Black Boy Fly (Bonus Track) - Kendrick Lamar (肯德里克·拉馬爾)

So I'm saying What up what up

Ni**a you made it

So I'm saying What up what up

Ni**a you made it

So I'm saying What up what up

Ni**a you made it

So I'm saying What up what up

Ni**a I hate it

So I'm saying What up what up

Ni**a I hate it

Frustrated and I'm riding

Down the back streets

Making my conscious ask me

Would I survive to make

It up out this hole in time

Black boy fly

Black boy fly

Black-black boy fly

Black boy fly

 

I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo

I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo

He was the one to follow

He was the only leader

Foreseeing brighter tomorrows

He would live in the gym

We was living in sorrow

Total envy of him

He made a dream become a reality

Actually making it possible to swim

His way out of Compton with

Further more to accomplish

Graduate with honors

A sponsor of basketball scholars

It's 2004 and I'm watching him

Score 30

Remember vividly how them

Victory points had hurt me

Cause every basket was

A reaction or a reminder

That we was just moving backwards

The bungalow where you find us

The art of us ditching classes

Heading nowhere fast

Stick my head inside the study hall

He focused on math

Determination ambition

Plus dedication and wisdom

Qualities he was given

Was the sh*t we didn't have

Dug inside of his book bag and

Coach Palmer asked for his finals

He had his back like a spinal meanwhile

We singing the same

Old song spinning the vinyl

11 graders gone wrong

He focused on the NBA we

Focused on some Patron

Now watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

Black boy

I used to jealous of Jayceon

I used to jealous of Jayceon

Taylor when I was young

Taylor made a career out

Of music from writing songs

A Buick had driven past bumping

Him when I mowed the lawn

Money laundering hustling

Homies pondering up against

Schemes to make a million

Even if doing you harm

War's the case and just in

Case you wasn't alarmed

The city had fought with firearms

And many had died before dawn

Its 2004 and I'm hearing the people roar

For the name of The Game

They line in front of the store

Swap meets selling our mixtapes

I'm like oh sh*t wait

Don't wanna be another ni**a

Stuck regretting mistakes

Mixed feelings was my opinion

I was defending my insecurities

Chillin my conscience next to a villain

Compton made you

Believe success wasn't real

Be honest none of us knew of a record deal

So as I peel through these lottery tickets

I see a Harley Davidson truck

Visit the same plaza we shopped

A tall ni**a hopped out with

Jordans and a white tank top

He was top of the rap game

We was the top of the block

So watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

Black boy fly

Watch that black boy fly

 

Black boy

My mama didn't raise me

Up to be jealous-hearted

Like most of the winners call it

Regardless of where you stay

Hold your head and continue marching

That's what she said but in my

Head I wanted to be like Jordan

A Boy touring the country with

Money from mic recording

The only way out the ghetto

You know the stereotype

Shooting hoops or live on

The stereo like top 40

And shortly I got discouraged

Like every time I walked to

The corner had them guns bursting

Ni**a I was rehearsing

In repetition the phrase

Only one in a million

Will ever see better days

Especially when the crime

Waves was bigger than tsunamis

Break your boogie boards to

Pieces you just a typical homy

All these niggas facetious and

They all standing beside me

They all will buy me a chopper

If any one of you try me

What am I to do when every

Neighborhood is an obstacle

When 2 niggas making it out

Had never sounded logical

3 niggas making it out

That's mission impossible

So I never believed the type

Of performance that I could do

I wasn't jealous cuz

Of the talents they got

I was terrified they'll

Be the last black boys to fly

Out of Compton

 

Thank God
