Dirty Drumz -


All the world wants is some dirty ass drums
We stand where we stand and we don't plan to run

All the world wants is some dirty ass rhymes
C4 with the raw
We grenade with these lines

Verse 1 (Akrobatik)

Yo, give me a boom and a bit and strip it down
I’ll give my homie Lif a pound
ignite the mic and rip it down
We don’t clutter airwaves with insipid sounds
I’m Akrobatik, known to flip around
Lyrics ’til they get renowned in your town, city, or commonwealth
Thirsty rappers - I’m suggesting that you calm yourself
You talk big but favor a leprechaun or elf
End of the day you’ll be calling to your Mom for help
But no maternal assistance
How can you pose resistance when you ain’t got a urinal to piss in?
My eternal mission: drop my gems and learn to live them
So rookies, please pull out your journals and listen
I’m giving seminars and lectures, drop bars with texture
Plus I am a beast so call a large professor
Dissertation on elimination
Thesis on the new Perceptionists releases - believe this!


Verse 2 (Mr. Lif)

Ya see the beat is kept minimal
Mad simple
I see you moving toward the mic
I'd trip you
The crowd don't need to hear that black
Not everybody could rap
Step back

Bear trap
Your bones snap
The stage, I own that
Now show me where another microphone at
So I can amplify
My chants will fly
And resurrect the brothaz out in Sudan who ain't have to die

Grab the sky
Show the land my command
The seas may weave through the leaves to expand
The manphibian lungs
I naturally adapt
Anything that disobeys the laws of nature is a wrap
So watch me mutate at a new rate
Legs, I grew 8
Peace as I teleport from here to Kuwait
The mineral rich soil could sprout new vines
Like the syllable rich rhyme could fertilize minds
