Down With The King: 25 Martin Luther King Jr. Rap References

18. Young Buck "War Witcha Homeboy" (2006)

Album: Case Dismissed!
Producer: DJ Drama
Label: N/A
Lyric: "Started with a dream like Martin Luther King/'Til the Feds came sayin' my whole fuckin' team/Had to switch my game up."

The former G-Unit soldier invokes Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream—of an America that rises beyond the racism that has tainted its history—to describe the rise and fall of a drug-dealing enterprise. He then tears into his former friend D-Tay, whom he would subsequently go after “with guns and shit, asking the lord, 'How did it come to this?'”
