  • (What did the Asian say?)
    A peace of mind
    That's what the Asian said, I need a divine
    Intervention was his religion and now it's a prize
    Him believing in Buddha, me believing in God
    Asked me what am I doing, he said "taking my time"
    Meditation is a must, it don't hurt if you try
    See you thinking too much plus you too full of yourself
    Worried about your career, you ever think of your health?
    (What did the Indian say?)
    A piece of land
    That's what the Indian said, I needed demand
    Telling me longevity is in the dirt, should buy some property first
    Profit a better dollar with generational perks
    Equity at his best, really, you should invest
    These tangible things expire, don't you expect
    Income with so much outcome and yes
    Look at my heritage, we blessed
    (Now what the black man say?)
    A piece of pussy
    That's what the black man said, I needed to push me
    To the limit, satisfy my hunger
    We do it all for a woman, from hair cut to a wool
    We like to live in the jungle, like to play in the peach
    What you saying to me?
    He said "nigga, come back to reality for a week"
    Pussy is power, fuck on a new bitch every night
    I wouldn't be prouder, you should allow it
    (What the white man say?)
    A piece of mines
    That's what the white man wanted when I rhyme
    Telling me that he selling me just for $10.99
    If I go platinum from rapping, I do the company fine
    What if I compromise? He said it don't even matter
    You make a million or more, you living better than average
    You losing your core following, gaining it all
    Put a price on my talent, I hit the bank and withdraw
    Hit the bank and withdraw, hit the bank and withdraw
    Put myself in the rocket ship and I shot for the stars
    Look at what you accomplished and what he said to the boy
    I'mma make you some promises that you just can't ignore
    Your profession anonymous as an artist
    If I don't target your market
    If you ain't signing your signature when I throw you my wallet
    A lot of rappers are giving their demo all in the toilet
    Your world tour, your masters, mortgage, I need a piece

    I holler "what you do? What you say?
    I shall enjoy the fruits of my labor if I get freed today
    I holler "what you do? What you say?"
    I shall enjoy the fruits of my labor if I get freed today Writer/s: Kendrick Lamar, Mathieu Rakotozafy
