Kendrick Lamar “Alright” performed @ 2015 BET Awards updated “Alright ” Video

“Alright”

Kendricks previous song, “u,” explores the burdens Kendrick has had to deal with. “Alright” coming in afterwards is appropriate, as it details how Kendrick means to escape from his troubles. Kendrick attempts to capture the post-depression moments where people are able to ignore their problems and comfort themselves with the idea that’ll be alright in the end. Once he looks past what he believes to be his failures, he is able to accept the fact that this is still all part of God’s plan, and that’s what is going to help him get by. If he repeats it enough it could possibly numb him from the pain and help him enter a positive mind-state.

Alls my life I has to fight, nigga

Alls my life I…

Hard times like God
Bad trips like: “God!”
Nazareth, I’m fucked up
Homie you fucked up
But if God got us we then gon’ be alright

[Hook – Pharrell Williams:]
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
We gon’ be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Huh? We gon’ be alright
Nigga, we gon’ be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright

Uh, and when I wake up
I recognize you’re lookin’ at me for the pay cut
Behind my side we lookin’ at you from the face down
What mac-11 even boom with the bass down
Schemin’! And let me tell you bout my life
Painkillers only put me in the twilight
What pretty pussy and Benjamin is the highlight
Now tell my mama I love her but this what I like
Lord knows, 20 of ’em in my Chevy
Tell ’em all to come and get me, reapin’ everything I sow
So my karma come and Heaven no preliminary hearing
So my record and my motherfucking gang can stand in silence for the record
Tell the world I know it’s too late
The hoes, the girls think I gone crazy
Try and fight my vices all day
Won’t you please believe when I say

[Pre-Hook:]
When you know, we been hurt, been down before, nigga
When my pride was low, lookin’ at the world like, “where do we go, nigga?”
And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, nigga
I’m at the preacher’s door
My knees gettin’ weak and my gun might blow but we gon’ be alright

[Hook]

What you want, a house or a car
40 acres and a mule, a piano a guitar
Anything, see my name is Lucy, I’m your dog
Motherfucker you can live at the mall
I can see the evil, I can tell it I know when it’s illegal
I don’t think about it, I deposit every other zero
Thinkin’ of my partner put the candy, paint it on the regal
Diggin’ in my pocket ain’t a profit, big enough to feed you
Everyday my logic, get another dollar just to keep you
In the presence of your chico… ah!
I don’t talk about it, be about it, everyday I see cool
If I got it then you know you got it, Heaven, I can reach you
Pet dog, pet dog, pet dog, my dog thats all
Pick back and chat I shut the back for y’all
I rap, I’m black, on track and rest assured
My rights, my wrongs are right till I’m right with God

[Pre-Hook]

[Hook]

I keep my head up high
I cross my heart and hope to die
Lovin’ me is complicated
Too afraid, a lot of changes
I’m alright and you’re a favorite
Dark nights in my prayers

I remembered you was conflicted
Misusing your influence, sometimes I did the same
Abusing my power full of resentment
Resentment that turned into a deep depression
Found myself screamin’ in the hotel room
I didn’t wanna self destruct, the evils of Lucy was all around me
So I went runnin’ for answers

  2. Every blog begins with a prayer first thing in the morning. I don’t really know what my blog will be about, but I continue to pray until that point when I get my answer. If I feel like I am going to write on a certain subject; I prepare; I almost ALWAYS use candles; stop numerous times and pray for guidance. I think my environment is extremely important so if I must blog in a certain location; I will go to that specific place for inspiration. I almost always use music (genre or old school memory type songs) brings back feelings and inspiration you wouldn’t believe.
    Good luck on finding your niche… Please share my articles if you think they will touch another soul. Love and Light Always ❤
