  • I got, I got, I got, I got
    Loyalty, got royalty
    Inside my DNA
    Cocaine quarter piece, got war and peace
    Inside my DNA
    I got power, poison, pain and joy
    Inside my DNA
    I got hustle, though, ambition, flow
    Inside my DNA

    I was born like this, since one like this, immaculate conception
    I transform like this, perform like this, was Yeshua's new weapon
    I don't contemplate, I meditate, then off your fucking head
    This that put-the-kids-to-bed, this that

    I got, I got, I got, I got
    Realness, I just kill shit
    'Cause it's in my DNA
    I got millions, I got riches
    Buildin' in my DNA
    I got dark, I got evil, that rot
    Inside my DNA
    I got off, I got troublesome heart
    Inside my DNA

    I just win again, then win again like Wimbledon, I serve
    Yeah, that's him again, the sound that engine in is like a bird
    You see fireworks and Corvette tire skrrt the boulevard
    I know how you work, I know just who you are
    See, you's a, you's a, you's a bitch

    Your hormones prolly switch
    Inside your DNA
    Problem is, all that sucker shit
    Inside your DNA
    Daddy prolly snitched, heritage
    Inside your DNA
    Backbone don't exist
    Born onside a jellyfish, I gauge

    See, my pedigree most definitely don't tolerate the front
    Shit I've been through prolly offend you
    This is Paula's oldest son
    I know murder, conviction
    Burners, boosters, burglars, ballers, dead, redemption
    Scholars, fathers dead with kids
    And I wish I was fed forgiveness
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, soldier's DNA
    Born inside the beast
    My expertise checked out in second grade
    When I was nine, on cell, motel, we didn't have nowhere to stay
    At twenty-nine, I've done so well, hit cartwheel in my estate
    And I'm gon' shine like I'm supposed to antisocial, extrovert
    And excellent mean the extra work
    And absent-ness what the fuck you heard
    And pessimists never struck my nerve
    And that's a riff, gonna plead this case
    The reason my power's here on earth
    Salute the truth, when the prophet say

    I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
    (This is why I say that Hip-Hop has done more damage)
    (To young African-Americans than racism in recent years)
    I live a better, fuck your life
    (Five, four, three, two, one) this is my heritage, all I'm inheritin'
    Money and power, the makin' of marriages

    Tell me somethin'
    You mothafuckas can't tell me nothin'
    I'd rather die than to listen to you
    My DNA not for imitation
    Your DNA an abomination
    This how it is when you're in the Matrix
    Dodgin' bullets, reapin' what you sow
    And stackin' up the footage, livin' on the go
    And sleepin' in a Villa
    Sippin' from a Grammy and walkin' in the buildin'
    Diamond in the ceilin', marble on the floors
    Beach inside the window, peekin' out the window
    Baby in the pool, Godfather goals, only Lord knows

    I've been goin' hammer, dodgin' paparazzi, freakin' through the cameras
    Eat at Four Daughters, Brock wearin' sandals
    Yoga on a Monday, stretchin' to Nirvana
    Watchin' all the snakes, curvin' all the fakes
    Phone never on, I don't conversate
    I don't compromise, I just penetrate
    Sex, money, murder, these are the breaks
    These are the times, level number nine
    Look up in the sky, ten is on the way
    Sentence on the way, killings on the way
    Motherfucker, I got winners on the way

    You ain't shit without a body on your belt
    You ain't shit without a ticket on your plate
    You ain't sick enough to pull it on yourself
    You ain't rich enough to hit the lot and skate
    Tell me when destruction gonna be my fate
    Gonna be your fate, gonna be our faith
    Peace to the world, let it rotate
    Sex, money, murder, our DNA Writer/s: Howard Benson, Kendrick Lamar, Lenny Zakitek, Lia Johnson, Michael Len Williams, Sidnie Tipton
