Master P releases emotional single about police brutality “You need Me and I need you”

Master P single “You Need Me And I Need You” expresses so many realities
about what is going on in our society today, with all of these senseless
killings. Master P says, “I am saddened and disappointed that this is happening in America. I am not saying all cops are all bad, but those that commit crimes should be tried as criminals just like everyone else. For those cops that are doing great jobs in the community, they should be honored. No more paid vacations for killing people in cold blood. Waking up and seeing Alton Sterling murdered for selling cds in Baton Rouge which is my own backyard, is heartbreaking, this could have been me. Then the next day I see another African American man getting gunned down on Facebook, next to his girlfriend. On top of the, five policemen is murdered in Dallas. This is unacceptable. The only way that we’re going to be able to fight this is with love. 1st John 4:21 says that anyone that loves God must love his people. I know it is tough for us right now but we can get through this. This is not a black or white issue, this is a human issue. We got our hands up, don’t shoot. We all we got.Together we can save the next generation.”

LYRICS

Intro:
Remember all the sisters and brothers that got shot by the cops
We got our hands in the air and we still get popped
Now I ain’t saying all cops is bad
How many we got to lose before they take away a badge
How many of us gotta march man before this end
Why they going on vacation and they put us in the pen
Is it because of our skin tone, what happened to freedom of speech
They lock us up in the chains and gun us down in the streets

Verse 1:
Dear brothers or should I say soldiers of all colors
Where we went wrong I wrote this love song for ya
Let me begin to tell ya how I love ya
And if your heart is anything like mine, soldier I’d die for ya
You never met me but you felt my presence
Your father, your son, your brother, that’s my essence
I’m only human so I stress like you and I’m just like you and someday I
gotta leave this flesh like you
We’re all a part of a plan that we would never truly understand
And convictions seeking confessions, we’re confused by the devil’s hand
Ain’t none of us was born killers and thieves but it’s the evil we instill
in the seeds
My soldiers as ironic as it seems Woadie don’t nothing truly exist but your
dreams Woadie
And sometimes I find myself worshipping in the moment
And when you catch me off track just put me back on it, with your love

Chorus:
All our people we lost out here
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
Got our hands up but still in fear
All the bad times we’ve been through
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
Flashing lights please don’t shoot
You need me and I need you
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
We’re all human nobody’s perfect
Change your ways while you got time
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)

Verse 2:
Lord tell us, did Martin Luther King man die for nothing, in Baton Rouge
Alton Sterling man die for nothing, Philando Castile it looked real ’til I
seen on Facebook man how he got killed
Eric Gordon told the cops Man I can’t breathe
Trayvon and Mike Brown died right up in the streets
Sandra Bland Man never had a chance, hung her in the cell like the Klu Klux
Klan
These man-made laws Man supposed to be protecting the people
The bad cops out here committing the ultimate evil
And it’s a shame how they screw us
Man we’re all human but you see how they do us
They say slavery don’t exist man say we all free
Law say we got rights why we can’t walk the streets
You say we all evil so we protest for love and peace
And get scared see tattoos, dreads and gold teeth

Chorus:
All our people we lost out here
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
Got our hands up but still in fear
All the bad times we’ve been through
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
Flashing lights please don’t shoot
You need me and I need you
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)
We’re all human nobody’s perfect
Change your ways while you got time
(Lord tell us where do we go from here)

Outro:
We pray for the families that lost their loved ones in this injustice. We
pray for the police that lost their lives in these senseless killings.
We fight ignorance with love and I’m not pointing the finger at nobody
because this is a human problem we’re facing right now. I’m just saying if
a police commit a crime he should be treated like a criminal just like
everybody else. We just want justice. No more paid vacations. POP pullover
protocol. I mean we all hurtin’ Blacks, Whites, Asians, Latinos. We all we
got. We just want peace. When you know better, you do better. None of us
perfect. 1st John 4:21 Anyone that love God must love his people. We got
our hands up, don’t shoot. We all we got.
