Every Friday, MHI highlights police brutality & other police crimes on Twitter. It was only a matter of time before one of the blogger's favorite "Fuck the police" anthems were highlighted on the blog, too: Clap by Pharaohe Monch. Keep reading for the powerful lyrics of the 3rd verse.
Song: Clap (One Day)
Artist: Pharoahe Monch f/ DJ Boogie Blind, Showtyme
Album: W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)
No respect, no manners
It's Mad Max with multiple macs, mad banana clips
A black hammer that hits the back of a black talon
A slew of hollow tips through the wall of your blue silence
and selective theatrics, collective dramatics
I'm systematically pissed, clap automatics
for Mumia Abu Jamal, maybe I'm Crispus Attucks
Peaceful fanatic for peace, but you angered the pacifist
The Gospel, I...
spit it like Jesus of Nazareth
and then emphatically clap! ...at any obstacle
An impossible feat, to fathom is not logical
But chronicle the thoughts of the people cause one day we gon' CLAP!
