Track Name: DOPE (That Real)
[chorus]
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real
gotta get that real, gotta get that real, gotta get that real
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real...
DOPE

[verse 1]
It takes a foundation for nations to build
And nothing will heal if legacy starts in the field
Under the heel of the man on The Hill
Who wants you to feel invisible weight you carry ain't real
But he will steal,
whatever you make of yourself out in that field
But it ain't REAL
And make a killing from all the stealing
But it ain't REAL
Don't like the color but want the feeling
NONE of it's REAL
High level dealing, my people's dope
Back to themselves, minus the hope
Cuz we make chains from outta the rope
You thought we would hang...
But we let it swing in the air with our name
To "keep it REAL"
Like what you see?
So you just steal...
LLC my people's real
But it ain't REAL
But it ain't REAL

[chorus]
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real
gotta get that real, gotta get that real, gotta get that real
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real...
DOPE

[verse 2]
You telling me my lips don't look good 'til I see it on them
Full of collagen?
And my Size 10 ain't thin
So I ain't in but,
I'll BUY in to what I possess
Ain't good enough and never address
what is thin skin under a dressed-
Up looking fly but REALLY a mess!
And me, I'm supposed to believe that it's REAL?
But it ain't REAL
But it ain't REAL
He wants a doll as part of the deal
When he ain't one AT ALL
Just keeping it real
And how I feel ain't even addressed
Cuz we obsess on the flesh
Instead of progress towards happiness
We're masking the stress
and NONE of it's real
Status update on just how we feel
Instead of just deal
NONE of it's real
NONE of it's real

[chorus]
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real
gotta get that real, gotta get that real, gotta get that real
we got that real, we got that real, we got that real...
DOPE
