facebook-protesting just isn't enough. I made the beat first and just let it play. After a while, it was like the whole piece just came right out of me. I closed my windows, closed my bedroom door and recorded this on my cell phone. After it was all over, I knew this was gonna start some shit.
Here piggy piggy piggy
unarmed pretty face nigga here, come shoot me
don’t worry, you’ll get off scott free
at the expense of my melanin and my broken family
the justice system is wrapped around your little dick
just pretend you’re apologetic, the jury looooves that shit
pay no mind to these crooked headlines
they seem to get it wrong from time to time
this nigga here was heading to college
this nigga here was coming from store
this nigga here was getting ready to marry his queen
this nigga here was shot at his door
this nigga here was heading to a new job
this nigga here screamed “it’s a toy gun”
this nigga here was just selling loosies
and this nigga here was so scared he started to run
what more do you want from us?
your women are already got our ass and lips
and you’ve just taken upon yourself
to kill off us kings with all our good dick
what are you gonna do when the sleeping sheep awaken
and we rise up to reclaim the ancestors built
you just got that pretty pistol in hand
with your motto stuck in your fucking mind: do what thou wilt
