    N.F.L. [My People Remix]

    [Intro]
    (What are you trying to accomplish? What would you like this to be the endgame for you?)
    A little space please. Um, I mean, ultimately it's to bring awareness and make people, you know, realize what's really going on in this country. There are a lot of things that are going on that are unjust, people aren't being held accountable for, and that's something that needs to change. That's something that, you know, this country stands for freedom, liberty, justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now


    [Verse 1]
    Born into this world a free agent
    Single mother, nineteen-year-old, forsakŠµn (No)
    By my daddy, a man with no patience (Nah)
    Traded for adoption towards my grŠµatness (Yeah)
    Picked up by a white team, little privilege (Yes)
    I was still a Black boy with Black boy visions
    Sports was natural, defensive end, punter position
    In my mind I'm wondering if my dad did this
    I pushed through to become the true me
    4.0 GPA, basketball, MVP
    Got recruiters wanting pieces of me
    Pieces of they team
    A free agent, barely nineteen
    Headed to Nevada to further pursue my dream (Dreams)
    Quarterback, even earned a degree
    Learned more about me (About me)
    And the ones before me
    The shame and the glory
    Some American dreams are a horror story (My skin is black)

    [Chorus]
    My skin is black
    But they just see N.F.L. (N.F.L.)
    They just see N.F.L. (N.F.L.)
    They just see N.F.L. (N.F.L.)
    My skin is Black
    But they just see N.F.L
    They just see N.F.L. (They just see, yeah)
    They just see N.F.L. (Oh, why, why, why)

    [Verse 2]
    Fast forward to 2011
    NFL debut, October 2nd
    New lessons of what it's like to work for an owner
    Navigating through the field, no longer the corners
    Mansions and endorsements (Uh)
    Meals and great courses (Yep)
    Adopted to a system of corporates and sportsmen
    Meanwhile from Ferguson to Portsmouth
    Cops are killing in great proportions
    It was never my intention (Nah)
    To draw self-attention (Nah)
    But draw more attention to the murders aforementioned (Yes)
    I never flaunted no hoes
    Never stabbed a person at the Super Bowl
    Or knocked my lady out cold (Nah)
    Never got busted for trees
    Never took money under the table for greed
    But somehow I'm now the villain of the league
    'Cause I took a knee for victims who look like you and me

    [Chorus]
    My skin is black
    But they just see N.F.L. (They just see)
    They just see N.F.L
    They just see N.F.L. (But my skin)
    My skin is black
    But they just see N.F.L. (N.F.L., N.F.L.)
    They just see N.F.L
    They just see N.F.L. (Oh, why, why, when I walk off the field)
    My skin is black
    But they just see N.F.L. (Skin is black)
    They just see N.F.L. (Ain't it right you could be me? No)
    They just see N.F.L. (My skin is black, when the policeman pull me over)
    My skin is black
    But they just see N.F.L. (My skin is black)
    They just see N.F.L. (Oh, they just see N.F.L.)
    They just see N.F.L. (Oh, and it's plain to see)

    [Bridge]
    I better believe when they see me (Only see)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see my skin)
    They just see a nigga for life (Oh, ho)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see my skin)
    I better believe when they see me (Oh, oh, oh)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see a nigga for life)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see a nigga for life)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see my skin)
    I better believe when they see me (Only see)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see my skin)
    They just see a nigga for life (Oh, ho)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see my skin)
    I better believe when they see me (Oh, oh, oh)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see a nigga for life)
    They just see a nigga for life (They just see a nigga for life)
    They just see a nigga for life (Hey-ey, N.F.L.)

    [Outro]
    Uh
    Hey (N.F.L.)
    Hey, N.F.L. (N.F.L.)
    Oh, why
    Why, why, why
    Oh, N.F.L
