DUCKWORTH. - 앨범
DUCKWORTH. (04:08) Kendrick Lamar
  • 가사
  • It was always me versus the world
    Until I found it's me vs me
    Why why why why?
    Why why why why?
    Just remember
    what happens on Earth stays on Earth
    We gon' put it in reverse

    Darling I told you many times
    And I am telling you once again
    Just to remind you sweetheart
    That my

    Oh Lamar
    Hail Mary and marijuana times is hard
    Pray with the hooligans shadows all in the dark
    Fellowship with demons and relatives I'm a star
    Life is one funny mothafucka
    A true comedian
    you gotta love him you gotta trust him
    I might be buggin' infomercials and no sleep
    Introverted by my thoughts
    Children listen it gets deep
    See once upon a time inside the Nickerson Garden projects
    The object was to process and digest poverty's dialect
    Adaptation inevitable

    gun violence crack spot
    Federal policies raid buildings and drug professionals
    Anthony was the oldest of seven
    Well-respected calm and collected
    Laughin' and jokin' made life easier
    Hard times Momma on crack
    A four-year-old tellin' his nanny he needed her

    His family history pimpin' and bangin'
    He was meant to be dangerous
    Clocked him a grip and start slangin'
    Fifteen scrapin' up his jeans with quarter pieces
    Even got some head from a smoker last weekend
    Dodged a policeman workin' for his big homie
    Small-time hustler graduated to a brick on him
    10000 dollars out of a project housing that's on the daily
    Seen his first mil twenty years old had a couple of babies
    Had a couple of shooters
    Caught a murder case fingerprints on the gun they assumin'
    But witnesses couldn't prove it
    That was back when he turned his back
    And they killed his cousin

    He beat the case and went back to hustlin'
    Bird-shufflin' Anthony rang
    The first in the projects with the two-tone Mustang
    That 5.0 thing they say 5-0 came
    Circlin' parking lots and parking spots
    And hoppin' out while harrassin' the corner blocks
    Crooked cops told Anthony he should kick it
    He brushed them off

    And walked back to the Kentucky Fried Chicken
    See at this chicken spot
    There was a light-skinned nigga that talked a lot
    With a curly top and a gap in his teeth
    He worked the window his name was Ducky
    He came from the streets the Robert Taylor Homes
    Southside Projects Chiraq the Terror Dome
    Drove to California with a woman on him and 500 dollars
    They had a son hopin' that he'd see college
    Hustlin' on the side with a nine-to-five to freak it
    Cadillac Seville he'd ride his son around on weekends
    Three-piece special with his name on the shirt pocket
    'Cross the street from the projects
    Anthony planned to rob it

    Stuck up the place before back in '84
    That's when affiliation was really eight gears of war
    So many relatives tellin' us sellin' us devilish works
    Killin' us crime intelligent felonious
    Prevalent proposition with 9's
    Ducky was well-aware
    They robbed the manager and shot a customer last year
    He figured he'd get on these niggas' good sides
    Free chicken every time Anthony posted in line
    Two extra biscuits Anthony liked him
    And then let him slide; they didn't kill him
    In fact it look like they're the last to survive
    Pay attention that one decision changed both of they lives
    One curse at a time

    Reverse the manifest and good karma and I'll tell you why
    You take two strangers and put 'em in random predicaments; give 'em a soul
    So they can make their own choices and live with it
    Twenty years later them same strangers you make 'em meet again
    Inside recording studios where they reapin' their benefits
    Then you start remindin' them about that chicken incident
    Whoever thought the greatest rapper would be from coincidence?
    Because if Anthony killed Ducky
    Top Dawg could be servin' life
    While I grew up without a father and die in a gunfight
    So I was takin' a walk the other day
