Disclaimer: I actually listen to a lot of rap. It’s lyrical poetry, after all. This is just some fun I had to switch it up.
Sometimes I write these lines and, think my poems are all the same
Why don’t we take a minute, dip a toe into the rap game?
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t rap, but I’ll pen some bars though
Pause all of the deep stuff, swim in waters shallow
All these rappers, most of them, all they talk is trash, see
“I’m the greatest look at me, flow so sick it’s nasty”
Then I read their lyrics, it’s just ego, insecurity
Hold this cup
Now let me take a sec and change the beat right up
If I had the need to write about the things they write about
All I’d do is take a sec and talk about the shit I doubt
Hold on Matt, whatchu mean? Come on now it’s crystal clear
Their game is so far under mine, just a few that come near
Who you ask?
Well, in that biz
Ill count ‘em on one hand cause man that’s all there is
Em, Pac, much love to Kendall, too
NF is dope for being real his shits so fresh and new
But enough of that let’s switch it up so I can try my hand
Stroke ego like Chainz or West, pretend I live in Rapland
Read my lines they all got purpose, be damn sure they got a point
Come on over A.T.L., now listen as my words anoint
Y’all think your money compares to my topics? Please.
Don’t see it making folks rethink philosophies
Tearing open all these minds, just this pen and just my tongue
Writing so complex that my mechanics must be quantum
The only bitches that I play are these words I sculpt, see
Own this English language, man I’ve made that shit my property
You know what?
Maybe I should charge rap rent for writing shit that sucks
Anyway I’m done for now cause this was just a joke, ya’ll
Thought I’d shelf the feelings for a second and just act tall
It’s been real.
But goddamn that quantum mechanic line was nasty! 😉
