Yea, its been 12 years since Mos Def did this song I figured I'd do a updated version since things have changed alot since '99 Mathematics Twenty Eleven

[Verse 1:Saeed]
One for P-Town two for So Cal three for this country and the people living in the struggle
That are trying to make a living without drug dealing there's one life to live too many second chances
Too many double negatives that don't equal positives bad politics just keep on plottin' tricks
These rappers get big off their radio hits then in a couple years they're broke with all their money spent
They didn't have the skills to last the kids got tired of the same old fuckin' dance
Gas prices on the up oil exchanges's for blood people working hard for years only to get laid off
From a bad economy society mentally powerless my strength excess beyond the limits of averages, extremely expanding
My knowledge and wisdom to break down this whole entire damn system, 8 planets left now Pluto left out off our space
A dwarf that got caught in the circle around the sun
, education affected by all the budget cuts too many classes being cut in the budget
So college classes are overcrowded the average American is already $10,000 in debt and you look in a algebra book and they teach us how to use credit cards just to stay in debt, the American Dream has shrunk to our paycheck they keep us staying broke and we lose all our hope
So we settle for ordinary and stay po' 70% of Americans own a cell phone thats 30% more than Mos said befo'
Addicted to the internet and text messages we gonna forget how to speak each day another language becomes extinct in foreign countries
Future jobs in jeopardy recovering economy young kids can't read by they can rock you in PS3
This new math is whippin' muthafuckers ass you wanna learn how to rhyme you better learn how to add its mathematics

Hook

[Verse 2: Saeed]
Its a universal cycle what goes around comes around so we bound to get whats coming back to us can't run forever man up and face the danger the average minimum wage has gone up 2.85 since 99' what is that gonna do since the cost of living has rise
Significantly from technology people need to keep up just to stay out of poverty when 12% of Americans are on unemployment
You best believe you better head out on the streets to make bread reconnect with your connect head back to the block to sell rocks
Hanging on corner hot spots with more drugs and such just too choose from
You can't make as much from weed can't that shit ain't as illegal as it once used to be step up to exstacy thats horny money
More 16 and pregnant chicks on MTV abortions going up marriages going down so what does that mean? too many people are just screwing around more MC's murdered in the last 10 years and were still not over Biggie and Pac not being here
$14 trillion in debt another debt ceiling hit republicans and democrats still arguing over the same shit, just fix it
Over $900 billion spent on this war what the hell we still killin' for
3 billion Americans live in poverty our own people are struggling and we worry about other countries it ain't funny these number don't got limits it can keep getting worse its all mathematics
