MF Doom - Deep Fried Frenz Lyrics




Before we go any further
Friends

As you call 'em, they call you when they need something
Trees for the blunt, the g's for the front
I found a way to get peace of mind for years
And left the hell alone: Turn a deaf ear to the cellular phone
Send me a letter, or better, we could see each other in real life
Just so you could feel me like a steel knife
At least so you could see the white of they eyes
Bright with surprise, once they finish spitting lies
Asssociates, is your boys, your girls, bitches, niggas, homies
Close, but really don't know me
Mom, dad, comrade, peeps, brothers, sisters, duns, dunnies
Some come around when they need some money
Others make us laugh like the Sunday funnies
Fam be around whether you paid or bummy
You could either ignore this advice, or take it from me
Be too nice and people take you for a dummy
So nowadays he ain't so friendly
Actually he woulda even made a worthy enemy
Read the signs: "No feeding the baboon"
Seein' as how they got ya back bleeding from the stab wounds
Y'all know the dance, they smile in ya face, y'all know the glance
Try to put 'em on, they blow the chance
Never let your so-called mans know your plans
(How many of us have them?) A show of hands
(Friends) is a term some people use loosely
I'm real choosy on what I choose to let crews see
You telling me; I try to act broke
Jealousy the number one killer among black folk
Fellas be under some type of spell like crack smoke
Ghetto Cinderellas, lead 'em right to your stack, loc
Just another way a chick'll lead to your end
I check the dictionary for the meaning of friend
It said: (Friend): Person, one who likes to socialize with
Sympathiser, helper... and that's about the size of it
Most of the time these attributes is one-sided
To bolster the crime, they're apt to shoot you through your eyelid
And they can't hide it, going wild like a white bitch
Sometimes ya need to cut niggas off like a light switch
(Click!) and when things get quiet
Catch 'em like a thief in the night, what a riot
I first met Mr. Fantastik at a arms deal
Don't let it get drastic, think of how yer moms'll feel
When it get for real, steel get to sparkin'
Everything darken, and ain't no talkin'
For somethin so cheap it sure buys a lot of trouble
Ya better off focusing than tryin to plot to bubble
Or else it'd be a sad note to end on, the guns we got is
(One's we can depend on...Friends)
Some come in the form of codependence
A lot of times only end up being codefendants
Ten bucks say they tell for a lower sentence
And leave you up under the jail, begging for a penance
It don't make no sense, what happened to the loyalty?
Honor amongst crooks, trust amongst royalty
I'd rather go out in a blaze, than give 'em the glory
(How many of us have-) a similar story
(Friends) before lovers, we used to have some type of over-standing
Just so when I let her get the man thing, she know its no strings
We could do the damn thing, but ho its no rings
Just how the tramp swings, will she see 'em again?
That depends on how good was the skins
And could she memorize the lessons
It ain't no need to pretend
Even though she let 'em stab it, she know they're just friends

(Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Ones we can depend on?
Friends
How many of us have them?
Friends
Before we go any further)

Fellas! Don't be silly! I know who my friends are!
And the next nice neighborhood I move into, you guys'll get crackin'
(Negro humor always escaped me.)

    Before we go any further, friends
    As you call? em they call you when they need somethin.

    Trees for the blunt, two G's for the frontin
    I found a way to get peace of mind for years and left the hell alone
    Turn a deaf ear to the cellular phone
    Send me a letter or better, we could see each other in real life
    Just so you could feel me like a steel knife
    At least so you could see the white of their eyes
    Bright with surprise once they finish spittin lies
    Associates, is your boys, your girls, bitches, niggaz, homies?
    Close, but really don't know me
    Mom, dad, comrade, peeps, brothers, sisters, duns, dunnies
    Some come around when they need some money
    Others make us laugh like the Sunday funnies
    Fam be around whether you paid or bummy

  77. cj j rock

  78. Rum Ham

    This entire album is like seeing into the future. Rap Snitch Knishes could pertain to Bobby Shmurda and every other rapper snitching on themselves. This song could pertain to 6ix9ine snitching on his former crew or Nipsey Hussle getting murdered. Crazy.

    Kanoa Stibbard

    Lyrics:
    Before we go any further
    Friends

    As you call 'em, they call you when they need something
    Trees for the blunt, the g's for the front

    HOW MANY OTHER HAVE A SIMILAR STORY

  85. Erick Diaz

    sSuspects who I think killed Hip Hop ..
    •Kanye
    •Lil John
    •Dem franchize boys
    •Diddy.
    •Rick ross
    •Dmx
    •Dj khaled
    •New Boiz...
    •The Game

    Truth:
    Hip hop never died.
    It just got harder to deal with. Breakin on records without consent. Fucked up. Then dissin on the pruducer.. shit got annoying.. even for people who wernt tryna come up or even flex.. they couldn't make fucking music with all these restrictions nd owning. Ogs had to start connecting with the city/society(shit our youth despises) to get owning rights so sum bitch ass don't go using it freely. The last thing an OG wants to do is to have to put their name on shit nd claim threw officials...makes em look soft. But they had no other choice or get robbed of fame. People were becoming stingy with there music...so fuck ya 90's ..when hip hop music became violent and people started getting merked cause of music..🤘. Anybody that came in at the time as an artist Were all saying fuck that . Not everyone...but then the fakes that came in thinking they arent going to suffer a consequence for using/taking/stealing beats that arent there's.... wtvr this is just how I thought bout it . either way being a dedicated artist (in any genre) was gonna take a lot of fucking dedication . If you wanted to make it. ... it's not that Hip Hop died. People just started realizing it's a business nd it's not easy. It shouldn't be..... shit
    HIP HOP is the murderer :O

  86. Erron Mcgriff

    The guy s who dealt with tekashi should listen to this song

  87. Gemma Roberts

    I feel this those trust issues are always on my radar.
