Songtekst

Uhh
Now it's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we're thinking of

Now they say we playa hatin' 'cause we hate the black on black
And the fact we can't stand when we act like that
Self-hate killin' us more than the Po-Po or crack
I tell my peoples with the khats it ain't about all that
We arrived on slave ships, tortured chained and whipped
Four hundred years of bein' slaves in the land of the brave
Have we forgotten? Our ancestors forced to pick cotton
Women raped and tortured, murdered if they caught ya
Niggaz swung from trees like a breeze do summer leaves
Swayin back and forth, failed attempts to make it North
Millions of people died just so that we can survive
So this knowledge I provide cause these facts can't be denied
Nowadays it's new ways, sixties it was the smack
Eighties it was the crack, nineties it be the khat
Time to recognize how uncivilized we got
Get wise and unify and not fall victim to the plot

Cause it's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we're thinking of
It's love, vs. hate
It's time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we thinking of

Uh, when will we make our Exodus? When will the guns
Bust the other way instead of at the brother next to us?
That's all that they expect from us, police stand by
Don't believe the lie that they're the ones protectin' us
Projects, to see how poverty's affectin' us
Robberies, we lust objects of high quality
Or so we think we slowly sink into the quicksand
With no support, like a bike that doesn't have a kickstand
We stay in court, smoke Newport's, and fail to support
Our seeds, with no thoughts for they needs
We fought for the cheese and all it got us was a grave
Or a bid as a slave, we live in the land of the brave
Where the home isn't free, grown niggaz be
In a zone, tryin to act out the TV
We cracked out and greedy with a lack of respect
It's time to come correct, it's time to come correct

Cause it's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's my people that I'm thinking of
It's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we thinking of

Sally, been gettin beat for years
Husband come home high off of weed and beers
He frustrated cause his job is low rate
Low money, plus his wife brother act kinda funny
My nosey neighbor always makin it her labor
To cause controversy, I seen them out in Jersey
The teacher say my son show aggression
I tell her it's in our lesson, for him to know himself
To me the greatest wealth is the best of health
When the music stops, I'll play the role like my pops
And his pops and so on I got a legacy to go on
I'll watch out for my babies and I'll kill for em
And if they wanna receive the knowledge
Then I'll build for em

Now if it's love vs. hate, then what's your fate?
What we showin' with the money we blown?
Shit is still chaos, ain't a damn thing sewn
Cause it's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we thinking of
It's love, vs. hate
Time for my people to eliminate
That hate, let's love
Because it's our people that we thinking of
