  • How I keep from going under?
    It's like a jungle outside
    Sometimes I wonder
    How I keep from going under

    We scream, "Black Lives Matter,"
    But we still toting ladders
    Watching our own brothers trying to get at us
    Dreams get shattered when a scene full of crackers
    And they charge you with some shit you ain't do
    You like what happen
    We go get lawyers to say shit, we don't know how to talk
    They told us to hate each other before we learn how to walk
    Momma taught you how to fight, fight,
    Before she taught you how to write, write
    And daddy locked down in the cell, can't kiss you night, night
    Ma, she's under the bed every night, feel like it's fright night
    Coke fumes in the air, mama holding on that pipe tight
    And you catching contact, but never mind that
    In a world where Black is wrong and white right
    It's like a combat, we go to war for our freedom, they say we equal
    I used to wanna play like Randall and be an Eagle
    I used to play the quarterback, my dog would go receiver
    That was 'til ball got flat by a dope needle on the pavement
    It's amazing, this environment we was raised in
    On them papers, one mistake and getting caged in
    You gotta feel me, feel like the system trying to kill me
    Got arrested and the charges F1 for popping wheelies, stay woke

    It was designed for us to fail
    Still prevail through the hell
    Though it was designed for us to lose
    To make it through nothing's impossible
    Believe it we're still undefeated

    Picture me ten years younger with some tats on my face
    Taking a bunch of Xannys with the strap on my waist
    Pointing at the camera like mama ain't teach me manners
    Moving a little rock like I'm heading to Alabama, no, wait
    I can't judge them, I'm just trying to understand them
    Cause I used to pop Percs, pouring purple in my Phantom
    Had me swerving in my Phantom like I'm running from my dreams
    I was heading for the slammer,
    I was planting all the seed for them to bury me
    I had my whole family mad at me
    Feel deep in love with the game and it married me
    Judge said, "I'll give you a chance, just don't embarrass me"
    Motivating these little niggas is like a charity
    Community service even though they knew we was working
    They did this to me on purpose, 'cause I ain't moving too perfect
    I stay away from them clowns, watch how I move through the surface
    Cause they be weighing you down,
    Even some of them dudes in your circle

    It was designed for us to fail
    Still prevail through the hell
    Though it was designed for us to lose
    Nothing, nothing, nothing's impossible
    Believe it, we're still undefeated

    How can I pledge allegiance to the flag
    When they killing all our sons all our dads?
    I come from a place
    When you kill your own brother you can brag
    Like he got bodies, but that's a fad, no, that's a fact
    I'm screaming out at your corner, nigga, that's a trap
    Screaming out, that's your homie, nigga, that's a rack
    Catch a case with him, bet he crack
    Odds against you and they double stack stay woke
    Bought my mama a new crib, that's some gangster shit
    Niece and nephews walking around wearing minks and shit
    Keep the hood motivated, this the thanks I get
    Try to Ja Rule the kid on some Wanksta shit
    But that's impossible 'cause I'm unstoppable
    The label can't drop me, nigga, I'm too valuable
    You thought I would lose but I won and that bothered you
    Still move around in Philly just like the mobsters do
    When I talked to Em and Hov, they said, "I'm proud of you
    You stood tall when everyone doubted you"
    My reply is, "I do what I gotta do
    And I need that verse before you retire too"
    Jumping all the obstacles, I'm way too wavy
    Said I would lose but you way too crazy
    Pick and choose either fame or the money
    Fame will make you crazy
    And the money will make them bad bitches say,
    "Thank you, baby"
    You're welcome
