lyrics

Everywhere I go I see fake ass shit
I have to ask, is anything real anymore
Like this suburban kid is pretending to be street
And he’s on the top 10 of the billboard list
I have to ask, is anything real anymore
I don’t know

Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore

I was influenced by those who were down on their luck
The rappers who respected hip-hop and were real as fuck
Those who took their life experience and made it art
Those who reached into their soul and gave it heart
Back in the day, rappers worked to be unsigned hype
Now they’re like, why the fuck do you even need a mic
When a persona can be generated on the fly
From fake as fuck looks to lyrics, it’s all AI
I never thought people would bang this shit
Especially when the lyrics aren’t even fuckin’ legit
Talkin’ about the street life as if it’s an aesthetic
Like the creators of this bullshit are truly apathetic
To the plight of the youth stuck in them ghettos
All they really care about is getting the dough
They’re aware of the damage but they just don’t care
Is anything real anymore? I am scared

Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore

Tekashi be tellin’ kids that it’s okay to be a snitch
That you could lose street cred and still make hits
Drake be tellin’ kids that it’s okay to be a sell out
That you should chase for fame and chase for clout
Kanye be tellin’ kids that it’s okay to be a troll
That you can insult woman, that it’s cool to be an asshole
Khaled be tellin’ kids that it’s cool to be lazy
That you can do nothin’ and find success like crazy
The balls of these stars just straight up amaze me
The damage they’re doin’ is making me crazy
This the future we talkin’ about and it’s lookin’ bleak
Kids gettin’ away with this type of shit and we’re supposed to think
That it’s cool to be hollow, that it’s cool to be fake
And we supposed to look up to these two-faced snakes
What they’re doing is treason and we’re giving them attention
I’m serious right now, this is my dissension
And you can suck it

Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore

Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
Is anything real anymore
