 Immortal Technique - That’s What It Is

"Used to live robbing and stealing and being reckless
It took time for my mind to put the ghetto in perspective
I used to live in the back, of a holding van
Used to be offbeat, like the white girls’ shoulder dance
I wrote rhymes a cappella, no beat, behind bars
Shed blood to make it, like the story behind scars”

Immortal Technique - You Never Know feat. Jean Grae (Revolutionary Vol. 2, 2003)

Don’t you know that, time waits for no man
Not fate, it’s all planned
I’m blessed just to know you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost just to hold you all night
Can’t find, a reason why
God came, between you and I
If I had the chance again, I’d never let you go
Hold tight to your love, ‘cause you never know

"Although many people define “success” in terms of material wealth and control, there are a lot of people whose “idea of success is just to be free and equal.
—  Immortal Technique, hip hop artist and activist on the definition of success.
