As the excepted the offer we noticed that we all had the same vision in mind and that was to create noise! We wanted to make a change in our music community and bring unity instead of division. There are two teams’ tw...o different beats Shout out to Hamsqaud and Moe Beats for also joining the project. We really hope that we are able to change the views of the city and help stopping the violence. We are all affected by what is going on in the world in some way.

YouTube Video: "My Skin Is My Sin"

Produced by Brian France


End the war on black lives at the hand of a violent law enforcement and injustice system that does not value the humanity of African America's and other people of color




The IGive featuring David Emanuel Comedian
 “My Skin Is My Sin”
 Released: 2016




 Free flowing hemoglobin red colored stream of flowing
 Blood like a river, Hands on ID to show him
 Because he asked, tight gripped trigger finger blowing
 Licensed to carry, but it’s scary ‘cause a negus’ holding gats
 He’s a Black, bad raps is all he be knowing
 Past! We can’t get passed that, Profit prison quota
 It is noted paramilitary; I mean policy ordinary (to)
 Kill a brother, Pain I’m bearing and it’s visceral
 I must demand justice now, what you waiting for?!
 Black and Black out loud, what you hating for?!
 I’m a “stand my ground”, what you praying for
 If you ain’t gonna act?! I can’t take no more
 Fake as conversations when you act so confrontational
 Privileged and you ignore the advantages you’re taking of
 You slander me on TV, ‘cause really you want to be me
 I will believe our lives matter to you when you stand up with me
 But you mock me to my face, Race is not split fifty-fifty
 (We) ain’t on even ground and I mean it now, you gon’ hear me
 I’m a Black man, Asiatic crown end your tyranny
 Organize the crowd, that’s a movement!
 No longer sit and wait for approval
 You told me “comply or die” for refusal
 Only one side that is right I am choosing
 Black and aboriginal, Nappy headed lyrical
 Scrappy Abernathy, Martin Luther, Malcolm Little flow
 X’ing out your hashtags, true and living water flow
 Sweeter than the berry ‘cause I’m rocking with a darker flow
 My patience is ending here quickly
 May justice rush rivers as swiftly
 Before hot heads respond with vengeances
 I’m pissed off, now my rocket engine is lifting
 You think my skin is my sin so you kill me
 I’m (a) hell bound biting hell hound with the fury
 And wrath of a war angel, fuck a halo
 I’ve laid low but now I say no more of you killing us
 Really ‘cause, we face real injustice and still conduct
 Business with you, peaceful as a dove, but I feel my cup
 Running over while you hunt my soldiers and you kill your own
 Throw the blame back on me to feel hopeless, but I’m not alone
 Time is running out so I got to go
 You may kill my body, but I still got soul
 I still got soul
 Black Power
 Black Love Matters
 Black Lives Matter
 Love Wins After
