lyrics

HOOK

Wait a minute
Wait a minute

Wait a minute
Wait a minute

Life hard as a nigga
Life hard as a nigga

             VERSE 1

Pull up to the sto'

Enter building with my hands up
cause they think I want some money out the drawer

Reaching in my pocket for a dollar I don't want to steal I wanna buy a swisher

But...they gon' think I'm reaching for a pistol

               BRIDGE

Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot
Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot
Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot

Put your hand behind ya head we choke him out until he dead black body on the flo'

                HOOK

Wait a minute
Wait a minute

Wait a minute
Wait a minute

Life hard as a nigga
Life hard as a nigga

              VERSE 2


Walking down the street

Walking down the middle of the street

I guess that was too bad

I deserve bullets in my head

I deserve bullets in the chest

I'm a black kid I'm a threat

I had a messed up the whole time

I'm the dark nigga and godzilla

                 BRIDGE

Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot
Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot

No walking in the street, sidewalks, cause you can get hit by a car

But they didn't mention walking in the street could get our children shot by a cop

                 VERSE 3

I'm on the corner selling
cigarettes my name is Eric
I don't even own any weapon
Why you showing this aggression?
Everybody here can tell ya
I'm a peaceful person never
Have I ever been a terror
To my neck applying pressure

Sir you're choking me to death

All these cops are stomping me I die from every step

I'm exhausted all my fight I don't have any left

Suffocating I can't make it losing all my breathe

Michael Brown and Eric Garner Bobby Sessions next

It has been so many cases easy to forget

Do anybody else remember Jena 6?

Do anybody else remember getting lynched?

Do anybody else remember getting whipped?

Do anybody even really give a shit?

Do anybody member' Jasper Texas James Byrd drugged in the street rope tugg 2 years after 1996?

         BRIDGE

Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up...don't shoot, don't shoot
Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up... don't shoot, don't shoot
Hands up, don't shoot
Hands up... don't shoot, don't shoot

You better learn ya history before you history and study all habits of your enemies.
