Lil Baby
Protests and growing national outcry continuesOver the death of George FloydLast night, people protesting in Minneapolis escalatedAs demonstrators were lashed by tear gas and rubber bulletsThe main message here, the main message here, the main message hereIs that they want to see those officers involvedThey want to see those officers arrestedOfficers arrested(I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe)
Trade my 4 x 4 for a G63, ain’t no more free Lil SteveI gave ’em chance and chance and chance againI even done told them pleaseI find it crazy the police’ll shoot you and know that you deadBut still tell you to freezeFucked up, I seen what I seenI guess that mean hold him down if he say he can’t breathe
It’s too many mothers that’s grievingThey killing us for no reasonBeen going on for too long to get evenThrow us in cages like dogs and hyenasI went to court and they sent me to prisonMy mama was crushed when they said I can’t leaveFirst I was drunk, then I sobered up quickWhen I heard all that time that they gave to TaleebHe got a life sentence plus
We just some products of our environmentHow the fuck they gon’ blame us?You can’t fight fire with fireI know, but at least we can turn up the flames someEvery colored person ain’t dumb and all whites not racistI be judging by the mind and heart, I ain’t really into facesFucked up, the way that we livin’ is not getting betterYou gotta know how to surviveCrazy, I had to tell all of my loved onesTo carry a gun when they going outside
Stare in the mirror whenever you driveOverprotective, go crazy for mineYou gotta pay attention to the signsSeem like the blind following the blindThinking ’bout everything that’s going onI boost security up at my homeI’m with my kind if they right or they wrongI call him now, he’ll pick up the phoneAnd it’s five in the morning, he waking up on itTell ’em wherever I’m at, then they comin’I see blue lights, I get scared and start runnin’That shit be crazy, they ‘posed to protect us
Throw us in handcuffs and arrest usWhile they go home at night, that shit messed upKnowing we needed help, they neglect usWondering who gon’ make them respect usI can see in your eye that you fed upFuck around, got my shot, I won’t let upThey know that we a problem togetherThey know that we can storm any weather
It’s bigger than black and whiteIt’s a problem with the whole way of lifeIt can’t change overnightBut we gotta start somewhereMight as well gon’ ‘head start hereWe done had a hell of a yearI’ma make it count while I’m hereGod is the only man I fear
Fuck it, I’m goin’ on the front lineHe gon’ bust your ass if you come past that gun lineYou know when the storm go away, then the sun shineYou gotta put your head in the game when it’s crunch timeI want all my sons to grow up to be monstersI want all my daughters to show out in publicSeems like we losing our countryBut we gotta stand up for something, so this what it comes to
Every video I see on my conscienceI got power, now I gotta say somethin’Corrupted police been the problem where I’m fromBut I’d be lying if I said it was all of themI ain’t do this for the trend, I don’t follow themAltercations with the law, had a lot of themPeople speaking for the people, I’m proud of themStick together, we can get it up out of them
I can’t lie like I don’t rap about killing and dopeBut I’m telling my youngins to voteI did what I did ’cause I didn’t have no choice or no hopeI was forced to just jump in and goThis bullshit is all that we know, but it’s time for a changeGot time to be serious, no time for no gamesWe ain’t takin’ no more, let us go from them chainsGod bless they souls, every one of them names
It’s bigger than black and whiteIt’s a problem with the whole way of lifeIt can’t change overnightBut we gotta start somewhereMight as well gon’ ‘head start hereWe done had a hell of a yearI’ma make it count while I’m hereGod is the only man I fear
They trainin’ officers to kill usThen shootin’ protestors with these rubber bulletsThey regular people, I know that they feel itThese scars too deep to heal usWhat happened to COVID? Nobody rememberIt ain’t makin’ sense, I’m just here to ventIt happen to one of your people, it’s differentWe get it, the system is wicked, just learn how to pick it
Knowledge is power, I swear I’m a witness, I know that I’m giftedI won’t go too deep ’cause I’m scared they’ll get meAin’t scared to admit it, some shit I can’t mentionIt’s people who can, well, here’s the chanceI won’t take the stand, but I’ll take a stand for what I believeMust not be breathing the air that I breatheYou know that the way that I bleed, you can bleed
I never been a fan of policeBut my neighborhood know I try to keep peaceSo it’s only right that I get in the streetsMarch for a reason, not just on GPOur people died for us to be freeFuck do you mean? This was a dreamNow we got the power that we need to haveThey don’t want us with it and that’s why they mad, yeah
It’s bigger than black and whiteIt’s a problem with the whole way of lifeIt can’t change overnightBut we gotta start somewhereMight as well gon’ ‘head start hereWe done had a hell of a yearI’ma make it count while I’m hereGod is the only man I fear
It’s bigger than black and whiteIt’s a problem with the whole way of lifeIt can’t change overnightBut we gotta start somewhereMight as well gon’ ‘head start hereWe done had a hell of a yearI’ma make it count while I’m hereGod is the only man I fear
