2 Runaway love by Ludacris Hook - Mary J. Blige] Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love Runaway love [Verse 1 - Ludacris] Now little Lisa is only 9 years old She's trying to figure out why the world is so cold Why she's all alone and ain't never met her family Mama's always gone and she never met her daddy Part of her is missing and nobody will listen Mama is on drugs getting high up in the kitchen Bringing home men at different hours of the night Starting with some laughs -- usually ending in a fight Sneaking in her room while her mama's knocked out Trying to have his way and little Lisa says 'ouch' She tries to resist but then all he does is beat her Tries to tell her mom but her mama don't believe her Lisa is stuck up in the world on her own Forced to think that hell is a place called home Nothing else to do but get some clothes and pack She says she's 'bout to run away and never come back. [Hook - Mary J. Blige] Runaway love [x8] [Verse 3 - Ludacris] Little Erica is eleven years old She's steady trying to figure why the world is so cold So she pops x to get rid of all the pain Plus she's having sex with a boy who's sixteen Emotions run deep and she thinks she's in love So there's no protection he's using no glove Never thinking 'bout the consequences of her actions Living for today and not tomorrow's satisfaction The days go by and her belly gets big The father bails out he ain't ready for a kid Knowing her mama will blow it all outta proportion Plus she lives poor so no money for abortion Erica is stuck up in the world on her own Forced to think that hell is a place called home Nothing else to do but get her clothes and pack She say she's about to run away and never come back. This song is about how young females that live in the ghetto or hood and how they don’t have a silver spoon in their mouth. How they get pregnant or how they don’t feel loved. [Hook - Mary J. Blige] Runaway love [x8] Verse 2 - Ludacris] Little Nicole is only 10 years old She's steady trying to figure why the world is so cold Why she's not pretty and nobody seems to like her Alcoholic step-dad always wanna strike her Yells and abuses, leaves her with some bruises Teachers ask questions she making up excuses Bleeding on the inside, crying on the out It's only one girl really knows what she about Her name is lil Stacy and they become friends Promise that they always be tight 'til the end Until one day lil Stacy gets shot A drive by bullet went stray up on her block Now Nicole stuck up in the world on her own Forced to think that hell is a place called home Nothing else to do but get her clothes and pack She says she's 'bout to run away and never come back. [Hook - Mary J. Blige] Runaway love [x8]

Eh yo you now see most cats, would take advantage of you right now but I ain't gone do that yo I’ma give you the game, right I’ma give it to you because I would want somebody to give my little girl the game when she done found her s.e.x Life’s a trip virgin just turned 17 and finally got some hips hustlers on the block go crazy when you lick ya lips but they just want relation they don’t want relationship (welcome to the real world) it ain’t the same fellas old enough to be ya daddy know ya name everybody's talking’ ‘bout how much that girl done changed can’t quite put ya finger on it but you feelin’ strange like it's fire in your veins (Chorus) Girl it’s just your s.e.x. mama's secret and daddy gone go crazy when he finds out that his baby’s found her s.e.x. take a deep breath and think before you let it go (let it go) the block is packed baby gotta attitude and proud to holla back momma’s givin’ advice but she ain’t tryna hear that not because it's wrong, just her delivery is wack (shay get ya behind in this house, if I see you with another boy, I swear) life is rough, you say that you’re not ready for sex, but you’re in love he says if you’d really loved him, you would give it up mama says that’s just a line guys use to get ya stuff which one will you trust? Girl it’s just your s.e.x. mama's secret and daddy gone go crazy when he finds out that his baby’s found her s.e.x. take a deep breath and think before you let it go (let it go) Eh yo Lyfe, she may take it better coming from a woman (give it to her) see he’ll tell you all kind of things to get in your pants, yeah baby it’s a fact, that once it’s gone (it's gone) you’ll never get it back (never get it back) hold on, to your innocence use your common sense you’re worth waiting for (you’re worth waiting for) be strong honey don’t give in blessing come with patience until we meet again, I’m praying, for you (Chorus) girl it’s just your s.e.x. mama's secret and daddy gone go crazy when he finds out that his baby’s found her s.e.x. take a deep breath and think before you let it go (let it go) I Chose this song because it explains one of the difficult decisions most teens are faced with from day to day. Some females are mislead by men who are older than they are and made to believe that they are in love, but the truth is the man only wants to be with her for sex.

7 Minority report by Jay-z "Minority Report" (feat. Ne-Yo) [Intro: News Excerpts] The damage here along the gulf coast is catastrophic. There's a frantic effort under way tonight to find survivors. There are an uncounted number of the dead tonight... People are being forced to live like animals... We are desperate... No one says the federal government is doing a good job.. And hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people... No water, I fought my country for years.. We need help, we really need help.. In Baghdad, they they drop, they air drop water, food to people..why cant they do that to their own people? The same idiots that can't get water into a major American city in less than three days are trying to win a war... [Verse 1 - Jay-Z] People was poor before the hurricane came But the down pour poured is like when Mary J. sang Every day it rains, so every day the pain But ignored them, and showed em the risk was to blame For life is a chain, cause and effected Ni g g as off the chain because they affected It's a dirty game so whatever is effective From weed to selling kane, gotta put that in effect Wouldn't you loot, if you didn't have the loot? Baby needed food and you stuck on the roof Helicopter swooped down just to get a scoop Through his telescopic lens but he didn't scoop you The next five days, no help ensued They called you a refugee because you seek refuge The commander-in-chief just flew by Did he stop? No, he had a couple seats Just proved jet blue he's not Jet flew by the spot What if he ran out of jet fuel and just dropped hu,That woulda been something to watch Helicopters doing fly-bys to take a couple of shots Couple of portraits then ignored 'em He'd be just another bush surrounded by a couple orchids Poor kids just 'cause they were poor kids Left 'em on they porches same old story in New Orleans Silly rappers, because we got a couple Porches MTV stopped by to film our fortresses We forget the unfortunate Sure I ponied up a mill, but I didn't give my time So in reality I didn't give a dime, or a d a m n I just put my monies in the hands of the same people that left my people stranded Nothin' but a bandit Left them folks abandoned D a m n, that money that we gave was just a band-aid Can't say we better off than we was before In synopsis this is my minority report Can't say we better off than we was before In synopsis this is my minority report [Verse 2 - Ne-Yo] So many times I'm, covering my eyes Peeking through my fingers Tryin' to hide my, frustration at the way that we treat (Seems like we don't even care) Turn on the TV, seein' the pain Sayin' such a shame Then tryin' to go on with my life Of that, I too, am guilty (Seems like we don't even care) So we send a lil' money, tell 'em it's alright To be able to sleep at night You will pay that price While some of these folks' lost their whole life (Seems like we don't even care) Now it wasn't on the nightly news no more Suddenly it didn't matter to you no more In the end almost nothing changed What the h e l l, what was that for? (Seems like we don't even care) This song describes the situation in New Orleans with Hurricane Katrina. The government didnt respond immediately and sent minimal help so the citizens accused the president of not caring enough for his own citizens because of his involvement with a war wit another country. [Outro: News Excerpts]...Buses are on the way to take those people from New Orleans to Houston...They lyin'...People are dying at the convention center...Their government has failed them...George Bush doesn't care about black people

10 Pain in my life by saigon [Saigon:] Young Felicia was only four when she learned how to ride a bike Now she fourteen ridin' every Tom, Dick, and Mike I tell her "that ain't nice, why you livin' so trife" She told me "MYOB, homie, you don't know mw {"It's so much pain in my life"} Her sister the same Felecia claims she the one who hipped her to the game She fucked Jermaine because Jermaine had a shiny chain Now when she pee on the potty she feel a minor pain And she noticed her vagina changing; and not for the better She see bumps and all kinds of things The doctor suggested she take a HIV test, she said "Yes" Now she waitin to rest, she so stressed {"So much pain in my life"} And so say the bum on the corner When I ask him why he bummin' for quarters Was it him, or was it government order; Said he thirsty I offered him water, but he said he want somethin' stronger He said {"There's pain my life"} Said he needs something to numb it Somethin' to burn a hole in his stomach First I said "naw", but after talking to him; It was clear that his wife was his life and dope had murder the woman {"So much pain in my life"} That bum used rum to keep his feelings numb; Felicia was out there killin' them Her a fatherless daughter, him a daughterless father She a nymhomaniac, he got his toughts in th bottle Would it help for them to walk with a bible They both say, "nah" the finf Religion as akward as I do I could holla give a dollar but what more could I do Not much, they got fucked, it's what we call survival [Chorus: Trey Songz] {"So much pain in my life"} You feel this pain I've been havin' Wouldn't lead to much change Cuz down here, not muched changed Cause everbody wanna thug, mayn {"So much pain in my life"} If you knew the pain I sustained Just from lettin' my gun bang If you would pump your breaks young mayn You'd jump in the other lane [Saigon:] {"So much pain in my life"} I know how it feel I been in jail with none of my niggaz keepin' it real No dough, no mail, it was "yo, go to hell" Now they jealous cuz I'm hangin' out with Cocoa Chanel Even though I got pain in my life I keep it discreet I got a deal, I still sleep in the street Y'all hustle to get the keys to a jeep; til the judge throw the book at you fuckers and tell you to read it and weep {"So much pain in my life"} to let me not forget about Leonard The preacher been feelin' on leonard for a minute Told if he told his sould would be demented Even if he made it to the gate he wouldn't get in it {"It's pain in my life"} Y'all niggaz use pain for a gimmick But Leonard pain got pushed to the limit Got em' layin on the sofa one night, his throat sliced With a suicide not and a knife, what he write {"It's so much pain in my life"} That he's no longer wantin' to live it Breathin' is no longer important, forget it What he didn't write is that he was molested since he was five And would rather die before he was forced to admit it He said {"It's pain in my life"} this pain niggaz feel everyday My middle finger wave high to the critics I didn't get it, so what? Maybe I should just stay away And let my man, Trey Songz and them hit it In this song, he touches on many issues that go on in the poor communities including, homelessness, sexually transmitted diseases, and incarceration.

11 Lose yourself by eminem Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment Would you capture it or just let it slip? His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out He's chokin, how everybody's jokin now The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah! Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked He's so mad, but he won't give up that Easy, no He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes It don't matter, he's dope He knows that, but he's broke He's so stagnant that he knows When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's Back to the lab again yo This whole rap shit He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him [Hook:] You better lose yourself in the music, the moment You own it, you better never let it go You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's gaping This world is mine for the taking Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order A normal life is borin, but superstardom's close to post mortem It only grows harder, only grows hotter He blows us all over these hoes is all on him Coast to coast shows, he's know as the globetrotter Lonely roads, God only knows He's grown farther from home, he's no father He goes home and barely knows his own daughter But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water His hoes don't want him no mo, he's cold product They moved on to the next schmoe who flows He nose dove and sold nada So the soap opera is told and unfolds I suppose it's old partna', but the beat goes on Da da dum da dum da da This song I chose because it tells us that no matter what we go through in life we can still achieve the success we dream about and live the dream that we wish to live. We should take advantage of every opportunity we have to obtain success. [Hook] No more games, I'ma change what you call rage Tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged I was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage But I kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher Best believe somebody's payin the pied piper All the pain inside amplified by the fact That I can't get by with my 9 to 5 And I can't provide the right type of life for my family Cuz man, these goddam food stamps don't buy diapers And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder Tryin to feed and water my seed, plus Teeter totter caught up between being a father and a prima donna Baby mama drama's screamin on and Too much for me to wanna Stay in one spot, another day of monotony Has gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail I've got to formulate a plot fore I end up in jail or shot Success is my only mothafuckin option, failure's not Mom, I love you, but this trailer's got to go I cannot grow old in Salem's lot So here I go is my shot. Feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got [Hook] You can do anything you set your mind to, man

Yeah the older brother of the drug game, that give her a fame, then take away her lane. the empowerer of the kings that came to claims and disease believe wat the native people were saying. Believe, my engagement ring received and flossed at the cost of a bondage child minus pain. Long ago kings use to wear em in their armour, when they fought other armies, because it use to scare em. If you wasn't rich couldn't wear em. Witches use to marry, and they'd shoot you before they share em. The gift and the curse, the venom and the serum. Most hated ladies best friend get murked for a clip. [Chorus] Diamonds are forever... [Verse 2:] Cecil Rhodes sold war and genocide To the countryside just to get his shine on! I fear what De Beers and his peers use to do, before the world really knew, just to get their "mine" on! Making paper with slave labour and hittin little kids with life time bids making em cut and shine stones. Inflating the price and making em look nice and i wasnt thinking twice when i was putting mine on. About a young shorty in Sierra Leone or other conflict countries that people call home. I figured i would never go to Angola so it never did affect me that maybe indirectly. That my neckleash was funding a rebellion or a military coup, Started by militias that dont believe in following none of Geneva's rules. I was brushing off the haters, trying to be cool. Didnt have a clue that the rapper was helping the rapers, raiders of the villagers, pillagers of the schools. Shooters of the innocent, torturers of the witnesses, burners of the businesses And my bracelet was the fuel. Uhh, i aint pushing an agenda homie, Im just pushing the facts, Fuck Bush! Cuz theres people doin worse on this earth and there black, I took it for years now let me bring it back, We all know on foreign shores that they finance wars, but asks yourself do they finance yours. When i first got mine i took em out on tour, they only lost half the value when i took em out the store. Or it was full of moissanites and cubics but the jeweller knew i was stupid and that i couldnt prove it. Feeling like i need it because i do music, to impress the groupies and the interviewers. So i didnt appraise it, nor did i loop it, even gave em to my girl, thinkin i was cupid. Homies was all hate hoping they could make me lose it, creeping through my own hood knew i had to remove it. I see the Russian Mafia, the Jewish Mobsters, the undercover terrorists and the traps for the hustlers. Homie its a wrap for the nonsense rhyming, props to Kanye i call this Conflict Diamonds. This song was made to inform many people who do not know about the civil wars in other countries over the diamonds that make the jewelry that many people dream of owning. There are innocent men, women, and children who die everyday as a result of these wars and conflicts over diamonds and every time some one goes to the jewelry store to purchase a diamond they are helping this problem to continue indirectly.

When I was young, me and my mama had beef 17 years old kicked out on tha streets though back in tha time, I never thought I'd see her face ain't a woman alive that can take my mommas place suspended from school, scared ta go home I was a fool with tha big boys breaking all tha rules shed tears with my baby sister over tha years we wuz poorer than tha other little kids and even though we had different dadies tha same drama when things went wrong we blamed mama I reminised on tha stress I caused, it wuz hell hugg'en on my mama from a jail cell and who'ed think in elementry, heeeey i'd see tha penatentry One day running from tha Police, that's right Momma catch me--put a whoop'en to my backside and even as a crack fiend mama, ya always was a black queen mama I finally understand for a woman it ain't easy--trying ta raise a man ya always wuz commited, a poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it there's no way I can pay ya back but tha plan is ta show ya that I understand. you are appreciated Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya Ain't nobody tell us it wuz fair no luv for my daddy, cause tha coward wuzn't there he passed away and I didn't cry cause my anger, wouldn't let me feel for a stranger they say i'm wrong and i'm heartless but all along I wuz looking for a father-- he wuz gone I hung around with tha thug's and even though they sold drugs they showed a young brother luv I moved out and started really hang'in I needed money of my own so I started slang'in I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks It feels good, putting money in your mailbox I love paying rent when tha rents due I hope ya got tha diamond necklace that I sent to you cause when I wuz low, you was there for me ya never left me alone, cause ya cared for me and I can see ya coming home after work late ya in tha kitchen trying ta fix us a hot plate just working with tha scraps you wuz given and mama made miracles every Thanksgiving but now tha road got rough, your alone trying ta raise two bad kids on your own and there's no way I can pay ya back but my plan is ta show ya that I understand you are appreciated.....

Most are forced to live in the ghetto on welfare.Since there is no father figure around so the young man resorts to hangin with the older men in the streets and most times end up in prison becauseof the environment they are subjected to.

This proves that no one is different from the next person and nobody is better than anyone else because of how much we have in life.

15 Sing for the moment by eminem [Eminem] These ideas are, nightmares to white parents whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair and who likes earrings Like whatever they say has no bearing It's so scary in a house that allows, no swearing to see him walkin around with his headphones blaring Alone in his own zone, cold and he don't care He's a problem child, and what bothers him all comes out when he talks about, his fuckin dad walkin out Cause he just hates him so bad that he, blocks him out If he ever saw him again he'd probably knock him out His thoughts are whacked, he's mad so he's talkin back Talkin black, brainwashed from rock and rap He sags his pants; doo rags and a stockin cap His step-father hit him so he, socked him back and broke his nose, his house is a broken home There's no control, he just let's his emotions go [Chorus: Eminem] C'mon! Sing with me (Sing!) Sing for the year (Sing it) Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear (C'mon!) Sing it with me, Just for today Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away... [Eminem] Entertainment is changin, intertwinin with gangsters In the land of the killers a sinner's mind is a sanctum Holy or unnholy, only have one homie Only this gun - lonely cause don't anyone know me Yet everybody just feels like they can relate I guess words are a motherfucker, they can be great or they can degrate; or even worse, they can teach hate It's like these kids hang on every single statement we make like they worship us, plus all the stores ship us platinum Now how the fuck did this metamorphosis happen? From standin on corners and porches just rappin to havin a fortune, no more kissin ass But then these critics crucify you, journalists try to burn you Fans turn on you, attorneys all want a turn at you to get they hands on every dime you have They want you to lose your mind every time you mad So they can try to make you out to look like a loose cannon Any dispute won't hesitate to produce handguns That's why these prosecutors wanna convict me Strictly just to get me off of these streets quickly But all they kids be listenin to me religiously So I'm signin CD's while police fingerprint me They're for the judge's daughter but his grudge is against me If I'm such a fuckin menace this shit doesn't make sense B! It's all political, if my music is literal and I'm a criminal how the FUCK can I raise a little girl? I couldn't; I wouldn't be fit to You're full of shit too Guerrera - that was a FIST that hit you! [Chorus] [Eminem] They say music can alter moods and talk to you Well can it load a gun up for you and cock it too? Well if it can, and the next time you assault a dude Just tell the judge it was my fault, and I'll get sued See what these kids do is hear about us totin pistols and they want to get one cause, they think the shit's cool Not knowin we really just protectin ourselves We entertainers, of course the shit's affectin our sales You ignoramus, but music is reflection of self We just explain it, and then we get our checks in the mail It's fucked up ain't it? How we can come from practically nothin to bein able to have any fuckin thing that we wanted That's why we, sing for these kids who don't have a thing except for a dream and a fuckin rap magazine Who post pin-up pictures on they walls all day long Idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs Or for anyone who's ever been through shit in they lives 'Til they sit and they cry at night wishin they'd die 'Til they throw on a rap record and they sit and they vibe We're nothin to you - but we're the fuckin shit in they eyes That's why we, seize the moment try to freeze it and own it Squeeze it and hold it, cause we consider these minutes golden And maybe they'll admit it when we're gone, just let our spirits live on through our lyrics that you hear in our songs and we can... This song also discusses the issue of the influence music has on young people. He explains how the music can inspire young children who go through difficult times in their lives. He also says that musicians use their music to express themselves and how they feel and not a way to show young people the wrong way to live.

16 Can I live [Talking] Talking Ma I know the Situation is Personal But it something that has to be told As I was making this beat You was all I could think about you heard my voice [Verse 1] Yeah Just think Just Think What if you could Just Just blink your self away.. Just Just wait just pause for a second Let me plead my case It's the late 70's Huh You Seventeen huh And having me that will ruin everything huh It's alot of angels waiting on their wings You see me in your sleep so you cant kill your dreams 300 Dollars thats the price of living what? Mommy I dont like this clinic Hopefully you'll make the right decision And dont go through with the Knife incision But it's hard to make the right move When you in high school How you have to work all day and take night school Hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring What you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning [Chorus] I'll Always Be a part of you Trust Your Soul Know it's always true If I Could Talk I'd Say To You CAN I LIVE CAN I LIVE I'll Always Be a part of you Trust Your Soul Know it's always true If I Could Talk I'd Say To You CAN I LIVE CAN I LIVE [Verse 2] I am a child of the king Ain't no need to go fear me And I see the flowing tears so know that you hear me When I move in your womb that's me being scary Cause who knows what my future holds Yo the truth be told you ain't told a soul Yo you ain't even showing I'm just 2 months old Through your clothes try to hide me deny me Went up 3 sizes Your pride got you lying saying ain't nothing but a migraine It ain't surprising you not trying to be in Wic food lines Your friends will look at you funny but look at you mommy That's a life inside you look at your tummy What is becoming ma I am Oprah bound You can tell he's a star from the Ultrasound Our Sprits Connected Doors Open Now Nothing But Love And Respect Thanks For Holding Me Down She Let Me Live... [Chorus] I'll Always Be a part of you Trust Your Soul Know it's always true If I Could Talk I'd Say To You CAN I LIVE CAN I LIVE I'll Always Be apart of you Trust Your Soul Know it's always true If I Could Talk I'd Say To You CAN I LIVE CAN I LIVE [Repeat 2] [Nick Talking] It's uplifting foreal yall I ain't passing no judgement Ain't making no decisions I am just telling ya'll my story I love life I love my mother for giving me life We all need to appreciate life A strong woman that had to make a sacrifice Thanks for listening Thanks for listening Mama thanks for listening This song talks about the important issue of abortion. Many women who get pregnant at a young age are often faced with the decision of whether to give birth to their child or not. They are not financially stable enough to support themselves and a child at the same time so they use abortion as an alternative.

17 Hero by mariah carey Hmm There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you It's a long road When you face the world alone No one reaches out a hand For you to hold You can find love If you search within yourself And the emptiness you felt Will disappear And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you Oh oooh Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow But don't let anyone Tear them away, hey yeah Hold on There will be tomorrow In time You'll find the way And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you Mhhh That a hero lies in You In this song Mariah Carey inspires people to believe in themselves because you can do anything and you work through any problem if u have the correct mind state.

18 Video by india arie [Verse 1] Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t Depend of how the wind blows I might even paint my toes It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul [Chorus] I’m not the average girl from your video And I ain’t built like a supermodel But I learned to love myself unconditionally, Because I am a queen I not the average girl from your video My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes No matter what I’m wearing I will always be India.Arie [Verse 2] When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see [Chorus] [Verse 3] Am I less of a lady if I don’t where panty hose My momma said a lady ain’t what she wears but what she knows… But I’ve drawn the conclusion, it’s all an illusion Confusion’s the name of the game A misconception, a vast deception, Something got to change Now don’t be offended this is all my opinion Ain’t nothing that I’m saying law This is a true confession Of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with y'all So get in when you fit in Go on and shine Clear your mind Now’s the time Put your salt on the shelf Go on and love yourself ‘Cause everything’s gonna be alright [Chorus] [Out] Keep your fancy drink, and your expensive minks I don’t need that to have a good time Keep your expensive cars and your caviar All’s I need is my guitar Keep your crystal and your pistol I’d rather have a pretty piece of crystal Don’t need you silicone, I prefer my own What god gave me is just fine… This song talks to the men and women who have low self-esteem and who feel that they should look or act a particular way in order to be accepted by society. She is saying that you shouldn’t be afraid to be who you are and as long as you are happy with yourself the opinion of others shouldn’t matter.

Yea! This is another song expressing how people felt about the President after the Hurricane Katrina incident. This particular song comes from the view point of someone who is from New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina everyone felt like President Bush didn’t care for the people in the poor communities because of the lack of help that was sent after the hurricane and the lack of help to re-build the communities that were lost

20 White america by eminem Intro] America!! Hahaha! We love you! How many people are proud to be citizens of this beautiful country of ours? The stripes and the stars for the rights that men have died for to protect The women and men who have broke their necks for the freedom of speech the United States government has sworn to uphold.. (Yo, I want everybody to listen to the words of this song).. or so we're told [Eminem] I never woulda dreamed in a million years I'd see so many motherfuckin people, who feel like me Who share the same views and the same exact beliefs It's like a fuckin ARMY marchin in back of me So many lives I touched, so much anger aimed in no particular direction, just sprays and sprays And straight through your radio waves, it plays and plays 'til it stays stuck in your head, for days and days Who woulda thought; standin in this mirror bleachin my hair with some peroxide, reachin for a t-shirt to wear that I would catapult to the forefront of rap like this? How could I predict my words would have an impact like this? I must've struck a chord with somebody up in the office Cause Congress keep tellin me, I ain't causin nuthin but problems And now they're sayin I'm in trouble with the government - I'm lovin it! I shoveled shit all my life, and now I'm dumpin it on [Chorus 2X: Eminem] White America! I could be one of your kids White America! Little Eric looks just like this White America! Erica loves my shit I go to TRL; look how many hugs I get! [Eminem] Look at these eyes, baby blue, baby just like yourself If they were brown Shady lose, Shady sits on the shelf But Shady's cute, Shady knew Shady's dimples would help Make ladies swoon baby (ooh baby!) Look at my sales Let's do the math - if I was black, I woulda sold half I ain't have to graduate from Lincoln High School to know that But I could rap, so fuck school, I'm too cool to go back Gimme the mic, show me where the fuckin studio's at When I was underground, no one gave a fuck I was white No labels wanted to sign me, almost gave up I was like Fuck it - until I met Dre, the only one to look past Gave me a chance aand I lit a FIRE up under his ass Helped him get back to the top, every fan black that I got was probably his in exchange for every white fan that he's got Like damn; we just swapped - sittin back lookin at shit, wow I'm like my skin is it startin to work to my benefit now? It's.. [Chorus] [Eminem] See the problem is, I speak to suburban kids who otherwise woulda never knew these words exist Whose moms probably woulda never gave two squirts of piss 'til I created so much motherfuckin turbulence! Straight out the tube, right into your living rooms I came And kids flipped, when they knew I was produced by Dre That's all it took, and they were instantly hooked right in And they connected with me too because I looked like them That's why they put my lyrics up under this microscope Searchin with a fine tooth comb, it's like this rope waitin to choke; tightenin around my throat Watchin me while I write this, like I don't like this (Nope!) All I hear is: lyrics, lyrics, constant controversy, sponsors working round the clock to try to stop my concerts early, surely Hip-Hop was never a problem in Harlem only in Boston After it bothered the fathers of daughters startin to blossom So now I'm catchin the flack from these activists when they raggin Actin like I'm the first rapper to smack a bitch or say faggot, shit! Just look at me like I'm your closest pal The posterchild, the motherfuckin spokesman now for.. [Chorus] [Outro] So to the parents of America I am the derringer aimed at little Erica to attack her character The ringleader of this circus of worthless pawns Sent to lead the march right up to the steps of Congress and piss on the lawns of the White House To burn the {flag} and replace it with a Parental Advisory sticker To spit liquor in the faces of this democracy of hypocrisy Fuck you Ms. Cheney! Fuck you Tipper Gore! Fuck you with the free- est of speech this Divided States of Embarrassment will allow me to have Fuck you! This song is about the Government trying to censor the content of rap songs even though the first amendment guarantees us the freedom of speech. Many people accuse rap artists of influencing violence and crime among the youth in America. The rap artists argue that they have a freedom of speech and it is the responsibility of the parents to raise their children and monitor the music they listen to.
