In the beginning was the hype,
the loud fanfare as I grabbed the mic.
Suckah M.C.'s stepped with no clout,
don't quit your day job or your paper route.
Fantastic and so spastic,
drop dope rhymes like sonic booms,
that's the kind of hype that could clear this room.

I got hype so big,
it's stacked so high,
other M.C.'s just stand and cry.
Brad slapped your Mama,
your Mama asked "why?"
When Brad says "hype",
you do or die.
Implausible, impossible,
we drop dope rhymes like sonic booms,
that's the kind of hype that could clear this room.

chorus
The packaging is nice,
we're building it to sell,
call all your people in Hollywood and Nashville.
It's one in a million,
in fact we broke the die,
it's all of the hype that your money can buy.

It's the fattest rhymes,
it's the hypest hype,
my name is Reese,
Don't call me Mike.
This song is good,
don't ask me why,
it's all the hype that your money can buy.
Falsified unjustified,
drop dope rhymes like sonic booms,
that's the kind of hype that could clear this room.

It's so wrong,
so far from true,
in secret,
I'm just like you.

    General Commentgret song definately, no one's mentioned what it's about, i guess it's pretty simple. It's kind of a sarcastic song saying, I can get all this hype and make you think i'm so cool, but i'm just like everyone else, i have the same problems you deal with, i'm no better than you are.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome. Its not exactly Christian in the sense that its all about God and Jesus but it still has a good meaning and awesome beat.

    General CommentNobody got the meaning exactly right. The first part and the last part of the song explane the everything.

    "In the beginning was the hype,
    the loud fanfare as I grabbed the mic.
    Suckah M.C.'s stepped with no clout [clout - hard hit of fight],
    don't quit your day job or your paper route.
    Fantastic and so spastic,
    drop dope rhymes like sonic booms,
    that's the kind of hype that could clear this room.".

    The first part is talking about how in the begining he put on this big show and everything, like everything he did was fake and had no truth behind it.

    "It's so wrong,
    so far from true,
    in secret,
    I'm just like you."

    And at the end he confesses that all of it was fake, how none of that was really him.

    I don't know the story behind this or why it was written, but I'm sure thats what it means.

    General CommentThis song is a parody of Rap. It has an almost-rap beat.

    "Brad slapped yo mama, you mama asked 'why?!' Brad said 'hype' you do or die"

    That is obviously parodying rap songs' idiotic lyrics.

    Basically, if you analyze the song, it is genius and hilarious.
