N95 Lyrics

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
Hello, new world, all the boys and girls
I got some true stories to tell
You're back outside, but they still lied
Woah-oh-oh-oh (Yeah)

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Take off the foo-foo
Take off the clout chase
Take off the Wi-Fi
Take off the money phone
Take off the car loan
Take off the flex and the white lies
Take off the weird-as*jewelry
I'ma take ten steps
Then I'm taking off top five
Take off them fabricated streams and them microwave memes
It's a real world outside (Take that sh!t off)
Take off your idols, take off the runway
I take off to Cairo (Take that sh!t off)
Take off to Saint-Tropez, five-day stay
Take a quarter mill', hell, if I know (Take that sh!t off)
Take off the front flag, take off perception
Take off the cop with the eye patch (Take that sh!t off)
Take off the unloyal, take off the unsure
Take off decisions I lack (Take it off)
Take off the fake deep, take off the fake woke
Take off the, "I'm broke, I care" (Take it off)
Take off the gossip
Take off the new logic that if I'm rich
I'm rare (Take it off)
Take off the Chanel, take off the Dolce
Take off the Birkin bag (Take it off)
Take all that designer bullsh!t off
And what do you have?

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
B!tch, huh, huh, ugh
You ugly as f**k (You outta pocket)
Huh, two ATMs (Hah, hah, hah, hah)
You stepping or what?
(You outta pocket, huh)
Who you think they talk about?
Talk about us
(You outta pocket—shoot, shoot, shoot)
Who you think they copy off?
(Brrt, brrt, brrt, brrt)
Copy off us
(Get back in pocket)

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
The world in a panic
The women is stranded, the men on a run
The prophets abandoned, the law take advantage
The market is crashing, the industry wants
N!ggas and b!tches to sleep in a box
While they making a mockery following us
This ain't Monopoly, watching for love
This ain't monogamy, y'all getting f**ked
Jumping on what the hell is that?
I gotta relax when I feel (Huh, facts)
All my descendants, they come in my sleep
And say I am too real (Huh, facts)
I'm done with the sensitive, taking it personal
Done with the black and the white
The wrong and the right
You hoping for change and clericals
I know the feelings that came with burial's cries

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
B!tch, huh, huh, ugh
You ugly as f**k (You outta pocket)
Huh, two ATMs (Hah, hah, hah, hah)
You stepping or what? (You outta pocket, huh)
Who you think they talk about?
Talk about us (You outta pocket—shoot, shoot, shoot)
Who you think they copy off? (Brrt, brrt, brrt, brrt)
Copy off us

[Bridge: Kendrick Lamar]
Serving up a look, dancing in a drought
Hello to the big stepper, never losing count
Venting in the safe house
Venting in the sa—

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar & Baby Keem]
Can I vent all my truth?
I got nothing to lose, I got problems and pools
I can swim on my faith
Cameras moving whenever I'm moving
The family suing whatever I make
Murder is stacking, the president acting
The government taxing my funds in the bank
Homies attracting the feds when I'm bracking
Look at my reaction, my pupils on skates (Hold up, hold up)
Let's think about this for a second (Let's go)
Tell me what you would do for aesthetic (Let's go)
Would you sell your soul on credit? (Let's go)
Would you sell your bro for leverage? (Let's go)
Where the hypocrites at?
What community feel they the only ones relevant? (Let's go)
Where the hypocrites at?
What community feel they the only ones relevant? (Let's go)

[Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
Huh, huh, ugh
You outta pocket, yeah, you outta pocket (This sh!t hard)
You entertain the mediocre, need to stop it (This sh!t hard)
You entertaining old friends when they toxic (This sh!t hard)
What your life like? Bullsh!t and gossip (This sh!t hard)
What the f**k is cancel culture, dawg?
Say what I want about you n!ggas, I'm like Oprah, dawg
I treat you crackers like I'm Jigga, watch, I own it all
Oh, you worried 'bout a critic? That ain't protocol (B!tch)
