Right now, it is it is almost.. it is almost uhh,
IMPOSSIBLE for you not to see how strong rap has gotten
Why'knowhatI'msayin, it's it's like umm..
Our our brothers and sisters, our youths, and some of our adults
Their ear is PINNED to rap music right now
And if you really wanna get our message out
And really wanna start teachin, we need to start doin that
We we really need to start usin, our methods, why'knowhatI'msayin?
The Last Poets did it with poetry
And uhh, and and.. even in our history
From a ancient Afl- African civilization
Poets went from village to village
And that's how, stories and messages and lessons were taught
Why'knowhatI'mssayin, and so like you say, history repeats itself
And so.. it it was, it was.. at it was, why'know obvious
It was, pick it up, why'know?
Bein the race that we are, bein the strong race that we are
We picked it up, we picked up those positive, those positive vibes
And we started rappin and so
I think it is, it's a very good medium too
