B.K.N.Y. “Where Ya At”
No More Prisons (Raptivism Records, 2002) 


The song was deemed racially offensive by KOOP Radio (Austin, TX) and precipitated a “cultural sensitivity” training for the station’s volunteers. 

LYRICS

All my people up in Attica, where ya at?
All my people up in Ray Brook, where ya at?
All my people up in Marion, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

All my people up in Rikers, where ya at?
All my people up in Jackson, where ya at?
All my people up in Greenview, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

They got me locked up
All because I had to build my stock up
Storing because my baby boo was knocked up
Gotta get this money for a doctor
She need a doctor
I tried working
Fired from my job now I’m hustling

That’s when the po po bust in
Stomped on my whole operation
Now I’m facing 25 to life
Can’t see my daughter and my f*cking wife
Had to do wrong just to make it right
Now I’m locked up, won’t see the light, but I still fight
I’m not a criminal, I was just doing what I had to do
Clothes, pay the bills, get the food
Now my baby boo is with another dude
So I talk to…

All my people up in Sing Sing, where ya at?
All my people up in Orient, where ya at?
All my people up in Lompoc, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

All my people up in Lauren [?], where ya at?
All my people up in Lewisburg, where ya at?
All my people up in Clinton, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

No job, rent due
So niggas gotta pay rent, too
Phone off, no food, couldn’t call out
It was like I was living in a poor house
So I had to take it south like Moorehouse
Hand to hand, yeah right in front of your house
Key low, had it mapped quick
White package for the white crackers
Gotta profit, niggas couldn’t stop it
Til this bitch nigga went and told the cops sh*t

All the fiends pop this
In the hotel what about five bricks
Five block time in about nine clips
Imagine if they find this

I’m locked up behind this
Cops kick in the door, what timing 
Got the room tapped, like the phone line is
Now I’m behind this 
Motherfu*kers steel cage full violence
Representing all my niggas on the island

All my people up in Fulsom, where ya at?
All my people up in San Quentin, where ya at?
All my people in Reno [?], where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? 

All my people up in Otisville, where ya at?
All my people up in Terryheart [?], where ya at?
All my people up in the tomb, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

Yo east jail out no got convict [?]
Some niggas locked up over dumb sh*t
Get caught up or try to run sh*t
Doing time like up in the hundreds
We living on the streets that’s bad
Where the crooked ass cops harass
Every time those cops harass 
Put a bullet right in their ass

For my peoples in the bullpen, where ya at?
All my people up in [?], where ya at?
All my people in the group home, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

All my people up in Morgan, where ya at?
All my people up in [?] Bay, where ya at?
All my peoples up in MCC, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

All my people up in Attica, where ya at?
All my people up in Sing Sing, where ya at?
All my people up in San Quentin, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?

All my people up in Lompoc, where ya at?
All my people up in Orient, where ya at?
All my people up in Otisville, where ya at?
Come on, come on, where ya at? Where ya at?
