But where I’m from ain't where Im at
Now the time has come to give the power
Back to the people
Back to the people
Back to the people
Back to the people

from Mr. J. Medeiros – Brutus Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You may have used me before, taken from me before, manipulated me before- that may be what you know me as, it may be what I once was, but not anymore

For all of those people in the same position, it’s time to take that power/control back- for ourselves

Basically, this song is about fighting yourself to be smart/strong enough to fight the power outside of yourself which seeks to manipulate you only for their own good

Its a song about independence in thought, freedom of will- not only as an individual but when those individuals become a collective
