As I memorized the words I genuinely believed every line I heard
I thought that these men that I referred to
Was prophets of our time would never lie in verse
I can't begin to tell you how it hurt
As time went on some of them disguises burst
Growing up, Brother Ali memorized the lyrics of the men (whom to him were like prophets) that he thought were great. When he learned that they didn’t always talk about real stuff, Brother Ali felt hurt.
