Second WeeklyLeak release, building up to the Shining Sons’ “Comin’ From the Eastside” Mixtape Release on April 2, 2011.

Lyrics
Intellect:
We shed tears for the ones who ain’t here
And say peace for the ones who ain’t here
Kids gettin’ shot ashes stored in the pot
Aint no type of family so they bangin’ a block

We trying to see change can’t be blind by the facts
We want to stay the same but we can’t do that
Roadblocks on the road don’t mean the road stop
Cause we organize for better and it go non stop

I spit bars for the ones who can’t be heard
And im walkin down my block see these families hurt
But the system don’t care so we hold weight
For the working families who be makin’ that change

I do it for the people and the art of the respect
But the Phiippines is in trouble why we gotta neglect
But I don’t understand why its patience it takes
For the world to know the flaws get the masses awake

Hook (x2):
To all my people in the Philippines, ONE LOVE
To all my mothers stressin’ over bills, ONE LOVE
To all the brothers in the streets killed, ONE LOVE
I shed tears for our loved ones, ONE LOVE

Intellect Verse 2:
I shed tears for our loved ones when bucks come
Run cause police gonna pull those guns
The government control and release disease
It’s increasin’ on the streets so peace ain’t in reach

But we never know a good thing till’ it’s gone
We lose dogs and homies to things so small
Kill off society the lives that we take
The real question in our minds is who do we blame

As the hands of time turn we strive to rewind
On the blocks teach the youngz make way for the blind
Im like hands up cofinement hands cuffed
But we gotta wise up in our minds it’s like times up

It’s one love for the struggle and cause
For the families in the hood who ain’t got nothin at all
But im survin the times through pennin’ the rhymes
You know its a struggle in these days and times

Hook (x2):
To all my people in the Philippines, ONE LOVE
To all my mothers stressin’ over bills, ONE LOVE
To all the brothers in the streets killed, ONE LOVE
I shed tears for our loved ones, ONE LOVE

Shining Sons “Women Hold Up Half The Sky”
DOWNLOAD

In honor of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, March 8, 2011

Intellect:
To all the women in my life that I appreciate
From the past and my sistahs keep it real today
Someone like Gabriela or like Angela
But never to be the type on tv like Pamela

Like Lorena, yeah fight to free the motherland
For womens rights, yeah my people need to understand
But we fight together, never love each other less
Like Diego and Gabriela……. the struggle never rest

For the mothers all waitin in line
Just know that change will be comin in time
In this movement, gotta be consistent
Liberate my sistahs gotta be persistent

Everyday need to educate the worst minds
Struggle together so we break the worst binds
Let me see that fist up, let the struggle unfold
Tell the story of the movement that was untold


Chorus:
Sheroes in my life, they all a part of me
Can’t stop, won’t stop til we all are free
Recognize that it’s time to break dividing lines
It is true that women hold up half the sky

Jedi:
Most of us so-called men need to understand
Labeling women words that’s so out of hand
Appreciate, you shouldn’t ever dominate
Spitting the same lines like Lil’ Weezy and Drake

So strong like Gabriela Silang
Empowerment for the future passing the baton
These other lame gentlemen really gotta see
When we fight for freedom, men and women gotta be free

Video vixens paid green just to pose
End the prostitution and fuck being sold
I can’t deny that my momma raised me
Scratch that old masculinity, freedom is the goal

It’s no justice no peace living on these streets
More power to all women love life indeed
Mix it up switch it up more militant
Sheroes in the past and present got the strength to win
