KILLAH PRIEST - "B.I.B.L.E."
"I searched for the truth since my youth. And went to church since birth but it wasn't worth the loot-That I was paying plus the praying-I didn't like staying cause of busy-bodies and dizzy hotties-That the preacher had souped up with lies-Had me cooped up looking at loot, butt and thighs. During the service he swallowed up the poor-And after they heard this, they wallowed on the floor. But I ignored and explored my history that was untold
And watched mysteries unfold..."
I give thanks daily for emcees that dropped science in their rhymes, for without them my own life would have taken a much different turn, and many very positive movements would have never been successful without Hip Hop's Power To Mobilize The Masses. The thing here now is to get This Thing Of Ours back on course. #EachOneTeachOne
"I strolled through the books of Job to unfold-And open bibles, instead of hoping on revivals-Calling on His name and screaming hallelujah-When he hardly knew ya, that's how the devil's fooled ya. See look into my eyes brethren, that's the lies of a Reverend-Why should you die to go to heaven? The Earth is already in space, the bible I embrace-
A difficult task I had to take-I studied till my eyes was swollen, and only arose when I found out that we were the chosen. I deal with the truth, and build with the youth-
And teach my son as he kneels on the stoop-Son, life is a pool of sin, corrupted with foolish men..."
