song by Vince Staples
Nate feat. James Fauntleroy lyrics

As a kid all I wanted was to kill a man
Be like my daddy friends, hopping out that minivan
Chrome 38 spinning like a ceiling fan
Crying on my momma phone swearing you a different man
Talking to me monotone, hardly ever coming home
Louie was the villain, never been a fan of Superman
Beating on my momma in the kitchen
Screaming, "bitch, you better listen when I speak my mind"
Used to think he was unbreakable, he did fair time
But made sure nigga plate was full and I shined
Walking in the first day of school, new J's and all of that football
I was quarterback, never made a game, I play for Compton High
But my daddy was the man, that would be suicide
Picked me up for visitation in the newest ride
Always told me daddy loved me, fuck this foolish pride
As a kid all I wanted was to kill a man

'Cause my daddy did it, eyes bloodshot
But the caddy tinted, fuck handouts
Fuck the county building, never seen that
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back

As a kid all I wanted was a hundred grand
Uncle counting money while my daddy cutting grams
Made me promise that this shit would never touch my hands
And it never did, said it make me be a better man
Smoking in the crib, hiding dip inside the soda cans
Black bandanna on his arm, needle in his hand
Momma tryna wake him up, that's what I don't understand
Why she wouldn't let my daddy sleep
Used to see him standing out in the alley through my window
Drink ahead with his homies, blowing sick smoke
Lights flash, now we running from the Winslows
Derek screaming for my momma at the back door
Sometimes she wouldn't open it, sitting on the couch
Face emotionless, I don't think they ever noticed that I noticed it
As a kid all I wanted was a hundred grand

'Cause my daddy did it, eyes bloodshot
But the caddy tinted, fuck handouts
Fuck the county building, never seen that
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back

'Cause my daddy did it, eyes bloodshot
But the caddy tinted, fuck handouts
Fuck the county building, never seen that
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
WITH THE SEAT BACK, WITH THE SEAT BACK
Catch a ride around the city with the seat back
