(Verse 1-Novel) I am, reverends' future black president. I'm what you see rollin' every day through your resident Windows tinted, young and relentless To the cops, I'm a suspect that fits the description But I am, not a hoodlum, I'm not an abuser I'm sort of a connoisseur slash entrepreneur. I've seen a lot of people grow, some went, some came Rappers are next-generation shit but I am change. At the age of 21 they said I'd be non-existent, It's that, or pleading the trial or being convicted. I guess since I'm alive then I beat the statistics Y'all can all kiss my ass when I am rich. I'm the sun, I'm light, I'm much more than your bling or the shine off your ice I'm as, free as a spirit, I'm as fly as a bird I'm whatever I wanna be as long as I am heard Cause I am... (Chorus) I am I am I am Eternal to the light I am I am I'm a product of the ghetto, my father's boy, A brother to my sister, my mother's pride and joy, I am I am I am I am The king of all knights I am I am I'm the blade of the knife, that slaughtered the lamb The greatest sacrifice, the son of Abraham (Verse 2-Talib Kweli) I am C-E-O, H-N-I-C B-K-M-C, Talib Kweli My name roll off the tongue like L-M-N-O-P See I am at touch, you can IM me. I'm not nobody's toy, I'm not nobody's boy I am someone's man, I am someone's joy I am the voice, I am the truth I am the choice, I am the proof. Like my man from the D Gon' stand on my feet I am the branch, from the family tree A baby to the leaves, carriers of the seeds To carry on the name, to make a man complete. De La Soul said I am a beat I'm not a dream, I'm not a fantasy Right here in the flesh, I am out of this world, I am something else I am something lived, I am something felt. (repeat chorus) Thanks to Kevin H. for the lyrics and for introducing the song to me! I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it, and I couldn't find it anywhere on YouTube. So I decided to post it myself, and add it to my favorites/playlist so I could get a faster access to it. I know it's not my usual "thing", but I couldn't help it. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do!
