"Hands Up" a riveting and hard hitting track produced by Cole James Cash featuring Austin rappers Crew54 expressing the frustration and anger within the minority community about the endless events of police brutality and the abuse of power by the boys in blue. Rappers G-Christ and Mos narrate with skill and finesse their feelings on the current state of how police are treating our citizens and the actions needed to alleviate the divide between civilian and police officer. This is the single for the upcoming EP by Cole James Cash "A Letter To My Son" a instrumental album dedicated to the son of producer Cole James Cash

lyrics

MOS:
To see them bullets reverse
To see them black bodies get up out of the hertz
To see my black community uplifted from hurt
when blood spills to the dirt and we ask what was it worth
But naw this verse and those tears wont bring my sons back
Won't bring my brothers my sisters won't bring my cousins back
They kill us plain and simple just because we black
No metaphor or allegory needed that's a fact
Coworkers silently endorse it, your neighbors just ignore it
We fighting and imploring, can we live
They love to distort it just to to justify the ruthless
Terroristic tactics the police forces using
These are lives lost more than hashtag movements
With ya hands up unarmed they still shooting
Too many names to mention, innocent spirits
But still called thugs cuz of facebook images

Hook:
HANDS UP
You gotta show em you not a threat
HAND UP
Even when the po is showing no respect
HANDS UP
Form ya hand into a fist and throw it high
HANDS UP
For my people let em know its time to ride

HANDS UP
For the struggle
HANDS UP
For the people
HANDS UP
Just because being black is not illegal
HANDS UP
For the struggle
HANDS UP
For the people
HANDS UP
Just because being black is not illegal

G-Christ:
There comes a time when fighting is inevitable
The news feeding you links that's inedible
Trash, keeping you ignant got you hating your own
Same slave mentality, brothers aint bout they home
And there's nothing I can do but discuss it, I'm disgusted
Media telling lies, and articles can't be trusted
Disrespect at its highest form
the way the demonize the youth
our society feel it's better we die alone
Before Fergusson was murderous
They was killing, black man free your burners
utilizing a cop out, fear is what they claiming
They scared of my skin color, they looking for ways to hang us
But NO, we still push thru the wall on our culture
we should tip the scales in the war on these vultures
Keeping our movement strong, develop unity
on a mission for justice, thoughts on our community

Hook:
HANDS UP
You gotta show em you not a threat
HAND UP
Even when the po is showing no respect
HANDS UP
Form ya hand into a fist and throw it high
HANDS UP
For my people let em know its time to ride

HANDS UP
For the struggle
HANDS UP
For the people
HANDS UP
Just because being black is not illegal
HANDS UP
For the struggle
HANDS UP
For the people
HANDS UP
Just because being black is not illegal
