lyrics

Verse 1
 
BS:
Hour after dark, 10pm on the mark
and it's frickin' cold out
Union Square Park, when's the cypher start?
Grey said 9 we said "No doubt"
 
AR:
Should've known better than you show up on time,
No reason to whine...more evening to rhyme
I am most inclined to remind y'all here
How hip-hop sounds when it's improvised
 
BS:
Speech on the fly with a gleam in his eye
Spittin' about anything within reach of his mind:
Mullets on short skirts, gold chains, ripped shirts
current controversy with the Catholic Church -
Whatever's in range is free game and creates
a verse no other moment could hope to contain
 
AR:
Proponent of ownin' the moment,
the only onus is on the shoulders of the bogus
I'm ridin' donuts around opponents!
 
BS:
WHOOO! Taggin' in, taggin' out!
 
AR:
People gathered round, time to really turn it out
 
BS:
3 cheers to commandeered ears and no peers here
to switch gears and drive away the crowd
 
AR:
No doubt, emcees with ease
I feel more at home than a set of draperies
With a slew of new things and a cool winter breeze
We're more welcome here than the birds and the bees
 
Chorus 1:
No roof over my head - this is (MY HOUSE)
Strangers walkin' around - this is (MY HOUSE)
Grey bricks beneath my kicks - this is (MY HOUSE)
Starvin' artists but we eat inside of (MY HOUSE)
 
Verse 2
AR:
Hop a downtown train, Brooklyn-bound
Exit the platform, follow the sound
Walk into a building that resembles
the city of Dresden – after being burned down.
 
BS:
Jungle juice next to DJ booths
laser lights, strobes, and projection rooms
Bum-buh-bum goes BOOM-BUH-BOOM
you can feel the bass shake foundation to roof
 
AR: Rattling rafters
 
BS: Chattering glass
 
AR: Crumbling plaster
 
BS: House of wax
 
AR: Dance floor packed
BS: from the front
AR: to the back, I need a drink
BS: Yo i second that!
 
AR:
DJ M-Tri rockin' proper
When a drunk girl trips, spills a cup of vodka
 
BS: Yo that Goose is cooked!
AR: So is the sound
BS: Crowd now rowdy mulling around
AR: If we're gonna do something it's gotta be now
BS: If we're gonna do something, it's gotta be loud
Let's hit the stage, give 'em more than static
AR: Throw your hands in the air?
BS: Classic!
AR+BS: Throw your hands in the air, and wave them like you just don't care
If you wish that girl didn't get so drunk everybody say "Oh yeaaah!"
 
Chorus 2
(BS & AR)
Your roof over my head? - this is (MY HOUSE)
People walkin' around - this is (MY HOUSE)
Concrete beneath my sneaks - this is (MY HOUSE)
Starvin' artist but we eat inside of (MY HOUSE)
 
Verse 3
AR: 5 blocks North
BS: $10 at the door
AR: No dough needed
BS: We're hear to perform
 
AR: The bouncer, could not care less
BS: Checks IDs
AR: Nods
BS: Point's left
 
AR:
Step inside, ready to jam
and spot more mean muggers than Homeboy Sand
 
BS: Stand by the bar, nowhere to post-up
"We rockin' tonight"
Bartender's like:
 
AR:
"So what?"
 
BS:
9 bucks for a whiskey soda?!
Fine, but when I sip mine, I only taste Cola!
 
AR:
5 later
 
BS:
Still sober
 
AR: the lights dim so we saunter over
the first cat rapped like a source mag centerfold
 
BS:
Really well dressed
 
AR: But the music wasn't memorable
 
BS: Next cat, lyrics but no flow
AR: Okay to read, but live...
BS: Oooh nooo
AR: Oh yes
BS: If I gotta sit through another set...
AR:: Ayo we're up next!
BS: Rush the stage, dap the DJ
AR: Start to rock without pause or delay
BS: Heads turn
AR: Moods change
BS: Mean-muggers now call for replay!
AR: Finish up on a Mic-L track
BS: Walk by the bar, free shots of Jack!
 
Chorus 3
Any where roof over head?  - this is (MY HOUSE)
Anybody walkin' around?  - this is (MY HOUSE)
Anywhere that I go?  - this is (MY HOUSE)
Starvin' artists but we EAT inside of (THIS HOUSE)

about

Dollar Coffee Brooklyn, New York

A double-shot of hip-hop for the soul. A freshly brewed pot of body-rocking goodness. As if orchestrated by the gods of rhyme, the meeting of Brooklyn transplants BS and Albert Rhymestein was indeed the work of fate. Rooted in a mutual love for hip-hop, they began collaborating together in early 2010. Talk of a short EP quickly grew into Dollar Coffee and the debut full-length album "Nice Things". ... more
