«Deep Reverence» – Big Sean ft. Nipsey Hussle

Look, I’m a street legend, block love me with a deep reverence,
I was birthed in a C-section, hella cops and police presence, we got opps, so we keep weapons,
We on y’all block while y’all eat breakfast, a lot of shots, we broke street records, watch how you talk, I got reflexes
Watching your cheap necklace, then we slide out the east exit, but every time we get to fckin’ niggas up, TMZ catch it Y’all still learnin’ street lessons, from the mastermind, first you master grind, then your team catch it This time is for the money, I don’t need credit, and I’m the don ’cause the streets said it, look Fck rap, I’m a street legend
And I’m the don ’cause the streets said, Block love me with a deep reverence, and I’m the don ’cause the streets said it
*
Yeah, and I got pressure on me, seven days a week, it’s game seven on me, life’ll test you out, you live through that, that’s testimony
Givin’ ’em hell but how in the hell I got all these blessings on me? Most of the girls I know addicted to social media
All this time they put in, they could’ve wrote encyclopedias, Mama said it only takes one time to fuck up your whole Wikipedia
And as your son, I could see the type of light that you see me in, after what happened to Nipsey I reached out to Kendrick
It wasn’t even no real issues there to begin with, lack of communication and wrong information from people
Fueled by the ego is like mixing flames with diesel, energy crazy, I realize that it’s a two way street
What’s coming is going if it don’t give you more, it drains you, should be a billionaire based on the time off I’m not taking
Probably why this shit with me get crazy and we lost a baby, and everybody around me think I’m the one
But we all just one of ones, and I’m walkin’ out the crib, they ask me where I’m going, I told ’em I’m goin’ on another ten year run
Niggas is banging over blocks that they don’t own, thinking that’s home, boy, you think that’s where you’re from?
You don’t really know where you’re from, you don’t know how deep your roots is or what your ancestors had done
So God bless all the sons and daughters who knew their history, so they knew where to take it farther
And all the ones that stuck with me like good barbers, lookin’ at my life story, God’s a good author
Never was the loudest in the room, we move like ninjas, and if it cost you peace of mind, it might be too expensive
So I can give you everything that you want from me for free though, get you one shot in life, you might not be able to reload
So advanced, I need all my advances, Bro hit me up for cash like we didn’t have the same chances
My Dad hit me up like, why I don’t live in a mansion? I’m tryna focus, but baby girl, keep holding my mind for ransom
And that ain’t how it’s supposed to be, this man Hov got to a B, and his name Shawn too, I almost felt like it was me
Damn, I realize all my setbacks were inside of me, in high school I learned chemistry, biology
But not how to cope with anxiety, or how I could feel like I’m by myself on an island, with depression on all sides of me
With a Glock 17 right on the side of me, look, I ain’t think I had the thought of suicide in me
Until life showed me all these different sides of me, too many times I thought the reaper was outside for me
And how the fuck is people that never met me that hate me? I wonder if they understand that I meditate daily
And feel like my life purpose is to give inspiration, despite the hit songs that there’s just no escaping
That I take care of my family and beat the odds that were deadly, you hate that? That just reflects your lack of succession
Bless ’em, if it ain’t Nipsey blue, it’s Detroit blue, this that Detroit 2, I’m bringin’ it back to the hood like D boys do, gone

So the collaboration though with Nipsey and who?
Aww man, I’d prolly say Payroll or Tee Grizzley, me and Big Sean talked about doing something recently too, so, you know all of ’em, I’ma, I’ma tap in with all of Detroit

Big Sean:

“I always wanted to do a sequel to Detroit because I felt like it was an album. It was a mixtape, but it was really an album for me, so in a way it’s like I’m returning to the essence of myself, new and improved. If I don’t have a line in a song that doesn’t make anybody want to get it tattooed on them, then I didn’t do a good job. Like, I pray somebody gets tattooed. That’s like one of my goals. Songs like “Lucky Me” and “Deep Reverence” are full of these kinds of quotables. I’m hungry on these songs. I feel like I got a lot to prove to myself. My life’s purpose is to inspire. And I feel like the best way I can do that right now is through my music.”
