What makes great art — 1791

So don’t matter how much I say I like to preach with the Panthers

Or tell Georgia State “Marcus Garvey got all the answers”

Or try to celebrate February like it’s my B-Day

Or eat watermelon, chicken and Kool-Aid on weekdays

Or jump high enough to get Michael Jordan endorsements

Or watch BET cause urban support is important

So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?

When gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me?


“I know everybody emotional

Is it better if I rap about crack? Huh? ’Cause it’s cultural?

Or how about I’ma shoot you? Or fuck your bitch?

Or how about all this Gucci, ’cause I’m fuckin’ rich?”
