My other partner lost his son too, right before the 18th birthday
We out here bullshitin’, for what? [Intro: Marsha Ambrosius]
And we’ll introduce you to the starting lineup
We’re gonna introduce now the North Clayton Eagles
Coached by James Gwynn
His starters, number 21, Tauheed Epps
Yeah
[Chorus: Marsha Ambrosius & 2 Chainz]
Prayer for our sins, I…
Prayer for our souls, the…
Tears that we’re cryin’
Let ’em all be forgiven
Let it all be forgiven (When your dream, when your dream, dream, dream)
Just let it all be forgiven
[Verse 1: 2 Chainz]
When your dreams turn to nightmares
Transactions turn to Nike Airs
Went to Greenbriar Mall and bought five pairs
I stayed in the Creek, junkies used to preach
In the dope game, tryna reach my peak and go undefeated
I pleaded with the judge, this my first offense
High school b-ball, I’m tryna get a scholarship
No ACC, SEC, ClayCo APD
On a bumpy road like an ATV, EBT
Used to give me peace
I smile on the outside, inside discreet
As far as the past, wish I could press delete
Let my dogs off the leash
Rather buy it than lease or get murdered in the streets, fine line
[Chorus: Marsha Ambrosius, 2 Chainz, and JAY-Z]
Who can learn
Pray for the children (I pray)
I pray for our healing (I pray)
I know you feel it (I know you feel it)
Just let it all be forgiven (Lord forgive him, yeah)
Just let it all be forgiven (Lord forgive him, yeah)
Your sins, let ’em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him)
Dead lies, that is how we livin’ (Lord forgive him, that is how we livin’, yeah)
Just let it all be forgiven
[Verse 2: 2 Chainz]
Got a phone call from Lil’ Fate
Somebody shot his son, he didn’t make it
My head achin’, hands started shakin’
Foul beyond flagrant
He said, “Bro, what I’m supposed to do?”
I paused, remorseful
We been partners since public school
Kids ain’t supposed to die before us
As a parent, it’s apparent, ain’t no parents
Seeing stops once we leave the carriage
Cold of the streets react with the heat to create balance
One of the biggest revenge is prayer
Me, Shondrae, and ‘Cris was there
Guess Flesh won’t spend Christmas there
But in spirit, know you hearin’ it loud and clear
Whole family miss you as we stare off in the atmosphere
No fear
[Chorus: Marsha Ambrosius & JAY-Z]
Prayer for our sins, I…
Prayer for our souls, the…
Tears that you’re cryin’
Just let ’em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him)
Let ’em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him)
Just let ’em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him)
Your sins let ’em all be forgiven (Lord forgive him)
[Outro: 2 Chainz, Marsha Ambrosius, & Francis Farewell Starlite]
Hey, I don’t know need to hear this
Dead lies, that is how we livin’
But if you’re doin’ somethin’ to make…
Just let ’em all be forgiven
If you’re doin’ somethin’ to make your parents have to bury you
You may want to slow down
Everything got a consequence, whether good or bad
Rest in Peace Chalyne
Bigg, I love you, bruh
You know what I’m sayin’? Pray for my soul
You don’t get another life
This ain’t no practice life
Pray for my sins
These tears that I’m crying, let them all be forgiven
Let them all be forgiven
That’s it, that’s it
[Outro]
In all his majesty and might, his brilliance and his beauty
His black and his blue
“Boy,” still slips from their lips when they address him
Still linger in the velvet of his dreams, the scene unseen
Black boy fightin’ for manhood in a world that still sees through Jim Crow lens
Oh, them love him in his place
Separate, away, torn, disconnected, passive, submissive, and shufflin’
Oh, now just turn that shufflin’ into dancin’
‘Cause you know them love black boys dancin’
And singin’ and ballin’
You know them love black boys’ strength
But don’t love black boys
Let me see your hands
*Gunshot*

[Verse 1: Common]
Southern leaves, southern trees we hung from
Barren souls, heroic songs unsung
Forgive them Father they know this knot is undone
Tied with the rope that my grandmother died
Pride of the pilgrims affect lives of millions
Since slave days separating, fathers from children
Institution ain’t just a building
But a method, of having black and brown bodies fill them
We ain’t seen as human beings with feelings
Will the U.S. ever be us? Lord willing!
For now we know, the new Jim Crow
They stop, search and arrest our souls
Police and policies patrol philosophies of control
A cruel hand taking hold
We let go to free them so we can free us
America’s moment to come to Jesus

[Chorus: Bilal]
Freedom (Freedom)
Freedom come (Freedom come)
Hold on (Hold on)
Won’t be long (Won’t be long)
Freedom (Freedom)
Freedom come (Freedom come)
Hold on (Hold on)
Won’t be long (Won’t be long)

[Verse 2: Common]
The caged birds sings for freedom to bring
Black bodies being lost in the American dream
Blood of black being, a pastoral scene
Slavery’s still alive, check Amendment 13
Not whips and chains, all subliminal
Instead of ‘nigga’ they use the word ‘criminal’
Sweet land of liberty, incarcerated country
Shot me with your ray-gun
And now you want to trump me
Prison is a business, America’s the company
Investing in injustice, fear and long suffering
We staring in the face of hate again
The same hate they say will make America great again
No consolation prize for the dehumanized
For America to rise it’s a matter of Black Lives
And we gonna free them, so we can free us
America’s moment to come to Jesus

[Chorus: Bilal]
Freedom (Freedom)

[Hook]
All for money, all for power, all for purpose
Find your hour whats the outcome of brother Malcom
I think I don’ lost mine
Lost my patience I can’t take it, why so fake
Watch Satan lead us night into tentation
Pray yourself to the most high
Do you want a revolution? Do you want a revolution?
Do you want a revolution? Do you wanna…

[Verse 1]
Wait to live your life, let me know
Ain’t no telling where your going
My uncle stayed to die back againt the ropes
My dady left the crib back in 94′
Momma pulled me to the side
Boy you know this hoe’s
Break the cicle baby let your wings grow
Don’t wanna end up 40 on the corner store
Lotto tickets, politicking selling dope
Wonder where we all are go…

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
And I wonder where black man lives in the world
Talking about comment I’m a comment disregarded through malice
Screaming silence for a seat upon the table overlooking over valence
Maybe I was thinking black guy mans and pearls
Back to the originated kings queens generated
Commet middle ring well demonstraded, penetraded never be disintegrated
Broght us to a man where freedom would ring
Maybe on the other side, all I ear is bullets singing lollyby
This is for my niggas who won’t come alive
Sick of all my mommas crys
Promises of morning never would bring
The hollow mean no .48
Just find me in a kingdom full of love
Separated from the ignorant of us
Tell me who are we to trust
When there’s goverment oficials oversing our demise
Triger happy police give a fuck if we oblige
I don’t own a number tell how many died
Over miscomunication of a color, I’m alive
Scared of walking alone and see a diamond sticker
With a stick yelling nigga I’m a fucker run and catch a homicide
Systematic being proven other side of genocide
Murder, murder, murder, how do we survive

[Hook]

You will not be able to stay at home brother
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
You will not be able to lose your cellphone
Scared you skip out for beer during comercials
Because the revolution won’t be televised

The revolution won’t be televised (x8)

[Outro]
So tell me why they hate my skin momma
They wanna kill and still be in momma
You need change fuck a friend momma
I just don’t know where to begin momma
Or maybe I do and I’m still on my own
Ways of my destruction, lately I battle in a corruption
I like my yach with 21 savage and pockets of cabage know
And eruption some pussy in peace of mind can rewind my to assumptions
Shit, I ain’t here to talk about Trump
Redundacy cumbers me, rather humbling
Ask to those who wear Rihanna Future
Hope this manice of music provide some confort for youtha
Used behond what was given
I’m a black man in a white world
Whitelashed to be bitted back
Then is Jim Crow when the hype swirls
But the call might come along on my way home
But I’m scared straight, shit switch in a hearthbeat
How much will it cost me to be civilized when I’m criminalized
Ironic when it’s minimal times
Racism individualized
Luminize in this critical times

Because the revolution won’t be televised

Southern leaves, southern trees we hung from
Barren souls, heroic songs unsung
Forgive them father they know this knot is undone
Tied with the rope that my grandmother died
Pride of the pilgrims affect lives of millions
Since slave days separating, fathers from children
Institution ain’t just a building
But a method, of having black and brown bodies fill them
We ain’t seen as human beings with feelings
Will the U.S. Ever be us? Lord willing!
For now we know, the new Jim Crow
They stop, search and arrest our souls
Police and policies patrol philosophies of control
A cruel hand taking hold

Fresh manicure, breaking down the bag
Didn’t even stain my clean nails

Catch a body on they free will
My West Coast niggas ride for me
Word to the homie G Will
Dollar sign, dollar sign, dollar sign
My crew look like an exhibition now
Mama only riding Benzes now
Traded in the Expedition now
My bitches only flying business now
My pretty face up in the Gusiness now
I model Dior like I’m Christian now
Got her masturbating to my pictures now
Two front gold teeth
All I want for Christmas is peace between brothers and police
24 diamond karat gold leash on my exotic pet
Exotic car, no lease
And I designed it, back to you flooded with diamonds
Bitches they call me Your Highness
Sipping on medicine, when no coughing, no sinus
That alarm all the sirens

Sweet land of liberty, incarcerated country
Shot me with your ray-gun
