Story

I wrote my first anti-drug song in 1989 when my son DeWayne was in the 5th grade and performed it at his D.A.R.E. graduation. I had already been going around the state for the past three years sharing my "Rappin 4 JESUS" presentation in churches throughout KY, Ohio, and Indiana, and the response to my first anti Drug Rap at the D.A.R.E. graduation was so positive, I wrote more anit-drugs songs and I've been performing for D.A.R.E., Just Say No, and TLC (Teen Leaders Conference against Drugs) for more than 17 years. This song was written around 1993, in part while my family and I were on vacation in Atlanta, Georgia, and all the kids where helping me to rhyme all the slang names for the drugs. Tons of fun.

Lyrics

DRUG FREE (3:17) I’m bustin a rhyme, but it’s for your mind: You better look before you leap. Gonna take you to school, and give you some tools, If it’s wisdom that you seek1 I don’t need to use, no need to abuse, my body, I’m no fool! 2 I won’t even try, and that’s no lie, Takin drugs won’t make me cool. One pill, one draw, one drink, one puff, and you think that that’s alright! You can’t hold a job, you can’t think in school, If drugs is a way of life. It's for you to decide and you better be wise, some don't get a second try. It may look like fun but before you're done, it may be your last high. (Chorus) I said I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! You say (the guys) I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! I said I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! Ladies! I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! Verse 2 The most abused drug of all is alcohol, Hard liquor, beer, and wine. 3 Booze, juice, sauce and brew, Some of the names it's call sometimes. It's suicide, to drink and drive, Or ride with one who does. People die everyday, whole families, From an alcohol related buzz. Like alcohol, barbiturates can be addicted when abused. Downers, barbs, blue devils, red devils, Yellow jackets, to name a few. They affect your nervous system by slowing down the functions of your brain. Slow motor skills-CAN GET YOU KILLED! OR CAUSE A LOT OF GRIEF AND PAIN!!! (Chorus) Verse 3 Amphetamines, are stealing dreams Of young people everyday. Poppin pills, tryin to catch a thrill. As their lives ebb away, listen! Pep pills, crystals, crank and beanies, Uppers, wake-ups, speed, and black beauties. Hearts and crosses, bumble bees, Just a few names of Amphetamines. Heart rate pumpin, eyes wide open, For some it's just a game. Many have tried, some have died, From a life in the fast lane. LISTEN!!! ADDICTION'S REAL, and It's no thrill, To get the monkey off your back! So let's get real, hospitals are filled, With babies born on CRACK!!! (Chorus) Verse4 Hallucinogens mess with your mind, Distorts reality. Angel dust, rocket fuel, dummy dust, super cools, Are names of PCP. Opium, Heroin, Morphine, and Codeine, Are narcotic analgesics. Don't be a dummy, and get hook on these, These are DEADLY drug habits. Sniffing glue, and hair spray TOO! WHAT ARE YOU! OUT OF YOUR MIND?!!! IF YOU CAN'T BREATHE! YOU'RE HISTORY, AND IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME! Yeah, I told you cool, I'd take you to school, Now for everyone's concern. Don't take a risk, now get with it, and USE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED!!! 4 (Chorus) I said I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! You say (the guys) I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! I said I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free! Ladies! I'm proud to be, I'm proud to be, To be drug free!
