VIDEO:: Princeton Marcellis – DRUMSANDSIXTEENS III @Princeton116

Hip hop was meant to communicate a perspective. It was meant to shine light on certain issues within the community and within the world. With DRUMS AND SIXTEENS, I want to talk about some of those things and impute God’s truth and love that can change folks forever.

I Yea, i am here to serve, like some waiters is/
the BOC is eatin, you can cater this/
the Bread of Life is why we got life, i want whatever my Dad likes/
i have no rights, im tryna be like Jesus so my swag bites/
im in the Light, wit my LORD, i used to try and buddy Him/
but now I treat Him like its dead week and i study Him/
at Christ folks try to take more shots than some bar spots/
but for me my God took more whips than some car lots/
it’s heaven or hell take ya pick, He came to fix those who are sick/
Jesus Christ, King of kings, take the crown from ya Vic/
the world be thinking we pyscho/
but if I’m livin for them my sights low/
I’m here for the Father to make sons and daughters the walk is gettin harder like tight ropeeeesss/
yuh, I used to trust myself my life was foolish/
heart far from God, every day I was a Judas/
empty lookin for purpose I try to find it in myself/
i would be fulfilled if I met my goals and gain some wealth/
but naw, that’s a lie holmes/
abracadabra that lie’s gone/
and now I’m bout the Father’s biz like I got a tie on/
you livin in the dark but He’ll turn the lights on/
and keep goin, fake nails, press on/
u gotta understand that Jesus Christ paid the price for me/
I wasn’t worth a drop of blood but He gave His life for me/
laid it down raised it up reigns back in eternity/
made me a son I like to be the Spirit is daily purging me/
and I’m no longer livin, it’s Jesus Who’s inside me/
go head and get a stick you can poke my dead body/
gone without a trace and we increase the murder rate/
the old me is in the dirt like he from the garden state/
