I Want to Talk to You - Nas

[Chorus: repeat 2X]

I wanna talk to the mayor, the governor, the motherf_ckin president
I wanna talk to the FBI, and the CIA, and the motherf_ckin congressman

Step up to the White House let me in
Whats my reason for being I'm ya next to kin
And we built this motherf_cker
You wanna kill me because my hunger?
Mr. America young black n_ggaz want ya
I wanna talk to the man understand
Understand this motherf_ckin G-pack in my hand
Look what happened to San Fran young girl hit by policeman
Twelve shots up in her dome, damn
N_ggaz thought we slept but the architect sent
The Pentagon's from Egypt, government secret
The 99 to 2-G computer shutdown, what now
Extension on Earth, human cutdown
N_ggaz play with PlayStations, they build a spacestations
On Mars plottin civilizations
Dissin us discriminatin different racisis
Tax payers pay for more jail for black latin faces


I'm just a black man why y'all made it so hard damn
N_ggaz gotta go create their own job
Mr. Mayor imagine if this was your backyard
Mr. Governor imagine if it was your kids that starved
Imagine your kids gotta sling crack to survive
Swing a mack to be live cart ack to get high
It's the ghetto life yea I celebrate it I live it
And all I got is what you left me with I'ma get it
Now y'all combinin all the countries we goin do the same
Combine all the cliques to make one gang
It ain't all about a black and white thing
it's to make the change, citizens of a higher plane


What y'all waitin for the world to blow up
Before you hear this rewind this 4 minutes before we timeless
Let y'all n_ggas bang my sh_t before ? is
The Nastradamus tell us what time it is
They try to buy us with doe
Fake black leaders of puppets always talking bout the city budget
The news got it all confused lyin to the public
They eyes watchin stay wise move above it
Water floods predicted hurricanes twisters
Its all signs of the Armageddon three sixes
People reverse the system politics verse religion
Holy war muslim verse christians
N_ggaz in high places they don't have the balls for this
People in power sit back and watch them slaughter us
Mr. President I assume it was negligence
The streets upside down, I'm here to represent this

[Chorus 2X]

Can I talk to you Mr. President
N_ggaz tryin to get with the computers
We ain't John Henry
Banging down machines and sh_t
Part of establishment
That's what we are steppin up for
This sh_t is real

Total Package in this n_gga
LES in this n_gga
Ill Will n_gga
Mr. President wanna keep us from establishment
N_ggaz are american baby
American Made
