Kendrick Lamar – DNA.

These are the times, level number 9
Tell me somethin’
I transform like this, perform like this
Eat at Four Daughters, Brock wearin’ sandals
This how it is when you’re in the Matrix
Beach inside the window, peekin’ out the window
This is why I say that hip hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years
Look up in the sky, 10 is on the way
I was born like this, since one like this
I’d rather die than to listen to you
I got hustle though, ambition, flow, inside my DNA
I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
You ain’t shit without a ticket on your plate
Gimme some ganja
You ain’t rich enough to hit the lot and skate
I got dark, I got evil, that rot inside my DNA
My DNA not for imitation
I don’t contemplate, I meditate, then off your fucking head
Dodgin’ bullets, reapin’ what you sow
Gimme some ganja, gimme some ganja
You ain’t shit without a body on your belt
Scholars, fathers dead with kids
And pessimists never struck my nerve
Dodgin’ paparazzi, freakin’ through the cameras
You mothafuckas can’t tell me nothin’
Gimme some ganja, gimme some ganja
I got off, I got troublesome, heart inside my DNA
And absentness what the fuck you heard
You ain’t sick enough to pull it on yourself
[Verse 1]
I live a better life, I’m rollin’ several dice, fuck your life
Real nigga in my DNA
Bitch, your hormones prolly switch inside your DNA
Immaculate conception
My expertise checked out in second grade
Problem is, all that sucker shit inside your DNA
And I’m gon’ shine like I’m supposed to
I just win again, then win again like Wimbledon, I serve

Loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
Salute the truth, when the prophet say
Peace to the world, let it rotate
Phone never on, I don’t conversate
Only Lord knows, I’ve been goin’ hammer
Born inside the beast
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, soldier’s DNA
Was Yeshua’s new weapon
DNA
This that put-the-kids-to-bed
I live a better, fuck your life
This is my heritage, all I’m inheritin’
Realness, I just kill shit ’cause it’s in my DNA
Yeah, that’s him again, the sound that engine in is like a bird
Sex, money, murder—our DNA
Ain’t no ho inside my DNA
[Outro]
Drippin’ gold inside my DNA
And I wish I was fed forgiveness
Cocaine quarter piece, got war and peace inside my DNA
[Bridge]

And sleepin’ in a villa
And stackin’ up the footage, livin’ on the go
Baby in the pool, godfather goals
Motherfucker, I got winners on the way
I got millions, I got riches buildin’ in my DNA
This is Paula’s oldest son
This that I got, I got, I got, I got
DNA
When I was 9, on-sale motel, we didn’t have nowhere to stay
DNA
I got, I got, I got, I got
Sippin’ from a Grammy and walkin’ in the buildin’
Antisocial, extrovert
And that’s a riff, gonna plead this case
I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
Real nigga in my DNA
I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
I don’t compromise, I just penetrate
Tell me when destruction gonna be my fate
Diamond in the ceilin’, marble on the floors
Ain’t no ho inside my DNA
Sentence on the way, killings on the way
And excellent mean the extra work
Sex, money, murder—these are the breaks
See, my pedigree most definitely don’t tolerate the front
Daddy prolly snitched, heritage inside your DNA
You see fireworks and Corvette tire skrrt the boulevard
Watchin’ all the snakes, curvin’ all the fakes
Burners, boosters, burglars, ballers, dead, redemption
I know murder, conviction
See, you’s a, you’s a, you’s a—
I know how you work, I know just who you are

Yoga on a Monday, stretchin’ to Nirvana
Money and power, the mecca of marriages
Gonna be your fate, gonna be our faith
At 29, I’ve done so well, hit cartwheel in my estate
Your DNA an abomination
[Verse 2]
Shit I’ve been through prolly offend you
The reason my power’s here on earth
Backbone don’t exist, born outside a jellyfish, I gauge
I got power, poison, pain and joy inside my DNA
Power shows in my DNA
