Track Name: Jo Universal, Devon Ginn - Brother
[Verse 1]
Repression
Oppression
As far as recollection/
Mama's in the kitchen praying against empty blessings/
She's stressing
No resting/
Is she in this world alone
Cause the man with the land
Has the upper hand/
Legal contraband
Power based off bands/
THE DOLLAR!
In this land of valor
Kill us by the hour/

[Hook]
Where's my Brother (8x)

[Verse 2]
Where's my brother
When I need some soul to loan/
Where's my brother
When I stray away from home/
It's so easy to see
There's no God in me/
Was I made to make it on my own
Where's my brother (falsetto)

[Hook]
Where's my Brother (8x)

[Verse 3]
Brother baggage
Merely vertebrae in this city of backbone
And the wrinkle in ya laughter don't iron it out just yet
We've got closets to clean
And clothes to put away
And secrets to fold
We can't walk across water with bare feet like skipped river stones
Help ya brother cross the river and you shall reach the other side as well
Back broken
We token the breathe of deities seeing me swollen courage of brother
Hiding truth a plot you refuse to follow
And you don't know where you'll go
And that's OK
I'll show you the way
You're too religion
Not enough water
Iron sharpens iron
As man sharpens man
Let this breeze catch fire
Unlearn the false truths used to colonize and enslave the smile in your melanin
BROTHER
Brother
brother...

[Hook]
Where's my Brother (8x)

[Outro]
Track Name: DeMarcus Rashad, K Harris, Pope Adrian Bless - Too Black
[Intro]

They say you gotta work 10x harder
Be 10x smarter
10x better
Just to have half a chance
Cause I'm black
But I know who I am
De Marcus Rashad

[Verse 1 - De Marcus Rashad]

Is it because I am Black
Cause I am free
That you love murdering me
Is it because your afraid
We use to be slaves
and now we are modern day kings
Is it because we've survived
Your genocide
You show you hate us inside
wondering how could we, Why?
Fearing we'll rise
Cause we're the children of gods
No need in hiding the truth
Cause we all know
it is no secret to us
You'd whether see us enslaved or see us encaged
Thats why you lock us in cuffs
One thing I know it is burning me up
you leaving us dead in the streets
It could be me
Murdered for living while black
Thats why I scream fuck the police

[Hook]

Is it my strength?
Is it my stride?
Why are you scared
Scared for your life?
Are you afraid
that we may find out the truth?
Afraid for our lives
Seems we don't have much too lose....
Cause a nigga too black!
Is it cause a nigga too black?
Is it cause a nigga too black?
Is it cause a nigga too black?

[Verse 2 - K Harris]

Black on black
Like Fred Hampton and Huey P
You spent a lot for that Louie V
Now who was he?
Do u know of the name u representing?
Or do you not ask questions before spending?
You ball hard but came from humble beginnings
Got everything you ever wanted now you think you're winning
You lust, sinning and love believing that your good
Came up a lil bit now you shitting on ya hood
Can't tell the difference between wants and needs
So you buy everything you see
Enticed by your greed
It's the life indeed
but does it keep your sanity
Insane buying chains exploiting your own vanity
Staying strapped prepared for any altercation
No contemplating
Use it without a thought of hesitation
And if you gotta give dat chain you
Will die for them materials obtained bruh

[Hook]

Is it my strength?
Is it my stride?
Why are you scared
Scared for your life?
Are you afraid
that we may find out the truth?
Afraid for our lives
Seems we don't have much too lose....
Cause a nigga too black!
Is it cause a nigga too black?
Is it cause a nigga too black?
Is it cause a nigga too black?

[Verse 3 - Pope Adrian Bless]

Joe Clemmons, my nigga
How you feelin, bull?.
Emmitt Tilt-A-Whirl riding in this carnival
Ferris wheel and deal with death
Merry go round
Here's a round clip of old films that we shooting now
Tell me why the cage bird sings in a hollow verse
How to kill a mockingbird sound when I see a hearse
Jim Crow tryna pigeon toe tapping at my doe (door)
Napping underneath The railroads
Til our bodies hurts
Catch me in the crossfire
Triple K (KKK) tire swings singing on the poplar (tree)
Tree of life planted as the bell tolls
Shawn Michaels kick the whole bullet as he drops
Cop killing stick to ribs like Velcro
Scared for Taheem and (st) Taaliyah
It's a scary thing
Bury me alive
Cherish me until I'm bleached out
Looking for a scary scene
Tell my brothers reach out
God gave us everything
Hatred got us leeched out

All made martyrs to a judicial system designed to oppress and persecute an entire people. They are unsung heroes. They serve as the inspiration of a new generation, a new movement. The revolution is global. Because we receive no justice, there will be no peace.

And now a moment of silence...
