“C Carter” offers a look at Cordae’s come-up as well as how his dreams as a kid have manifested into reality at this point in his career. The title references the 2005 film, Coach Carter and much like the message of the man himself, who believed that student-athletes should be encouraged to succeed academically instead of only in athletics, Cordae exemplifies this idea through his subject matter frequently blending braggadocio alongside thoughtful lyrics.

In other words, Cordae may be an MVP of the game, but he always makes sure he saves space for a lesson. What makes the message of this track resonate with listeners is that it references a specific memory in the collective consciousness of many kids who grew up in the same generation as him, watching the same movies and having the same dreams.

As with any come-up story, Cordae lets us know that the journey wasn’t easy and he still faces pressures and hardships. But through determination and by staying true to himself, he found an audience of people who relate to his music and eventually found an even deeper, spiritual connection to the art he creates. Combined with bluesy guitar licks and a soulful groove, the wistful feel of the track reminds everyone of the times they spent as a kid dreaming about bigger things, and perhaps maybe they too can one day look back at those times and be proud of what they’ve accomplished.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Huh, yeah, huh
Ladies and gentlemen uh, huh
Boys and girls, huh
Need y’all to just uh, huh, rock with me
Uh, yeah, uh

[Chorus]
I used to dream about a Dodge Charger
Suicide doors, sittin’ on 24’s
I was tryna find a job, but shit, why bother?
Being broke can make you try harder
Sittin’ in the house watchin’ Coach Carter
Plottin’ on this fuckin’ Cartier, hey
Plus a nigga tryna go farther
I finally arrived and nobody’s here, hey

[Verse 1]
I used to dream about a new Hummer
Back when G.O.O.D. Music dropped Cruel Summer
Back when niggas wondered if I’d do numbers
Check the stats, boy, a nigga doing huge numbers
Got this dime piece suckin’ on my cucumber
I ain’t doin’ too bad for a newcomer
This life shit gave me scars with a bruise under, hm
Certain shit will make you wonder (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But that’s a part of the game we call life, love is hard to attain
My lil’ brother drive a Jeep and I just bought him a chain
A real nigga what I’m is and what I always remain
But this bitch temptation keep callin’ my name
I wrote this song in LA, I was driving my Benz
Thinking ’bout this road I’m on to acquiring ends
I’m a fuckin’ outlier, I retire these trends
Niggas told me I was stupid just for hiring friends (Huh, but, uh)

[Chorus]
I used to dream about a Dodge Charger
Suicide doors, sittin’ on 24’s
I was tryna find a job, but shit, why bother?
Being broke can make you try harder
Sittin’ in the house watchin’ Coach Carter
Plottin’ on this fuckin’ Cartier, hey
Plus a nigga tryna go farther
I finally arrived and nobody’s here, hey

[Verse 2]
Okay
Listen to these proverbs, the odd words we call rap music
That took me all across the globe, watch people react to it
Figments of imagination, couldn’t fathom elation
Ain’t describable with words, so I’ll go illustrate it
Illustrious rhymin’ career, for which my rhymes are revered
Clear signs of alignment shows my timing is near
We all here for an assignment, severals souls that are migrant
Simply vessels in this climate, solitary confinement
I break free every time that I wake
My fate bleeds and create seeds that eventually blossom to trees
Getting rid of all the extra shit I thought I would need
I put your head on the swivel, wear my heart on the sleeve
But just breathe, the simple exercise can even rectify
Our greatest sins, although my days won’t end next to God
I atone for all of my wrongs throughout songs
But let him who is without sin go cast the first stone, motherfucker

[Chorus]
I used to dream about a Dodge Charger (Dodge Charger)
Suicide doors, sittin’ on 24’s
I was tryna find a job, but shit, why bother?
Being broke can make you try harder
Sittin’ in the house watchin’ Coach Carter
Plottin’ on this fuckin’ Cartier, hey
Plus a nigga tryna go farther
I finally arrived and nobody’s here, hey (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
