Intro - DaBaby

The Experience: How the f-ck I make it to the top same day I lost the n-gga that had me? ...that's f-cked up... Facing happiness and sorrow and trying to cope with both at the same time...
The Vibe: Musing.
The Topic: Suffering and happiness.
The Value: Family.
The Tension: Same time I got the news (Death and sorrow) VS. My sh-t hit number one (Success and happiness).

Music video: DaBaby offers a montage of funerals and farewells. Of family mourning their losses and celebrating love and cherishing the future of their children. Of family on the move... together. It ends with a memorial to DaBaby's father John C. Kirk Jr.

The Meaning of IntroThey found him dead a couple days before I started tour... same time I got the news, my sh-t went number one, that's f-cked up. DaBaby starts his album KIRK with a soul-searching song about the contrast between his greatness and his smallness. Between his success - I got the number one record - and his fragility. The lesson Baby draws from that contrast runs deep. Underneath the success there is a man who cares deeply about his family. About their legacy: I spent a hundred thousand layin' my daddy to rest, but I ain't braggin'. About their values and upbringing: Put the kids in homeschool, let's go get us a mansion, n-gga let's raise our kids right, let's watch the sh-t we teach 'em, n-gga. About their future: Let's start a business for you so they can't say that you leechin', n-gga. That caring candor is rare. But when we see it, rap becomes something so much deeper: How I know I'm the chosen one, 'cause sometimes when I be speakin', n-gga like on this song, I ain't rappin', I'm preachin', n-gga.

Ask yourself: What's inside your heart where no one else can see it?

EP: KIRK - 2019

LYRICS:


Thinkin' 'bout my grandmama and sh-t
I got the number one record, they acknowledged the jit (Ayy, yo, Kid)
They goin' crazy when they play it, head bobbin' and sh-t
And I'm just somewhere f-cked up thinkin' 'bout my father and sh-t
They found him dead a couple days before I started tour
Same day I flew back to the city from Miami
I was out there with the family
Just lookin' at my daughter
Thinkin' to myself like, "D-mn, my baby look just like my daddy"

Same time I got the news, my sh-t went number one, that's f-cked up
That sh-t there was confusin', a lil' bit, you know I flew in with the stick
Okay, like let me know what's up before I lose it in this b-tch
And everybody tryna talk, I ain't tryna talk, I'm tryna click
I'm tryna send somebody wit' him
Somebody let me know what's happenin'
My last name K-I-R-K, Kirk
You know how I rock behind my daddy
You know I never gave a f-ck about the world, just about my family
How the f-ck I make it to the top same day I lost the n-gga that had me?
How a n-gga perform on BET and a year ago couldn't afford a sandwich?
I had to move in with TG when I went broke movin' out to Cali
What you know about smilin' every day for all your fans, actin' like you happy?
I spent a hundred thousand layin' my daddy to rest, but I ain't braggin'
I got some questions, I'm a die about respect if I don't get answers
My mama stood up in that chair, took it like a G when she had cancer
My brother be thinkin' that we don't love him and let him struggle like we ain't family
Like I won't give up all I got to see you happy, n-gga

We shocked the world, everybody know what's happenin', n-gga
I'm still Lil' Jon Jon, my song, it just went platinum, n-gga
We on our own time, let's go move out to Cali, n-gga
Put the kids in homeschool, let's go get us a mansion, n-gga
Let's raise our kids right, let's watch the sh-t we teach 'em, n-gga
Let's start a business for you so they can't say that you leechin', n-gga
How I know I'm the chosen one, 'cause sometimes when I be speakin', n-gga
Like on this song, I ain't rappin', I'm preachin', n-gga

If I love you, then I need ya (Let's go)
I f-ck with you like Martin f-ck with Gina (Uh)
We family like we Venus and Serena (Hey)
Let's go get married like we Thankgod and Kenisha (Okay)
Don't give a f-ck about the world, just 'bout my people (Facts)
I don't care what the f-ck they told you, we ain't equal (Uh-uh)
N-ggas ain't cut from the same cloth, these n-ggas see-through (Ayy)
And I be too busy doin' me to see what he do, n-gga

Yeah, verse two, that lil' n-gga from the other side (Uh-huh)
And I do it myself, whenever I ride, you know that my brothers ride (Okay)
And I still got a lotta sh-t on my mind that I can't undecide (Yeah, yeah)
Got me ready to slide, feelin' like Doughboy when his brother died (Boyz n the Hood)
You know how I step, you know how I rep, you know about Baby, n-gga (You know about Baby)
You know how I'm comin' back for that cross if you ever play me, n-gga (Get back)
You know how I got it up out the mud and turned it to gravy n-gga (Huh)
And hit the rap game like crack cocaine in the '80s, n-gga

F-ck you n-ggas talkin' 'bout, bruh? Like.. (Oh my God, oh)
Look (Oh my God)
Look, man
Look (Oh my God)
Baby on Baby, now that's Baby on Baby
God is great
Big dawg, Baby
He goin' Baby on Baby on Baby, huh
Yeah, rest in peace to my daddy
Rest in peace to my grandma
Let's go

If I love you, then I need ya (Let's go)
I f-ck with you like Martin f-ck with Gina (Uh)
We family like we Venus and Serena (Hey)
Let's go get married like we Thankgod and Kenisha (Okay)
Don't give a f-ck about the world, just 'bout my people (Facts)
I don't care what the f-ck they told you, we ain't equal (Uh-uh)
N-ggas ain't cut from the same cloth, these n-ggas see-through (Ayy)
And I be too busy doin' me to see what he do, n-gga

Uh-huh
Okay, yeah
Uh-huh
Okay
