    *Sample* Nas: "Political"

    Newscaster: "Recently there has been an emergence of socially
    conscious and political rappers. It seems to be
    a new trend in the Hip-Hop world."

    *DJ scratches sample* Nas: "Nas is a rebel to America" 3X*

    [Vers 1: Nas]
    Yeah, check it, uh
    Spot build-rocker, lil' papa killed Hoffa
    Beard lil' longer, feel strong and I'll stop ya
    Drill sergeant, still thorough, wheelbarrows of distilled vodka
    Get me real bonkers like Will Ferrell on cat tranquilizer
    Rap guys get bank and think they messiahs, but they liars
    Vote fo who now? You're red, white and blue?
    I'm American too, but I ain't with the president's crew
    What you peddlin' and who you peddlin' to?
    You ain't got the ghetto with you
    Try'na lead my sheep to the slaughterhouse
    Talkin 'bout +Rap the Vote+, you ain't thought about
    The black vote mean nathan, who you gonna elect
    Satan or Satan? In the hood nothin is changin, uh
    We ain't got no choices who to choose
    Ten-years ago they were tryin to stop our voices
    And end Hip-Hop, they some hypocrites
    Condoleeza Rice - I don't really get this chick
    Tell her if she ever really cared about poor schools
    About poor children, then she gotta prove that she
    ain't just another coon Uncle Tom fool
    Like these MC's, gotta give 'em the rules
    Lie to the youth, Uncle Tom you confused
    Might as well give the Hip-Hop community a noose
    Need a truce with the gangs and some food for the hungry
    On Kerry nuts, he look at you like a monkey
    You MC's on that old slavery path
    The Bushs'll look at yo' ass and laugh
    See, it's all about community, let's help ourselves
    Cops brutalize us get dealt with with shells
    It's our turn, it's 'bout time we win
    Need somebody as the hood as my councilman, uh

    [Chorus: Kelis]
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    (Nas: Cause that's the American way)
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way

    [Verse 2: Nas]
    Up in the steam room chillin', exfoliating the skin
    It's rarely men conversatin' on ends, probably businessmen
    I sense good taste, and they watch us, the spots an expensive place
    Manhattan New York, I'm try'na keep steamin'
    It's good for the lungs, had plans for the evening
    This man leans in, his boys laughing
    Now I'm the spokesperson for Black men, this always happens
    Says, "Since all Black women care about is who got dough
    And all we do is call them either bitch or a Black hoe"
    I say first brotha you ain't gotta be that cold
    Since you ignorant, I'ma show you how the facts go
    The biggest example in scandal of history
    Were Monica Lewinksy or Donald Trump's pimping spree
    Most woman who love Jeevanji of Gucci
    Are pretentious non-Black groupies or floozies
    But who are we to blame, not the dames
    It's a man-made game, in essence our woman the same
    Beautiful creatures, Black girls birthed the earth
    So they deserve to earn man's purse
    Matter fact, I'm about to go shopping with my dime
    Catch you cowards the next time, the next rhyme, uh

    [Chorus: Kelis singing]
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    (Nas: That's the American way)
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    (Nas: Cause that's the American way. What up, K?)
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    (Nas: That's the American way)
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way, shit
    (Nas: Ha, yeah)

    I don't care about the runaways
    I don't care about who's gay
    I don't care about dying of AIDS
    But I care if I got paid
    Who even cares about the president?
    I think they're making a mistake
    I don't care about the hurricane
    As long as my family's safe
    I don't care about the candidates
    They burnt this country to bits
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way (Nas: Uh)

    Can we make a change
    You know it's not overnight
    Let's start the fight (Nas: And ya don't stop, uh)
    Can we make a change
    You know it's not overnight
    Let's start the fight (Nas: Yeah)
    Yeah I think about this everyday, that's the American Way

    *Sample* Nas: Nas is a rebel to America!
