lyrics

(Intro)
Comedic rant by Elijah Flowers

(Verse 1)
Uh, So they keep on raising the roof/ prices
They ain’t giving raises to you/ bias
Cost of living is through the roof/ highest
It’s ever been, it is evident, there is proof/ liars
Life is suicide in itself
Breaking our own backs/ We die to assume the wealth
What we assume is wealth/ is really doom to our health
The root of all evil moving in stealth
Instead of focusing on job creation
they change the make up of the population
And got the nerve to holla beautification
Now I don’t know what mirror you been facing
But we’ve all been desensitized
To our own homes gentrified
The definition of appropriation
Take it from its roots, treat it like your own creation

(Hook)
Ohhh so you just gon come and take our swag
Ohhh so you just gon come and take our style
Ohhh so you just gon come and take our sound huh
Ok well go ahead and take a bow
Go ahead n take a bow
Go ahead n take a bow
Your forefathers would be so proud
Go ahead n take a bow
What you takin now?

(Verse 2)
Uh, Now you can’t just come and take the culture
And not even embrace the color
Not very bald eagle of you
That in fact makes you a vulture
Just because we wear dreads
That don’t mean that you gotta fear us
We telling you our lives matter
And it’s obvious that you don’t hear us
You don’t want us in your back yard
So you feel the need to build gates
Got fences ’round the mighty dollar
All hail Bill Gates
And now we’ve all been desensitized
To our own homes gentrified
The definition of appropriation
Take it from its roots, treat it like your own creation

(Hook)

(Guitar Break)

(Verse 3)
Uh, Now how are we supposed to build
If we always gotta rebuild
And you the one getting money
From the things that we build
And since they won’t share the for-mula
We hit licks for moola
You know what you think the next stop’ll be
It’s either Jake or the jeweler
I’m saying hey Mr. Monopoly
I got the money for your property
But here’s the part that bothers me
This the same land you got from me
So we’ve all been desensitized
To our own homes gentrified
The definition of appropriation
Take it from its roots, treat it like your own creation

(Hook)

about

Champagne Duane Oakland, California

It is often said that an artist can change the game, but all too often it doesn’t happen. In the case of Champagne Duane, people should at least start paying attention. He is the definition of hard work and has brought his solid work ethic to the booth. Creative, witty, edgy, smooth and perceptive only begin to describe his approach to the game, but one word you should use is, complete. ... more
