about

The song and video iMarch was inspired by the Black Love Matterz (20 Blocks, 20 Weeks) Community Task Force in Milwaukee, WI. I, along with a number of concerned community members made a commitment to be present for the entire summer to promote peace in the streets and conflict resolution in the toughest neighborhoods in Killwaukee. We also took this to time promote the Justice Or Else Movement, spearheaded by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
We experienced a number of trials during the 20 Weeks. We experienced death, danger, fear, sabotage, slander, and in-fighting, but we persevered. Even though the summer is over our task force continues to meet on a regular basis and we remain committed to serving our community. I am now focusing much of my energy on the promotion and coordination of the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March, which will take place in Washington, D.C. on 10-10-15. ‪#‎JusticeOrElse‬

lyrics

iMarch
iMarch like a Black pied piper - Surrounded by vipers
Everybody ain’t invited I only roll with the riders
iMarch because it beats standing still
Plus the feeling that you get when you doing God’s Will
iMarch I guess I be the Good shepherd
Gave my life for the sheep been rewarded for my efforts
iMarch With Black Men Women Children
Coming to your hood - Like, “Black Love is in the Building!”
iMarch to the beat of a different drummer
20 blocks, 20 weeks - Held it down the whole summer
iMarch I guess I was this born that way
Shot a shorty that was w/ us - i was torn that day
Shot his mom’s the next week
That’s why we in the streets - Whose streets (Our streets) Black Love squashing beef
iMarch We do it for our future -
Had a dream that I was sent to teach the people like a tutor
iMarch Cuz Black Matter Lives
I’m storing up blessings yo you get what you give
iMarch to delay the God’s judgement
Putting boots to the ground it increase a Brotha’s budget
iMarch to get a piece of the peace
Was my homie now my brotha got the mark of the beast
iMarch Cuz When the hood wake Up - (We gone shut it down)
Bear the cross - Get the crown
iMarch to advance
In a military manner - I don’t leave shit to chance - U don’t hear me
We ain’t playing - Getting Justice or Else!
Black Friday boycott - We coming for your wealth
Then We coming for some land - Cuz It’s time to take a stand
Gat Turner - Gun of God, I’ll rock or a dj or a band - U don’t feel me
iMarch cuz i’m too proud to run
Niggaz making up excuses cuz they too scared to come
Or they too f--king lazy - But I’ll just use the babies
Gatekeepers looking at us like, “Them niggaz must be crazy!”
iMarch Put the Queens in the middle
Call the people out their homes and on the spot hold a vigil
iMarch cuz Shawn and Khalil
Said they Wanna feed the hood - Cheddar fire up the grill
& I’ll flank the rear - W/ the G’s in the back
Wisconsin Willing King T- Mike G & Sketch the Mack
iMarch We might just save one
Stop the Violence Killwaukee - Brothers Put down the guns
iMarch Ayawa came the same week
That she lost her dear mother but she didn’t miss a beat
iMarch cuz somebody got to do it
When your burden get too heavy - Yo we here to get u through it
iMarch 4 the mothers of the slain -
God sent us all to tell u that they didn’t die in vain
You see the movement is a marathon - This ain’t a sprint
Here today - gone tomorrow - & they wonder where you went
White Leadership is hiding - Black leadership is scared
But We came with Allah - so baby - We came prepared
iMarch cuz ‪#‎BlackLoveMatterz‬
No press, no funding, no permission from your master
iMarch & we ain’t even got a permit
& if throw us all in jail best believe it will be worth it
iMarch
