I Self Devine - Intro Lyrics

Food
Abandonment
Both negative and positive
Fear of success
Broken English and smoker's hack
Untapped power
[?] classics at the beauty supply
Being marginalized and trying to find a way
How much beauty comes out of both communities
Poverty
It sounds angry, it looks hungry
The incoherent babble at the bus stop
Being able to work with what you have
Jacking break beats off of old records
Little kids walking to school
People in their neighborhood getting their [?] done making stuff fly and doing their thing
Always walking on thin ice
Fear of failure
Thrift store shoes once size too big
Nickel sex behind a motherfucking [?]
A checkout line at the dollar store
[?] most energetic
Five dollar wife-beaters and white tees
The least amount of resources put forth the most amount of effort
Ghetto fabulous culture
Neglect
Hope
Music
People going on the bus to work
Disenfranchisement
The car alarm at 3am that you can't escape
It sounds aggressive
It's a fixed game, the game is fixed
Community
Mothers yelling at their children in public
Immigration
No insurance
Beauty
The sizzling of fast food
Caste system
I think of optimism
Substandard produce
It's that paycheck to paycheck
Making a dollar out of 15 cents
A closed door
Flaming hot cheetos and [?] on the corner of Church and [?]
Potential
We are the foundation
The working class people are the beat of the drum
It sounds like home
When I really think about low class America, I feel that's where change is gonna start, it's gotta start there
