"These are the lyrics from my song, History ( I won't give up), from my upcoming album "Look Look Look" (Look3x).

The evil that men do they make moves like voodoo/ sittin' on the sidelines hoping and praying that somebody do you/ Never contemplating that somebody would school you/ Fuse melody rhythm and flow and work wit it like a tool/ You should know by now the oppressed man is not a fool/ Sign of the times evident from Elvis to Eminem don't be cruel/ It's a sham/ a scam /an old boy flim flam No matter how you twist it up I know who I am/ I refuse to be a product of everything you feeding me/ Cause all you makin' available is smoke drank and the illusion of ecstasy/ It's ecstasy when I sit back with my eyes shut tight/ Soarin' through a world full of freedom like shooting stars in the night/ My spirit will not be broken/ my faith will not be shakin'/ Give it how you give it man I won't give up I gots to make it/

Chorus

I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life

It's something bout the way I post up and I walk/ It leaves you flabbergasted tongue tied and you can't talk/ you intimidated by the way miss Missy keep peeping at me/ You wanna put me in a cell with no bail and lock me away for a quarter century/ My first mistake was I didn't stay awake/ I should have paid attention when you fed me the crumbs up off your plate/ Honestly I did not understand/ I was still trying to comprehend the implications of that long trip man/ It was so complex with disrespect that I didn't know what I should feel/ I was a king in my village but now I'm serving you your meals/ That was so devastating and yet is so ironic/ I'm geographically isolated to the point I want to vomit/ But I won't and I don't cause now I'm feeling alright/ You can't comprehend the light/ my eternal sight/ mind so bright/ I'm focused and walking in the light/ And I won't give up/ I won't give up

Chorus

I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life

From my transgressions and indiscretion I've learned many lessons/ A wife children and family are multiple blessings/ History is his story repeated/ I'ma put it down and y'all make show that you read it/ The criminal minded lawyers have control of the switch/ I'm scientifically inclined but to eat I gots to dig a ditch/ I got mandatory witnesses of the these mandatory sentences/ This is genocide as a law and it's mandatory we end this/ How low will you go below yo ego before you know/ If you keep on doin' this to ours we gone end up doin' it to yours/ Where is the rehabilitation in a nation full of accusations?/ Twentyfive wit an L and three strikes is equivalent to strangulation/ My astonishment is for the punishment as a curse upon my people/ The crime plus the time the punishment must be equal/ Mandatory lies/ mandatory lies/ mandatory sentences/ mandatories die/ I won't give up

Chorus

I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life I won't give up on my life I won't give up it's my life"
