RIP Rahwa Habte. I will always carry the Hidmo in my heart.
with their mean faces on all night and they won’t go,
Then they come to the hood for cheap houses,
Pissed when nobody of color here bounces,
Then they call the cops saying “theirs drugs and prostitution!”
If you really that scared of crowds of Black men, why the fuck you move to 20th and Jackson?
Don’t even know em but you gonna attack them?
Pissed off cause we been seen outside rapping
That’s how we cypher in the CD and the Southside
From my islands all the way to the ghetto,
From Hagå’ña to Manila to Othello
Go ahead let’s keep on with our walk, makibaka chants on point like isang baksak....
Tryna steal our land but we taking it back,
So I be saying these raps, cuz they making up “facts”
They may have stole our land but we taking it back
They may have stole our land but we taking it back” - Taking it Back circa 2008
