Kids Song Review

August 12, 2019

[Verse 1]

Ayy, uh

I'm puttin' numbers on the board and blowin' more digits

I haven't started, man, these are just the before pictures

Shout out my parents, my mother gave birth to four winners

All of the players in the game, it's always cold benches

Been in the studio, I forgot how to sleep

Not tryna make an album they forget 'bout in a week

They said the fruit never gon' fall far from the tree

I used to be the kid, now the kids wanna be me

Trippin' 'bout my future, like way before there was cameras

Hella plans on my calendar, 'fore I went all professional

Less souls to trust, man, these people makin' me cynical

More copycats and less people soundin' original

Same destination, we just took different routes

Fuck bein' one the greatest, I'm tryna be the greatest one

I ain't sayin' I ain't grateful for everything I've become

But the throne looks more comfortable than this chair I'm sittin' on

My name is Brian, cold bars is what I'm known for

If my vision ain't scarin' me, then I don't go for it

'Member my first days here when it was all foreign

Now I'm on TV with James Corden, that shit was crazy

Just got a place with a backyard, I feel amazing

Nothin' can get between me and the dreams I'm chasin'

Ain't got the time for partyin', no more gettin' wasted

'Less you got the 1942, man, then get the chaser

You hatin' on me, but you know I got it

You big in your city, I'm the king of a continent

These rappers tryna make the trendin' topic

While the state of music goin' south

But I don't even want to talk about it

Let's talk about it, nah, let's talk about it

Before all these folks decide it's cool to give a fuck about it

Everyone's tryna make hits, I'm just tryna make music

You know, the kind that makes you feel when you listen to it?

I'm the youngest child, I don't need more attention

You writin' some bullshit, I write the lyrics meant for the captions

I'm makin' songs that'll probably outlive us for generations

Started off as the sailor, look at me, now I'm the captain

I won't lie, this shit is fun

Tell these Asian kids they could do what they want

Might steal the mic at the GRAMMYs just to say we won

That everyone can make it, don't matter where you from



Can't forget about the day that Sean called me

Talkin' 'bout a vision called 88 that he's dreamin'

Man, I love him like a brother, if we fall, we gon' recover

Just a man with a vision who mastered in causin' trouble (You can't see)

Man, I can't see the finish line

Fall back, fall back, I ain't fuckin' 'round this time (Anymore)

Did God know he created a legend in '99? (Anymore)

Fuck pretendin' on a track, man, I mean every single line


[Verse 2]

Touched down, never holdin' back

Shinin' like some bustdown, sailin' 'round without a map

Been the underdog, now it's time to let me quarterback

Killin' shit in uncharted territories, man, this shit get hella gory

Whole country of people proud, so I'm never worried

Glad you're sittin' through the credits, man, this is my story

The type of shit that make me cry when I record it

This the type of shit that still gon' make me proud even when I'm 40

R.I.P. Nipsey, R.I.P. Mac

These inspirations always gon' motivate me to rap

Let's celebrate their lives and the people that they impact

The marathon continues, ain't no way we lookin' back

Amazon Prime flow, you know I'll always deliver

We crossed oceans for a chance just to feel somethin' better

Generations to sacrifice, that we'll always remember

It's that circle of life shit, they hold me up like I'm Simba

They told me I ain't welcome, I'm here to stay, and my visa says so

Just wait and see whose songs they gon' blast up in they headphones

Come back like every couple years to destroy like tornadoes

Victorious tropical flow comin' straight from Indo'

These plants only grow to just get cut and disposed

Their spotlight is dimmin', my future's so bright that it glows

You want the blueprint for impossible, I'll let it show

Remember when Pac said, "The concrete grows a rose"
