Initially, it took the lyricist some time to find a pocket where he wanted to deliver his bars before touching on a multitude of subjects including his hometown of Inglewood, the fascism plaguing the White House, societal pressures, Garveyism, and more before wrapping up his freestyle in Spanish in a minute-long display of his multi-linguistic abilities. The well-versed songwriter aggressively spit:

“Society is sickened and variety is the prescription
Creatively impaired why are n*ggas shared to be different
Underexposed, overstimulated children are born targets of marketing ploys
Intellect rarely employed
Making decisions based on indigenous wisdom
They take away our freedom and give a n*gga religion”
