Freedom of speech, motherfucker…

I got no strings to hold be down
To make me fret or make me frown
I had strings, but now I'm free
There are no strings on me

Step into the club smoothly with a L in my hand
Bitches know that I'm a freak like the elephant man
Intelligent plans, fuck a record deal,
I want development land, with my benevolent clan
And that's the reason that I only trust my fam
40,000 records sold, 400 grand
Fuck a middle man, I won't pay anyone else
I'll bootleg it and sell it to the streets myself
I'd rather be that than signed and stuck on a shelf
And because of this executives try to diss me
Racism frozen in time like Walt Disney
And now they say they wanna get me signed to the majors
If I switch up my politics and change my behavior
Try to tell me what to rhyme about over the beat
Bitch niggas that never spent a day in the street
But I repeat that nobody can hold my reigns
I put the truth on tracks nigga, simple and plain

I got no strings, so I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
They've got strings but you can see
There are no strings on me

I guess to America I'm a disaster
A slave that was destined to own his masters
Independent in every single sense of the word
I say what I want, you fuckin little sensitive herb
This is America, I thought we had freedom of speech
But now you want try to control the way that I speak
And O'Reilly you think you a patriot?
You ain't nothing but a motherfuckin racist bitch
Fulla hatred, pressin a button trying to eject me
But I don't got no motherfuckin deal with Pepsi
No corporate sponsor telling me what to do
Asking me to tone it down during the interview
Tryin to minimize the issue, but I'm keeping it large
I love the place I live, but I hate the people in charge
Speakin is hard when you got strings attached
So I'm a say it for you cuz I don't got none of that
And if you didn't understand what I spit at your brain
Hey yo son, let this little nigga explain,

I got no strings so I have fun
I’m not tied up to anyone
They’ve got strings, but you can see
There are no strings on me

Come on son, ya’ll niggas know the way that I do
Immortal Technique dot com live for you
And I know sometimes it be making you nervous
The way I smash puppet rappers that belong in a circus
You motherfuckers just can't compare
Looking for a fan base that's no longer there
I know that you're scared, and you're hidin up in the cut
But this is freedom of speech nigga, tell em whats up

Word nigga fuck John Ashcroft! Nigga fuck Fox News!
Fuck those snake-ass bitches tryin to manipulate your opinion, tellin you what to think
Word the fuck up nigga, like we invaded niggas cuz we want to free them
You racist motherfucker, you don't give a shit about those people
You can suck my dick!

    General Commenthow has nobody commented on this song yet? Tech rips apart all the rappers who have conformed to what the media wants them to become. Immortal Technique is one of the VERY FEW rappers who can say that he has remained 100% true to himself and no one else

    General CommentI love this song! He is 100% right about corporate sponsers in not just music but everything and how everybody has a desire to protect certain interests.

    Money is the root of all evil!

    Luckily, this guy is underground and has put his beliefs above his own wallet.

    I don't even like rap but I enjoy somebody who speaks with passion... This guy is great!

    This is what every American with left winged ideals should say when they hear some conservative idiot say, "if you don't love America then get the fuck out."
