Riff: Busdriver – “Ego Death”

Jun 19, 2014

The fact that this pony show’s racist/Stirs the colloquial cake mix and charges the homeostasis/Of all the homies who await us like we some Smokin’ Joe Fraziers/But my unchecked whining’s like some ceremonial plate shift

from Ego Death lyrics by Busdriver

A Mary Shelley of a track bringing together a twisted group of madcap lyricists all of whom have vendetta on their mind. The beat twists and turns like a sadistic contortionist, and puts hammer to nail in ways that make other inferior lyricists shudder. Those afraid of unorthodox rap need not apply.
