[Introduction]
Happy New Year
All of us wasn’t fortunate enough to see the new year
So we got to send our condolences

[Chorus]
They say why when somebody die
It’s always kind words said
Cuz you never suppose to speak ill of the dead
Take these bars and play em in the Cemetary
This is the 2016 Obituary

[Verse 1]
Mohammad Ali, the greatest boxer, a leader
When he spoke, his words rhymed, motivational speaker
Born June 17th, 1942
In Kentucky started boxing at age 12 it’s true
He refused to serve in the army so they took his title
He spoke against the oppression of blacks, he was my idol
The cause of his death, respiratory Illness
Never seen a fighter display so much realness
Prince, the world know his name
I just want to see you dancing in the purple rain
Singer, writer, producer, play instruments
Very flamboyant, his style was different
Born June 7th 1958
His parents were musicians, he was destined to be great
Sold over 1 hundred million records, the Goat
The cause of his death, alledged overdose

[chorus]
When somebody die
It’s always kind words said
Cuz you never suppose to speak ill of the dead
Take these bars and play em in the Cemetary

Her mother died the next day, god bless
Phife dawg, one of hip hop’s best
From the legendary group, A Tribe Called Quest

The native tongue, they made rapping look easy
