about

Being a starving artist sucks most days. But dammit if it doesn't make for good inspiration. And D&B KILLZ!!

lyrics

Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty

Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty
Tastefully tasty

Hook
I could be the only queer rapper with a conscience
Cuz I own it
I wear it with a badge of honor
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And it don't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it

Better switch it up when I drop, I does this
Tastefully tasty
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And you can't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it

Breakdown
I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock like Bill Laswell

I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock like Bill as well

1:
I don't own an aviary homie
So I never cared for a bird that pigeonholes me
I am Lyte as a rock
STILL CAN'T HOLD ME
Cuz I got gigawatt knowledge IN MY HOLDINGS
Who the hell you supposed to be with corroded gold teeth?
Better just mosey
If you see me zoning
Ah Ah Ah
I never dwell in the throes of broke dreams
And I
Won't approach no goal with no scheme
Mostly, I unload the flow to blow steam
If you know me
You know I like Cheddar with roast beef
I'm too busy being a Veteran
Collecting benefits to let a delicate minion interfere with grown folks steez
Booby Trap!

Hook
I could be the only queer rapper with a conscience
Cuz I own it
I wear it with a badge of honor
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And it don't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it

Better switch it up when I drop, I does this
Tastefully tasty
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And you can't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it

Breakdown
I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock like Bill Laswell

I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock like Bill as well

2:
Gotta be in it to win it
I'm on it like a hornet
When I get it, you got it
Get it got it the gone!
Cynically distressed
Chronically homeless
Clinically depressed
Serotonin zoning
I lack hosts to digest lactose
And I might be mad close to a mack that lacks hope
(*Hock*)
Coughing phlegm cuz I had a McFlurry
Stoned, rock bottom but absent of worry
My tennis shoes unclean
My funds fuel my dreams
Dingy 6-by-9s how I slumber in the New York scenes
Monthly checks blown the first week to keep it all alive
Subsidized rent and EBT get me by
If I don't fuck witcha
Don't make me go for the jugular
You have no function at my junction
With lyrics limp as erectile dysfunction
No further discussion, done!
Booby trap!

Hook
I could be the only queer rapper with a conscience
Cuz I own it
I wear it with a badge of honor
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And it don't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it

Better switch it up when I drop, I does this
Tastefully tasty
Why?
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
YEAH!
Cuz I own it
And you can't phase me
Why?
Cuz I own it



Extended Breakdown
I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock like Bill Laswell

I don't wanna live life paying bills
I need greenback bills
I wanna rock...
Gimme drums!

Gimme mo drums!
