    Hey Lars, how do you make any money if you give away your mixtape for free?

    [Beat Drops]

    [MC Lars:]
    I'm really glad you asked Ollie. We've got T-shirts they're...

    Black and Yellow [x4]
    Uh Huh you know what they are
    Black and yellow [x4]

    [Part 1]

    [MC Lars:]
    My boy Front is always managing his vocal tapes
    Playing up his nerd persona
    Everyday he integrates
    You wanna hear a rap about a game from '82?
    Good News!
    MC Frontalot's got songs for you
    Full of rhymes that he drops
    Pretty hot, Make em rock
    With the style he concocts
    Nerdcore hip-hop
    Flashlight on his head
    Cause home boy went and started it
    Grabbing your allowances
    He knows how to market it

    [MC Frontalot:]
    My Man Lars
    Has got good talent and flaunts it
    And he drops fat hits every one-hundredth concept
    The onset of his rapping is blunt
    It beats you up in the manner
    That he calls "post punk"
    You know the fans can't get enough
    Always Holler for more
    Think they're even louder than were before
    The previous encore
    Just hope they let him off stage soon
    My whole business in the back
    Where the hoodies are strewn
    Come on

    [Chorus]

    Yea Bro
    We got T-shirts, and they're
    Black and Yellow [x4]
    Yeah Dude, Different colors
    Such as
    Green and Purple [x4]
    This is indie Rocket science
    And it's
    Horris Records [x4]
    Good luck, chasing royalties
    Mr.
    Wiz Khalifa [x4]

    [Part 2]

    [MC Frontalot:]
    You try to sell music
    They look at you funny
    It's not a transaction that necessitates money
    Not with the true cunning of the kids in the know
    But you look at them cheering
    Notice what?
    They don't sew
    Don't go to the print shop
    And silkscreen their own
    Yet they're always needing something
    To cover the torso
    That's why MC Lars and I
    Provide a product
    Set a top high fashion inventory

    [MC Lars:]
    You got it
    Costume glasses, Mouse Pads
    Robot USBs
    Captains are we
    (Of what?)
    Industry
    Roccafella, Adam Smith
    Rocket seller, just like this
    Rock a crowd of rowdy kids
    So Frontalot tell me this
    Is it all about the Washingtons
    Or all about the art?
    Indie rap, we're into that
    Following our hearts
    But part of the job
    I mean the other part from caring
    Is taking T-shirt money like we're
    Modern robber barons

    [Chorus:]
    Yea Bro
    We got T-shirts, and they're
    Black and Yellow [x4]
    Yeah Dude, Different colors
    Such as
    White and orange [x4]
    This is indie Rocket science
    And it's
    Horris Records [x4]
    Good luck, chasing royalties
    Mr.
    Wiz Khalifa [x4]

    [Part 3]

    [MC Frontalot:]
    We know every fabric weight
    Every drop ship price
    Every line screen density
    Designs are precise

    [MC Lars:]
    Cotton woven so nice
    Blind eyes to child labor
    You as the consumer are the lucky money savor

    [MC Frontalot:]
    And we savor all your savvy
    As it leads you to our wears
    Up in the gilded age of geekery
    We so sneakily prepared
    This fool-proof method
    Making just the shirts you want
    With my top hat and my monocle
    And your money I abscond

    [MC Lars:]
    You see Horris Records harvesting the
    Forest near your home for
    The paper in the liner notes
    Of every disc you own
    You should've known that our sweatshirts
    Were pure baby seal
    Go ahead and treat yourself
    You love the way it feels

    [MC Frontalot:]
    The appeals of the audience

    [MC Lars:]
    Get back on stage
    Where you at?

    [MC Frontalot:]
    By the Merch booth
    Trying to get paid
    Got a hundred people covered

    [MC Lars:]
    Though their arms stay bare

    [Lars & Frontalot:]
    The only way we get to do it
    Check the logos they wear!
    Because

    [Chorus]

    Guess what?
    At the merch booth...
    We got
    Shirts and Hoodies [x4]
    Please stop come and buy stuff
    We need
    Health insurance [x4]
    This is indie rocket science
    And it's
    Horris Records [x4]
    Apologies, for ruining your track
    Mr.
    Wiz Khalifa [x4]

    [Frontalot & Lars:]
    My man Lars is in the
    T-shirt business

    My boy Front is in the
    T-shirt business

    Look at us we're in the
    T-shirt business

    I thought we were musicians
    What is this?

    MC Lars is in the
    T-shirt business

    Frontalot is in the
    T-shirt business

    Both of us are in the
    T-shirt business

    I thought that we were rappers
    What is this?
