Coltrane coming downstairs after two-weeks
King going up the mountain and dreaming as he speaks
Miles saying, 'So What', 'Kinda Blue'
Malcolm, By Any Means Necessary seeing it through
Michael Jackson getting Off the Wall for a Thriller
Ali's Ropa Dope and Thrilla in Manila
Hank banging the big 715
Prince's Sign O' the Times in Purple Rain it seems
Your work is yours, so get on up and complete your earthly chores
Hansberry's Raisin In the Sun
Langston's Dreams to Mother to Son
Charles Glass perfecting the human body
Doug E Fresh and La-Di Da-Di
Dr. Sebi professing the essence of sea moss
Dr. Cress-Welsing releasing The ISIS Papers like a queen boss
B.B. thrilling 'Sweet Lucille'
Oscar Micheaux getting real with the reel
Oooh! When I say your work is yours.....
You best be getting up and completing your earthly chores
