K-Dot Songs

10.  “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”

Album: Good Kid, M.A.A.D City 2012

Classic Line: 

We live in a world, we live in a world on two different axles
You live in a world, you livin’ behind the mirror
I know what you scared of
The feeling of feeling emotions inferior
This shit is vital, I know you had to

9. “DNA”

Album: DAMN 2017

Classic Line: 

I was born like this, since one like this, immaculate conception
I transform like this, perform like this, was Yeshua’s new weapon
I don’t contemplate, I meditate, then off your fucking head
This that put-the-kids-to-bed, this that

8. “A.D.H.D.”

Album: Section.80 2011

Classic Line: 

I’m in the house party trippin’ off
My generation sippin’ cough syrup like its water
Never no pancakes in the kitchen
Man, no wonder our lives is caught up in the daily superstition
That the world is ’bout to end who gives a fuck? We never do listen
Unless it comes with an 808, a melody and some hoes
Playstation and some drank, technology bumping soul

7. “Swimming Pools (Drank)”

Album: Good Kid, M.A.A.D City 2012

Classic Line: 

Okay, now open your mind up and listen to me, Kendrick
I’m your conscience, if you do not hear me then you will be history, Kendrick
I know that you’re nauseous right now and I’m hopin’ to lead you to victory, Kendrick
If I take another one down I’mma drown in some poison abusin’ my limit

6. “King Kunta”

Album: To Pimp a Butterfly 2015

Classic Line: 

I can dig rapping, but a rapper with a ghost writer?
What the fuck happened? (Oh no) I swore I wouldn’t tell
But most of y’all share bars, like you got the bottom bunk in a two man cell
(A two man cell)
Something’s in the water (Something’s in the water)
And if I got a brown nose for some gold then I’d rather be a bum than a motherfuckin’ baller

5. “The Recipe (ft Dr. Dre)”

Album: Good Kid, M.A.A.D City 2012

Classic Line: 

Pretty bitches and tire marks, let ’em inhale them pipe exhausts
Let ’em reveal how much it cost for this life controlling my vice
No way hell no, uh uh, if I’m wrong I don’t wanna be right
You want to be one, to peak on the chart
So the peons can be gone and pee on their hearts
Women, weed, weather, it’s not my fault
That it’s 82 degrees and my top peeled off

4. “Poetic Justice (Ft Drake)”

Album: Good Kid, M.A.A.D City 2012

Classic Line: 

She wanna go and party, she wanna go and party
Nigga don’t approach her with that Atari
Nigga that ain’t good game, homie, sorry
They say conversation, rule a nation, I can tell
But I could never right my wrongs
‘less I write it down for real, P.S

3. “i”

Album: To Pimp a Butterfly 2015

Classic Line: 

Peace to fashion police I wear my heart
On my sleeve let the runway start
You know the miserable do love company
Fuck do you want from me and my scars?
Everybody lack confidence, everybody lack confidence
How many times our potential was anonymous?
How many times the city making me promises?
So I promise this

2. “All the Stars (ft SZA)”

Album: Black Panther: The Album

Classic Line: 

Fuck you and all your expectations
I don’t even want your congratulations
I recognize your false confidence and calculated promises all in your conversation
I hate people that feel entitled
Look at me crazy ’cause I ain’t invite you
Oh, you important?
You the moral to the story, you endorsing?
Motherfucker, I don’t even like you

1. “Humble”

Album: DAMN 2017

Classic Line: 

A.M. to the P.M., P.M. to the A.M., funk
Piss out your per diem, you just gotta hate ’em, funk
If I quit your BM, I still ride Mercedes, funk
If I quit this season, I still be the greatest, funk
My left stroke just went viral
Right stroke put lil’ baby in a spiral
Soprano C, we like to keep it on a high note
Its levels to it, you and I know, bitch, be humble

K-Dot Guest Verses

10. Mac Miller – “Fight the Feeling”

Album: Macadelic 2012

Classic Line: 

Sometimes I wake up, up in the morning, make up
Wipe the smudge of makeup off my bed
Soon as she’s gone and take up
Hours out my day just to find power shit to say
But you won’t hear it
Even if your ears was pierced with Beats by Dre

9. 50 Cent – “We Up”

Album: We Up 2013

Classic Line: 

I’m on Instagram looking at your favorite singer
Debating on should I fuck her or jump on her single
20 thou, she got a hell of a adlib
I’m in her mouth like I knew I could have kids, K-Dot

8. Ab-Soul – “Turn Me Up”

Album: Long Term 1 & 2

Classic Line: 

Imagine if I smoke, I probably come up with a quote
So heavy you’ll forget every album you heard from Hova
Or 2pacalypse I’m Hub City’s novelist
Come and get your scholarship, I’m taking kids to school
A pool full of spit, dive in, I’m ’bout to drool
You’ll drown trynna backstroke on concepts that I wrote
I was a black sheep, but now I’m just a goat
And I’m ’bout to elope, married to the game joe

7. Taylor Swift – “Bad Blood”

Album: 1989 2015

Classic Line: 

I don’t hate you, but I hate to critique, overrate you
These beats of a dark heart, use basslines to replace you
Take time and erase you, love don’t hear no more
No, I don’t fear no more
Better yet, respect ain’t quite sincere no more

6. ScHoolboy Q – “Collard Greens”

Album: Oxymoron 2014

Classic Line: 

Nights like this I’mma knight like this
Sword in my hand, I fight like this
I am more than a man, I’m a God
Bitch, touche, en garde

5. Lil Wayne – “Mona Lisa”

Album: Tha Carter V 2018

Classic Line: 

When she asked him, did he want to make love in a yellow taxi
Never gave two fuck, jumped in the backseat
Woke up in the morning to The Great Gatsby
Then he dogged it again like the bitch Lassie
I’ma a dog in the wind, I’m a pit laughing
I’ma call up again like I did last week
Make good with the friend and I’m all jazzy
Britney with the twin and the girl Ashley
Found out that I fucked, he was unhappy
Bitch, I never let the bullshit get past me
Better yet, I wanna break up, don’t you ask me
‘Bout no motherfucking double standard, acting

4. Big Sean – “Control”

Album: Control 2013

Classic Line: 

I’m dressed in all black, this is not for the fan of Elvis
I’m aimin’ straight for your pelvis
You can’t stomach me? You plan on stumpin’ me?
Bitch, I’ve been jumped before you put a gun on me
Bitch, I put one on yours, I’m Sean Connery
James Bonding with none of you niggas
Climbin’ 100 mil in front of me

3. A$AP Rocky – “Fuckin’ Problems”

Album: Long. Live. ASAP 2013

Classic Line: 

Uh yeah ho this the finale
My pep talk turn into a pep rally
Say she’s from the hood but she live inside in the valley now
Vacate in Atlanta, then she going back to Cali mm
Got your girl on my line, world on my line
The irony I fuck ’em at the same damn time

2. Pusha T – “Nosetalgia”

Album: My Name Is My Name 2013

Classic Line: 

Quantum physics could never show you the world I was in
When I was ten
Back when nine ounces have got you ten
And nine times out of ten niggas don’t pay attention
And when there’s tension in the air nines come with extensions
My daddy dumped a quarter piece to a four and a half
Took a L, started selling soap fiends bubble bath
Broke his nails misusing his pinky to treat his nose
Shirt buttoned open, taco meat land on his gold

1. Tech N9ne – “Fragile

Album: Something Else 2013

Classic Line: 

Tell me that I’m famous
Tell me that my name is
Big as Venus Jupiter and then Uranus
Tell me that your anus got your head in it
I can smell the articles and know you’re heinous
Tell me that you love me, always thinkin’ of me
Unconditional, I’m hoping I’m your favourite
Grab a fishing pole and throw me with the sharks
That’s the feelin’ I get when you’re concentratin’
On this pen, on this pad
Tell me you’re willin’ to diss on my craft
Tell me the feelin’ of pickin’ apart this track
Stop
Puttin’ my heart and my soul in these lines
Tellin’ me platinum and gold all the time
Lookin’ to bury, a deep hole for mine
Drop
This is more than you, and this is more than you
And your entire building slanderin’ and abusin’
What I call the realest comin’ from a student
Told myself to use a poem as an UZI
Empty magazine, I seen a magazine
You seen my trigger finger, then I started shootin’
That was nicotine, I’m ’bout to smoke ’em all
And journalists involved should’ve known my music
