    All My Life – Lil Durk, J.Cole

    Durkio told me he been on some positive shit, yeah, yeah
    Lately, I just wanna show up and body some shit, yeah, yeah
    Always been a lil’ mathematician, lately it’s cash I’m gettin’
    Got me losin’ count of these bags, I’ve been movin’ too fast
    Hard times don’t last, ‘member when cops harrassed
    Talkin’ out my ass, boy, you ain’t shit but a bitch with a badge

    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down)
    All this time (all this time)
    Never thought I would make it out (never thought I’d make it out)
    They couldn’t break me, they couldn’t break me (no, no)
    They couldn’t take me, they couldn’t take me (no)
    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down)

    I decided I had to finish, but the media called me a menace
    I done sat with the mayor and politicians, I’m tryna change the image
    You can’t blame my past no more, I come from the trenches
    Some said I’d never be a superstar, but I know I’m different (no, no, no)
    I’m The Voice, but the system ain’t give me a choice
    Know some people that’s still on deploy
    I know a felon who tryna get FOID
    Child support your only support
    For a visit, I’m goin’ through courts
    Went to jail, they was chainin’ me up
    And you know that I’m famous as fuck
    See how you gon’ joke about stimulus?
    But they really had came in the clutch
    I know some kids wanna hurt they self
    Stop tryna take drugs, I refer to myself
    Tryna better myself, tryna better my health but

    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down)
    All this time (all this time)
    Never thought I would make it out (never thought I’d make it out)
    They couldn’t break me, they couldn’t break me (no, no)
    They couldn’t take me, they couldn’t take me (no)
    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down) (yeah)

    First generation ghetto nigga
    Cole world, hello niggas
    Made it out the city with my head on straight
    Niggas keep shootin’ up the lead out
    Young Jordan Peele, gotta get out
    ‘Cause the shit that I spit out
    Is a cheat code like I’m facin’ a RICO, how a nigga put a hit out
    And another one, and, and another one
    I got like a hundred of ’em
    ‘Bout to lap niggas so they think they ahead of me, but I’m really in front of them
    Now some of them fumblin’ they bags
    Fuckin’ up the little crumbs that they had
    A reminder to humble yourself, this shit could be gone in an instant
    Me, I’m runnin’ long distance
    All pistons firin’
    I be stuck between maybe retirin’
    And feelin’ like I’m just not hittin’ my prime
    These days scene rappers be dyin’
    Way before they even gettin’ they shine
    I never even heard of lil’ buddy
    ‘Til somebody murdered lil’ buddy
    Now I’m on the phone, searchin’ lil’ buddy name
    Got to playin’ his tunes, all day in my room
    Thinkin’, “Damn, this shit wicked, to get they names buzzin’
    Some niggas just gotta go lay in a tomb”
    And media thirsty for clicks, I got a new rule
    If you ain’t never posted a rapper when he was alive
    You can’t post about him after he get hit
    It’s simple, it’s the principle
    On any tempo, I’m invincible
    Don’t even rap, I just vent to you
    I rather that than an interview
    Most days
    Fuck ’em all like I’m goin’ through a ho phase
    Young nigga shoot out the whip like road rage
    I pray all of my dawgs stay so paid
    And the only thing that kill ’em is old age

    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down)
    All this time (all this time)
    Never thought I would make it out (never thought I’d make it out)
    They couldn’t break me, they couldn’t break me (no, no)
    They couldn’t take me, they couldn’t take me (no)
    All my life (all my life)
    They been tryin’ to keep me down (they been tryin’ to keep me down)

    In case you missed it
