lyrics

Verse 1:
Man I've got everybody asking 'when you gonna make it'
what happened to that kid from carpe diem named basic
like I heard you opened for some big names, you should be famous
why are you still rapping in your basement and nobody can name you
where's the record deal, could you pay for my meal
man don't get too close but I just want you to feel
that I don't want to be making club jingles for singles to mingle
while they're just eating some pringles, showing dimples, thinking my music is simple
just really depends on what you're in to
been through but some people still have a dim view
that's why I don't cus in my music to knock stereotypes
still get your stereo hype, when you hear it you're like
oh man the kid ain't nas but he's alright
the kid doesn't bark a lot but the kid's all bite
and like a nerd without a date, this song is just another single
yeah but still I've got everybody asking

Chorus:
This and that
this and that about me and rap
man I've got everybody asking "are your laces still loose?"
well of course man but still I've got everybody asking
everybody's asking
let me hear you say everybody's asking
whoa, everybody's asking
check it, check it

Verse 2:
I've got them asking why I lack swag and don't rap about being the fliest
it's cause I'm focused on getting more skill and rising like gas prices
that's nice kid but you sound like a black vanilla ice
we need mainstream songs that sound kind of tight
what na man mainstream is too scary
trying stay chill and maybe be the king like larry
got my dreams a twitter account just so I could follow them
shooting for the stars but land on the moon like apollo man
hear my song playing like man that's me
they say not too catchy, needs work if you ask me
but I'm not trying to be who I'm not, why lie
just trying to connect with these people sort of like wi-fi
they say the grass is always greener on the other side
that is just another lie, it's green where you water it and just mow it right
and my lawn looks perfect but that's just me
but still I've got everybody asking

Chorus:
This and that
this and that about me and rap
man I've got everybody asking "are your laces still loose?"
well of course man but still I've got everybody asking
everybody's asking
let me hear you say everybody's asking
whoa, everybody's asking
check it, check it

Verse 3:
I've got them asking why I'm rocking it, popping it, never stopping it, topping it
asking why I'm an optimist, and how I get more hands up than octopus
obvious, just a bunch of talkative kids
new school making provocative hits, that's it
we're getting more buzz than a bee getting a hair cut
but people still won't listen cause the radio won't air us
fair enough, we're not making that revenue
so forget what we're telling you
but still I've got everybody asking

Chorus:
This and that
this and that about me and rap
man I've got everybody asking "are your laces still loose?"
well of course man but still I've got everybody asking
everybody's asking
let me hear you say everybody's asking
whoa, everybody's asking
check it, check it
