Why Remix Lyrics
Anthony Hamilton: intro
all that i've been givin
is this pain that i been livin
that got me in the system
why they gotta do me like that
Why is garbage music selling a lot?
Why is the music industry state of mind real far from hip hop?
Why vote republican if u black?
Why build more jails, less schools? cuz we under attack
Why keep the 4-pound in the air?
The revolution will not be televised, get from around here
Why I keep my right fist in the sky?
I let em kno that "We Gon Make It" don't plan our demise
Why u gotta teach ya kids on ya own?
cuz when u get in a zone they bringin u in, u both getting cloned
Why we still gotta pray to Allah?
Cuz hip hop is a new world order n they playin us hard
Why rappers gettin protection?
Why the country aint flip when they jerked the votes the last election?
Why I die for all my beliefs?
I gotta look at my kids, id rather smile than cry when they sleep
Anthony Hamilton: Chorus
why, why that got me struggling
all the brothers locked behind bars
chained up in the system goin crazy
i betta leave my pistol home, why
Why do they say I changed for a girl?
Why you worried about my clothes if my flows gonna change the world?
Why u wait till ur 30 to try to be hard?
Why I gotta have religion if I believe in god?
Why is Bush actin like he trying to get Osama?
Why don't we impeach him and elect Obama?
Why aint Rick James remembered for classic hits?
Why do we remember Rick for smacking a b____?
Why did Ricky Williams retire? They mad in Miami
Why did Justin sell Janet out to go to the Grammy's?
Why u kill on every song?
Why u frown at the screen?
There's so many thrones, why we argue who is the king?
Why it's over for the gangster
Why it's over for bling
Why they hype Britney up? They kno she cant sing
Why a whip and a chain the black American dream?
Why I know it in my heart it remains unseen
Yo 'Kiss they wanna hide from the truth, its ya comrade Nas, right here lets go
Roll or not Blood of a panther
Why is the question, what is the answer?
Got a suggestion here's an example
Why don't we build our own airlines, states, and highways?
Fly to Africa do some trades with Zimbabwe?
Why did Malcom's misson die with the man?
Why aint we pick it up where he left it and carry out his plan?
Why the merger try to exclude L.A Reid?
He brought you usher, outkast, top selling CDs.
Why do half of America got aids?
Why do schools care bout ur sons braids more then they care for his grades?
Why do they hate our white t-shirts and hats turned backwards?
And why is Jesus Christ never played by black actors?
And why aint there an MC that can touch me nor budge me?
And why is the Nas the best thing in rap since Chuck D?
And why this record aint sell 5 million (mill yet)? Jada's as real as it get
Put my money where my mouth is and do something bout this.
Yo by thugs im surrounded
Tell me why is it the money motivates me but the love keeps me grounded?
Why my cases aint get thrown out?
Why team USA keep getting blown out?
Why the democratic party aint getting with me?
Why they still hanging black bodies in Mississippi?
Why did governer McGreevey get caught with a lizard?
And why they take away Shyne's phone calls and visits?
And why I been hot for 7 years?
Why the new M-5 come with 7 gears?
Please tell me why yall keep making that trash
Why they reinstating the draft?
Why is it so much hatin' u have?
Why sell records and keep work?
Why be on stage with the dread with the feet work? s___ is real
Why when a loved one dies u miss them?
Why it took for me to make why for yall to listen?
Chrorus to fade
