A Next Media Animation / Jayse Wan of Good Lyfe Addikts collabo About the 53 percent rap song The 53 percent rap song is an ode to the struggles of a 53 percenter who, like others in her cohort, does not expect help from the government. Despite her troubles, she is fiercely proud of the hardships she must endure and believes in personality responsibility. Who are the 53 percent? "The 53 percent" is an opposition group to the 99 percent Occupy Wall Street movement. The 53 percent refers to the percentage of Americans reportedly paying federal income taxes. The group claims taxes would be forced higher should the 99 percent and Occupy Wall Street be successful in their goals, which are a "massive redistribution of wealth and an elimination of capitalism." The 53 percent have life struggles, just like everyone else. But this group does not believe the 1% of wealthy or government bears responsibility for fixing these problems. 53 percent rap song lyrics I wasn't born in a hospital, my momma's too poor I had to bite through my own umbilical cord Started working as a bagger at the age of twelve For Christmas I'd take a double shift as Santa's elf Tried to go to college, I had to take on debt Got knocked up, haven't graduated yet Spent my life slaving for a minimum wage Then I got laid off and now I'm middle aged But that don't bother me, coz my gang is 53 percent! mother fuckers, yeah you know me! Hold my sign for all to see, coz I'm down with 53. Represent! all my brothers, yeah you know me! Got cancer last year, shit went Stage Four Cut it out with a knife, threw the tumor on the floor You call it hard core? Public healthcare is for commies Suck it up 99. Go cry to your mommies. Took a sub-prime mortgage due to easy credit lending. B of A foreclosed my home, now my FICO is mending. I don't blame Wall Street coz I wanna be rich Till then I work three jobs. Man, life's a bitch. CROWD: 53 percenters, come help us fight! WOMAN: Fuck off, 99ers, I'll make it on my own alright? CROWD: How, 53ers, when you can't even make rent? WOMAN: Fuck off, 99ers, one day I'll be 1 percent! I don't blame the 1 percent for all my problems. Occupy Wall Street? You just want to tax and rob them. Gonna hang loose with my homie, Tony Bologna Pepper you hippies up like rice a roni Stop blaming bankers, shed your entitlement Real Americans don't ask for help from government If you're poor in USA you probably deserve it Get your ass to Mickey Ds, flip those burgers and work it.
