NAS


You Can't Stop Us Now Lyrics

[Verse One - Nas]
From Willie Lynch to Willie Hutch, right on!
We Supafly, made Gucci the shit, Louis too, suits and ties,
playa trophies, pray to goldie
Picture wax museums full of black pimps and triple O.G.'s
Aunt Jemima hoes, historic horseshit, girls from long time ago
Stagecoach with the horse kid
Witchdoctors, good ol' pickpockets, sip moonshine
So called coon, shines and darkies
I love y'all
Pyramids to cotton fields to Wrigley Fields
Forgotten men who did get kill
Crispus Attucks the first blasted
Peace to the rich lady purse snatcher shot in the back
I know you're hungry kid
I know they hung your dad, burnt your mama crib
I know that hurt ya bad
Minstrel shows from gold to shackles and back to gold
We act like we home, matter fact we are home
Bad attitudes, octoroon skin tones
Slave food turn to soul food, collards and neckbones
Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag
Bet she had a nigga with her to help her old ass

[Last Poets]
As James Baldwin says, you can only be destroyed by believing that you really are what the white world considers a "nigger"

[Chorus - Eban Thomas]
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now

[Verse Two - Nas]
Yo on Dateline the other night they showed hate crimes
Gave a blood time 'cause he fought with his K9
Beastiality, humane society
Go to China see how they dine, see what they eat
Better yet asks PETA whoever what animal makes suede
If not for suede would you survive the Dark Ages?
Cannibal ways of the anti-caucasians
Slay ya like a steak tartar on pinot noir
David star on the chain, Sammy Davis he helped pave the way for Southern crankers and them Harlem shakers
Now we gettin our papers
They try to censor the words that stop our money comin but you can't escape us, haters

[Chorus - Eban Thomas]
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
