Song lyrics:

[Louis Farrakhan]
And out of the mercy of Allah and the law written in our nature
We call an individual existence, and when that individual comes
I make no apologies for what Im about to do

[Jay Z]
Im Americas worst nightmare
Im young, black, and holding my nuts like yea!
While yall was at the pub, havin a light beer
I was at the club, havin a fight there
Yall can go home, husband and wife there
My momma at work tryin to buy me the right gear
Nine years old uncle lost his life here
I grew up thinkin life aint fair
How can I get a real job, china white right there
Right in front of my sight like here, yea
Theres ya ticket out the ghetto take flight right here

Tell on me you go bye-bye here, damn
Theres a different set of rules we abide by here
You need a gun, n***as might drive by here
Yall havin fun, racin all ya hot-rods there
Downloadin all our music on ya iPods there
Im Chuck-D, standin in the crosshairs here
Yall straight, chicks got horse hair here
Yall aint gotta be in fear of yall bosses there
You lose your job, your pop rich, yall dont care
So I dont care, yall acting like yall dont hear
All the screams from the ghetto, or the teens ducking metal here
So they steam like a kettle here
Trying to take they mind to a whole different level here
Yea, we real close to devil here
Got to be a better way somebody call a reverend here
My little cuz never got to see his seventh year
And Im so used to pain, that I aint even shed a tear
