Lyrics

Involuntary Servitude - Part 2

Written By: Imiuswi Aborigine

??Involuntary Servitude - Part 2

Involuntary Servitude established the rise
of this Nation built by captives on plantations

Involuntary Servitude! Reparations are due!

Involuntary Servitude established the rise
of this nation built by captives on plantations

Involuntary Servitude! Reparation are due!

Back burn in heat
Callouses scratches on hands and feet
Crime to be free
Tricked Lied to Manipulated Deceived
Tarred and feathered shot down
or hangin from trees
Carolinas
Mississippi god damn!
13 colonies and the Caribbean
one with the sun
at war with submission
Christians Insisting We accept these conditions
Lynchin
Lynchin...
Lynchin!!!
Chicken feet. Neck Bones Chitlins'
Rank Meat
to feed my people with need of greenery
Devilish savages spread disease
Hypocrisy
in life on earth, you belong to me
They said
Only in heaven after death will you be free
Catch 21, 22, 33
Life span
if Nigga stood up to be a man
My sistas violated turned tan
subdued by tied hands
as they did their do. Dem mans
from ancient architectural designing
Civilized
To cotton pickin in lines Diggin mines
Choppin cane and wood Planting corn
Denied
Basic necessities and Human Rights
Melinated peoples
Consistently Continually suffer injustices
wherever we reside
Worldwide
Caint stop the flow of truth or hide
Involuntary Servitude established the rise
of this nation built by captives on plantations
How long should I keep waiting
For our reparations
Compensation without delay, cause...
Strenuous Labor - slaving with no pay to save
For centuries, slavin with no pay to save
Physically erecting the foundation and structure
of All that is seen here today
Blood Sweat Tears Labor Science

Involuntary Servitude established the rise
of this nation built built by captives on plantations

Involuntary Servitude! Reparations are due!

Liberation

Written By: Imiuswi Aborigine

Liberation

Fighting for the bread. Fighting for peace of mind
in the head
life of fighting for the dread
Blood splatters killed the youth laughter
done felt the rapture over again
can't trust trusting a friend
Ghetto life is wicked if you let it rule your spirit
too many hopes been seared
sublime threats obvious fears
Selfish! All mine scared to share
uptight too tense counting petty cares
where's the justice?
one wanting life to be fair
black people born with kinks all over my hair
need not ask why melanin inside
Freedom All Mine And all that applies

Us oppressed come for liberation
Many obstacles we be facing'
Contemplate
No run No need for the chasin'
African descent Blessed with divine creation

Times are changing a new
use my voice to break through barriers
created for my people with intent of evil
anyone can see it
Once high they fought to make Nigritians die
cast at the feet of them pillars in the sky
One with all! None...
feet close to the center of the earth
the surface is the dirt
High shall rule right divine or fall
they can't kill us all... not all!!!
Educated Organized
with the glory and the vice
as is, power of night joined with the Light
motivated with the conscious thought
to free my mind
and many others of my kind
antidote for poisoning in the line

Us oppressed come for liberation
Many obstacles we be facing'
Contemplate
No run No need for the chasin'
African descent Blessed with divine creation

pity poor city girl
thank Lord she pretty
a shield from the world
Truth Sore Gritty
from one came the many
Aboriginal Infinite
Caint horde it sell buy it or rent it
beyond the finish
transcend the flesh
it gets better
with my words statements and letters
I aint no quitter
in the center
I'm the center
for beginners
Done be Done
while they stuck on finna

Us oppressed come for liberation
Many obstacles we be facing'
Contemplate
No run No need for the chasin'
African descent Blessed with divine creation

Mash

MASH
???
Pushin' on my purpose
Mashin' on this mission
I know the masses wanna listen
to heartbeat and tuff rhymes I be spittin'
Gotta get it to 'em
Ran through nuff studios
like dog pound through hoes
to balze the mic
yeah I write but naturally
grew into producing
Gettin' plump, bout to bust with wit juice
Beady Beats the newest crew
and it's serious, sincere
My music will always be here
when them biggas gone
My stress is long
Will real strong to bring the do and make it happen
Producing rappin' slappin' police in a verbal release
Served my time in the beast
Terms of custody and obligations
Free Speech!
Gonna Take it Make it Mine and Redefine
whoppin' the swine with pearl twines
One for they mind
Jammed up in the past
still forward not rewind
I'm kind with a mean streak
Seen the Gemini self defeat
Emotions more air than concrete
prone to laugh out loud, fight and weep
Not weak, a little bitter, super sweet
I M I U S W I
I'm you and you me
Representing Beady Beats
Live and Direct
from the W-E-S-T

Progress Motivate Mash
Movement no hesitate
Crash Course Bearing Heavy Weight

Piercing fields of resistance
Ear drums prodded to hear it
So near yet so far stars behind bars
wearing glittery things
so the brightest of all things will have some
Extra bling
The Sun melts all that novelty
Culture Consumer Comedy
Imposed on the Soul
Paid mucho dues added with taxes and tolls
Ain't gonna roll over and play dead
In the Red by Default
Not all run-away slaves got caught

Progress Motivate Mash
Movement no hesitate
Crash Course Bearing Heavy Weight

Mash Through, Mash Through
Motivation action forward Do
Done did it, do it some more
The power's strong and it's sure
Purely antagonized by man's moral crimes
We been baited by lures, waiting for cures
Open up Eyes, Get done or be the doer
Searching for the pure
Real questions fake
Can't be so fragile that I crack or break
Motivate in crowded space

Progress Motivate Mash
Movement no hesitate
Crash Course Bearing Heavy Weight
