uh
Hes mean and vicious
I cant believe hes that rude
To those stories those rhymes that Jew
Then he put 'em on the flo' like cat food
And put 'em on the track like glue
Then put 'em on your head like hat
Hey back to you Lu black power
I'm just running with a barrel full of black powder
With a hole in it holding it wheezin' deep, breathin'
Running from the fire on the trail i keep leavin'
I cant shake it i swear its heat seekin'
I keep seekin' somewhere to hide from it duck and dive from it
But it keep keepin' up just when i think that i've done it
It keep sneakin' up
Oh leakin' barrel of black powder how that flame keep reachin' us
Just one of the long rendered extended metaphors of Lu's
This time I use an example of a fuse
to demonstrate how i cant lose
I would put it down but i cant due to the glue
that i used to fuse everything together
well i spilt some on my hands
and goddamn i might have to carry this forever
Well i'm crazy to the game till they bury me insane (It's mean and vicious)

Chorus:
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was prone to bang
doin' his thang doin' his thang
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was known to bang like
doin' his thang doin' his thang

Truthfully I have trouble with second verses
'cause the first one be so intimidating
It'd be bullyin' and pickin' on it instigatin'
pointin' out all the second ones limitations
like you ain't nothing but an imitation
like bits of bacon then it gets to chorus
and the beat to together then they all gang up on him and get to hatin'
but then around the 8th bar he tires
so they conspire and commiseratin' then he find his inspiration
to spar he takes a few seconds of judo lessons
sits back on beat then punches the guitar
they stand in awe like when did you write that
that ain't even right black
first verse already happened
so he don't have a chance to fight back
i like that
Abagnale Junior check me
you gon' respect me
a'ight Trakk listen to em feelin' himself
swagger up and a few adlibs to back it up
lets back it up
i think you've had enough
give me my mic' back
you ain't even write that
oh its like that?
track stop pumpin' till this nigga stop frontin'
yeah yeah now right back (It's mean and vicious)

Chorus:
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was prone to bang
doin' his thang doin' his thang
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was known to bang like
doin' his thang doin' his thang

Oh my god
my perils n my odds
I ain't really here what you hear is a mirage
This ain't the delivery baby this is just Lamaze
The ice cream and pickles then tickle and a massage
The king author rhythm of the knight eldibage
the camouflage water in the distance
floggin' a camel to get there wit the quickness
mean and vicious
grinch who stole Christmas and hid it in the garage
that was a collage a barrage that brought all things that seem keen to help this thing start
jump jump, my battery charge
i'm bout my green like string beans and beings from Mars
its a mean thing to be seen with ours
got that FNF on me i'm a young lil thriller
i will resurrect homie come back for my killa
in some disheveled apparel with that same leakin' barrel its on (It's mean and vicious)

Chorus:
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was prone to bang
doin' his thang doin' his thang
There once was a boy that grew up on the west side
Of Chicago liked his hat to the left side
Wasn't in a gang but he was known to bang like
doin' his thang doin' his thang

(It's mean and vicious)

    General CommentWow, no one?

    That second verse is probably the greatest second verse ever written.

    has any1 ever picked up on this?? part of the cool story? maybe. in the end of "the cool", (the song, not the album), lu says that the kids that rob the cool had the same gun that he was killed wit. so maybe he somehow gets the gun from them, and "with that same leakin' barrel, its on", and he kills his killas??


    for some reason, i think theres gonna be a new character introduced on "lasers". in real recognize real, the last verse is about "righteousness". so maybe righteousness is gonna be like the superhero type character that can beat the game and the streets.?? lupe could take this story wherever he wants. lupes the g.o.a.t!! FNF UP!!
