    Yeah, reminiscent of another time
    And another state of mind
    VERSE I
    I used to flow
    They used to call me a rhyme animal
    Some of them don’t call me rio mo so
    I try a new style refuse to get wild
    On the B side because I still got my pride
    The pride comes from another time
    My father and mother plus God
    Blessed the rhyme
    Born in 1960 seventy suckers quizzing
    Me what was it like before everybody
    Tried to be like Mike
    Back in the day when our peeps had
    To fight for our rights
    To make the day fell alright
    But there is no is without a was
    No about to be buts or because..I got
    Pride
    Reminiscent of another time
    Dashikis, bells, to straight legs
    Platforms & picks
    See it wasn’t just about the fro
    It was what was underneath that fro
    Black power for the powerless
    Deuce and quarters, caddies 442’s
    Yeah pride

    VERSE II
    Say, say it loud
    James singin black and I’m proud
    I was in third grad when Dr. King got slain
    And if I had to read a book about
    The facts, the fact is that the black
    Would be overlooked look
    1967 I was seven livin proof of
    what I had learned in my youth
    what a difference a score and a
    decade makes mistakes and super bad
    breaks wait
    I ate the food in the lunch programs
    And now I see the young strung out on
    Grams so I work on a go on
    And so on and soon communicate to
    Get the young straight
    Cause I got the pride

    TALK BREAK

    Now in order for us to know
    Who we are we got to know
    Who we was and once we know
    Who we was then we know who
    Were gonna be

    Pride

    VERSE III
    The panther party before lad-i-da-di
    Put pride inside plus taught karate
    Fed heads in many ways many days
    Were served locked down protectin the
    Black and the brown
    Now today the old must spread it
    I said it
    If they don’t communicate then the
    You can’t get it
    Problems have to be solved they
    Won’t go away so man what
    You say and don’t sway
    Gotta get that pride

    TALK
    King, Malcolm, Medgar, Hampton
    Ritos and rebellions
    Newark, Watts, Uptown
    Harlem that is black gold
    Ghetto stell
    I reserve the right to be nothing
    But a man
    We reserve the right to be nothing
    But men and women
