Song lyrics:

[Hook: Quavo]
Black man, drop top
There go the cops
There go the cops
There go the cops
Is it because of my people?
Is it because of my sneakers?
Is it because of my jersey?
It is because that Im perfect?

[Verse 1: Quavo]
Ridin down 85, three in the morning
Why you pull me over sayin you smell marijuana? (Smellin the gas)
I said I got a ID, I got glaucoma (I got ID)
He said, We aint in Cali n***a, get out, put your hands up
Runnin real hard shook the taser (shook the taser)
Runnin real hard shook the taser (shook the taser)
I told him can we split it, we gon shake em
n***a hit my phone when you made it (brrp)
Out of here, PJ to Jamaica
Naw I aint tell ya wrong, get the paper
Been fightin too long against haters
My attitude, yeah Im going for the shaders

[Verse 2: Rara]
Live from the cracks of the concrete
12 try to take a n***a off the street
Make the gun sound now for Mike Brown
Take a n***a life when you face down
Hoodie gang strong like Trayvon
Gun by the window like Detroit Red
Bring that sh** by the neck of my woods
And bet a n***a a** end up dead
Pig in a blanket, f** was you thinkin?
Free that n***a Boosie, runnin at the police
Left him with a slow leak, right outside VC
Tryna keep a Phantom like DC
Hangout the G like free Meek
k** a n***a reachin for a cell phone
Hurt to tell his mama he aint comin home
Thats why I stay strapped all summer long
And you know it

[Hook: Quavo]
Black man, drop top
There go the cops
There go the cops
There go the cops
Is it because of my people?
Is it because of my sneakers?
Is it because of my jersey?
It is because that you nervous? (damn)

[Verse 3: Meek Mill]
Black man
Running from the law like Pac-Man
Try and throw the raw all in the trash can
Got smoked by a cop on the dash cam
Mug shot on the news, he a mad man
When all he did was hustle to run the cash in
He feedin kids in jail if he wasnt crackin
Too many felonies on my jacket
All of my brothers turn to a**a**ins
We seen too many brothers get put in caskets
Too many young baby mothers and baby daddies
In the graveyard back then
I went from sittin on clubs to the cashmere
You shoulda seen how I flossed on em last year
Two Maybachs and I had a bad year


Young n***a countin money like a cashier
White man wanna pay me like Im U-N-O
n***as wanna see me at my funeral
Neither of my own homie wanna do me though
Layin on my dog crib like Im Snoopy though
Thats my n***a, I aint even wanna do it though
If I dont do it, sh** I know he gon do me though
Cause he broke and he trippin bout stupid hoes
But Imma die just like motherf**in Julio
Black man

[Hook: Quavo]
Black man, drop top
There go the cops
There go the cops
There go the cops
Is it because of my people?
Is it because of my sneakers?
Is it because of my jersey?
It is because that Im perfect?

[Verse 4: T.I.]
Police see I got my hands up
Still wanna k** me, they dont understand us
They be lookin for a reason just to shoot me
And wanna do me how they do us in the movies
Or how they do it out in Baton Rouge
Or Ferguson, or Florida, or Baltimore, they make excuses
Like I did cause I thought he had a pistol
Or I did it cause I thought he was a m**m
My message to America, felon or d**h here
The liquor we die, we just substances left here
First you put us in a small hood
And then you beat us and you treat us like its all good
And then shoot us and you screw us economically, mentally
k**in n***a, no penalty, they can do that sh** legally
Bet I can make that a** think fore you shoot
You k** me, man there gon be more of some riotin and lootin
We say black lives matter, you say all lives
But yall aint the ones gettin hogtied
Persecuted, executed, one day it gon be time for retribution
Hope you dont ever see your son in an institution
I know karma is constant and God aint no nonsense
You doin wrong just to run sh**
One day the time gon run out for the dumb sh**
Aint no deception, tryna get in Heaven
You gettin nailed, bet its on your Mary
And you know what you did for who how much you really care
And what you really felt, he gon deny the opportunity to unify
With people who look similar to you and I
Cause he dont wanna have a

[Hook: Quavo]
Black man, drop top
There go the cops
There go the cops
There go the cops
Is it because of my people?
Is it because of my sneakers?
Is it because of my jersey?
It is because that Im perfect?
Black man, drop top
There go the cops
There go the cops
There go the cops
Is it because of my people?
Is it because of my sneakers?
Is it because of my jersey?
It is because that Im perfect?
