JAG

"How It Feels to Be Black"

[Verse 1: JAG]
When your people see me, man, they think that I ball
Probably because I'm black with tattoos and I’m tall
They think that I'm simple-minded, n*gga stay at the mall
They thinkin' that we don’t work and we just work for that call
You know, that hook-up
It's like they set us back, man, every time that I look up
They want us all dumb, they afraid if we pick a book up
Even more afraid if we get up out of that car
That they told us get up out of, if we listen, it's like they shook up
New cat just tryna hustle to get my crew stacked
Apply for all these jobs and they wonder why n*ggas move crack
Move back, white people sayin' that he like tooth back
Paid, guess they ain't see us comin', n*ggas is too black

[Chorus: JAG]
They say n*ggas fire but they want us up in flames
Told us go for gold but they don't want us up in chains
They say we look good when we ballin', and I’m flattered
They say black lives matter, how it matter, nothin’ change?
Man, this lifestyle is wack, yeah, uh
This how it feel to be black, uh
I swear this lifestyle is wack, yeah
This how it feel to be black

[Verse 2: REASON]
So, been sittin' first class, stewardess tell me I don’t belong there
Like I made it to the top but I took the wrong stairs
Now I'm getting long stares every time I walk into that Whole Foods
But I'm used to it, this sh*t old news
These people wishin' we could go back to them old rules
You know that MAGA mentality, Make America Great Again
It’s never been great for I
Every cop case, they lie
We just tryna stay alive
I been stayin' on my sh*t
Segregate from each other but never own sh*t
We fight to keep every bit of that pride, then lose ours
Make all that money livin' in hoods then move out it
They done killed all of our kids, but who's countin'?
sh*t, I been countin' down the days when I can make these people have to pay for it
Not with violence, but take mine and make a way for it
Spend them dollars for my people, build estates for 'em
Take this pen and state every single place
We done failed, took some L's, my homie tried to prevail
Got out the whip with a wallet, bullets shoot through his back
That's exactly how it feel to be black, REASON

[Chorus: JAG]
They say n*ggas fire but they want us up in flames
Told us go for gold but they don't want us up in chains
They say we look good when we ballin', and I'm flattered
They say black lives matter, how it matter, nothin' change?
Man, this lifestyle is wack, yeah, uh
This how it feel to be black, uh
I swear this lifestyle is wack, yeah
This how it feel to be black

[Verse 3: JAG]
I was proud to be black, oh yeah, proud to be black
But now it seems we gettin' killed for it, yeah
I thought freedom was free
But still I feel like the man been tryna cut us up a deal for it, facts
Yeah, Chubby the real know it, the real poet, I'ma say my piece
f*ck the cops, I been thinkin' 'bout how I'ma pay my lease
And it's crazy when we run into the boys, I don't get it
'Cause the looks is all sour but my mama say I'm sweet, for real
sh*t is not right, swear this not life
I can't buy what they sellin', I gotta shop right
I often think about passin' through on the stop lights
Heart beatin' fast as soon as I see the cop lights
A businessman, I'll kill to be that
I'm that cold, a black hole, that's how it feel to be black, yeah
Uh, that's how it feel to be black
I'm that cold, a black hole, that's how it feel to be black, yeah
