Dedication (feat. Kendrick Lamar)

歌詞

Look, my ***** this is dedication, this is anti-hesitation

This a real ***** celebration,

This a Dime Blocc declaration

Fifty-Ninth and Fifth Ave,

Granny's house with vanilla wafers

This the remedy, the separation, 2Pac of my generation

Blue pill in the ******' Matrix,

Red rose in the gray pavement

Young black ***** trapped and he can't change it

Know he a genius, he just can't claim it

'Cause they left him no platforms to explain it

He frustrated so he get faded

But deep down inside he know you can't fade him

How long should I stay dedicated?

How long 'til opportunity meet preparation?

I need some real ***** reparations

'Fore I run up in your bank just for recreation

Dedication, hard work plus patience

The sum of all my sacrifice, I'm done waitin'

I'm done waitin', told you that I wasn't playin'

Now you hear what I been sayin', dedication

It's dedication, look

I spent my whole life thinkin' out the box

Boxin' homies three-on-one, got DP'ed but I ain't drop

Chirp on me, here I come, brrt, spin around the block

They blurped on me,

Said I ran a stop sign but that's a lie

I spent my whole life starin' at the stage

Playin' Sega, daddy smokin' sherm, mama playin' spades

Catchin' vapors,

Grandma said I'd get some Jordans for my grades

That's my baby,

When she died my heart broke a hundred ways

I spent my whole life tryna make it, tryna chase it

The cycle of a black man divided, tryna break it

You take a loss, **** don't cry about it, just embrace it

Minor setback for major comeback, that's my favorite

My ***** L said: "You do a song with Nip,

K. Dot he a better crip"

I said he a man first, you hear the words out his lips?

About flourishing from the streets to black businesses?

Level four yard livin' given to false imprisonment

Listen close my *****,

It's bigger than deuces and fours my *****

Since elementary we close my *****,

Yeah, straight like that

I give you the game,

Go back to the turf and give it right back

For generations we been dealt bad hands with bad plans

Prove your dedication by hoppin' out Grand Am's

I'm at the premiere politickin' with Top, Nip, and Snoop

Damn, Pac watchin' the way we grew, from dedication

If it ain't congratulate then it look like hate

If it ain't congratulate then it look like what, Nipsey?

Hol' up!

This ain't entertainment,

It's for ****** on the slave ship

These songs just the spirituals

I swam against them waves wit

Ended up on shore to their amazement

I hope the example I set's not contagious

Lock us behind gates but can't tame us

Used to be stay safe, now it's stay dangerous

'Cause ain't no point in playin' defense *****

That's why I dove off the deep end *****,

Without a life jacket

Couple mil, tour the world, now my life crackin'

Cook the books, bring it back so it's no taxes

Royalties, publishing, plus I own masters

I'll be damned if I slave for some white crackers

I was mappin' this out, I hit the heights backwards

Hoppin' out the eighty-five in Reebok classics

Ran a couple marathons just to get established

To make it happen, you got to have it

Dedication, hard work plus patience

The sum of all my sacrifice, I'm done waitin'

I'm done waitin', told you that I wasn't playin'

Now you hear what I been sayin', dedication

It's dedication
