We Kings 03:17
Crowns Chains Rings Belts Furs Schemes War Paint (Shine all my) Swords Queens (Shine all my rubies) We Kings (All my rubies) We Kings (Gotta make sure they’re glistening) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) Crowns Shine all my rubies Gotta make sure they’re glistening Like in all the movies Gold don’t get old And that’s all there’s to it So you better make sure you’re listening To who is the truest We Kings and that’s what we’ll always be Yeah We Kings and that’s what we’ll always be And we’ll keep making history Ye-ea-ea-ea-ah Offset the economy!!! Fvck the institution Just ‘cause I gave away so much gold "Who am I?" Mansa Musa The King of All Kings My melanin on your conscious My princess named Scota Derived the country of Scotland No traces of Moor You can't truly be Samurai Gave other countries our culture It’s only right we got Santa Ties Saint Nicholas Mister Magnificent What more do you want in a Moor? Our origins and descendents We walk on water Conquerors in our own right Crucified but we resurrect Sit next to GOD for your insight Against all odds We studied as Gods Check the kinky hair on Buddha That's not a mirage We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my rubies) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) Gotta vibrate higher Get in tune with the parts they don’t see Align philosophies with the ancestors That developed monarchies It’s time to Channel the military mind of Hannibal Activate the Pineal Gland So we can obtain what was once intangible Re-conquer air sea and land We’re bigger than claiming territory we don’t own Living for a block to rep We were the world’s first architects And advanced the medical field like Imhotep Time to utilize our influence And take full advantage of our platforms If you see another King succeed Edify him and clap for him Step into the mind of Marcus Garvey Unify under one banner One aim One mission All it takes is one to stand up Return to former glory Show the world as beings we are supreme And from now through all eternity They’ll remember that We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my rubies) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) We Kings (Shine all my) Crowns

What if? Man what if? What if I just go now? What if there’s a world Where all we see is new What if having the throne Was something more for you I mean This was all I wanted when I wanted it But when you carry it all You’re bound to get tired of flaunting it When I’m standing on the shore with the ocean view Man all they see in blue I see everything I haven’t seen in Timbuktu I wanna take a ride To the other side I gotta go Bruh I gotta know What if I told you there was more to life than gold? I mean Would you hear me? Would you cheer me on? (Would you cheer me on?) When I leave (When I leave) We gone make history Are you ready to be the new King? Musa! Man this mystery I mean it’s killing me Questioned if it was meant to be I mean initially Of sound mind and even braver hearts Our hunger for the unknown tore our worlds part Griots time to break the seal of silence Voyager King the King of Kings Yep Your Highness You told me Watch the Throne I got me Yeezus on The abdication what the Griots set their Grievance on The Abdication Made us King of Two Nations The Pushing of the lines Pushed us closer to greatness We made it to America Man it’s beautiful Griots time to break the seal of silence The Abdication Made us King of Two Nations The Pushing of the line Pushed us closer to greatness And brother I am proud of ya I need you to know You held it down You held it down You held it down Throughout all of my travels I’ve seen a recurring theme Of Men who have become fixated on their Aspirations of being King But not with Abubakari Who painted his vision and made it clear And set out with 1,000 ships Across what was then the final frontier A man of unlimited resources who couldn’t ignore the voices The open seas were calling him steadily Conquering them should be his legacy So never guaranteeing his return He left a flourishing kingdom And so began the reign of Musa Who was chosen to lead them But even in caravans across miles of burning sands No trip was more important than the journey of discovering the inner man A thousand pilgrimages can’t amount to how real it is To step into your passion To see the real you The one behind the mask And to finally understand the power you have within your own hands After training your mind to be in tune with the divine Knowing that your final destination won’t ask for a passport But you must self identify See your future Then reach out and grab for it I’m Abubakari Abubakari II I came here in 1312 I sailed the ocean blue Call me Mansa Musa I’m from The Motherland Richest man period Of any period I’m Abubakari Abubakari II I came here in 1312 I sailed the ocean blue Call me Mansa Musa I’m from The Motherland Richest man period Of any period I’m Abubakari Abubakari II I came here in 1312 I sailed the ocean blue Call me Mansa Musa I’m from The Motherland Richest man period Of any period I’m Abubakari Abubakari II I came here in 1312 I sailed the ocean blue Call me Mansa Musa I’m from The Motherland Richest man period Of any period
