    Lyrics:
    [Intro]

    They say you gotta work 10x harder
    Be 10x smarter
    10x better
    Just to have half a chance
    Cause I’m black
    But I know who I am
    De Marcus Rashad

    [Verse 1 - De Marcus Rashad]

    Is it because I am Black
    Cause I am free
    That you love murdering me
    Is it because your afraid
    We use to be slaves
    and now we are modern day kings
    Is it because we’ve survived
    Your genocide
    You show you hate us inside
    wondering how could we, Why?
    Fearing we’ll rise
    Cause we’re the children of gods
    No need in hiding the truth
    Cause we all know
    it is no secret to us
    You’d whether see us enslaved or see us encaged
    Thats why you lock us in cuffs
    One thing I know it is burning me up
    you leaving us dead in the streets
    It could be me
    Murdered for living while black
    Thats why I scream fuck the police

    [Hook]

    Is it my strength?
    Is it my stride?
    Why are you scared
    Scared for your life?
    Are you afraid
    that we may find out the truth?
    Afraid for our lives
    Seems we don’t have much too lose….
    Cause a nigga too black!
    Is it cause a nigga too black?
    Is it cause a nigga too black?
    Is it cause a nigga too black?

    [Verse 2 - K Harris]

    Black on black
    Like Fred Hampton and Huey P
    You spent a lot for that Louie V
    Now who was he?
    Do u know of the name u representing?
    Or do you not ask questions before spending?
    You ball hard but came from humble beginnings
    Got everything you ever wanted now you think you’re winning
    You lust, sinning and love believing that your good
    Came up a lil bit now you shitting on ya hood
    Can’t tell the difference between wants and needs
    So you buy everything you see
    Enticed by your greed
    It’s the life indeed
    but does it keep your sanity
    Insane buying chains exploiting your own vanity
    Staying strapped prepared for any altercation
    No contemplating
    Use it without a thought of hesitation
    And if you gotta give dat chain you
    Will die for them materials obtained bruh

    [Hook]

    Is it my strength?
    Is it my stride?
    Why are you scared
    Scared for your life?
    Are you afraid
    that we may find out the truth?
    Afraid for our lives
    Seems we don’t have much too lose….
    Cause a nigga too black!
    Is it cause a nigga too black?
    Is it cause a nigga too black?
    Is it cause a nigga too black?

    [Verse 3 - Pope Adrian Bless]

    Joe Clemmons, my nigga
    How you feelin, bull?.
    Emmitt Tilt-A-Whirl riding in this carnival
    Ferris wheel and deal with death
    Merry go round
    Here’s a round clip of old films that we shooting now
    Tell me why the cage bird sings in a hollow verse
    How to kill a mockingbird sound when I see a hearse
    Jim Crow tryna pigeon toe tapping at my doe (door)
    Napping underneath The railroads
    Til our bodies hurts
    Catch me in the crossfire
    Triple K (KKK) tire swings singing on the poplar (tree)
    Tree of life planted as the bell tolls
    Shawn Michaels kick the whole bullet as he drops
    Cop killing stick to ribs like Velcro
    Scared for Taheem and (st) Taaliyah
    It’s a scary thing
    Bury me alive
    Cherish me until I’m bleached out
    Looking for a scary scene
    Tell my brothers reach out
    God gave us everything
    Hatred got us leeched out
