DNA Lyrics

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
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 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 building 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 outside 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
(I’m a soldier's DNA)
Born inside the beast
My expertise checked out in second grade
When I was 9, on cell, motel
We didn’t have nowhere to stay
At 29, I've done so well
Hit cartwheel in my estate
And I'm gone shine like
I’m supposed to, antisocial extrovert
And excellent mean the extra work
And absentness what the fuck you heard
And pessimists never struck my nerve
And Nazareth gonna plead his case
The reason my power's here on earth
Salute the truth, when the prophet say

[Bridge: Kendrick Lamar]
I-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-I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
I live a better life, I'm rolling several dice
Fuck your life
I-I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
I live a be-, fuck your life
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
This is my heritage, all I'm inheriting
Money and power, the mecca of marriages

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Tell me something
You mothafuckas can't tell me nothing
I'd rather die than to listen to you
My DNA not for imitation
Your DNA an abomination
This how it is when you in the Matrix
Dodging bullets, reaping what you sow
And stacking up the footage, living on the go
And sleeping in a villa
Sipping from a Grammy, walking in the building
Diamond in the ceiling, marble on the floors
Beach inside the window, peeking out the window
Baby in the pool, godfather goals
Only Lord knows I've been going hammer
Dodging paparazzi, freaking through the cameras
Eat at Four Daughters, Brock wearing sandals
Yoga on a Monday, stretching to Nirvana
Watching all the snakes, curving 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 9
Look up in the sky, 10 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
