Joey Bada$$ – AMERIKKKAN IDOL Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah, uh, uh
Turn the music up in the headphones
Watch me get gone
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]
Amerikkkan I don’t want hand vibe
I want my hand on my rifle
I’m aiming at my rival, sure to leave him dead on arrival
They say it’s all about survival never lacking the vitals
So I kill and kill again, mister give a revival
I’m coming for the title game, but she throwing you topper
Last nigga who tried to foul now facin’ a trial
I’mma be here for a while, gettin’ richie like Lionel
Now she all up in denial because she gettin’ it down
While I’m only gettin’ better so she back on my D now
I wanna be down but she denounced
I got my shot and made it, bounce
Now you tryna rebound
I’m living in the now
While the future figure me out, told mommy pick a place and we out
Cause Bed Stuy a little unsafe for me now
That’s why I keep the .40 loaded with no safety around
Never thought I’d have to hold it, I’m just holding it down
Protect my neck and my crown, patrol throughout the town
And they judging because my skin color is brown
And for that, they wanna leave me dead in the ground
And have the nerve to blame it all on my background
Sorry white Amerikkka but I’m about to black out
Got a message for the world and I won’t back out
So turn the [?] out
I’m about to spazz out
Watch out, another nigga runnin’ in the White House
But I won’t stop till this whole shit painted in all black
And we on top, because my people been painted before crack
Media’s got this whole thing tinted, it’s all fat
Feeding you lies like this whole thing wasn’t built on our backs
Assimilate our history, then made it a mystery
Now they all inherit the, bittersweet victory
Look at what they did to me, can I get a witness please?
Justice never served reparations never sent to me
It’s clear who the enemy, they declare war on the enemy
Assassinate my character, buryin’ my entity
But they can’t kill my energy, so when it’s said and done they forever gon’ remember me
The fuck is you tellin’ me?
Fuck is you tellin’ me?
Way more than a celebrity
And fuck white supremacy

[Hook]
I’m out for
Dead presidents that represent me
Dead fucking presidents that represent me
I’m out for dead presidents that represent me
Because I’ve never known a live one that represent me
I’m out for dead presidents that represent me
Dead fucking presidents that represent me
Because I’ve never known a live one that represent me

[Refrain 1]
No contest, can’t fuck with the congress
Me and my niggas going off like bomb threats
No contest, can’t fuck with the congress
Me and my niggas going off like bomb threats
Me and my niggas going off like bomb threats
Me and my niggas going off like bomb threats
Me and my niggas going off

[Verse 2]
This that Bada$$-assination
Topic of conversation, my proclamation to the nation and its congregation
Been making observations like its my occupation
Debating speculation like it ain’t just second nature
Thou shall love thy neighbor, don’t let that nigga hate you
‘Cause he know where you lay up, when it’s karma time to pay up
Climb the ladder of success I’m steady on my way though
Devising plans while you sleepin’ I’m just tryna stay woke

[Refrain 2]
You leave me no choice, I’m about to bring noise
Got to fill this void, I got to be the voice
Yeah yeah yeah
I said leave me no choice, about to bring noise
Got to fill this void, I got to be the voice

[Verse 3]
What the government is doing to our people is downright evil but not surprising, that’s for certain
Under the conflict of propaganda, I believe simply trying to slander
Start a Civil War within the USA amongst black and white and those elite
They are simply pushing us to our limit so that we can all get together and get with it
They want us to rebel, so that it makes easier for them to kill us and put us in jails
Alton Sterlings are happening every day in this country and around the world
The scary part, boys and girls, is most of these stories don’t make it to the news and reach mass consciousness
It is for sure time that we as a people stand up for acknowledgement and accomplishment of what we call human rights
It is time to rebel, better yet, raise hell
I just want everyone to be cautious about how they go about it
Because this is all part of the government’s plan and what they been plottin’
They’re literally begging for this to happen, so they can kill us off using uprising and rebellion as an excuse in a timely fashion
The cancerous foods, the chemical warfare, economic suffering is not working fast enough
There are many steps ahead of us and manifesting the future that they want
We have to work together, not only rattling them on a physical plane but to outsmart them on an intellectual mental level the same thing
As black men, I think our gangs need to do a better job at protecting us, the people, our communities
And not assisting in destroying them brutally
It’s time to even the score
‘Cause who do we call when the police break the law
We are so quick to pick up a gun and kill one another
But not quick enough to pick it up and protect each other
The code words to killin’ a black man by police is “He’s got a gun”
Damned if he do, damned if he don’t, damned if he runs
Or what about them, them murderers got it
We need solutions, you better start plotting now
It’s always been clear that they don’t value our lives
My people been suffering way too long, and I’m tired of singing the same old song
People acting like this shit isn’t happening, it’s downright wrong
Justice won’t be served by a hashtag, and that’s the very reason I ask that
What are we to do? We’re scattered around
With no clue of this ugly truth
All we know is who they ridiculed and who gets minisculed
Time to wake the fuck up and do our own research
And not form opinions based on just what we’ve heard
Ameri-K-K-K-a is force feeding you lies down your throats with a silver spoon
And eventually, we’ll all be doomed
Real, real, real soon
