Where you from nigga?

"What is going on in Compton? I don't understand it."
"Well, as it relates to this, this is not in my field as the clerk.
 So anything that relates to this,
 you'd probably have to get an answer from, Dr. Dre."

[Dr. Dre]
I hear you talkin 'bout respect, I gave you niggaz the utmost (the utmost)
All you niggaz the utmost (the utmost)
Would you look over Picasso's shoulder and tell him 'bout his brush strokes?
Them opinions, I don't trust those
I apologize, the city made a nigga so cut-throat
Every hood love me but it started on one coast
Could've stopped in '86 but I knew that you would want mo'
I'm on a throne in a place some niggaz won't go

[Chorus: Dr. Dre] + (Justus)
Don't get it fucked up~!
(Been away from home - been away from home)
(In L.A. been gone that long)
(All they wanna know is, where you from? Where you from?)
Where you from nigga, huh? COMPTON!

[Dr. Dre]
Psst, this is about where I'm from
I think it's time to take these niggaz to the deep water
Yeah, down in the Pacific (the Pacific, the Pacific)
Where them sharks at nigga, down in the deep water
Listen, listen, listen, all you niggaz swimmin in the info
Go fuck around and drown in the specifics
Always goin overboard, used to be my kinfolk
Now you're sleepin with the muh'fuckin fishes
(What the bid'ness? With the muh'fuckin fishes, what the bid'ness?)
These niggaz won't let up until they all wet up
Don't get fucked up!
Naw nigga, now everybody wanna visit
Tryna re-up that prescription (that prescription)
Yup, yeah, re-up! Cause my nigga
Water colors couldn't even paint the picture
They don't get the picture, fuck 'em (yeah, fuck 'em)
Yeah, drugs by the dozen (what?)
You might just wanna go and check the children
(You might just wanna check your fuckin children)
Yeah~! I'm the one that got they ear
For many years I've been makin parents live in fear
I just wanna make it clear
My influence run deep like the ocean


[Anderson .Paak]
Feels like you're drowning, don't ya?
About a hundred miles down in that ocean
(About a hundred miles down in that)
It's over (it's over)
Shoulda never jumped in if you can't swim
(Can't swim, if you can't swim)
Oh my God, where's a lifeguard when you need one?

[Kendrick Lamar]
Motherfucker know I started from the bottom, vodka baby bottle
Mixin up with Similac, my momma knew I had a problem
Wasn't thinkin 'bout no rappin, I was jookin for a dollar
Puttin quarter pieces in the black Caprice and make it holla (holla)
No releasin me, I got the beast in me, I got to (holla)
Keep the decency and makin T-N-T my product
I'm a C-O-M-P-T-O-innovator, energizer
Inner-city bullet fly 'til that bitch on auto-pilot
I don't give a fuck about your whereabout
All I care about is wearin out your area and airin out
your upper body when I catch ya walkin out your parents' house
(Don't get fucked up) Homie got fucked up
tryna park his tour bus not knowin what's what
or who's who, livin in the L.A. county zoo
Pick 'em off like a big dog, motherfucker, WOOF!
Once upon a time, I shot a nigga on accident (boom boom boom!)
I tried to kill him but I guess I needed more practicin (boom boom boom!)
That's when I realized bangin wasn't for e'rybody
Switch it up before my enemy or the sheriff got me
They liable to bury him, they nominated six to carry him
They worry him to death but he no vegetarian
The beef is on his breath, inheritin the drama better than
a great white, nigga this is life in my AQUARIUM!


[Marsha Ambrosius]
This is about where I'm from
I think it's time to take these niggaz to the deep water
Yeah, down in the Pacific
Where them sharks at, nigga down in the deep water

[Outro: Anderson .Paak]
{*gasps for air*} Help me!
(Feels like you're drowning, drowning)
Ah! {*gasps for air*}
(Down in that)
{*gasps for air*} Help me, help me!
Help me, somebody help me
(Shoulda never jumped in if you can't, if you can't swim)
Help me {*gasps for air*}
Help me, help me, help me, help me!
I can't, I can't breathe, I can't breathe!
I can't breathe, help
(Where's a lifeguard when you need one?)
God, please, please help, please {*drowning*}
Please help me! {*drowning*}
Please help! Please help!
Please... please...
