“We not gone stop. Hip-hop is young. We still growing. We not falling for that tricknology the public puts out there now.
Before it was the American Dream. ‘Pull yourself up by your bootstraps. You can make it in America’ – all these lies that America told us our whole life. And then when we start getting it, they try to lock us out of it. They start inventing words like ‘capitalist’ and things like that. “We’ve been called niggass and monkeys and shit. I don’t care what words y’all come up with. Y’all gotta come with stronger words. We're not gonna stop. We're not gonna be tricked out of our position. Ya'll locked us out, ya'll created a system that doesn't include us. Fine. We went our alternative route, we made this music, we did our thing. You know, we hustled, we fucking killed ourselves to get to this space and now it’s like, ‘eat the rich.’ Man, we’re not stopping.”
For a nigga that compares himself to Fred Hampton and other black revolutionaries, he obviously has never read what they said, never watched their speeches or interviews. Never even watched the fucking Daniel Kaluuya movie, but they would absolutely HATE Jay Z.
