Aye, I know it ain't 1200 USD but uhh At least good music don't depreciate in value Aye, bring it back Kwafi Signed, sealed, delivered from your boy Keith Phelps, himself Y'all know what it is This the stimulus package After everything that happened More inflation more taxes Front-row seat to the truth And I’m throwing in the backstage passes Student loans and they canceled classes This the real love for the masses Copy paste put it in your status So they got a patent on the virus Talkin bout they working on a vaccine Make a killing from hysteria Without a single care for your well being Homie this been the Hunger Games Making us hunger for the chance at fame I be writing waves, thats in Chance’s name History repeats no ain't nothing changed In the hole 25 trillion And yet they giving out 2 And guess who all got to pay for that? Every single last one of you Even got unemployment for the contractors Our economy is in a compactor And the leadership is just paid actors Who be laughing bout it every day after Buy some gold while you still can And if you can, you better buy some land Invest your heart in what truly matters As opposed playing out they little plan No fiat money, bitcoin Precious metals, get coin Living in the tenderloin Man, woman, girl, boy Here it is no coy Can I get a witness? Naw, y’all ain’t hearin' me New name for truth is conspiracy Nickname for peace is just tyranny In plain sight it’s so vividly Yea, we done failed like kidneys At the mercy of every industry Gotta build the wealth for mini-me’s Reevaluating who’s the enemy No paper products, no plastic For a legacy so lasting With some quality that’s so lavish Cuz I spit the ill rap passage Here’s the point I'm talkin' bout vantage Tryna give you all the advantage For the heart, mind, and soul here’s a bandage And a timeless stimulus package

We in the age of information Few role models and viral inflammation Distracting the masses, all these Temptations Running away with me, it was just my imagination Burn through the lies a lyrical conflagration Of everything playing on these television stations Rare demo tape from a Midwest basement Mic check 2-1-2, here go my statement At the epicenter of the DMV The newest preconceived stunt aired on TMZ So the all the real things happening, we won’t see Court-side to game that we won't peep The way they move and Creep just like TLC They so C.L Smooth I Rock hard like Pete With these gems and truth Needed Negro News Cutting Free speech in the living room I don’t need no booth Ok, ladies and gentlemen Boys and girls Everybody on the web And the whole wide world From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea You need to know How and why we got here, yea You need to know No lies just the real, yea You need to know Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz You need to know Ok, ladies and gentlemen Boys and girls Everybody on the web And the whole wide world From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea You need to know How and why we got here, yea You need to know No lies just the real, yea You need to know Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz Now we got pop instead rap FOX instead of facts And now we C the SPAN of the cultural collapse Everything we CNN in the media is Headline News Premeditated and defeasible The hidden agenda Created by somebody still wearing suspenders The powers that be and all their wonderful splendor Pour the poison in your cup and sweeten it with a Splenda Let me spit an addendum Gotta Believe none of what you hear And half of what you see Especially when produced and packaged on TV They got us yelling stay woke, now we don’t sleep Make us Spend it all and stay broke, now we don’t eat How we on the same team, yet they making us compete? So the quest for unity remains forever incomplete Yea they post lies, lather rinse, then it all repeats I’m loading truth in the clip then driving by in these streets Ok, ladies and gentlemen Boys and girls Everybody on the web And the whole wide world From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea You need to know How and why we got here, yea You need to know No lies just the real, yea You need to know Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz You need to know Ok, ladies and gentlemen Boys and girls Everybody on the web And the whole wide world From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea You need to know How and why we got here, yea You need to know No lies just the real, yea You need to know Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz You need to know

You said that I could be anything Accomplish all my dreams Like you was on my team Can’t understand why you always be taxing me Make it so hard for me Why ain’t the law for me? After I pledge my allegiance to Stars and Stripes You see me as nothing more than a stereotype You see my people in the most negative light We just want a fair chance and a dog in the fight After the rallies and activist efforts Perceivable progress that looks like it’s better Throughout history, it’s been no mystery, it’s been so plain to see that you’ll never You'll never love me No, no, no, you'll never love me It’s like 400 years was a mere misunderstanding You don’t like em dark but you love to go tanning Ask your plastic surgeon to make you a copy Put braids in your hair change the way you be talking Wealthy plantation for us and our figures So no matter how high you still just a "NIGGA" News flash for all of y’all hope someone told ya Without us you do not have one ounce of culture Everyone wants to be but they don’t want to be The most hated and the most imitated Throughout history It’s been no mystery it’s been so plain to see that you’ll never You'll never love me No, no, no, you'll never love me You'll never love me You'll never love me Well, well, well Would you believe that they tried to tell me That they was concerned about my well-being? Mentality they tried to jail cell me On the subtle tip without the yelling Broadcasting on the tv screen Be a democrat and not the other thing Interest rates We can’t wait To spend cake And handshake With the ones that wish to harm us Like cattle used to farm us Dangling the carrot in front of our face That’s the way that they disarm us From being all that we could ever be That we could ever see That we could ever dream Got the light skins and the dark skins arguing, "Who got the better genes?" You can ball harder than LeBron but you don't really need to own a team Why you wanna own your masters when we paying you enough just to sing? The Most High been calling y’all That’s the definition of letting freedom ring Left a voicemail, told the same tale, just like you no they’ll never Love me

They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store Walmart, Whole Foods and Publix You might as well just take your pick of the grocery stores They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery Can’t sit down or tip the waiter Tryna to still find toilet paper at the grocery stores They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store Saw someone in a hazmat suit at the grocery store Trying to buy up all the food at the grocery store Nasty faces grimacing And all for social distancing at the grocery store They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store I’m so grateful I can’t wait for the grocery store Taking my wife on a date at the grocery store New recipes for the week Between the aisles playing hide and seek At the grocery stores They won’t let us go nowhere but the grocery store

Please won't you cut me Please won’t you cut me Someone please cut me I look like a wolf Please won't you cut me Please won’t you cut me Someone please cut me I look like a wolf I used to have a standing appointment with Joel every week Every week But now they’ve made it almost illegal to sit in barber seats Barber seats Cosmetically, so unkept, have you noticed? After a week or 2, I start to look homeless Please, won't you cut me? Please, won't you? Please, won’t you cut me? Please, won't you? Someone please cut me Because I look like a wolf Woah, oh, oh Please, won't you cut me? Please, won't you? Please, won’t you cut me? Please, won't you? Someone please cut me Because I look like a wolf Woah, oh, oh Don’t wanna shave my beard but it’s appeared to take over my face Take over my face (over my face) Hair all over the place Try my best not to cry Missing the sweet sound of clippers and blades Oh, how I miss the sound (clippers and blades) Is there a barber around? Over the last 60 days I've looked like Tom Hanks in Castaway Make no mistake I can’t wait for this to pass away Please, won't you cut me? Please, won't you? Please, won’t you cut me? Please, won't you? Someone please cut me Because I look like a wolf Woah, oh, oh Please, won't you cut me? Please, won't you? Please, won’t you cut me? Please, won't you? Someone please cut me Because I look like a wolf Woah, oh, oh Once upon a time in a land called barbershop Where there was an abundance of barbicide, blades and fades We men were able to leave the chair with no hair out of place But in the year 2020, that surely did fade away Because you see In all the land our cosmetic privileges were pulled And that is why we look like wolves

How do you find hope When it’s a rare commodity? How do you still give When you’re in need of charity? How do you still dream In a restless reality? While clouds are near me I can see it so clearly Silver lining Perfect timing Passing through not here to stay Can’t stop dreaming Still believing Just a moment’s time away How do we move on When life as we know it changes form? How do we accept truth When it defies our very norm? When curtains are closing Do we lose our love to perform? And all without warning After turbulent storming Can you see the Silver lining Perfect timing Passing through not here to stay Can’t stop dreaming Still believing Just a moment’s time away
