    I'M JUST MORE HIP HOP THAN YOU!!
    By Unique


    2 Who it May Concern ...... For The Record

    I don't know when it was exactly,
    Maybe it was when you told me The Roots were wack,
    Maybe it was when you said Pras was the best Fugee,
    Or maybe it was when you told me
    you didn't know who Big L was,

    But I've finally figured it out:
    I'm more Hip-Hop than you.

    Yeah, it's true. It's finally come through. I'm more
    Hip-Hop than you

    I may have rocked t-shirts and jeans while you were balling out on
    name brands,
    I kicked it in Tivas while you went stompin' in your Air force Ones,

    But while you were on shopping sprees, I was buying vinyl
    When you bought guns and jewelry, I invested into savings bonds

    I was copping CDs while you were in the club
    Teaching myself how to recite Masta Ace lyrics from thin air while
    driving my Maxima
    -You know, the one with the big ass speaker,-
    While you were out buying 24s for your gas-guzzling Escalade

    I was studying Sugar Hill while you were thinking up words to rhyme
    with "Fendi", and "Gucci", and "Prada"

    I'm not saying I know Hip-Hop. I'm just saying…

    "Fuck keeping it old school," I just wanted to know where I came from
    `Cause anyone with a sense of history knows "No Big Daddy Kane"
    means "No Jay-Z"
    "No Run-DMC" means "No Slim Shady"
    "No Kool Herc and Grandmaster Caz" means "No Hip-Hop. Period."

    When you think about it, you can't even spell
    "Nelly" without two L's

    Besides, it costs $15 bucks to get in a club for one night where some
    asshole DJ
    ain't gonna play
    your fucking song no matter fucking what,
    whereas I could've just as well bought a copy of Afrika Bambaataa's
    Greatest Hits that I'd listen to for the rest of my life

    Because between the two of us,
    we both know men could give a hot fuck
    about what's spinning in the booth,
    the only reason guys to the club
    is to pick up women or to scoop sum fake .....

    Bitches. Skeeos.
    Chicken-heads. Booty hoes.
    That is, someone else's daughter or baby-mama.

    I'm not saying I know Hip-Hop, I'm just saying…

    While you were losing money paying child support,
    I was saving for studio time.

    Which is funny, because while you were macking broads,
    I was hustling me an education
    Trying to pimp me some scholarships

    While you were waking up next to strangers,
    I was striking conversations at industry and poetry slams.
    Doing parties and hittin shows meetin hip hop strangers
    While you were trying to burn some trees,
    I was pushing degrees
    But I've learned MCs aren't concerned really

    You see, being a DJ showed me that words do have impact,
    Unlike you, I want to testify through speakers
    opposed to preaching to the choir
    I wanted to improve my grammar so I'd actually be exact

    In short, I wanted to be able to spell the words you see

    I was saying between "fuck" and "shit"
    So don't be the one to look down on me
    Just because all the words I say in plural feel me
    don't have too end with dollar signs and Z's

    I'm not saying I know Hip-Hop, I'm just saying…

    I grew up listening to your favorite rappers'
    favorite rappers.

    I was peeping Shante' and MC Lyte when you said yo pleez
    I'm not "into" female MCs

    While you were aiming for the charts,
    I was cruising through sub-parts
    like House laced Hip-Hop,ya heard
    Acid Rap, and Spoken Word
    I was listening to Hip-Hop
    out about the beats used by Koreans,
    About how Techno, R&B, and Hip-Hop merged to create
    Two-Step in Britain
    And how incidentally, Two-Step artists who come to the states and "Go
    Hip-Hop" are considered sell-outs

    Because "Hip-Hop's so thirty years ago"
    I guess that's a nice way of saying I'm stuckin the past.

    Of course, now that weve lost all our producers,
    You want to borrow my records to search for some fresh samples
    It's bad enough you're not a jack of any trades, but it helps to be
    the ace of one
    And I'm not saying I know Hip-Hop,
    I'm just saying you need to get your priorities straight

    'Cause I was busy perfecting the slickest mind
    Capable of kicking the most intricate and wickedest rhymes
    Freestyling lyrics designed in the quickest nick of time
    While you were out getting higher
    than picket signs in the summer of `69

    `Cause I know how to LEAN BACK
    But DON'T PUSH ME, `CAUSE I'M CLOSE TO THE EDGE
    and a HARD KNOCK LIFE
    doesn't move in SLOW MOTION
    So READY OR NOT, HERE I COME
    you can HATE ME NOW
    but I'm STILL NOT A PLAYER

    Yeh? Well I'm more progressive trance than you because I was listening to mutha fucking Opus III and no one else even knew what "It's a Fine Day" was until ATB made that retarded Ibiza-tan-fake-boobs remix.

    I'M JUST MORE TECHNO THAN YOU!!
