The Cotton Book: Four Ways Ancestral Style (Lost Pages)

i seen another cuhz drop
on Swahili i gotta touch him through our Branchez
make that phone call in a few hours
we dodging death attempts in advance in tha physical
increasing our batting average cause we got hitz tah deliver plus
we got kids with mathematical problems on they mindsets
and we gon solve em before their summary equates tah cero
colored people be acting funny like Malcolm X speeched so i treat em like characters inside they addictive favorite movies and sitcoms
and average a percentage of their cotton payment of cut bills or digits with Lean Six Sigma tactic as a customer into my non-profit scholarship account
pay they kids back with the same cotton they deny em with
that's what im talking bout on the real while listening tah their excuses of lies which bloom high
and they ain't knowing at my altar we be four ways appreciative keeping Ancestral Souls in my chest
moving wid more heart than before entrapping positivity spiritually evolving is how I spiritually sentence me in planned eras throughout reality
immah positively Vodun cursed vet
a relentless indigenous talisman
written typed spoken actioned just like my true Elders told me i had to do like a G suppose tah
guarding my goals carefully like tha mighty Maritimes taught me
you can't fade me is that raw strength tah tha hollow heads fed tah tha fullest fore our strong Tupac served
and i knew that strength tah be realer when i was rerisen on that board seen myself on the back of that ambulance after humanly dead on arrival
so busta we ain't no kin
and most of us ain't smiling cause we ain't in that mood
we ain't never had no Trust Fund before fool
