about

This is a remix of the first full song I ever wrote. I summarize the lyrics as an essay on my blog: cadrlife.blogspot.com/2012/05/annotated-rap-lyrics-work.html

lyrics

[Bridge]
Nothing that was said impressed me
Today’s Number One
Won't get a second pressing
And its just depressing
Catch the real music heads ingesting

Medicine to cope
Liqueur or the dope
Be better than your coast
Cause the remedy is growth
Everything we wrote
Was penned for you to quote
Ask letterman the whole
Top ten has been a joke

[VERSE 1]
Dogs Yappin.
Pompey Smashin
All these bastards
Not reactin
My kinda
Night timer
Party crasher
Go velocaraptor
On you cocky rappers

Like I just learned how open doors
Write like worthy to hope for war
Rhyme like you're earning your vocal cords
Fight for courage the focus yours

Boasting clowns claiming doper than thou
Now / Throw in the towel or get thrown in the pile
We old school off the hook like a rotary dial
produce while you vegetate like grocery isles

Controlling the sound and performing for crouds
I would hope by now that we’re known in the town
Co Mo no coast cold holdin’ it down
Puttin in work no coasting allowed

[CHORUS]
All I’m asking is for my brethren
To be more progressive in recording sessions
South east north or west’n
whatever quarter section of the bored you reppin

All I’m asking is for my brethren
To be more progressive in recording sessions
South east north or west’n
whatever quarter section of the bored you reppin

[BRIDGE]

[VERSE 2]
Lesson three / you’ll do sets for free
Only the best MCs can pay their rental fees
You got the recipe for you yo press CDs
But if you ain’t perform live then you’re dead to me

Rest in peace yall are average joes
You had plans to grow but 4you cancelled those
We do Classic shows / If you got cash to go
Collect 2 stacks like we’re passin go

but If have to boast then you need more to say
MCing’s a game not so easily played
we need to believe we can speak from the brain
or scene will be seen to decease and decay

I’m forced to mention / you write boring sentences
Rhyme forms repetitive / Mike cord get severed and
I’m born to represent, life more the ever I’m
On my damn grind past time or the present tense

Always DJ all day each day,
Fans got tapes on a solid replay
possibly I’m thought to be a prodigy to wanna make a mockery
of monuments to modern mediocrity

[CHORUS]
[BRIDGE]
