Streets too loud to ever hear freedom ring

from Yasiin Bey – Mathematics Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The phrase “let freedom ring” is a quote from “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”, quoted to great rhetorical effect by Martin Luther King in his “I Have A Dream” speech. Here Mos flips it ironically — the peal of freedom can’t be heard over the din and oppression of ghetto life.
