Recorded and mixed @ apt 109 Arnaz Dr, LA, CA in October 1994. by Kurt Matlin
I made this one for the girls who come up looking for materialistic things (they ain't all that) and for women who'd rather see guys on a lower class state, b/c when they do come high (class) they don't know how to take it.-Keith
One day Mitch from Philly showed up in LA with his new artist Slim. Tony was the man who brought out one of my favorite groups; Tuff Crew. I produced a couple tracks with Slim, he had an animated voice and style Keith and I liked.-Kurt
Yo wassup this Slim, uh oh you don't know me now? So what, I..oh it's like that, Oh ok, ok I see that
I never thought that honey would be playin' I ain't wid it
Forget it, it really don't mean much for me to hit it
Check the resume, baby they don't call me slim for nothin'
Somethin' in her nature had me thinkin' she be frontin'
But last time I checked I had status but she thinks she's the baddest black,
And I ain't havin' that, dig it
Baby what's ya function, cuz I know you be watchin' me from a far
when i was coolin' at the bar
I am who I are, but I ain't a super-star
It's like I wasn't born yesterday, why you tryin' play
Now maybe if I kicked the dummy roll then
You won't be so cold on the shoulder, but now you best move over
Cuz I'm older then you think, think about it
But now you be the one that's lookin' dumb
So Keith give 'em some
Keith: Honey tell me wassup
Slim: Now girl why you frontin'?
Keith: Yeah baby, you just fronted on my man
I'm Keith with the ill pack droppin' funk out the Cadillac
Yo Slim tell her, she ain't fly need the glass eye
I can see the plastic she don't us a prophylactic
Hangin' out thinkin' she could meet Wesley
Super star movie star, she pulls up in the average car
A green Pinto, license plate say Sacramento
Who's the person in da club beggin' for a drink?
Givin' an eye wink to the brother with a gold link
Her friends lookin' at the parkin' lot the silver Benz
I'm a regular nigga I ain't got no ends
I must be bald look like Bozo The Clown
I'm not your average jerk, you need a job go to work
Chorus: (Repeat 6x)
Keith: Back again I'm here I still could be on welfare
You don't care walin' by, the wind blowin' in your hair
Lookin' for Sylvester, Arnold Schwarzenegger
A Rolls Royce parked, you left your man in his Vega
What kind of class did your mom teach ya home training?
You walkin' home tonight, awe man it's rainin'
Slim: But don't blame the rain because you're weave is loose
And your nails are pressed-on cuz yo i got the juice
To get another one that looks just like ya
So I don't really sweat the situation, cuz girl you got me basin'
But how ya like me now, now you know what's goin' on
I'm not a trick, not a sucker, not a slip word it born
Your game is mad young for a second
I can see if you were maybe 16, you be trippin' nah mean?
But Hey it's your life you can choose who you wanna
But I'm gonna get to goin' cuz I'm knowin' how ya flowin'
Ya flowin' is a joke, ya program is broke
So peace girl, I'll see ya on a later note (laughing)
Chorus: (Repeat 8x)
Slim: Yo Keith let me tell you, I was cold swingin' it with baby girl in the club right,
but don't you know here comes Charles Barkley messin' my groove all up
She runnin' over to Chuck because is Benz is silver and my Mazda's green
But that's all cool though because I wasn'r givin' a five cent for cheese on a Big Mack, it's all good yo ceck this out here...
Keith: Man I was pulled up man with my black rag-top in my orange volkswagen man with my little mag rims, man nobody looked at me
Kool Keith began his rap career with the group Ultramagnetic MCs. After the release of Critical Beatdown, Thornton was
reportedly institutionalized in Bellevue Hospital Center. However, he later said that the idea that he was institutionalized came from a flippant remark made during a stressful interview and he never expected the story to become so well-known....more
