  • the remedy
  • Common featuring q-tip
  • Yo, we all got different things that we got to deal with. we always are
  • Trying
  • To put the blame on something else rather than sometimes looking at
  • Ourselves, recognizing a lot of the stuff that happens, sometimes it has to do
  • With other things...but if we look within ourselves, we could prevent a lot of
  • This nonsense sometimes, y'know. it's about
  • Relating back to the essence y'know what i'm sayin', where it all stems from.
  • I'm-a do my
  • Thing over this drum, like a native tongue.
  • Verse one q-tip:
  • Do what you will, if you feel that your steeze is real
  • Complicated with the skills over reel to reel
  • Brown skin is what i feel, my mind and body's appeal
  • Is to the no-frill mills, who hear the beats to chill
  • Constantly, i'm hearing black americans just sneering
  • Looking for a leader who can fill us up with ether
  • Hitting us up with great emotional chat
  • About the fact
  • That the black
  • Is constantly held back
  • Like 50 tracks back in a relay race
  • And the white team's ahead
  • So let's keep up the pace
  • And i be needing something that could feed my logical taste
  • At the end of the race is there a paradise place?
  • Yo, we can't get involved in what the next man is doing
  • Material gain we put too much in persuing
  • "yo duke, i need this dope so we can step to this party"
  • But we can all mardi grati
  • Minus that shit in our body
  • "what that got to do with that"
  • 'cause kid that's the essence,
  • Your physical presence
  • Embodies every lesson
  • You can't run the rolls royce if the engine is busted.
  • Can't even life the knife to cut the mustard.
  • What we need to do first
  • Now listen to this verse
  • Let's concentrate on our spiritual plate.
  • Recognize your existence in this vast blue space
  • From a tiny cloud of blood
  • To the human beings with taste, sight, touch, smell
  • And sound
  • Let's deem it profound!
  • And prioritize this cause it was allah's wish
  • "allah? i'm god"
  • "no i ddon't believe that. that's a mystery"
  • "if god is so good why does shit be happening to me?"
  • There's divinity within
  • Because we come from the divine
  • A force that's not seen but yo we feel it every time
  • When the wind blows, and the earth turns,
  • And the rain drops, and the babies cry
  • And the birds fly, and the grounds quake,
  • And the stars gleam, yo
  • So many things are evidence of its existence
  • What we need to do is link it with persistence,
  • Hear me out, yo
  • Once we recognize that, we can move ahead
  • Native tongues, common sense yo he's hip-hop bred...
  • Common:
  • From the spiritual world my former life has developed
  • First person i lost close to me was stella
  • Some of my mellows
  • Lost their mothers and their brothers
  • For them i feel empathy
  • But i ain't pouring out *****in' hennessee
  • I pour my heart out when i see dot out on the deck
  • Knowing two weeks ago he slapped-boxed with death
  • I hear of niggas dying in the wind and on the news
  • But when it's somebody you know it hits you
  • And emotions get bruised
  • I ain't been in your shoes,
  • I won't judge you for knocking
  • Because the spirit of the ghetto says "you gotta!"
  • They snatch you again from rock flippin'
  • Give back into the neighborhood, you better start kickin'
  • Stickin' stores
  • On the strip
  • I'm tired of arabs giving me my change back
  • Devil bomb my yesterday
  • My tomorrow he never gave back
  • I lay back, looking at the ceiling
  • Wondering what can i do
  • So my homie won't have to be dealing
  • Not cause you serving and i'm rapping i'm better
  • Just different pieces to the puzzle of black life
  • That we gotta put together, to better ourselves
  • Cause families we gotta raise
  • No matter how long the money
  • Shorter become the days
  • Men become like women
  • And no difference in the season
  • If you got popped five times
  • You breathing for a reason
  • Let's put this five, ten year come-up plan in progression
  • Before we count our papers
  • Count our blessings
