  • [Verse 1]
    How we go from “Who’s that?” to “That’s who!”?
    Gave the game life when it had less sole than flat shoes
    Heart of a king, blood of a slave, a hundred chains
    Sixteen bars that prison guards could not contain
    We put on ice as soon as we get hot
    And carry heavy metal just in case we slip, not
    These kids rock like we Kid Rocks of hip hop
    And if you hope that it stops then kick rocks in flip flops
    CD’s fill bins like Regis, but we still treated like animals
    Right? No PETA
    Maybe ‘cuz we shine like a Las Vegas ?
    Cuz we all pack heaters. They in drive, two seaters
    Hittin’ one city but I rent two cars
    Damn Big, did we take it too far?
    This is Ozymandius’ chain going too hard
    We are slaves to our vain man, look at the scars
    But I got…

    [Hook]
    Chains, whips, bars, see?
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    (x2)

    [Verse 2]
    It’s hard to quit the bull, they be on some Jordan shit
    Cuz when really do it, you don’t choose it, you were born to do
    So I choose for my fam’ and you, Florida shit
    And I’mma kill a nigga on some Dexter Morgan shit
    I promise momma that college wasn’t just for the kid
    Cuz I master the trophies you don’t box up in storages
    Nobody ever sang my praises, amazing
    Now I’m hopping up on stages where they all singing my choruses
    Chains, bars and whips. Y’all ball cuz no umpire would ever call THEM hits
    That y’all spit out y’all lips
    I spit out my soul, you just spit out your spit
    I’m going for the globe at the end of my wrist
    North Pole on my twelve, South Pole on my six
    Vizzy on tock, bad bitch on tick and it just won’t stop
    If you don’t know that boy sit cuz he’s got

    [Chorus]
    Chains, whips, bars, see?
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    (x2)

    [Bridge]
    While everybody struggles to be so free
    I can’t take these chains off me
    I can’t take these chains off me
    I can’t take these chains off me
    (x2)

    [Chorus]
    Chains, whips, bars, see?
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    So tell me why I feel so free
    (x2)
