Kendrick Lamar, “HiiiPoWeR” (Lyrics)

13 Apr

Ill rhymes are what Kendrick Lamar’s exhaling at this point in time, and he’s getting a little bit of his own beautiful black fantasy off his chest on this one. Kendrick’s next, and J. Cole on the boards with that flute? Forget it.

Purchase the “HiiiPoWeR” MP3 at iTunes. Get the “HiiiPoWeR” lyrics after the jump.

Lyrics

Kendrick Lamar

Everybody put three fingers in the air!

The sky is fallin’, the wind is callin’
Stand for somethin’ or die in the mornin’
Section 80, HiiiPoWeR

Visions of Martin Luther starin’ at me
Malcolm X put a hex on my future, someone catch me
I’m fallin’ victim to a revolutionary song, the Serengeti’s clone
Back to put you backstabbers back on your spinal bone
You slid your diss when I slid you my disc
You wanted to diss, but jumped on my dick
Grown men never should bite they tongue
Unless you eatin’ pussy that smell like it’s a stale plum
I got my finger on the mothafuckin’ pistol
Aimin’ it at a pig, Charlotte’s web is gonna miss you
My issue isn’t televised, and you ain’t gotta tell the wise
How to stay on beat, because our life’s an instrumental
This is physical and mental, I won’t sugarcoat it
You’ll die from diabetes if these other niggas wrote it
And everything on TV just a figment of imagination
I don’t want a plastic nation, dread that like a Haitian
While you motherfuckers waitin’? I’ll be off the slave ship
Buildin’ pyramids, writin’ my own hieroglyphs

Just call this shit high power (Power)
Nigga, nothin’ less than high power (Power)
Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches
I mean this shit is
Huey Newton goin’ stupid, you can’t resist his
High power (Power)
Throw your hands up for high power (Power)

Visions of Martin Luther starin’ at me
If I see it how he seen it, that would make my parents happy
Sorry, mama, I can’t turn the other cheek
They wanna knock me off the edge like a fuckin’ widows peak, uh
And she always told me “Pray for the weak,” uh
Them demons got me, I ain’t prayed in some weeks, uh
“Dear Lord, come save me, the Devil’s workin’ hard
He prob’ly clockin’ double shifts on all of his jobs”
Frightenin’, so fuckin’ frightenin’
Enough to drive a man insane, I need a license to kill
I’m standin’ on a field full of land mines
Doin’ the moonwalk, hopin’ I blow up in time
‘Cause 2012 might not be a fuckin’ legend
Tryna be a fuckin’ legend, the man of mankind
Who said a black man in the Illuminati?
Last time I checked, that was the biggest racist party
So get up off that slave ship
Build your own pyramids, write your own hieroglyphs

Just call this shit high power (Power)
Nigga, nothin’ less than high power (Power)
Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches
I mean this shit is
Bobby Seale makin’ mills, you can’t resist his
High power (Power)
Throw your hands up for high power (Power)

Alori Joh

Every day, we fight the system
Just to make our way
We been down for too long, but that’s all right
We was built to be strong, ’cause it’s our life
Na-na-na-now

Every day, we fight the system
(We fight the system, we fight the system)
(Never liked the system)
We been down for too long, but that’s all right
Na-na-now

Who said a black man in the Illuminati?
Last time I checked, that was the biggest racist party
Last time I checked, we was racin’ with Marcus Garvey
On the freeway to Africa, ’til I wrecked my Audi
And I want everybody to view my autopsy
So you can see exactly where the government has shot me
No conspiracy, my fate is inevitable
They play musical chairs once I’m on that pedestal
Frightenin’, so fuckin’ frightenin’
Enough to drive a man insane, a woman insane
The reason Lauryn Hill don’t sang, or Kurt Cobain
Loaded that clip and then said bang! (The drama it brings!)
(Crazy!) Product of the late ’80s
Tryna stay above water, that’s why we shunned the Navy
Pull your guns and play me, let’s set it off
Cause a riot, throw up Molotovs
Somebody told me those pirates had got lost
‘Cause we been off them slave ships
Got our own pyramids, write our own hieroglyphs

Just call this shit high power (Power)
Yeah, nothin’ less than high power (Power)
Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches
I mean this shit is
Fred Hampton on your campus, you can’t resist his
High power (Power)
Throw your hands up for high power (Power)

Thug life
Thug life (Thug life, thug life…)
