Tell these Asian kids they could do what they want. Might steal the mic at the GRAMMYs just to say we won. That everyone can makes it, don’t matter where you from

Berikut ini lirik inspiratif di lagu "Kids" yang menceritakan perjuangan seorang rapper muda menembus pasar musik dunia. Bukan kejayaan yang dipenuhi jatuh bangun dan cerita tentang mimpi di masa depan yang ingin diraih.

Ayy, uh

I’m putting numbers on the board and blowing more digits

I haven’t started, man, these are just the before pictures

Shout out my parents, my mother gave birth to four winners

All of the players in the game, it's always cold benches

Been in the studio, I forgot how to sleep

Not tryna make an album they forget 'bout in a week

They said the fruit never gon' fall far from the tree

I used to be the kid, now the kids wanna be me

Tripping about my future like way before there was cameras

Hella plans on my calendar 'fore I went all professional

Less souls to trust, man, these people makin' me cynical

More copycats and less people sounding original

Same destination, we just took different routes

Fuck being one the greatest, I’m trine be the greatest one

I ain’t saying I ain’t grateful for everything I’ve become

But the throne looks more comfortable than this chair I’m sitting on

My name is Brian, cold bars is what I’m known for

If my vision ain't scarin' me, then I don't go for it

Remember my first days here when it was all foreign

Now I’m on TV with James Corden, that shit was crazy

Just got a place with a backyard, I feel amazing

Nothin' can get between me and the dreams I'm chasin'

Ain't got the time for partyin', no more gettin’ wasted

Less you got the 1942, man, then get the chaser

You hating on me, but you know I got it

You big in your city, I’m the king of a continent

These rappers trine make the trending topic

While the state of music going south

But I don't even want to talk about it

Let's talk about it, nah, let's talk about it

Before all these folks decide it's cool to give a fuck about it

Everyone’s trine make hits, I’m just trine make music

You know, the kind that makes you feel when you listen to it?

I’m the youngest child, I don’t need more attention

You writing some bullshit, I write the lyrics meant for the captions

I’m making song that’ll probably outlive us for generations

Started off as the sailor, look at me, now I’m the captain

I won’t lie, this shit is fun

Tell these Asian kids they could do what they want

Might steal the mic at the GRAMMYs just to say we won

That everyone can makes it, don’t matter where you from

Can’t forget about the day that Sean called me

Talking about a vision called 88 that he is dreaming

Man, I love him like a brother, if we fall, we gon’ recover

Just a man with a vision who mastered in causing trouble (you can’t see)

Man, I can't see the finish line

Fall back, fall back, I ain't fucking round this time (Anymore)

Did God know he created a legend in 99? (Anymore)

Fuck pretending on a track, man, I mean every single line

Touched down, never holding back

Shining like some bust down, sailing round without a map

Been the underdog, now it's time to let me quarterback

Killin' shit in uncharted territories, man, this shit get hella gory

Whole country of people proud, so I’m never worried

Glad you're sittin' through the credits, man, this is my story

The type of shit that make me cry when I record it

This the type of shit that still gon' make me proud even when I'm 40

R.IP. Nipsey, R.I.P Mac

These inspirations always gon’ motivate me to rap

Let’s celebrate their lives and the people that they impact

The marathon continues, ain’t no way we looking back

Amazon Prime flow, you know I’ll always deliver

We crossed oceans for a chance just to feel somethin’ better

Generation to sacrifice, that we’ll always remember

It’s that circle of life shit, they hold me up like I’m Simba

They told me I ain’t welcome, I’m here to stay, and my visa says so

Just wait and see whose songs they gon' blast up in they headphones

Come back like every couple years to destroy like tornadoes

Victorious tropical flow coming straight from Indo

These plants only grow to just get cut and disposed

Their spotlight is dimmin', my future's so bright that it glows

You want the blueprint for impossible, I'll let it show

Remember when Pac said, “The concrete grows a rose"

Melihat reaksi penggemar musik dunia yang semakin "menggilai" karya Brian, tentunya kita patut bangga dengan musisi Indonesia sepertinya dan berharap banyak anak muda lainnya yang dapat mengikuti kesuksesan remaja kelahiran 3 September 1999 tersebut.
