Maglera Doe Boy Memoirs Lyrics

I write
These memoirs for my soul
I write
These memoirs for my woes
I fight
My demons and my foes
That’s why my eyes
Impure from blood and gold

Young n***** from the block
Came up in the projects
With my scammers and some robbers
Can’t forget my Vatos
The bodega was the Casa
Trigga hit the celli like “Que pasa?”
Slum dogs from Azania
Yelling out “Viva la rasa “
Smoking Yanga pack
Ya rasa
Young Moolie with Mullatos
Just a Moor from the sewers I manoeuvred with the ghouls and the goblins
We just want to eat the lobster
Fettuccine with the pasta
Young Doe Boy dreamt of being a Guido now he moving like a mobster
This is Basquiat
Picasso
This is Phantom of the Opera
Conversations with the paupers became compositions I need me an Oscar
In the ghetto I’m a saviour I’m walking on water and spitting the gospel
In the ghetto ducking Judas and the Devil that’s why I speak like a prophet

I write
These memoirs for my soul
I write
These memoirs for my woes
I fight
My demons and my foes
That’s why my eyes
Impure from blood and gold

Whatever power you are craving
It will not change what you are
The least of us…
You came to us from the gutter
Your ability gave you station
But all the power in the world can’t mask the stench beneath…

The pain of the people
