Voiceover

(Lyrics) 
For my theme song 
My leather black jeans on 
My by-any-means on 
Pardon, I'm getting my scream on 
Enter the kingdom 
But watch who you bring home 
They see a black man with a white woman 
At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong 
Middle America packed in 
Came to see me in my black skin 
Number one question they're askin' 
Come on homie what happened? 
I'm aware I'm a wolf 
Soon as the moon hit 
I'm aware I'm a king 
Four in the mornin', and I'm zonin' 
I think I'm possessed, it's an omen 
I keep it 300 like the Romans 
300 bitches, where the Trojans? 
Baby, we livin' in the moment 
I've been a menace for the longest 
But I ain't finished, I'm devoted 
And you know it, and you know it 
So follow me up but there's nowhere to go 
I'm doing 500, I'm outta control (now) 
But there's nowhere to go (now) 
And there's no way to slow (down) 
If I knew what I knew in the past 
I would've been blacked out on your ass

What is black? 
Black is not a colour 
Black is a mindset 
Black creates 
Black is an attitude 
Black got swag 
Black dances to a different beat 
Black says why not 
Black writes its own rules 
Black believes 
Made of black 
 
Guinness Foreign Extra Stout 
Guinness Made of More
