KENDRICK LAMAR lyrics : "Compton Life"

(Hook) x2
Chevy lights, women you like
Husslin' nights, homie that's Compton life

Rollin' dice, gangsta rights
Hood advice, homie that's Compton life


(Verse 1)
I'm back at it again
My city back at it with ?em

Back against the wall K got that tryin' the pin
But they can $#[email protected] with that pen
The %#@! I write is brighter than blue gems

You better stay in the gym
Exercise your mind till it's strong enough
To $#[email protected] with mine

Stick to my roots like black tard and m
I'm black with thoughts of Einstein
One word describing him, genius

What you know about the city I'm living
With the souls of the dead it's livin
You don't know about our living conditions

We live righteously, we can't give a $#[email protected] about your opinion
But it's more than just weed and women, gangsters , husslers
Bullet collisions, players , pimps

Who can envision the place where I reside
Where Eazy was pitching, Dre was 6'4 lifting
NWA had mansion, quick at the turn tables

Mixin the first ones to say $#[email protected] the system
I'm tryin to tell you about


(Hook) x2
Chevy lights, women you like
Husslin' nights, homie that's Compton life

Rollin' dice, gangsta rights
Hood advice, homie that's Compton life


(Verse 2)
His own street like concrete
Would best describe fit his gutter

But see I'm what's underneath
A young gun but not like your young Chris and Eve
I'm from the land of organized crime

Disorderly peace
?Cause nowadays ^!$$%s hussle when they order their peace
And worship their gun the same as their religious beliefs

The Compton shares can't forget the police
?Cause in the hood tellin pigs no more
It be the mark of the beast

And their main aim is just the talk of the streets
But when you see ?em please be quick on your feet
That they go , watch em!?

Had you for road kill just like a possum
You could contain ?em
But there's no way that you could stop ?em

^!$$%s plant their seeds to be gangstas
Hoping one day they blossom
The same time, hope the system don't lock ?em

?Cause Compton raise ^!$$%s and (*##$es we barely got ?em
Unless you talk about the one with the attitude problem
From Rose crest to central, Compton's Anthemia

We back that's for my people it's official

(Hook) x2

Chevy lights, women you like
Husslin' nights, homie that's Compton life
Rollin' dice, gangsta rights

Hood advice, homie that's Compton life

(Verse 3)

I don't know if he new around here
Ye it's good to know somebody if you're new around here
?Cause it ain't too safe for you to cruise around here

^!$$%s stick to your $$# like glue around here
Take New Jersey and fit it %#@! whatever you don't care
It ain't no magic trick if they make your %#@! disappear

The outcome is severe, and some of this casket will last a day
But I'm amazed 'cause the young boy been here for years
I seen ^!$$%s shed blood blood tears
Hope you not try to plan for the future ^!$$%s will mute you
Had your door in the morning wake you up like roosters

Introduce you to rugers
Clock you in like Tap Judah
A nightmare on my street, Fred Krueger where I live
Minus the actress and the producers
Even adolenscence will shoot you over that paper

We get vapors like Biz Markie but still I'm used to
From Rose crest to central, Compton's Anthemia
We back that's for my people it's official

(Hook) x2

Chevy lights, women you like
Husslin' nights, homie that's Compton life
Rollin' dice, gangsta rights
Hood advice, homie that's Compton life
