Joey Badass For My People Lyrics

[Intro]
You know
Yeah
Always wanted to have super powers
You know, uh

[Hook]
It’s for my people, tryin’ stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero
For my people, yeah
It’s for my people, tryin’ to stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero

[Verse]
Uh, now all heroes don’t wear capes
And all villains don’t get away
But all limits eventually fade
I don’t wanna be good, nigga I’m tryin’ to be great
It’s hard when your back’s against the wall, and if you got an order keep your feet up on the floor
That’s why I thank the lord when I wake up in the morn’
‘Cause through him you can see every reason I was born
You can see the power when the mic is in my palm
When I storm across the room, hit the stage and perform
Word is bond, don’t be alarmed
Don’t make me have to send him home, and drop a bomb
Want to get my mom a crib, with a lawn
Something that my future kids, can run up on
That’s why I always do my best to carry on
Heaven’s like game of chess, don’t be a pawn my nigga

[Hook]
It’s for my people, tryin’ to stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero
For my people, yeah
It’s for my people, tryin’ to stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero
For my people, yeah

[Verse 2]
Look up in the sky, it’s a bird it’s a plane
No, it’s a young black god livin’ out his dreams
What you mean I been up on an ultralight beam
They don’t wanna see you fly, they just gonna shoot your wings
Everyday, the world has seen
Wishing all these dirty cops, would come clean
Still swerving on these city blocks, for one thing
I may just cop the 30 shot, protect the team, know what I mean?
Music is a form of expression
I’mma use mine just to teach you a lesson
Rule one: this microphone’s a weapon
I’m shootin’ out the actions manifested in my passion
Influencing and surpassing, they expect to see a life in my direction
Man that section 8 depressin’
Hard to be progression through recession and oppression
Not to mention that the had our soul blocked ever since an adolescent

[Hook]
It’s for my people, tryin’ to stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero
For my people, yeah
It’s for my people, tryin’ to stay alive and just stay peaceful
So hard to survive a world so lethal
Who will take the stand and be our hero
For my people, yeah

[Outro]
Oh, yeah
Oh, mm
Oh, yeah
