Reason - Cashless society

Other than 1950 Group areas act
The government created racially segregated areas
And forcibly removed people from neighbourhoods reserved for white people
From 1950 until 1983 one of the largest mass removals in modern history took place

No cash no cash
No cash no cash
Swipe no cash swipe no cash
Swipe no cash swipe no cash
Swipe no cash swipe no cash
Swipe no cash swipe it's like

I'm from a cashless society
The biggest part of the economy
Where poverty is the equality
And everything happening violently
But then we talk about it quietly
And then we go about it cowardly
Cause getting arrested is never a stress for them niggas
They always gon cop a plea
That's when they come back with a lot of beef
Like they're from Miami with all the heat
They wanting your numbers like lotteries
But like winning a Grammy you gotta speak
They telling you shut up and drop your knees
You screaming and begging oh stop it please
They not even asking you properly
With your wife and the kids in the property

K1 K1 K1 I don't know who's safe though
We want paper major anything gon change though
These drugs make us wake up get the money any way though
They just make us braver you can ask my nigga Dajo
Nearly lost a finger tryna figure why these little niggas got hate though
Could've been the bigger nigga
Let it simmer but it got a little racial
So then he went again cause he wouldn't let swear them forget they should pay too
Little did he get it
You can never get a hater nigga tryna waste you

High schools no cash
Bottle stores more cash
Corner stores no cash
Prostitutes more cash
Hospitals no cash
Cops got no cash
Church got more cash
Swipe swipe no cash


Swipe swipe no cash swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash swipe swipe no cash

Though apartheid was officially terminated in 1994
Throughout South Africa neighbourhoods are mainly structurally segregated
And the vast majority of black citizens remain involve in grounding poverty

I'm from a broken society
Lowest part of the economy
Colonizers stole the land from us
But I'm not about the polotik
Bottom line we at the bottom still
You gotta buy the land you want some property
Wasn't educated properly
Fuck I know about a title deed
Prolly catch me at the intersection with a sign that says
Please hire me no food no money
No one to look up to or inspire me
The only people who survive here doing crime here that's the irony
But my people tired of crying here busy dying here
At the bottom of the crab bucket that we call society
Hospitals got no cash cop stations no vans
Skater kids got no Vans skater park got no ramps
Thugs hang around and gang bang
Kids caught up in the crossfire over turf wars gangland

Swipe swipe no cash
My people ride or die no gas
For the right price know some bad guys who could drive by your mans
Night night no lullaby yeah I'm talking about the other side
My people come from the other side
Where you either overcome or otherwise
Become a victim of a system
Perfectly designed for you to not survive in
Like when nyaope hit the township
Had them teenage boys wilding
Lives lost over violence gun shots screams sirens
Cameras ain't go live then
They forgot about us I remind them

High schools no cash
Bottle stores more cash
Corner stores no cash
Prostitutes more cash
Hospitals no cash
Cops got no cash
Church got more cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
Swipe swipe no cash
