Strictly fast food runnings How we supposed to adapt How we supposed to raise kids to that And I ain't blaming no one it starts with me Before heart failure there's blocked arteries We were usually on point no archery Creative to a fault Like an art degree but something happened it's kinda like a takeover The sampling law changed The looping of the breaks over Tho corporate there's nothing pretty about this makeover Pay for play and now you influence what we say We even let you walk off with the deejay It's hard to hear a single scratch on records these days besides the clichés Somebody got to keep up traditions It's a new day but still something is missing I mean [Chorus] That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) [Verse 2] And now the new school is no school Cos everybody and their mama knows Pro Tools Writing raps and recording bad vocals Being a star is more than being anti-social I'm more than boastful I'm hopeful of brighter tomorrow Used to weaving words together other writers can follow I hear anger in music but the message is hollow Upon further inspection you can see what's been borrowed Foreign ideals of real bluffing to do with nothing now we reinvent the wheel Caps get peeled as we slip on banana skins Stuttering stammering should have been Fannie Lou Hamer-ring Instead we are glimmity glammering This struggle is a headache plus Anadin Mic check even breathing is challenging The music is a powerful thing especially when it's used to boost the power Within but you don't hear me ha! [Chorus] That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) [Verse 3] I had my palm read She told me not to leave this alone So I miss real artist like Nina Simone Full of integrity never too keen to be cloned That's why the need to be different Buried deep in my bones Cos swagger never paid bills just skills I guess I took the long road mountain plus hills Turntables and mic cables love from the crowd is more important than the right label And I don't want the 90's sound back But you can't deny the Linn Drum really sounds wack Just living thru the movie but not feeling the soundtrack Not trying to be bougie but not trying to be round that I grew up in a brown black facade so I'm not trying to act like I'm that large But I'm trying to rap like I'm that guard when it comes to culture I'm pulling raps card Like a placard [Chorus] That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) That's what I'm telling everybody (I'm like you never) - UBARH: UBARH is a dedicated urban music video channel.
