Lil' white b***h gon' say

"You need to say something about that"

"You need to say somethin' 'bout black—"

b***h, suck my—

Yeah

Go time

 

That ain't in your religion, you just followin' your mammy

She followed your granny, she obeyed master

Did y'all even ask her? Questions, it's holes in them stories

Is it, holes in your blessings? Yeah, I'm bold with the message

I know I ain't got the answer

But I ain't gon' cheerlead with y'all just to be a dancer

I'ma groove to my own drums, sunlight in my shadow, baby

Move 'til my soul comes, let them serpents rattle, baby

 

Crackin' like broke porcelain, b***h

We ocean deep if you just pour us in a portion of sh*t

Them people try to twist my view on some contortionist sh*t

I had to reevaluate what was important and sh*t (O-F)

Finders, keepers, when you creep inside my mind it's madness (Yeah)

If I see peace, I'm like a fiend (Ooh), uh, gotta have it

Lord, cover me I'm goin' in, walls closin' in (Uh)

How I'm supposed to be protected (Huh?) when the laws want us in?

Y'all want us dead, just 'cause the skin is the black type (Ah)

Teach me everything and be amazed I don't act right

What the f**k?

I'm tappin' the matrix, I'm back and they hate it

I'm black and make 'em pay me capital statements, you dig? (Ching)

Word on my back, I'm tryna fashion a statement

I ain't no bastard, we the master of the path that we blazin', you dig? (What?)

(On God, now)

 

I came a long way from my past, nigga, it's obvious

V12 engine, I'm fishtailin' on some sloppy sh*t (Skrrt)

Internet bringin' old lyrics up, like I hide the sh*t

What's your address, I could probably send you a copy, b***h

I was canceled before canceled was with Twitter fingers (Haha)

Protestin' outside my shows, I gave them the middle finger (f**k 'em)

I was a teener, tweetin' Selena crazy sh*t

Didn't wanna offend her, apologize when I seen her

Back when I was tryna f**k Bieber, Just-in

I say with my chest out, you say with your chest in, nigga (Say it with your chest, nigga)

Black bodies hanging from trees, I cannot make sense of this (Uh)

Hit some protest up, retweeted positive messages (Uh)

Donated some funds then I went and copped me a necklace

I'm probably a coon, and your standard's based on this evidence

Am I doin' enough or not doin' enough?

I'm tryna run with the baton, but see, my shoe's in the mud

I feel like anything I say, dawg, I'm screwin' sh*t up (Sorry)

So I just tell these black babies, they should do what they want

Freedom, need 'em, my niggas, seen 'em

Free 'em, don't f**k with the law like, damn, Gina

So calm the f**k down before we duck rounds

And fireballs that make your family have to duck the f**k down

We frontline, we got the mazel tov that we can chuck now (Woo)

'Cause anytime we movin' up, it's like a "What the f**k now?"

They playin' games, we strappin' up, we cockin' aim (Yeah)

We aim to shoot, we shoot to claim what we need

We done with pain and the grievin', niggas is done with the peace

Whether it's personal or for the whole of niggas, indeed (Yah)

I might not have dreadlocks, I might have these gold teeth

But I'm a nigga like you, and you's a nigga like me (Yeah)

So let's be niggas together, and let's be niggas with plans

But put this plastic on first, 'cause sh*t is hittin' the fan, Scott

 

sh*t like this make me wanna turn my baseball cap to the side

You know, with the T.I. lean

Y'all fake mad

Catch up, niggas

Gettin' y'all identity, huh?

Gangsta Grillz

Go get a f**kin' hobby

sh*t

Ain't nobody perfect

 

Well, at least y'all ain't, hah
