“Tunnel Vision” by Kodak Black Translated Into English

[Intro]

Gleeee!
Southside
Ayy, Lil’ Metro on that beat

Translation:

I’m so happy to be here!  I represent the Southside and a guy I paid some money to by the name of Leland Tyler Wayne, also known professionally as Metro Boomin produced the beat to this song that I will be rhyming over.

[Chorus]

Lil Kodak they don’t like to see you winnin’
They wanna see you in the penitentiary
I need me a lil’ baby who gon’ listen
Girl, I don’t wanna be the one you iggin’
My mama told me, “Boy make a decision”
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
I need me a lil’ baby who gon’ listen
Girl, I don’t wanna be the one you iggin’
Lil Kodak they don’t like to see you winnin’
They wanna see you in the penitentiary
I need me a lil’ baby who gon’ listen
Girl, I don’t wanna be the one you iggin’
My mama told me, “Boy make a decision”
Right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision
They sendin’ all my homies on a mission
And I ain’t tryna miss out on these millions

Translation:

Greetings everybody.  My name is Dieuson Octave from Pompano Beach, Florida.  I am an American rap artist and this is my story about people who do not want to see me become successful in life.  People everywhere would rather see me wind up in prison for some reason.  What I really need in my life is a woman who is willing to just listen to me discuss all of the struggles I am going through without her feeling like I am agitating her.  I would try talking to my mother, but she told me that I basically need to make a decision about where my life is headed and do it now.  So upon finally reaching that decision to become an American rap artist, I’ve decided to develop tunnel vision to help me remain focused on accomplishing my goals.  All of my friends appear to be on a mission to accomplish their goals in life, so I feel that I need to get myself together so that I can hopefully make millions of dollars as an American rap artist.

[Verse 1]

I jumped up out the Wraith, Kodak bought a Wraith
I get any girl I want, any girl I want
She want me to save the day, but I ain’t got a cape
She wanna see me every day, she wanna be my bae
That money make me cum it made me fornicate
Uh, I’m the shit, I need some toilet paper
Follow my player rules then we gon’ be okay
On the real, I need a bih who gon’ cooperate

Translation:

 Due to my recent success as an American rap artist, I decided to purchase a $315K Rolls-Royce Wraith just so I can be seen getting out of the car everywhere I go.  Fortunately, this sound investment decision has allowed me to get any girl I desire with very little hesitation.  The downside to this $315K purchase is that now all of these women that I easily acquire want me to spend some of my money on them to make their life more comfortable, but at this point in my life right now, I just cannot do that.  These women would love for me to go into an official relationship with them to where they can call me their man but I’m not really looking a relationship right now.  I would say I’m just interested in having sexual relations with these women, but truth be told, I prefer to pleasure myself all by my lonely while staring at my the high numbers in my bank account which symbolize my success.   As of lately, I am the man these days and if people follow my rules for how to be a player, then we will be on the path to success.  But as for me wanting a girlfriend, I just really prefer a woman right now who is comfortable with letting me just live my life how I want without any strings attached to her.

[Chorus repeated]

[Verse 2]

I told you nigga, I’m gon’ be that fuckin’ nigga
Everything be good ’til you doin’ better than ’em
They wanna see a nigga shot or see me in the system
All you niggas out here poison like snake venom
Codeine in my liver, rockin’ Balenciaga denim
I’m booted even when I’m sober, I don’t need a jigga
They sendin’ all my niggas on a fuckin’ journey
I told that baby to come over ’cause I’m fucking horny
My mama told me, “Kill these niggas, son, keep it goin'”
I’m thug to the bone, but I’m still her baby boy
Lil Kodak, boy they hate to see you in a foreign
They miss when you was in that ‘Yota kickin’ door

Translation:

 Listen guys, a long time ago I told you all that I was going to be successful.  But it’s now come to my attention that most of you were happy when I wasn’t successful and now that I’m obviously doing better in life than you, I sense some hate.  Some of you want to see me get shot and some of you want to see me go to prison.  Sadly, a lot of you guys are just poisonous like snake venom to my success in life.  To block out all of this hate you guys send my way for being successful, I’m going to pour some codeine into my beverage of choice to where it may possibly affect my liver somehow.  In addition to getting high off of my codeine/beverage combination, I’m going to celebrate my financial success by spending a couple of thousand dollars on a denim jacket and/or jeans by a company named Balenciaga…nevermind I could spend the same thing on something similar for like 50 bucks elsewhere.  To prove to you all that I’m so focused, I can do all of these things even if I’m sober.  I don’t need something to get me high to achieve these results.  The reason why I may consider doing these things sober is because I have a lot of friends who have either died or gone to jail messing with these items that get us high.  Recently I told my girlfriend to come over and sexually please because I was in the mood for sexual relations.  My mother told me that I should keep striving for success and do not stop.  My mother looks at me as simply her baby boy, but her baby boy has grown up to become a hardcore thug who makes music now.  Sometimes I tell myself, “Dieuson, it’s a bunch of people out there who do not want to see me driving expensive foreign cars.  These people prefer to see you remaining stagnate in life like back when you used to drive a Toyota doing various criminal activities.”

[Chorus repeated]

Your favorite mulatto who isn’t interested in your feels.
