Thread: Victim - Track Review

  1. #1

    Default Victim - Track Review

    Victim

    Beneath the Surface
    1999

    GZA
    Njeri Earth


    Arabian Knight



    [Chorus]

    (Joan Davis)

    Just another victim of the... victim of the ghetto
    Just Another victim, that's how it goes, ooh

    (GZA)

    Heavy foot traffic jam the hallway all day
    Adolescents workin' for small pay
    World so little, he could never leave his block
    His home bullet riddled, so he always need his glock
    Coast with his eye open, keep his metal smokin'
    Young wasted minds, fiendin' on dimes, cokin'
    Forgot kids quick to break rules, and known to make fools
    out of many, now the streets be more safe than school
    There's no diploma, that can break you from the coma
    A bloody war in the country, the youth hungry
    On the corner, hyenas amongst me
    Yappin' bout the stories, they be hearin', always swearin'
    Can't even spell the shit that he be wearin'
    Caught up in the silk web of material
    Superficial stains ya brain tissue, that's the issue
    The young is lost at their own cost, dreamin'
    Screamin' how they never hold positions thats demeaning
    Brothers of murder victims share the same grief
    The elderly shake their head in disbelief
    and no relief came till I aimed
    and blast one shot and left my name
    The GZA

    [Chorus]

    (Njeri)

    My residence is a city where army veterans smoke rocks
    on torn down blocks, drug spots set out their shops
    and cops watch, innocent niggaz roamin' in flocks
    Romanism in tops, papers and knots
    Churches and liquor stores on every corner, plot to get money not
    some funny niggaz act like they could pop glocks and those who can't cop
    Sisters givin' up ass a lot, brothers givin' up cash a lot
    They be strugglin' to become someone because their parents not
    Just another victim of the ghetto, where lost minds settle
    When the devil uncivil society and die free
    With double 'W' followed by J-D around the necks
    and wrists the God is now a dog, the earth is called a bitch
    and all my people wish to get rich in this wilderness
    To push a Lexus, ice on everythin' from rings and bracelets to the necklaces
    Children molested within these pest infested buildings
    Thieves uneducated in these schools, paint on the ceilin's
    Peelin' off, but all I see is lost black babies callin'
    "Please somebody save me, please somebody save me"

    [Chorus x2]

    [Outro]

    it needs another GZA verse in all honesty. But I love it when Wu do their ghetto conscienceness tracks.

    There is some good quotables here - 'now the streets be more safe than schools'. 'Cant even spell the shit they be wearing' 'the elderly shake their heads in disbelief'. 'Churches and liquor stores on every block'
