[Intro] Car Test... The final stage of Hip Hop production Playing music on car speakers to ensure it bumps heavily And slaps sufficiently Asserts that lyrics invoke feeling instead of heavy thought Giving the listener an escape from the ills of the world on a given commute [Chorus] Oooh that's too conscious! That don't pass the car test! Oooh that's too positive! That don't pass the car test! Oooh that's too conscious! That don't pass the car test! That don't pass the car test! LISTEN TO WHAT HE REALLY BE SAYIN!!!! [Verse 1] Oooh...Holdup it's ok we cool calm down what you saying dude Yeah I appreciate you too But the way you feel about this music is the way I do But I got these plates to move Had to make some changes too. Badu call it frequency. Some just say the way they move I ain't make this wave for youths But it jams in case they do Find me in the sea of other rappers and they play a few, Like em, put em on repeat so I get that payment through That's the truth [Chorus] Oooh that's too conscious! That don't pass the car test! Oooh that's too positive! That don't pass the car test! Oooh that's too conscious! That don't pass the car test! That don't pass the car test! PLEASE TELL ME THIS AIN'T WHAT YOU BE SAYIN!!!! [Verse 2] RVS you be spittin' So now you chase what's trendin'? You have gotta be kiddin'! Never thought I'd see the day when you would ditch the written To pander to these children Man that's unforgiven (Ay I got mortgage dog) And you got a renter Can't believe you'd compromise yourself for a few pennies Guess if you gon' get it, just get back to the art tho... Hmm...now I'm kinda listening, this beat is kinda hard Bro! Naw, it's d0pe Hmmph I don't care what yall be sayin I aint playin RVS in my car He be rappin too much

Erick Sermon, Lord watch over Parrish Smith, Lord watch over Folks still falling for that crossover like... Whatever you want Whatever you need Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you Whatever you want Whatever you need Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah) Make me wanna holler How they feel my life with drama Every since my dog Obama left the office it's been trauma And they say I should feel no pain But this music don't feel the same Everybody talking bout how much money they got  It sounds a little insane Everybody talking bout how many choppers they got It's sounding inhumane When these babies can't even make it to school without getting shot in they brain Music used to put everybody on game Now it's only about follows Influencers getting hollers And then barely making dollars Ooh! Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah) Everyday I'm hating Waking up and every station Sounding exactly the same with All these rappers riding waves when The whole country is racist. Well, that ain't ever changin The president is heinous and his followers just as brainless I ain't saying rap can change that But I thank back to the days that Rappers would rather explain facts On a tape, wax or ADAT Until sponsors would say that "If you like kicking that knowledge Come here and call it 'conscious' But I hear it won't make dollars" Whoa... Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah Yeah) Whatever you want (Ooh Ooh) Whatever you need (Ahh Ahh) Whatever you want, whatever you need I'm giving it to you (Yeah)

I should be itchin Listen I don't pay attention to these chi'rens Mainly cause I'm way too busy to really deal with All the feelings that I live with. Unforgiven. Could've done more with the business. Am I quittin? Nevermind because I... [Chorus 1] Might talk a lot of crap but I won't stall Might make a lot of moves but I won't fall. Not like a lotta dudes cause I don't lose And even if I do then I'm like Aight Cool What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Yeah...) [Verse 2] You would think I would learn my lesson  Talking bout following dreams and becoming legend But what happen when your dreams don't make no bread and Then you got a lot of steam and a lot of debt and Everybody cheering section, but ain't letting out their wallets And their time to show up lessens They'll just catch you at the next one. Ain't no next one It's a tragedy can you repeat the question? What we talking bout? [Chorus 2] ...oh yeah I won't stall Might make a lot of moves but I won't fall. Not like a lotta dudes cause I don't lose And even if I do then I'm like Aight Cool What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Aight cool!) What?! What?! (Aight fool!) What is he even talking about?! I don't know.

[Verse 1] Here's Mack... Street dude. Fully brash No stash. Only holding petty cash Type of cat, used to call em Thundercats Talk smack. Crumble when he under 'tack No lads. Ain't nobody got his back Get thrashed. Now he yelling "Run it back" Got a strap. No hands, gotta pack Oh crap! Whoop Whoop! Look at who is on his back... [Chorus] What would you do... ...You would do if it was you? What would you do... ...You would do if it was you? What would you do... ...You would do if it was you? What would you do... ...You would do if it was you? [Verse 2] Just listen really close so you don't miss it Officer Flemming Got a call that something's missing From a business in the "lighter" shopping district  Guess what? (What?) Mack is fitting the description (Man!) Mack stiffens. Streets talking and he listens Alibi. Streets say "No Snitchin!" Then Flemming runs up on Mack trippin Agressive with him. See he got a Mac with him Get on the ground and then put the gun down what you better do I ain't done nothing the gun ain't up. Hey who you threatening dude? Great business owners have the right to not see the likes of you I ain't no booster. Where's the rights I been entitled to? I bet you're a menace. Admit it that there was no badder dude You could go home if only could switch up his attitude Not tryna fight you. It doesn't matter what you tryna do If he doesn't matter to you, who does he matter to?

[Verse 1] Almost forgot about rappin Like I ain't always been the best at it Most of these posers chest crackin like a wrecked manne... Kin to them all. I swear there's no realness involved All of em oughta dance with Kiki. Their  feelings involved Stopped fishing for opinions. My pen has evolved Now I'm treating every beat like it witnessed a loss No pause. Every stage got grief. Ask if Ray got beast, l let me display my teeth. Askin if Ray got beats let me dismay yo speaks Ear worms for days that roam your brain for weeks Used to burn up pages now I swipe my speech Technology rise to start your vibe like yeast Got rhymes stockpiled so I display my feats Got the strength of a hustla they say I look like a thief Got the mind of a scholar, they say "I bet from your glasses" People trash then. Lost you doing all of this rappin [Chorus] But it's lit tho (Aye) But it's lit tho (Oh) But it's lit tho (Aye) But it's lit tho (Oh) But it's lit tho (Aye) But it's lit tho (Oh) But it's lit tho (Aye) But it's lit tho (Oh) [Verse 2] Got my mind off safety cause it's dangerous to be Educated and black. Since the beginning of T Well maybe not time. Colonization at least Got me going to war so I can say my peace But it's all good Chief because I write so ill No gimmicks are needed when you find this skill If you drum up drama, they ignoring you still Cause ignoring you's easy when they know you for real Ain't no use for that faking when they snooze on the funk Gotta layer that bass like ain't no use for your trunk Ain't no air is wasted cause I vet what I thunk Alvin Ailey these basics cause they move like a drunk Truthfully I ain't wasting no more clock on these bots Who would rather idolize thots but have not. If you holler, then you shot. Tuck your feelings away, Get money, love family, praise God er'day [Chorus] Cause it's lit tho (Aye) Cause it's lit tho (Oh) Cause it's lit tho (Aye) Cause it's lit tho (Oh) Cause it's lit tho (Aye) Cause ut it's lit tho (Oh) Cause it's lit tho (Aye) Cause it's lit tho (Oh) Yeah

about

“Car Test...
The final stage of Hip Hop production
Playing music on car speakers to ensure it bumps heavily
And slaps sufficiently”

Often in my conversations about Rap, people express that “conscious” music is cool, but they’re apprehensive about listening to it while riding around in their cars because it doesn’t slap as hard as “ratchet” music. Ain’t nothing wrong with wanting to hear a certain vibe at certain times, but when exactly did Rap splinter into separate categories between music that moves and music that provokes thought? 🤔

I know the answer to that (see “Crossover” verse 2 🤣), but table that for now. This EP slaps AND says something. You can bump this when you want to think AND vibe. And most of all, the sound has been optimized for playing in your whip!

So throw your mask on, observe social distancing and peep my new EP, Car Test!
