Tunnel Vision - Kodak Black




The Experience: Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision... winnin'... You want to win but at what cost?


Music video: An ambivalent look at stereotyped bigotry: African Americans burn Ku Klux Clan members on crosses and an AK-47 toting skinhead attempts to gun down his African American neighbor. They end up trying to strangle each other, with the skinhead getting the worst of it. Until a little girl yells at them to stop the violence.

The Meaning of Tunnel Vision: Kodak Black is a man with a mission: money - millions - power - thug to the bone - and sex - any girl I want. But the sound of Tunnel Vision is sad, so sad that not even the drugged slur of the words can take the edge off the sadness. If this is the dream, where is the happiness? The music video adds commentary to the "success story": if success means a world where it's us or them, it's not worth it.

Ask yourself: If you achieve all your goals and your dreams come true, will that leave you happy? Or empty?

LYRICS:

And Lil Metro on that beat

Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
They sendin' all my homies on a mission
And I ain't tryna miss out on these millions

I jumped out of that Wraith, Kodak bought a Wraith
I get any girl I want, any girl I want
She want me to save the day, but I ain't got a cape
She wanna see me everyday, she wanna be my bae
That money make me cum. It made me fornicate
Uh, I'm the sh-t, I need some toilet paper
Follow my player rules then we gon' be okay
On the real, I need a bih' who gon' cooperate

Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
They sendin' all my homies on a mission
And I ain't tryna miss out on these millions

I told you niggas, I'm gon' be that f-ckin' nigga
Everything be good 'til you doin' better than 'em
They wanna see a nigga shot or see me in the system
All you niggas out here poison like snake venom
Codeine in my liver, rockin' Balenciaga denim
I'm booted even when I'm sober, I don't need a jigga
They sendin' all my niggas on a f-ckin' journey
I told that baby to come over 'cause I'm f-cking horny
My mama told me kill these niggas, "Son, keep it going."
I'm thug to the bone, but I'm still her baby boy
Lil Kodak, boy, they hate to see you in a foreign
They miss when you was in that 'Yota kickin' door

Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
Lil Kodak, they don't like to see you winnin'
They wanna see you in a penitentiary
I need me a lil' baby who gon' listen
Girl, I don't wanna be the one you iggin'
My mama told me, "Boy make a decision."
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
They sendin' all my homies on a mission
And I ain't tryna miss out on these millions
