Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first black man

Long ago before the white man could paint the black man

With a gun in his hand

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first white man

At the very moment when they looked around and said f it

I steal this land

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first black man

Long ago before the white man could paint the black man

With a gun in his hand

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first white man

At the very moment when they looked around and said f it

I steal this land

Everybody wanna tell me what I am what I am not

You ain black you a mothaf white boy

Shut ya mouth do it right boy aight boy

Man why you such a hype boy

Why you always talk about being black

Skin too white nigga f that

Everything you talk about cut that

That door you trying to open you could shut that

Grip the gat yeah that how I buck back

Tell me what I am and what I know now

All this prejudice has got to go

Life is moving fast it need to slow down

Come and see me when I am in yo town

Practice what we preach before it go down

Practice what we preach before it go

Yes I got the gift to gab fo sho

Will I have to get the gat no no

Yes I got to get the gat fo sho

But will have to get the gat get the gat get the gat

Masta deep down inside of me

The plantation deep down inside of me

Everybody f like sodomy

Because one or the other what it gotta be

Tell me why my momma gotta lie to me

Unity for everyone that lied to me

Peace on earth what I try to be

I just wanna spread the message of equality

Yes I got to get the gat fo sho

Will I have to get the gat no no

Yes I got to get the gat fo sho

But will have to get the gat get the gat get the gat

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first black man

Long ago before the white man could paint the black man

With a gun in his hand

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first white man

At the very moment when they looked around and said f it

Long ago before the white man could paint the black man

With a gun in his hand

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first white man

At the very moment when they looked around and said f it

I steal this land

Take it back take it way back take it way way back to about 1990

Shady grove hospital in rockville maryland

7 am where a biracial baby was born

To a black father and a white mother

Father that wasn there addicted to crack cocaine alcohol and various other drugs

Same as his mom

Way way back

So I gonna tell you about that I gonna tell you about how

All this young boy ever wanted was happiness

All he ever wanted was positivity

All he ever wanted to do was entertain

And this boy went through hell

You gotta understand his mother was racist

Which is crazy

Because how in the f is you gonna have all these black babies

With black men but you racist

Like bitch that don make no sense

But it is what it is

You know he grew up her callin him a nigga

The kids at school callin him a cracker

Identifying as black looking as white

Being told what you can or can be

This kid went through everything

He went through

He saw narcotics in the household

He saw violence murderers drug dealers

He was kidnapped there was crazy shit that happened to this kid

And he persevered while the whole world said

What they said

Said you wouldn be shit

You ain gon be nothin nothin nothin nothin

And I and he he said f that I persevere

And that why the message is always peace love and positivity

And see he always saw things from two sides

He always saw things from two sides

He always knew that the message

Everybody was born equal

Regardless of race religion color creed and sexual orientation

He knew that because he saw that

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back

Because he was stripped and torn down by his black brothers and sisters

That were uneducated and that did not know

And he was stripped

And he was torn down by his white side that did not know

These people that are ignorant that cannot see the bigger picture

That must fight and kill and murder each other

But once again all he ever wanted to do

Was spread a message

Of equality for every man woman and child

Regardless of race religion color creed and sexual orientation

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first

Now imagine this child growing up

And seeing the craziest shit

Being a part of the craziest shit

Running around with the wrong people

Running around with guns and knives and fighting and stealing and

All this because he didn know he didn know

But he knew deep down in his heart that it wasn right

And he knew that he needed to get away from it

Now I want you to also imagine that at 17 years old

This child okay leaves home and gets two jobs to support himself

Two jobs that he works in the morning and the evenings

And then he would then come home to about 8 or 9 hours of sleep

But spend 4 5 6 hours of that working on music persevering

Grabbing the remote control and looking in the mirror

And pretending to see thousands and thousands and thousands of people

Just chanting his name

Hoping that it would happen

But the but the but the world said no

Mothaf little mothaf no no no no no no no no

Ya nigga ya cracka ya white boy ya black mothaf

No no

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back

And he said f that

He said peace love and positivity

He said equality for all man

Regardless of race religion color creed and sexual orientation

Yeah

Now I also want you to imagine people telling him

That he did not live this life

You just a white boy you ain never experienced that shit

You from gaithersburg maryland nothing happens there

Oh no no we no we weren there we didn live with you

In your section 8 household we didn live with the narcotics

And violence in your household

We just saw it from the outside outside outside outside

And since you white you gotta have money right

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first black man

And this young man persevered in spite of

What people told him he was wasn and would

Never be

Take it back take it way back

Take it way way back to the first black

And that man is here today proud

A lover of all human beings

Regardless of race religion color creed and sexual orientation

Yeah yeah

And he here to say

Even though we all born and created equal

We are not treated equally

There extremists on every side

And you should just do your best to live life

And let other people believe whatever they wanna believe

As long as they not hurtin anybody

You can believe they going to hell

You can believe it not right

Believe you superior fine

Just stop killing each other
