    Yo Ice you been down with the struggle for a long time man...
    Why don't you drop some knowledge for these brothers who
    want to get involved in this war...

    Take notes: real gangstas wear trench coats
    Grey suits black ties and they seek votes
    And you're not to be misled
    They'll kill you in your fuckin' bed
    They don't sell dope yo excuse me yes they do
    But they don't look that much like me or you
    But if you pull up the sheets and expose them
    They'll crawl up like snakes and show fangs of venom
    Now I've been soldier for years
    Representin' the tattooed tears
    Other brothas locked up with no choice
    Left in the bowels of devil with no voice
    My phones are tapped, my crib is bugged
    My car is tailed from club to club
    And this ain't no fuckin' joke
    They want to see a nigga broke
    You can't slip, if you slip you're out
    You gotta know what you're talkin' about
    Drop science every chance you get
    Hit direct and indirect, speak in code
    Cause you're never alone
    That's why I use this low tone
    Follow this and you might grow older
    This is a message to the soldiers...

    Now they killed King and they shot X
    Now they want me, you could be next
    All you gotta do is speak too loud
    All you gotta be is be too proud
    Cause once you let'em know
    Who you are and where you're at
    You better watch your back
    Cause you might think you're just dope
    While you're livin' in a sniper's scope
    I'm not tryin' to scare you
    But there's a danger if you get too deep
    Some nights I don't sleep
    All you wanna do is tell the truth
    All you wanna do is save the youth
    Ice Cube knows, Souljah knows, P.E. knows
    They throw death blows
    And if you got kids or a girl that's true
    They'll move on them too
    But when I'm gone I need you to carry on
    You gotta be strong and fight for our salvation
    But there will be retaliation, soldier...

    To think that rap could be attacked
    Is ignorin' the simple fact
    That they never ment us to speak
    They had planned to keep the black man weak
    But rap hit the streets
    Black rage amplified over dope beats
    Now they want to shut us down
    And they don't fuck around
    Check the history books, son
    Black leaders die young
    They tell us that your words are scary
    They're revolutionary
    Because we speak the truth
    About crime and drugs
    And expose the real thugs
    This info is not beneficial
    To the groups that go by three initals
    So they try to discredit
    They'll dog you with an edit
    Print the words the way you never said it
    But we gotta make'em regret it, soldiers...

    Word! I know a lot of brothas out there want to get in this war...
    You know what I'm sayin'? a lot of sistas got a lot of knowledge
    to drop on our people but right now they're movin' to shut down
    all hip-hop! The first amendment had absolutely nothin' to do
    with black people at the time constitution was written, we were
    considered nothin' but property...The expectation of havin' black
    people speak on records never came to mind, so we gotta move!
    But belive me all the black leaders have been silenced and most
    of the time it's been violent so if you choose to get in this war,
    realize what you're in for but we gotta move on...
    And we gotta stay strong...

    Message to the soldiers, welcome to the struggle...
    Message to the soldiers, be careful, soldiers...
