Your checks will arrive on one other day

Another day, one other dime, one other rhyme, one other greenback

Another stuffed shirt with one other white collar

Criminals, Wall Street takin’ the pie

And all of the black man will get is a plate of white lies

Prisons recruitin’ em and police be shootin’ em

And rap artists lootin’ em and labels are dilutin’ em

And Barack Obama be fearful of me

‘Cause I don’t swallow data and I spit it totally free

Lemme clear my throat, aha-ha-haaa
