Review

February, 18th 2016
4:29 of slow narration, where the most important and frequent word is the banner – with it, all endings of verses rhyme in the song. Singer is named Propaganda – rather ambivalent in the music world, especially if it sings in the Christian rap genre. However, it copes well with this purpose. And also this kind of music teaches him with good things – not a single bad word is used in this rap, of 4:22 in length that in itself is a nonsense for this musical genre. And it also educates us.

Raise the Banner Song Lyrics


[Intro]
You know, it hit me one night I was reading my daughter
A bedtime story and uhm, I noticed something
You know every time I read this story it never fails
You know the tortoise he always wins
[Hook]
This ain't a game standard, better raise the banner
You should demand better, homie, raise the banner
Testify, rally cry, under the banner
Jah Jah, King Nissi, follow the banner
Uh, for your children, for your neighbours, for your communities
Follow the banner!
Everybody, unashamed, lock your arms, plant your feet
Look around, they need you! Follow the banner
[Verse 1]
Eey yo, tios, tias, ates, qyas; consider your influence
The little ones want to be us
This ain't about ego, stop thinking so selfishly
Called to be the best is what's best for our community
Consistency, change the future of a family
When one goes to college, it breaks the cycle of poverty
I know a ex-vice lord dropped his flags, and picked up the pulpit
Put a price on his head
What caught us in a hairstyle, brave in the drought
And just last week he baptized they guy who put the hit out!
My cousin Era shootin' kites to aunt Carolin about how he hates his life
And tell me a lil' more about Christ
Well versed in gang talk, fooled them OGs and them prison guards
Now he walks a yard he owns, no could'a should'a would'a's
Ask all my kin, folks, I read the story a million times
Tortoise always wins
[Hook]
[Verse 2]
Better husbands, better fathers, more servants, more diligence
No excuses, they are useless
You can do this, follow the banner
It takes discipline, to be dead to sin
Can't do it alone, you need your kin
Just keep the pace, understand the race
You ain't gotta be fast, just don't run out of gas
No honorable mentions
Leave no leftovers
Licked the plate of life clean and thanks to Elohim
No Ponzi schemes, just excellence, just reverence he is our banner
Just look around, examine creation, it's beautiful ain't it?
The pictures he painted
B-line the finish line, don't mind if you quote me
Ask why we ain't hot yet? We cookin' ours slowly
