Conversation with Crack

Crack on my corner but its grown overseas Grown in South America and made from cocca leaves From overseas to the corner from the corner to my house momma using daddy using when will he get out? He stuck around for years and showed me what he was all about He gave me a history lesson as we sat on my couch I asked him, how many other homes did he invade? He said "far too many to even count" Then I asked him, how much is made off of you? He said "a large amount" Then he went on to say he was sponsored by political clout And its because the Regan Administration had an agenda to fight a cause that made us look like losers instead of winners All because he despised the Nicaraguan group Sandinistas Because they were not built on capitalism but instead had socialist features And supported guerrillas in El Salvador So on Nov 23 1981 they initiated war It was secret and such a covert operation The public didn't know that much The CIA recruited contras that were trained and funded by us at around 19 million thats hush Aid was interrupted by the Boland Amendment that forbid action by U.S. agencies funding the cause So Regan and his administration pulled down their draws and pissed on the laws And started acquiring funds from trading guns thats firing Funds from the drug trade was supplying them And now we got kilos of coke thats flying in Distrubted to the dealers,they cook crack your parents buying them It started an epidemic to fund a cause And now the ball is rolling There is no pause So I pause You could get mad at the dealers but cocca leaves don't grow in L.A. And you could get mad at the crips for shooting bloods but you have to wonder "Where did they get those Ak's" There are dealers,behind the dealer Shooters behind the shooter In your house you see two addicts but there is a bigger supplier supporting the users
