lyrics

Chorus
Fake rollies and rap x3
Who got time for all that?
x2

Breakdown
The chronicles of a non-chronic chronic fool
Conical cap, back corner of the classroom
Tryna keep cool, I tryna look kinda cool
But I grew up sheltered, never knew that I'm never-nude

Verse 1
Is it cool if I'm honest, no irony for a minute
I know that I sound cooler if I lie and say I'm
Something that I'm not, but that's someone that I'm not
I had some rhymes like that a while back, but they got ripped and tossed out
I started music long ago so I could floss out
But between kickin kitchen raps up in my mom's house
And moving to LA to do this music, that got crossed out
Checked the bar codes on my bars, I know my cost now
A combination that is #VeryRare, Asian hair
plus the kind of Jordan sneakers that I wear
Rarely seen, often parodied like MadTV
White Men Can't Jump - the Oriental version
Expected to lie like rugs, except they're often Persian
I'm not Tyson, but give me a mic stand and I can bite the ear off anybody, that's my word and if you haven't heard of me yet, uh you have now

Chorus

Verse 2
What does it say that I exist in present tense
When my presence tends to elicit bigot sentiments
Explicit comments that my essence is illicit and missing multiple pieces of soul found in Aretha
Rap swag is usually black or as white as Alaskan crab meat inside the shell when it cracks
So I suppose, I'm doomed to oppose or overthrow all the cracks at the types of melanin that I lack
Too white for the black kids - too white for the white kids
I guess my life is just not tight to the right kids
In other words, I'm faker than a Chinatown Louis V
Or the Tupac hologram Coachella speech
But I'm enveloped in rebellion and bow my knee
To nobody's opinion so I'll do me, just wait and see
So I wear this fake Rollie on my wrist to remind me that the people sayin I'm fake - they don't mean shit.

CHORUS

OUTRO
The chronicles of a non-chronic chronic fool
Conical cap, back corner of the classroom
Tryna keep cool, tryna look kinda cool
But I grew up sheltered, never knew that I'm never-nude
x2
