Track Name: Baduquai
Yo one of my crew's favorites bust an ill ass jam
When you hear us bust it you will be like "damn"
We bust ill barbecues with some roasted lamb
And then go hit the books because we got to cram
These rhymes comin so strong they hurt your stomach
Feel the bass line coming funky chony please bump it
I ain't civilized don't eat no english tea crumpets
My rhyme style is smooth I control it like a trumpet

Get down on the floor, leave your fears behind
let the rhythm take you there
you say "I don't know" but I say "make believe
dream look out from the window"

I'm an extroverted introvert whose put it on the line
Supporting melodies with dope rhythms and rhymes
Like a politician hustling I go door to door
Except the words I spit come from a source that's pure
Life keeps getting in the way of life
Key's finding peace amidst struggle and strife
People wanna know how I do it so fly
And I reply, "simple baby I'm just baduquai"
