Pharoahe Monch - "Stand Your Ground" (prod. Lee Stone)


Pharoahe Monch drops a response to the Trayvon Martin verdict in verse with "Stand Your Ground" produced by Lee Stone - a rough cut of a tribute that Monch decided to drop, despite the fact that it isn't officially finished. The track is a hard driving punk-tinged blues that finds the expert lyricist spreading his message in plain English; his emphasis on the word stand forces the lyrics of the refrain from mere political reference into an urgent call to action. The immediacy of Pharoahe Monch's tone plays like a well-timed response to the question reverberating across social media platforms as people outraged at the ruling in the Trayvon Martin trial ask what to do next. With this track, Pharoahe Monch offers a bit more fuel for the fire that has been building slowly beneath a good percentage of people in the United States who have tired of injustice and death related to the laws governing gun ownership at the state and national level. Check Pharoahe Monch and Lee Stone's Trayvon Martin tribute track "Stand Your Ground" below. While the song is available for free download, Pharoahe Monch is asking fans to donate to the Trayvon Martin Foundation. Scroll down to peep the lyrics to the song.

Stand Your Ground Lyrics:

I am just one man but I know my power

It's the final call were in the final hour

And we must not divide as we march toward our future

Who are they to decide when they conspire to shoot yah,

Ahh, that could've been my mother, ohh, that could’ve been my brother

As sure as we rotate the sun and the earth revolves, get involved 3x

Stand your ground

They'll say I've lost my mind claim that I'm psychotic

He's a fucking traitor he's unpatriotic

But I learned in life truth it must be slated

And I know my rights they're un-alienated Descendent of the blood of slaves

Used to be the one afraid

Until I learned my souls divine amalgamate lets combine unify get in line and

Stand your ground
