A Twist of Lime #4: Grand Fury

 

Oddball Magazine is proud to welcome our friends at JP Lime Productions and introduce the hard hitting and well crafted talents of the JP Lime crew. We hope that bringing JP Lime to our readers and fan base will not only enlighten and entertain but also inform on the latest hip hop entertainment news.

Expect JP Lime to share with Oddball readers more track lyrics, as many of their songs tend to be rooted in poetry. This week’s Twist of Lime is a call for action by Scholar.

 

Police BrutalityGrand Fury

Can we take a moment of silence to reflect?

…Pray, grieve, rest…

On those who could not breathe and whose last breath…

…Choke, gasp, death…
Were taken way too soon…
And systemically were doomed…
Can we take another moment to dissect?
…Hands, up, shots…
All the forces in play that led to conflicts…
…Race, class, cops…
Where Law Enforcement must enforce…
The status quo by using force…
Let’s take a moment to outright reject…
…Serve And Protect…
That officers treat us as citizens…
…We’re not Privileged…
And no, there are no bigger cowards…
Than cops who abuse their power…
Can we take another moment to undress?
…Strip, tear, down…
The fallacy of All created equally…
…White, Black, Brown…
Are we not more prone to die?
Or live much more stressful lives?
Now let’s take a few more moments to protest…
…Rise, up, march!
This Injustice and force Our Nation’s interests…
…Petition, vote, bark!
To realize that our lives…
No longer will be qualified…
By our skin or by our numbers of arrests…
…Since birth set up to lose…
We all deserve a shot at happiness…
!SO DAMN THE BOYS IN BLUE!
We know it’s dangerous and cold…
But we tried Peace and still were told…
That when we’re killed it’s justifiable…
…We Matter Less…
But we’re sick of all these untried homicides…
…Innocence presumed…
How many unarmed black men need to die?
…At the hands of these goons…
As criminal as crime can be…
Corruption by the Grand Jury…
It all results in public Grand Fury…
…Fight Breeds Hope…
These moments watershed ’cause we shed tears…
…New…Jim…Crow…
And Lady Liberty now lives in fear…
…’Cause she knows…
That our Rights are violated…
And that we’ll no longer take it…
Thus we’re seizing all these moments, that’s our creed!
…Though we may bleed and choke…
‘Cause no longer will you push or murder me!
!We’re pushing back, revolt!
Our Unity is STRONG!
With All our Brother we will Bond!
‘Cause Every Race is Every Man, we stand as ONE!
…Home…Brave…Free…
