  • If it ain't fresh then you ain't gettin' play in my tape deck
    Way back, I used to rock the hat with the suede strap at ABC's
    Bought my food from the Arabs
    Played craps on corners where the OG's slang at
    Cross colors I'm the boss of the playground
    I hit you on the nuts 'cause I know how to play house
    The 8-ounce baby from '84 to grow up
    Cleaner than my Easter suit was with my shoes buffed
    Don't step on my new ones
    These Reeboks beat blocks, you give 'em a few pumps
    Baby while you're at it too boo boo
    She came from a new school and all I wanna do is my zoom zoom
    My uncle stayed faded like crew cuts
    But I was just too young to know the what's-what and the who's-who
    'Round here, they could give a fuck if you got props
    You get clowned for rockin' British Nine to the sock hop

    The BK stood for "black kids, " the hood was crackin'
    And Poison was on everybody's tracklist
    Spandex was in fashion, back then
    And bad chicks had tracks in that lasted

    Before CD's, and internet the kings was in effect
    You fiends wasn't gettin' respect
    Before MP3s and CD-J's we pop in a tape cassette
    Chain on my chest, I'm fresh

    Let's take it back, b-b-b-back to the days of AC/DC Back in Black
    Gimme a mullet, a 1984 Chevrolet
    Alright I'm lyin' I was listenin' to rap

    OshKosh B'Gosh, stone wash, so hard
    Overalls hung, one strap on, one off
    Eatin' on my cold lunch, grabbin' on both nuts
    Mom I want a jerry curl; fuck this bowl cut
    Ice cube's got one
    Quick in my walkman
    Blowin' on the cartridge
    Hypercolor: "awesome!"
    Cube's in my pocket and I'm outta here
    I'm bouncin' and Sam Goody's not gettin' shit from my allowance

    Day dreamin' in class, know I'm zonin' out and
    Rosie Perez's titties are right where my mouth is
    Who says that white men can't jump? They were hella wrong!
    A'ight they were right, but I was really good at tetherball

    Before the days of gettin' drunk at kegs
    We were bumpin' some jodicie and dry-humpin' legs
    That's right: I was born in the '80s
    Pimpin', adventure shined upon my babysitter

    House party? crackin.
    Humpty dance? crackin.
    Never find the baby: David Bowie, Labyrinth.
    Why don't you reminisce and bring it back, rap shit
    Dodge caravan, humpin' in the back: classic.

    Before CDs and internet the kings was in effect
    You fiends wasn't gettin' respect
    Before MP3s and CD-Js, we pop in a tape cassette
    Chain on my chest, I'm fresh
