Hiphopproof, No Body Goofed Telling The Truth - Poem by Cornell 'RappinGrandaddy' Harris aka 'RG' Poetry

HipHopProof, No body goofed telling the truth
Parents must connect with youth!
It’s not Planned Parenthood, It‘s all good
Hip is old school. Hop is a learning tool. Proof is the golden rule.

J.B.’s “Say it loud, I‘m black and I‘m proud” was tight
Adding momentum to our struggle in spite of our plight
R. Kelly’s “I believe I can fly” encouraged us to try
Music was sent to m-a-k-e, make us
Foolish speaking will surely b-r-a-k-e, brake us

HipHopProof, No body goofed telling the truth
Parents must connect with youth!
It’s not Planned Parenthood, It‘s all good
Hip is survival. Hop is revival. Proof is the bible.

We talking survival. It’s going to take the bible.
Parents, teachers, and preachers, Come down out of those bleachers
Down on the training field, You got to get real
You know the deal! Every body’s got to yield!

HipHopProof, No body goofed telling the truth
Parents must connect with youth
It’s not Planned Parenthood, It‘s all good
Hip is imagination. Hop is emancipation. Proof is regeneration.

They’re jumping much up in the church.
Where the people meet, It’s the same beat
The culture isn’t wrong, neither is the song
However, for God’s voice to be heard, we must do his word.

HipHopProof, No body goofed telling the truth
Parents must connect with youth
It’s not Planned Parenthood, It‘s all good
Hip is dream in me. Hop is purpose I see. Proof is destiny.

Stop calling names and laying the blame. Our youth are not the problem
We have them. When we unite, U-N-I-Tie will solve them.
Take a long look. Read the good book.
Rise up dreaming and they won’t go around the hood scheming.

HipHopProof, No body goofed telling the truth
Parents connecting with youth
It’s not Planned Parenthood, It‘s all good
Hip is U dream it. Hop is U esteem it. Proof is U mean it.
