Regardless who you vote for
If the mind don't grow
And the poverty line don’t go
But the dope keep coming
And the tv keep flashing images of a sports car
Then you bound for a coke war
It’s like Immortal Technique says in 3rd World:
And they might even have a black president, but he’s useless/ ‘cause he does not control the economy, stupid!"
Or like Jay-Z says in “Pray,” off the American Gangster album:
Anywhere there’s oppression
The drug profession flourishes, refreshing
As long as there are people struggling, there will be an underground drug economy. That’s the same anywhere. And as long as those who are struggling are convinced they need to have some $80,000 whip, they’re going to do what needs to be done to get it. That’s how coke wars start, according to Jay
Also alludes to the fact that the politicians we vote for don’t really control things. We just think they do. Examples can be taken from the financial bailout where congress first voted against it, then we recalled about 8 days later to re-vote and it passed.
Special interest groups really are the people in control over our resources, but we just blame the folks that we voted for ie, Obama, Bush, etc.. They don’t control shit
