Before

 

What you think this white lady wanna take our picture for, Lil Jim?

Don’t know Big Brother, and why you think she gave us these here biscuits?

I guess cause she wants us to stand still for her picture. But I tell you what,

Big Brother, I ain’t eating this here biscuit, why not Lil Jim? Cause I was passing

By that white barbershop over on 12th Street, and I think she wants a Before & After…

What’s a Before & After Lil Jim? I saw on the wall of that barbershop a picture of two little

Black girls, holding biscuits just like these, and there was a picture next to it with those

Two little girls laying down dead, half eaten biscuits still in hand… 

Hey Lil Jim, what? RUN!
