  • I was a dreamer, life was a gamble;
    Born in a casino, but God never give burdens you can’t handle.
    Music is my ammo…I’m ready for battle.

    K’naan, “Better,” Country, God, or the Girl, 2012
  • Mindless violence, well let me try to paint it.
    Here’s the 5 steps in hopes to explain it:

    1, It’s me and my Nation against the World
    2, Then me and my Clan against the Nation
    3, Then me and my Fam against the Clan
    4, Then me and my Brother, we no hesitation
    Go against the Fam until they cave in
    5, Now who’s left in this deadly equation?

    That’s right, it’s me against my Brother
    Then we point a Kalashnikov
    And kill one another.
