Hit it

Pong, Don Simone on the microphone
You like the sound> Don't touch the bass, homes
Drop it, you can't stop it, you wish you would
'Kick it in the hood...- you never could
Good, better than bad, the new fas
But you 6-4 can never touch my Cad
The granddad, now you call me superior
You know my name, but me, I never hear of ya
Rid- R-i-d, now say it backwards
D-i-r, Director In Control Respective
You think you're rollin, jock holdin walkin around
But the T.R.I.B.E. rides deep, so deep you might drown
Now, you picked a letter
You picked the r, it's time to fade the trendsetter
Niever, I'm just too clever, cause I'm the Ganxta
To kill ya, you're the vermin, I'll drank ya
Intoxicated, r rated with the content
This one's so funky, gotta use it in my concert
You get hurt if you try to revert to any other
From the Six Bad Brothas

7 bad brothas
8 bad brothas
9 bad brothas

10, chin, you give the pin to the hench men
A kite was shot straight to the hit man
6 is better than 1
But Six Bad Brothas with guns
Packin 808 kick drums
Bad muthafuckas, six wanted hustlers
Down for the count, we kill you with a muffler
Silence- they said real bad boys move in silence
The the hard loud ones are more violent
I keep strollin couse of the mic I'm holdin
16 deep, so you know we rollin
Doin it like gangsters, rollin like stars
Busters beat up girls and tuck behind the hard
Hardcore, identical to the last one
All you can do is make beer runs
You got it like this, we got it like that
Man, y'all ain't be got no gat...
Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. is the winnin team
(Why you say that?) Cause we get the loudest scream
So hold your bitch tight, cause we're all fighters, not lovers
Yeah, Six Bad Brothas

7 bad brothas
8 bad brothas
9bad brothas

(Ooh, that's funky, mama)

Godfather, you think they can get with T.R.I.B.E.?

Na, na,na,na,na

Tell em T.R.I.B.E.

Na, na, na, na, na

Godfather- a bad brotha
(King Roscoe)- a bad brotha
(K.O.D.)- a bad brotha
(E.K.A.)- a bad brotha
(O.M.B)- a bad brotha
Ganxta Ridd- a bad brotha
and to the T.R.I.B.E.- some bad brothas
Word to the brothas

I don't need an application for this rhyme creation
A boo-yaa to ya with the rhyme reputation
Multiple like a fly, opponents realize
6 bad brothas finna energize
??? rhyme sayer is what you wanna be
I said a rap, he was crap, sounded more like a summary
O is on the go, known to be a bragger
Goin straight to all you posses like a 12" dagger
Suicidal, emotion will result in disgrace
A rhyme sayer, a player simply settin the pace
Temperature flare to a certain degree
And like a cold we got symptoms inside you will see
Now our dry cell analyzed, we can't be defined
Coordinated, updated with the one-track mine
Yo, the mine (what is the mind?)
The mind is a tool that make busters go blind
Manipulator, fader, perpetrator hater
Innovator, debater, operator, calculator
Rap schooler, and there ain't no cooler
When it comes to MC's, Boo-Yaa the rap rulers

1 bad brotha
2 bad brothas
3 bad brothas
4 bad brothas
5 bad brothas
6 bad brothas

That's all it takes, homeboy

(Ooh, that's funky, mama)

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
