The Lyrics

I think the fusion of rock and rap is a great form of cultural exchange. It's like mixing funky fresh black berries into creamy plain white cultured yogurt. It's dynomite! It's also tastes Mo' Betta. Waynes World, Waynes world, party time excellent. Do you feel me my Shizzle? Sample this:
Give me black berries for my yogurt plain
I eat Yoplait watching soul train
Modern Rock-N-Roll
It's a goin' soul
Now maybe, it's sounding Mo' Betta?

Well I don't care how much Hip Hop has filtered in
Got to give props to "The Beasties [Boys]" now and then
Hip Hop earned its place
Rock wont be replaced
But maybe, it's sounding Mo' Betta?

Well it's sounding Mo' Betta
Since the Beasties helped open Hip Hop's doors
Dissin Brothas aint for me
I've got to shout out to my people once more
Am I Right? [in the hiz ouse]

Give me a minute and I will explain
So please don't try to ride the L-train
Crackers leave their crumbs
Guitars--sampled drums
Rap music, is rockin' Mo' Betta

Well I don't care how much people are going to hate
I like to get served by the needle and plate [vinyl]
Rappers love their bling
Rockers do their thing
World music, is sounding Mo' Betta

Well it's sounding Mo' Betta
With the fusion hits upon the dance floors
Listen Mister cant you hear?
We've got to get back to the basics, Dear Lord.
Am I Right?

While I disagree with your sentiment, Lionel (I'm a Rawk Pig at heart..;-)), I respect your right to say it in such an accomplished and funny way. Great job! 555

What Kristof said, except that I'm mainly a jazz fossil
