Freedom, ignorance, jealousy, belligerence
Anger, self-control, tolerance, to and fro
Wisdom, ecstasy, addiction, dependency

Discipline, counteract, pray for peace then attack
Dominance, contradict, upper class, derelict
Downgrade, downsize, upstate, uprise

Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?

Downtown on the block, at the club steaming hot
Dancing, talking shit, telling lies like a pimp
Meanwhile underpaid, read like second grade
Uncle Sam, sign you up, benefits and a gun

Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?

African people, oh, African people
Oh, African people, oh, African people
Shotgun, shotgun, shotgun, shotgun

Rise up, over-stand, stand your ground, own your land
Serve all, love all, never sleep, never fall
Meditate, eat right, pray first then fight
But for truth not for fame, not for glory or the game

Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?

African people, African people
African people, African people
Shotgun, shotgun, shotgun, shotgun

Liberia, Iraq, dark brown, light black
South Africa, Mozambique, mud hut, concrete
Aids ridden, heart disease, strange fruit, southern trees
Sierra Leone, diamond mines, Cameroon, pipe lines

Port-au-Prince, Salvador, civil right, civil war
Zimbabwe, trench town, money makin', Queen's bound
B X, Shaolin, uptown, Brooklyn, upstate, Newburgh
Unseen, unheard

Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?
Now tell me, where my niggas at?

African people, African people
African people, African people
Shotgun, shotgun, shotgun
African people, African people, African people
