One in the air for the people ain’t here.
Two in the air for the father that’s there.
Three in the air for the kids in the ghetto.
Four for the kids that don’t wanna be there.
None for the n***as trying to hold em back.
Five in the air for the teacher not scared
to tell those kids that’s living in the ghetto
that the n***as holdin back that the world is theirs.
Yeah yeah, the world is yours.
I was once that little boy
terrified of the world,
now I’m on a world tour.
I would give up everything, even start a world war
for these ghettos girls and boys I’m rapping round the world for.”
