    The faces used and the lyrics with them: OJ Simpson I said I'd do this for my culture To let y'all know what a nigga look like in a bulletproof Rover In my mama's sofa was a doo-doo popper Hair...

    The faces used and the lyrics with them:

    OJ Simpson I said I'd do this for my culture

    To let y'all know what a nigga look like in a bulletproof Rover

    In my mama's sofa was a doo-doo popper

    Hair trigger, walk up closer, ain't no Photoshoppin'

    Kanye West Friends bipolar, grab you by your pockets

    No option if you froze up, always play the offense

    Niggas goin' to work and sellin' work, late for work

    Workin' late, prayin' for work, but he on paperwork

    That's the culture, point the finger, promote ya

    Remote location, witness protection, they gon' hold ya

    Jussie Smollett The streets got me fucked up, y'all can miss me

    I wanna represent for us

    New revolution was up and movin'

    I'm in Argentina wiping my tears full of confusion

    Water in between us, another peer's been executed

    History repeats again

    Will Smith In the land where hurt people hurt more people

    Fuck callin' it culture

    (I want, I want, I want, I want)

    But I want you to want me too (I want, I want, I want, I want)

    I want the hood to want me back (I want, I want, I want, I want)

    I want the hood

    Look what I done for you (Look what I done for you)

    Look what I done for you

    Kobe Bryant Euphoria is glorified and made His

    Reflectin' on my life and what I done

    Paid dues, made rules, change outta love

    Them same views made schools change curriculums

    Nipsey Hussle As I bleed through the speakers, feel my presence

    To my brother, to my kids, I'm in Heaven

    To my mother, to my sis, I'm in Heaven

    To my father, to my wife, I am serious, this is Heaven

    To my friends, make sure you countin' them blessings

    To my fans, make sure you make them investments

    And to the killer that sped up my demise

    I forgive you, just know your soul's in question

    I seen the pain in your pupil when that trigger had squeezed

    And though you did me gruesome, I was surely relieved

    I completed my mission, wasn't ready to leave

    But fulfilled my days, my Creator was pleased

    I can't stress how I love y'all

    I don't need to be in flesh just to hug y'all

    The memories recollect just because y'all

    Celebrate me with respect

    The unity we protect is above all

    And Sam, I'll be watchin' over you

    Make sure my kids watch all my interviews

    Make sure you live out our dreams we produce

    Keep that genius in your brain on the move

    And to my neighborhood, let the good prevail

    Make sure them babies and them leaders outta jail

    Look for salvation when troubles get real

    'Cause you can't help the world until you help yourself

    And I can't blame the hood the day that I was killed

    Y'all had to see it, that's the only way to feel

    And though my physical won't reap the benefits

    The energy that carry on emits still

    I want you

    The single's cover art contains the hands of all six men, derived from some of the more famous (or infamous) pictures of them (e.g. OJ's gloved hand).

    Nipsey is probably the least well-known person here as he hadn't quite broken through the hip hop scene into the mainstream by the time he died, but he's given the most prominence and a whole verse of this song. For some more details about him, here are two articles on him:
