Sho Baraka - Get Wise - music video

If you are familiar with the ' Presents ... King Kulture' compilation album that dropped January 31st then you know that one of the bangers on there was "Get Wise" by Sho Baraka (116, High Society Collective) and produced by Swoope (Collision Records, High Society Collective).

If you haven't heard it then shame on you. Sho flew out to Portland to shoot this music video with the guys over at Humble Beast. We hope you enjoy the video and can help us give to the children's school in Kinshasa, Congo by purchasing the album on iTunes or AmazonMP3 or if you want a physical CD you can go to our official store.

I’m at this open mic
All these poets wanna complain about the world but ain't nobody changing it/
I’m sitting in this class
All students want to argue about change man but ain't nobody doing it/
I’m sitting in this church
The preacher man is teaching about a new life but ain't nobody living it/
(ain't nobody living it)
here’s perfection lets go ahead a ruin it/

It won’t be long before I’m gone/
I’ll be home and I’ll be strong/
(get Wise)

Verse 1
Handed perfection and we ruined it/
Trying to get back to being nuded again/
Those who make claims ain't doing it/
Had change in my pocket but I’m losing it/
Whats the cost for beautiful feet/
We just all talk got beautiful teeth/
I see the grey haired just talking about us/
The wisest in room ain't talking the loudest/
Young man keep-clanging cymbal/
They exit while you intro/
The lost man needed some info/
But I can’t hear through a window/
I see the world needs more change/
But I just want more fame/
Cuz my pride wants more tower/
Before we work lets sleep one more hour/


Verse 2
We debate who the blind is- meanwhile we stand around he done bumped right into us/
We a bunch of peters trying to act strong point fingers trying to call out judas/
Before I went to sleep I made GOD a promise that I’ll grow up and pay him homage/
But when I sleep if I can be honest, all my dreams are just so childish/
Alone in a crowd full of noise, barely entertained in a room full of toys/
Living in Jericho hoping it gets destroyed, living amongst men disguised as boys/
Will you feet be a blessing- will your hands leave impressions/
It might be a problem if you have all the answers and ask no questions/
Everybody wants the crown now/
Nobody even wants to lay their life down/
We just talk we ain't really trying to live it my homie/I guess that's what they mean by religion my homie/
I see the world needs more change/
But I just want more fame/
Cuz my pride wants more tower/
Before we work lets sleep one more hour/
