Featuring: Sasha Go Hard & Eryn Allen Kane
dalla colonna sonora del film Chi-Raq di Spike Lee

Chi-Raq



Il soggetto della Lisistrata di Aristofane è un tema modernissimo, che è stato ripreso e adattato a moltissime realtà contemporanee. L'ultimo esempio è il film Chi-Raq di Spike Lee in cui la vicenda dello sciopero del sesso contro la guerra è la violenza è ambientato nelle periferie meridionali di Chicago, il cui soprannome unisce Chicago all'Iraq a sottolineare la violenza e il crimine che fanno da padroni. La satira prende di mira le gang di Chicago che saranno costrette a deporre le armi dallo sciopero del sesso delle donne.

Pray 4 My City - Put the Guns Down - Born in Chicago


trailer

[Verse 1: Eryn Allen Kane]
I was born in Chicago in nineteen and ninety-one
I was born in Chicago in nineteen and ninety-one
Well, my father told me, "Honey, you better get a gun"
Well, my first friend went down when I was seventeen years old
Well, my first friend went down when I was seventeen years old
Well, there's one thing I could say about that boy, "He gotta go"

[Verse 2: Sasha Go Hard]
I was born in Chicago, killers everywhere you go
Can't even visit on the porch cause them bullies be tryna score
And look here's be wanting more to play around in the playground
Instead they gather, stay down and pray it's safe inside that door
But it ain't fun when they got the guns up, put 'em down
In Chiraq they'd rather be a shooter than look like a clown
That your family was so crazy, young girls keep having babies
Mama said, they grind, they weak, lost they baby to the streets
I'ma pray everyday to get my family out the hood
I'ma pray everyday to get my family out the hood
Gotta make sure my brother keep his head inside that book
Gotta make sure my brother keep his head inside that book
Cause where I'm from, in the streets your life can get took
Cause where I'm from, in the streets your life can get took
In Chiraq they hanging police lights in every hood
In Chiraq they hanging police lights in every hood

[Verse 3: Eryn Allen Kane]
Well, my second friend went down
When I was twenty one, twenty one years of age
Well, my second friend went down
When I was twenty one years of age
Well, one thing I could say about that boy, he better pray
Well, my blues are alright if there's someone left to play the game
Well, my blues are alright if there's someone left to play the game
And all my friends are going, and things just don't seem the same
Oh, things just don't seem the same, baby
Oh, things just don't seem the same, baby

[Outro: Sasha Go Hard]
