Of Course We’re IGNORED... !!!
Those Whose Art Is RAW... !!!
When It Comes To Views That DEFINE The TRUTH...
About How It Is When You’re One Who THINKS...
And Has DARK SKIN And Does NOT RESTRICT...
How You Speak About Things When It Comes To Racists...
And Historical Links That Expose Dark Truths...
About Blacks Who Abused Those With Dark Hues Within Their Own Crews... !!!
So NOT The Types Hand Picked To Be A... “ Good Nig’ “... !!!
Who WON’T Go Off The Script Just Like Kanye Did... !!!
But Hey I’m Not Like Him Or Like Those In The Throes of These TV Shows...
Now Winning Awards And Getting Applause...
Because Their Cause Is To Expose Flaws...
That Show How It Goes In Entertainment Zones...
Where Light Skin Tones Get To Be Around Those...
Who APPARENTLY NOW WANT BLACK Folks Around... !!!
When For YEARS They’ve Been UNABLE To See...
How Racism Feeds The INDUSTRY... ?!?
Where Artists Deal In Being REAL... !?!
Well Actually REAL FAKE BELIEVE... !!!
They’re PAID To LIE Okay Paid To... ACT...
But The Simple FACT Is That Black Minds...
Have Been CAST ASIDE If They’re The Type...
To QUESTION Things Like Light Skins Being Picked...
To Play The Roles of DARK SKINNED Folks... ?!?
Who KEPT TIGHT LIPS When They Got RICH For Doing These Things... !?!
And When It Comes To Music We’re IGNORED If We Bring CONSCIOUS Lyrics...
That DON’T Talk About Things Like KILLING Black Skins...
Or Drug Dealing Like Some Criminal King... !!!
Who Believes That’s The Way To Be Seen As Being GREAT... !!!
So That Some White Guy Can Sit Back And SMILE...
When They Get PAID For Getting IGNORANCE Played On Radio Air Waves... !!!
You See When You Are Black And DON’T Sign Contracts...
To Make Music Like THAT That’s Right You’re IGNORED...
Thrown On The Cutting Floor And Told NOT TO CALL Their Office ANYMORE... !!!
So Now That A FEW Are GETTING THROUGH...
They’re Seen As Being BOLD When They’ve Sold Their Souls...
To Be Amongst Those Who Are FREAKY Like Ho’s...
Or Yes... PROSTITUTES So DON’T Get It Confused... !!!
Poverty Breeds An INABILITY To REFUSE Money...
That Gives Life SECURITY That’s... BEYOND BELIEF... !!!
So It's EASY To See Why REAL ARTISTRY...
Is FORSAKEN To Be An Industry SLAVE...
Whose Fame Is Gained By NOT Being Brave...
When You Have A Black Face And.... “ Entertain “....
You’d Better Believe That Whites Will See...
A Person Who They Think is Cool...
Because You CHOOSE To Be A PLIABLE TOOL...
Who Can Be USED... So Don’t Get It Confused... ?!?
Blacks Artists Who QUICKLY Get Through... !!!
DON’T Tend To Be Those Who Deal In Artistry...
That’s AUTHENTIC And Has... INTEGRITY... !!!
Because Blacks Whose Thoughts And Creations Are RAW... !!!
Are Those That FORCE Whites To CLOSE DOORS...
BEFORE Their Art Can Cause Problems That ENFORCE...
The Type of Race War That’ll Rock WEAK Jaws... !!!
So These Last Words of BIG VIRGE Verse...
Explain Why Blacks Who DON’T Compromise...
What We Choose To Write To... Fall In Line...
….......... DON’T Get Contracts ............ !!!
And STRUGGLE To EVER GET RECOGNISED...
BEFORE We’ve GONE And LOST Our Lives... !!!
And Are The Reason Why...
These Poetic Lines of REALITY RHYMES Are Those I Have Called...
