My Stereo...
By The Golden Child

My stereo...
Is stuck on songs by Public Enemy and NWA...

NWA - Niggaz With Attitude...
Thats how I feel everyday.

Don't ask me why...
You can just turn on the tube and see how they portray...

Blacks, latinos and asians formulated in stereotypes,
Because we couldn't be entertaining...
In any other way...

Kids grow up viewing this,
The cycle begins anew...
Generations further left astray...

I guess I'm supposed to follow this
And not challenge what I see..
Cloud myself by their visions
And accept invisibility...

But... what about the words of Chuck D...
And NWA...

I let the song play...

"Express Yourself"

And play...

"Fuck Tha Police"

And play...

"911 is a Joke"


"Bring The Noise"

And play...

"Don't Believe The Hype"

And play...

"Shut Em Down"

And play...

Public Enemy...

If I was to listen to the system...
I'd be "typed" to using a gat and letting my lead spray...

Instead, I use something more powerful...

A pencil...

Words hit harder that way.

"Fight the Power"

Comments: This poetry piece happened on a drive into work on April 1 2005... later, this hot artist by the name of Justin aka stepped into Deviant Art scene and joined up to my whole VADA crew ... it was only natural that two titans should collab and this is the result...

Nice. An everyman look at the shadow-meanings that flavour our world, that too many ignore.
