birds & the beez lyrics – schoolboy q

“birds & the beez”
(feat. kendrick lamar)

[schoolboy q – verse 1]
straight to the block, to the hood, to a spot
cocaine to a rock, duece duece in a sock
every dollar closer to a drop
every drop is closer to a cop
every cop is closer to a cell
hit the cell your ticket right to h*ll
no job, no bail
no fam, no mail
inst*tution another n*gg* fail
go from p*ssy to a prison tale
f*ck that, i quit while i’m ahead
ship my music off with them instead
turn it up and here the ghetto pledge
live righteous n*gg* like my brother said
king tut, martin luther, malcolm x, but ima shoota’
top ramen, knowledge for the noodle
finally gettin’ praised
yeah kudos
doing bad, still love the need
connect said it’s something up his sleeve
said, i rather bust off them keys
yeah n*gg* birds and the beez

birds and the beez
birds and the beez

[schoolboy q – verse 2]
wanna do a song, but its hard to carry on
and my daughter hungry sitting home
and my girl said she feeling lone
i can’t tell its over in her tone
only time i call is for a loan
she be stressing, so depressing
always worried every time a lil n*gg* gone
stay strong for the future, stick together, yeah shoot ya’
get a couple wipps, yeah kunta
schoolboy but gangsta was his tutors
say money be the root of evil, look around and see what it do to people
veins full of heroin using pcp inject the body with a needle
lord help us, swear to god, dope dealers, get a job
keep it real this sh*t ain’t really cool, being in a cell, you ain’t alive
n*gg*s turn to shark over cheese, love to help the devil do a deed
so i rather bust of them keys, yeah n*gg* birds and the beez

birds and the beez
birds and the beez
birds and the beez

[hook]
tired of the same ol’ sh*t, n*gg*s they faking it
n*gg*s out here living foul
better yet they flagrant, keep these n*gg*s right up out the game
keep these n*gg*s right up out my lane
i just wanna do this f*cking music boy, leave this dope alone and count my change

[kendrick lamar]
q i wanna see you do your thang
entertainment business living lime light
hop on every track and move them trains
show these motherf*ckers that you been tight, then they ever been
its evident that you intelligent but you can’t escape that life
and for you my n*gg* i would sacrifice my self to make it just to see you hold the mic
and hit the stage and rock the set but its hard to change when your from the set
won’t you think about it n*gg*, life or death, like a cracker would like to hang you by the neck
do you wanna see the boys in jet, or you wanna see them run way jets
fly to singapore one way that, tell the pilot we got stacks on deck

swear to god, its hard out here for a young black men to live
if you don’t do it for yourself, then please do it for your kids

my n*gg* won’t you tell mich*lle, i love your daughter
please don’t let her grow up life without a father
look at what you bought her, money couldn’t buy
all she need is love but that sh*t aside
at the same time know they got to eat, know you got to hustle, make ends meet
gotta make time, gotta get a grind, gotta push the line, htc, no a.c
and the block hot, you keep runnin’, cop say freeze
blue pill, red bill, choose now, birds or the beez

birds or the beez
birds or the beez

[hook]
tired of the same ol’ sh*t, n*gg*s they faking it
n*gg*s out here living foul
better yet they flagrant, keep these n*gg*s right up out the game
keep these n*gg*s right up out my lane
i just wanna do this f*cking music boy, leave this dope alone and count my change

count my change
count my change
