"You Can't Stop Us Now" as written by Barrett Strong, Norman J. Whitfield, Salaam Remi and Nasir Jones....
From Willie Lynch to Willie Hutch, right on we superfly
Made Gucci this shit, Louis too, suits and ties
Player trophies, pray to Goldie
Picture wax museums full of Black Panther triple OGs

Aunt Jemima hoes, historic horse shit
Girls from long time ago, stagecoach with the horse, kid
Witch doctors, good old pickpockets sip moonshine
So called coons, shines and darkies, I love y'all

Pyramids to cotton fields to Wrigley Fields
Forgotten men who didn't get killed, Christmas addicts
The first blast and peace to the rich lady
Purse snatcher shot in the back

I know your hunger, kid, I know they hung your dad
Burnt your mama crib, I know that hurt you bad
Mystery shows, from gold to shackles and back to gold
We act like we home, matter fact we are home

Bad attitudes, octoroon skin tones
Slave food turned to soul food, collards and neck bones
Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag
Bet she had a nigga with her to help her old ass

As James Baldwin says
You can only be destroyed by believing
That you really are what the white world considers
A nigger

No matter how hard you try
You can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop us now

Can't be stopped yo, on Dateline
The other night they showed hate crimes
Gave a Blood time ?cause he fought with his canine
Bestiality, Humane Society go to China, see how they dine

See what they eat, better yet ask PETA whoever
Which animal makes suede?
If not for suede would you have survived the Dark Ages?
Cannibal ways of the anti-Caucasians

Still you like your steak tartar, Pinot Noir
David Starr on the chain of Sammy Davis
He helped pave the way for Southern crankers
And them Harlem shakers

Now, we getting our papers
And try to censor the words
To stop our money coming
But you can't escape us, haters

No matter how hard you try
You can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop us now

You can't stop us now
