Again with the hook.

An homage to the Biggie line that ends “Things Done Changed” to mirror my own mom’s battle, an aspect of life that makes all the rap bombast and posturing seem really stupid and fleeting in the end.

I have trouble getting caught up on the little things because they are eclipsed by the big things experienced by my loved ones.

Deal with all the shit that you have to deal with. One example of this is my weirdly inexplicable shitty right leg that has always hurt in the rain even though my doctor couldn’t figure out why. This is why I get really bothered about losing my umbrella.

Folks that want meaning and context and simplicity cannot have it both ways, fucko. So stop asking for that or expecting it.

My versatility has earned me fans of all kinds as I do dazzling stuff, the rap equivalent of a dunk so crazy that it sends the glass of the backboard across the court.

“List” and “is” kind of rhyme, right? Sure, they rhyme enough. I get a little vexed by much shittier rappers getting over as you can probably tell. But f'real, if you’re not feeling me, you’re likely not actually reading this or haven’t heard me yet :(

Or maybe you have and you’re stupid. Or nervous. Don’t be nervous. I’ll be good to you.

I liken myself to Thor in terms of gravitas and grandeur, in pursuit of success tantamount to that of Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon, and that I won’t stop until I am dead (underneath flowers, I supposed).

This is my way of saying I need your focus via a reference to Jay Pharoah’s now cherished “principal making special announcements” bit.

I got you, son. Don’t worry.

Thank you, Leroy. Your compliment has made me feel powerful as a pat on the back from Paul Bunyan.

Here they are from my phone directly copied and pasted as I wrote it originally

verse 1:

wake up, put the brush to my busted teeth
Day one of these lucky luxuries
now i wake up whenever it comforts me
sit down on the train on a dusty seat

into the city where they hustle, cheat,
just to eat a more supple meat
why pay for the cow when the tongues for free
i'mma save the world so my first son can see

they might find the door but never touch the key
they get tricked by a slick mike huckabee
all my old ways now seeming dumb to me
but you’d have prob'ly done the same when you were young as me

i’m taking every shot til the buzzer beeps
and touching every base til i scuff my cleats
been nice since i was in dungarees
so when it’s all done i'mma fuck and feast

verse 2

now i used to play with them little army men
until i really learned what an army meant
got fans that are uniformed guardians
and they’ve all got family that longs for them

i don’t wanna hear another word from barack
til he turns up the clock and brings them home
they’re needed more here where the people
don’t fear the next moment something explodes

and we’re still torturing, damn it feels fraudulent
to lie that we’re more righteous than the people that we war against
the audience is partying with all the best intoxicants
as their fellow humans smell the fumes of dead and rotten flesh

verse 3

I go to sleep then open each
My eyes to find that no one seems
To care about the slowly creeping
Ocean sea that’s growing deeper

Oh you just be hating soul
Cause they’re too cold like the h2o
Where the glaciers float, wait wait, where’d the glaciers go?
Nevermind your brain’s too slow

Sorry if i’m not believin what you taught to stop the heathens
And really if there’s kharma why did they leave Gandhi bleedin
I ain’t trapped within the lines of any kind of Palm you’re readin
This is my life and I'mma live it like I always dreamed it
