Bambu Station – Pass It

From Sumer down to Mansa Musa
Wilmont Blyden pass it down to Garvey
Who had the answer
We cannot let the information stop here
Our generation got to forward Iya
Pass it, Pass it, Pass it, Yea

Pass it, pass it, pass it, pass it
Pass me some information
So I can be revolution
I man feel like a captive
I feel like I’m trapped in a cage

Knowledge is not so bountiful in America
Me got a bachelor’s degree
And still don’t know a ting you see
Me just, learning how to survive in the system
Learning how to perpetuate a sin
Learning bout another man’s ting lord
I don’t like what your life can bring so
Give me some knowledge
Pass on the knowledge
I feel like a captive, lord
Help me out of this bondage y’all
And let the music flow, on and on

Pass it, on and on, pass it, on and on
Pass it, on and on, pass it

My mind, my mind
Has played some tricks on me
And it’s so apparent
That it’s common to see
Time and time I tried to earn a living
But to get ahead I must commit a sin
I guess I must struggling cause
I don’t like what your life can bring so
Give me some knowledge
Pass on the knowledge
I feel like a captive, lord
Help me out of this bondage y’all
And let the music flow, on and on

Pass it, on and on, pass it, on and on
Pass it, on and on, pass it

Corruption is so bountiful in America
A profit for you works out for a loss to me
We’re not, working like
Communities should be
Me helping you and you helping me
What is wrong with this picture I man see
Got to be the system in this society!
Give me some knowledge
Pass on the knowledge
I feel like a captive, lord
Help me out of this bondage yall
And let the music flow, on and on

Pass it, on and on, pass it, on and on
Pass it, on and on, pass it

From Sumer down to Mansa Musa
Wilmont Blyden pass it down to Garvey
Who had the answer
We cannot let the information stop here
Our generation, our nation, our generation

 

 

“If you are not yourself, if you surrender your personalty, you have nothing left to give the world. You have no pleasure, no use, nothing which will attract or charm me, for by the suppression of your individuality, you lose your distinctive character.”

-Wilmont Blyden

 

“The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind. Never forget that intelligence rules the world and ignorance carries the burden. Therefor, remove yourself as far as possible from ignorance and seek as far as possible to be intelligent.”

-Marcus Mosiah Garvey

They Don’t Give A F**** About Us

Y’all ain’t never just tripped and pictured
And just looked at the whole situation
Cause once u look at it
You know
(Once you really do)
They don’t give a fuck about us
They don’t give a fuck about us
They don’t give a fuck about us
If I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody give a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
Some say niggaz is hard headed cause we love to trip
Equipped with game so we bang wit this thuggish shit
I see you trying to hide, Hoping that nobody don’t notice
You must always remember you’re still a member of the hopeless
See ya black like me, So you snap like me
When these devils try to plot, Trap our young black seeds
Look it, Cops are just as crooked as the niggas they chasin’
Lookin’ for role models, Our father figures is bases
Some say they expect Illuminate take my body to sleep
Niggas at the party with they shotties, Just as rowdy as me
Before I fear computer chips, I gotta deal wit brothas flippin’
I don’t see no devils bleedin’, Only black blood drippin’
We can change, whatcha now say?
I’m watchin’ niggaz work their lives out without pay (huh)
Whatever it takes to switch places wit the bustas on top
I’m bustin’ shots make the world stop
They don’t give a fuck about us
And if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
And if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
(EDI)
It’s the morning after and now all the laughter is gone
Time to reflect on what you did cause they saying you wrong
I’m sure you had your reasons dawg, I don’t doubt you
See the simple fact of the matter is they don’t give a fuck about you
Or them five mouths you forced to feed (uh-huh)
No including yourself, All you want is wealth they perceiving itas greed
So as you loaded up that mack and continue to bust your mind
was on paper, Thinking they don’t give a fuck about us
(Tupac)
I’m seeing it clearer
Hating the picture in the mirror
They claim we inferior
So why the fuck these devils fear ya?
I’m watching my nation die, genocide the cause
Expect a blood bath, The aftermath is y’alls
I told ya last album, we need help cause we dying
Give us a chance, help us advance cause we trying
Ignore my whole plea, watching us in disgust
And then they beg when my guns bust
They don’t give a fuck about us
And if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
And if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
(Kastro)
Now all my homies got love for me
Down to catch a slug for me
Guaranteed to bleed deeply
Now that’s love, Shit
Nobody else could give a fuck
If I’m tore down, from the floor down
Six-feet deep in the cut
What the fuck done went wrong
How long will I be mourned?
When I’m gone, same song
Ain’t gave a fuck all along
And who am I to blame ’em?
Just do or die through the rainin’
Since they don’t give a fuck
I don’t, feel what I’m saying?
(Kadafi)
Now thug niggaz die but multiply in doubles
Wrapped in plastic, Or closed casket for our troubles
Present times, We busted like bubbles
With the police, This nation’s peace sent here to run you
Now look at what this crooked world has come to
I grew up on the other side of perfect, a life of hurtin’
Man I still hustle, so I’m dyin’ certain
So why spent your time poor and working
I see no reason, So I stay ballin’ season to season
Why you stuck thinking that they give a fuck?
(Napolean)
You tell me my world is in peace, but nigga your lying
Cause half of my niggas, long gone,
Buried in the dirt just for trying
Sometimes I think my block is dying, And that it’s awful
To wake up to another day, shit ain’t change that awful
I wake up sweatin’, dreamin’, coughin’
Seein’ me upside down backwards head twisted
While I’m layin’ in the coffin
The shit comes around so often, So tell me something
Before I take it out on the world, and get to dumpin’
Nigga I been so through pain go through the struggle
Doin the same thing you did at my age and that’s hustlin’
On the edge of straight bustin’
Well since you don’t give a fuck, you frontin’
And I’ma drink my Hennessey like it ain’t nothin’
(Tupac)
Now if I choose to ride, thuggin’ till the day I die
They don’t give a fuck about us
While I’m kickin’ rhymes, getting to their children’s minds
Now they give a fuck about us
They wanna see us die, they kick us every time we try
They don’t give a fuck about us
So while I’m getting high, I’m watching as the world goes by
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
Now if I choose to ride, thuggin’ till the day I die
They don’t give a fuck about us
While I’m kickin’ rhymes, getting to their children’s minds
Now they give a fuck about us
They wanna see us die, they kill us every time we try
They don’t give a fuck about us
So while I’m getting high, I’m watching as the world goes by
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
Get your money nigga get your money!
Rise my nation rise
They don’t give a fuck about us… rise
Get your asses on the right path nigga
They don’t give a fuck about us
Get your money nigga get your money!
