Just as Well as I

You know the facts just as well as I,
so lets be legitimate,
I'm not saying I like that gang stuff
but don't pretend your innocent.

People talking about rolling dice
and shouting out they got two,
but how else are the going to find a way
to get some money and some food.

Don't you see the employment statistics
people of color are already at risk,
they to rap and sell cd's
but you know no one listening to that disk.

They try to survive
can't you see it in their eyes,
I mean don't surprised
you got more enough to stay alive.

they don't have a penny to their name
I mean you say it for the fame,
that's all I have to say
and I bet now you are ashamed.
