A ***** feelin' hopeless
Who am I to change perception?
If a ***** kill a ***** he's another statistic
If his skin's a little different they gon' say it was self defense
***** feelin' hopeless
Starin' at the idiom box, riddle me this
If a killer was a ***** would *****s still really care
Cause *****s worser than Zimmerman livin' life everywhere
*****s hopeless
Small *****s with big tools
Couldn't get to Harvard, hard work, he hard whipped
Cause them hardy hah's and hard nights
Are hard to live through
When you hopeless
What we gotta do to be winnin'?
Cause all the schools gettin' closed
Dribble a little, coach, shootin' at a foe
Cause they chargin' them to hoop at community center
My *****, hopeless
25 bands, he was shootin' not a damn givin'
Cousin threw a couple grand at some dancers
Throwin' back their fat ***, is my glasses confused?
We're the hopeless
America's dream and nightmare in the same being
Even when being polite here
*****s try to bring me down, the life of a pioneer
Lightyears worth of hopeless
Celebrities celebratin' disgust me
The cerebellum invaded with all these fresh things on
Watchin' "Love and Hip Hop : Atlanta" as we speak
***** we hopeless
Okay, the Steebie show is on
And so my broad rollin' weed now she's mad at me
Cause she seen a scene with Rasheeda baby father
Said, "You *****s all hopeless"

Got a pocket full of lint again, but it make no difference to me
Fallin' out with my friends again, but it make no difference to me
Goddamn I'm hopeless
Oh man I'm hopeless
Got no gas in my tank again, but it make no difference to me
Overdraft at the bank again, but it make no difference to me
Goddamn I'm hopeless
Lord knows I'm hopeless
Still I pray

***** feelin' hopeless
Like a Penny with a hole in it
We as empty as a corazón of a widow
From a soul that she don't know when he's comin' home
He don't got no limit, hopeless
What's a purple heart to a hurt head?
He done done 12 years, he was told 6
Prolly go back in a minute, ain't **** here
***** so hopeless
Thoughts are ravaging in the whole crib
Now he post-traumatic and always on the edge
On the pills, some bills, two kids, one leg
***** so hopeless
A lot of black cops always clap back
And some foul white cops always on deck
Playin' race card, guarantee you'll make a blackjack
***** so hopeless
Cause we ain't 'posed to ever have ****
And we ain't vocal as rap
*****s cause we don't mope unless we trap hits
***** hopeless
Look at what I go through to show you
*****s respect money, money respect power
And power, we never given unless
A ***** catch, shoot or dribble
We are hopeless
Nah you ain't out here for the culture
You finna riot, without a purpose
You ain't a motha****in' rider, you a ****in' token, posin'
***** hopeless
Of course not literal
But why complain about the man
When a ***** with my skin
The same problems with them I had
Is out there killin' *****s too?
Eat your food, *****

Got a pocket full of lint again, but it make no difference to me
Fallin' out with my friends again, but it make no difference to me
Goddamn I'm hopeless
Oh man I'm hopeless
Got no gas in my tank again, but it make no difference to me
Overdraft at the bank again, but it make no difference to me
Goddamn I'm hopeless
Lord knows I'm hopeless
Still I pray
