Not Like Us Lyrics

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar]
Psst, I see dead people
(Mustard on the beat, ho)

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Ayy, Mustard on the beat, ho
Deebo any rap n!gga, he a free throw
Man down, call an amberlamps, tell him, "Breathe, bro"
Nail a n!gga to the cross, he walk around like Teezo
What's up with these jabroni-as* n!ggas tryna see Compton?
The industry can hate me, f**k 'em all and they mama
How many opps you really got? I mean, it's too many options
I'm finna pass on this body, I'm John Stockton
Beat your as* and hide the Bible if God watching
Sometimes you gotta pop out and show n!ggas
Certified boogeyman, I'm the one that up the score with 'em
Walk him down, whole time, I know he got some ho in him
Pole on him, extort sh!t, bully Death Row on him
Say, Drake, I hear you like 'em young
You better not ever go to cell block one
To any b!tch that talk to him and they in love
Just make sure you hide your lil' sister from him
They tell me Chubbs the only one that get your hand-me-downs
And Party at the party playing with his nose now
And Baka got a weird case, why is he around?
Certified Lover Boy? Certified pedophiles
Wop, wop, wop, wop, wop, Dot, f**k 'em up
Wop, wop, wop, wop, wop, I'ma do my stuff
Why you trolling like a b!tch? Ain't you tired?
Tryna strike a chord and it's probably A minor

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
They not like us, they not like us, they not like us
They not like us, they not like us, they not like us

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
You think the Bay gone let you disrespect Pac, n!gga?
I think that Oakland show gone be your last stop, n!gga
Did Cole fouI, I don't know why you still pretending
What is the owl? Bird n!ggas and bird b!tches, go
The audience not dumb
Shape the stories how you want, hey, Drake, they're not slow
Rabbit hole is still deep, I can go further, I promise
Ain't that something? B-Rad stands for b!tch and you Malibu most wanted
Ain't no law, boy, you ball boy, fetch Gatorade or something
Since 2009, I had this b!tch jumping
You n!ggas'll get a wedgie, be flipped over your boxers
What OVO for? The "Other Vaginal Option"? Pu**y
N!gga better straighten they posture
Got famous all up in Compton
Might write this for the doctorate
Tell the pop star, "Quit hiding"
F**k a caption, want action, no accident
And I'm hands-on, he f**k around, get polished
F**ked on Wayne girl while he was in jail, that's conniving
Then get his face tatted like a b!tch apologizing
I'm glad DeRoz' came home, y'all didn't deserve him neither
From Alondra down to Central, n!gga better not speak on Serena
And your homeboy need subpoena, that predator move in flocks
That name gotta be registered and placed on neighborhood watch
I lean on you n!ggas like another line of Wock'
Yeah, it's all eyes on me, and I'ma send it up to Pac, ayy
Put the wrong label on me, I'ma get 'em dropped, ayy
Sweet Chin Music and I won't pass the aux, ayy
How many stocks do I really have in stock? Ayy
One, two, three, four, five, plus five, ayy
Devil is a lie, he a 69 God, ayy
Freaky-as* n!ggas need to stay they as* inside, ayy
Roll they as* up like a fresh pack of 'za, ayy
City is back up, it's a must, we outside, ayy

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
They not like us, they not like us, they not like us
They not like us, they not like us, they not like us

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Once upon a time, all of us was in chains
Homie still doubled down calling us some slaves
Atlanta was the Mecca, building railroads and trains
Bear with me for a second, let me put y'all on game
The settlers was using townfolk to make 'em richer
Fast-forward, 2024, you got the same agenda
You run to Atlanta when you need a check balance
Let me break it down for you, this the real n!gga challenge
You called Future when you didn't see the club (Ayy, what?)
Lil Baby helped you get your lingo up (What?)
21 gave you false street cred
Thug made you feel like you a slime in your head (Ayy, what?)
Quavo said you can be from Northside (What?)
2 Chainz say you good, but he lied
You run to Atlanta when you need a few dollars
No, you not a colleague, you a f**king colonizer
The family matter and the truth of the matter
It was God's plan to show y'all the liar

[Bridge: Kendrick Lamar]
Mmm
Mm-mm
He a fan, he a fan, he a fan (Mm)
He a fan, he a fan, he a
Freaky-as* n!gga, he a 69 God
Freaky-as* n!gga, he a 69 God
Hey, hey, hey, hey, run for your life
Hey, hey, hey, hey, run for your life
Freaky-as* n!gga, he a 69 God
Freaky-as* n!gga, he a 69 God
Hey, hey, hey, hey, run for your life
Hey, hey, hey, hey, run for your life
Let me hear you say, "OV-ho" (OV-ho)
Say, "OV-ho" (OV-ho)
Then step this way, step that way
Then step this way, step that way

[Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
Are you my friend?
Are we locked in?
Then step this way, step that way
Then step this way, step that way
