  • kendrick lamar'ın to pimp a butterfly albümünün açılış şarkısı. altyapısı ve george clinton düeti ile popülerliğini uzun zaman önce yitirmiş g-funk'a selam çakmış, artık öldü denilen 90ların sonu 2000lerin başında fırtına gibi esmiş west coast hip-hop'ın mainstream ile değil özüne dönerek tekrar ayağa kalkabileceği mesajını vermiştir.

    dinler dinlemez aklıma çok sevdiğim tha eastsidaz'a ait how you livin parçası geldi. doğru dokunuşlarla günümüzde hala bu sound'un karşılığının olduğunu kanıtlaması açısından wesley's theory parçasını çok önemli buluyorum. nasıl mutluyum anlatamam.

    wes wes y'all!
  • sozlerini de yazalim, herseyi olsun sozlukte bu sarkinin.

    [sample: boris gardiner]
    every nigger is a star, every nigger is a star
    every nigger is a star, every nigger is a star
    every nigger is a star
    who will deny that you and i and every nigger is a star?

    [intro: george clinton]
    hit me!
    when the four corners of this cocoon collide
    you’ll slip through the cracks hoping that you’ll survive
    gather your wind, take a deep look inside
    are you really who they idolize?
    to pimp a butterfly

    [hook: kendrick lamar]
    at first, i did love you
    but now i just wanna fuck
    late night thinkin' of you
    until i got my nut
    tossed and turned, lesson learned
    you was my first girlfriend
    bridges burned, all across the board
    destroyed, but what for?

    [verse 1: kendrick lamar]
    when i get signed, homie i'mma act a fool
    hit the dance floor, strobe lights in the room
    snatch your little secretary bitch for the homies
    blue eyed devil with a fat ass smoking
    i'mma buy a brand new caddy on fours
    trunk the hood up, two times, deuce four
    platinum on everything, platinum on wedding ring
    married to the game, made a bad bitch yours
    when i get signed homie i'mma buy a strap
    straight from the cia, said it on my life
    take a few m-16s to the hood
    pass 'em all out on the block, what's good?
    i'mma put the compton swap meet by the white house
    republican, run up, get socked out
    hit the pres with a cuban link on my neck
    uneducated but i got a million-dollar cheque, like that

    we should never gave, we should never gave
    niggas money, go back home, money go back home

    [break: dr. dre]
    yo what's up? it's dre
    remember the first time you came out to the house?
    you said you wanted a spot like mine
    but remember, anybody can get it
    the hard part is keeping it, motherfucker

    [verse 2: kendrick lamar]
    what you want you? a house or a car?
    forty acres and a mule, a piano, a guitar?
    anything, see, my name is uncle sam, i'm your dog
    motherfucker you can live at the mall
    i know your kind (that's why i'm kind)
    don't have receipts (oh man, that's fine)
    pay me later, wear those gators
    cliche and say, fuck your haters
    i can see the borrow in you
    i can see the dollar in you
    little white lies, but it's no white-collar in you
    but it's whatever though because i'm still followin' you
    because you make me live forever baby, count it all together baby
    then hit the register and make me feel better baby
    your horoscope is a gemini, two sides
    so you better cop everything two times
    two coupes, two chains, two c-notes
    too much ain't enough both we know
    christmas, tell 'em what's on your wish list
    get it all, you deserve it kendrick
    and when you get the white house, do you
    but remember, you ain't pass economics in school
    and everything you buy, taxes will deny
    i'll wesley snipe your ass before thirty-five

    [bridge: george clinton]
    lookin' down is quite a drop (it's quite a drop, drop)
    lookin' good when you're on top (when you're on top you got it)
    you got a medal for us, leavin' miracles metaphysically in a state of euphoria
    look both ways before you cross my mind
