I Hate School
I do know this, I don't like school Never fit in, never followed the rules But now I'm skipping class, posted smoking on the roof And from where I sit, it's a hell of a view Homies hit me up, tell 'em all come through Girlies hit me up, tell 'em all come through Day dream in class man that's all I do So now I'm setting out to make them all come true No school taught me to write these lines No school taught me to rhyme these rhymes In the classroom from time to time But I'm only in there sweet talkin' the dimes like Hey, is you doin alright? Like Hey, whatchu doin' tonight? Like Hey, let's get to it tonight If you doin' it with me, then you doin' it right I'm a college celebrity On the race to fame and there ain't no one ahead of me Was staying in my lane but now I'm finished with settling Sick of listening to what the system is telling me Check it: If you smart then they have to test it And if you don't care they say you're misdirected Ain't nobody guessing as to what they're interested in Just the 50 thousand dollars that your mom and dad invested Look: they just taking the bread In exchange for taking up the space in my head But I can graduate this without breaking a sweat So if I can make it I'll take the paper instead I'm in a place where I can walk away Dedicate to making sure my songs get paid And I ain't saying that I'ma do it today but Shit, dropping out worked out for Kanye See I've been working day and night, tryna make it rapping And in my free time tryna make it to my classes Faking my exams and just praying that I'll pass it Embarking on the path to surpass all this whack shit So I practice, cuz I won't make it otherwise Now I know for sure I don't belong with these other guys Sitting at the desks with the gum on the undersides Head in our hands, thoughts lost in the summertime I got them butterflies fluttering in my tummy When I put together my album I'ma go out and get this money But these teachers tell me that I have to wait "Cuz to make it in the 'real world' you have to graduate" From white boards to psych wards, desk rows to death row The system institutionalizes us from the get-go Give the kids a couple pills for breakfast with their Eggos And Presto! A school full of zombies with a dress code But that's the way that it goes They treat a piece of paper like it's plated in gold Like Willy Wonka's winning ticket making the mold To make you think that your diploma is a yellow brick road To a job making paper, with instant success But you think that you made it there by acing your tests? You're as complacent as the hamster when they got you on the wheel Shit, I'm outta here, I don't need that deal
