Song ReviewsEdit

1. "Ace Hood brings some heat with this HOOD BANGER song called Another Statistic.The beat is sick.It is produced by Cardiak. He totally goes in on the beat.He speaks some truth of the current situation in his area which involves a lot corruption.He talks about how the youth is moving towards wrong direction of crimes.He blames the police and government for all the mismanagement.Martin Luther King gets a special nod in the song for his contribution in the black community.I think he sampled Luther King's speech in the track. Ace Hood prays that crimes perishes for ever. He drives to bring unity through this track."

                                                                                                                                          - Review By Mohit Dhawan of New HipHop 1


2. "...the societal slant behind “Another Statistic” don’t sound organic. On the latter track, Ace Hood admirably pursues the issue of injustice within America, but his execution along with lyrical references to Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are unconvincing (“Martin Luther King had a dream and my niggas do too / While Emmett Till beat and killed and gouged like a fruit”)."

                                                                                                                                                      - Review By Edwin Ortiz of HipHopDX


3. "Another Statistic" finds Ace trying to be more political yet street, think Jeezy on the Recession, and not just when channeling the name of Trayvon Martin as he does in the first verse either. "

                                                                                                                                      - Yet Another Hip-Hop Blog: Album Review- Ace Hood - Trials and Tribulations


4. "On the following track, “Another Statistic”, the theme is worldlier, with Ace addressing the difficulties young black men face growing up in America. He references the Trayvon Martin incident, describing the fallen teen as “another young innocent brother who met a bully”."

                                                                                                                                                      - William Cannon's Review On HotNewHipHop

LyricsEdit

Another statistic, nah

I just wanna live in Gods cubicle, far away from Lucifer

Not a slave, gold chains compliment the mula' much

Rather see me crucified, police are the crucifiers

Shoot us up and dig a ditch, this ain't nothin' new to us

Murders happen every day, kids on their merry way

Dyin' before they're 21, bullets never had a name

God bless Trayvon Martin I'm in my hoodie

Another innocent young brother who met a bully

Man this poor world is fucked up

Hard times, tough luck

Section 80, food stamps, jobs never hired us

I'm just tryna' fulfill my wishlist

Don't wanna be another statistic



Don't wanna be another statistic

Don't wanna be another statistic

Another statistic



No matter what obstacles come our way

No matter how much they're trying to keep us down

Nothing should stop us from being victorious

We shall fight

We will never give up

We will never give in

We shall take it to the mountain top

Nobody could hold us down, I say nobody



Martin Luther King had a dream and my niggas do too

While Emmett Till beat and killed and gouged like a fruit

Reason why them youngin's untamable as a youth

And fuck the government cause' they trying to disguise truth

I send my prayers out to mankind

Not enough graduations but too many crimes

Pay attention as a parent gotta peep the signs

Feeling like a book is corny so they keep a nine

Lord bless em' got me stressin' while I'm raising mine

See in the hood people think you won't amount to nothing

Funny, I made a million out of 10 cents

Don't wanna be another statistic (preach)



Don't wanna be another statistic

Don't wanna be another statistic

Another statistic



We refuse to be apart of divine violence

We refuse to be stepped on

We gotta stand for something

We don't fall for anything, stand up

What's all the pain you been through?

It's time, It's time to stand as one

Stand up for one another

We will not lose



Niggas getting murdered with burners few in the sternum

Jot it in my journal why killers are so determined

I keep on preachin' defeat the demons in every sermon

Just watch the people that meet and greet ya'

Some aren't worthy

Some friends aren't friends, they dirty need some detergent

So many tragedies around the world, I'm praying urgent

I'm just trying to become a blessing and serve a purpose

Nobody's perfect, I'm still sinning just have mercy

While we killing our own people

Boston Massachusetts bombed by some thrill seekers

It's just so tragic, many perished I could barely witness

Don't wanna be another statistic (pray)



Don't wanna be another statistic

Don't wanna be another statistic

Another statistic
