Skegee Lyrics

(See the storm)

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, uh

(Over there)

Yeah-yeah, uh

(Here it comes)

F***, check, dawg

 

Take a chance, have faith, my lad

You got all of the same tools all the greats have had

Two eyes, two ears, one mouth, two hands

You can watch, listen more than you speak, take advantage

You peep all the karma that come with makin' the cream

The crop, full of demons providin' you what you need

They got, what's your thing? Alcohol or the lean?

Put the coke inside the weed, them n***as seasonin' the greens

Rap game turned from the slingers to the fiends

But I'm in between, I mean

I ain't pickin' teams, but I had a dream like King

F***in' on this pretty little bi-, queen, I mean

Point me to the cheese, n***as talkin' cream

Park the car, I'm 'bout to part the seas

And move a mountain for money, nothing keepin' me

From gettin' to you, gettin' to me, Marvin G, Tammi T

But get your eyes cleaned for something you have never not, not seen

 

Okay, well

Prior to coming to Tuskegee (Uh)

From high school I went to college here, then Tuskegee Institute

While in college I had a professor that I really impressed with

He got me interested into politics

He was the first black (Uh) councilman in the city of Tuskegee (Check)

 

Take a chance, have faith, my lad

You got all of the same tools all the greats have had

Maybe lesser than that

Way back when I was puttin' on my football hat

This institution came recruitin' little Route for the stats

They sat me in a room with my dad

And it was cool but when they left I was glad

And my pops was too, he said that's good-ass parenting

Reminding me 'bout that place that did them n***a experiments

On them black people, sharecroppers, down in Alabama, damn

It's not that far from Atlanta, it was the 1930s

They did them black folks dirty because a tan

A man was not a man, n***a, your granny wasn't grand

A scam into the plan to go recruit a group of stupid n***as

And shoot them up with syphilis instead of shoot to kill 'em

That's stupid different

The lengths that y'all trip to catch a n***a slippin' and for what?

'Cause we look different?

 

Everyone with knowledge of that study (Let us keep rockin' this s***)

Would be terrified

But that study represents and demonstrated

The inhumanity of man to mankind (Yeah, yeah, yeah, ah, f***)

I often say that

Look

 

Take a chance, have faith, you in last place

Take a stand but don't take the stand for your man's sake

Just a dad tryna put some ham on a damn plate

I'll be damned, I don't feed the fam', n***a (Damn straight)

Elbow rubs and handshakes

From hands that tied ropes on necks in red states

Another dead black-ass man, I need a damn break

They never gave us a chance, I had to take it

I need all the payments, for every day we suffered all the hatred

I want my granny to shoot the hands with Nancy Reagan

I want emancipation

Standin' naked at the auction with my dick out, hanging for reparations

No matter how much I say it, they ain't hearin' my voice

'Cause as long as them crackers payin', you ain't much of a choice

And you can shoot a million Js, you'll prolly never be Jordan

N***a ran for a million yards, you still forty acres short

 

(See the storm

Over there

Here it comes)
