I promised this was a solo record, but Timbuktu had me over for secret holding-hands barbecue party and next thing I know, we’re in his sweaty London basement trying to sound like lost Juice Crew members. Too sexy.


[Tim] (unruly) No scruples, peep my pupils – I don't lose sleep over stupid people. You can't recoup, 'cause I found the loophole – got no loot, just drop the needle.
Unh, non-violent, keep it peaceful. I got my own Bible, and please believe I don't balk at imbibing – the tribe is lethal. Everybody on my side, keep it live with ease, yo! Got destructive drive like El Niño while I sip vino, nothing I can't teach you.
Not the Keystone Kops, we unequal. Butchershop chop, and we Flock of Seagulls!

[Jesse] (wiseacre) We deliver shows to the third dimension to make 'em say, "EAU," like thirsty Frenchmen. Words and sentences deserve a mention here, reverse-engineered by my worthy henchmen. Save a buck getting thirty percent more, as if I gave a fuck on the dirty cement floor. My stentorian oratory is more than ordinary – you just can't! Touch! This!
You could put us on a Beats By The Pound track, and we'd still come out as dope as the Street Fighter soundtrack. Bounce back, burn you off like an ounce of fat, loose the hounds and surround and attack.

[Tim] (incredulous) Too big for OUR britches? PFFT! You're just midgets ass-kissing the last kids to get with this! Chew off your digits like a Sasquatch, up on the catwalk I'm sexy – reppin' the ramrod, unh! Can't call it, this rap packs a wallop, I'm after more knowledge and after that, call up a cab. Diabolical and maulin' em bad, Tim Wallace be abolishin' the prominent fads. Always been my motto that your posse is wack, should have kept that shit anonymous and hid in the back.
Wild west! Try to follow us? Run with the pack.
Call us Barnum & Bailey, peep the carnival act.

[Jesse] (tough guy) Get your weight up, got to get solider; even your name's nonsense like Nick Oliver. Spit polisher, didn't bother to call ahead, all I did was holler, “My squad is deffer than Gallaudet!”
On a bet you couldn't up and gather the guts to lather it up with us, so cut the chatter. What's the matter? I don't like sucker rappers who chug a daiquiri and come running after me.
Whoah, sonny, what's so funny? I'm no jester. Go-getter, I throw money at protestors. Road tested, no rest and no shorts taken – we got your cohorts quakin' in boots, naked and bruised, knowing they gonna lose to two negative dudes who made the rules you must obey to manoeuvre through the wave of mutilation, and who's the lead vocal?
The megaboozer and the teetotal.
