about

This track from the upcoming Vintage Babies album by Maimouna Youssef and Dj Dummy is a tribute to Sandra Bland and many other women whose voices dare to be heard and whose stories haunt us all until we remember their names.

lyrics

If I should Die, Tomorrow at the hands of the police man,
And the paper say
we're going to call it a suicide, would you even question why?
would you shake your head, and say the ain't right,
Or do your best to forget about it,
Please, Please, Please don't forget about me

Ohhhh, Say my name
Say my name
Say My Name
Say my name
Don't forget my name


If I should Die tomorrow
AT the hands of the police Man
And the paper say, we're going to call it a suicide
would you even question why?
Would you believe in my innocence?
would you even come to my defense?
Would you believe in the good Ive done?
Or will my name be smeared and my story unsung?
Will you search for the answers or take what they hand us, Who's going to stand with me
Please Please Please Don't forget about me

Ohhhh, Say my name
Say my name
Say My Name
Say my name
Don't forget my name

Rap:
Even the sun goes down
heroes eventually die
shot with their hands in the sky
your favorite revolutionaries give up and comply
for a house on the hills, white wife, couple mills
I'm last of Mohicans I guess
Fighting for a cause they say is lost but I can't let it rest
Rebellion in the mammrys of my mama's breasts
And I drank til I was drunk, like I was lean off that Crunk.
We living every word that we rapping about
And the struggle it gets hard but we ain't backing out
Nothing is impossible
The word alone says Im Possible
So I'm the race horse that I'm riding for
The audacity of hope
to believe we can succeed when everybody says nope
Well F ya'll
Im different, Descendent of the fittest
reincarnated just so I can handle business
My Name, You know my name, So say my name, Say My name
