Bling Bling Bling

by 1st Poet

Caught up in the material things willing to die to get the green
who's really behind the conspiracy 
splashing all these images before our people?
Letting other cultures bank roll that company
while you pimp your people trying to make that quota
Bling Bling Bling
The phone rings how many young lives have you desroyed today
Have you written your bloody check to the NAACP?
Snap that picture and grin for the media 
faking like your down and care about our people
When was the last time you been to the communities
Sat down with these young people and listen to what they had to say
Sitting in your comfortable office in that nice plush leather chair
Thinking of all sorts of gimmicks to get that green 
Bling Bling Bling
You got the latest things selling your $200.00 sneakers 
and jersey's to the poor urban communities
Opps! maybe you was trying to capitalize 
on your investment to young drug dealers
Dah you fool these kids look up to you 
they want everything they see you with
They are willing to kill each other to get it
Wait till the violence hit your family 
Bling Bling Bling
