Wait a minute, slow down
We can go later
We can go lay down
We can go way up

Madri sh3abalik
But I use my second language so all of y’all understand us eeh
Came from the desert akhi
Drilling for oil
The pollution has got us smokin’
The news made all the immigrants move
And now the world is watching
Arab with an attitude dressed like Qadaffi
Asalaam Alaykum like Muhammad Ali
Me and my brother we’re like Shaq and Kobe
Tell em’ where we come from
They Islamaphobic
You got Wiz Khalifa, Mia Khalifa, but no caliphates
They only wanna check my bags
Muslim on the plane
Even when I’m grocery shoppin’ I’m still a target man
They label me a boogie man then they make a Muslim ban, damn
I’m not a terrorist I’m a tourist
Soon as they find out I’m an Arab they start jumping to conclusions Hand me the bag Fauré Le Page
Just got back from Hajj feel like Malik Shabazz

Wait a minute, slow down
We can go later
We can go lay down
We can go way up

Walking the block with a bop cause I’m caught in the beat
Old lady clutching her pearls so watch her crossing the street
This black power so awesome to see
My man’s sister got em switching up
These coon ass n****s see em bitchin’ up
Respectability don’t stop a cop who wanna shoot
They killed Martin Luther in his civil rights suit
The ego has an appetite for it’s own version of the truth
Your absence of evidence not proof
These bars is empirical and harder than a criminal
Far sided bubble never subtle or subliminal
These artists is far too cynical to be spiritual
You don’t really get it though your thinking never critical
Strong man arguments
Dissonance is cognitive
These consequences require fixes like Ray Donovan
I never use the language of oppressors and the conquerors
A task tell the tales of a crime like eastern promises

Wait a minute, slow down
We can go later
We can go lay down
We can go way up
