about

Black Lives Matter. Police brutality must stop.
So much needs to be changed.

I called my brother Tumani aka Mr. Tibbs to see how he was doing because I know he has lost family at the hands of cops.

We spoke for hours. He told me he had written words to a beat of mine as a form of therapy and a call to action. A prayer for the people.

100% of sales will be donated to the Black Lives Matter Global Network as well as the People's Food Program of the Bronx, which is organized by Black Lives Matter of Greater NY.

lyrics

Don't know where to begin or where to start
been here too many times and it breaks my heart.
Black ink on white paper that's soul on ice
A letter to the Beast who keeps taking my life
I write because I need to I write because I have too
I write because it bleeds thru what will you do ?
I write for my elders I write for my brothers
I write for my sisters who are wives and mothers
I write for the babies I write for the seeds
I write for the fighters the ones that bleed
I write for those gone I write for the dead
the ones who seek justice you heard what I said
I write for My Grandpa, Uncle and Doc
Cause 2 out 3 lost there life to a cop.
I write for the riders I write for the allies
I write for the ones who don't have to pick sides
I write for ones that film & the ones that shoot
Thank God for them they help me and you.
I write in defiance I write out of fear
i write because i love you I write because I care
Scattered existence on public assistance
Destroy your Masters, this system is backwards
We know you cowards are feeding us garbage
cut off our options you must have forgotten
without resolution there can be no progress

Let em yell and spread lies as we mobilize
I won't cry anymore to level up the score
if the truth is full of lies
i hope ❤ survives
to be honest I can't take this anymore
