پیش 6 سال

Joyner spent 15 hours putting this visual together and there was no shortage of footage to weave into this powerful visual for his song. Unfortunately available footage could go on for years. Regardless, it is no easier to watch for its regularity. Welcome friends, to the land of the free and the home of the brave. Aren't you proud? Be on the lookout for the upcoming project “Along Came Joyner” coming soon. For more info check out RealJoynerLucas.com

Thank you for bringing awareness to innocent lives, being ruined by hate mongers and persons insisting on using violence and abuse, to subjugate people. It's a sad reality when a woman can be blamed for something she had nothing to do with, while America watches like its entertainment. It's time for people to grow up and not blame hip-hop for everything negative. A lot of hip-hop artists are speaking out for justice, with music. We all have, as artists, and need to continue to work towards better more loving relationships and friendships. Thank you Joyner and Izo for your musical contributions. - Pronounced Love

Lyrics Don't Shoot" Dear America By the system I was raised The same system that enslaved us and took us all away The same same system I was trained to put my hands across my heart and pledge allegiance to the grave The same system that made me sing the national anthem While the fucking flag hanged The same system that'll claim innocent lives Barack ain't made shit change Nigga fuck this shit, I won't budge! Shit, I won't budge They say Rosa Parks was sitting on the wrong bus And now that Malcolm X is gone, I guess it's on us Fuck a cop, they gon' kill us then they charge us They gon' charge us Put that fucking badge out and say it's all love But I got six warning shots to my heart, lungs, face, neck, cough blood Now they say we all thugs I guess we all thugs Ever since the Watts Riots, motherfuckers wanna try us Everything was all quiet til they crossed us Al Sharpton keep on talking, nigga do something! Nigga prove something So much drama, I just got the fucking goosebumps Word down to Ferguson, they murderin' the youth young What the fuck is new, son This shit gon' make me lose some'n This a war we won't back down Fuck this country, we ain't treated fair I should burn the fucking flag down Yeah, I should burn the fucking flag down But your victims lash out, they have no clue But if I protest, a nigga'll put me in a stretcher Gun me down with my hands up screamin' "DON'T SHOOT!" Motherfucker, don't shoot! By the system I was raised The same system that just killed Mike Brown the other day The same system that just slayed Sean Bell, Trayvon, Eric Garner, what a shame! The same system that gon' lie just to cover up the crime, quick to send us to the grave The same system that'll claim innocent lives Barack ain't made shit change Nigga, fuck this shit, I won't budge! Shit, I won't budge They say Emmitt Till whistled at the wrong slut And now that Martin Luther gone, I guess it's on us Fuck the cops, they gon' kill us then they charge us They gon' charge us Put that fucking badge out, leave a nigga passed out CLAP PLOW twenty shots to my heart, lungs, face, neck, cough blood All they do is cross us Living in the projects, and we all thugs Now they searchin' through my pockets Wanna treat me like a hostage Tryna get inside my conscious like a broad does If they catch me lookin' wrong, I'm a rebel though If I got my hoodie on, I'm a criminal If I got my hands up, that means I probably got a weapon If they kill me, then I guess that means that it was an exception This a war we won't back down And tell the government to kiss my ass I should burn the fucking flag down Yeah, I should burn the fucking flag down We were forced to surrender, they have no clue But if I protest, a nigga'll put me in a stretcher Gun me down with my hands up screamin' "DON'T SHOOT!" Motherfucker, don't shoot!

I gotta be honest on this conversation. I am a former cop. I tried it and tried to make a difference. But the police is corrupt as fuck. This coming from one. I was a cop for 7 years until I was forced to quit, because I wouldn't bend to that crooked ass job. Lot of truth in this track. So here's my story. I was a troublemaker coming up and got arrested twice. My last arrest I got a choice.....join the military or jail. Guess what I choose. I joined the army and became a military cop (MP) as a criminal conviction sentence. I did 8 years and got out from PTSD due to an ied hitting my truck. I was the one survivor and had survival guilt. So the army wouldn't let me reenlist. So I got out and became a civilian cop. Did some years there and transferred to a new department. Well, any time you go to a new Department u gotta do ride alongs when u start. So i, being a cop for over 15 years (military and civilian) had to ride with a new rookie Fto(field training officer). He had been a cop for a year and a half, applies for fto school and I became his very first trainee. This dude plants drugs on some guy one night and gets me fired, because I reported him to the chief. When I say he planted drugs on the guy, it more complicated than it sounds. The offer actually found a dime bag of marijuana on him which is a misdemeanor ticket where I work. But the officer ripped open the bag and repackaged it into 3 separate bags so he could charge the guy with a felony. He was charged with pwisd (premeditated with intent to sell and deliver). The chief told me, "he trust his officers over trainees and that is just how they do things here. I can either conform or leave." I immediately told him I quit. Now I do woodworking, hence the name woodchuck. So I tend to side with the criminals more than the cops, because I know how crooked they are. Now you are the first person I've ever told my story to. Hope u learned something. I posted this because I feel like you would be one person who would listen. Now I sit here bumping mgk smoke and drive and thinking about my life. And i just realize I agree with you 100 percent. This song hit me deep. I love it....this song makes me be able to say what i feel on the subject of police brutality. I'm listening this again......and again.....and singing "i should burn a flag down". It feels like u made this track for me. I love it.

This the first song i ever heard by joyner i wanna say i saw it was advertised on facebook n i only gave it a chance because it mentioned he was from worcester which isnt too far from me n i still remember wishin to myself that someone like him would get big n now look where hes at. Just goes to show u to always believe in yourself he barely had a following when i first found this video now hes one of the biggest artists out. Its been an honor to watch his come up from so early on.

Joyner Lucas is a hero🙏🏻I’ll be honest though’ seeing this has opened my eyes because although I knew things were bad in the USA 🇺🇸 with police running about like they’re playing little kid games with toy guns I don’t think I realised how bad it was😕this is real and these so called protectors of society are actually the monsters not to be trusted😳that’s got to be a scary world to be stuck in, if these fuckers never had guns I’m sure they’d be a lot nicer but the guns obviously make them feel invincible🤬like they’re some kind of god. I’m sorry people have to live like this😣something should’ve been done a long time ago to stop this but there’s no time like the present🙏🏻I’m sure there’s lots more people determined for change for a happier future not having to fear the law but to be able to trust them to help if needed🌸I truly hope things do change for the better🙏🏻💕
