How It Is

Verse 1

Never found my place in the crowd, so I stay from the crowd
They laughed at me then, but look at they faces right now
Jigga gave me the blueprint, I been tracing it out
Never chasing the clout, I'm just embracin' my route
Never catch me worshipping false idols [Never
How you flexin' in a rental with no car title?
And when it come to street credit, you got a low FICO
But you know I'm a smooth criminal like the G.O.A.T. Michael
Really, my psyche like Michael Myers, my flow psycho
If your intentions ain't genuine, I just don't like you [Nah
Who said I ain't good in the hood? I just stroll right through
Fuck what you heard, niggas know that I been cold like flu
So no comparisons [I'm cold
'Cause I'm the rarest one
I got respect for some niggas, I just ain't scared of none
Why every time when they need some help, I be there for them? [Huh?
But every time when the tables turn, I ain't hearin' nothin'? Hmm

Chorus

That's just how it is
That's just how it is [Uh
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Yeah, that's just how it is [Yeah
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Man, that's just how it is [Uh
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Yeah, that's just how it is [Yeah, that's just how it is
That's just how it is

Verse 2

Police pull me over and ask me why I look nervous [What you mean?
It's bloody murder, ain't here to protect or serve us, uh
You know the narrative
Life might be more fair if I had fairer skin
That's just the way it is [Damn
And we just can't pretend
You turn a blind eye on your people, that's a heavy sin [Word
See, I could give a fuck about the bread you spend [Fuck it
How you claimin' a culture that you don't represent?
Man, that's some sucker shit [Sucker
I was up, then I was down, but now I'm up again [Now I'm up
Now the ones that turned they back, they showin' love again
People see me, asking me, "Where's such and such and them?"
Don't bring them niggas up around me, I don't fuck with them
I cut 'em off, it's permanent [Cut 'em
And if you claim I did you dirty, you deserved the shit
Guilty until proven innocent's what the verdict is
When you from the hood, they don't treat you like the suburban kids, but

Chorus

That's just how it is
That's just how it is [Uh
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Yeah, that's just how it is [Yeah
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Man, that's just how it is [Uh
That's just how it is
That's just how it is
Yeah, that's just how it is [Yeah, that's just how it is
That's just how it is
