Brand Nubian "Hold On" (1994)
"Young black male, twenty-five years of age
Many-a-lives didn't survive to this stage
Cause the rage of another brother got him popped
Shot him and he dropped, like a beanbag
Mean m*******er with a rag and some jeans that sag
They signify your death by crossin out your tag
Then they go and brag that they took another life
Never to think, do a brother got a mother and a wife?
Trife when a ni**a do the work of the Klan
That's what you're doin when you ruin the life of a black man"
Lord Jamar´s verses
