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 All my fans, all my beautiful fans Anyone who's ever gave me a listen, all my people I come from a generation of pain, where murder is minor Rebellious and Margielas'll chip you for designer Belt buckles and clout, overzealous if prone to violence Make the wrong turn, be it will or the wheel alignment Residue burned, missed at a inner-city Miscommunication to keep homi' 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 Iture Twenty-three hour lockdown, then somebody called 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, I want, I want, I want) I want the hood to want me back (I want, I want, I want, I want) I want the hood Look what I done for you (Look what I done for you) Look what I done for you I said I'd do this for my culture To let y'all know what a nigga look like in a bulletproof Rover In my mama's sofa was a doo-doo popper Hair 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 Nigga's goin' to work and sellin' work, late for work Workin' late, prayin' for work, but he on 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 the 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, I want, I want, I want) I want the hood to want me back (I want, I want, I want, I want) 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, phew Phew Celebrate new life when it come back around The purpose is in the lessons we learnin' now Sacrifice personal gain over everything Just to see the next generation better than ours I wasn't perfect, the skin I was in had truly suffered Temptation and patience, everything that the body nurtures I felt the good, I felt the bad, and I felt the worry But all-in-all, my productivity had stayed urging Face your fears, always knew that I would make it here Where the energy is magnified and persevered Consciousness is synchronized and crystal-clear Euphoria is glorified and made His Reflectin' on my life and what I done Paid dues, made rules, change outta love Them same views made schools change curriculums But didn't change me starin' down the barrel of that gun Should I feel resentful I didn't see my full potential? Should I feel regret about the good that I was into? Everything is everything, this ain't coincidental I woke 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 your soul's 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 them lead us outta jail Look for salvation when troubles get real 'Cause you can't help 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 carry on emits still I want you
