Writing Prompt #27

Put your music on shuffle. Write a poem beginning with the first phrase you hear.

Fuck these niggas talking about man

I just want a hundred grand

Is all these artists talk about

They can’t make good music so they just talk about stuff that brings clout

Money, drugs, girls, all the things that bring us down

But we talk about it because that’s all we can get on the beat

I wish they would just take a seat

If you can’t rap then why even take that leap

Our people dropping to their knees

Because of the drugs their taking

Because of what your songs saying

You’re not even taking

Your faking

While they’re dying

Or killing to feed the addiction they gained

What am I talking about man

I guess I started tripping too from listening to you
