The King's Dead – Caveman Lyrics
[Intro: DJ Mendoza]
Alright I'll try to do a British accent
Hello, this is Mendoza from the Dean's List calling
I was just calling you back on that label offer
I was just wondering what you guys were thinking when you said that
We don't go by any of those formulas, strategies
We do whatever we want, when we want to
And yeah, especially we are not down for any deadlines
[Verse 1: Sonny Shotz]
Mendoza, what the fuck is a deadline?
You know I kill a verse, a dead line
Drop a couple lines just so I can wow'em
Reason why the mixtape sounded like an album
Everybody bugging like "Why you so different though?"
But I'm the same, I just never met typical
That's why my last name is what she does every night
Sometimes I wish I could just die and live a different life
They keep on yelling, I'm telling 'em all "Don't do that"
Keep it moving, we cruising so "Baby, who is that?"
I'm on my Beantown shit, you know we good, we good
Yelling "Fuck it I'm Young" just like we should, we should
Half these rappers are actors, I guess it's so Hollywood
Never real and if they are then it's probably just because
They've been living great and doing shit they never would
Never sellout, I'm jelling out everything they never could
[Hook: Dani Ummel]
"Die, freedom die"
That's all I hear inside these label lies
They just wanna see me light up the sky
But tonight I'm taking shots, putting bullets aside
And I'm running for that top spot, never looking down
Keep my head above the bullshit so I can never drown
Tell 'em I'mma be okay, I'mma be good
Doing everything they wish they did but never really could
[Verse 2: Sonny Shotz]
I'm a caveman, 'fuck I need a pen for?
Every verse is just my life, no mentor
I grew myself up, then we blew ourselves up
This time next year you will probably tell us (Uh oh)
"I used to know you back in high school"
Now you're flying first-class, that's what I call high school
I fucking hate this beat, give me something I can flex on
I hope you hate this shit like Jesus, play the fucking next song
And when you play that, you realize
The game's whack, then play back
The shit here, and realized
We changed rap
