released August 9, 2016

'Diggin It Up...
Well, I'm like kamasutra, I'm in pain
Peanut m&m, thug rot brain
President priss, pristine and bliss
Poppin polly over molly all in this
Key the legend of the sport dash car
Cue John Legend, on guitar
Piece of jolly oh back, coddle twenny ol sack
Mind playin, I keep it on track
I ain't got blisterin, no technique
Whatever my mind will speak
Ain't it got soul, ain't it got rhythm
To be in the game, ya gotta be with em
Smashin mike's hard all over the floor
Old man telling stories of war
Complicated half a pack, no tell lies
Chardonnay, hard on a little bitch size
People keep foll'in the dog track
And y'all wonda why ya ain't come back
Ya gotta keep runnin from ya old man's fear
Part of me said it like I'm all ready here
Packin hungry punches, you ain't got blow
Bet ya over dirt, ya learn to sow
Devil hittin dimes like ya know he would
He still got room in the back of the hood
Tell ya mom ya gotta mediocre migraine
Tell ya back, ya gotta stop portin Fort Wayne
I got one question, asked it now
True one is test, take a bow...'
'Grand Whole Tour...
I feel the beat right on
Just a pushin man understand hell is gone
I gotta beat less rat snack two inch alligator
Like his potatoes as a potater
Got grandma damn in a jam with Pam
Pam wham ram Mary's little lamb
You gotta take yourself out the old man's feet
Call yourself pretty but not petite
Gettin ticked like a clock rolling sick no tock
Got apple twosome ain't a bunch of poppycock
Membrane filler in the water with the rest
Eagle dancer necromancer in his little nest
Rolling on molly in a Coupe DeVille
Say ya ain't sorry but ya hope it's kill
Dancing hungry ashtray, bitches in a lap
Bitches doin cornrows, elevate a cap
Coppin' every after heavy deuces ready
Loppin steady ever Betty loosest ketty
Like a cat
Like a cat
Ya dot on run like you ain't got that
Stupid dick ever bitch park bit who the sick
Tockin down time to the very last tick
Singin sit half chat in an elevator
Death lit bat cat on a train beta
Lookin for a dimebag sent it my way
People drinking kool-aid, have it today
Hate it lace it decorate it
Who the bitch who separate it
Blockin out mind and a rude mean comin
Taking out sweets from my deposit
Putting them back into my closet
Who thinks doin an amount a day
Take away time in a very short way
We gotta do something
We can't just leave him here
We gotta take him somewhere
We gotta take him home
Where he belongs
Back again 'fore the thrill
Trippin heavy balls on the window sill
Taking itchy after scratchy ain't got side
Bitch's happy and is sappy on the riptide
Tulane insane Romaine who sang
Little itty bitty man no putang
On the water by the boat, whale who say
There ain't no wave won't crash today
Sittin in confinement for the rest of my life
Gimme half an anagram, a cool red knife
Titties on a boar and an old french whore
Old spice look nice the grand whole tour
Dish soap pencil and a new utensil
Nintendo for my friend Luke Wetzel
That's all she wrote, ain't no book in the back
Stepped on the floor on a damn thumbtack.'
