Crooked I - Nobody Understands Me (ft. Erykah Badu)
#1
Artist: Crooked I (feat. Erykah Badu)
Song: Nobody Understands Me
Produced by:
Appears on:


Intro:

Well one of the reasons we dont have any death penalties
Because we cant find anybody that pull the switch, shiiiii
This man gettin mugged, somebody gettin robbed
It's always somethin

Chorus: (Erykah Badu)

The World keeps burnin (3x)
What a day, what a daaaaay

Verse 1: (Crooked I)

A hard childhood, reflects in the face the niggas
My father figure abandoning me
And got replaced by triggers
Think of the county checks and projects
I grab the chrome
Cause somebody told me
"God bless the child that got his own"
Im looking for missions to get mine far from cockin steel
Im riskin penitentiary time to keep my pockets filled
Police on my line for all of the weapons I conceal
Realisin momma didnt raise me up to rob or kill
So how does it feel to live your life where the grass is greener
And never have to walk with uncle shotty and aunt nina
Knowing you'll probably die before your 21 or older
And  mobbin with the weight of the world on your young shoulders
The more of my homies die the more of my heart'll turn colder
Thats why niggas dont give a fuck to bang or slang boulders
My soldiers are dyin, My peoples are catchin slugs
I hide my pain behind mad dogs and mean mugs
And still nobody understands me

Chorus (2x): (Erykah Badu)

Nobody Understands Me
I wanna be happy
Me and my family


Verse 2: (Crooked I)

Im bowing my head at the funereal where the last respects are paid
Seeing how death is the aftermath of wrong decisions made
Whoever took my loved ones away can never be safe
Cause if I dont rob, my people'll turnin over in they grave
Im gettin a migraine from anger watching his momma cry
My heart  screams revenge cause thats not a fair goodbye
The cycle'll never stop cause we know the weapons then
Commit the deadly sin livin and dyin for my kin
A dead man walkin is the state to sleaze me in
Im hopin to find some happiness so I can breathe again
Please consider the ghetto before you judge me for my d's
The lessons I learned from pain became game for my seeds
Im hollerin at my niggas so we vanquish all the anguish
But say the word unite is like you speakin another language
Cause all they know is shootin up the dark streets
I watch my back and keep a couple of straps in arms reach
You probably dont Understand me

Chorus (2x): (Erykah Badu)

Nobody Understands Me
I wanna be happy
Me and my family

Verse 3: (Crooked I)

Im thinking about my future
Where do I choose to go from here
Im knowing time is wasted in chasin money, hoes and gear
Hustlin on the streets'll get you pen time or blasted
Now Im in search of a place far from handcuffs and caskets
The system will get us all and keep the jails overcrowded
While we kill each other up, thats the cold thing about it
A nigga was taught to keep your khakis creased and toat the strap
And whenever its time to eat, grab your heat go out and jack
The ghetto is all we got
The rest of the world dont feel us
Aint no doctors in the hood mayne
We look up to dope dealers
All that I seen, was a grip of scandalous schemes
Innocent bystanders shot
Robbin em off they hoop dreams
What I mean to say is people dont have no clue
Come around my way
And see the shit we go through
Maybe then you'll understand me

And we should be about the business of doing something about it, now!

Chorus: (Erykah Badu)

Nobody Understands Me
I wanna be happy
Me and my family

I'm pretty sure he says "gear" where you have the question mark. Gear as in clothes.
