The sound of dissent takes many forms-voices rising, chants echoing. In New York, dissent also sounds like Pop Smoke. The Canarsie-born rapper, who was shot and killed, in February, at a Hollywood Hills home he was renting, was known for his low, rumbling style of Brooklyn drill, which, as Pitchfork and Nylon have noted, has recently filled the streets and shaped the soundtrack of local Black Lives Matter protests.

What You Know Bout Love – Pop Smoke

[Intro]


Uh

[Verse 1]


Shawty go jogging every morning (Every morning)
And she make me breakfast almost every morning (Every morning)
And she take a naked pic before she leave the door
I be waking up to pics before a nigga yawning
And every weekend my shawty comin’ over (Over)
Shawty could Fendi out but she like Fashion Nova (Nova)
She ain’t driving no Camry she pullin’ in a Rover (Rover)
With her hair so curly, I love you, baby

[Chorus]


She said, “What you know ’bout love?” (I’ll tell you everything)
I got what you need (Oh)
Walk up in the store and get what you want (Go get it)
You get what you please
We ’bout to get it on, take off them drawers (I said I love you, baby)
It’s just you and me
You know what I be on, I’m about to go raw (Love you, baby)
‘Cause I like what I see

[Verse 2]


Look, baby, I said I ain’t gon’ front
You got my heart beating so fast to words I can’t pronounce
And I be getting the chills every time I feel your touch
I be looking at the top and girl, it’s only us
All I need is your trust
And girl I told you once, don’t make me tell you twice
I know you see this print through my pants that I know you like
And yo ass be looking so fat when it be in them tights
And I’m going straight to the top, so hope you ain’t afraid of heights
You always keep me right, for a fact, you never left
Through all the trials and tribulations, always had my best
So here’s fifty-five hunnid, go and get your breasts
Start rubbin’ on your butt, start kissing on yo neck
Hey batter, batter, hey batter, batter
Niggas know I had to swing, I had to make a play
I had to apply the pressure, ’cause you my hidden treasure
I think I’m falling in love

[Chorus]


She said, “What you know ’bout love?” (I’ll tell you everything)
I got what you need (Oh)
Walk up in the store and get what you want (Go get it)
You get what you please
We ’bout to get it on, take off them drawers (I said I love you, baby)
It’s just you and me
You know what I be on, I’m about to go raw (Love you, baby)
‘Cause I like what I see
