I'm glad Reagan's Dead! lyrics...

I realize not everyone on here is a fan of rap music...but, these lyrics deserve to be read. This is easily one of the best songs to come out in YEARS...Truth & Knowledge bombs. Enjoy.

"The ballot or the bullet, some freedom or some bullshit
Will we ever do it big, or just keep settling for little shit
We brag on having bread, but none of us are bakers
We talk about having greens, but none of us own acres
If none of us own acres, and none of us grow wheat
Then who will feed our people when our people need to eat
So it seems our people starve from lack of understanding
Cuz all we seem to give them is some balling and some dancing
And some talking about cars and imaginary mansions
We should be indicted for bullshit we're inciting
Hand the children death and pretend that it's exciting
We are advertisements for agony and pain
We exploit the youth, we tell them to join a gang
We tell them dope stories, introduce them to the game
Just like Oliver North introduced us to cocaine
In the 80's when the bricks came on military planes

The end of the Reagan Era, I'm like eleven, twelve, or
Old enough to understand that the shit'll change forever
They declared the war on drugs like a war on terror
But all it really did was let the police terrorize whoever
But mostly black boys, they would call us "niggers"
And lay us on our belly, with their fingers on their triggers
Their boots were on our head, their dogs were on our crotches
And they would beat us up if we had diamonds on our watches
And they would take our drugs and money, as they pick our pockets
I guess that's the privilege of policing for some profit
But thanks to Reaganomics, prisons turned to profits
Cuz free labor is the cornerstone of US economics
Cuz slavery was abolished, unless you are in prison
You think I am bullshitting, then read the 13th Amendment
Involuntary servitude and slavery it prohibits
That's why they're giving drug offenders time in double digits

Ronald Reagan was an actor, not at all a factor
Just an employee of the country's real masters
Just like the Bush's, Clinton and Obama
Just another talking head telling lies on teleprompters
If you don't believe the theory, then argue with this logic
Why did Reagan and Obama both go after Qaddafi?
We invaded sovereign soil, going after oil
Taking countries is a hobby paid for by the oil lobby
Same as in Iraq, and Afghanistan
And Ahmadinejad said they're coming for Iran
They only love the rich, and how they loathe the poor
If I say any more they might be at my door
(Shh..) Who the fuck is that staring in my window
Doing that surveillance on Mr. Michael Render
I'm dropping off the grid before they pump the lead
I leave you with four words, I'm glad Reagan's dead"

"Reagan" by Killer Mike...one of the few rappers that openly call themselves "libertarian".
