lyrics

[Scratch Intro: DJ Idlhnds]

[Pre Chorus: The Bad Tenants]
We stay grounded till we turn into stars
We out here K-T-G-F-R
We like the 19th amendment how we close down bars

[Chorus: The Bad Tenants]
We out here K-T-G-F-R
K-T-G-F-R, I said K-T-G-F-R
Killing The Game For Real
K-T-G-F-R, I said K-T-G-F-R
Killing The Game For Real

[Verse 1: DJ Idlhnds]
Square one. First dice roll
First enlightenment and I'm getting an eye full
We sped out the gate (with no rearview!)
So much determination though (Not fearful!)
Now the game's underway until The Tennies say we're finished
No canned veg got a bag of fresh spinach
And we possess an obligation to ourselves
To do what the fuck we love, regardless of the sales
Expect change, amendments to the rule book
Even lames commend us with a cool look
A slight head nod and a half grin
The ball bounces our way because we gave it some backspin
In a space that was incredibly blessed
I got a fat paycheck from the community chest (I'm Rich!)
Third roll was a three and six
Move a couple squares get it live in this bitch

[Scratch break: DJ Idlhnds.]

[Pre Chorus: The Bad Tenants]
We stay grounded till we turn into stars
We out here K-T-G-F-R
We like the 19th amendment how we close down bars

[Verse 2: Casey G]
Front lawn lounging like I'm king of the block
I got a scotch with ice sweating in a plastic cup
Got these fake Rays sporting like a million bucks
I got a big mouth but I got the flow to back shit up
I'm like Vesuvius, cool as shit, then suddenly blow
I'm like a student is, prudent, then I lose control
I'm your dream date with more swagger
Seemed safe, you know better
My scene-scape serene these things find me alluring
No mistake I kill games, I meet dames forget names
These homies for sure, should know, not to test me
STOP. Yo, I think I'm seeing red
Got this heavy fucking flow, by all accounts I'm undead
I'm the fox up in the coop, making mischief my plan
Because I'm sick of all these chickens acting like they went H.A.M
Whole squad ill-themed. Seems the time is at hand
Go nuts, fuck it up, wile out and tell them what we do

[Verse 3: Good Matters]
I'm rap Hell's Kitchen. Top Chef. What up birds?
Cook a hot flow, even Ramsey's flustered
Spicing up the flavor like Chinese mustard
The sounds taste so good, lean back, well fuck sir!
It's all in the ingredients list, not only plead, but insist
I need a quarter-inch to XLR and drink in my fist
Don't like repeating this ish and I'll be needing it quick
I got a show to rock and here you are impeding my shit
Well I'm sorry, didn't mean to get cross
I get a little out of sorts when it's about to set off
It's too hot in the kitchen, you need to get lost
We the line chefs quick and flippin the burgs at the bar
We the servers, the ferver is taking the crowd
Quick learners, you heard, now you singing it loud
It's a hook so catchy sung behind the bar
Say it with me now K-T-G-F-R

[Chorus: The Bad Tenants]
We out here K-T-G-F-R
K-T-G-F-R, I said K-T-G-F-R
Killing The Game For Real
K-T-G-F-R, I said K-T-G-F-R
Killing The Game For Real

[Scratch Outro: DJ Idlhnds]
