Don’t even remember if I’m BMI or ASCAP

from Das Racist – Nutmeg Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

BMI (Broadcast Music Incorporated) and ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) each own around 4 million songs. Basically, if you broadcast music (eg. if you own a radio station) you need to buy a blanket license from one of these two organizations to play the songs owned by them.

Which one owns Das Racist songs? Kool AD pokes fun at the concept, because people like him are making music every day that can’t be controlled by these giants.
