Jay-Z – Adnis (Music Video 2017)

Lyrics to “Adnis” performed by Jay-Z

Uh, letter to my dad that I never wrote
Speeches I prepared that I never spoke
Words on a paper that I never read
Proses never penned, they stayed in my head

Jotted on dotted lines, I’mma fight you, ni*ga
From stories that I heard, I’m just like you, ni*ga
Must’ve been some pain in your past, too
Must’ve been a karma that was past due

Must it be the energy that passed through
Must’ve been a pastor, many snafus
Started a good man, you married my mama
I was in her belly, you hurried that Summer

She had two kids from a previous mister
One family, I don’t believe in half-sisters
Never treated my brother like a step, Pop
Remembered the many lessons when we stepped out

What was you preparing us.. for

Did you see the runt as the front-runner
Leader of the pack, you see that in your youngins
What ancestors did you submit to the summit
To give me what I needed, what you need to take from ’em

The tsunamis that I swum in to become in
Had the cable with the anchor for the places that I sunk in
Unc in a better place but you couldn’t function
Shot junk in your arms, more than your veins was punctured

I punted on feelings, ’cause you said you was coming
You couldn’t kick the habit, I wish you said something
You can’t avenge these many sins with your own hands
You wanna make God laugh, just tell him your plans

Who would’ve thought I’d be the dad I never had
Be the husband I’ve become, usually nothing come from that
I forgive you as I live through the beautiful present of the past
I’m just thankful that I get all these gifts to unwrap

What were you preparing us.. for…
