Lyrics

If I was black, prolly wouldn't fuck with anyone who's white
'Cause that slavery shit would honestly always be on my mind
If I was black, prolly wouldn't ever wanna drive
'Cause if police pull me over, I might fuck around and die
If I was black, I won't lie, I'd be scared to walk at night
The whole neighborhood is trippin' like I'm out committin' crimes
I'd be pissed at all these cracker rappers singin' 'bout my life
Stole my music, stole my style, give it back, that shit is mine
If I was black, just look at the facts, we don't stand a chance
One in three is locked away, over half don't know they dad
See, white privilege ain't a money thing,
but it's white people who are runnin' things
Y'all benefit from your colorin', my pigment produce sufferin'
It's all white pride, white power,
white lies, white houses, white guys, white washin'
My brothers, my sisters, my culture, while I'm watchin'
If I was black I'd probably hate myself from shit they say
Racism made me racist and I am not the one to blame

Ayy, y'all won't say it to my face, in the circles you feel safe
Y'all been usin' words they made for us when we were slaves
Ayy, hey, wait, woah, I know that was long ago
If I was black I'd want my reparation money paid in full

If I was black I'd say fuck the police
I'd say fuck the whole Klan, I'd put holes in they sheets
If I was black I'd put gold on my teeth
So if you think I'm broke you would know when I speak
If I was black, it's my face on the tee
R.I.P. underneath or my name next to free
If I was black I would die in these streets
Just for speakin' my mind because I had a dream
If I was black

If I was black, prolly wouldn't ever do my taxes
Why support a government that persecute my blackness?
Or pay the wage of law enforcement puttin' us in caskets?
Or help to build the prisons that we trapped in?
If I was black I'd be mad, people glorify the trap
While we dyin' everyday fightin' for everything we have
It ain't diamond chains and racks, this the systematic plan
They put us the in the ghetto, gave us HIV and crack
If I was black I'd hate America, appropriate my character
And sell it to Caucasians who wish they were from my area
If I was black I wouldn't give a fuck about the greater good
My grandma can't afford her rent, y'all gentrified our neighborhood
All Lives Matter, so stupid, y'all hijackin' our movement
Black Lives Matter 'cause we losin' innocent youth of police shootin's
If I was black, the only role models I'm shown
Is the rich black rappers, pushin' guns and drugs and hoes
(Yeah)

Ayy, y'all won't say it to my face, in the circles you feel safe
Y'all been usin' words they made for us when we were slaves
Ayy, hey, wait, woah, I know that was long ago
If I was black I'd want my reparation money paid in full

If I was black I'd say fuck the police
I'd say fuck the whole Klan, I'd put holes in they sheets
If I was black I'd put gold on my teeth
So if you think I'm broke you would know when I speak
If I was black, it's my face on the tee
RIP underneath or my name next to free
If I was black I would die in these streets
Just for speakin' my mind because I had a dream
If I was black

You'd attack when I say it, I'm proud
'Cause you mad because you ain't allowed
(If I was black)
Y'all ever try to take me down
One fist in the air I would stand my ground

If I was black I'd say fuck the police
I'd say fuck the whole Klan, I'd put holes in they sheets
If I was black I'd put gold on my teeth
So if you think I'm broke you would know when I speak
If I was black, it's my face on the tee
R.I.P underneath or my name next to free
If I was black I would die in these streets
Just for speakin' my mind because I had a dream
If I was black
