Snoop Dogg – Because I'm Black lyrics

Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me what can I do

Right here, right now I do declare
That I’m more than a gangsta man, pimp or a playa
I swear I ain’t never told on nobody
It started in ’82 at a hood house party
Half dead, lil low and my nephew D
Not knowin what we do but this is rtc
Part spark, put in flags in Tucane Park
I leave the house for school but I come back after dark
Feel me?

Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me what can I do

Mo power, mo leadership
Unifying bloods and crips
I used to smoke a pack a day
I used to have to pack a K
Now I got brothers in suits
In my faculte
Pushin peace in the streets
North, south, west and east
Student up a game, yea it’s time to make a change
So I’m following,
No more swine swallowing
Uncle just walk the walk like all righteous men
Try my best to rewrite this plan
A salam aleikum
Aleikum, sir
Yea, that’s the plan

Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me
Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me
Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me what can I do

Yea I’m down with Obama just to add a little drama
And I’m rollin with the nation
But I’ve been doing that
Had a talk with my mama,
Had to let her know that I’mma make a change
And she said baby go ahead and do that
Ferakan is a prophet and I know he doesn’t show it
And he told me so I’m teaching brothers how to be peace
What’s wrong? We too strong
And if we don’t get along
They could never penetrate us
All they do is motivate of haters
