about

When I first made this beat, I immediate thought of Latin America and guerrilla warfare. The lyrics followed from that.

lyrics

(Che Guevara)
Porque es la naturaleza del imperialismo la que bestializa a los hombres...

Verse 1:

Stay concealed, guerrillas in the midst of fighting
We make plans to strike like lightning
Hitting right in the cash purse, the place it hurts worst
Nature's on our side, we ride with the earth's force
Roll into your banks with a shank, because we've got to eat
My people starving, from Pittsburgh up to Harlem
And even further, some people needing water
Can you imagine that? That's why I start my battles at the mental level
So I can hunt the devil, down
And put his stinking evil ass into the underground
Imperialists been fearing this
The people come together as one, then we strike back
Yeah it's like that, this is more than just a tight rap
Or fight back, we've got to be aggressors to see successes
These are the lessons, vamonos grab the weapons

(Che Guevara)
Porque es la naturaleza del imperialismo la que bestializa a los hombres...

Verse 2:

Fuck peaceful activism, I have to hit them
It's me against capitalism, attacking the system
And setting all the prisoners free
The position of me is to be enemy of the state
So remember me as great, Sun cease the day
Martyr, suicide bomber blowing lies away
George W Bush is evil the sequel
You fake people I see through like a peephole
To what's on the other side, your best bet to run and hide
'Cause once the Sun collide with mics I'm leaving none alive
And there ain't who none who lied to the greatest mind
Waste of time, won't survive the wrath of the sun splash
Months pass and time flies, with the future rhyme styles
Flying cows, tornadoes, natural disasters
And after this passes, you punk asses want to play cool
But this ain't Playskool, I'm higher learning
The desire burning deep inside, keep the heat alive

(Che Guevara)
Porque es la naturaleza del imperialismo la que bestializa a los hombres...

Verse 3:

No longer shall we be enslaved, I see the day
That we can say we are free, and that's the goal
Raps are cool, but I'm talking about some real shit
Sometimes you've got to kill shit before you can rebuild shit
Yo feel this, grab a weapon because it's time for war
The majority of the world is starving and poor
That means a few rich motherfuckers are owning the shit
Now what's that make you want to do with loaded clips?

(Che Guevara)
Porque es la naturaleza del imperialismo la que bestializa a los hombres...
