At some point, whether or not black folks
Should use the word or a derivation of the word
Ending in "a" - that's a black conversation
And white folks, anybody who isn't black
Should stay out of that conversation
For us, there's a history, there's a context
I've heard white people say "we're gonna help em
Reclaim the word!" if you want to fight racism
Raid a police station...

Everybody in my city pushing keys and that's all these kids see
That's the only thing they hear and that's
The only thing they'll be, we call it: "swag, swag, swag"
The homies is busting slugs, the women is shaking ass
The white girls call us "nigga" and
We just sit back and laugh and call it "swag, swag, swag"

I am no preacher, bitch I'm a teacher
More like a thinker, dreamer, believer-pick one
A thousand albums came out last year and I ain't get one
Cause these boys looking like man-tan
I make hits like grand sam
Never had a problem keeping up
These boys songs sound weird as fuck
I ain't thinking about easing up, I'm going hard
Til my lease is up and my time will be peaking up
It's only right that I tell her
Don't buy into everything that these rappers are selling
Thinking that they winning, but really
These niggas failing the people
And feeding evil to the streets that made you
Raised you on great food, my mama ain't raised no dummy
Her never let a muthafucka take from me
?
Hit the game harder than some?

Everybody in my city pushing keys and that's all these kids see
That's the only thing they hear and that's
The only thing they'll be, we call it: "swag, swag, swag"
The homies is busting slugs, the women is shaking ass
The white girls call us "nigga" and
We just sit back and laugh and call it "swag, swag, swag"

Is anybody on the next level with me?
I'm hearing niggas dissing god, y'all think it's witty
I ain't laughing, we don't play in mississippi
When I was broke, selling my soul wasn't tempting
