Why my pops dropped me on my head? Cause I'm real reckless
Had no choice but to discipline me
Beat my motherfuckin' ass and put a good whoopin' to me
But it made me a better man

from Metta World – Represented Lyrics on Rap Genius


Metta recalls another example of his rough background, getting punished harshly by his father when he misbehaved

Metta looks back as an adult and believes that this tough love was beneficial to him, keeping him in check and in the end making him a better man
