Lyrics:
Rockabye baby
Lemme tell you something, girl, this life has been crazy
Finding time to breathe become more difficult lately
I’m in Malibu, like Anderson, praying these waves take me
The industry still shady
You killin for bills daily
I’m killer for Bill’s ratings
The people is still waiting
For the album I’m still making
I might write this verse backwards
Reverse it to sound blacker
Than berries that Kendrick
Spoke of America still backwards

Uh
It’s all gravity
Can’t believe the shit I see
Counting up the casualties, like rest in peace in the streets
Thoughts and prayers won’t catch a bullet Uh uh
Poser politicians post condolences publicly but they luh-uv
Campaign donations NRA be dropping in the bank
Then these same politicians block any policy change
Open up your eyes this ain’t no fucking game
The kids who pull these triggers ain’t the only ones to blame
America the brave, America the great
America a country colonized and built by slaves
Profits is the topic
The root of all evil in your pocket
The truth is all people wanna cop it

I been far from home I been far from home
I been on the road I been ‘round the globe
I been far from home I been far from home
I been on the road I been I been

Back it up, real quick 2017 shit
Started working on a record, fulfilling my dreams shit
Red Rocks, 10,000 people filled the seats quick
Next time you’ll see my name on the ticket, I believe this
I picked apart the problem try to find the place to play my part
I pray the music that I make find a place up inside your heart
I been waiting patiently straighten my aim to hit the mark
I lit the spark so the fires start
Now we chasing big dreams
Kid warrior on the big screen
I been speaking body language follow where her hips lean
Go wherever she go
Falling in love between shows
Hopping off the bird I’m drinking cups of that miso
Fuck a rappers ego
Turquoise by the kilo

No creo que están listos
Su cuerpo siguiendo el ritmo
Todo es por mi gente
Nobody question intentions I’m doing this for my people
Nací como residente
De dos mundos diferentes
Extraño latinoamérica, mi gente de piel morena todavía se siente

I been far from home I been far from home
I been on the road I been ‘round the globe
I been far from home I been far from home
I been on the road I been ‘round the globe

Yes, I see the whole picture
See the whole world what it is and what it’s missing
And what it’s missing
A leader with a flow that got the vision
Someone giving the youth some hope show them just how to get it
I grab the mic whether I speak or flow the people listen
These women skin is cinnamon my writtens got them dripping
Whole crew wilin out, touring in a minivan
Catch me in your city or catch me up on your Instagram
Never dropped a project and I’m on tour
Pretty bitties is litty they telling me they want more
Encore
Young boy savage, I do my thing
Play my cards right and I’ll soon be king
4 to 21, I’ll take that risk
Lead a global movement and still make hits
Catch me in streets or catch me at my show
Rippin up the stage my flow colder than 10 below
Let the music speak for itself
Hold onto your seats I’ll steady be bringing heat till break free hits the shelf
