10 Highkey Fire Bars People Forgot About
*In No Particular Order*
Kid Cudi – “Just What I Am”
“Neighbors knockin’ on the door, asking can we turn it down?
I say, “Ain’t no music on,” she said, “No, that weed is loud.”
Jay Z – “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2”
“Cake, cake-cake, cake-cake, cake,
500 million, I got a pound cake, ni***s is frontin’, that’s upside-down cake,
Get ’em a red nose, they clown cakes, they shoulda never let you ’round cake,
Look at my neck, I got a karat cake, now here’s the icin’ on the cake,
Cake, cake-cake, cake-cake, uhh.”
Maxo Kream – “Hit Mane”
“Another day at work, I’m on alert, my celly chirp, new text alert.
Some kid was certain he’d give me fifty bands to have his father merked.
I took the money gladly, more than happy, cocked the ratty.
Sent his info, named was Bradley, put his addy in my nav-e.”
NAS – “Made You Look”
“Thug girl who fly and talks so nicely,
Put her in the coupe so she can feel the nice breeze,
We can drive through the city, no doubt,
But don’t say my car’s topless, say the titties is out.”
Montana of 300 – “Chiraq Remix”
“Hoodie on like a monk, I’m Boyz-N-Tha-Hood with that pump.
This bitch got kicked like a punt, it usually sit in my trunk.
But for today it’s riding shotgun since ni**as like to front.”
Divine Council – “Decemba (Remix)”
“Rob a ni**a, he won’t see my face like Wizard Kelly,
Spitting like Petrachelly, she wanna rub on my belly,
Asking me if we go steady, for this d*ck you ain’t ready,
Weighing in at 210, 6’3 tall, lil shorty this d*ck be too heavy.”
Kendrick Lamar – “Control”
“I’m usually homeboys with the same ni**as I’m rhymin’ wit. But this is hip hop and them ni**as should know what time it is,
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller. I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you ni**as.
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you ni**as. They don’t wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni**as.”
Hopsin – “Sag My Pants”
“Lately I been f**king pissed off (Why?)
‘Cuz everybody sayin’ Lil Wayne spits raw,
I’ll start a big brawl, and slam his ass into a brick wall,
And have a fat ni**a sit on him, Rick Ross (Boss!)”
Pimp C – “Take It Off”
“Got the V-12 Benz, parked outside,
It ain’t enough room to fit them gulls in my ride,
It’s on a, work something, twerk something basis,
Making big change, dancing in them tricks faces.”
RZA – “Stroke of Death”
“Smack the jail bail bondsman, strength of 18 Bronzemen,
Tall like Karl Malone, Mailman, frame of Larry Johnson,
Tony Montana blow, creamy white Havana Joe’s, Old Suzanna ho, pu**y sweet, banana flow,
David Banner, gamma-ray shots, beast will marinate, bones splitting, fatal Wu sword style will amputate.”
