LYRICS, QUOTES & SAMPLES:

{Brian Bose @theboseshow} We’ve been cast in a movie, Chumpocalypse – But I ain’t about that life.  Woken up (YUP), now I know my duty as I shake my booty to obliterate this era of strife!
{“NO CHUMPS” Intro by Brian Bose} I won’t pledge allegiance to the flag of the divided states of american’t. And to the refublic for which it fails, one nation, under the one percent, the rest invisible. With liberty and justice for a –
{Toni Morrison} “[It’s the] racist white person, I don’t mean the person who is examining his consciousness and so on…doesn’t understand that he or she is also a race, it’s also constructed, it’s also made, and it also has some kind of serviceability… But when you take it away… I take your race away…and there you are, all strung out and all you got is your little self. And what is that? What are you without racism? Are you any good? Are you still strong? Are you still smart? Do you still like yourself? I mean these are the questions. If you can only be tall because somebody’s on their knees, then you have a serious problem. And my feeling is white people have a very, very serious problem and they should start thinking about what they can do about it. Take me out of it.”
{Dr. Tarece Johnson @drtarece} “To the allies of people of color, this is for you.”
{Cornel West} “We are witnessing America as a failed social experiment.”
(NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE)
{Brian Bose}You matter, until you multiply yourself times the speed of light squared. Then you ENERGY.”
{TEDx Talk “Dance your way to empowerment” by Brian Bose} “I want to leave you with a question, and it’s all about intention. Who are you slaying for? I’m slaying for people that have endured experiences where someone makes them feel insignificant, incapable, and inadequate. And I’m slaying for people that believe those degrading lies and tell them to themselves. I’m also slaying for my ancestors and for the public figures who have fought and sacrificed to manifest change for people of color and the LGBTQIA+ community. It does not take politics to be a good human being. It does not take policy to take care of one another. It takes some common sense, some empathy, and the active participation in the facilitation of safe spaces for all.”
{Brian Bose} I came to slay.”
{Reporter} Why do we hate?”
{Jane Elliott} “We hate because we’re taught to hate. We hate because we are ignorant – we are the product of ignorant people who have been taught an ignorant thing which is that there are four or five different races. There are not four or five different races there is only one race on the face of the earth and we are all members of that race; the human race. But we have separated people into races so some of us can see ourselves as superior to the others. We thought, it would work. I guess it hasn’t worked! That has been bad for everyone! It’s time to get over this business! There is no gene for racism. There’s no gene for bigotry. You’re not born a bigot! You have to learn to be a bigot. Anything you learn, you can unlearn. It is time to unlearn our bigotry! It is time to get over this thing. And we best get over it pretty soon. My business as an educator, to lead people out of ignorance. The ignorance of thinking, that you’re better or worse than someone else, because of the amount of a pigment in your skin. Pigmentation in your skin has nothing to do with intelligence or with your worth as a human being. It is time to get over that.”
{TEDx Talk “Dance your way to empowerment” – Brian Bose}Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Brian Bose. I am a Nigerian, Belizean, Guatemalan, Jamaican, and Indian American. My mom raised me to be aware of society’s assumptions of who I am, stand taller, take up space, and tell the world, “I know what you want me to be, but I’m going to show you exactly who I am.” The struggle is real y’all…when it comes to loving yourself. It’s a practice, not some fixed entity to be obtained. It’s a continual unraveling from disempowering thought systems we’re programmed to believe about ourselves.”
{“NO CHUMPS” A RAP VISUAL by Brian Bose}
[VERSE 1]
We’ve been conned and we’ve been trolled
Never let a Chump come and take control
Tweeting # LOVETRUMPSHATE
I don’t mess with fools who really love Chump’s hate
Hate me cuz I’m black? – you’re fired
Hate me cuz I’m gay? – you’re fired
Hate me cuz I slay? – bitch, you’re tired (tired)
Retire!
You’re not inspired!
Climate is changing folks
Chumps think that it’s all a hoax
Wall Builders who’ll grab your yolks, yo
We laugh but it’s not a joke, bro
We’ve been cast in a movie
Chumpocalypse
But I ain’t about that life
Woken up (YUP) now I know my duty
As I shake my booty
To obliterate this era of strife

 

[CHORUS]
There’s no greater wealth
Than life in great health
And the love and respect that I feel for myself
I don’t really need
To get up in your face
To tell you I’m a human who’s allowed to take space
Don’t have too much melanin
No second class citizen 
I’m worthy of love
Trump shame
I rise above
All we have
Two emotions
Love or Fear
All the rest derivatives
Of the two
So what will you decide to be today
[HOOK]
I love myself. I mean every single thing. From the color of my skin. To my soul energy. 
I do my dance like
I do my dance like
I do my do my do my do my do my dance like
We do our dance like
We do our dance like
We do our do our do our do our do our dance like
[VERSE 3]
Don’t be conned and don’t be trolled
Be your own president and take control
Reclaim your precedence, assume the role
Protect your residence from Ozone holes
I’d like to build a wall around Trump’s mouth
Shut that shit down, don’t let a sound come out
Lock it up, eat the key, now let’s focus on what’s relevant
Like how to take the power from these selfish red elephants
1% using 1% of their minds
Tryna steal 99% of our shine
Do the math, solve the problem, we need recalculation
Find the path, we are worthy to be equal in this nation
You a solver? An evolver?
Or a devolver with revolvers?
Going gagagagaga targets locked on POC
Come on GOP, we have all the proof you ever need
Own up (own up)
Get it tight (get it tight)
Do better (do better)
Get it right (get it right)
I need to see it to believe it
Need to feel it to receive it
All this hate is an illness
Hate my words but it’s just realness
{TEDx Talk “Dance your way to empowerment” – Brian Bose}So, given that life is short, who are you slaying for? Who are you creating safe spaces for? How do we actualize change and make it happen? So SLAY. Slay your way. Slay your way to empowerment and slay for the children. We all need it.”
{Neil Degrasse Tyson} “If everyone had the luxury of expressing the unique combinations of talents in this world, our society would be transformed overnight.”
