Leaders
Nas & Damian Marley Lyrics


This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world
This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world

Yeah!
Got out the six hundred
Blunted
Chicks hunt him
Neighborhood know he comin'
Jakes hate him
Snakes could not violate him
Pimps memorize his lines-verbatim
He reps N.Y. yo
Gives C-notes to winos
Not church
It's how he tithe though
He walks the tenement
Sleeps at his super fly condo
My kinda nigga
My icon, my idol
No certificate
For this misfit who handle business
The odds stacked against him
He fights back mackin' Benzes
Never puts cash or ass
Before friendship
He laughs last
As some die young
He is still existing
Somehow he got around the pitfalls of the system
When he walks we watch
When he talks we listen
Leaders

This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world
This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world

Who do I follow?
Who do I copy?
Look in to the mirror
And it's you I see look at me
Everything new
Like it fresh from the factory
Everything you do?
It impact me
Your lifestyle attract me
Parents try distract me
When I grow up
I want to be like you exactly (exactly)
And as soon as I get over this acne
There's no way anybody coulda stop me

Me gravitate toward the aura
And all the mannerism
The sending out of orders
And man start moving busy
The locking of the corners?
The streets and all the buildings
Me love you like a father
Me ready and me willing
Anything what you a talk
Is law in my dominion
And me have similar thoughts
I share the same opinions
Me have it say you smart
With me best interest at heart
I'm following your path
Yow mine when you a walk

This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world
This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world

They appeal to the conscious
The Paramount
The Cesar, the monsters
The grandiose, the martyrs
The hell on earth pompous
Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson's
The Harlemites the Garveyites
Black as the credit card we swipe
Poppin' Dom tonight
For all of mine
I can see myself back at the Autobahn
Malcolm on the podium
Shells drop to linoleum
Swipe those
Place 'em on display at the Smithsonian
Next to only gems
That were left behind
By holy men
Infectious
Charisma of those who gave us direction
The anti-sexes
Resistance against oppression
Progressive thinking
Ghetto speakers
Protesters against the colored
Only section to the Jena 6 and
The Frost Nixon
The contradiction
The cross the crucifixion
The loss we took for sinning
On Esau's back inscription
That it was written
That nothing is coincidence and
They took our leaders and they lynched them

This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world
This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world
Change the world, change the world
Change the world
Change the world, change the world
You change the world

T. Ama butha Bean

Fave song on the album. Retraining my entirety for sure. I am not a leader but following and sharpening my skills.

I was a kind man. That made about three bad decisions. No forgiving me or allowing me the second round to do his thing well. I gotta strike out from comfort and self rely and sustain my being.

Hated by many loved by self. My soon to be ex-wife mind fucked me and bout had me jumping off the bridge to death. I didn't though. They plotting like a mofo.
Fuck it though bring my death, the can, and success. I have to get me stable or die trying.

I think my 8 yr fake marriage was set up and family orchestrated to allow my downfall.

I'll never know but I do know life is awesome and if simplified correctly with great focus many can and will reach their goals and obtain that generational wealth of they chose to.



Music Is The Weapon

Chorus: Stephen Marley]

This one's for all the leaders

[Verse 1: Nas]

Yeah!
Got out the 600, blunted
Chicks hunt him
Neighborhood know he comin'
Jake hate him, snakes could not violate him

Pimps memorize his lines verbatim
He reps N.Y., yo Gives C-notes to winos
Not church, it's how he tithe though

He walks the tenement
Sleeps at his super fly condo
My kinda nigga, my Icon, my idol

No certificate for this misfit who handle business
The odds stacked against him
He fights back mackin' Benzes

Never puts cash or ass before friendship
He laughs last?
As some die young, he is still existin'

Somehow he got around the pitfalls of the system
When he walks, we watch
When he talks, we listen
Leaders

[Chorus: Stephen Marley]

This one's for all the leaders
Leader
Lets all change the world
Change the world

This one's for all the leaders

[Verse 2: Damian Marley]

Who do I follow?
Who do I copy?
Look in to the mirror, and it's you I see look at me

Everything new like it fresh from the factory
Everything you do? It impact me
Your lifestyle attract me
Parents try distract me
When I grow up, I want to be like you exactly

And as soon as I get over this acne
There's no way anybody coulda stop me

Me gravitate toward the aura
And all the mannerism
The sendin' out of orders
And man start movin' busy

The lockin' of the corners?
The streets and all the buildings
Mi love you like a father
Mi ready and mi willin'

Anything what you a talk is law in my dominion
And mi have similar thoughts
I share the same opinions

Mi have it say you smart
With mi best interest at heart
I'm followin' your path
Yow mine whe you a walk

[Chorus: Stephen Marley]

This one's for all the leaders

Next to only gems that were left behind by holy men

Infectious charisma of those who gave us direction
The anti-sexists
Resistance against oppression

Progressive thinkin'
Ghetto speakers
Protestors against the colored
Only section to the Jena 6 and

The Frost Nixon
The contradiction
The cross, the crucifixion
The loss we took for sinnin'
On Esau's back inscription

That it was written
That nothing is coincidence'n
They took our leaders and they lynched them

[Chorus: Stephen Marley]

This one's for all the leaders

the beautifulest thing ever is that it seems that Damian is talking to Bob 
"Anything what you a talk
Is law in my dominion
And mi have similar thoughts
I share the same opinions
Mi have it say you smart
With mi best interest at heart
I'm following your path
Yow mine whe you a walk"

GOAT album. Untouchable. Apparently Damian went in the booth and spat most these lyrics off the top. Seen an interview with Nas, he said it was insane!
