If Bloods And Crips All Got Along Lyrics

[Refrain: Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q]
If Pirus and Crips all got along
They'd probably gun me down by the end of this song
Seem like the whole city go against me
Every time I'm in the street, I hear—
Yawk! Yawk! Yawk! Yawk!

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
Man down, where you from, ni^^a?
f^^k who you know—where you from, my ni^^a?
Where your grandma stay, huh, my ni^^a?
This m.A.A.d city I run, my ni^^a

[Verse: Kendrick Lamar]
Brace yourself, I'll take you on a trip down memory lane
This is not a rap on how I'm slingin' crack or move cocaine
This is cul-de-sac and plenty Cognac and major pain
Not the drill sergeant, but the stress that weighin' on your brain
It wa^^ me, L Boog, and Yan Yan, YG Lucky ride down Rosecrans
It got ugly, wavin' yo' hand out the window – check yourself!
Uh, Warriors and Conans, hope euphoria can slow dance
With society, the driver seat the first one to get killed
Seen a light-skinned ni^^a with his brains blown out
At the same burger stand where *beep* hang out
Now this is not a tape recorder sayin' that he did it
But ever since that day, I wa^^ lookin' at him different
That wa^^ back when I wa^^ nine, Joey packed the nine
Pakistan on every porch is fine, we adapt to crime
Pack a van with four guns at a time
With the sliding door, f^^k is up?
f^^k you shootin' for if you ain't walkin' up, you f^^kin' punk?
Pickin' up the f^^kin' pump, pickin' off you su^^ers
Suck a d^^k or die or su^^er punch
A wall of bullets comin' from AK's, AR's, "Ayy, y'all—duck!"
That's what Momma said when we wa^^ eatin' that free lunch
Aw man, goddamn, all hell broke loose
You killed my cousin back in '94, f^^k yo' truce!
Now crawl your head in that noose
You wind up dead on the news
Ain't no peace treaty, just piecin' BGs up to pre-approve
Bodies on top of bodies, IVs on top of IVs
Obviously the coroner between the sheets like the Isleys
When you hop on that trolley, make sure your color's correct
Make sure you're corporate or they'll be callin' your mother collect
They say the governor collect all of our taxes, except
When we in traffic and tragic happens, that s^^t ain't no threat
You movin' backwards if you suggest that you sleep with a TEC
Go buy a chopper and have a doctor on speed dial, I guess
​m.A.A.d. city

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
Man down, where you from, ni^^a?
f^^k who you know—where you from, my ni^^a?
Where your grandma stay, huh, my ni^^a?
This m.A.A.d city I run, my ni^^a

[Refrain: Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q]
If Pirus and Crips all got along
They'd probably gun me down by the end of this song
Seem like the whole city go against me
Every time I'm in the street, I hear—
Yawk! Yawk! Yawk!—

[Intro: MC Eiht]
Wake yo' punk-a^^s up!
It ain't nothin' but a Compton thang
G-yeah, real simple and plain
Let me teach you some lessons about the street
(Smoke somethin', ni^^a!)
Hood ('Sup, Cuz?)
It ain't nothin' but a Compton thang
G-yeah, how we do

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Fresh outta school 'cause I wa^^ a high school grad'
Sleepin' in the living room of my momma's pad
Reality struck, I seen the white car cra^^h
Hit the light pole, two ni^^a^^ hopped out on foot and da^^hed
My pops said I needed a job, I thought I believed him
Security guard for a month and ended up leavin'
In fact, I got fired, 'cause I wa^^ inspired by all of my friends
To stage a robbery the third Saturday I clocked in
Projects tore up, gang signs get thrown up
Cocaine laced in marijuana
And they wonder why I rarely smoke now
Imagine if your first blunt had you foamin' at the mouth
I wa^^ straight tweakin', the next weekend we broke even
I made allegiance that made a promise to see you bleedin'
You know the rea^^ons but still'll never know my life
Kendrick a.k.a. "Compton's Human Sacrifice"

[Interlude: MC Eiht]
G-yeah, cocaine, weed
ni^^a^^ been mixin' s^^t since the '80s, loc
Sherm sticks, butt-nakeds
Dip, make a ni^^a flip
Cluck heads all up and down the block and s^^t
One time's crooked and s^^t
Block a ni^^a in
Alondra, Rosecrans, Bullis, it's Compton

[Verse 2: MC Eiht]
I'm still in the hood, loc, yeah that's cool
s^^t, the hood took me under, so I follow the rules
But yeah, that's like me, I grew up in the hood where they bang
And ni^^a^^ that rep colors is doin' the same thang
Pa^^s it to the left so I can smoke on me
A couple drive-bys in the hood lately, s^^t
Couple of IV's with the f^^kin' spray-can
Shots in the crowd, then everybody ran
Crew I'm finna slay, the street life I crave
Shots hit the enemy, hearts turn brave
Mount up, regulators in the whip
Down the boulevard with the pistol grip, yeah
Trip, we in the hood still
So, loc, grab a strap 'cause yeah, it's so real, yeah
Deal with the outcome, a strap in the hand
And a bird and ten grand's where a mothaf^^ka stand

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
If I told you I killed a ni^^a at sixteen, would you believe me?
Perceive me to be innocent Kendrick you seen in the street
With a ba^^ketball and some Now and Laters to eat?
If I mentioned all of my skeletons, would you jump in the seat?
Would you say my intelligence now is great relief?
And it's safe to say that our next generation maybe can sleep
With dreams of bein' a lawyer or doctor
Instead of boy with a chopper that hold the cul-de-sac hostage
Kill 'em all if they gossip
The Children of the Corn, they vandalizin' the option
Of livin' a lie, drown their body with toxins
Constantly drinkin' and drive
Hit the powder, then watch this flame that arrive in his eye
Listen, coward, the concept is aim and then bang it and slide
Out that bi^^h with deposit, a price on his head, the tithes
Probably go to the projects, I
Live inside the belly of the rough, Compton, USA
Made me an Angel on Angel Dust - what?

[Scratches]
​m.A.A.d city
Compton

[Outro]
ni^^a, pa^^s Dot the bottle, damn!
You ain't the one that got f^^ked up
What you holdin' it for?
ni^^a^^ always actin' unsensitive and s^^t
ni^^a, that ain't no word
ni^^a, shut up!
Hey, Dot, you good, my ni^^a?
Don't even trip
Just lay back and drink that
