No more shackles and whips
Now it's lease and credit
Don't hire us so we get locked when we flip
Late start but it's America right, work hard and you'll get it
Threw us in the lion cage blinded and hurt then they dipped
Came back when we beat it with nothing but grit
Sweat trickled down his pale skin because now the tables have flipped
Waived his Rolex and said, "Come here boy, sit"
Some ran over quickly forgetting all that we learned
Those that didn't, they got their throats slit
The other brothers turned their heads murmuring,"y'all trippin"
Not realizing they were helping them get freedom and not just a million
