  • Will I die slain like my King by a terrorist?
    Will my woman be Coretta, take my name and cherish it?
    Or will she Jackie O., drop the Kennedy, remarry it?

    Killer Mike, “Untitled,” R.A.P. Music, 2012
  • I ain’t never gave a fuck, I never did and never will.
    Live my life on principle: keep it true, keep it real.
    Better said, I keep it TRILL and no matter who don’t like it,
    Homie, that just it how it is, naked truth
    Like that stripper that’s in front of me,
    And I keep a blunt, and a Bible, and a gun on me.

  • Ronald Reagan was an actor. Not at all a factor,
    Just an employee of the country’s real masters.
    Just like the Bushes, Clinton and Obama,
    Just another talkin’ head tellin’ lies on teleprompters.
    If you don’t believe the theory, then argue with this logic:
    Why did Reagan and Obama both go after Gaddafi?
    We invaded sovereign soil, goin’ after oil
    Takin’ countries as a hobby paid for by the oil lobby,
    Same as Iraq and Afghanistan.
    And Ahmadinejad sayin’ they comin’ for Iran…

  • This is jazz, this is funk, this is soul, this is gospel
    This is sanctified sick, this is player Pentecostal.
    This is church front pew, Amen, pulpit,
    What my people need and the opposite of bullshit.

  • We brag on havin’ bread, but none of us are bakers.
    We all talk havin’ greens, but none of us on acres.
    If none of us on acres, and none of us grow wheat,
    Then who will feed our people when our people need to eat?
    So it seems our people starve from lack of understandin’
    Cause all we seem to give them is some ballin’ and some dancin’,
    And some talkin’ about our car and imaginary mansions.
    We should be indicted for bullshit we inciting,
    Havin’ children deaf and pretendin’ it’s exciting.
    We are advertisements for agony and pain.
    We exploit the youth. We tell them to join a gang.
    We tell them dope stories, introduced them to the game.

  • Thanks to Reaganomics, prisons turned to profits,
    Cause free labor is the cornerstone of US economics.
    Slavery was abolished, unless you are in prison,
    You think I am bullshitting? Then read the 13th Amendment.
    Involuntary servitude and slavery it prohibits,
    That’s why they giving drug offenders time in double digits.
