Came from the bottom of mankindMy hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is round and wideYou hate me don't you?You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my cultureYou're fuckin' evil I want you to recognize I'm a proud monkeyYou vandalize my perception but can't take style from meAnd this is more than confession.
So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?When gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me?Hypocrite!
All them say we goons from the start, cah' we blackRemember this, every race start from the black, just remember that'

Kendrick's follow-up to 2012's Good Kid, M.a.a.d City still doesn't have a release date, but is expected this spring. Last night, he won his first two Grammy awards — Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance — for "i."
