Energy Revisited (A Hip Hop Ode To Pulse & Orlando)


by Amiri Rasul

Dedicated to the lives lost in the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL. I hope you all like it. Pardon the quality but I couldn’t wait to get to a studio. I’m too hurt. I’m too angry. Download below.

Lyrics:

I got enemies
got a lot of enemies
people say they love me
they just waiting for the end of me
try to take away from a negus
fuck with the kid and pray for negus

you aint faggot you king
you aint dyking you queen
anybody speak against you
stick a dick in between
yeah im up in this bitch
yeah I’m mad as a muthafucka
don’t let me live my truth
rather me live it undercover
under other for race cuz I can’t be black
homosexuality is European, fuck is you thinking
maybe you busy hoteping, smoking and drinking
poke you in your third eye cuz it aint blinking
nigga

I got enemies
got a lot of enemies
people say they love you
but they really are your frienimies
try to take away from a negus
fuck with the kid and pray for your negus

I aint here for your leisure
I aint here for your comfort
I aint here for your target practice
im sonning you Mumfords
yeah I walk in my truth
yeah I walk like a man
and the Orisha got me covered
while you scheming to planning
shoot up the movie theater and shoot up a church
just when the wounds was healing its beginning to hurt
shoot at a black man and shoot up a club
when you niggaz gone take the blinders off
enough is enough
yeah we tired of marching
yeah we tired of fighting
sick of burying royalty
tired of crying
holla black lives matter, why we pleading to massa
they’ll only spit in our faces and say fuck you after
we just niggaz to these muthafuckas
baby believe it
you keep waiting for a rainbow
but we don’t see it
its 2016 and we still aint free
but you got high hopes for it
nigga we gone see

I got enemies
got a lot of enemies
people say they love me
they just waiting for the end of me
try to take away from a negus
fuck with the kid and pray for negus

IZM don’t ever tell nobody you gay
especially cuz you rapping, they wont fuck with you anyway
and I figured that I’d listen, keep the shit to myself
but when your people getting massacred how much do it help?

I got enemies
got a lot of enemies
killing all my people
drain the remainder of energy
try to take away from the negus
fuck with the kid and pray for your negus

light a candle for Edward
light a candle for Stanley
light a candle for Omar
light a candle for Juan and Chris
they were on a date night
a candle for Eric
light a candle for Peter
light a candle for Luis
light a candle for Kim
light a candle for Eddie
mommy I love you, in club they shooting
light a candle for Mercedez
and one for Amanda
a candle for Xavier
a candle for Gil
light a candle for Enrique
a candle Shane
JanFam forever
light a candle for Simon
light a candle for Oscar
light a candle for Enrique
a candle for Javier
a candle for Jason
light a candle for all of you
we love you forever
