SWING SHIFT UK SPECIAL, GALAXY 101, 21/4/98

Some 90s radio nostalgia right here. This was the UK Special edition of the Swing Shift on Galaxy 101, Bristol, aired on Easter Monday, 1998. I co-presented this one with a very bubbly Shola Ama, who was the biggest name on the UK street soul scene at the time. It consists of nothing but R&B and hip-hop tracks by British artists. Part 2 rounds off with a live freestyle session between Kent's Lethal, aka Ill Jargon, and Kelz of Bristol's 3PM Crew.

BLUNTED TO REALITY














The light bulb's on and something's starting to happen
It's tough to comprehend when your belief system shatters
The world's not like we thought it was. Reality's not what it seems
What we've been conditioned to perceive. It's like a dream
But the world is waking up. People are actually starting to notice
And understand that everyone alive's a part of this whole process
Politicians don't run the world, bankers do
The situation's obvious but we never think it through
The BBC, CNN all the daily papers
Just propaganda tools for the real decision-makers
The presidents, prime ministers and chancellors are puppets
And Obama's no different, people. Some say the biggest muppet
They keep up the illusion that we're free and play their role
Spouting what they're told to say as the teleprompter rolls
The New World Order tiptoes on, bankers enslave and rape us
But it's Jordan's tits and Rooney 's fee that makes the front page of the papers

(Ever noticed how everything about society is structured in favour of the corporations, and never the individual? People say 'that's just the way it is.' But when 99 per cent of the human race are being controlled and enslaved by the one per cent, it's time for that 99 per cent to change 'the way it is'. Tax. Just think about that. We all meekly pay it because 'thats just the way it is.' But tax is nothing short of legalised robbery. How the hell did we ever fall for that?)

The biggest scam inflicted on humanity is money
It rules our lives, but it doesn't even exist. It's kinda funny
You'd have to laugh, it's kinda tragic. Figures appear on a screen by magic
And your bank gives you a loan. As you become another drone
But there's no money in their coffers, so it's illusory what they offer
Imaginary credit. Nice work if you can get it
And so the debt goes down the line, with more and more applied
And when the rent gets late, because of what the banks create
They just create more credit. And the public never get it
You're not supposed to win. You're only supposed to lose
And doze and snooze. And doze and snooze

(If all the money lining the pockets of the soulless devils pulling the strings of this world stage day in day out were re-distributed fairly throughout the world, and if governments issued money directly rather than being slaves to these same cartels of private bankers masquerading behind the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, poverty, starvation and squalour could be completely eradicated
Still, don't worry about it. The X Factor's on and, OMG, what is Cheryl wearing??!)

The elephant's in the room and it's shocking what your mind edits
What's been right in front of our eyes our whole lives, but we still don't get it
It's not like the subtle reminders aren't everywhere you look
You got to hand it to the masons, man, they've got their game on lock
Why the depictions of the occult aimed at kids in films from Disney?
Why's a Babylonian goddess featured on the Statue of "Liberty"?
Far too many all-seeing-eyes in the videos of Rihanna
Jay's a puppet too, an Illuminati tool like Lady GaGa
When rastas talk of Babylon, you've got to question what they mean
Because it's more significant than a locked-down mind can glean
The land between two rivers is what we call Iraq today
And it's from here that the plan for world control began to play
But the evidence and artifacts are being destroyed forever
While the cover story tells you that it's all a War on Terror
The Church of Babylon upped its roots and set up shop in Rome
Renamed itself the Catholic Church and drove its doctrines home
Christianity and Islam followed, manipulated mentalities
To keep the masses frightened, meek and blunted to reality
The most effective way to control the masses? Feed them fear of Hell
And that we're all just sheep. And edit whatever else you tell
But if the truth's too inconvenient and guys like me are nutters
Hey, just keep the blinkers on and batten down the shutters

(Does anyone ever stop for a second to question the insanity of war? Let's break it down - you don't agree with me and I don't agree with you, so let's kill each other. That'll make everything OK again! The wholesale slaughter of human life - whether in the armed forces or not - is tolerated on a daily basis because 'war is peace.' Funny thing though. Notice how it's never the sons of presidents and government ministers who go out to get their limbs blown off on the frontline. Wonder why?)

OK, children Gather round and get your bedtime story
With Saddam Hussein as the big bad wolf while the US basks in glory
Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, Henri Paul was drunk
September 11th was planned from a cave and McVeigh was just some punk
President Bush got voted in all good and fair and square
He's really just a regular kind of guy like Tony Blair
Yeah, I know I've lost my mind. I've lost the fucking plot
That's OK. You don't have to listen. You can be happy with your lot
I just saw some stuff on MTV. Hot girls and champs on tap
Now, who needs harsh reality when you can fill your mind with that?
lol

You never get the truth in all the lies the media hands to us
But connect the dots, and it's clear that's nothing's random or by accident
Speed cameras, chips in pets, unfettered immigration
Electromagnetic soups from phones and micro radiation
Doctors paid by Big Pharma to dish out all those pills
If swine flu doesn't get you, damn sure the vaccine will
The zeitgeist's changing rapidly and the elites are getting primed
To dish out everything they got, 'cos they're running out of time
To keep us in a five-sense state, and oblivious to truth
Of who we really are and what we're on our way back to
The awakening is happening, the process is underway
And a higher level of all of us chose to be living here today
To be a part of bringing in the process of mutation
The system can't go on if we change the frequency of vibration
It's time to face the facts that we're actually the last generation
That stands a chance of stopping the move towards a global nation
George Orwell's 1984 is what's waiting for our families
Unless we refuse to co-operate with this agenda of insanity
The few control the many only because we've let it happen
Remove the base from the pyramid and the whole damn structure's flattened

It's on

BLOCK PARTY, THIS THURSDAY NIGHT.


MD joins DJ Bligeness/ MC Master P. Block Party @ The Wheelhouse, Windermere, Cumbria, this Thursday night.

MD'S BALTIC TOUR DIARY, APR '11




































































April's instalment actually begins on Thursday 31st March, as I set off for a three-night DJing tour of the Baltic states. I'm not entirely sure who 6am flights are meant to be convenient for, as it's certainly not the passengers. Ryanair, I guess, as they can secure cheaper airport slots. I sneaked out of the house at 3am, being careful not to wake the Devlin females, and bombed through the night to Stansted. First port of call was actually Skavsta in Sweden. By a quirk of Ryanair's promotional fares, it was actually far cheaper to route to Latvia this way than by going direct. I landed into Riga at 2pm, where I was met by Latvian mash-up kingpin DJ Aiva, and a long hotel nap beckoned.

After dinner with Aiva and Rudd, the other DJ on the bill, we headed to Pulkvedis, a venue I'd played twice before. Pulkvedis apparently means Colonel in Latvian, so I imagine there's been quite a lot of talk of Pulkvedis Gaddafi in the news recently. The venue had filled out nicely by 1am, and my two-hour set was highly enjoyable. I enjoyed a couple of post-DJing beers more than I should have done, as waking to catch my coach for Estonia at 7 proved quite a hardship.

The countryside was still engulfed in snow throughout the four-hour journey North to Tartu, Estonia's second city - although it was considerably milder than on my previous Arctic visit in February. By the evening, Estonia's leading hip-hop DJ Quest and two DJ friends had arrived in from the capital, Tallinn, and we all headed for some colossal-sized food portions at Dolce Vita Italian restaurant.

Like Oxford, Tartu is a big university town, with the nightlife highly reliant on the student population. They were out in full force for the gig at Club Illusion, a former movie theatre that the developers have done a great job of converting into a cutting-edge club. Myself and Quest juggled the set, spinning from up on a stage. Requests ranged from Rihanna, (no! really??) to Mobb Deep.

Quest had a 6.30am train to Tallinn, while my coach back to Riga left at the same time. While he opted for an after-hours hang-out, I was more attracted to squeezing in just less than two hours sleep at the hotel before trudging wearily to the coach station. On the cards was a four-hour haul to Riga, followed by another brutal four to Vilnius, over the border in Lithuania. Friday's coach had on-board wi-fi, which brightened up the journey considerably. No such luxury on Saturday's, so reading and daydreaming out of the window it was.

Lithuanian top dog DJ Mamania met me at Vilnius station. After another afternoon of hotel sleep, we took in an Asian fusion food spot, before heading to G Stars club. This is one of the most distinctive venues I've played, a former nuclear shelter/ bunker, accessed by a claustrophobic low-ceilinged tunnel. Here's a Youtube video I shot of it when it was known as Club Gravity last year:



It's now undergone a refurb, including a relocation of the DJ booth, and is stunningly state-of-the-art. Another top-notch night.

My sleep deprivation and coach hauls weren't quite over. Direct flights to London from Vilnius got dropped last year when the airport's operational charges made it too expensive. The only direct route to Stansted is with Ryanair from Kaunas, Lithuania's second city. I took a morning coach there, and finally headed home. The departures board provided some entertainment as Lithuania has its own variations on UK airport names, so London Gatwick becomes Londonas Getvikas, Birmingham is Birmengemas, and Liverpool is Liverpulis.

JUST BUGGIN' ILLUMINATI SPECIAL!


Just Buggin Illuminati Special (with lyrics) by Mark Devlin
As many are starting to realise, we're living in incredible times, and a mass awakening of human consciousness is underway. The first stage of this is the realisation that the world is not run by the people we've been conditioned all our lives to believe it is. It's a network of occult secret societies who actually control all aspects of human life. And it's finally coming down. It's a complex network, but 'The Illuminati' has come to be adopted as a collective term for the covert controllers.

More than any other genre, the hip-hop world has been paying attention to the revelations, and Illuminati/ New World Order-related lyrics are being infused into tracks by more and more vigilant artists - those that aren't owned by one of the control-system corporations, that is!

So if I'm a nutter, so are a hell of a lot of rappers!

In this special one-off edition of Just Buggin, Mark Devlin presents a carefully vetted selection of tracks whose lyrics address various aspects of the global conspiracy - along with the occasional foray into the nature of reality itself and the false version of history we've been fed, because they're all fundamentally linked. Not your average fluffy family fun then! No Rihanna or Nicki Minaj here. This is music for mature, open-minded grown-ups who aren't afraid to think for themselves.

The lyrics for as many of the tracks as it was possible to find are included below.

So ...blinkers off, X Box down, third eye open - let's go!

JUST BUGGIN' ILLUMINATI SPECIAL - SONG LYRICS


LUPE FIASCO: WORDS I NEVER SAID

It’s so loud Inside my head
With words that I should have said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said
I can’t take back the words I never said

I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip?
9/11 building 7, did they really pull it?
Uhh, And a bunch of other cover-ups
Your child's future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then wait, here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, thats on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
You get it then they move you, so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the f-cks”
Dude is dating so and so, blabbering 'bout such and such
And that aint Jersey Shore, homie, that's the news!
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
That's why I aint vote for him, next one neither
I’m a part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.

Now you can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better, then we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, where's that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam!
And you are not observant
And you are not a muslim
Israel don’t take my side 'cause look how far you’ve pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the kush went
Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
Complain about the gloom but when’d you pick a broom up?
Just listening to 'Pac aint gone make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
If you don’t become an actor you’ll never be a factor
Pills with a million side effects
Take 'em when the pain's felt
Wash them down with Diet soda
Killin off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the World
Would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss a payment
They can take your home away

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this, you're bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through



VINNIE PAZ: END OF DAYS

The greatest form of control is when you think you're free when you're being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. One form of dictatorship is being in a prison cell and you can see the bars and touch them. The other one is sitting in a prison cell but you can't see the bars but you think you're free.

What the human race is suffering from is mass hypnosis. We are being hypnotized by people like this: newsreaders, politicians, teachers, lecturers. We are in a country and in a world that is being run by unbelievably sick people. The chasm between what we're told is going on and what is really going on is absolutely enormous.

It's like we all know what's going down
But no one's saying shit, what happened to the home of the brave?
These motherfuckers they're controlling us now
But no one's talking about it, made us proud to be slaves

And everybody's just walking around
Head in the clouds, we won't awake until we're dead in the grave
By then it's too late, we need to be ready to raise up
Welcome to the end of days

Everybody is a slave, only some are aware
That the government releasing poison in the air
That's the reason I collect so many guns in my lair
I ain't never caught sleeping, never unprepared
Yeah, The Shaytan army, they just break it proudly
George Bush the grandson of Aleister Crowley
They want you to believe the lie that the enemy Saudi
The enemy ain't Saudi, the enemy around me
There's fluoride in the water but nobody know that
It's also a prominent ingredient in Prozac (For real?)
How could any government bestow that?
A proud people who believe in political throwback
That's not all that I'm here to present to you
I know about the black pope in Solomon's Temple
Yeah, about the Vatican assassins and how they will get you
And how they cloned Barack Hussein Obama in a test tube

Whoever built the pyramids had knowledge of electrical power
And you know that that's the information that they suppress and devour
Who you think the motherfuckers that crashed in the tower?
Who you think that made it turn into ash in an hour?
The same ones that invaded Jerome
The ones that never told you about the skeletons on the moon
Yeah, the ones that poison all the food you consume
The ones that never told you about Mount Vesuvius Tomb
The Bird Flu is a lie, the Swine Flu is a lie
Why would that even come as a surprise?
Yeah, the Polio vaccine made you die
It caused cancer and it cost a lot of people their lives
Do y'all know about Bohemian Grove?
How the world leaders sacrificing children in robes?
Lucifer is God in the public school system
I suggest you open up your ears and you listen

The greatest hypnotist on the planet Earth is an oblong box in the corner of the room. It is constantly telling us what to believe is real. If you can persuade people that what they see with their eyes is what there is to see, you've got them. Because they'll laugh in the face of an explanation then which portrays the big picture of what's happening... and they have.

DISPOSABLE HEROES OF HIPHOPRICY: TELEVISION, THE DRUG OF THE NATION

One nation
under God
has turned into
one nation under the influence
of one drug

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

T.V., it
satellite links
our United States of Unconsciousness
Apathetic, therapeutic and extremely addictive
The methadone metronome pumping out
150 channels, 24 hours a day
you can flip through all of them
and still there's nothing worth watching
T.V. is the reason why less than 10 per cent of our
Nation reads books daily
Why most people think Central Amerika
means Kansas
Socialism means unamerican
and Apartheid is a new headache remedy
absorbed in its world it's so hard to find us
It shapes our mind the most
maybe the mother of our Nation
should remind us
that we're sitting too close to...

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

T.V. is
the stomping ground for political candidates
Where bears in the woods
are chased by Grecian Formula'd
bald eagles
T.V. is mechanized politics
remote control over the masses
co-sponsored by environmentally safe gases
watch for the PBS special
It's the perpetuation of the two-party system
where image takes precedence over wisdom
Where soundbite politics are served to
the fast food culture
Where straight teeth in your mouth
are more important than the words
that come out of it
Race baiting is the way to get selected
Willie Horton or
Will he not get elected on...

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

T.V., is it the reflector or the director ?
Does it imitate us
or do we imitate it?

because a child watches 1500 murders before he's
twelve years old and we wonder why we've created
a Jason generation that learns to laugh
rather than to abhor the horror
T.V. is the place where
armchair generals and quarterbacks can
experience first hand
the excitement of warfare
as the theme song is sung in the background
Sugar sweet sitcoms
that leave us with a bad actor taste while
pop stars metamorphosize into soda pop stars
You saw the video
You heard the soundtrack
Well, now go buy the soft drink
Well, the only cola that I support
would be a union C.O.L.A. (Cost Of Living Allowance)
On television

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

Back again, 'New and improved'
We return to our irregularly programmed schedule
hidden cleverly between heavy breasted
beer and car commercials
CNN ESP NABC TNT, but mostly B.S.
Where oxymoronic language like
'virtually spotless', 'fresh frozen'
'light yet filling' and 'military intelligence'
have become standard
T.V. is the place where phrases are redefined
like 'recession' to 'necessary downturn'
'Crude oil' on a beach to 'mousse'
'Civilian death' to 'collateral damages'
and being killed by your own Army
is now called 'friendly fire'
T.V. is the place where the pursuit
of happiness has become the pursuit of
trivia
Where toothpaste and cars have become
sex objects
Where imagination is sucked out of children
by a cathode ray nipple
T.V. is the only wet nurse
that would create a cripple

Television, the drug of the Nation
Breeding ignorance and feeding radiation

JERU THA DAMAJA: SCIENTIFICAL MADNESS

Scientifical Madness
My status is the baddest

There's a hole in the ozone layer
I'm rippin vampires
You think I give a fuck
Who's the biggest player?
Or who's got the fattest bank roll?
What is it if a man gains the world
And lose his own soul?
Bioengineered mutated chickens
Niggaz lickin' one another
Brother killin' brother
And you demon muthafuckas
Start coastal rivalries
The worlds greatest lust is jewelery
Mind, Jah lick you with disease
So I inflict MC's like Ebola
Or some other man-made cancer
Fuck a two-hundred dollar sweater
We need to try and reach the niggaz
On the corner
But all we do is create drug dealers
Envy then creates murderers
Diamond rings, pretty hoes
Fat chains, expensive things
Just watch which way
Ya burner swings in this world of...

Chemical warfare
The telephone man acts like he lives here
The goverment is putting mad shit in the air
Projects are strategically set-up
In the case that shit you up
They easily blown up
Poisonous gases
The so-called righteous help for the masses
But it's them that judge their own asses
Knowing what their task is
But still receding, ass backwards
Do you need to ask me who the devil is
Some may call it showbiz
I just call 'em hipocrites
'Cause they don't teach the children shit positive
Like how a man should live
They only focus on the negative
So they're stuck in the ghetto
While you drive a car and got a condo
It's all for the dolo
It's killing your own people
profits greater than Peneco
Forget about whats equal
In this world of...

Artifically inseminated
White bitches have babies most black youth are incarcerated
In the ghetto babies having babies but no loot
So most pregnancies are terminated
Warlocks keep the covenant
And the souls of the ignorant ones empower it
It's transparent
You see Uncle Sam as your parent
When Amerikkka has beef you jump up to defend it
But you can still be a defendant
Ask my co-defendant
And we're both innocent
Every black man in Amerikkka faces imprisonment
Ridicule, and torment
But in this tournament
The chosen few shall be triumphant
And the devil will be decapitated
So you can keep your duckets
And your dressing, I wont be emasculated
In this world of...

RAS KASS: THE NATURE OF THE THREAT

Let freedom ring with a buckshot, but not just yet
First we need to truly understand the nature of the threat
And a pale man walks in the threshold of darkness
Roughly 20,000 years ago the first humans evolved
with the phenotypical trait, genetic recessive
Blue eyes, blonde hair and white skin
Albinism apparently was a sin to the original man, Africans
So the mutants traveled North of the equator
Called Europeans later, the first race haters
So here's the Devil's alpha to the beta
Cause history's best qualified to teach one
Quoting German philosopher Schopenhauer
"Every white man is a faded or a bleached one"
Migration created further mutation
Genetic drifts, evolution through recombination
Adaptation to the climate
As the Caucus Mountain man reverted to that of a primate
Savage Neanderthals, until the late Paleolithic age
That's when the Black Grimaldi man came
With the symbol of the dragon, fire and art
Check cave paintings in France and Spain to the Venus of Willendorf
Around 2000 B.C. Southern Russians migrate in small units
Those who travel West populated Europe
Those who went East settled in Iran, known as Aryans
1500 B.C. some crossed the Khyber Pass into India and
created Hinduism, the first caste system, the origins of racism
A white dot on the forehead meant elite
The black dot - defeat; untrustable, untouchables
They wrote the holy Vedas in Sanskrit
That's the language that created Greek, German, Latin and English
Now the Minoans around 2000 B.C.
Starts on the island of Crete, in the Agean Sea
The Greek culture begins Western Civilization
But "Western Civilization" means "White Domination"
Myceneans learned from Kemet, called Egypt in Greek
It existed since at least 3000 B.C.
Creating geometry and astronomy
This knowledge influenced Plato, Socrates and Hippocrates
'Cause Imhotep, the real real father of medicine
Was worshiped in Greece and Rome in the form of a Black African
The word Africa comes from the Greek "Aphrike"
meaning "without cold"; the word philosophy means "love of knowledge"
Stole from first man, Greek power expands
The first Greek fraternities band
The word gymnasium is Greek for "naked"
This was the place where adolescent boys were educated, and molested
This was accepted because Greek culture was homosexual
For example, Sappho trained girls on the island of Lesbos
Hence, the word lesbian (Ay let these dumb motherfuckers know)
December 25th, the birth of Saturn
A homosexual god, now check the historical pattern
December 25, now thought the birth of Christ
Was Saturnalia, when men got drunk,
fucked each other then beat their wife
Fact is, it was still practiced, til they called it Christmas
So put a gerbil on your Christmas list
The Hellenistic Era, Alexander the Great
Conquers all the way to India leavin four successor states
By the Fifth century B.C., R.O.M.E.
succeeds to be the conqueror of Egypt and Greece
But had the threat of the Black Phoenicians in Sicily
The Punic Wars began 264 B.C.
The Black general Hannibal and Carthaginian Peace
In 146 B.C. Carthage fell after a six-month siege
Rome sold every citizen to slavery
The first genocide of history
And more bisexuality in sight; Julius Caesar was known as
"every woman's husband and every man's wife" (BEE-ATCH!)
Spartacus Revolt, a slave rebellion that lost
Where 6,000 slaves was nailed on a cross
Cross? Aw, shit! Jesus Christ! Time for some-act-right
Christians get your facts right
Cause Christ was not his name
That's Greek for "One who is anointed"
Yahshua Ben Yosef was his name, do Christians know this?
So who do you praise, do you know his name?
Or do you do this in vain?
Accepting the religion they gave slaves to behave
Peep the description of historian Josephus
"Short, dark, with an underdeveloped beard was Jesus"
He had the Romans fearing revolution
The solution was to take him to court and falsely accuse him
After being murdered by Pilate how can it be
these same white Romans established Christianity
Constantine would later see the cross in a dream
In his vision, it read "En Hawk Signo Wonka":
"In this sign we conquer" - Manifest Destiny
In 325 he convened the Nicean Creed
And separated god into three
Decided Jesus was born on December 25th
and raised then on the third day is a myth
Plus to deceive us
Commissioned Michelangelo to paint white pictures of Jesus
He used his aunt, uncle, and nephew
Subconsciously that affects you
It makes you put white people closer to God
(Yo, 'The Man' got game like a motherfucker!)
True indeed, fuck it, Jihad
In the eight century Muslims conquered
Spain, Portugal and France and controlled it for 700 years
They never mention this in history class
cause old faiths are threatened when you get the real lesson
Moors from Baghdad, Turkey threatened European Christians
Meaning, the white way of life; hence the Crusades for Christ
On November 25th, 1491
Santiago defeats the last Muslim stronghold, Grenada
King Ferdinand gave thanks to God for victory
And the Pope of Rome and declared this date to forever be
A day of "Thanksgiving" for all European Christians

.. Now listen, when you celebrate "Thanksgiving"
What you are actually celebratin
is the proclamation of the Pope of Rome
Who later, in league with Queen Isabella
sent Cardinal Ximenos to Spain
to murder any blacks that resisted Christianity
These Moors, these black men and women
were from Baghdad, Turkey
And today, you eat the turkey, for your "Thanksgiving" day
as the European Powers destroyed the Turkeys
Who were the forefathers of your mothers and fathers
Now fight the power, you bitch-ass niggaz!

Now around this time, Whites started callings us Negroes
That's Spanish for black object, meaning we're not really people
but property, and the triangle trade begins - they seize us
Queen Elizabeth sends the first slaves on a ship named Jesus
Stealin land from the indigenous natives
Gave them alcohol to keep the Red Man intoxicated
Whites claim they had to civilize these pagan animals
But up until 1848 there's documented cases
of whites bein the savage cannibals, eatin Indians
In 1992, it's Jeffrey Dahmer
They slaughtered a whole race with guns
Drugs, priests and nuns
1763, the first demonic tactic of biological warfare
As tokens of peace, Sir Jeffery Amherst
passed out clothin and blankets to the Indian community
Infested with smallpox, knowin they had no immunity
Today it's AIDS, you best believe it's man made
Cause ain't a damn thing changed.. let me explain
Now since people of color are genetically dominant
and Caucasoids are genetically recessive
and Whites expect to be predominant, meaning survive as a race then
they simply must, take precautions
That's why they're worried about their future now
Cuz by 2050, almost all the Earth's population
will be brown, then black, so understandin that, whites counterreact
(I'm sayin.. man.. them fools
ain't nothin but a teaspoon of milk in the world color majority)
So they created a system
to force blacks into an unnatural position
That re-enforces the position of natural inferiority
In addition, created guns and developed the ethnocentric view
that God justifies every fuckin thing they do
Condition people to perceive whites' culture as civilized
and every other culture considered primitive - not true!
Racism is the system of racial subjugation against nonwhites
in every areas of human relation
Entertainment, education, labor, politics
Law, religion, sex, war and economics
See blacks were 3/5ths of a man with tax purposes intended
You think you're Afro-American?
You're a 14th amendment and a good nigga
Jews don't salute the fuckin swastika
but niggaz pledge allegiance to the flag that accosted ya
They never teach about the break of islands like Jamaica
But before slaves came here whites would take a
pregnant women, hang her from a tree by her toes
Slice her stomach with a knife
and let the unborn baby fall to the flo'
And stop an unborn child in front of all the slaves
to inbreed fear, so they'd be scared and behave
and not rebel more
Understand all whites must be perceived as potential predators
I paraphrase historian Ishakamusa Barashango
"Understand that regardless of the lofty ideas ingraved on paper
in such documents as the Constitution or Declaration
the basic nature.. of the European American white man
remains virtually unchanged".. so check
This is the nature of the threat

CANIBUS: CHANNEL ZERO

Approximately fifty years ago
under the direction of President Harry Truman
and in the interest of 'national security'
A group of twelve top military scientific personnel were established
This group's primary objective
was to desensitize us to the truth
And to suppress the material evidence that our planet is being visited
by a group of extraterrestrial biological entities called the grays

Tune in to channel zero (8X)

Yo, sometimes the road to the truth is, so elusive it's confusin
And reality becomes illusion
If I showed the masses where we was at or where we was goin
I'd shatter the social balance of the world as we know it
I'm talkin 'bout the grand deception, of 1947
When our souls were sold to the heavens
for technologically advanced weapons
Crystal enhanced, brain implants, and mind control methods
MJ-12 is not majestic
And the focal point of our problems on this planet are not domestic
You can accept it or be stupid and be a skeptic
and fail to recognize the secret society's deathwish
Ninety-seven percent of our Presidents were Masons
Responsible for laundering trillions of dollars from the nation
for the construction of underground military installations
Abductions and cattle mutilations
Experiments on human patients
can take place in several subterranean bases
A hundred and fifty stories below a basement
With knowledge of genetic information, you need to fear science, not Satan
Cause through the manipulation of certain biological agents
they create strange creations
Top secret special operations
Low frequency sounds and lasers, people like Carl Sagan
that didn't believe in the Drake equation
were tryin to keep Western civilization on the need-to-know basis
Well you need to know that this is a game
and we're bein betrayed and played in the worst way

Tune in to channel zero (8X)

Yo, the holy script from Genesis 1-26
says, "Let us make man in our image under our likeness"
First of all who's THEY? You see if God
was truly a single entity that's not what he would say
We as the Elohim, Gods and Goddesses
posess a marvelously monstrous subconscious
Lifeforms that speak, in very high pitched sounds and squeaks
Short staccato clicks and beeps
A highly advanced form of speech
Even though to us it seems like they only chatterin they teeth
They used to swim deep in the oceans beneath
Til they fins transformed into limbs and they started to creep
Then they evolved into mammals with feet
And walked right from the shorelines onto the beach
They used gravity, cause it's actually the only force around
that could slow time and the speed of light down
The energy grid network, opened the gateway from Earth
to any point in the universe
Living organisms and various, geomagnetic gravitational, anomaly areas
Space expedition teams in the lunar regions
reported seeing decapyramids and tetrahedrons
Liquid filled shoes, is what they used
to walk across the moon without leavin a clue
of where they been for the past twenty-three billion years
Before life on the surface even appeared
I hope you become aware what I'm spittin in your ear
was intended to stimulate your left-brain's hemisphere
I know it sounds weird, all these motherfuckin answers
and questions to the grand deception

Tune in to channel zero (16X)

LUPE FIASCO: STATE-RUN RADIO

You must be a radio station
And who are we, we must be
A number one song spinnin all day long

And over again, and over again, and over again, and over again, and over again
We know when when we call in
And nothing's free, sounds to me like
State run radio

We interrupt this broadcast
To bring you the special message 'bout the forecast
The future's cloudy and it's raining on the poor class
Road to peace is closed, heavy traffic on the war paths
Love is ballin on a budget
The military says its gon need more cash
To keep fightin for your gas
Keep us in our hoods and hope we never explore pass
Stay inside of your half, believe the lies you learned in your class
That there's no treasure in your trash,
And the ceiling has the same feeling that the floor has
And that's where you should stay
This is what they play

Chorus
Over again, and over again, and over again, and over again, and over again
And we know when, when we call in
And nothing's free, sounds to me like
State run radio

You're now tuned into the weakest
Frequency of fear keep you locked right here
And hope you never leave this, never be a leader
Think inside the box and follow all procedures
Never ever believe that you will never need this
Hit up all your friends and tell them to repeat this

Hi, your'e on the air. now what you wanna hear?
Well, we ain't got the truth, but how about a remix?
Different is never good, good is only what we pick
You ain't got a hit unless it sounds like these did
Not too smart, you will be a superstar
And if you dumb or something maybe you could be number one

So, beware what's on the airwaves
And be more aware of what's not gettin air played
Independent spirit, you can barely hear what theyre sayin'
Youth aint gettin on like shampoo on an airplane
Propagandas everywhere, constantly on replay
All the hits all the time back to back on relay
We're really where it lives, make 'em hear the records we play
Build your own station, become your own DJ

You must be a radio station
And who are we, we must be
A number one song spinnin' all day long,
And you put me in daily rotation
You're on the air, we know your scared
But we don't care, well play this here

WADE WATERS: A POST-RACIAL AMERICA (PART 1)

It's the same thing, I saw yesterday, we need a better way
Cause ain't a thing changed

Police are violent but they tell me be a pacifist
I'm black and love this country, I'm a masochist
Post racial, can't be the agitate, this here inadequate
...makes me wanna blast it in
The border still looks a Nazi camp
They still murder blacks, ask Oscar Grant
Left wing politicians … a bunch of cowards they all afraid of …
False information leads to information of this cancer
Been untrue views is few through the camera
They blame Mexicans for trafficking intoxicants
In Arizona they gonna ask for your documents
Since Africans were carried to the Occident
They're trying to convince the world that … was an …
And how can I be confident, when the end … is incompetent
Beat out Obama leave them on high like on marijuana
Now we see is son attracts nothing but drama
We were real silly thinking that he might save us
My life chance still going in my white neighbors
No education, black juveniles fight cases
Can't they apologize so I call them racists
And I got a basis, covered all my bases
This goes out to Sarah … and Ronald Reagan
I got questions, I need answers,
Still trying to figure out what's the matter with Kansas

Kids got the same rights different chances
He who in heaven said advantage advances
He postrace you like an airport scan is
I got cabbies wanting me where the clan is
Shutter when they … double standards
Eating away if the discourse like cancer
Far from post racial, so hateful
Hates peaces, give a man a job on cable
...boxes, lost toxic, why watch it, I fix through their eye sockets my optic
The president is black so he's an ex factor
We on the next chapter, they trying to step backwards
Class war created, more deport hated
Success rate and skin color still correlated
You now even don't wanna talk about the N word
I wanna know why ideas your sister
Wave word is, down for the card is
I'm about to say fuck it, run for artist

It's the same thing, I saw yesterday, we need a better way
Cause ain't a thing changed
We have comfort we're not there yet
We're on the stair steps it's not fair yet
It's the same thing, I saw yesterday, we need a better way
Cause ain't a thing changed
And we still struggle, we ain't reclaiming
Gotta keep working, let's keep climbing.



BILL HICKS: LIFE IS LIKE AN AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE ROUTINE

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. It goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun ... for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..."

And we ... kill those people!

We always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. Jesus - murdered; Martin Luther King - murdered; Malcolm X - murdered; Gandhi - murdered; John Lennon - murdered; Reagan... wounded.

But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.
