All grown up and ready to lead, shake it up!
Make it real – compared to what?
Getting shot at, it’s all left up to us.
The hip hop generation, our generation
We’ve got the longevity, educated enough to know
No time for sorrow, gotta share all the love
Love the way it should be.
Not let our minds get trapped in time.
We can change how the world turns.
