Enigma

Sample from ’21 Jump Street’

[Verse]

Vinyl made us, blood-sweat nation
Tryin to drop swag into a permanent hiatus
Caters to the haters of these old school beats
Stealing? I call it re-dealing music at its peak
It’s an enigma to them, these names that are a glimpse
Into a world of rap that boom-bap’d those kids
Wish I could’ve been there, impaired now musically
Wish Bigs could have sat down, wouldn’t cap out and tutor me
Wish you could see what beats really ought to be
Stuck between layers of kick and snare like ricotta cheese
Read the label free lips, listen to Spose spit
Don’t need Universal to hurtle out hits
Yo, call Yeezus and get him on the file
And pile up the rivals only for media revival
All the while claiming libel when the press portrays slime balls
That they are, below par heart covered by a bible
And tittle the greats of the beats, spit heat with tight flows
You clever like DOOM? No you’ll never come close
And hoes with loose flows got more potential than bros
Who are more average than Joes and ‘bout as different as clones
Can you show me how to make it? Be trash
Flow ass and rap just about the money you stack
And be ignint to facts when your crack surpass the clap
And you lack the wit to see it’s in reverse like a beat trap
But alas good tracks ain’t past
Presently discrepancies separate passion and cash
Hunch and laugh ‘cause you’re prolly not have bad
But grab easy cash ‘cause lately cats would rather have that
And say I’m blabbering, a rap badgering badger
A tatter to mainstreams quilt, less thought than laughter
Poor flow and getting badder, more proud than a bragger
Rather not chance another kid you have to call ‘the rapper’
