AN ACT
ARTICLE 22
22-26-101. Legislative declaration.
Statute text
The general assembly of Artists, recognizing our obligation to support positive rap music with a message for the masses, hereby swear to use TRUTH to provide educational opportunities to the young and old, black and white, conservative and liberal. This new act will challenge and enable all people to expand their minds to include diverse individual truths, to express them outwardly and continue a dialogue of understanding and harmony. We declare that the purpose of TRUTH is to use music as a medium of knowledge; an outlet of rhythm to unite humankind and a tool to hammer out hate and discord among people. The general assembly of Artists also recognizes that the need for TRUTH is now and their talents must be recognized and heard in the boardrooms, the classrooms and the warrooms. We thereby declare that the purpose of this article is to foster the development of TRUTH as a chart topping mechanism for change in our culture. It is only through TRUTH that the antiquated thinking that chains us down, can graduate. It is only through TRUTH that we can experience the power of rap, the beauty of eloquence and the power of young minds creating a forum. We hereby authorize the music industry to purchase educational and profitable services from TRUTH.

This is project truth/and it’s under construction/we’re eyeing you/studying your blood and examining/all your moves/my talent has matured/but you’re a molecule/credulous fools/then we’ll kick the stool-from underneath the game’s shoes/it falls over then we kill it/follow nothing but our rules/now what will they conclude? That we’re some magicians with fishy missions and tricks up in our sleeves? Keep wishing but i’ve had it/ i’m bout to pull something out my hat and it’s not a rabbit, it’s the sound going in as fire coming out as static/you’re bound to be amazed ‘cause it’s nothing of this planet/i wrap around their heads and scan ‘em and now i got ‘em/you’re mine/i’ve got no sense of time/’cause this ain’t gonna finish/it never started/rising or falling action don’t exist, it’s an infinite climax in the mix that will cease to quit/so come and sit/
Please/listen until your ears rot
We team/up on the group that you’ve got
It seems/like we only reached the weak minds
But believe/it’s on for all you tough guys

Chorus

Verse three -1-

Hold up/it’s the illest/the realest/that came in speaking the truth/so who are you?/nobody your body crew/miniscule individuals/fools that dropped school/to drugs and copped tools/you thugs are weak news/in interviews-told ‘em/holding me down ain’t an option/cuz me,seven,sinis, we get it popping/yeah we locking the sector/checking your bosses/beckoning the ending you see what i’m doing causes/stand up for applause/this new cause/has arrived at last/and this time,it won’t pass/grasp/thoughts of the plots unleashed/to the north,south,west to east/the country will see/and flock to it/so you gotta/rock to it/adrenaline rushing your body moving like fluid/it’s fluent to this new music/i just know your influenced/feel it up inside no reason to subside/so do it—

Relieve-we’ve come to take over at any cost
Ease-take the game and we rise
Believe it’s on for all you tough guys so
