lyrics

Verse 1
Good mourning pupils'
I know you're nervous on your first day
But let me introduce myself
I'm, A.K.!
Or Mr. AdeKwit, it doesn't really make a difference
What I need you all to do is sit down and pay attention
My first question.
Is what's a Rapthematician?
Show of hands
If you answer wrong it won't land you in detention
Neither will your responses get dismissed, man
Let's make mistakes
You in the back row
What's you're name?
"It's Tray!"
Just remember, your answers are all subjective
Expressing your views doesn't mean they'll get respected
"A Rapthematcian's somebody that loves to rap!"
Are you sure?
"Mr. Davis, I guarantee that's a fact!"
I nodded my head in agreement
I saw another hand raise up
I was so proud what I was seeing
This could probably make the conversation get a bit deeper
I wish I had this type of experience with my teachers

Chorus
What's a Rapthematician?
Someone that brags about their ammunition?
Or somebody that just loves spitting?
What's a Rapthematician?
A rapper talkin' bout the crack they pitching?
Or an Emcee with lyrical ambitions?
What's a Rapthematician?
I need to know is it about the raw flows?
Or how much money ya getting?
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)

Verse 2
What's your name?
"It's Kiesha, I'm just saying"
"If you ain't making money why the fuck are you playing games?"
I hear what you're saying
Can you explain that in depth?
"I just mean, what is the point if you ain't making check?"
You in the front row!
"Mr. Davis, my name is Kev"
"And I agree. Isn't the point about making that bread?"
Where did you get that from?
"That's what the videos said, and the radio too..."
And I was shaking my head, like damn...
So misguided
My opinions are subjective too
Don't want to force my views
Kids are impressionable
This ain't a group think class
Should I just give them a pass?
I bet it would be easier if I were teaching math
Then a girl busted out and laughed
"I'm Raquel, and I'm an avid lover of rap"
"Whether it's the trap tracks or the classic boom bap"
"I can't stand an artist that would sacrifice their craft just to make cash"

Chorus
What's a Rapthematician?
Someone that brags about their ammunition?
Or somebody that just loves spitting?
What's a Rapthematician?
A rapper bragging bout the crack they pitching?
Or an Emcee with lyrical ambitions?
What's a Rapthematician?
I need to know is it about the raw flows?
Or how much money ya getting?
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)

Verse 3
What about lyrics?
Kiesha said "Why should that even matter?"
"I just listen to the beats, not the rest of the chit chatter..."
"As long as the hooks tight and my heads able to bop..."
"That alone lets me know that the music is top notch."
Please stop!
Yes, you in the middle row.
"I'm Jacob, and I'm intrigued with profound lyrics and flows."
So, lyrics matter?
"Yes and no... It all depends on what your lyrics about when you open your mouth."
"If I want to be preach to, I would just go to church!"
"That's like saying you value Van Gogh's name and not his work..."
"Beats provoke emotions, that leave you totally open, to discuss intricate topics that's not usually spoken"
"I don't want to hear about the world's problems"
"My life's already tough, to have to hear a rapper always dwelling on stuff"
Alright, kids! That's enough, I'm glad we all took a stab at this
Now open up your books
And welcome to Rapthematics

Chorus
What's a Rapthematician?
Someone that brags about their ammunition?
Or somebody that just loves spitting?
What's a Rapthematician?
A rapper bragging bout the crack they pitching?
Or an Emcee with lyrical ambitions?
What's a Rapthematician?
I need to know is it about the raw flows?
Or how much money ya getting?
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)
What's a Rapthematician? (Huh huh?)
