lyrics

Nothin Fri3ndly
featuring More or Les, Swamp Thing, Wordburglar, The Mighty Rhino, and Ghettosocks
(J. Ward SOCAN / J. McDonald SOCAN / L. Seaforth SOCAN / J. Lepine SOCAN / S. Jordan SOCAN / P. DeFrancesco SOCAN / N. Goodbaum SOCAN / D. Pyper SOCAN / E. Aouad)

The end is near

Do you feel enraged and furious?
And would you like to destroy the world in acknowledgement of the hugeness of your rage?

I’m looking for a much more sinister noise, and when I find it

Put your hands down, play the background
Back down, we’re about to crack down
We’re about to crack down
We’re about to crack

Gray's Anatomy, a medicine man
I got a letter that said I saw your act, it's better than Cats
Editors ask for a draft, I blow a wind in the cracks
In fact, I boned your dad and jacked him for his Senators hat
Hit it from the back, I'm Prodigy and Havoc, audibly slapped
It's hard to be mad at me, ‘cause I'm probably an addict
Autocratic ruler, ISIS meets the opioid crisis
A short-circuited circus, priceless versus worthless

This is how I roll, and I’ve had less people tell me to switch lanes
Than to keep my foot down and just maintain
‘Cause nothing’s changed, so nothing friendly remains
What I’m saying is that pop is monoculture farming, harming the terrain
When your aim’s total market dominance, producing lames
Accept the next to step up sets some new production chains
No need for fame, we’re not even playing your game
We’re rocking Calvinball, you had it all, but now you owe for pain

Put your hands down, play the background
Back down, we’re about to crack down
We’re about to crack down
We’re about to crack

Are there times when you’d like to obliterate yourself?

Yo, I’m ace-symmetrical, ace up each sleeve
Catch you in a deep sleep, wake up, please leave
It’s Chokeules, find someone as ill as me
And I’ll rip off their mask, only to reveal it’s me
Say what I mean, and I’m mean when I say it
Nice with it, too, so it gets complicated
Y’all play the back, we laying the smack down
Colder than a kiss from a Rose before Jack drowned

I don't have a common occupation like a street sweeper
Look like I could probably be an extra on Leave It To Beaver
Cleaner than 2000 levers, all I need’s a mic and a receiver
Plus sweet speakers, make you a W believer
The procedure is to each reach and leave your seats
So you can be here. Not millionaire? Me either.
But if peeps need, I’ll bring a free T-shirt
Cause there’s nothing friendlier. I’ll see you in the ether

Unh, the cold winter makes my thumper numb
Big gorilla boss with the thunder plums
Same jogging pants until the summer’s done
Shorties out in France call me number one
Breathe real slow as I walk through the pathway
Dark parking lot, Porky Pig get the gas face
Four blunts on a bad day
Wig powdered up, gavel hit, that’s a sad case

I’m old school, give my life for the common cause
Burst into flames, crash when I kamikaz’
Drone strikes, autonomous slaughter-bots
You a wet fish, Oswald Cobblepot
Out the swamp, whole squad stay waterlogged
Pass me the conch, bout to put some lather on
Fin to blow up in your face like a Molotov
Timmy Bend Sinister, Vladimir Nabokov

Put your hands down, play the background
Back down, we’re about to crack down
Are you sad?
We’re about to crack down
Does hopelessness consume you?
We’re about to crack
Are you scared?

I mutter sullen oaths and keep the gutter close
They say it’s freedom or death, I guess I’m stuck with both
My company is monks, hustlers, thugs, and rogues
Rap vibes baptized in the blood of G.O.A.T.s
I’m the unkillable thorn that corrupts the rose
Bob and weave on the track like I’m Muggsy Bogues
Rhino, the people will be screaming woo shit at my funky flows
Until the motherfucking sun explodes

If I had to kick in the door on some Biggie, Rick Ruler shit
I’m waving two .44s like the square root of six
Your young brain can’t conceive a single line that’s ludicrous
Your mundane fantasies don’t even make my pupils twitch
Speak the body language of a pugilist and move swift
You’re claustrophobic as the church pews tip
Getting closer to God in a tight situation
If I have to hear your demo, I’m a demonstrate defenestration

Put your hands down, play the background
Back down, we’re about to crack
Are you impatient with being criticized?
We’re about to crack
Do you feel irritated at being judged?
We’re about to crack
Have you become very small, and ashamed of never being enough?

Would you like respect?
