  • clapping, barking, and somebody yells "Yo whassup??!"*

    [Lawrence Krisna Parker]
    One two
    Rap music, what does it mean
    What is everybody in this industry for
    What is everybody, buying rap for
    Why do people get involved, in rap music
    Rap music number one, is the voice of black people, number one
    Number two, it's the LAST voice, of black people
    Black people have created every music you hear out here in the streets today
    Every single music, rock and roll down
    Therefore; in a situation that has, all African music in it
    All African music, uhh, exploiting itself of it, or coming out of it
    All African influence in all it's music
    And you have what is called American Music Awards
    You have what is called theft
    And what I would like to bring out today is rap music
    as, a revolutionary tool in changing the structure of racist america
