In 1992 I wrote and recorded an anti-racist rap titled “THE DECLARATION OF MISREPRESENTATION”. This was 4 years before I became an animal liberation activist. G SPOT was my rap name, and that is me with long, auburn locks! I spent $5,000, my life savings at the time, to record three songs for a rap demo. Mikey Wilder and The Funky Bass Team (FBT) did the music and the mixing! FBT originally worked with Eminem way back in the day, and they definitely made the right choice by focusing their efforts on him instead of me. HA! Although, I must say, this track (and the other two which I might release soon) are pretty fucking cool!

Lyrics:
HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN THE RIGHTS OF A MINORITY
WHEN THE GOVERNMENT’S RULED BY THE MAJORITY
WELL CHECK IT OUT CUZ I’M GONNA TELL IT THROUGH HISTORY
CUZ EVEN NOWADAYS IT DON’T MAKE SENSE TO ME
WASHINGTON WAS THE FATHER OF OUR COUNTRY
BUT HE OWNED SLAVES AND SOLD SLAVES FOR MONEY
THE NATION WAS BLIND THOUGH AND FULL OF HOSTILITY
PUT HIS FACE ON A DOLLAR BILL TO FRAME HIS LONGEVITY
THEN THOMAS JEFFERSON WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT
PEOPlE DIDN’T KNOW IT EITHER BUT HE TOO HAD SERVANTS
IN 1776 HE WROTE THE DECLARATION
THE DECLARATION OF MISREPRESENTATION
CLAIMIN THE IDEALS CAME STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
NOTHIN BUT OLD MASTER JEFFERSON STRAIGHT FROM THE START
MAYBE J SHOULD OF CHECKED HIS OWN BILL
CUZ I THOUGHT IT SAID ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

NOW 1857 WAS THE TIME
A SUPREME COURT DECISION THAT CONFUSED THE MIND
DRED SCOTT WAS A BLACK SLAVE TAKEN TO MISSOURI
NORTH 36-30 SO HE SHOULD OF BEEN FREE
THE RULING ON THE CASE SHOULD OF BEEN EMANCIPATION
BUT THE CASE TURNED INTO AN ABOMINATION
THEY SAID THE COMPROMISE WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
A STEP BACK INSTEAD OF EVOLUTIONAL
THEY SAID IT WASN’T CREATED FOR BLACK PEOPLE
BUT I THOUGHT IT SAID ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

SOMETIMES THINGS REALLY BUG ME
LIKE WHY DOES LIFE HAVE TO BE SO GOD DAMN UGLY
I TURN ON THE NEWS AND ALL I SEE IS BULLSHIT
IT MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH TO WATCH IT
NOT ONLY THE MURDERERS THE STEALIN AND HUSTLIN
BUT THE MOTHER FUCKIN GOVERNMENT’S FULL OF CORRUPTION
THEY LOOT THE S AND L’S IT’S ONLY CALLED UNETHICAL
GET SLAPPED ON THE WRIST BUT NEVER SIT IN A JAIL CELL
BUT WHEN THEY LOOT SOUTH CEN1RAL LOS ANGElES
THEY LABELED ‘EM ANARCHISTS THIEVES AND TERRORISTS

PASS THE LAWS SO WE CAN MAKE ‘EM LEGITIMATE
CANT TRUST THE HOUSE NEVER TRUSTED THE PRESIDENT
THE GOVERNMENT HUH CAN YA TELL ME WHO’S RUNNIN IT
WHY CLIMB THE LADDER AND WATCH YOURSELF GET SHOVED FROM IT
YOU SEE I’M STATIN THAT EVERYBODY’S KIN TO ME
NEVER HAD A PROBLEM SO NOBODY OFFEND ME
DON’T GOT TIME FOR RACISM AND BIGOTRY
STAND UP FOR MY BROTHERS AND FIGHT FOR EQUALITY
