Blackman In Effect Lyrics – Boogie Down Productions

Blackman In Effect Lyrics by Boogie Down Productions

Wake up
Take the pillow from your head and put a book in it
It’s time for the massive BDP crew at the top of the pile
Yo. In the morning I’m yawning, at noon is when I wake up

Make up my bed break up the bread and said
Scratching my head, why am I so damn intimidating?
Is it because of laws designed to keep us waiting and waiting
Thus hating all forms of a setback

Get back, if you can’t understand a rap act
This is the language of the people ready to hear the crew
I’ve got no juice, ’cause I’m not getting juiced
To have juice means you kiss and lick a lot of booty

To have respect means you simply new or newly
Heard what I had to say and felt as though you’d say that too
I’m not down with a juice-crew
But anyway I say today the message I create is great

I don’t preach hate, I simply get the record straight
It’s not the fault of the black race that we are misplaced
We’re robbin’ and killin’, your own medicine you taste
You built up a race on the concept of violence

Now in ’90 you want silence
Well, I want science, not silence but science
Scientific fact about black
The board of education acts as if it’s only reality

Is talking ’bout a Tom, Dick and Harry
So now you learn your black history is questions and answers
Every question but the Black Panthers
Timbuctoo existed when the caveman existed

Why then isn’t this listed
Is this because the blackman is the original man
Or does it mean humanity is African
I don’t know, but these sciences are hidden

For some strange reason it’s forbidden
To talk about, or converse on a political outburst
I don’t believe that I’m the first
Or should I say the first one, or the first one that’s done

Music like I’m still number one
Music like that or this is the incredible uplift
Those that oppose get dissed
But who will oppose the teacher when society’s a wreck

So check the blackman’s in effect
Near the Tigris and Euphrates Valleys in Asia
Lies the Garden of Eden
Where Adam became a father to humanity

Now don’t get mad at me
But according to facts, this seems just fantasy
Because man, the most ancient man
Was found thousands of years before Adam began

And where he was found, again they can’t laugh at ya
It’s right, dead, smack in Africa
But due to religious and political power
We must be denied the facts every hour

We run to school, tryin’ to get straight A’s
Let’s take a trip way back in the days
To the first civilization on Earth, the Egyptians
Giving birth to science, mathematics and music

Religion, the list goes on, you choose it
Egypt was the land of spiritual blessing
Egypt was the land of facts, not guessing
People from all over the world had come

To learn from Egypt, Egypt number one
So people that believe in Greek philosophy
Know your facts, Egypt was the monopoly
Greeks had learned from Egyptian masters

You might say “Prove it”, well here’s the answers
640 To 322 b.C. originates Greek philosophy
But in that era Greece was at war
With themselves and Persia, what’s more

Any philosopher at that time was a criminal
He’d be killed very simple
This indicates that Greece had no respect
For science or intellect

So how the hell you created philosophy
When you kill philosophers constantly
The point is that we descend from kings
Science, art and beautiful things

African history is the worlds history
This is the missing link and mystery
Once we realise they all are African
White will sit down with black and laugh again

So judge not least ye might be judged
By the judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged
Matthew seven, first verse doesn’t budge
No man should walk the Earth and sludgez

If you don’t believe, you can go and check
To see how and where the blackman’s in effect
