The chilling video starts off with a picture of the late rapper at the hospital, visiting Parkland survivor Anthony Borges. It then turns to a clip of a male teenager being bullied in the school bathroom by a group of students. As the video continues, the young teenager pictures himself walking through the hallway with a machine gun, as students are running through the school halls, trying to escape. Meanwhile, Lil Wayne is seen standing on top of a police car, rapping his verse.
Kids at school calling me different, yeah/ So I’m tryna work on my differences, yeah/ Cool kids at school smoke bigarettes/ Teens with nicotine or with liquor breath/ Or the semi-TEC at school, what’s the bigger threat?/ Intellect mixed with inner stress/ That’s a recipe for disaster
