New rhyme by Mark Naison aka The Notorious Phd "A Recession Jam"
Notorious is here so don't complain
I'll be spitting rhymes like clouds bring rain
MC's that front better run for cover
We need jams that bring hope to our sisters and brothers
We're living in a world of hate and pain
Where justice fails, and greed's insane
Where the banks get bailed and the people starve
And the media lie while the rich live large
People need to take the country back
Fore the train we're riding leaves the Freedom Track
We need homes for the homeless and gyms for the kids
And release of dealers doing ten year bids
Recovery without jobs is a wrecking ball
It means tracks that rot and bridges that fall
Will we watch our dreams die and our families shatter
If we don't have work, nothing else matters
Mark is probably best known for quoting Big Daddy Kane, "Pimpin Ain't Easy," on this Dave Chapelle Show clip but their is much more to him then that.
Read more about him on Wikipedia, check out his new book "The Rat That Got Away: A Bronx Memoir," and pick his brain on Facebook and Twitter.
Keep up the good work Mark.
P.S. Shout out to Wash Heights... Dave know what it is..
