Off-Brand Loyalty

Back at it with that music dawgs. I somehow got the phrase Off-Brand Loyalty in my head while getting off the F train at the Delancey Street station. From that point on I knew it was a song I had to create. So that’s just what I did.

 

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Verse 1
Yeah I rock Polo but it got an Extra L in
Not an Extra Large, they jus didn’t check the spelling
Got a Bathing Ape that’s afraid to use soap
But nobody gotta know, I can’t afford to look broke
Gotta stay fly, in any given situation
Rock the knock-offs, you know the cheap imitations
But, I don’t usually share this information
A little loose, what I’m wearing isn’t custom
The pants I bought, always gotta readjust ’em
‘Cause it’s missing a zipper and a button
I hit the thrift shop, don’t got diamonds in my wrist watch
Fake it ’til you make it because you gotta floss in hip-hop
I’m doin’ it like this I hit Canal Street
To get them four striped sneakers for my brown feet
The bottom of my foot looks like ground beef
I walk a lot a yo I really get around chief

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Verse 2
(Excuse me is that Coogi?) It is if that’s what you see
In the Eye of the beholder like beauty
Well then sure absolutely, by the way you a cutie
Are you a model, because your Couture Juicy
At least that’s what it says on your jogging pants booty
Beg Pardon, Are those rubies in you jewelry
Struck by all that gleams, but nothing’s what it seems
Like the city never sleeps, but still the city of dreams
For every pot there’s a lid, every plot has a scheme
So you and me baby we a perfect team (You Sure?)
At least the way that I see it (is that right)
Babygirl I guarantee i (believe it)
Tell Me what you want girl I got it
Anything you need girl I promise
Shopping sprees at Neman Marcus
Girl I got these jeans at Target

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Bottled Up!

The Water Crisis in Flint Michigan is a little unbelievable. I’m working on a song to vent my anger.
Been trying to figure out the whole trap sound, I’m too old school. There’s a sound effect of bubbling water and deep bow strings reminiscent of the jaws theme.

Here it goes.

(Intro)
A yo! It’s critical out here right now
America’s got a sickness
I think there’s something in the water
Oh, you want clean water?

(Verse)
It’s Bottled Up!
We talking ’bout brown water
For brown sons and brown daughters
Stagnant lake water
Where you wouldn’t even wash your face water
Have a sip, this is how racism tastes water
Make you believe the white man invented AIDS water
Evil, the way they did Tuskegee and shit
Or, maybe politicians just greedy and shit
They like, “These broke niggas don’t vote,
Lazy, threw ’em in the Flint River they wouldn’t even float.”
Big bully Business
Kick a town when they down
Industry done gone
Them jobs ain’t around
So, bail out a bank
But let the city drown?
Reduce a citizen to a budget line item
Look to you for leadership, and you sucker blind side ’em
Blood on the leaves, man there’s blood in the water
The blood’s on your hands
Lead pipes led lambs to slaughter

(Refrain) X2
Can’t keep it bottled up
Gotta Bathe in Bottled Water
Politicians Poppin Bottles
Whole System Out Of Order 

(chorus)X2
Wait, hold up
Let me get this straight
Ain’t Flint Michigan
In these United States
Turn on your faucets
All you see is toxic waste
Not just a tragedy
It’s a national disgrace

(Refrain) X2
Can’t keep it bottled up
Gotta Bathe in Bottled Water
Politicians Poppin Bottles
Whole System Out Of Order

Updated: Regarding the NFL Redskins

Washington-Redskins     So, since the owner of the Washington DC based NFL team isn’t backing down on changing the team name, even though the won’t renew the Trademark or copyright on the name. He feels he’s so right about this wrongheaded nonsense.  I therefore expanded the song a little to further express my displeasure with his stubborn bullheadedness.

I ain’t even full blooded, certified with sovereignty
But empathize with the mass  genocide an poverty
Now America chooses justice in their foreign policy
behaved horribly when we expanded colonies
In the nations capital football franchise
they keep nasty racial slur aggrandized
might as well be the Washington DC savages
Or the victims of ethnic cleansing practices
Wouldn’t call a team Wops, Spics, Kikes or Jigaboos
How about call them the Souix, cherokee, or seminoles
Pick any tribal nations or a positive trait
Look at the names of teams in other states
the chiefs, not so bad, Atlanta Braves pretty solid
But the name Redskins needs to be abolished
Don’t want to be called a cracker honkie, or devil,
Then Dan Silver should think about being respectful

Precious Metals – King Midas

Another single from King Midas from the Stunning Beeboy.

 

(chorus)
I’m here to shine so I bring the Precious Metals out
You want what’s mine so I bring the heavy metal out
Shell casings are silver and gold
So tell me what’s the price of your soul

(verse 1)
Swim around in my money like I’m Scrooge McDuck
Keep my number one dime piece around for good luck
And another couple dimes around just to fuck
Pull out the nickel plated when it’s time to go buck
Golden voice, golden eye, bitches love the silver tongue
Platinum touch is too much, eight seconds ’til they come
Time is money, that’s my lesson to the young
My money bought me time to be resting in the sun

(chorus)
I’m here to shine so I bring the Precious Metals out
You want what’s mine so I bring the heavy metal out
Shell casings are silver and gold
So tell me what’s the price of your soul

(verse 2)
Precious
Metals
King Midas Stay Stacking Bucks
All the way to the banks, yo, I laugh it up
Precious
Metals
The Gold Standard, the Platinum Touch
But got Iron to ratchet up

(chorus)
I’m here to shine so I bring the Precious Metals out
You want what’s mine so I bring the heavy metal out
Shell casings are silver and gold
So tell me what’s the price of your soul

Precious Metals

Buzzworthy – The Stunning Beeboy

buzzworthy

 

 

 

I’M COMING for that crown watch out King Midas
shut you down like your block is indicted
Golden Touch? My bee sting keep you swollen up
Beat so much you wish heaven’s gates open up
Mogadishu, I’m calling you out
Gonna need a big stretcher when they haulin you out
You hold canons, I’m focused like a laser beam
I’m nightmare fuel – the reason you’re afraid to dream
And that Fool Thug-O-Nomics – phony obnoxious
Can’t walk around the way without running your pockets
The other cats in you crew I at least respect
But your rep is more hollow than the chain on your neck
Sound Off sounding awful who else you got
like LL, looking for new bells to rock
When I spit always got Jew-ells to Drop
Can’t stop till I take all of you’ze  fellas spots
