Malcolm X said that freedom and death go hand in hand
And that the most dangerous weapon is an educated black man
Freedom is what seperates us as indivduals , my salute to those who take a stand
Rewind back to 21 february 1965
Murderd at the age of 40, but imprinted in our hearts 4 ever more
Shining black serpent
Refused to be the white mans servant
But with disobedience came consequence
The symbol of freedom shot in the chest
He must have thought of those very words when he took his last breath
Fast forward 46 yrs and some are still opressed..
Mahatma Ghandi said that an eye for and eye will leave us all blind
Who knew he would be killed by his own kind
Murderd at the age of 79
30 Janaury 1948
On his nightly strole , they sealed his fate
He restrained from all form of violence
Preaching peace and equality, one shot left all of India in complete silence..
Martin Luther King said that he had a dream
But behind closed doors they where plotting and evil scheme
Adressed racial differences, far from obscene
Marched, consulted and pleaded
Words to the masses, they should have heeded
Struck down and though his people bled
Dragged through the streets and left for dead
And even if their eyes were dry from all the tears they had shed
He advices them to turn the other cheek
Followed the teachings of Ghandi, speak..
Murderd at the age of 39
With that, the dream turned in to a nightmare, an evil crime
4 april 1968..
Tupac Amaru Shakur said if you dont have something to live for
Then find something to die for
He adressed the wealthy and spoke for the poor
But they grew weary and wanted to settle the score
Cuz he wasn't just a rapper more of a revolutionary
People were primary the goverment was secondary
Socialy aware, at this time this was very rare
Murderd at the age of 25
Never will there be another rapper more vigilant and live..
13 september 1996
Just another black man caught up in the mix...
See Im old enough to know there aint no justice
Do you really want to fight for freedom, knowing what the price is ?
