Got me breathing with dragons
I'll crack the egg in your basket, you bastard
I'm Marilyn Manson with madness
Now just imagine the magic
I like to ask it, don't ask for
Your favorite rapper

(He dead) yessir
(Amen) chuuch
(He dead) I killed him
(Amen) bitch

And this is rigamortis
And it's gorgeous when you die
Ali recorded and I'm Morpheus
The Matrix of my mind
I'm out the orbit
You an orphan and a hairdresser combined
I'm on the toilet when I rhyme
If you the shit then I decline
I climax where you begin
And then I end on Cloud 9
And that's important when you morph
Into a angel in the sky
And don't be forging all my signatures
My listeners reply and tell me
That you biting style
You got a hell of an appetite
And I'mma be here for a while
Just buckle up before the ride
Or knuckle up if you could fight
We always making them duck or die
A suit and tie is suitable and usual in suicide
CSI, just might investigate
This fucking parasite

(He dead)
(Amen)

That's what they telling me
Aim it at your celebrity
This is studio felony
There would not be so many
And cool enough for the 70s
Nigga, payback's a bitch
And bitch you been living in debt with me
That I more than especially
Leave a call on his mother voicemail
To say that he rest in peace
Bigger chopper the recipe
Wrestling, that's irrelevant
Rather rest at your residence
Whistling to the melody
Couldn't think of a better D
Better be on your P and Q
It's just me Jay Rock, Soul and Q
So the system ain't why we cute
Ain't nothing else you can do

(He dead) yup, yup
(Amen) I killed him
(He dead) hahaha
(Amen) amen

Got me breathing with dragons
I'll crack the egg in your basket
You bastard, I'm Marilyn Manson
Don't ask who your favorite rapper

(He dead) yup, yup
(Amen) I know
(He dead) for sure
(Amen) amen

Got me breathing with dragons
I'll crack the egg in your basket
You bastard, I'm Marilyn Manson
Don't ask who your favorite rapper

I rapped him and made him Casper
I captured the likes of NASA
My pedigree to fly past ya
I pass the weed to the pastor
We all are sinners, once you sinister
Bible study faster
You hypocrite is reaction of blasphemy
I assassin my casualty
And it's casually done
And tell 'em my salary come
A lump sum of hundreds
Don't talk to be bout no money
The sun is under my feet
And I come in peace to compete
I don't run if you rather leap
My statistics go up in weeks
And I go visit the nearest creek
And I get busy on many MC
Really ballistic, anybody can see
Any assistance, everybody done see
Some persistence, recognize I be
Really too vicious, the permanent beast
And the demolition, breaking up the streets
Better partition, better dot your T
And I gon' mention, how the far you see
Putting my dick in the rap industry
Everybody bitchin', getting mad at me
Recognize Kendrick, in the battery
And I'm charged up, and the catastrophe
Is charged up, and the audacity
And y'all fucks, never could hassle me
And y'all luck, just ran out you'll see

(He dead) yup, yup
(Amen) I know
(He dead) for sure
(Amen) amen

Got me breathing with dragons
I'll crack the egg in your basket
You bastard, I'm Marilyn Manson
Don't ask for your favorite rapper

(He dead) yup, yup
(Amen) I know
(He dead) for sure
(Amen) amen

    When rigor mortis occurs within a corpse, its muscles tighten, causing the body to become stiff and very difficult to move. The chemical reaction makes all blood gravitate to the areas of the body that are closest to the ground, leaving colorful spots as an indication of life that once existed. As the soul escapes, toxins remain causing the corpse to rot and decompose. This is the fate that kendrick lamar has deemed onto the competition, more commonly known as your favorite rapper. Amen!

    Death can be so beautiful at times. Boasting bars as mad as marilyn manson, one grim rapper emerges to hold hip hop ransom. Hailing from compton, los angeles, one of america's most neglected graveyards, kendrick yields his sickle (ballpoint pen) to pry open the caskets of lyricism, musicianship, and tradition. The emcee, once known as k. Dot, hence displays an heir of irony in his verses, murdering the fraudulent with the same weapon used for shedding light on realness.

    Section 80 was released in the first week of july and continues to receive steady rotation from barbershop stereos to ipods on college campuses. A clear game changer, his debut album is dynamic in the sense that it brings forth the story of a generation incubated in the years of reaganomics, while projecting the rebellious voice of a youth discontented by society's harsh inflictions.

    Directors, the icu caught up with kendrick lamar at various locations throughout new york city to shoot this highly anticipated video off of section 80. Accompanied by a triumphant three piece brass section, this funeral procession is not a mournful event, but rather a triumphant proclamation for a resurrecting art form. Chuuuch

    Mr. Lamar is lyrically killing all your favorite rappers. After hearing kendrick's music, you will no longer view your previous idols in the same way, they simply lag behind in comparison.

    Stiffening of the body after death. Kendrick applies this concept to his song to show that he is one of the best the other rappers are dead, his song is rigamortis which means he kills every other rapper out there he is the ill-est and sickest.
