What Harriet Tubman would say if she could rap ... #QueenTubman
HARRIET - THE CONDUCTOR by @smarthiphop
Track & Producer: @secservice
A station is a safe house where the runaways go,
And the runaway slaves are considered cargo.
The person who hid them is considered a station master.
And the stockholder’s the one who would put the cash up.
Me, I’m the conductor! I transported the cargo.
Routes that I took remained secret. I took an oath!
Boss on my train! You get on! There is no rebelling!
A grown man said he’s turning back and I had to tell him:
Fam, why’d you have me bring the metal out?
Cock it back, point it at your head and bring the devil out?
There’s NO going back! Besides, you’re gonna snitch!
And I’ll kill you where you stand before you sing behind the whip!
Running from slave catchers, a bounty on my head.
Until my whole fam is free, I don’t really care.
Had a 10-year span with 19 or so trips.
I done freed so many slaves, they’re calling me Moses!
During the Civil War, because of my skills, I became the first woman to lead an armed assault.
I am HARRIET TUBMAN. You need to fall back!
A Conductor. I never ran my train off the track!
