Rapsody The World

If I ruled the world I’d be Caesar the Wise One

Give a damn about your life, I guess I blew eyes, son

They saw me as a flash in the pan, now back in their ass

Could beat your whole squad and I don’t need guns

Where you coming from? The movies? You’ll see my angle?

Correlation? Like Farrakhan in The Nation

Y’all all crazy

All brothers got my back, ask Soul, Jabari, Jason

I mean Problem and that’s a problem

That you all gon’ be faced with

You Asaic basic, send a thank you to Viacom

You would’ve never made it inside the basement

That’s hierarchy, it’s like riding a Harley

You gotta reach to touch my bars, baby, I’m Marley

No bobbin’, you couldn’t miss me like an RV

In a bicycle lot, when I pop you need McCartney’s

Paul bearers, I swear I seldom played with Barbies

No shots, cold cases at my bars see, ha ha

All the cadavers in Israel, it’s pitiful

War is ugly, how we kill kids over these pedophiles?

My stomach growls of hunger for wisdom from the owls

Wrap my body in towels like Ghandi and tell you all to bow

Wow wow, yippie yi, yippie yay, my bite’s bigger than growl

And I swear there ain’t no single day they don’t pray for us, uh uh

Back when y’all was talkin’ bout y’all was number one stunners

I had my gun up mentally on some uh uh

Surrounded my circumference with homies that wouldn’t stunt us

Yeah, you gotta grow, baby

Kobe, I’m the bean, I’m down to lead ’em to heaven maybe

Watch us all rise, I got them screaming like “Jesus, lady”

Rapsody, please save me

I’m the beauty and the beast, the last third’s amazing

Cautious, stop, go back, she’s like flags Jamaican

I swear if my kind rule half of y’all wouldn’t make it

It’s Rap

Rapsody Beautiful Music

[Rapsody:]

Ka$h, Ka$h don’t make beats, he make

Beautiful music, one-two-one-two

My man Murs, what’s up Murs?

Beautiful music

Yo, beautiful music it raised me

Like daddy belt when I was actin’ all crazy

Sneakin’ headphones on the buses to school

While them other fools was fightin’, I was rockin’ to AZ

The night they made me, probably listened to O’Jays

That’s why I love music, keep it runnin’ like OJ

In the fashion of most (Mos), wearin’ out all the old plays

Black on both sides from my skin to the old Jays

Just yesterday I was rockin’ the Ol’ Jay

My blueprint, tryin’ to see me through it all like Oakleys

He changed the game like Kelly did foreplay

Now they pee-pee in they tee-pee when they see me like Biggie

Nowadays, styles done changed like CK

They inclined to listen to the same song on replay

Keep a gang of stars in the halls where we play

Cause there ain’t a lot of songs nowadays they anticipate

Like Jamla, Phonte, Rozay Ricky

It ain’t all rosey like Andre say

We lost three legends, Whit, Etta James, MJ

Gotta protect the kids where I live, my pen state (Penn State)

Until they state of mind feelin’ every word I say

Beautiful music couldn’t beat like old D Dre with Beats

How we beatin’ everything that they play?

Beautiful music, my brother man Ka$h done make, it’s beautiful

Now how it look? It go

Da da da da da da da da da da da

Da da da da da da da da da, hey

Da da da da da da da da da da da

[Childish Gambino:]

Word, you ain’t heard the Pharcyde?

Burning disks for them high school car rides, like

Ooh-la-la-la, it’s over

Traded in the Fugees for my cousin’s Stankonia

He used to bone to Bone Thugs in his waterbed

Rockin’ dreads listenin’ to new Portishead

Wu-Tang to Midnight Marauders

Comin’ out a system while I’m chillin’ with his daughter

Fathers would freak out, “You listen to P-Funk?”

I listen to anything when she’s sportin’ them C cups

Jill Scott and Gil Scott-Heron

Was blarin’ out of the dorm of the woman that I swear I was marryin’

It’s them cold NYU winters

Laptop, brown socks, and no dinner

Drownin’ out the sound that my stomach made

Napster, nigga I got everything

Yeah, Fruity Loops lookin’ like Tetris

I want to be Pharrell so bad I got the haircut

I want to be Pharrell so bad I cut the drums out

And put my own verse on the end when it comes out

Lost my V-card to D-R-E

She liked Train so we broke up, listen to Big, grow up

Listened to J-Hova, I was a J-Hova, witness

Trying to make sense of the beautiful music

Now how it look? It go

Da da da da da da da da da da da

Da da da da da da da da da, hey

Da da da da da da da da da da da

Da da da da da da da da da, tell ’em it’s beautiful music

[GQ:]

Yeah, hah, appreciate you sis

Yeah, I don’t know much y’all, but I do know this

I’ve loved this since my cousin had a two-door whip

To Ms. Hill, I still get chills from The Sweetest Thing

To every angel still prayin’ for Anita’s wings

A fantasy Mariah singing with Old Dirty

I played Regulate back when Pac played Birdie

Hi there, Beautiful Idea, repeat it

To get by Mary and Meth was all I needed

Uh, I guess I got addicted at a young age

702 was playin’ games in the subway

Mind playin’ tricks on me, do I look confused?

I just want my day to go as good as Cube’s

I’m all smiles though, I thank sis dearly

It’s more than a art, I paint this clearly

I swear from this feeling get an extra lift

But thank Rap, she just blessed you with Beautiful Music

Yeah, she just blessed you with beautiful music

Sis, you got one girl, yeah, Ka$h

Somethin’ that just feel good, you know?

Somethin’ you ride to, wake up in the morning to, go to sleep to

Sis, that be that beautiful music

Ka$h, beautiful music

Love the way you listen to me; before you eat, you say grace

Mama called me today, told me she’d die for me

Still got love for you niggas that wouldn’t cry for me

My story start on the twenty-first of the winter

And it’s cold, I’ve been baring my soul just like a pin-up

In the summer when it’s hot we be rolling without the tint up

And I miss the good old days when good music came through antennas

When it’s 10 up in the morning we wake up like “How we end up?”

But I’m glad we did handling biz, baby you in it

That’s real love, it ain’t been different since the beginning

We covered all bases and still we’re going for innings

No need to make it complex baby, that’s what its meant for

That’s word to my center, I shelter you like we indoor

Because I care about you

And anybody that’d want to hurt it I’d paralyze you

You’re like that feeling of a father’s first son born

Unconditional, I fell the speed of asteroid

In love, I send kisses and hugs to old misters

With all my goodbyes, finally completed my picture

The colors so descriptive

My heart resembled Christmas night

Gotta glow the window to my soul shows Christmas lights

Woke up to greatest gift; God read my list last night

I had a dream and what I seen was simpler than black and white

They don’t like to take advice

You don’t love when you see it so, look I have lapped you twice

Fruits of our labor are dying we need love in life

Call up your station, we need train all our people right

Cause in the station they evaporatin’ rapidly

Word to Oscar, give him Oscars for his great mastery

Depicting a story we know too well, I love you niggas

In the most special way and know that we always witchu

Love

Rapsody 2 AM

[Rapsody:]

Backrubs on backbones and black booty

Ain’t nothing else popping out here at 2AM

If it ain’t good intentions niggas out looking for food

Or end up in intensive, down in county zoos

I couldn’t count on you yesterday nigga, where you was?

Everybody ain’t family just because they call you cause

I know a few used to beens and some that never was

And I ain’t have to grow up in streets, I know it well enough

Growin’ up with homies that grew up in it, fell for some

Sometime after whoop, there it is for some

Just learning to hoop some, look son ain’t no unsinging

I mean I’ll never be an unsung

My uncle had bad lungs and I hope my brother learned something

And he just tell me we gon’ die from something anyway

But my motto ain’t no need to speed it up none

But my niggas like anyway

Backrubs on backbones and black booty

Ain’t nothing else popping out here at 2AM

If it ain’t good intentions niggas out looking for food

Or end up in intensive, down in county zoos

[Ab-Soul:]

You know the freaks come out at night

How am I so bright but my eyes so sensitive to the light

That’s a balance you’ll never understand in your life

It’s like you never play Jenga or Life in your life

Or like you never met a nigga that got life in your life

I’m sacrilegious making sacrifices, ain’t I Christ?

I tried to tell Lo God, everybody got talent it’s just what you do with it that matters

That’s coming from one who in acquiring skills saw his words would eventually cut deeper than Skilsaws

See music is the king of all professions, that’s partially

Cause even at crossroads it can bring Bone-Thugz-N-Harmony

Hip is to be intelligent, hop is for the movement

In other words if you ain’t riding you stupid

We spreading like germs all over the whole earth

I propose to you a purpose for your own birth

To let your soul glow all over the universe y’all

Get it? We united by verses, all

Protons, neutrons, and electron, that’s all

[Rapsody:]

Backrubs on backbones and black booty

Ain’t nothing else popping out here at 2AM

If it ain’t good intentions niggas out looking for food

Or end up in intensive, down in county zoos

I couldn’t count on you yesterday nigga, where you was?

Everybody ain’t family just because they call you cause

I know a few used to beens and some that never was

And I ain’t have to grow up in streets, I know it well enough

Marcus Mariota, came in with wings on my shoulder

Where I’m standing the grass the same green all over

Ain’t gotta throw the skin cause the lines don’t flinch

Heartless in this department, I ain’t changed a cent

I don’t count on y’all the same, math problems

The more I add, the more I lose, math problems

If my lane ain’t like Problem’s with all diamonds

I know the pressure gon’ bust more than water columns

Y’all blow pipes like Whitney out this motherfucker

Singing my business to my other nigga’s other niggas

Imagine if Ricky had a gun out this motherfucker

There woulda been a lot less blood in the street, get it?

I heard a ho nigga a ho nigga that talk, nigga

Like he know niggas, no no nigga, I know niggas

I know common niggas act common, but I know Common

This bitch in you well all see, yea I’m so honest

Come around talking big game, you ain’t Torry homie

I don’t drive pickup but I do dodge rams

This really all wolves all clothed as lambs

I’m really superhuman, y’all just pose like Cam

Putting broads on the ‘Gram get out my business, damn nigga

Don’t like pigs, my mouth ain’t even ham nigga

Know how to handle y’all, call me Shammgod nigga

Know the game and when and how to bounce quick

Cause I don’t stick with those I suppose I don’t trust

Mama taught me right from wrong, be aware of your clique

So I guess I gotta switch up my faculty quick

I see error in your ways, ain’t no future with it

2AM the whole block up

Wanna be alone tonight, I pray no one no pop up

Chillin’, some days I don’t feel like comin’ out my taco, shell

I know niggas who got goals like soccer who ain’t doin’ well

Living through me yellin’ “throw the Roc up!”

Instead of watching news, the days events, they never shock us

Know niggas around my way playing tata and chocolate droppas

Your feelings spillin’ over, hope there’s someone there to mop up

Wanna let me ego go on you niggas

I’ll be modest, I’ll be hottest, I won’t hide it

Call the kettle what the pot is, I’m black and proudest of that

Yea I made it from the bottom

Like I stood in line for hours for Jordans and they ain’t got ’em

I been disappointed

Took it and this the point

Some of you rappers corny

I know we all just fornicating there’s no debating my rating

Should be way up there with Lauryn’s

If you colour me bad make sure the colour you use is orange

I’m a Frank Ocean; a realist

Only rock with the people that got that real in ’em

Carolina, what up? You know I’m still with ’em

If they ain’t rockin’ like this then we don’t deal with ’em

Hey, uh

Only rock with the people that got that real in ’em

Carolina, what up? You know I’m still with ’em

If they ain’t rockin’ like this then we don’t deal with ’em

Hey, uh

Def Jam deal fell, fuck it that’s how it go

I paid dues to pay dues, the idea of beautiful

Box me like cubicle, niggas can’t do it

I am more than two titties in viddies I ain’t Frank Lucas

Rap dope dealer higher than heroine users

Deals they come and go, they all are abusers

High as we used to know, first time used it

I am rap nigga, nigga strung out just like acoustic

Flow translucent acting like they don’t see me

Playing like they don’t, passing over CP3

Kobe 24 shit, here’s another repeat

Here’s another repeat, fuck where the respect be

I am M-dot-E, the rap-rooted alien

Going back to kill again, notify the next of kin

Stuck like Gilligan, Flow over millions

Studied the best, the rap big William

Jigga, my nigga, rise like helium

Too big for mediums

Double XL’s tryna squeeze me the L again

So over that, lookin’ up, only see my chin

Colder than Michigan

No synonyms to compare me

I’m fairly rare in this world we in

Rapsody Come Home

[Sample:] Every time I reach you isn’t there

[Rocki Evans:]

You cannot call, call this livin’

You make me wanna cry

When I ain’t got you, you in my life

Feel like I’m gonna die

I can’t, I can’t do it without ya

Aww baby, no no, no no-no no

Want you to come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

Yea, come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

[Rapsody:]

Pack bags, unpack bags, we over

Sister called said you was back killin’ the cobra

Said you weren’t doin’ well and I ain’t well neither

Got your voice mail and well, you ain’t sound sober

Thought about comin’ back just to help you focus

Don’t know what we doin’, every day it feels hopeless

I know we both in love but I dunno if love’ll hold us

Baby I wanna, contemplatin’ with Jehova

Praying if I do that I can trust that we can lay on sofas

And just talk about it

I don’t wanna argue, I don’t wanna cry about it

I guess I’m comin’ home to you

It’s been too long, and like you, I can’t do without it

It hurts, I can’t breathe well at all

That’s real love when you can’t exhale tomorrow

Won’t be pleasant, it’s dark even if the sun shines

My mind too cloudy they can hear my cries through the walls, neighbors

See the morning papers at my door, him through my vent praying for my sores

Not livin’ well cause hell I miss you like Williams, Venus

Inner space I pray to God, every day I’m dreamin’

God, save me, I need my baby back

Goin’ crazy like Shady, this is proof of that

Can’t breathe, don’t really need no noose for that

Hangin’ myself throwin’ this liquor back, off a track

We all go through rocky roads and we both react

I got your call and I called to say I’m comin’ back

[Rocki Evans:]

Want you to come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

Yea, come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

Come on home to me baby

Rapsody In The Town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

[Rapsody:]

Word around town spread, she lying on her deathbed

Used to spend most her days making sure they love fed

Corners used to hold her like coasters do Colas

And then when his satellite cobra striking and her disses paying good bread

She young, 18, never listened to what her mom said

Her daddy touch her fatty, now her real daddy insulted

Using his child to put some money in they wallet

She young, child bearing a child, she feeling nauseous

Sick of the world but got a fetus, need to feed it

So her need to me and then give it pleasure all for her baby girl

She curls her hair with irons, not hot as the heat she lyin with

That got her sick and now her insides inside her dying

Cars past they flyin, but everything around her slowing all

She sees the money that the town give to buy her

Soul, at 18 years old

Remind me of so many young girls I know in the town

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

[Rapsody:]

The nights move fast when the lights turn off slow

She all done shopping, got some brand new platforms

She could walk the town flagging down new Acuras or

Shiny Accords with two pastors in back of ’em

Don’t make her feel God, can’t forgive her for all of those

Said she stack her paper and won’t change forever ho

And she ain’t even showing so she going for all the dough

Cause the stress piling up and what she need is some help to cope

Exchange with drug dealers, some blow for blow hilla

Tryna take her mind off the killer like pillars dope

Her mind stay on it, wishing God would just make it snow

And take her off the streets, if only just for Monday though

The town hard and she scarred and she just wanna let go

On her dying bed, she take her last breath on an overdose

Only hours after pushing out a young baby though

She named her a miracle and prayed for her baby’s soul

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

[Rapsody:]

And now she older, 16 on the corner

Raised by her mom and daddy, smoking marijuana

Her real mom and daddy though, she never got to know ’em

Never knew a different life because no one was there to show her

Take her by the shoulders, tell her she was beautiful

Without a shame you never paid that at her age won’t use you all

She never finished school and never got to go to prom

And spent most her weekends working, putting needles in her arm

All the older women say she look just like her mom

And how she used to read the scripture from the Bible, Mark and John

But now she’s all alone in the town by herself

Like her mom tending to they needs, living for the wealth

Worried ’bout her health and the life that’s inside her

Reading scriptures from the Bible now and this is the cycle of the town

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

In the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town

Downtown, in the town
