Lord Jamar Interview (prod. DJ Kemo)

from by Shai Mate



Lord Jamar Sample:

White rappers your coming to this almost as a guest okay
Matter fact you are a guests in the house of hip hop

Shai Mate:

So many homies think they get it but they dont
That the door is open to em theyll be let in but they wont
People think that they know how to do it
Intrusive intellect make black music
In its essence remember that rap musics for the have nots
Not for the hipsters puffing on earb and have alot
For the crack spots and homies hustling to get this money
Who stack guap for the fuck of it and never running
From insecure humans always tryna threaten
Their integrity with weapons and it teach em a lesson whenever
They leave the house when the fortunate are seeking out
An easy route break the patterns that we speak about
By being one example of a white boy
Who understands he's a guest in the house
With the right noise
To be let in the house
Fill the right void
Its a test if your style communicates the true agenda of a culture
That feeds off being real like a vulture
My sole purpose is to clarify and verify
The arrogance when I look up high and stare at life
I realize theres no other way around it
Prove yourself to the brothers that surround it
Sisters fathers and mothers that will doubt it
No credit is given until the cloud spits down on you
And when it rains it pours
Im addicted like a fiend noone can save the boy
Imagine what you want when your taking course
Of action face facts and the pain will pour
Naturally in a way it will get you
Accepted in a way they will let you
In the house cause the key is perspective
So lock out all the teams that neglect it
