Riff: LIV – “Sorry Ms. Carter”

Aug 8, 2014

Got my name in the news saying things I ain’t do/Side chick never, mistress who/Y’all misinformed, got it misconstrued/Be a lonely chick before I be a number 2

from Sorry Ms. Carter lyrics by LIV

There’s no sense in admitting to something you didn’t do, but that doesn’t stop some people from capitalizing in every way possible – especially with the names involved. It’s clear that no one knew what the hell they were doing here, it’s just a tragedy that Outkast had to be dragged into all this.
