    I’m not a thug, net or otherwise
    I walk around personifying me never any other guy
    I ain’t got no gats, glocks, pieces, and I’m not strapped
    I pack my intellect, knowledge and experience on my back
    There are no bodies on my gun because the shit don’t exist
    I’m not iced out, I don’t even have a swatch watch on my wrist
    I’m not hating on those that keep it gangsta
    I’m keep it real by counseling youngsters
    I represent by working towards my PhD
    There is just as much power in a philosophical degree
    You never hear me saying the n-word
    To equate it with love is largely absurd
    I don’t wear timbos cause I can’t afford those shits
    I’m really poor and really only have like 35 cents
    My ancestors caught the same whips yours did
    So remember that when you want to hate on the kid
    This is about you elevating your mind
    Don’t judge me because I don’t let your parameters govern my mind
    I create the limitations that I exist within all the time
    I asked you before, so what you a thug and you hard, that ain’t got shit to do with me
    Your skin tone is the only thing that makes you blacker than me
    You talking shit but the air only makes you flammable
    I spit flames and you caustic, so don’t end up wishing you weren’t combustible
    I’m not that guy, read the last 22 lines
    I’m not that guy, Fuck your racial guidelines

    I definently liked this shit....but it seems like it belongs in the Open Mic forum, people will accept it more there, try posting there and see the difference.

    people cant possibly see someone that hasnt shared themselves with that person..

    so why do they think they know you?
    i dont know...that bothers me as well...

    why does ignorance pop up so much over understanding?
    i wish i could provide an answer...
    but to me,i use that as motivation...
    when someone tries to put me down...i hop right back up..
    they cant downplay heart,period
