[Verse 1: Nipsey Hussle]
Look, my n***a this is dedication, this is anti-hesitation
This a real n***a celebration
This a Dime Blocc declaration
59th and 5th Ave, granny house with vanilla wafers
This the remedy, the separation
2Pac of my generation, blue pill in the f**kin' Matrix
Red rose in the gray pavement
Young black n***a trapped and he can't change it
Know he a genius, he just can't claim it
'Cause they left him no platforms to explain it
He frustrated so he get faded
But deep down inside he know you can't fade him
How long should I stay dedicated?
How long 'til opportunity meet preparation?
I need some real n***a reparations
'Fore I run up in your bank just for recreation
[Chorus: Nipsey Hussle]
Dedication, hard work plus patience
The sum of all my sacrifice, I'm done waitin'
I'm done waitin', told you that I wasn't playin'
Now you hear what I been sayin'
It's dedication, look
