radio edit (no swears)

about

To celebrate 3000 facebook likes on the rap legend Jesse Dangerously fan page, I revisited a song from the album that taught me almost two decades ago that rap could be ANYTHING YOU WANT and still incredible.

This radio edit is completely free to download, but if you support me with a donation of $5 or more, you'll get a download of the STREET VERSION with TWO* of the English language's most SERIOUS SWEAR WORDS in flagrante delicto.

*it's actually the same one, twice, and really close together

(I just want people to give me money!)

lyrics

I crank up lyrical flows! It's truly astounding, now you're hearing the most
Beautiful sound in your life. I'm checking your throat, ears, and your nose
I'm the doctor. Anything goes, playing good cop/bad cop at the station
"You need a bad operation."
An ad hoc committee formed to show me admiration
You brainstormed and it flooded only half the basement
You don't need cash donations? Oh, congratulations...
Well, I do. So !!!! Eminem, and !!!! U2!
Get out my iTunes! I'll see you on the streets at high noon
"You wanna hear a joke? I'm you!"
As rap moves on to the year three thousand

THREE THOUSAND
THREE THOUSAND

Let me shuffle red mountain mana, black from the booster pack
You tap the casting cost-- "Oops, you lost." Back To The Future, and I
Had to reduce your stamina. Backburner's the rappers & baddest producers in Canada
That's who the dudes is, grandma! I'm Ranma 1/2, yeah
I been quiet a while, but I had my fun last year
I'm knocking you enlightened lamas out of Nirvana like Pat Smear
I'm classier. Past college - no diploma, I'm PAST it!
"The mirror said, 'You are, you conceited bastard!'"
And I hadn't asked it a question, so that was just passive aggression.
I may have made a lasting impression 'cause my face is a mask of classic perfection
Stop for gas and directions to a million worlds
Billion worlds
Katrillion worlds

THREE THOUSAND
THREE THOUSAND

As studies have shown, appropriator acts are inappropriate
I've watered down the sound... that came from the ghetto
In the middle, the core, I admit it I bit it 'cause the
Next man placed practicum behind it. I find it ironic. Isn't it?
That I been go-onning & getting it? Haunting & visiting all of the monuments?
Pivoting off of the cyni-- aw, I can see you don't want to get into it.
Well, I'm positive. I'm proven. I'm honest and raw when I'm intimate,
But I don't go raw when I'm intimate, 'cause that's a risky business.
Pack a picnic basket - isn't that rich? NO SIR,
Like most of the word pRISON backwards, ha
