It’s Up to Us – Ruff Mic of Precise Science

No better time than now to listen to “Battle Cry for Cuba and Zimbabwe.” It is one of the richest compilations of conscious hip hop in existence. One cut “It’s Up To Us” probably speaks to the current climate in regards to African descendants worldwide than any other. The lyrics make it clear…”It’s Up To Us.”

It’s Up to Us (Lyrics)

It’s Up to Us (3 times)

Only if its broke
should we fix it
Don’t deny what’s wrong
to get rich quick
Look inside yourself
for the upliftment
Needed To destroy the mindset
of being defeated
Mother Earth been going
through a tough time
Pollution and all of those
trying to stop her shine
Satellites and cell towers
trying to control our mind
Too fierce
You can’t stop the divine

Think about it
we all have a connection
So we have the right to give her protection
It’s essential to our own resurrection
It’s essential to plotting our direction
But first the affection
The question the question
Comes the manifestation
of the people’s liberation
You can read on your money
In God we trust
Ain’t really nothin changed
It’s up to us.

World is changin every day
People don’t know what’s on the way
Soul’s always in your control
Let the children lead us home
Reclaim all that we have lost
Universal Laws are reinforced
The Ancestors will guide our hand
So that the chosen overstand

World is changin every day
People don’t know what’s on the way
The Soul’s always in your control
Let the children lead us home
Reclaim all that we have lost
Universal Laws are reinforced
The Ancestors will guide our hand
So that the chosen overstand

It’s up to us
To build a world of love and trust
As the children of the sun
we must remind everyone
to raise your vibration
(repeat)

It’s up to us
It’s up to us

Let’s all be at one collective mind state
Food clothing and shelter for our race
We need each other
we feed each other
Feel this love so strong
that we bleed each other
We have the change the few
and how we see each other
See things for how they are
and we can free each other
Our people just don’t feel the bondage
So quite frankly they don’t see what’s wrong with
Being controlled
Being a slave
Resources stripped from our very DNA
Rest assured
That’s all done today
Humanity will rise
We’ll find another way
Ase’!!!
We’ll continue to exist and grow
Can’t forget
we must resist and know
the truth
the time
the place
the trust
We all must embrace the fact that
It’s Up to Us

The World is changin every day
People don’t know what’s on the way
Soul’s always in your control
Let the children lead us home
Reclaim all that we have lost
Universal Laws will be in force
The Ancestors will guide our hand
So that the chosen overstand

The World is changin every day
People don’t know what’s on the way
Soul’s always in your control
Let the children lead us home
Reclaim all that we have lost
Universal Laws will be in force
The Ancestors will guide our hand
So that the chosen overstand
