LISTEN TO
I GOT WHAT
THEY WANT
HERE

VERSE 1:

1985 I arrived with the juice/

Momma named me junior cause my daddy was the truth/

Had to see that gradually his attitude was boof/

Actually his battle was with needles and the booZE/

Hadn't seen examples of what he was supposed to do/

And he wasn't planning to have baby number 2/

Mad at leaving college on a scholarship to hoop/

All that brought was drama that my momma would consume/

Never getting used to all the physical abuse/

Late nights always using saw him do it never knew what he was doing/

But the proof/

I used to hide it from him used throw it on the rooF/

Didn't want him dying from it that's best that I could do/

Sold it but he smoked it when he rolled out with the crew/

Wouldn't take it slow he didn't know that he should cruise/

Mama Neta told him wish he would've listened to her/

But he wasn't in control he didn't know what he was doing/

Momma stayed true through the smoke and the fumes/

His devotion to ruin/

left her open move/

Didn't have a clue what she had to do but she was through/

Knew she had to choose chose to go pursue something new/

Glad we didn't lose/

Sad to see a tragedy a truth/

But naturally imagine how I grew to be confuseD/

Review another view/

Cause daddy was a dope man too/

CHORUS:

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

He was doing what a dope man do/

Only moving how a dope man move/

Had a plan that he hoped came through/

Understanding it what most cain't do/

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

VERSE 2:

2013 told her we could make a move/

Wasn't really ready but I didn't want to lose/

Yeah my heart was heavy it was broken in to two/

Knew I needed healing on my own and that was true/

Still I put my head in to your arms and it was cool/

Steadily we fell into a love we never knew/

Telling me that you didn't care about what I pursue/

Even when the only checks deposited was you/

Feeling disrespected every time the rent due/

Still you whip it in the kitchen go and get the menu/

Friends and family got opinions and THEY reprimand you/

They didn't see the vision couldn't get a better view/

Telling you exactly what I'm feeling in the booth/

I done been attacked for representing what is true/

I know that my action is the only way to prove/

Matter fact let's take back to when we wasn't cool/

We was on the phone something I don't like to do/

But being on the road it's something that I'm used to/

I put that on my soul I wanted you to be in tune/

With knowledge I consume/

I need you to make the rules/

Take a new direction but together we would choose/

Based on the reflection from the heavens I include/

Never would I step on any method that we use/

When you started questioning me felt like you refused/

Thought I was infected by a negative bafoon/

Devilish because our parenting was getting hella views/

Apparently the man you married to was really letting loose/

Embarrassing to reach a level that was deeper than a root/

People was confused when they saw you with a bruised/

Wouldn't talk to me they just wanted me to be abused/

I was locked up and facing 4 years minimal/

Called pops cause I knew/

daddy was a dope man too/

 

CHORUS:

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

He was doing what a dope man do/

Only moving how a dope man move/

Had a plan that he hoped came through/

Understanding it what most cain't do/

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/

He was doing what a dope man do/

Only moving how a dope man move/

Had a plan that he hoped came through/

Understanding it what most cain't do/

Daddy was a dope man too/

Daddy was a dope man too/
