Information on the rapper

Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15th, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist who had a seismic impact on race relations during the African-American Civil Rights movement in the United States, beginning in the mid-1950s. He also led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president.

Through his activism, King played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for combating racial inequality through non-violence, among several other honors.

King was assassinated on April 4th, 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded African-American leaders in history, often referenced by his 1963 speech, "I Have a Dream".

Lyrics

Verse 1:

I'm the King of civil rights from the city to suburbia!

No shoes, no shirt, but I'm still gonna serve ya!

Make ya swallow your words so you can break the fast,

Then thank God almighty you can eat at last!

I admire the way you broke the British power,

But I have a dream that one day you'll take a shower!

Like the "H" in your name, you ought to remain silent!

Flatten your style like bread, naan violence!

Verse 2:

I've got so much street cred, they write my name on the signs!

I'd ring you for tech support, but I got a no bell prize!

Nigga, we got more beef than one of your sacred cows,

But I'm about to forgive you so hard right now!

Scrapped lyrics

God taught us not to judge men by the color of their skin,

But my momma told me not to stand downwind

Of a curry-eating, diaper-wearing, nude Yoda man!

I have a dream that one day you'll put on pants!

I'll preach you, I'll teach you, I'll march in the street you!

Any man with more than two teeth can out eat you!


I'll call you for technical support, when I need it on my Nobel prize!

Brother, I know we got more beef than one of your sacred cows,
