Give it to 'em

Nuff respect and praise to the creator
Over the years it seems that i became a landmark
In the hip-hop field of art
I shed light yet my skin is dark

I'm not concerned with climbin' the chart
'cause, why should you pay when it comes from the heart?
I'll start, 'cause only jah will create it
I'll just name it, edutainment

People sit and they look at my album
Like a problem, they try to solve 'em
They don't know it only leads the way
To a bright more positive day

By itself, it's not the bright day
Sit up straight and hear what i say
Fear and ignorance, i'm down for stoppin' this
But the bright day is your consciousness

I am poet, my words will heal you
I'm not a phony, i'll really feel you
That's why i walk and talk to my nation
Wherever they are in any situation

They usually ask for an autograph
And i'll whip out the pen and just write
Blast-master, k r s o n e bdp
Peace and unity

But do not concentrate on the paper
Concentrate on the laws of the creator
'cause when the paper's gone, it will deceive you
But allah will never leave you

Nothing i say now is hypothetical
These are the facts, a little metaphysical
We are one, every heart every lung
So why then was the black man hung?

He was hung by the so-called christians
That went to church and did not listen
See jesus couldn't stand politics
So they nailed him to a crucifix

Then it was that way, today it's a trigger
So why is the pope such a political figure?
I don't know but it's really beyond me
But through knowledge, they'll never con me

'cause from jesus christ to right now
Every time a black man speaks up, ka-pow
See people concentrate on the leader
And not the message comin' through the speaker

If the christians really heard christ
The black man never would've lived this life
My point is that do not concentrate
On what i state, create or debate

I might be great and you might admire
But what i say is to take you much higher
More higher than the physical plane
To the plane of forces in the astral plane

The mental plane and the final three
They're all around you, yet you can't see
So grab the sphere of life and aim it
And you'll be guided by edutainment
