It's almost over
With it being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and only 4 days left in office for President Obama I thought it would be important to do some reflecting on President Barack Obama's presidential term. 8 years is a long time, but this presidential term seems to be that vacation that you never wanted to end. But the surreal part is that it's almost over. For some kids your the only President they ever knew, and for some people your the only President they ever acknowledged. You gave hope to a nation who never had it. You dodged all the jabs that they tried to throw at you, (and believe me there were a lot of jabs thrown). You promised change whether directly or indirectly, for a nation that needed change directly or indirectly. This moment of realizing that change didn't happen, and the emotions that come with the thought that this may have been our only chance, only J. Cole could some up this emotion is his song "Be Free"...
We so elated, we celebrated like Obama waited until his last day in office to tell the nation, brothers is getting their reparations, hey
But it ain't over til it's over
But the ship is still steering straight, a few patches, a few plugs, but it's still afloat, so there's still HOPE. Obama showed us that you can still listen to hip-hop and be comfortable in any boardroom or any meeting. He had a rap concert at the White House, you can love him or hate him for that but you can't take back that it happened. No other President has been as openly accepted by the hip-hop community. Over 8 years ago, a nation found out what HOPE was. So when it all comes to an end on January 20th. We're going to end this presidency they same way we started this presidency saying that "MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK"...
Tell him I'm doin' fine Obama for mankind
