  1. The kind of rap you need to dig in to find – way to go, music industry.

    I'll borrow a comment from Public Enemy video: This is reality, and society doesn't live there any more.

  2. THIS!!!! THIS is hip hop.

    Hip hop.. the OG shit wasn't all about bitches and purple drank.. it was a movement. It was the expression of the real life of the ghettos. It was real and it had a message. It truly was the music of the people and this is just that. Thank you Brother Ali for being so positive and for being a good human being.

  3. Brother Ali is the best white rapper hands down. Fk white, he is top 10 Period. White Kids worship Eminem but Eminem ain't got shit on Ali. Content wise Eminem is like a child to a grown man compared to Ali.

  4. [Hook:]
    Every day every day
    Got to work every day
    Every day every day
    Got to work every day

    [Verse 1:]
    My God there's got to be more to life than this
    There's got to be a bigger reason that I exist
    Work to eat to earn my keep
    To ensure somewhere to sleep and spend the weekend buying shit

    Don't need economists to know I need pot to piss
    Follow politics man I ain't got time to think
    What I got to set aside for my retirement
    Cop a double shift pay somebody to watch the kids

    Sick of all this but can't take an off day
    Doctor's office I can't swing the co pay
    Trapped in a network luck just to get work
    They celebrate every week nobody gets hurt

    Greed could never leave well enough alone
    They keep on squeezing till we bleed from every bone
    And we'll strive hard and stress about the rent
    Probably still die poor and in debt without a cent but

    [Hook]

    I guess I'll carry my ass down to the county and see what they're talking about. But
    You know they treat you like you shot somebody just because you need a little help

    [Verse 2:]
    You're telling my you ain't never been down on your luck
    Never tried to make them ends meet but just got stuck
    Never slaved at a gig like a bum with a cup
    Added all your pennies up and you still ain't had enough

    And the jobs full up they ain't hiring
    I'm barely surviving not enough to get by with
    Hunger is a constant problem stomach steady growling
    People getting shot in my environment

    Study go to college is what them people hollering
    Too many road blocks in the way it's not an option
    To say that it's impossible I would be lying
    But you ain't got a chance if you're not up in that top ten

    A couple got a scholarship but I am not them
    Ain't got the skills to pay the bills so my pockets are thin
    So until I cop a gig and my hardship ends
    Fixing to line my self up at your welfare office again

    And I expect to be accepted as the man that I am
    Respectfully and appreciatively Ma'am
    God damn you must be out of your mind

    [Hook]

    Do you see this Tea Party stuff, man? Them people look broke their damn self. Are
    They serious?

    [Verse 3:]
    People stressing here's the question
    How they get people drinking tea in a recession
    It's deception how absurd is this
    How are so many poor people conservative

    A pro artist I put it in the good music
    A con artist job's to make you look stupid
    Lookie here I'll teach you how to look trough it
    First thing you need to know every con got a hook to it

    They seduce you with a little wealth
    Say you could have some of these crumbs for yourself
    If the government doesn't make us help anyone else
    You stuck a red sign on your foreclosed house

    Make you think you're taking back your nation
    Then they turn it over to a major corporation
    Those companies took the jobs overseas
    And you handed them the wallet out your pocket for free

    You're staring in the sky with dollar signs for eyes
    The blind right wing of a bird that can't fly
    Just a peacock with a poked out gut
    Who's too fat to fly so his ass just strut but

    [Hook]

    They're so criminal minded we've been blinded
    Looking for an honest job and can't find it
    They got a job bill we got a light bill
    If we don't pay ours our life is quite real

    [Hook]

  5. "How are so many poor people conservative? A pro artist I put it in the good music, a con artist job's to make you look stupid. Lookie here I'll teach you how to look through it. First thing you need to know is every con got a hook to it. They seduce you with a little bit of wealth, say 'you can have some of these crumbs for yourself' the government doesn't make us help anyone else, you stuck the red sign in front of your foreclosed house. Make you think your 'taking back yer nation', then they turn it over to a major corporation. Those companies took the jobs overseas and you handed them the wallet out your pocket for free. You're staring at the sky with dollar signs for eyes, the blind right wing of a bird that can't fly."

    The single greatest verse ever written.
