about

This is a cover of a track by NoCanDo & BusDriver (Cali Hip-Hop) Shouts to my homie Preacher Vs. Choir out in Cali for hippin me to this track. I recorded this on Two Tracks of a 4-Track Tascam with a Boss ME-50 Guitar Pedal for my Vox after memorizing this verse just by hearing it a few times, I threw on a loop from an old Pizza Boys (Twin Cities, early 2000's) CD that I'm betting Doug Surreal (Cutty Dubs, Bay Area, Now) ripped off some old rock and or roll record.
NoCanDo & BusDriver's version is objectively "better" and also "OG", so read beyond all that and bask in a world where a Rooster in St. Louis can hear some Cali shit and like it so much he just records it on his day off from bein a fuckin dishwasher.

lyrics

These somehow aren't on "the internet". I never read them or confirmed 'em. Oh well, here's what i thought Jimmy the Lock said, Busdriver prolly wrote the chorus, and also has my favorite line in the whole song on his verse, "I'm Allen Ginsberg set to Bitches Brew" - real Hip-Hop shit:
Hey You, i gotta Two Track Mind,
So ya know, at times, i'm thinking of making love to You
and yr Two Track Mind,
and it's True at Times, i'm thinking of making love to You

and i ain't even at my Apex. Say i ain't Fresh
the Ladies Love Me so they sacrifice the Safe Sex
and i don't have Great Sex, Lady i gots Hella Sex
If She keep a Level Head then i'm a keep her Hella Wet
That's what i may've said, i'm a Bayonet
That's a Gun & a Knife, You should Run for Your Life
Close Quarters Yards Away, You know it is Hard to Say
My Strongsuit, and the Stratification of Rappers i belong to
and OH YEAH, Yellow Peanut Butter Brittle 5 times fast
OH YEAH, when ideas pop up in my head, i'm like OH YEAH
i like cash and PayPal, pay rent wit Freestyle
so i call it PayStyle, i'm so Spaced Out
no i'm not a hipster, i'm Rebel to the Marrow
Pedal to the Medal, need an Elephant Sombrero
cuz i'm So Big Headed, wearin African-American Apparel
in the Ghetto, but i don't get (SWAG?)

Hey You, i gotta Two Track Mind,
So ya know, at times, i'm thinking of making love to You
and yr Two Track Mind,
and it's True at Times, i'm thinking of making love to You

Rooster Jake Cohen performed solo as Barely Free in a set of the sort of music he might have as part of the beat for the hip- hop version of the outfit. And there was something great about seeing a guy wearing a Larry Bird jersey, a Moog hat, jean shorts and oddly patterned leggings manipulating samples, operating what looked like a modular synth and otherwise creating noisy yet melodic atmospheres ... more
