  4. Raphae より:

    As I get a little older, I realize life is perspective
    And my perspective may differ from yours
    I wanna say thank you to everyone that’s been down with me
    For all my fans, all my beautiful fans
    Anyone who’s ever gave me a listen, all my people

    [Verse 1]
    I come from a generation of pain where murder is minor
    Rebellious and Margielas that trip you for designer
    Belt buckles and clout, overzealous if prone to violence
    Make the wrong turn, be a wheel of the will alignment
    Residue burned, missed at an inter-city
    Miscommunication to keep homo’ detective busy
    No protection is risky
    Desensitized, I vandalized pain, covered up and camouflaged
    Get used to hearin’ arsenal rain
    Analyze, risk your life, take the charge
    Homies done fucked your baby mama once you hit the yard, that’s culture
    Twenty-three hour lockdown that somebody caused
    Said your lil’ nephew was shot down, the culture’s involved
    I done seen niggas do seventeen, hit the halfway house
    Get out and get his brains blown out, lookin’ to buy some weed
    Car wash is played out, new GoFundMe accounts’ll proceed
    A brand-new victim’ll shatter those dreams, the culture

    I want, I want, I want, I want
    But I want you to want me too
    I want the hood, come on here, babe
    I want the hood
    (Look what I done for you)
    Look what I done for you
    Look what I done for you

    [Verse 2]
    I said I do this for my culture
    To let y’all know what a nigga look like in bulletproof Rover
    In my mama’s sofa
    Was a ddu-ddu popper, head trigger, walk up closer
    Ain’t no photoshoppin’
    Friends bipolar, grab you by your pockets
    No option if you froze up, always play the offense
    Niggas goin’ to work and sellin’ work, late for work
    Workin’ late, prayin’ for work, but you don’t paperwork
    That’s the culture, point the finger, promote ya
    Remote location, witness protection, they gon’ hold ya
    The streets got me fucked up, y’all can miss me
    I wanna represent, for us
    New revolution was up and movin’
    I’m in Argentina wiping my tears full of confusion
    Water in between us, another peer’s been executed
    History repeats again
    Make amends, then find a nigga with the same skin to do it
    But that’s the culture, crack a bottle
    Hard to deal with the pain when you’re sober
    By tomorrow, we forget the remains, we start over
    That’s the problem
    Our foundation was trained to accept whatever follows
    Dehumanize, insensitive
    Scrutinize the way we live for you and I
    Enemies shook my hand, I can promise I’ll meet you
    In a land where no equal is your equal
    Never say I ain’t told ya, nah
    In the land where hurt people hurt more people
    Fuck callin’ it culture

    I want, I want, I want, I want
    But I want you to want me too
    I want the hood, come on here, babe
    I want the hood
    (Look what I done for you)
    Look what I done for you
    Look what I done for you

    Take the drums out
    (Phew, phew, phew)

    [Verse 3]
    Celebrate new life when it come back around
    The purpose is sendin’ lessons we learnin’ now
    Sacrifice personal gain over everything
    Just to see the next generation better than ours
    I wasn’t perfect in skin, I was in and truly suffered
    Tempetation and patience, everything that the body nurtures
    I felt the good, I felt the bad, and I felt the worry
    But all I know is my productivity has stayed urgent
    Face your fears, always knew that I would make it here
    Where the energy is magnified and perservered
    Consciousness is syncronized and crystal clear
    Euphoria is glorified and made His
    Reflectin’ on my life and what I done
    Paid dues, made rules changed outta love
    Them same views made schools change curriculums
    But didn’t change me starin’ down the barrel of the gun
    Shit, I feel resentful, had to see my full potential
    Shit, I feel regret about the good that I was into
    Everything is everything, this ain’t coincidental
    I wake up that morning with more heart to give you
    As I bleed through the speakers, feel my presence
    To my brother, to my kids, I’m in Heaven
    To my mother, to my sis, I’m in Heaven
    To my father, to my wife, I am serious, this is Heaven
    To my friends, make sure you countin’ them blessings
    To my fans, make sure you make them investments
    And to the killer that sped up my demise
    I forgive you, just know that your soul is in question
    I seen the pain in your pupil when that trigger had squeezed
    And though you did me gruesome, I was surely relieved
    I completed my mission, wasn’t ready to leave
    But fulfilled my days, my Creator was pleased
    I can’t stress how I love y’all
    I don’t need to be in flesh just to hug y’all
    The memories recollect just because y’all
    Celebrate me with respect
    The unity we protect is above all
    And Sam, I’ll be watchin’ over you
    Make sure my kids watch all my interviews
    Make sure you live all the dreams we produce
    Keep that genius in your brain on the move
    And to my neighborhood, let the good prevail
    Make sure them babies and their leaders outta jail
    Look for salvation when troubles get real
    ‘Cause you can’t keep the world until you help yourself
    And I can’t blame the hood the day that I was killed
    Y’all had to see it, that’s the only way to feel
    And though my physical won’t reap the benefits
    The energy that carries on emits still
    I want you

  5. Nkanyiso Mabaso より:

    I’m in awe of how he stays low-key for years and then comes back with the most relevant energy, topics and updated art. Nothing he says ever feels aged, but you can tell it’ll last forever

  6. Zyrian より:

    This is why we should all be happy he took his time, whenever he releases you know you got his best effort

  7. Sir_T より:

    This was DEEP.
    He even payed Homage to our Brothers.
    That’s A King right there.

  8. Heather Aucoin より:

    This brought tears to my eyes
    He makes it look effortless
    It flows from his soul
    He makes poetry from pain
    His art can never be damaged

  9. source より:

    This wasn’t a song, this was an experience.

  10. Mikasacus より:

    i don’t know if i’m going to survive this album

  11. Felipe Flores より:

    We love you Kendrick this is incredible can’t wait to dissect what you just gave us

  12. Jretoven より:

    This one of the best experiences to exist in hip hop in a long time. Creativity, real lyrics, a message, the sample, everything. The Heart series got me through alot and this one hit me just as hard if not harder. That part with nip and kobe get me everytime.

  13. Michael Rutherford より:

    I’m a old head (62) and let me tell u, that was thee most creative, most powerful video of all time. My Lord, that blew me away!!!♥️

  14. nickisnotgreen より:

    i think everyone can agree that we were in a much different place in our lives when the heart part 4 came out

  15. 驢子抨擊團FWC SQUADKUM DONKEY より:

    Kendrick shooked the world with only a side project. Can’t wait for the new album

  16. Kyle Aiden より:

    If this is a taste of what’s coming, I’m so ready for that double album.
