Canibus - Aids is Gold, HIV is Platinum lyrics

Your rating:


Yo yo, I just appeared outta nowhere, 1980 was the year

Engineered as a biological weapon of warfare

Now with this I generate with more fear

Even though back then nobody cared and people wasn't as scared

I never used to get so much attention

Most of the top contenders at the time I was good friends with

For instance my man small pox was hot

He used to SoundScan ten thousand a week and that was a lot

That nigga Hepatitis B, he was hyper than me

He used to get between twelve and twenty thousand a week

Alcohol was the neighborhood star

Bubbling, drugs had niggaz juggling 

All kinds of controlled substances

My man cancer was like Charles Manson

Cigarettes almost made the Surgeon General ban them

Homicide was buggin cause he had guns to amp them

And I was on the low amp cause I had a plant kid

Chorus: Canibus and Lisa Stone (repeat 2X)

Aids is gold and HIV was platinum

Sit down, ask them where you get your facts from

Five hundred thousand niggaz in the hood with it

And a million more niggaz is gettin ready to get it


Yo, yo, now that millions is dead I'm considered widespread

Number one on the top ten and considered a world wide threat

To all the kids, thirteen to twenty-three tryin

Sex, unsafe sex, you niggaz need to use latex

H-I-V will progress to A-I-D-S

And transform your warm blooded bones to dry flesh

By stressing the immune system 

Promiscuous men and women trying to avoid

getting the micro-organism in them

from running up in it raw

Ready and willing, a couple of minutes of a good feeling

is what'll kill them

Break ya body down in steps, breath for breath

In the hospital wit less then a dozen T-cells left




I went from "Killing Them Softly" to killing them harshly

Minorities from twenty to forty can't afford to ignore me

They do my dirty work for me - goin to 

raunchy ass parties where they be havin orgies to transport me

Through the semen and blood, needles and drugs

Choose which one of the two demons in evil you trust

Cause the only way I could be detected

is by getting tested and most people don't question

the person they having sex with

as to whether or not they infected

Even the people you already slept wit 

wouldn't suspect that they can catch it

Forty percent of the AIDS patients is Afro-Americans

And we only twelve percent of the population

That statement is a fact, latinos and blacks face it

It came straight from the World Health Organization

Its the iron fist, scientist, slash rhyme-chiatrist

Here to diagnose that we dyin quick

Chorus 2X
