A Tale of 2 Bloodz (After J. Cole)

by Julian Randall

Verse 1 (The Black Comes Out)
Since a youngin’ always dreamed of being one thing
I’m a half breed my nigga
I am something that rhymes with nothing
But everything ends in nigga
Used to want a shiny chain and some Timbs
Body too small for all this blood my nigga
Give me a definition give me a name that fits
I’m a flood my nigga
Call me a song with too many samples
Like all things about my body
You half-right get it?

Last night I had a bad dream
That I was trapped in this body
And I asked is that really such a bad thing?

Bridge (The Half Breed Song)
I know that everything that glitters ain’t gold
I know why you look right at me when you say that
Everybody wonders what the sun looks like up close

sorry to disappoint

I’m just a collage of red A scarlet marriage A map after it drowns

Last night I was a bad dream
I was trapped in this body
And I asked is that really such a bad thing?

Verse 2 (El Latino Dice)
Oye nos vamos finalmente
My Spanish is a drought
Crack open my tongue
There is music in the dust tambien
Pues este chico baila como no tiene un abuela
And that’s the key my nigga
Atras de Washington Heights
Quien te enseña cuantos nombres
te robaron de su sangre?

Outro (A Repentance)
Padre perdoname I’ve just gone astray
I renounced the blood until it was undeniable
I google translate my own skin
I push my own name overboard
perdoname perdoname perdoname
