New National Anthem (新国歌) - T.I./Skylar Grey (斯盖拉·格蕾)

I know radio prolly ain't gonna play this


But chopper going off in the hood man

Like Afghanistan or the Gaza

Strip somewhere man.


Yeah, we hear it so much

We probably numb to it by now.


After all, it's the American way right?

Home of the brave and free


(It's America)

Free just to murder me

(land of the handgun)

Land of the beautiful

(home of the shotgun)

Cursed by the hate we throw

(You're dead if you ain't got one)

Is this the new national anthem?

It was like this before I got here baby,

I ain't do it

Is this the new national anthem?

(I ain't start it, I'm just a part of it)


Turn it


You say this the home

Of the brave I guess

I say this the home

Of the K's and the vets

All alone with the J's smoking yay

Cause he stressed

On chrome with a Tek

Taught to spray for respect

I learned from the best

Used to stay in the jects

Bought work from the vets

Burning rubber in the vets

This as good as it gets

Used to play with the rats

Then I got older and learned

Stay away from the rats

God blessed this ni**a,

To hustle up and make eight figures

Turned from a goon

To a great young ni**a

No complaining

Just doing what it take young ni**a

I was raised in a decade

Of hate young ni**a

Always dodging polices

Because they hate young niggas

And we hate them too,

38 in him shoe

All the changes the system

Will take him through

He ain't a killer

But he will if you make him do it

Homicide he'll ride,

They'll put him on trial

Let him have a life

Sentence then do it with a smile

And he only 19,

He ain't even had a child

As a child, told his mama

He'll be gone for a while

And she cried,

Still they just put him inside

Now she all on her own

Because her other son died

Listen to the politician

As he lied and he lied

He a snake in a suit,

Trying to hide in disguise

Home of the brave and free

(well damn officer what did I do?)

Free just to murder me

Naw hold up man don't shoot,

I live over there

Land of the beautiful

(a man what you doin)

Cursed by the hate we throw

(you trippin dawg)

Is this the new national anthem


Is this the new national anthem


For the stars and the stripes

Prison bars and the pipe

Young ni**a rolling w**d

In a cigar he can light

Bang red either blue selling hard

And the white

Live by the gun,

Never run from a fight

Trayvon in a hoodie,

Walking through the neighborhood he

Didn't do sh*t to buddy,

He didn't have to die did he?

I guess it's because his dad

Was a judge in the city

They didn't want him in the pen

With the thugs that could get him

A jury of his peers

Said all was forgiven

But touch one of mine,

Right or wrong,

I'ma kill them

Fill them with the lead

Like they put in Martin Luther King's head

Like they killed Malcolm X,

Edgar Hoover did that

You can catch me in the hood

Where they shooting niggas at

They don't know if Neighborhood

Or the Hoovers did that

Whether Piru or VL's


Or GDs wit me we

Down to uprise

From the OG's to peewees

Home of the brave and free

(Don't get it f**ked up)

Free just to murder me

If you ain't found something

You're willing to die for,

You ain't fit to live

Land of the beautiful

To get something you've never had,

You must be willing to do something

You've never done

Cursed by the hate we throw

(I'ma die by mine)

Is this the new national anthem


Is this the new national anthem


What are you doing

Let me ask you something.

If the kids are the future,

Tell me why you

Can get more for being C.O.,

Than you can for being a teacher.


Tell me why it means

More to the government

To pay the people

Who got to watch over the prisoners,

More than the people

Who got to keep the children

From becoming prisoners.


That make sense?

Tell me why 9 ounces

Of crack will get you more time

Than a rape right now.


Tell me why them crazy white boys

Can tote a gun

But I can't right now.


Yea I had felonies,

I done did dirt in the streets,

But I ain't ever gave it

To anybody that didn't deserve it.

You know what I mean?


I ain't ever ran in no public place

With no pistol shooting

No innocent people.

I ain't never ran in no school,

Killing no kids.


Man this is the result of you refusing

To deal with the issues at hand.


We are a product of the environment

You placed us in


We ain't do it

We just lived through it

Home of the brave and free

(message to my people)


Free just to murder me

Stop waiting on folk to help you,

Help yourself, it starts with you

Land of the beautiful

Get yourself out, reach back,

Get somebody else out

Cursed by the hate we throw

Is this the new national anthem


Is this the new national anthem


Hell is you doin'?
