Asher Roth - Cannon Lyrics

[Don Cannon:]
Holla At Me!

[Asher Roth:]
Yo, Cannon!
What would this mixtape be, if I didn't get on the one beat
That everbody gets on? (DRAMATIC!)
You know I had to, dog...

You know the world's gone mad
When blacks wear plaid
And Mariah has married Nick Can-non
Or when a boy from the burbs
Has the nerves to converge
On a mixtape with DJ Cannon? (The CANNON!)

You know the world's gone mad
When blacks wear plaid
And Mariah has married Nick Can-non
Or when a boy from the burbs
Has the nerves to converge
On a mixtape with DJ Cannon?

[Don Cannon:]
Alright... Now if you really feel like that, Keep going!
I don't know what else to tell you, Go in!

[Asher Roth:]
Yo, Cannon!
What would this mixtape be, if I didn't get on the one beat
That everbody gets on? (I don't know, homie!)
You know I had to, dog... (STEPS BACK!)

You know the world's gone mad
When blacks wear plaid
And Mariah has married Nick Can-non (GET EM!)
Or when a boy from the burbs
Has the nerves to converge
On a mixtape with DJ Cannon? (CANNON!)

Aww, God Damn-it,
That's the last straw, can't stand it
You all must be reprimanded
Spank that fan-ny, Man-ny
So uncanny, Ginobli flow left-handed

Yes, I am a fan of Da-kota Fanning,
And I Am Sam, out-standing!
My Sean Penn-manship is fan-cy,
Yeah, my rhe-to-ric is dan-dy
I circumvent my words (TRENDSETTER!)
And vent for the burbs,
I have emerged Ad Ven-ti,
Dos anos, vamos, pronto, let's go,
Her lip gloss tastes like can-dy

Got more jazz than Jerry Sloan,
Pizzazz and swagg alone,
I have a bigger head that that of Barry Bonds;
Y'all eat scraps, I eat (SALMON!)
With fresh fruit, covered in (DANNON!)
If Da Boy had a boy with Brad Pitt in Troy,
Then out from the loins, I'd be born;
If Jason Bourne was to record and join forces with Zack Morris,
They'd form my performance

Beats and rhymes fornicate, form greatness,
Like, "Let's face it... He's so amazing! "
Yeah, with Lasiks, he still can't ace my eye exam,
Naw, man, let's try again;
I've got lungs like Iron Man,
I hit the bong, while you must extend your dia-phragm
But, let's get higher, man;
I gotta a brand new strand that I got out in Ire-land
From a wild, frantic Irish-man,
Who said his name was (SHANNON!)

Higgins, Killians, and a pint of Guiness,
And I ain't gon stop 'till I'm finished;
'Till I learn Yiddish, or find a little kid who likes spinach
Can't nobody beat me in Quidditch
Not any widditch, spidditch, wits, I'm sick with' it,
Riddi-dick, my spit game is vicious

This is
Never did shit for my I'm-age;
College kid is where I found my niche, SNITCH!
Tell the whole world I'm the shit, Un-
Tell the whole world on my dick, then
Hell yeah, word, I'll be rich, and
I'll buy the whole world Sega Genesis
Spittin' lint to come,
Hell yeah, I got a (CANNON!)
See me on the streets, take a pick with yo' cannon
Then get it lami-nated, frame it, save it,
Cause in a couple days, I'll be famous

Then you can say, Holy Shit, there he is! That's the kid!
I forget what his name is... starts with an 'A', ends with a 'Sher'.
Bringing hip-hop into the burbs

Asher Roth Cannon Comments
  1. Sacred Starlight_94

    These are actual fucking bars not that leaned out auto tune 808 bounce bs that plays 24/7

  2. Curt Miller

    this song is still fucking sick

  3. PapaFetch

    Shit still hits in 2019

  4. Jacob Taylor

    ive found myself somewhere i havent been in years and am loving it

  5. Surviive

    Daaaaaaaamn this takes me back. I miss Asher Roth 😔😫😭

  6. Jeff Greenwade

    Damn, why does he sound like Eminem?

  7. RED

    He sounds like Eminem but less lyrical

  8. Chonnessey Bowie

    Closest thing to the Lil Wayne to this beat

  9. Droopy Mcgoopy

    ginobili flow left handed

  10. Joe Schook

    This was nice, but I think Webby is nicer

  11. GreenPeachesMaybe

    I love the flow

  12. Homer The Don

    How Em tries to rap like now and asher done evolved.
    "My aura takes the form of the aurora borealis
    Or a floral pattern, more or less a forest to your salad".

  13. Chris Kremer

    Saw nick cannon at the McGregor fight and thought of this song

  14. Moriah Angel Nakai we are Lambily TSOSIE Tanaka

    when Mariah has married Nick Cannon. I am a lamb. AKA Mariah fan. 4:44 Life

  18. Hambone

  19. Jaleel Geralds


  20. Dimoni Rei

    He sounds like em...but...less lyrical


    Less lyrical? Asher Roth shocked me and everyone else with his lyricism but he DOES sound just like Em. That's one reason I don't think he made it. That and he's simply just too white, but not in the inner city hood way. This is also why Lil Dicky isn't gonna make it (very far). Asher Roth and Lil Dicky are literally just like that one white kid in a nice neighborhood/school who can freestyle rap as a party talent. That's not to say they're untalented though.
