Don’t say you runnin’ things when you don’t ever run the mic
Gossip in the grain, I heard your girlfriend runs your life
And it dudn’t take a grapevine to see it,
But with you on stage it takes a few drinks to feel it

Matter fact, pass the jack, no chaser
Emcees like you make me wanna hit the mind eraser
I been runnin’ through the veins of the game like IV
You got words, you email’em then ya forward’em
I got words and I’ll take’em to your doorstep
Aside from that, what I’m sayin’s what I’m sayin’
And you didn’t hear shit ‘cos this ain’t a conversation

I watch sound engineers balance volume with love and hate
Between a slow kiss and a bruised face
Between a rock band and a fucked up place
Appreciation makes up for the lack of pay
And when it doesn’t, the truth gets questioned
The memory wears the heart empty to a weapon
It’s hard to make the call when Minneapolis doesn’t have the reception
I hung up before the disconnection- on tour
Rockin’ on that Casio
Rockin’ on that Casio
Rockin’ on that Casio
Rockin’ on that Casio
(Drissola Verse)


Crack-rock-smack talk you couldn’t back-up
Na homie, I don’t slang it, but I do crack rocks
You’re takin’ steps, but they ain’t in my direction
I’ll leave your crew more black and blue than Cadillac Records
So for the record while you’re singin’ “hands up”
I’ll be pissin’ on a parkin’ ticket while I smack cops
You don’t want a confrontation so you peaceful protest it
As I put the Molotov cocktail in your agenda

Yeah, your arm-chair’s liberal
I ain’t even got an arm chair in my living room
Get your goons, tell’em that the smoke break’s over
And I’ll give your job back when ya spend a day sober
This ain’t amateur hour, this is bar closin’
This ain’t your average Joe, this is the King Cobra
I run this Starship, you can tell your people
If they have any questions they can take it up with Johnny Rico

Got my enemies closer than two degrees
Told the chief if he needs back-up then he can google me
Now, you know enough to flush it through the gossip
Get back to work and get the hell out of my office

The Blend Minneapolis, Minnesota

A nationally touring group of misfits making sound wherever beckoned, The Blend dominated the midwest pioneering hip-hop and rock in the same breath from dingy basement rock shows to capacity hip-hop shows. Now, their fate unknown having disbanded for several years, Linden Killam and Toussaint Morrison continue the group's legacy of unconventional, top tiered sound. ... more
