    A ***** told me the record company's the pimp
    The artist is the hoe The stage is the corner
    And the audience is the trip, god damn

    (verse one) {:21}
    Incredible young *****
    You can't believe I'm just one *****
    God damn I've gotten bigger
    Intellect superior
    Walk in a room and make the whole interior inferior

    If you look me in my eyes
    You might **** around and loose control of your mind body and your soul
    Grab a hold
    Undisputed on the microphone, what you think
    If you wink, I'll make you extinct
    Did you blink, did you ever drink your own brain matter
    Shotgun enema, this ain't no cinema
    All praises due to the creator

    For this man here, that can't no ***** stand near
    True, inventor of the 'W'
    What You want to do, I got the red and the blue
    Show me one ***** dedicated to raps
    I'll show you ten *****s dedicated to snaps

    Record company death traps settin' decoys
    Just to pimp young b-boys
    With a cup full of yak, studio contact
    Maniac with a contract

    Well turn up the bass and the **********in' treble
    About to do a deal with the devil for my vocal level
    Bullshit points, plus he want to rub it in
    And take all my publishin', god damn

    Do i take it up the rectum
    Just to rock the spectrum
    Give up a right arm, just to do a form
    Hell no, all you ************s goin' leave this ***** limpin'
    No more, record company pimpin'

    No more (No more), record company pimpin'
    No more (No more), record company pimpin'
    No more (No more), record company pimpin'
    No more, no more, no more, no more

    You ain't pimpin' me (uh uh, uh uh)
    I ain't pimpin' you (uh uh, uh)
    I just want to be free (I just want to be free)
    So what we gonna do (can i holla at you, holla at you)

    You ain't pimpin' me (please listen to my demo)
    I ain't pimpin' you (please listen to my demo)
    I just want to be free (I just want to be free)
    So what we gonna do (can I holla at you, holla at you)

    I'ma keep it simple, it went from "please listen to my demo"
    To "get your *** out my limo"
    Stretch presidential
    It's essential 'cause the record company will have your *** in a rental

    If you let 'em, You have to behead 'em
    Contracts you never read 'em
    CEO's you never met 'em
    Sent to an attorney, Burnstein and Burney
    ***** that's his lawyer, ain't got nothin' for ya

    Treat ya like they employer, I'm a warrior
    Bite you in the *** like a Georgetown Hoyas
    When they ignore ya cause, you got to hold your balls
    Catch a ************ slippin' in bathroom stalls

    And then you show 'em that you ain't a rookie
    Let 'em know that you'd rather have, more points than more *****
    Pimp turned bookie
    Now how the **** I get in so much debt
    God damn, we just met

    He said, welcome to the rap game
    ************ be confused and broke before he know what's happenin'
    You can be the star and **** women
    I'm a just play the back and keep pimpin'

    No more (no more), record company pimpin'
    No more (no more), record company pimpin'
    No more (no more), record company pimpin'
    No more, no more, no more, no more

    You ain't pimpin' me (please listen to my demo)
    I ain't pimpin' you (please listen to my demo)
    I just want to be free (i just want to be free)
    So what we gonna do (i got to holla at you, holla at you)

    You ain't pimpin' me (uh uh, uh uh)
    I ain't pimpin' you (uh uh, uh uh)
    I just want to be free (I just want to be free)
    So what we gonna do (can I holla at you, holla at you)

    [Repeat: x 4]
    It went from please listen to my demo
    To get your *** out my limo

    [Outro]
    Mama's, don't let your kids grow up to be rappers
    Unless you tell them if they gonna get in this business
    They better learn this business
    Or they goan get ****ed
    Simple as that
    Simple as that
