VERSE 1

Hopsin told the truth and then called it a rap /
Cole sold 400 K in a week, with no flash /
In this environment, no singles and no promo /
Dipset for life, but goodnight to “no homo” /
I made a song to save the oceans, they even paid me /
And my old friend Fraud got the world saying “wavy” /
Haannn, Immortal Tech, standing with Nas and Common /
Plus the rest of New York, with Eric Garner beside em /
Uhhh…. Black Lives Matter /
And before it became cool, I was the Protest Rapper /
Run the Jewels, I refuse all slander /
I like Killer Mike, and Mr. David Banner /
I rap to make my Mom proud, she died of Cancer /
and I cried tears when I saw Shmurda on them cameras /
Iggy Izalea, we have no standards /
Kanye West, boy, mind ya manners… [continues in verse 2]

HOOK (2X)

It’s the headlines, the headlines, headlines in Hip Hop /
It’s the White girls, coopting, callin it pop /
And every publicist in the world, cant make your shit pop /
So pop off, and get offed or, make your shit hot.

VERSE 2 [continuation of verse 1]

… Please stick to rap, Hip Hop needs you /
White fashionistas superficial, they see through /
Rhymefest, Donda’s House, all about the people /
Don Lemon or Bill O’Reilly, who’s more lethal? /
New York, LA, Pittsburgh, Ferguson /
It’s one hood, Jasiri X, have you heard of him? /
Tef Poe on the frontlines, they’ll never murder him /
It’s about time, Hip Hop, is finally heard again /
I gave the world World View after 60 long months /
All the waiting and the holdups had em goin all nuts /
The fans rejoiced, got internet action /
I sold some albums, and kept em clappin / (uhhhh)
Released some singles, repeated some habits /
Caught beef with bloggers, theyr’e reactive /
I said I would quit, let’s see what happens. (Let’s see what happens. Let’s see what happens.)

HOOK (2X)

It’s the headlines, the headlines, headlines in Hip Hop /
It’s the White girls, coopting, callin it pop /
And every publicist in the world, cant make your shit pop /
So pop off, and get offed or, make your shit hot.
