the experience lyrics – goodie mob

yeah, better believe that slick
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha yeah
i thought you said you was the g-o-d
sound like another n*gg*r to me, ha ha, yeah
i thought you said you was the g-o-d
sound like another n*gg*r to me, sh*t
what a n*gg*r do, what a n*gg*r does
and a n*gg*r is what a n*gg*r was
and a n*gg*r done read history but yet his eyes didn’t see
the only reason you a n*gg*r is because somebody else wants you to be
well a n*gg*r uneducated, intergrated, singin’ “we shall overcome”
a n*gg*r trying to be white is what a n*gg*r seem like have become
and when they call me a n*gg*r to my face’
can’t do nothin’ but walk away
but here it is n*gg*rs call other n*gg*rs n*gg*rs each and every day
dividing and conquering
when they say the lighter shade of black is okay
after the middle cl*ss and they p*ssin’ by
the project land where we stay
since a n*gg*r had got grown, had a little bitty of n*gg*r of my own
should’ve known i couldn’t show ’em no better what i was showin’
sh*t, i could’ve hit the club as fresh as i could be
really, all for another n*gg*r to see
you know how a n*gg*r get when he see another n*gg*r outfit
don’t want n*body to have what he ain’t got
somebody get drunk, get mad, and get shot
that why the property value ain’t no good in a n*gg*r neihborhood
a n*gg*r could overstand if he only understood
i’m sick of lyin’ i’m sick of glorifyin’ dyin’
i’m sick of not trying, sh*t i’m sick of being a n*gg*r
destiny sent me to this dread and she said she felt led
to offer me some wisdom from this notebook she read
and it said that right then the black man’s downfall
was not know that we were not ever n*gg*rs at all, hmm
and she looked deeply into my eyes and said brother don’t you know
you complain about being black,
when they mad coz they can’t be black no mo’
so many black men out here trying to be n*gg*rs
keeping it real to the point that they dying to be n*gg*rs
when in actuality the fact is you ain’t a n*gg*r because you black
you a n*gg*r cause of how you act
but, you don’t want me to tell you the truth, so i’ma lie to you
make it sound fly to you huh, huh,
you don’t wanna hear the truth, so i’ma lie to you
make it sound fly to you, sh*t
the n*gg*r experience
the n*gg*r experience
has been stated, it was created
the n*gg*r experience
