Kokayi chants against Babylon over this soulfully upbeat joint with a playful flow and an insanely catchy chorus. Sing along!

Lawd! This for you mammas out there! Truly!

I said now hey now! What you gonna do love?
C’mon! Say Babylon, she gonna burn on down
But not before I say she lose her crown

What I mean, What I mean, What I mean…
War to murder rate, K-Swiss huh man will fill your tank
Thank George and them, Gorging in more and then
Man swore em in, Promises wore dem thin
War torn warlords is often times the one that’s foreign
Investments now, Halliburton burdens the tax base no question
Ya bills pile sky. Prescription rates fly
PAC committees keep sitting,
By senators side, Sinister games while the sinister hide
C’mon nah

I said now hey now! What you gonna do love?
C’mon! Say Babylon, she gonna burn on down
But not before I say she lose her crown

In DC we got a U.U.1 for buckets, new shoes for profits
We on the dog fights, to hell with human right
Um saying, Ya speak abortion, the youth speak extortion
The old speak misfortune, poor want their portion
Mama’s want they young back, but they in Iraq
And catching on a mortar, for freedom nobody wanted
They saying stay a dem course, but how dem say that when them
Got nah youth in the force?

I said now hey now! What you gonna do love?
C’mon! Say Babylon, she gonna burn on down
But not before I say she lose her crown

So we pushing the poor out, suburbs they wore out
School systems the victim now watch them youth pour out
12 grade prepping the prison rate
They stepping to demonstrate beefin with the rappers
So they can get more face, no leaders just sideline cheerleaders
Peers – no need for mentors for fear heeded
Cosby speeches, Jesse placate
Sharpton harping on issues back date
Tavis, he trying, souls of black folk crying
c’mon

I said now hey now! What you gonna do love?
C’mon! Say Babylon, she gonna burn on down
But not before I say she lose her crown
