[Voice of Keanu Reeves in "The Matrix".]
"I know you're out there... I can feel you now.
I know that you're afraid... you're afraid of us... you're afraid of change.
I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here, to tell you how it's going to begin.
I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you
don't want them to see... I'm going to show them a world... without you. A world without
rules and controls... without borders or boundaries. A world... where anything is possible.
Where we go from there... is a choice I leave to you."


[Jay Electronica]
Ladies and gentlemen,
you are now tuned into the sounds of Jay Electronica
Please remove all coins, chains, keys, and foreign objects from your pockets...
We're gonna have a good time tonight...

Everybody told me to be patient,
But who was sleepin' from couch to couch and basement to basement but Jay Man?
Satan trying to block my shine like Ray-Bans,
Haters never wanna see you bubble
They'd rather to see you struggle
That's life, my nigga
A lot of fakers in the place,
were invited to taste
and told me right to my face, "Yeah that's tight my nigga...
You reppin' that dirty south dog? Alright, my nigga!"
But they wouldn't lift a finger,
to light the incent or let the smoke linger
I ain't a hot boy but the flows jalapeno
I'm never yappin' bout how the calico'll end ya
Magnolia crack soldier creepin' on the come up
My grandmother won't leave the fuckin' projects, I gotta raise the slum up
These nerds at record labels played me dumb and dumber
So I showed the industry my ass crack like a plumber
Now asscap bangin' on my door like a drummer
The fall's 'bout to put a period on the summer
But back to the point:
They wanna see me fucked up, kicks scuffed up,
laying back with a joint
They said, "good things come to those who wait..."
Well I don't know about that,
and if you can't feel this rhyme then sorry, Jack,
you don't know about rap
And if you don't know struggle you don't know about black
And I don't give a fuck what Bill Cosby said
'cause the problem gon' exist when Bill Cosby's dead
And I don't think the revelation from the supreme beings
residing or hiding out in Bill Cosby's head
This is the thoughts of a soldier,
and if you don't like it play dead and roll over,
the game is so over,
the reign is so over...
