B.o.B – Hip Hop Aint Dead (The Future) lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Everyone was saying hip-hop was dead
It wasn't dead
These niggas just wasn't makin no bread
Because the scared to be real so they fakin instead
And when that happens rappin and rappin it's actin instead
But like they say it's just entertainment
But it's a game so all this niggas is playin
Even me
But what happens when the game changes
Your favorite rappers gon have to do some explainin
Somebody turn the channel man this gangsta shit is boring
Nobody believes ya so please record another story
Now I'm not sayin that I'm a save ya
But if no one else keep it real then I'm the answer to ya prayers

[Chorus: x2]
Look into the future tell me what you see
You a fool if you don't know it by now
Pimpin we the future
We the future
And you a fool if you don't know it by now

[Verse 2:]
See kids only believe in what the perceive
And half of what they believe is what they be seein on the T. V.
Hints the term monkey see monkey do
That's why they got all the kids rockin bathing apes to school
Why you think they call em bathing apes
They think we just a bunch of babies and apes
I may be disturbed because I'm disgraced
I feel like an alien in outerspace
That's why I'm singin amazing grace to save this race
I do not know what it takes to make the dimension that I'm trying to create
We all got fucked we need to be hollerin great
But like they say it's just entertainment
But it's a game so all this niggas is playin
Even me
But what happens when the game changes
Your favorite rappers gon have to do some explainin

[Chorus:]
