Fallen Sons

about

I was challenged by my DMV brovas DJ Face [IG @djfacemusic] and Black Classic [IG @ag_hammer] to #BeMoreCivil and speak out against police brutality. When you have the opportunity to say something, say something. That's my job as an MC and a lover of the culture!

The #BeMoreCivil campaign challenges all artists to write a verse, song or poem about stopping police brutality, to post your song or video on all social media and to tag all other artists you know. Videos don't have to be professionally done. They can be done on your phone. Once tagged you have 48 hours to finish. There's power in numbers so let's all do our part!

lyrics

In 2014 kids getting shot in broad day
Its by the ones that protect and serve or so they say
You can even get capped if you look at them the wrong way
Its a blood sport but you know I ain't the one to play
They using excessive force cause they say they feel threatened
But what if you got your hands up without a weapon
If that's protection I can really do without it
Its time for action don't make me have to scream and shout it
No justice no peace is what we saying in the streets
Men get shot by police and they don't even got a piece
All we want is a piece and some relief from the beast
Some relief from the heat, crying tears from the grief
Fallen sons being put six feet beneath the earth
Without realizing their true worth
Lives being cut short yes that's the true curse
Feel the pain inside my soul cause yes the truth hurts
We got to do work, we got to get better
Progress can't be made if we're separate forever
We're tougher than leather, we got to stand strong
Fists up to all my people in Ferguson
RIP to Trayvon, Garner and Diallo
And to countless others that get lost in the shadows
There's a war going on outside we ain't safe
We all got a problem starring us right in the face
No justice no peace is what we saying in the streets
Men get shot by police and they don't even got a piece
All we want is a piece and some relief from the beast
Some relief from the heat, crying tears from the grief
Fallen sons being put six feet beneath the earth
Without realizing their true worth
Lives being cut short yes that's the true curse
Feel the pain inside my soul cause yes the truth hurts
