      Nipsey Hussle - Dedication (feat. Kendrick Lamar) Música y Letra

      [Verse 1: Nipsey Hussle]
      Look, my nigga this is dedication, this is anti-hesitation
      This a real nigga celebration
      This a Dime Blocc declaration
      59th and 5th Ave, granny house with vanilla wafers
      This the remedy, the separation
      2Pac of my generation, blue pill in the fuckin' Matrix
      Red rose in the gray pavement
      Young black nigga trapped and he can't change it
      Know he a genius, he just can't claim it
      'Cause they left him no platforms to explain it
      He frustrated so he get faded
      But deep down inside he know you can't fade him
      How long should I stay dedicated?
      How long 'til opportunity meet preparation?
      I need some real nigga reparations
      'Fore I run up in your bank just for recreation
      
      [Chorus: Nipsey Hussle]
      Dedication, hard work plus patience
      The sum of all my sacrifice, I'm done waitin'
      I'm done waitin', told you that I wasn't playin'
      Now you hear what I been sayin'
      Dedication
      It's dedication, look
      
      [Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
      I spent my whole life thinkin' out the box
      Boxin' homies three-on-one, got DP'ed but I ain't drop
      Chirp on me, here I come, brrt, spin around the block
      They blurped on me, said I ran a stop sign but that's a lie
      I spent my whole life starin' at the stage
      Playin' Sega, daddy smokin' sherm, mama playin' spades
      Catchin' vapors, grandma said I'd get some Jordans for my grades
      That's my baby, when she died my heart broke a hundred ways
      I spent my whole life tryna make it, tryna chase it
      The cycle of a black man divided, tryna break it
      You take a loss? Shit, don't cry about it, just embrace it
      Minor setback for major comeback, that's my favorite
      My nigga L said, "You do a song with Nip, K. Dot he a better Crip"
      I said, "He a man first, you hear the words out his lips
      About flourishing from the streets to black businesses?"
      Level four, yard livin', given to false imprisonment
      Listen close, my nigga
      It's bigger than deuces and fours, my nigga
      Since elementary we close, my nigga, yeah, straight like that
      I give you the game, go back to the turf and give it right back
      For generations we been dealt bad hands with bad plans
      Prove your dedication by hoppin' out Grand Am's
      I'm at the premiere politickin' with Top, Nip, and Snoop
      Damn, Pac watchin' the way we grew, from dedication
      
      [Interlude: Kendrick Lamar]
      If it ain't congratulate then it look like hate
      If it ain't congratulate then it look like what, Nipsey?
      Hol' up
      
      [Verse 3: Nipsey Hussle]
      Look
      This ain't entertainment, it's for niggas on the slave ship
      These songs just the spirituals I swam against them waves with
      Ended up on shore to they amazement
      Now I hope the example I set's not contagious
      Lock us behind gates but can't tame us
      Used to be, "Stay safe," now it's, "Stay dangerous"
      'Cause ain't no point in playin' defense, nigga
      That's why I dove off the deep end, nigga, without a life jacket
      Couple mil', tour the world, dawg, my life crackin'
      Cook the books, bring it back so it's no taxes
      Royalties, publishing, plus I own masters
      I'll be damned if I slave for some white crackers
      I was mappin' this out, I hit the heist backwards
      Hoppin' out the eighty-five in Reebok Classics
      Ran a couple marathons just to get established
      To make it happen, you got to have it
      
      [Chorus: Nipsey Hussle]
      Dedication, hard work plus patience
      The sum of all my sacrifice, I'm done waitin'
      I'm done waitin', told you that I wasn't playin'
      Now you hear what I been sayin'
      Dedication
      It's dedication
