Basic Rappers is a response to the mediocrity and lowering of the bar that this new generation of MCs has set. It's not so much a diss to them rather a call to step it up. Saying "Gucci Gang" through an entire verse doesn't count as bars.

The song is also just a tongue and cheek statement of"I'm gay and I spit better than most of these rappers out here today," not to perpetuate the stigma that LGBTQs don't have a seat at hip-hop's table, but to continue to challenge the status quo of rap and further push queerness and the LGBTQ into spaces that haven't always been kind to us.


I’m about to call the corners bitch / demons swarmin’ with their horns ’n shit / angels singin’ in their choruses / honey i’m bored as shit with all these tacky rappers rappin’ / cackle cackle then I slap them asses backwards / never knew a faggot rap like I’m rappin’ / I’m packin’ raps like I’m packin’ all your asses / I’m golden steady when I’m goin’ / hit ‘em with a flow ‘cause I’m so sick / y’all watch as I rock / curb stoppin’ your pops / pop lock then I drop like it’s ’06 / wanna test? I’m a throw fists / snatch your wig like some hoe shit / I’m the moon you a glow stick / you a fish I’m the ocean / my flow’s overdosin’ / motherfucker better realize I’m the omen / I’m a throw your ass off a banister / your days are numbered calendar / I was born with a 6 - 6 - 6 so you better not piss off my daddy bro / or my nanny bro / cannibal animal ramming you with a battering ram of a mechanical flow / killa trilla gorilla pillage your village / bitches wanna scrimmage but I’m pissin’ on all your wishes / oh so nasty flow so classy / bro I go from Gorgoroth blast beats to frozen slow trap creeps here I go / hoe so don’t ask me for no more laughing at you all / at my show gagging at my whole rap thing yes I know /

I am the best / give it a rest / you wanna test / take your last breath / All these basic rappers getting on my last nerve

My raps are never hit or miss / I always spit it ridiculous / and I could give a fuck if you can market this shit it’s / never stoppin’ get heads bobbin’ i’m on a roll rockin’ plottin’ every little wiggle of rhyme and syllable time / line droppin’ pop ’n lockin’ verses / reverse curses some merge and some hurt birth a verse words disperse / fly high like some birds swerve / i’m perverted with my flow it’s dirty I murder all these / MCs with my left, right, hook / cannot stop me I’m tight look / Kareem Abdul Jabbar sky hook / but when the rain falls down all around and darkness consumes my soul I drown / downward spiral viral infection resting in the anti blessing / confessing nothing in my chest is the pumping / of a heart that want’s nothing / but to feel something other than anger and fear / years after years tears smear down my face clearly / there’s something wrong up in here / in my head I need help dearly / I’m merely a man in my mouth I can taste it / this is the real me open your mind and embrace it
