MILZERU – Not gonna be no more kings

Be careful of any man who claims so

Because deep down

He clings to the need for power

But in reality he's a coward.

He's afraid of death

And sometimes ... me too

 

J. Cole merilis lagu terbarunya berjudul Fire Squad. Lagu ini sengaja dirilis untuk merayakan ulang tahun Forest Hills Drive 2014. Video musik untuk lagu tersebut telah diunggah di kanal YouTube J. Cole dan telh ditonton 1.110.271 kali sejak perilisannya pada 10 Desember 2020.

Video musik tersebut menampilkan seorang gadis muda dan lelaki tua yang sedang bermain catur. Gadis muda memberitahu bahwa di dunia ini takkan ada raja lagi, kenyataanya, mereka yang menyebut dirinya raja hanyalah orang yang haus kekuasaan tetapi pengecut dan takut mati.

Namun, dalam lagunya, J. Cole membantah ide tersebut. Dia menyatakan bahwa dirinya dan semua orang memakai mahkota. 

Who's the king?

We all kings

(We all kings nigga)

Kings of ourselves first and foremost

Wah, menarik sekali lagu yang satu ini. Di bawah ini terdapat lirik lengkap untuk lagu Fire Squad kalau-kalau kalian mau menghafal lagunya.

Nigga why you actin' like a ho?

Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go

Tell me girl why you be stressin me for time

When you tell me you love me, can't you see im tryna climb

Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch

If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?

Come here baby why you always insecure?

Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

Ain't a way around it no more, I am the greatest

A lotta niggas sat on the thrown, I am the latest

I am the bravest, go toe to toe with the giants

I ain't afraid of you niggas, I'll end up fading you niggas

'Fore it's all said and done, this nigga need medicine

My uzi it weighed a ton, I need me a better gun

In fact I just might need two, cuz niggas say they the one

And I got something to prove

Forgive me lord here they come, BLAOW

Nigga why you actin' like a ho?

Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go

Tell me girl why you be stressin me for time

When you tell me you love me, can't you see im tryna climb

Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch

If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?

Come here baby why you always insecure?

Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

My inhibitions, fighting my intuition

Premature premonition

Showin me the demolition of these phony niggas

So ahead of my time

Even when I rhyme about the future I be reminiscing

You want the truth well come and listen

Im like that time you bagged a dime

And checked ya phone and saw it was a number missing

As fate passes you by half of you try

The other half of you fry, too high to actually fly

One day yall have to decide, who you gon be

A scary nigga or a nigga thats gon' rule like me

Keep it true like me, Cole you might be

Like the new Ice Cube, meets the new Ice-T

Meets 2 Live Crew, meets the new Spike Lee

Meets Bruce like Wayne, meets Bruce like Lee

Meets '02 Lil Wayne, in a new white tee

Meets KD, ain't no nigga that can shoot like me! BLAOW

Nigga why you actin' like a ho?

Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go

Tell me girl why you be stressin' me for time

When you tell me you love me, can't you see I'm tryna climb

Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch

If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?

Come here baby why you always insecure?

Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

Came from the bottom nigga, with stains on my shirt

What you expected from me, I came from the dirt

(Who's the king?)

Money my motivator, the songs that I sing

Picture a peasant passin' from pawn to a King

You tell me ya still love me, if so then let me go

Will I return or will I burn, never know

Look in my eyes and see the future

But don't sugar coat it

History repeats itself and thats just how it goes

Same way that these rappers always bite each others flows

Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with Rock n Roll

Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore

While silly niggas argue over who gone snatch the crown

Look around my nigga white people have snatched the sound

This year I'll prolly go to the awards dappered down

Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile

I'm just playin', but all good jokes contain true shit

Same rope you climb up on, they'll hang you with

But not Jermaine, my aim too sick

I bang nigga, I came to bring the pain my brain too quick

You see how I maneuver this game, I ain't stupid

I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid

And break the chains and change minds, one verse at a time

And claim that you sick, and fuck it if the truth is

Who's the king?

We all kings

(We all kings nigga)

Kings of ourselves first and foremost

(True)

While the people debate who's the king of this rap game

Here comes lil' ol' Jermaine

With every ounce of strength in his veins

To snatch the crown from whoever y'all think has it

But rather than place it on his head as soon as he grabs it

Poof, boom, paow, it's like magic

With a flash and a BANG the crown disintegrates

And falls from the Earth from which it came

It's done

Ain't gonna be no more kings

Be wary of any man that claims

Because deep down he claims onto the need for power

But reality he's a coward

Ultimately he's scared to die

And sometimes so am I

But when I'm in tune with the most high

I realize

The fear lies in my lack of awareness of the other side

Today I know that we are the same

Are the same, you and I

Different kind of skin, different set of eyes

Two different minds, but only one God

(It's only one God nigga)

It's for all the kings

Because deep down, every poet just wants love
