Kendrick Lamar – DNA. Lyrics

(Verse 1)
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’s new weapon
I don’t contemplate, I meditate, then off your f***ing head
This that put the kids to bed
This that I got, I got, I got, I got
Realness, I just kill sh*t 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
Bi**h, your hormones prolly switch inside your DNA
Problem is, all that s**ker s**t 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
Sh*t 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
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 gon shine like I’m supposed to
Antisocial, extrovert
And excellent mean the extra work
And absentness what the f**k you heard
And pessimists never struck my nerve
And that’s a riff, gonna plead this case
The reason my power’s here on earth
Salute the truth, when the prophet say

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 got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
I live a better life, I’m rolling several dice, f**k your life
I got loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
I live a better, f**k your life
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
This is my heritage, all I’m inheriting
Money and power, the making of marriages

(Verse 2)
Tell me something
You mothaf**kas 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’re 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 and 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
Motherf**ker, I got winners on the way
You ain’t s**t without a body on your belt
You ain’t s**t 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, murde our DNA
