(intro: dash snow)
"i'll tell you what i don't believe in can i do that? alright i don't believe in laws or the system by any means whatsoever i try not to obey them at anytime that's what i believe in not believing it" "so what keeps you alive?" "four big b**ttles of water a day two packs of marlboro reds and uh i don't - what keeps me alive sh**t music i have to listen to music all day long i'd say that keeps me going i'm a pretty dark person i've though about ending it a million times and i have to say that music keeps me here by far the main thing" (verse 1: kendrick lamar)
thank you
sitting in the studio thinking about what mood would go
right now freestyle or write down whatever
it still'll come up clever
i just need to free to my thoughts and lord knows that i know better
but i ain't perfect and i ain't seen too many churches
or know them testament verses
you should either hear me now or go deaf
or end up dead die trying and know death
might end up dead swallow blood swallow my breath
f**ck a funeral just make sure you pay my music respect (n**gga)
i mean that from the bottom of my heart
you see my art is all i have
and victory tastes sweet even when the enemy can throw salt
still knock them out the park like a f**cking tow car
let bygones be bygones but where i'm from
we buy guns and more guns to give to the young
i'm living the life of a n**gga trapped n**gga
inside the system all you envision is trap n**ggas
my uncle doing life inside prison he wasn't wrapped too tight
he told me to rap about life not rap n**ggas
that's why i'm shaking my head when you rap dissin'
my stomach start turning my nerves get the twitching
i start evaluating then my final intuition
is that you wishing a come up would just come up
we used to beefing over a turf f**ck beefing over a verse
n**ggas dying motherf**ck a double entendre
and this is comp-ton lions in the land of the triumph
wrap saran our defiance ban our alliance
put burners in the hands of the black man
one hood with 20 four-four's like a cloned kobe bryant
you probably heard i wanna be heard and wonder who i am
you probably even listen to faith and think i know zion
but really i'm just caught in the loop of understanding the truth
because it seem like it's always clashing with science
i got a big fear of flying
my future so bright i'd probably go blind before i blink twice i ain't lying
i swear to god half of ya'll just don't know kendrick
the school of hardknocks we was the first ones in attendence
you walking down the block he got sh**t you are no eye witness
you just mind your bidness
you just turn your head kneel down and then tie your tennis
it's kind of scary ain't it?
you can't act like no b**tch that only got tyler perry famous
just let me explain this why you pick up that stainless
because your pops wasn't anxious
to see you and you hate it
so much you probably had your burner tucked at graduation
so if you see him on 'em bleachers then you kill him
facing 25 to life with a murder charge
your enemies was the prey and now you pray to god
i pray these bars get farther than compton
and if our record never break i still won't break my promise
i promise to keep it honest
secret society all we ask is trust
and all we lack is communication like service s**cks
the people scared of annihilation when kingdom come
and i'm like
the kendrick lamar od in less than a month alright?
gotta keep it pushing
can't let the government tell me how my future looking
i'm on rosecrans and central trying to duck the central bookins'
if the f**cking pigs get behind me then you know i'm bookin'
never will i surrender
i been a warrior when i came out my mom's placenta
in the gutter lane like i'm master splinter
how splendid i guess my project i did it
got all these n**ggas approaching they mixtapes different
they said seven tracks i said fifteen
called it an ep they said i'm trippin'
but little did they know i'm tryna' change the rules
that we've been confined to so the corporate won't make decisions
uppity b**tches handling business
killing our dreams stealing our vision
out in haiti adolescents barely have a home
in la everybody think they f**cking on
hop on twitter perpetrate we doing big sh**t
who we hanging with and bragging about the iphone
i swear to god most y'all cats just don't know kendrick
you barely know yourself so i guess most o' y'all should be offended
ain't doing this for my health i'm tryna' purchase my momma dem' benzes
occupying my time with riches justifying my time and ambitions
just to coincide just to go inside plus we idolize why we living
look the mastermind took the masters mind
just the perfect time just to master mine
just to match the grind with precision
look the mastermind took - (cough) (outro: alori joh)
we would like to call this an appreciation tape for those who recognized the kendrick lamar ep for this is the kendrick lamar od because of you we are overly dedicated
