HK:
WE FOUGHT TO GET OFF THE SLAVE YARD
NOW WE FIGHT TO GET US A GREEN CARD
WHY DO WE WORK FOR THIS STUFF SO HARD?
HOW U LIVING AND YOU WORKING GRAVE YARD?


STAND FOR DAYS
AT THE AMERICAN CONSULATE
THEY'RE RUNNING LATE
PUSH BACK YOR INTERVIEW DATE
SO YOU WON'T STAY
THEY ASK FOR A BANK STATE
MEANT TO BRING ONE
FORGOT
NOW THEY CLOSE GATES
BILS AIN'T PAID
MONEY SPENT ON VISA FEES
YOU CRYING
LANDLADY STANDING VIS A VIS
CEST LA VIE MON AMIS
ASK UNCLE KOFI
MAYBE HE'S GOT CONNECTIONS AT THE EMBASSY
USED TO BE WITH THIS LADY FROM TENNESSEE
IF SHE SAYS THE WORD
HELLO NYC
IMMIGRATION OFFICER SAYS
"THIS IS JFK
HOW LONG U PLAN TO STAY IN THE USA?"
TILL YOU GET REAL RICH
BUT YOU SAY 30 DAYS
SHE KNOWS YOU LYING
BUT THERE'S NOTHING THAT SHE CAN SAY
GRANTS YOU ENTRY
FINGERPRINTS
YOU SAY CHEESE
NOW FREEZE IN YOUR SHORTS SLEEVES IN THEIR 30 DEGREES

UH OH UH OH
NO POCKET MONEY
CAN'T CALL HOME TO ASK MOMMY OR DADDY
SEE THEY USED ALL THEY HAD ON YOUR PLANE FARE
SO TO RUN GAME ON THEM WON'T BE PLAYING FAIR
WHATEVER! "MAMA DADA! AM OUT OF CASH!"
"AND SO WHAT? GET A DAMN JOB! GET OFF YOUR ASS!
WE EXPECTING A RETURN ON INVESTMENT"
"AND UNCLE KOFI SAID YOU SHOULD START TO PAY RENT!"
DD D D DD D DAMN!
DD D D DD D DAMN!
CAN'T GET A JOB WITHOUT SOCIAL SECURITY
A FRIEND TAKES PITY SAYS
"USE MA I.D"
"THANKS, BUT UM.. I DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU
AND I'M 6 FOOT
YOUR ID SAYS 5'2"
SO I GET I'LL JUST GET PAID UNDER TABLE
WONDER WHATS ON TV
OH NO CABLE!!

CULTURE SHOCK
NO ONE'S REALLY FRIENDLY
'SPECIALLY IF U DON'T DRIVE A BENTLEY
IF U A HUSSLA GO ON THEN JAY-Z
U'LL FIND A WAY TO SELL HONEY TO BEES
TO BE LEGAL YE YE'VE GOT TO MARRY
OR UH UH U COULD JOIN THE NAVY
BUT U DON'T WANT TO KILL IRAQIS
CUZ LIFE IS WORTH MORE THAN SOME CAR KEYS
SO I GUESS U'VE GOT LIMITED OPTIONS
CUZ UNCLE SAM DON'T DO ADOPTION
N'LESS U A BASKETBALL OR SOCCER STAR
FOOTBALLER, AHA AFEN NA WO KASA
COULD B A SUPERSTAR LIKE FLOETRY
BUT OF COURSE U WOULD NEED DOPE POETRY
SO GET U 10 GRAND & HOLLA "WUT IT DO!?"
MEET ME DOWNTOWN MAMI & SAY I DO

HK 4X

KIL-LI-LING!
SOME ONE IS CALLING YOU
HOMELAND SECURITY INTERVIEW
BUT UM!
THE CITIZEN IS IN A BAD MOOD
SHE AND HER SIGNIFICANT OTHER ARGUED
"HELL NAW I AIN'T GOING NOWHERE WITH YOU
N'LESS YOU BUY ME SOME NEW CLOTHES AND SHOES!"
DD D D DD D DAMN!
"WHAT?!"
OK OK OK OK MA'AM...
GREEN CARD APPLICATION APPROVED
YOUR LIFESTYLE HAS EVEN IMPROVED
BUT YOU FAR REMOVED
FROM COMMUNITY
CULTURE IS TO CONSUME
BUY SECURITY
ALARM SYSTEM
BUT IT IS WATCHING YOU
LIKE TV
REMOTE CONTROLLING YOU
THEN 1 DAY YOU REMEMBER WHY YOU CAME HERE
TO MAKE SOME MONEY GO HOME AND SHARE!!
