lyrics

Verse 1
Upgrade after upgrade, I keep it crackin
Bandana with glasses, gloves, skull, what's happenin
Some of y'all don't understand my energy
I told the hood it couldn't have my identity
I'ma be who my folks raised and do it major
My location will not determine my behavior
And that goes both ways homie, I'ma back it up
Politicians, pastors, millionaires- I dap 'em up
(They gone respect me)

Cuz we the same; chasing women and runnin game
Speaking up for the fam; just in a different language
My parents made sure i was too many thangs
Before i was labeled a black male, and i became
Leader of the community, poor folks advocate
Don't play us like we dumb and lazy, ho i ain't havin it!
(I) Be up in the heights, but i grew up in the trap
Nerd from the hood was sent to bridge the gap

Verse 2

Through the sickness, daps, mugs, and one-armed hugs
Hard workers emerge baby, we ain't ALL thugs
Yellow spots on my eyes, family name on my back
Blood pressure be high, eczema on my tats
She rides and wants inside but can't find an opening
Women say I'm so focused that I'm emotionless
I let em get away with saying it's true
God put me here for a reason, it wasn't to cater to you
Keep it a hundo!
They wanna run up on me so I keep a gun close
Reach my hand out when they be in a bad spot
I'm trying to grow a cash crop for the have-nots
And keep 'em out the cemetary
We more than strippers, students, and secretaries
Put a foreign country down on your itinerary
Overseas gives the ghetto respect
Buy a ticket with your refund check!
(I got a hundred on it!!)
