I Keep Something Around To Buck Back

I cock that, aim that shit out the window
Spray, there ain't a shell left in my heat
Ya'll *****s better lay down, yeah I mean stay down
Get hit with a K round, ya ass ain't gon' make it
You *****s gon' get layed out in blood and ya brains out
Have you on the concrete, shiverin' and shakin'
I'm from Southside mothafucka, where them gats explode
If you feel like you on fire, boy drop and roll
*****s'll heat ya ass up cause they heart turns cold
Now you can be a victim or you can lock and load

And the outrage is...where?
Every corner of the [US] experienced an increase in homicides, robberies and aggravated assaults last year, but the steepest rise in such crimes was in the Midwest and among midsized cities, according to a preliminary FBI report released Monday.

The FBI's data show that violent crime rose 2.5 percent in 2005 compared with the year before. Murders and manslaughters rose 4.8 percent and robberies jumped 4.5 percent.

That's not a "whatever" stat. Across the board, murders have gone up in every region and in the vast majority of cities. Some are reporting that there were are over 16,000 murders in 2005. It just shows you something incredible about the US: terrorism, in a very real way, is not anywhere near the threat (so far) to Americans as everyday murder-murders continue to produce 5 times the mayhem as 9/11 on a regular basis.

If the US took murders as seriously terrorism (it doesn't) it would declare the NRA a terrorist organization and declare a moratorium on unlicensed gun sales at gun shows.

But it won't. A drive-by in LA that kills 4 people will receive no news coverage, but if 1 person contracts Anthrax in DC and the US loses its mind.

We need some perspective, peeps.
Gangstas use sign language and let they guns talk
I'm cool with some bloods, I'm cool with some crippes
I'm cool but if there's a problem, ***** I got extra clips
