1] Yo
check, out this tape (is it rock )?No
it isn't but, I really think you'd dig it if you'd give this shit a listen It's
my heart and soul (you play your own instruments )?Well
not actually but, we got the sample from (yeah...
well whatever it's, all crap to me) I
know but, this is different I'm gifted and, it's some phat shit (rap
is ignorant stop, acting like you're black kid) Yo
can, I at least pop it in so we can find out (I?
said no I! don't allow that nigger shit in my house get a job) Ok
I catch your drift this shit is just my passion (I
don't give a fuck what it is you, put it in and, I'ma smash it) (I
said no that's why don't, even ask again Keep
it up and find yourself fucked up just like your black friends) Yo
it's, doper then most rock shit (yeah right) At
least it's honest Ya, know you're right To
like this shit you need some soul so, you ain't on it You
ain't heard of Outkast Then? how you lived a rock riff Cop
some Pharoahe Monch tickets and whisper mosh pit (Yo
you're, still hear I? thought I said to hit the road )?Yo
fuck, you Helen Keler Do
the twist until your hips explode [Chorus

2x] My
god speaks to hip hop prophets through rock riffs 'till
white boys drop beat boxes in mosh pits [Verse

2] Yo
check, out this piece This
shit is clean (is that so )?(If
it's on a building it ain't art) Well
what about the sisteene chapel I?
bet if you tried to give graph just half the chance you'd did it (Yo
that, shit is ignorant and, all it is is vandalism) (Go
to school and get paid to paint not, playin' all night) Oh
so, if it don't pay it ain't art and, if it does it's all right I?
don't get it (It's wrong 'cause you can go to jail you dipshit) Oh
like, they fed Christians to lions how, is this shit different (People?
can't even read it how's, it art I, thought so )!'Cause
art lives ?? like Basciot ask, Picasso (Tell
it to the judge when you up in jail dummy) (Don't
even bother to call me or your mom for bail money) I
ain't asking you for shit just, 10 minutes to peep some flicks If
that's too much to ask you ain't got eyes to see this yet If
you ain't seen you ?? just missed impressionism When
Dondi flicks rough as Van Gogh the lessons given (I
didn't ask you to express yourself give, up your cans kid) Fuck
you Helen Keller I'll, hit the bricks you, hit the canvas [Chorus]
