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
