Look, fuck rap, I'm a street legend Block love me with a deep reverence I was birthed in a C-section Hella cops and police presence We got opps, so we keep weapons We on y'all block while y'all eat breakfast A lot of shots, we broke street records Watch how you talk, I got reflexes Watching your cheap necklace Then we slide out the east exit But every time we get to fuckin' niggas up, TMZ catch it Y'all still learnin' street lessons From the mastermind, first you master grind Then your team catch it This time is for the money, I don't need credit And I'm the don 'cause the streets said it, look (Fuck rap, I'm a street legend) And I'm the don 'cause the streets said (Block love me with a deep reverence) yeah, whoa And I'm the don 'cause the streets said it
Yeah And I got pressure on me Seven days a week, it's game seven on me Life'll test you out, you live through that, that's testimony Givin' 'em hell but how in the hell I got all these blessings on me? Most of the girls I know addicted to social media All this time they put in, they could've wrote encyclopedias Mama said it only takes one time to fuck up your whole Wikipedia And as your son, I could see the type of light that you see me in After what happened to Nipsey I reached out to Kendrick It wasn't even no real issues there to begin with Lack of communication and wrong information from people Fueled by the ego is like mixing flames with diesel Energy crazy, I realize that it's a two way street What's coming is going if it don't give you more, it drains you Should be a billionaire based on the time off I'm not taking Probably why this shit with me get crazy and we lost a baby And everybody around me think I'm the one But we all just one of ones And I'm walkin' out the crib, they ask me where I'm going I told 'em I'm goin' on another ten year run Niggas is banging over blocks that they don't own, thinking that's home Boy, you think that's where you're from? You don't really know where you're from You don't know how deep your roots is or what your ancestors had done So God bless all the sons and daughters who knew their history So they knew where to take it farther And all the ones that stuck with me like good barbers Lookin' at my life story, God's a good author Never was the loudest in the room, we move like ninjas And if it cost you peace of mind, it might be too expensive So I can give you everything that you want from me for free though Get you one shot in life, you might not be able to reload So advanced, I need all my advances Bro hit me up for cash like we didn't have the same chances My Dad hit me up like, why I don't live in a mansion? I'm tryna focus, but baby girl, keep holding my mind for ransom And that aint how it's supposed to be This man Hov got to a B And his name Shawn too, I almost felt like it was me Damn, I realize all my setbacks were inside of me In high school I learned chemistry, biology But not how to cope with anxiety Or how I could feel like I'm by myself on an island With depression on all sides of me (damn) With a Glock 17 right on the side of me (hold up) Look, I ain't think I had the thought of suicide in me Until life showed me all these different sides of me Too many times I thought the reaper was outside for me And how the fuck is people that never met me that hate me? I wonder if they understand that I meditate daily And feel like my life purpose is to give inspiration Despite the hit songs that there's just no escaping That I take care of my family and beat the odds that were deadly You hate that? That just reflects your lack of succession Bless 'em, if it ain't Nipsey blue, it's Detroit blue This that Detroit 2, I'm bringin' it back to the hood like D boys do, gone
So the collaboration though with Nipsey and who? Aww man, I'd prolly say Payroll or Tee Grizzley Me and Big Sean talked about doing something recently too So, you know all of 'em, I'ma, I'ma tap in with all of Detroit
(Fuck rap, I'm a street legend) (Block love me with a deep reverence)

George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
