*New Brandon Carter video – “Blood Money”*

Awww Man!! I should have told you that the Homie Brandon Carter was about to release a classic album earlier this year, but I was waiting for the perfect time. And I couldn’t think of any perfecter way to set off the month of September than with the lead off video from Carter’s They’re Trying To Kill You album, which will be dropping on his birthday, September 15th!!

I gave you guys the audio to this song a few months back in preparation, but Brandon’s added a few things to that original version and put together a super memorable and thought provoking clip to set the tone for what you can expect off of this album.

This is the first of the albums in a birthday series with his dropping during Virgo season, and the first of my 2 debut LPs dropping on my Birthday(it was my idea first – but no shots, no shots)in October (Libras all day!!). Oh by, the way, that album will be produced entirely by Brandon. Get ready… For now, chew on this

New Brandon Carter Single – “BLOOD MONEY”

Today my boy Brandon Carter is dropping the first single off of his new politically charged album They’re Trying To Kill You. It’s a change of pace for Carter, who’s tackling a before unseen side of his artistic output.

Now usually this kind of thing is reserved for lyrics from my own catalogue in my Hot 16…Or More…Segment, but Brandon wants to make this project as informative and inclusive as possible, so he’s sharing the lyrics to the songs on the album in as many ways as possible. Read along here;

“Blood Money”

Artist: Brandon Carter

Producer: Brandon Carter

Album: They’re Trying To Kill You

Verse #1

Corporations want to get paid and they dont care who bleeds

Thats why my sneakers are made by children over seas

And their hourly wage is not enough to eat,

but companies get away because no one oversees.

man It’s about the G’s, better get em

Because I’ve seen the poor get ignored by the system.

But in reality I see the poor are the Victims

of this cannibal animal called capitalism.

Wheres the lack of division between the haves and the have-nots?

Chance to advance but they plan so you can not.

Get the jail route if you caught  with that crack rock

get a bail out…. If your crimes are from bad stocks.

Cant stop trying to find answers

how can they deny coverage when they find cancer.

Tax breaks for the rich while the poor trying to by Pampers.

You cant prepare for the life after with your Blood Money.

Choirs

Wall Street ruins lives for that Blood Money

In Iraq shoulders dying for that Blood Money

Politicians committing crimes for that Blood Money

Fox News telling lies for that Blood Money

We ignoring human rights for that Blood Money

The environment sacrificed for that Blood Money

We all going to pay the price for that Blood Money

Thats what they want from me

Verse #2

The Planet gets warmer cuz you filling up your Humvee

the cash from countries were kids going hungry.

Drug war in Mexico is getting kind of ugly

and we support it every time we buy a bag and puff trees.

You must see the terrorist that want to bomb you

get there money off the drugs you put in your nostrils.

And I support that Julian Assange dude

he showed us who we killing when we bring them bombs through!

Do what I’ve got to, I’m just tryna survive shopping that gross product from off of I-95

Because thats how we was brought up, how we was taught to survive

knowing we going to get caught up and locked up for our crimes

i’m from where the greed breed hopelessness

Politicians on the TV they dont think we notice it.

Give me a week of them Wall Street bounces

I’ll take it to the streets and feed homeless kids off of this BLOOD MONEY

Repeat Chorus
