    “Just business enforcers with hate in they holsters
    Shoot you in the back, won’t face you like a soldier
    Kurt Loder asked me what I say to a dead cop’s wife
    Cops kill my people everyday, that’s life”

    Shout out to Maino and 80!


    I been brutalized by the police many times but at the same time when you in the streets running wild, it just comes with the territory. If you are an innocent law abiding citizen, police brutality is an issue. If you are not, dont bitch about it and act like a victim. Take it like a man.

    Police Brutality is very real. A Nurseing student with no record (5’7”, Black with a BookBag) was coming home from School, a couple of Pigs said “you fit the description of a shooter on the lose” The student said “Did The Criminal had medical scrubs and a college ID?” The Pig said “Shut the fuck up smart ass” Student said “Do some police work because we all can’t fit the description”. Student get’s his ass beat to a pulp and they charge the student with Obstructing Justice, Disturbing the Peace. Student Has to spend first night in jail ever with 2 black eyes, Judge says “Where gonna let you go with a warning this time. Don’t interfer with Police Duty’s”. Moral of the story, you can be doing everything right and the Police can make it look like whatever they want. If you wanna save lives, BE A FIREFIGHTER. True Story. The Shooter was 6’1” White guy.

    No Witness, No Camara’s, No Case. It Happeneds more often then people think. FUCK THE POLICE. If there’s any good cops, I havent meet one yet.

    @305 That’s funny I was thinking the exact same thing the whole time I was watching the video. It go’s to show who Rozays fan base is because anybody who’s grown up in these situations knows that the police is the enemy. The police dragged me from my car, beat me up, and stole from me and im not even a criminal or a thug and don’t want to be one. It’s just what you deal with when you black in the inner city. It becomes almost normal to get harassed by the beast. That’s why most blacks hate the police. All’s I see is a bunch of arrogant a–holes robbing drug dealers and falsely arresting people claiming they cleaning up the streets.

    Fu-k the police

  • Donn

    Why do rappers and Hip-Hop fans always feel the need to attack the police? They’re good people. GET A LIFE!


    Moral of the story…Dont talk slick to the police…They have the power to do and say what they want…and you will lose the battle even if you win the war…reserve your right to remain silent and use that to your advantage

  • onanigga

    Fuck the po po, fuck trouble causing negros

  • puerto-black

    @305, LOL
    @Donn, I Love all(Good) Music and I dont rap. Amaduo diallo, Neil Aggett, Nathaniel Levi, Oscar Grant III, Abner Louima, Rodney King, Javier Ovando, Sahar Sarid, Robert Davis, Joe Campos Torres, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Al hixon about how “Good People” treated them. SAMBO!
    @RAWDOG, I Feel you however they get away with murder. Its known that Police do dirt, why isnt there word tainted?

  • puerto-black

    @Donn, Those names are just the ones who made the news. Imagine the ones that get caught up in “Police work”


    It is tainted…its our job to point out their inconsistencies in statements and actions because the justice system and everybody who works for them won’t do that for us..

  • puerto-black

    @Rawdog, That’s Sad at 2011; we still gotta get one up on a sytem thats supposed to be blind. A Police/Judge/D.A/P.O.’s Perspective could be the difference between life and death, home or jail. If they see what they want, how can you win? I was raised knowing police are looking for crack, gunz and lies. If you dont have/do those three things your good. I was wrong. Now, they want to go to court to get that 150$ by ANY MEANS. Its getting worst out here, sir. The Hardworkers and even the Squres aren’t safe to them we all look the same


    I agree…shit aint changed though…In the words of the immortal Public Enemy…U gotta Fight The Power…Fight the powers that be

    @RAWDOG, Word to Chuck D

  • Maino Hater

  • These rap niggas too emotional, if I was the cops I would shoot rap niggas too, they make it so easy lol

  • Mittematic

    @ B

    Do your research or shut the fuck up son, stop running ya mouth that public lavatory. Rozay’s fans love him for his music, most of us do accept that he shoulda come out clean about his past but he was no popo running around in the street shooting at niggaz. He was a C.O a.k.a CORRECTIONAL OFFICER. There is a difference between a correctional officer operating in the police station and the one enforcing the law in the street. At the end of the day he was a Cop, but do not try to mislead the readers comparing him to cops shooting black people in the streets.
