[Chorus]
What type of music should I make? It generates love and it generates hate
What kind of topics should I stress? I can talk about the money and the girls and the sex.
Talk about life or talk about death. Living care free or I can talk about stress
What kind of picture should I paint? What kind of music should I make?

[Verse 1: Mac Miller]
So many things to say not a lot of times that I can say em’
I can talk about the fact that I’m a rapping caucasian.
Talk about going to school and getting bad grades.
Talk about breaking the rules and having bad days.
I could talk about girl problems.
I could talk about hoes from the ugly to the hot ones.
Or I could talk abut this dream I have.
Or I could talk about my homies when I seem em’ last.
Say I’m the illest on the mic, how I kill it when I write.
Or how the lights when they film it so bright.
I could talk about the fame and the hoes.
Or all the name brands on my clothes.
Talk about the highs, talk about the lows.
Talk about the highs that you get when you smoke.
I talk about a lot of shit when I write.. because it’s part of my life.

[Chorus]
What type of music should I make? It generates love and it generates hate
What kind of topics should I stress? I can talk about the money and the girls and the sex.
Talk about life or talk about death. Living care free or I can talk about stress
What kind of picture should I paint? What kind of music should I make?

[Verse 2: Mac Miller]
I could talk about the parties that I go to.
Talk about how it’s so different from the old school.
I could talk about the pop and the whack rap.
Or I could talk about some ounces in a backpack.
Talk about a fitted, talk about a snap back.
Something simple, or something real abstract.
About the war, talk about politics.
Or I could tell you how full my Louis wallet is.
I could talk about a few religions.
Or how to turn a Jew into a Christian.
I could talk about the shit that make you cry.
Or I could make it all up and just talk about lies.

[Chorus]
What type of music should I make? It generates love and it generates hate
What kind of topics should I stress? I can talk about the money and the girls and the sex.
Talk about life or talk about death. Living care free or I can talk about stress
What kind of picture should I paint? What kind of music should I make?
