Prince2045 Radical Man

Spoken with crowd cheering in background} How can a non-musician discuss the future of music from anything other than a consumer point of view? These few people make decisions for the bulk of us, without consulting any of us. Sales and distributions of our futures, uh! If this world were fair and right, they'd give up the car keys this very night. Damn! (Hit it!) Two, three, four, five, six, seven Flash forward, 2045 What did you stand for in the life of your pride When faced with the final judgment of today Couldn't profit from the game That you and your niggas play Radical man Save the life Come on take a stand Give that money back Let's make a plan The brand new currency Taking care of one another You and me (Radical man) Flash backwards, 1999 (backwards, 1999) In a world shot full of profit, see (Tell me) How'd y'all stay alive? (Everyone of y'all) Depending on this so called man For everything you got comes from his hand Food, water, the clothes you wear How many of y'all niggas really care? To care (to care) Let's define this word nigga (define, define) Someone who stays high (high) Watching their life go by (by, by) Someone content with riding behind (ride that) Nigga They come in all colors White, black, Puerto Rican Is that the main niggas we're speakin' about? Wear suits and buy and sell corporations With only one thing in mind (Only one thing in mind)(Break it up!) That is the destruction of the so-called radical man By 2045 (Let's get radical) Watch me now! School's in the yard, digital games When the war broke out we called your name (What's your name?) Everyone of color put on the front line Holocaust Avenue, 2009 Get an education, good job who says? (say) Fool with the gold rush drinkin' Alize I don't play nobody that's makin' no sense today You got your own mind, so you think it's ok (It's not ok) Telling themselves lies, Mos Def say Where you gonna stay, nigga (Where you gonna stay nigga) (Oh my God, it's the Green Mile!) What's up y'all? What y'all wanna do? (Talkin' about a radical man) Ain't nobody ever lay crew no? I could really run that computer Make it flow (flow flow flow flow flow) If you ain't born with it (Radical man) Talkin' about the two and four, hit me! Wait up What George say., all around Alright We play Miles Davis, and D'Angelo We playin' D-flat in the funk You better act like you know We don't care, whatever {unknown} I'd rather know, rather know (what?) How to be a better man Hey! James Brown, Chuck D. and Jimmy Turn me up louder now I don't think y'all hear me (I hear ya) 2045 We will stay alive 2045 (everybody now) The flow is out of site And the whole pop scenario is just nothin' but a dream (A bad dream) The day you will wake is the day you get the real cream, nigga Radical man (Radical man) Who got the gift, who got the plan? Radical man (Radical man) Who got the gift, who got the plan? This is the funk the industry most fears Artists getting together In a locker board of directors I don't think so Nobody's running this Let's talk about DNA, nigga The radical man {Spoken with crowd cheering in background} Where will you be in 2045? 30 million people right now, are being wiped off the face of the planet by disease. They claim they have no cure. In the matter of a blinking eye, all of us right now can testify. Take a stand, radical man.
