Tell me what it meansTo be black, someone tell me what it meansWho I gotta vote for, who am I to beWhat car I gotta drive, where I gotta buy my jeans, black manIf you ain't really hood, you can't be a black manIs it cause I'm proper when I speak, black manShould I be a chain and gold teeth black manOr a Martin Luther King had a dream black man, a dream black manYou really gotta practice what you preach, black manHow you gonna talk about peace, black manWhen I got death threats on my screenI am not the enemy, black manSo who draws the first strawEverybody hurt, who caused the first scar'Cause as soon as you see niggas get to fightingYou be the first mother fucker wanna yell out World StarCan't nobody else touch a niggaBut it's cool for a brother just to bust a niggaGuns sold in every hood, he'll slay a dozen niggasGon' kill yourself, while you're at it, take a couple with youAnd that don't justify the cop shit, I'm just on some black mob shitThe best way to protest, hit 'em where it hurts, their pocketsIt's time to boycott shitWe need less rappers and more doctrinesWe need less ballers and more prophetsWe need more unity, less gossipBut who am I to speak, I never went to collegeI hate to be the bearer of bad newsBut all of this double standard thinking is tabooIf black hate is a myth, the term new black wouldn't even existI pray for tomorrow, I pray for the sorrowI pray for the truth and I pray for ChicagoI pray for Detroit and I pray for OaklandI pray for Port Au Prince and I pray for New OrleansSomebody let me know, how can I be a better African AmericanLike I ain't grow up being black in AmericaLike I ain't grow up around crack, AIDS and heroinDamn They don't really know, black manThey don't really know, ugh, they don't reallyThey don't really know, black man, black man, black man They don't really know, ugh, they don't reallyThey don't really know, black man, black man, black man They don't really know, ugh, they don't reallyThey don't really know, black man, black man, black man They don't really know, ugh, they don't really know, ugh Sim simmer sim simmer, ugh
