has to negotiate with me.

Mmm. But you gave a b*tch

access to land,

which Corbin agreed to quite willingly.

You made a backdoor deal with Corbin?

to these white folks?! And for what?!

Crackers in Mississippi

trust, and sacrifice.

But that sister soon revealed
herself to be a snake!

'Cause you turned yo' back on us.

You turned yo' back on me.
