Lyrics
I'm America's worst nightmare
I'm young black and too intelligent to be scared
I'm from back when you knew everyone you was near
And your circle been around and could never produce a square, right?
I'm from there and you know how living there goes
Ribbons in the air and love whipped into O's
My man be sending prayers up for the give and the go
He said he pull a chair up and blow a kiss to the stove, mwah
All love like splitting this hero with you
Or when they toss slugs to see if there's hero in you
I'm here to talk us and see if it's beneficial
And it's really all love if you bringing some Henny with you, right?

'Cause God bless what the Hennessy made clearer
Sitting in your chest while you sit out the day with us
The feeling that you got when you see what some cake get us
Or the feeling of you watching them tear down the Slave Theater, right?
They place you to get yours then put you outta place
Knowing you was just taught to keep a hideaway
Like you don't come from the store until you got a plate
Or flowers over your thoughts like Billie Holiday
Either or, or, until we up and gone
They're calling 311 but they was color drawn
I watched spots get turned to croissant sellers
Like how I watched pots get turned into card pressers
Tried to make it all make sense like more Adderall
Where every note carries over like if I add a horn
Caught a way up with visions of 40 acres
So know when I talk these I add a Lee like Cannonball

Adderley? Cannonball? Never mind
That'll make sense by tomorrow if you should get the time
No ticking like you spent ten long on the ticket
I kick it like a Carmichael with it, and you stoked
I did it for the power of a lobby
Swear to keep it low unless I'm spotted like I'm Kwame
I still never had to go and find a P.O.
But my brother does, commissary honey buns
Tryna keep 250 with him on the up and up
Knowing it's still Bill and Russell when it come to us
And what it was turns into what it be now
All that you've become was given from what you be round
He said Sky I was just looking to get a lead out
Tryna get this run fore I kick it like it was three downs
I said I'm tryna stop the Get Out's from playing keep out
Both of us was talking bout how we can put a knee down
His for the score, and mine for the cause
Live for it all, aligned from the door
Word to the new Jim Crow and how parole go
And word to all of the above seeming homegrown

Homegrown for the sake of it, uh
Know to keep it homegrown for the sake of it, uh
Do it for home and all the shit that you make of it
Do it for home before they go get to taking it
Homegrown

Homegrown for the sake of it, uh
Know to keep it homegrown for the sake of it, uh
Do it for home and all the shit that you make of it
Do it for home before they go get to taking it
Homegrown
