Kanye West & Jay-z - Diamonds (From Sierra Leone)

Good morning! This ain`t Vietnam, still
People loses hands, legs, arms, for real
Little was known of Sierra Leone
And how it connected to the diamonds we own
When I speak of diamonds in the song
I ain`t talking bout the ones to be glown
I`m talkin` bout Roc-a-Fella, my home
My chain, these ain`t `Conflict Diamonds`
Is they Jacob? Don`t lie to me, man
See, a part of me say keep shinin`
How? When I know what a `Blood Diamond` is
Though it`s thousands of miles away
Sierra Leone connected to what we go through today
Over here, it`s a drug trade, we die from drugs
Over there, they die from what we buy from drugs
The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charms-es
I thought my Jesus piece was so harmless
`Til I seen a picture of a shorty armless
And here`s the conflict...
It`s in a black person`s soul to rock that gold
Spend your whole life tryin` get that ice
Oh, the Polo rugby, it look so nice
How could something so wrong make me feel so right?
Right before I beat up myself like Ike
You could still throw your Roc-A-Fella Diamond tonight

[Kanye]People asking me is I gon` give my chain back
That`ll be da same day I give da game back
You know the next question ah y`all were Dame at?
This track the Indian Dance to give our rain back
What`s up wit you and Jay man are y`all ok man?

[Jay-Z]Yup! I got it from here, `Ye, damn
The chain remains, the game is intact
The name is mine, I`ll take the blame for that
The pressure`s on, but guess who ain`t gon` crack?
Pardon me, I had to laugh at that
How could you falter, when you the Rock of Gibraltar
I had to get off the boat, so I could walk on water
This ain`t no tall order, this is nothing to me
Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week
I do this in my sleep
I sold kilos of coke, I`m guessin` I could sell CDs
I`m not a business-man, I`m a business, man!
Let me handle my business, damn
Kanye-z, you got me, Freeway then Foxy,
YG`s, Teiarra Mari, Peedi, watch me
Bleek could be one hit away his whole career
As long as I`m alive, he`s a millionaire
And even if I die, he`s in my will somewhere
So he could just kick back and chill somewhere
Oh yeah, he don`t even have to write rhymes
The Dynasty, like my money last three life times
Shirley Bassey in rear, saying "exactly``
Whatever, saying "practically" my whole career
The Diamond is forever, I been mining this forever
Now the Louis Vuitton Don is timin` couldn`t be better
People lined up to see the Titanic sinking
Instead, we rose from the ashes like a phoenix
If you waitin` for end of the Dynasty sign
It would seem like forever, it`s a mighty long time
I`m Young, b|t(hes!
