I was listening to the full American Gangster leak when suddenly:

“We ain’t thugs just for the sake of just being thugs
Nobody do that, where we grew at nigga, duh
The poverty line we not above so I come with mask and glove
Cause we ain’t feelin’ the love
We ain’t doing crime for the sake of doing crimes
We moving dimes cause we ain’t doing fine
One out of three of us is locked up doing time
You know what the type of shit can do to a nigga’s mind?
My mind on my money, money on my mind
If you owe me ten dollars you ain’t giving me nine
Y’all ain’t give me 40 acres and a mule
So I got my glock 40 now I’m cool
And if Al Sharpton is speaking for me
Somebody get him the word and tell him I don’t approve
Tell ‘em I’ll remove the curses
If you tell me our schools gonna be perfect
When Jena 6 don’t exist
Tell ‘em that’s when I’ll stop saying bitch

What you know about that? Hip-hop zillionaires do have a heart. Tell Mos Def to put a sock in it. Make a hit or some shit. Nut-hugging Kanye don’t count.
