Lyrics

[Verse One]
This not a song to gas a girl head
Or get a girl to bed
A proclamation that the queen been shot and dead
Cause way too many peers of mine kick rhymes
Throwing lines like "queen" in they vocab and at the same time
Grind on a woman at the club while the wife
Spend the night with his kid, he see his life like a bid
While his wife by the shit that he did while words fly
So I'm here to check these brothers, tell these sister's they lying
I know these players out here
Gon' say I'm blocking that cock
Thing is I'm man enough to step up and the rest of y'all not
Some of y'all got daughters and all of y'all got moms
Y'all been treating other women like y'all I hate y'all mom
Kanye had a mama who taught women at Clark
But when he raps he be tearing young women apart
Huh...right?
Somebody check me if I'm wrong
Take a bad yellow bitch make her drop them drawers
The queen's dead

[Hook] {x4}
Boom bye, bye I heard the queen was dead
I heard the queen was dead
I heard the queen was dead

[Verse Two]
This is why I don't refer to women as "queens"
Cause you got fingers like me, can squeeze an M16
You a soldier like me so until our people are free
The title "queen" means shit, I don't feel like a king
They'll hold you up in such a way, it's just a new way to play
Cause in the way a person treat you, go beyond what they say
This is a twist on the word "bitch" with just a little switch
Mind sex, mind games, the authentic-ness
Is self taught through the wrongs that I've made and still make
Me and Krish we wildin' up in each other's face
I can't lie, like it's all peace, but in these dark streets
I bet my life she'll be the first to pull a trey pound piece
And do a bid for me
And take a life for me
That ain't the actions of a bourgeois-zee queen to me
Right?
Somebody check me if I'm wrong
It's the new patriarchy in a conscious song
The queen's dead

[Hook]

[Verse Three]
Listen, I would rather brothers call you "queen" than "bitch"
But if the intent behind it is motivated by sex
Then genuine it's prolly not
So that's why I said, "the queen's dead"
So I call you a "soldier" instead
I said, I would rather brothers call you "queen" than "bitch"
But if the intent behind it is motivated by sex
Then genuine it's prolly not
So that's why I said, "the queen's dead"
So I call you a "soldier" instead

[Hook]
