Oh oh

Oh oh


Oh oh

Oh oh

I had for us

Turned my dreams into dust


I watch a phone that I had for us

Turned my dreams into dust

I know Obama was Heaven-sent

But ever since Trump won it proved that I could be President


Yeah you can at what cost though

Don't that go against the teachings that Ye taught for

Yo Tip I hear your side and everybody talk though

But ain't goin' against the grain everything I fought for

Prolly so Ye but where you tryna go with this

It's some sh*t you just don't align with and don't go against

You just readin' the headlines you don't see the fine print

You on some choosin'-side sh*t I'm on some unified sh*t


It's bigger than your selfish agenda

If your election ain't gon' stop police from murderin' n**gas then sh*t


Bruh I never ever stopped fightin' for the people

Actually wearin' the hat'll show people that we equal

You gotta see the vantage point of the people

What makes you feel equal makes them feel evil

See that's the problem with this d**n nation

All Blacks gotta be Democrats man we ain't made it off the plantation

F**k who you choose as your political party

You representin' dudes just seem crude and cold-hearted

With blatant disregard for the people who put you in position

Don't you feel an obligation to them

I feel an obligation to show people new ideas

And if you wanna hear 'em there go two right here

Make America Great Again had a negative reception

I took it wore it rocked it gave it a new direction

Added empathy care and love and affection

And y'all simply questionin' my methods

What you willin' to lose for the point to be proved

This sh*t is stubborn selfish bullheaded even for you

You wore a dusty a** hat to represent the same views

As white supremacy man we expect better from you

All them times you sounded crazy we defended you homie

Not just to be let down when we depend on you homie

That's why it's important to know what direction you're goin' now

'Cause everything that you built can be destroyed and torn down


You think I ain't concerned about how I affect the past

I mean that hat stayed in my closet like 'bout a year and a half

Then one day I was like f**k it I'ma do me

I was in the sunken place and then I found the new me

Not worried about some image that I gotta keep up

Lot of people agree with me but they too scared to speak up

The greater good of the people is first

Have you considered all the damage and the people you hurt

You had a bad idea and you're makin' it worse

This sh*t's just as bad as Catholic preachers rapin' in church

Y'all been leadin' with hate see I just approach it different

Like a gang truce the first Blood to shake the Crip's hand

I know everybody emotional


Is it better if I rap about crack Huh 'cause it's cultural


Or how about I'ma shoot you or f**k your b**ch

Or how about all this Gucci 'cause I'm f**kin' rich

You'll deal with God for the lack of respect


Startin' to make it seem like Donnie cut you a check

Now you toyin' with hot lava better be careful with that

What's it mean to gain the world if you ain't standin' for sh*t

Okay I gotta say it Ye you sound high as a b**ch

Yeah genocide and slavery we should just try and forget

And all that free thought sh*t find a better defense

But if Ye just stuck in his way he can leave it at that

F**k it

Alright T.I.P. we could be rappin' about this all day man

Why don't we just cut the beat off and let the people talk
