R Kelly - Bad Man Lyrics

You see really I don't
Give a damn what you may think of me
(That's right you're a bad ass nigga)
I'mma do what I'mma do, I'mma say what I'mma say
(You think you're a bad ass nigga)
Ya understand what I'm saying?
Well you better

I was born in these streets
Raised in these streets
Walked in these streets
Taught by these streets
Lived in these streets
Hustled in these streets
Arrested in these streets
Protected by these streets

Yeah though I walk
Through the valley of these streets
I shall not fear these streets
Because I run these streets

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
And I've paid my own dues
With my own pennies and now

[1] - I'm a bad man
I'm not ashamed of
A bad man yeah
And don't need your love
I'm a bad man yeah
I'm not ashamed of
I'm a bad man
My life's made me tough

I've stood on these blocks
More hood on these blocks
Got paid on these blocks
Sprayed on these blocks
Moved in on these blocks
Went out on these blocks
I've been around the block
Been watched on these blocks

Yeah though I walk
Through the valley of these blocks
I shall not fear these blocks
Because I run these blocks, yeah

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
Paid my own dues with my own pennies
And I'm

[Repeat 1]

Now I believe the day will come
When my heart will decide to change
But until then
See everything will remain the same

[Repeat 1]

See sometimes I gotta tell myself
(I'm a bad man)
To keep surviving
And no matter what the cause
(I'm a bad man)
I gotta keep on keeping on yeah
Came up in these streets
(I'm a bad man)
There was no father there for me, hey ooh
(I'm a bad man)
Cause sometimes we would just have to go without eating
Hey how you like me now?
(I'm a bad man)
Give my life for my brother
See I'm a bad mother SHUT YOUR MOUTH
(I'm a bad man)
Go on, go on, go on, go on...

  57. Michelle Preston

    R Kelly is literally a BAD MAN👀

  58. Renee Leslie

    Free r Kelly 😭😭😭😭❤

  59. Jada Raynor

    Mute who...boy bye... I seen him in concert... SOLD OUT... and he was so humble I also have a picture with him... Personal life has nothing to do with me..Musically HE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE KING OF R&B... Always will be a fan...okkkkurrrr😉

  60. Sharon Bullock

    I love that song thats the best song you did

  61. Shalahea Reed

    Well at least he knew what he was. We just never really caught on or just ignored it!


    Shalahea Reed instead of you worrying about R Kelly you should instead be worried about white men like Jason Roger Pope 600+ black women infected with AIDS.

  62. Madeleine Davis

    RSK king ish right here...🙏🏾🙌🏾👑❤️

  63. Heavena Wilson

    He has a lot of music I never heard before...His Music and Talent is not disputed..it make me sad to think of all the things his personal scandals take away from his career....He does need help..Therapy..Maybe not Prison..This is in Gods hands ..maybe he wil likely be put on a sex offender list...no contact with minors..That might actually be a good thing for him...

  64. Myron Boone

    like the color in the background,

  65. Mack Holden

    This brother is still the king of RnB no matter what they say , can't nothing or no one take this man talent away from making great music God bless you my brother! Stay strong!

  66. Epiphany1972u Tatted Queen


  67. Epiphany1972u Tatted Queen

    Love this man for life

  68. LITTY A&S

    This is one of Kellz all time best songs

  70. Ryan Lee

    Man this song hits every time!

  71. Patricia Eaddie

    Still listening to it.

  72. Harrison Williams

    When u got it u got it cant no one but God take that away from u

  73. Jeremia Senki

    I think R Kelly was a messenger of God, same as Martin Luther King Jr, Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Ghandi, Dr Myles Munroe,etc and he came to fulfill an assignment and he did so to the fullest extent of his abilities. I've made it this far in life bcos of his inspirational songs such as 'bad man'. I pray that he makes it thru this adversity his going thru right now. Lord have mercy on this brother.. Amen

  74. Tae Ymssa

    That title is so ironic now
