Look Over Your Shoulder

Album: Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God (2020)
  • Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Yeah, I know
    It's been a minute
    Don't you know
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Whenever you need me
    Just look over your shoulders!
    Whenever you need me
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Yeah, you need me (ooh)

    I wrote my first bars in the car with Stacy
    How bizarre, my battle scars at large would lace me
    Big marbles, nigga
    I lead this new generation, boy
    Don't argue with us
    Marvelous beat selectors, authors and novel spitters
    And it's all for the literature
    And it's all for the hideous
    The nastiest flows, the chlamydia, uh
    I ain't afraid to say I need you, ah yeah (hip-hop, hip-hop, hip-hop)
    I promise I'd never leave you, ah yeah
    My life is like twelve open mics of hopeless notes
    I write for sure, my folks unite
    Soon as the flow get nice
    The poltergeist that scare emcees
    My prototype for every
    My share of D's and R.I.P
    She know my type of style is like my everything
    Apparently, my appetite stay famished
    Bite no hand that feed
    The culture vulture die and bleed
    My focus hold these thoughts and dreams
    Control this pen (look over your shoulder)
    Boldest lines in rhymes and things
    Devote my time and mind it seems
    Supposed to shine, remind I'm king
    Provoke the blind and bomb the fiends
    The pro's the con's, the diamond rings
    The forward time, but I'ma bring
    The soul divine and cross between
    What's your's and mine's, the gold, the green
    The roads that show just what it mean
    That grabbed Shakur and by the wing
    And fly before my vocal scream
    For hip-hop, look at my Ziploc bag full of goodies
    You Chris Rock
    Hit the pookie and pit stops
    Since tube socks, baby, you a hell of a drug
    Just look over your shoulders
    When they fuck you over
    It's love, I know ya

    Don't you know, baby?
    Don't you know, baby?
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Whenever you need me
    Just look over your shoulders!
    Whenever you need me
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Yeah yeah, you need me (ooh!)

    Shhh, look over your shoulder, get me?
    'Cause I done bodied the game to the point
    Niggas scared to rap with me
    Get burned until they anointed me
    One of the kings of black history
    And yes, I see the game is a little different
    Niggas lack simply
    And bars and I spit 'em like darts
    'Til they puncture your kidney
    You trash and it don't matter how much you gon' try to convince me
    And you gon' make my gun cock until your hole night away
    Yeah, ohh
    I'm the Buddha, the Ali Baba, the believerer maker
    So pristine, the dice roll from under my sleeve when I shake 'em
    So rude, I'm so ice cold but I'm what you need to just wake 'em
    While 'em crowns and medals on the wall waitin' for me to just take 'em
    When I arrive, my theme music, gotta pound to it
    And when I leave, even my shadow got a sound to it
    'Cause I'm the god, the harder, the martyr, the father
    I spit the saliva, that's leaking the lava
    Completin' the saga while meetin' and greetin'
    And beating you niggas completed-ly
    Conquer, extremely bark on a nigga
    You see me, you deeply carve up a nigga, believe me
    Graffiti your arm up, you heebee, you jeebee
    But, Kenny, you brought up (you give me pity)
    Now give me the startup
    You treat me, you greet me, you meet me with arms up
    So sweet when I spit
    Heaven's deep, it was deep
    I was sleep, now the god's up, hmm
    Upholding the fundamentals
    While most of you boast the rental
    Focus on what's most essential
    Spit bars to provoke your mental
    Do I have your entendimiento?
    While I clap these raps like thunders
    Look over your shoulder boy and wonder

    (Ooh!)
    Don't you know, baby? (ooh, woah)
    Don't you know, baby? (Mh, mm, yeah)
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Whenever you need me (when you need me)
    Just look over your shoulders!
    Whenever you need me (whenever you need me)
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Yeah yeah, you need me (ooh!)

    Don't you know, baby?
    Don't you know, baby?
    Just look over your shoulders, honey!
    Whenever you need me

    That's right!
    He got catalogue, you understand?
    This is the motherfucking human iPod out this motherfucker, okay
    He can go all day Writer/s: Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, Trevor Smith, Michael Jackson
