The Whole World's Lookin

Ro Soul Jah comin’ at ya like flavor flave

hittin you mind with a super sonic shock wave

destroyin the paradigm

that’s keepin you culturally oppressed

and has your whole life in a backwards mess

bringin you the truth is my duty in this world

sharin my experience

like Steinbeck in his novel “The Pearl”

So pay close attention as I start to speak

Cause I’m unique like an antique

Found on a mountain peak

in the middle of Mozambique

and I be droppin’ bombs every day of the week

I’m the brotha with incredible flow

Willing to go toe-to-toe

with any racist Jim Crow Joe Blow

He be wishin he would a laid low

But now he’s dead in an alley like a John Doe

So don’t fuck around with the fuck around

Cause I’ll leave you six-feet underground

Cause my verse is worse than a curse

My enemies end up on their backs in a hearse


The Whole World’s Lookin

So don’t make me pop you

Put down the money and guns

And we’ll let you through


And people please don’t make the mistake

Of thinkin’ I’m a brotha that’s full of hate

I’m just tryin to stay awake

From the mind numbing state

Of our current corporate reality

Contributing to the mass poverty

I’m a modern day Che Guevara

Sent by my people to raise "la barra"

To make wannabe revolutionaries contemplate

Are you ready to battle the fascist state

Are you really awake

Are you gonna live through the earthquake

And to all the status quo brothers

Competing with one another

I’m gonna make you know me

and you can either like me or blow me

cause I don’t give a shit what your opinion is


The Whole World’s Lookin

So don’t make me pop you

Put down the money and guns

And we’ll let you through


Like the saying goes people talk the talk

But true revolutionaries walk the walk

and I be composing rhymes

that keep you in shock

with beats like I be Johann Sebastian bach

that tell the story of how I organize

to help my brotha’s and sister’s realize

that we need to stop supporting

the corporate economy

we need to drill holes in the capitalist ideology

I don’t give a shit if you G Unit or G-U-not

And your dream is to sip champagne

on your Uncle Tom yacht

Or to make your millions

with your 3 point jump shot

In the back your mind you need to remember

That in all of us exist a divine ember

that glows brighter each time we expand our mind

to keep us from being confined


The Whole World’s Lookin

So don’t make me pop you

Put down the money and guns

And we’ll let you through
