[Kendrick Lamar]
Now everybody serenade the new faith of Kendrick Lamar
This is King Kendrick Lamar: King Kendrick and I meant it
My point intended is raw; fix your lenses forensics 
would've told you Kendrick had killed it; pretend it's a massacre 
and the masses upon us; and I mastered being the master 
at dodging your honor, and the chapter that read at 25 
I would live dormant like five in the morning
They raid your spot while Kendrick's performing and if they take everything, know I got

[Chorus: male singer]
Compton, Compton
Ain't no city quite like mi-iiine...

(Ay, Dre what's happening wit' it, my nigga)

[Dr. Dre]
Still I'm at it, peel the plastic off it, you can feel the magic
Still I'm laughing at the critics talking, I can see 'em gagging
When I'm back in the back of my city, back in the 'bach
With a batch of them banging Dre Beats with me, look where I'm at
It's the murder cap' and I'm captain at birthing this gangsta rap
It's a wrap when I'm done and I come a long way from a hundred dollars a month
To a hundred mil' in a day, bitch I'm from

[Chorus]

[Kendrick Lamar]
So come and visit 
the tire screeching, ambulance, policeman: won't you spend a weekend 
on Rosecrans, nigga; Khaki creasing, crime increasing 
on Rosecrans, nigga; Kendrick Conan nigga
Where you sword at, hand on the cross and swore that
I do it big as Rasputia for them shooters, Kama Sutra scream 
fuck your position and make you hold that
I'm trying to stay grounded like four flats but I know flats and Piru Crip tats

[male singer]
Will swarm on me like a beehive, hop in the G ride
From the West to the East side, know that's just how Compton rooooll..

[Dr. Dre]
And that's a given
I pass the blunt then pass the torch of course that's my decision
I crash the Porsche then you report that you see me in Benzes
I must report that we import the narcotics you bought it

[Kendrick Lamar]
Then talked about it when crack hit the speakers, the music business
I blow up every time we throw up a record
Depending on what you expecting, I'm sure it's bigger than your religion
Perfected by niggas that manifested music to live in

[Chorus]

[Dr. Dre]
So tell that gangster throw his set high
Roll it up in a blunt, I'mma take you on the next high
I did exactly what I wanted that's what made them checks fly
In my direction, you never questioned when I said I
Would be a mogul before I visit 2Pac and Left-eye
Eazy and Aaliyah when I see you we gon' test drive
A Lambo in heaven but for now I'm on the redeye
Flying back to my city cuz I'll forever standby

[Chorus]

[Kendrick Lamar]
Now we can all celebrate
We can all harvest the rap artists of NWA
America target our rap market, it's controversy and hate
Harsh realities we in made our music translate
To the coke dealers, the hood rich, and the broke niggas that play
With them gorillas that know killers that know where you stay
Roll that kush, crack that case, ten bottles of rosť
This was brought to you by Dre, now every motherfucker in here say

[male singer]
"Look who's responsible 
for taking Compton international
I make 'em holla, oooooohhh...

[Outro: Kendrick] + (Autotune vocals)
Ayo Just Blaze, good looking homie
{Just Blaze~!}
(Ain't no city quite like mine, yeah)
(In the city of Compton.. ain't no city quite like mine)

[Skit]
Momma, I finna use the van real quick!
Be back in 15 minutes!
