Uncle Sam Goddamn - Brother Ali

Uncle Sam Goddamn

The Undisputed Truth
Hip-Hop political rap brother ali hip hop


Brother Ali was put under pressure from the recording industry due the lyrics, claiming creative interference from "somebody I don't wanna name, but some of you probably has they cell phones." The unnamed corporation ultimately withdrew its sponsorship of Ali, causing him to truncate parts of his current tour.Furthermore, on the song "Second Time Around" with Benzi and Wale, Ali makes references to being kicked off a tour followed by the line "Verizon dissed me too, cuz I was too political." The song is notably critical of the United States government, with accusations that the political system is addicted to war. Lyrics Ah, The name of this song is uncle sam goddamn It's a show tune but the show aint been written for it yet. Were gonna see if tony Jerome and the band can maybe work this shit out for me And straighten me out right quick I like it so far man Yeah Come on, lets go Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grand imperial guard where the dollar is sacred Come on lets do this shit for real now Smoke and mirrors, stripes and stars Stoner for the cross in the name of god Bloodshed, genocide, rape and fraud Written to the pages of the law, good lord The (inaudible) and latch key child Ran away one day and started acting vile King of where the wild things are, daddy's proud Cause the roman empire done passed it down Imported and tortured the work force They never healed the wounds or shook the curse off Now the grown up goliath nation Holdin open auditions for the part of david, can you feel? Nothing can save you, you question the rain You get rushed in and chained up fists raised but I must be insane Cause I cant figure a single goddamn way to change it Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god We all must bow to the fact were lazy The fuck you obey me and why do you hate me Only two generations away from the Worlds most despicable slavery trade Pioneered so many ways to degrade a human being That it cant be chains to this day Legacy so ingrained in the way that we think We don't need to wear chains to be slaves Lord that's a sinful display The overseers even got raped along the way Cause the children cant escape from the pain And theyre born with the pores and this hatred in their veins Try and separate a man from his soul Youll only strengthen him and lose your own Well shoot that fucker if he walk near the throne Remind him that this is my home (now im gone) Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred Hold up, gimme one right here You don't give money to the bums On the corner with a sign, bleeding from their gums Talking about you don't support a crackhead What you think happens to the money from yo' taxes Shit the governments an addict With a billion dollar a week kill brown people habit And even if you aint on the front line When the master yell crunch time you right back at it You aint look at how you hustling backwards And the end of the year add up what they subtracted 3 outta twelve months your salary Paid for that madness, man that's sadness Whats left get a big ass plasma To see where they made dan rather point the damn camera Only approved questions get answered Now stand your ass up for that national anthem Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god [instrumental break] Custom made, the consumer news Keep saying we're free But were all just blue

Uncle Sam Goddamn - Brother Ali

Ah, The name of this song is uncle sam goddamn
It's a show tune but the show aint been written for it yet.
Were gonna see if tony Jerome and the band can maybe work this shit out for me
And straighten me out right quick I like it so far man
Yeah Come on, lets go
Welcome to the united snakes
Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grand imperial guard where the dollar is sacred
Come on lets do this shit for real now
Smoke and mirrors, stripes and stars
Stoner for the cross in the name of god
Bloodshed, genocide, rape and fraud
Written to the pages of the law, good lord

E me
Only two generations away from the Worlds most despicable slavery trade
Pioneered so many ways to degrade a human being
That it can't be chains to this day
Legacy so ingrained in the way that we think
We don't need to wear chains to be slaves
Lord that's a sinful display
The overseers even got raped along the way
Cause the children can't escape from the pain
And they're born with the pores and this hatred in their veins
Try and separate a man from his soul
You'll only strengthen him and lose your own
Well shoot that fucker if he walk near the throne
Remind him that this is my home (now I'm gone)
Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave
Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred
And power is god
Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred Hold up, gimme one right here You don't give money to the bums On the corner with a sign, bleeding from their gums Talking about you don't support a crackhead What you think happens to the money from yo' taxes shit the governments an addict With a billion dollar a week kill brown people habit And even if you aint on the front line When the master yell crunch time you right back at it You aint look at how you hustling backwards And the end of the year add up what they subtracted 3 outta twelve months your salary Paid for that madness, man that's sadness what's left get a big ass plasma To see where they made dan rather point the damn camera Only approved questions get answered Now stand your ass up for that national anthem Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god Welcome to the united snakes Land of the thief, home of the slave Grant imperial guard where the dollar is sacred And power is god [instrumental break] Custom made, the consumer news Keep saying we're free But were all just blue
