about

"heart beat," the single off the album, is an anthem of anthems among the 12 songs that make up "All Of You." A bold assertion of the power of those who wield life over those who wield death. An ode to Chicago, Hip Hop, the movement, and that which can never be killed. A true collaboration with musician/vocalist/emcee LO Kari, and featuring audio samples from Chicago abolitionists Ethos and Damon Williams, "heart beat" is a new protest anthem for our times.

lyrics

heart beat

you can’t kill the heartbeat
it’s startin to beat ya, it’ll start to teach ya, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the art, or freedom, the art of freedom, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the harder you beat us, the more that you feed us, yea,
you can’t kill the heart beat
the star keeps beamin, the heart keeps beatin, yea

never has a tyrant entirely silenced his defiance
nor a line of riot cops in time overrided the riots
never has revival of genocidal ideas triumphed
long enough, right, to quiet all of the fighters though they’ve always tried
even after years and centuries of treaties proven hollow
Wounded Knee and DAPL, see the Sioux uphold laws you don’t follow
even after Jackson, slave-catchers, Alabama, Laquan McDonald,
Watts, Holocausts, and Ayotzinapa, you can’t stop Hip Hop, no!
definitely not in any of my favorite spots in Chicago
in the city of John Vietnam, Haymarket Martyrs, DuSable,
every minute that I’m still breathin, best believe I’ma be following
where the wind blows, heart still beatin, feelin the flow of the Tao..

Oh,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
it’s startin to beat ya, it’ll start to teach ya, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the art, or freedom, the art of freedom, yea,
you can’t kill the heartbeat
the harder you beat us, the more that you feed us, yea,
you can’t kill the heart beat
the star keeps beamin, the heart keeps beatin, yea

[LO Kari]
Have you ever been hated?
Conversation / Know your color /
At this rate we're chasin /
Truth and light / but would leave your brother /
What more is to life?
I can't seem to shake this feelin
What's wrong is right
I'd rather focus on winning
Cuz every time I turn on the news
It's back to back to back that my people dyin
And it's a shame we pretend like
Every thing is fine and /
And what good is a lion
If they cut off your feet as a cub?
I do not fuck with your hugs
How can I trust you after all the things you've done
To people who look like us?

[Crowd]
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Get up, stand up!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Stand up for your rights!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Get up, stand up!)
you can’t kill the heartbeat, (Don't give up the fight!)
of Mama Nature, Mama Mama Nature, (Cuz I never give up the fight!)
of Mama Nature, of Mama Nature! (Cuz I never give up the fight...)
