"Gimme a gat I'm bout to smoke this motherfucker!" (2X)

Pass me.. pass me the gat, I gotta fight back

I ain't rollin over on my motherfuckin back (4X)

[Sadat X]

I need seven brothers ready to roll, I mean some real shit

Brothers ready to bust, bust again and again

Snatch the chains off the door my man, this is a stick-up

I ain't bring no funds, just came to snatch the guns

Check it, brothers spread throughout the whole damn store

Don't leave nothin, don't leave a witness

This black man is armed, another man's alarmed

This is the next Vietnam, set it off in the North

My moms is down with it, pops is committed

Something's got to give, I'm like a powder keg

Ready to stick a bank, drivin a high-powered tank

Newsflash -- Brand Nubian, takin fifty hostages

Take em in the basement, feed the punks sausages

(Yo if I don't get em) ?? Twinkies from Hostess

Shoot the faggot in the back for actin like that

From New York, in the East, I'm the black man police

I called the cops for a beef that I had, but they didn't do

a fuckin thing, tellin me to tone down

As if they was a father gettin red in the face

and they threatened me with mace.. so check it out (HEY!)

So now I'm the wise guy but they ain't tryin to bend

That's why I'm here to pretend..

Aiyyo pass the fuckin gat!

"Gimme a gat I'm bout to smoke this motherfucker!"

Pass me.. pass me the gat, I gotta fight back

I ain't rollin over on my motherfuckin back (4X)

[Lord Jamar]

Pass me the gat, and just like that, I squeeze

like a man possessed from the Old West

See I rest in Rule -- keep a tool close

You don't want be the learner that my burner makes toast

Cause today's mathematics is Uzi Does It

I got the automatic stashed in the attic

And it's an Emphatic Now Cipher

if you think you take the life of me without a fight

Huh, I clean my gun with a riprod

Here comes the God who don't eat pig lard

Lord J-A-motherfuckin-M-A-are

Never passive, the crew grows massive

We get wreck with the tech, blow your mind with nine

Plus we got the shotty for your body

Rodney King ain't this God-ly king

Before I take a whippin, I'll dump a fuckin clip in

the police, who give us no peace, to be deceased

I'll have a feast, as I commence to slay the beast

So my advice to black men: stay strapped

Aiyyo aiyyo yo, pass that..

Pass me.. pass me the gat, I gotta stay strapped

I ain't rollin over on my motherfuckin back (8X)

Pass the gat!

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
