This track is off his new mixtape, On the Road to Glory, My Story. If you are not familiar with this MC, please check this out. This is the type of passion, lyrics, and message that makes him so unique and talented…..He’s a Beast.
This record ain’t meant for rappers, this ain’t for strippin usage, this ain’t for pistol clappin, this ain’t typical music, The radio rejects it, they trying to diffuse it, Lupe told me to take Rick Ross label, I refused it, We feeding our children poison, we killin off our future, Arabs on every corner, they only here to juke us, 2-0-1-2’s to warn us, I think they trying to spook us, they forcing Gucci Mane on us to keep us in a stooper, God have His grace upon us, His miracles are super, His mercy is enormous, commandments ain’t the loosest, the globe is getting warmer, the government rebuked us, the price of gold is rising, the U.S. fucking useless, unemployment lines is longer, the plan is not to school us, wisdom’s served more than diamonds, so pray for your medulla, besides the kids are dying, it’s nothing left to do but, I take it my assignment, Jesus come and scoop us
C.O.B. is joined by YAOWA for Hip Hop Weekly 11 (Reloaded). These 2 SHOULD be on all these “lists” out there!!!

Cars with police radars on highways boppin, bullpin therapy cell block dodging, pissy stairways missed them days not when they shut down the stores when I’m shopping, used to be pop locking, train hopping, face covered in stocking, 6 pack Bud drinking gambler, fuck them cameras in front of the man, sing the hustlers mantra, hands of luck, more hits than gambling huff, I hollered Indosia, 40 belows covered the toes I was a soldier with the Popeyes sippin Amota. Nigga honestly I call this a culture my…sister’s a snake, my brother’s a vulture my mother’s the block my father’s a ghetto piranha swimming with sharks….

As much as I want to see a new Blackstar album… Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Joell Ortiz should get together and make an album titled: “Brooklyn Galaxy”
