Song lyrics:

[Ponte]
If Pirus and Crips all got along
Theyd probably gun me down by the end of this song
Seem like the whole city go against me
Every time Im in the street I hear

[ScHoolBoy Q]
YAWK! YAWK! YAWK! YAWK!

[Gancho]
Man down, where you from, n***a?
f** who you know, where you from, my n***a?
Where your grandma stay, huh, my n***a?
This m.A.A.d city I run, my n***a

[Verso 1]
Brace yourself, Ill take you on a trip down memory lane
This is not a rap on how Im slinging crack or move c**aine
This is cul-de-sac and plenty Cognac and major pain
Not the drill sergeant, but the stress that weighing on your brain
It was Me, L Boogs and Yan Yan, YG, Lucky ride down Rosecrans
It got ugly, waving your hand out the window, check yourself, uh
Warriors and Conans, hope euphoria can slow dance
With society, the driver seat the first one to get k**ed
Seen a light-skinned n***a with his brains blown out
At the same burger stand where *beep* hang out
Now this is not a tape recorder saying that he did it
But ever since that day, I was looking at him different
That was back when I was nine, Joey packed the nine
Pakistan on every porch is fine, we adapt to crime
Pack a van with four guns at a time, with the sliding door, f** is up?
f** you shooting for if you aint walking up, you f**ing punk?
Picking up the f**ing pump, picking off you s**ers
s** a dick or die or s**er punch, a wall of bullets coming from
AKs, ARs, Aye yall, duck
Thats what momma said when we was eating the free lunch
Aw man, goddamn, all hell broke loose
You k**ed my cousin back in 94, f** your truce
Now crawl your head in that noose, you wind up dead on the news
Aint no peace treaty, just pieces BGs up to pre-approve
Bodies on top of bodies, IVs on top of IVs
Obviously the coroner between the sheets like the Isleys
When you hop on that trolley, make sure your colors correct
Make sure youre corporate, or theyll be calling your mother collect
They say the governor collect, all of our taxes except
When we in traffic and tragic happens, that sh** aint no threat
You moving backwards if you suggest that you sleep with a Tec
Go buy a chopper and have a doctor on speed dial, I guess, m.A.A.d city

[Gancho + Ponte]

[Parte 2]

[Introdução: MC Eiht]
Wake your punk a** up! It aint nothing but a Compton thang, G-yeah. Real simple and plain, Imma teach you some lessons about the street. It aint nothing but a Compton thang, G-yeah. How we do

[Verso 2]
Fresh outta school cause I was a high school grad


Sleeping in the living room in my mommas pad
Reality struck I seen the white car crash
Hit the light pole two n***as hopped out on foot and dashed
My pops said I needed a job I thought I believed him
Security guard for a month and ended up leaving
In fact I got fired cause I was inspired by all of my friends
To stage a robbery the third Saturday I clocked in
Projects tore up, gang signs get thrown up
Cocaine laced in marijuana
And they wonder why I rarely smoke now
Imagine if your first blunt had you foaming at the mouth
I was straight tweaking the next weekend, we broke even
I made allegiance that made a promise to see you bleeding
You know the reasons but still wont ever know my life
Kendrick A.K.A. Comptons human sacrifice

[Interlúdio: MC Eiht]
G-yeah, c**aine, weed. n***as been mixing sh** since the 80s, loc. Sherm sticks, butt nakeds. Dip, make a n***a flip. Cluck heads all up and down the block and sh**. One times crooked and sh**. Block a n***a in. Alondra, Rosecrans, Bullis, its Compton

[Verso 3: MC Eiht]
Im still in the hood, loc, yeah, thats cool
The hood took me under so I follow the rules
But yeah thats like me, I grew up in the hood where they bang
And n***as that rep colors is doing the same thing
Pa** it to the left so I can smoke on me
A couple drive-bys in the hood lately
Couple of I.V.s with the f**ing spraycan
Shots in the crowd then everybody ran
Crew Im finna slay, the street life I crave
Shots hit the enemy, hearts turn brave
Mount up, regulators in the whip
Down the boulevard with the pistol grip
Trip, we in the hood still
So loc, grab a strap cause yeah, its so real
Deal with the outcome, a strap in the hand
And a bird and 10 grands where a mothaf**a stand

[Verso 4]
If I told you I k**ed a n***a at 16, would you believe me?
Or see me to be innocent Kendrick you seen in the street
With a basketball and some Now and Laters to eat
If I mentioned all of my skeletons, would you jump in the seat?
Would you say my intelligence now is great relief?
And its safe to say that our next generation maybe can sleep
With dreams of being a lawyer or doctor, instead of boy with a chopper
That hold the cul-de-sac hostage, k** em all if they gossip
The Children of the Corn, they vandalizing
The option of living a lie, drown their body with toxins
Constantly drinking and drive, hit the powder then watch this flame
That arrive in his eye, listen coward, the concept is aim
And they bang it and slide out that b**h with deposits
A price on his head, the tithes probably go to the projects
I live inside the belly of the rough
Compton, U.S.A. made Me an Angel on Angel Dust, what

[Skit]
– n***a, pa** Dot the bottle, damn! You aint the one that got f**ed up, what you holding it for? n***as always acting unsensitive and sh**
– n***a, that aint no word
– n***a, Shut up! Hey, Dot, you good, my n***a? Dont even trip, just lay back and drink that
