Brother Ali – Uncle Sam Goddamn

Brother Ali, das Rap-Wunder des mitt­le­ren Westens. Dem 25-Jährigen gehört auch eine der ori­gi­nells­ten Stimmen des gesam­ten HipHop. Seine Predigten sind unbe­quem und sei­ne Wahrheiten auf­rüt­telnd.

„Brother Ali has been under pres­su­re from the record­ing indus­try due to lyrics from his song „Uncle Sam Goddamn”, clai­ming crea­ti­ve inter­fe­rence from „some­bo­dy I don’t wan­na name, but some of you pro­bab­ly has their cell pho­nes.” The unnamed cor­po­ra­ti­on ulti­mate­ly with­drew its spon­sor­ship of Ali, causing him to trun­ca­te parts of his 2007 tour. Furthermore, on the song „Second Time Around” with Benzi and Wale, Ali makes refe­ren­ces to being kicked off a tour fol­lo­wed by the line „Verizon dis­sed me too, cuz I was too poli­ti­cal.” The song is nota­b­ly cri­ti­cal of the United States government, with accu­sa­ti­ons that the poli­ti­cal sys­tem is addic­ted to war.” - Wikipedia

Liedtext:

Ah,
The name of this song is uncle sam god­damn
It’s a show tune but the show ain’t been writ­ten for it yet.
We’re gon­na see if tony Jerome and the band
can may­be work this shit out for me
And strai­gh­ten me out right quick
I like it so far man

Come on, let’s go

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grand impe­ri­al guard whe­re
the dol­lar is sac­red and proud

Let’s do this shit for real, come on now

Smoke and mir­rors, stri­pes and stars
Stollen for the cross in the name of God
Bloodshed, gen­o­ci­de, rape and fraud
Written to the pages of the law, good lord

The cold con­ti­nent latch key child
Ran away one day and star­ted acting foul
King of whe­re the wild things are, daddy’s proud
Cause the roman empi­re done pas­sed it down

Imported and tor­tu­red the work force
They never hea­led the wounds or shook the cur­se off
Now the grown up Goliath nati­on
Holdin open audi­tions for the part of David, can you feel?

Nothing can save you, you ques­ti­on the rain
You get rus­hed in and chai­ned up
fists rai­sed but I must be insa­ne
Cause I can’t figu­re a sin­gle god­damn way to chan­ge it

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red and power is God

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red and power is God

All must bow to the fat and lazy
The fuck you obey me and
why do they hate me, who me?
Only two gene­ra­ti­ons away from
the Worlds most despi­ca­ble slavery tra­de

Pioneered so many ways to degra­de a human being
That it can’t be chan­ged to this day
Legacy so ing­rai­ned in the way that we think
We don’t only need chains to be slaves

Lord it’s a shame­ful dis­play
The over­seers even got raped along the way
Cause the child­ren can’t escape from the pain
And they’re born with the pores
and this hat­red in their veins

Try and sepa­ra­te a man from his soul
You’ll only streng­t­hen him and lose your own
Well shoot that fucker if he walk near the thro­ne
Remind him that this is my home (now i’m gone)

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red and power is god

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red

Hold up, gim­me one right here, hold up

You don’t give money to the bums
On the cor­ner with a sign, blee­ding from their gums
Talking much, you don’t sup­port a crackhead
What you think hap­pens to the money from yo’ taxes

Shit the governments an addict
With a bil­li­on dol­lar a week kill brown peop­le habit
And even if you ain’t on the front line
When the mas­ter yell crunch time you right back at it

You ain’t look at how you hust­ling back­wards
And the end of the year add up what they sub­trac­ted
3 out­ta twel­ve mon­ths your sala­ry
Paid for that mad­ness, man that’s sad­ness

What’s left get a big ass plas­ma
To see whe­re they made Dan Rather point the damn came­ra
Only appro­ved ques­ti­ons get ans­we­red
Now stand your ass up for that natio­nal anthem

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red and power is God

Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant impe­ri­al guard whe­re the dol­lar is sac­red and power is God
