Idk King Alfred
Idk King Alfred

IDK’s newest single “King Alfred” starts with a bang and doesn’t stop: “bring Obama back, tell em bring Obama back/got the uzi and a cannon, where the drama at?”

The rapper’s most recent project IDK & Friends 2 showed off his chameleon-like ability to adapt his brand of eccentric lyricism alongside any artist, whether it was Maxo Kream or Juicy J, but this latest loosie is proof that he can easily carry a track by himself. It’s not hard to see why the rapper was first courted by TDE and G.O.O.D. when he says things like “they was talking shit, now they talk to 2Pac/now they JFK with the roof off.”

Featuring a cameo appearance from Lil Yachty counting in Spanish, “King Alfred” is whimsical, off-kilter, and a stinging observation of what is happening: “we shall overcome/and if we don’t, bitch you better run.”

Lyrics

[Intro: Gil Scott-Heron & IDK]
Should there at any time become a clear and present danger
Initiated by the radical elements threatening the operation of the government of the United States of America
Members of this radical element shall be transported to detention centers
Until such time as their threat has been eliminated
Code King Alfred
Uh-huh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy

[Verse 1: IDK & Lil Yachty]
Bring Obama back, tell ’em bring Obama back (Back, back)
Got the Uzi and a cannon, where the drama at? (Grrat, grrat)
Oh, they askin’ for a favor, where the commas at?
Uno, dos, tres, ayy, cuatro, cinco, seis, ayy

[Chorus: IDK]
We shall overcome (Ayy)
And if we don’t, bitch, you better run (Ayy)
They comin’ with the sticks and the drums (Ayy)
The money make the band sound great, buh-buh-buh-buh

[Verse 2: IDK]
What’s your rate? (What’s your rate?)
I’d rather do the flight than wear a cape (Phew)
R.I.P. to STP the Great (R.I.P.)
SMG, we got it out the crate (SMG here)
Ring a bell and make a nigga late
Like, what it do, Bob?
This a warzone, send ’em to the gulag
They was talkin’ shit, now they talk to 2Pac
Now they J.F.K. with the roof off

[Chorus: IDK]
Like we shall overcome (Ayy)
And if we don’t, bitch, you better run (Ayy)
They comin’ with the sticks and the drums (Ayy)
The money make the band sound great, buh-buh-buh-buh

[Verse 3: IDK: IDK & Lil Yachty]
Ayy, she know I’m daddy, so she goin’ to Baghdad
Like a militant, I make the lil’ bitch calm down, I’m a Ritalin
Talk behind my back, but you actin’ like you innocent
We no longer cool, why you actin’ like we friends again?
When bass up, make a check hit
I buy commercial real estate, not a necklace
Someone throw a brick at my stepfather Lexus
11106, that’s the address, bitch
Ayy, Bowie, Maryland, just to be exact
He stole my mama house, ain’t no G in that
Countin’ up my own money, now I’m free at last
Uno, dos, tres, ayy, cuatro, cinco, seis, ayy

[Chorus: IDK]
We shall overcome (Ayy)
And if we don’t, bitch, you better run (Ayy)
They comin’ with the sticks and the drums (Ayy)
The money make the band sound—shh

[Verse 4: IDK & Lil Yachty]
Bring Obama back, tell ’em bring Obama back (Back, back)
Got the Uzi and a cannon, where the drama at? (Grrat, grrat)
Oh, they askin’ for a favor, where the commas at?
Uno, dos, tres, ayy, cuatro, cinco, seis, ayy

[Outro: Gil Scott-Heron]
Um, it’s 1972, an election year
And, once again, Black people are running
For their lives
