"KING KENDRICK LAMAR" pt 2
" Cause when the whole world see you as Pac reincarnated, Enough pressure to make you just open the Book of David, And pray to God that ya make it or live your life in the matrix, Cause falling off is a sickness, I heard that it's quite contagious, I need to separate myself to stand out, I need a better way to take your fans now, I need to kill you mother**s dead, Three hollow tips aimed at your head, I'll be damned if the chopper jam now" - Kendrick Lamar (The Heart Pt.3)
