Lyrics for Black 2 by Buddy:

Intro
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, yup
Sound 'bout right
No, nope, that sounds, that sound 'bout right
Uh-huh, yeah
No, you ain't, you ain't never telled a lie
You ain't told a lie
Yeah, uh

Verse 1
Everybody wanna be an athlete (Athlete)
Everybody wanna rap on beats (Rap on beats)
Everybody wanna eat watermelon and fried chicken (Yeah, yeah)
But, sorry, it's a black thing (It's a black thing)
Everybody wanna hit after me (After me)
Watch your back 'cause they after me (After me)
Got different women up in my living room tryna measure my dick
Maybe it's a black thing (It's a black thing)
Don't sub-tweet, at me (At me)
We was kickin' freestyles in the backseat (Backseat)
We was ditchin' classrooms, thinkin' gladly (Gladly)
We would buy and sell drugs in the alley, yeah
Finally got a pot I can piss in
Workin' overtime, and you can tell if you listened
I don't wanna find no diviner division
I be gettin' high, nigga, it's a black thing (It's a black thing), yeah
Back shots 'til she knock me (Knock me)
I be on new shit, so they copy, the debauchery
Go ahead then, watch me, nigga
Don't watch TV (Don't watch TV)
You can get it all on CD (CD)
Vinyl is homicidal, every time you at my recital
I will serve you like appetizers
You should know, nigga, I'm your idol, I'm your idol now

Chorus
Grew up in the west bumpin' Dogg Pound and Jigga
Everybody wanna be black, don't nobody wanna be a nigga, uh
Feel like Malcolm X, peekin' outside my window
Everybody wanna be black, but don't nobody wanna be a nigga, uh

Verse 2
Everybody tryna get dreads and shit (Dreads and shit)
But they ain't African (African)
All the light girls gettin' a tan so they can darken they skin
I'm sorry, it's a black thing (It's a black thing)
I don't give a fuck, yeah, I said the shit (Said the shit)
Peep the rhetoric (Rhetoric)
Everybody wanna design somethin' for Louis Vuitton
But, baby, it's a black thing (It's a black thing)
Blacked out in the backseat of the black Jeep
Listening to "Black" by me (By me)
Or you can catch me at Taste of Soul
Eating on gumbo with the black-eyed peas, yeah
Black on black on black, nigga
I'm back on, back on track
My shit black-owned
If you ain't a nigga, then you can't say "nigga"
It's a black thing (It's a black thing), yeah
Spike Lee, Do the Right Thing (Right thing), uh
Don't step on my Nikes, just got these
Go rogue for the neckpiece, nigga
Yup, in my white tee (Yup)
Know you wanna be just like me, huh?
'Til the police wanna lock me up
Chevy on creep, black Air Force 1's
We just gon' beat 'em
We just gon' be, you can ask 'bout me

Chorus
Grew up in the west bumpin' Dogg Pound and Jigga
Everybody wanna be black, don't nobody wanna be a nigga, uh
Feel like Malcolm X, peekin' outside my window
Everybody wanna be black, but don't nobody wanna be a nigga, uh

Song Facts

“Black 2” is the sequel to Buddy’s July 2018 single, “Black.” On both songs, Buddy is expressing how he is unapologetically black and loves his complexion. He also expresses how many people are obsessed with black culture but refuse to acknowledge black issues.

“Black 2” was released as a protest song amidst worldwide protests and unrest regarding the unjust murder of George Floyd and other black people at the hands of police in recent weeks and months.

For the single’s artwork, Buddy recreates the iconic image of Civil Rights activist Malcolm X bearing an M1 carbine rifle while looking out of a window in his New York home. The infamous photo was taken by Don Hogan Charles.
