AmFirst ship ’em dope and Emlet ’em deal to brothers.
DGive ’em guns, step Cback, and watch ’em kill each other.

C2 shots in the dark now Huey’s dead.
AmI got love for my brothEmer, but we can never Dgo nowhere
unless we Cshare with each other.
GWe gotta start makin’ cDhanges.
Learn to seCe me as a brother ‘stead of 2 distant strangers.
AmAnd that’s how it’s supEmposed to be.

GAnd only time we Dchill is when we kill each other.
CIt takes skill to be real, time to heal each other.
AmAnd although it seems Emheaven sent,

the Cpenitentiary’s packed, and it’s filled with blacks.
AmBut some things will Emnever change.
Try to Dshow another way, but they sCtayin’ in the dope game.
Now Gtell me what’s a mDother to do?
Bein’ Creal don’t appeal to the brother in you.

We gotta make a change…
It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes.
Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
and let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.
