Qu’est-ce que ça donne, un rappeur vieux ?

Pour ceux qui n’é­taient pas au courant (ou qui s’en foutaient jusque-là), après avoir été rappeur sub­ver­sif et avant de tourn­er dans des séries poli­cières à la con, Ice‑T fut le leader de Body Count…

1994 BC still in the house They did
Every­thing they could do to take us out
But like any good mon­ster that just made us stronger
You see, they don’t like us and they don’t like you,
The BC fan,
‘Cause they know we stand for three things
Truth, jus­tice and fuck the amer­i­can way
That word jus­tice got me fucked up though
Twen­ty cops in the street, two go to jail
Thou­sands of peo­ple died in wars
Over­seas and it’s justice ?
You think they give a fuck about us ?
You’re a fool

Born yel­low,
Born brown,
Born red,
Born black,
Born dead
Dead
Born dead

Born asian,
Born jewish,
Born latino,
Born poor,
Born dead
Dead
Born dead

But you don’t hear me though

Dead
New York, Atlanta, Chica­go, Oak­land, Mia­mi, Detroit

Every day I got­ta get out my mutha­fuckin’ bed,
Put on my mutha­fuckin’ gun,
Down in my mutha­fuckin’ gun,
Down in my mutha­fuckin’ pants, ’cause
Mutha­fuck­a’s out here is trippin’

How the fuck you gonna get up every morning
Tryin’ to wor­ry about if you gonna make it to the next evening
Do you understand ?
Some­times we take for granted
The lit­tle things like food, like freedom

Born in somalia,
Born in south america,
Born in south africa,
Born in south central,
Born dead
Dead

Born dead
