milo - Mr. Doubt(w)riter Lyrics




My ancestors broke their backs sharecroppin'
And my Grandfather picked cotton!
So pardon me if I'm not impressed by that collar poppin'
On Facebook creeping, I can see you have a nice life
Cause you have multiple albums dedicated to your "Night Life"
And I'm hoping one of your trashier friends will show some skin
I've got soft hands that need to be broken in
This is the total extent of my dirty work
I guess when you're this nerdy it really hurts
When I argue with folks, I tend to use Parli Pro
Cause everything ain't "All Good" like these gnarly bro's
I've got the frame of an old man with gnarled bones
I don't participate in Intramural Leagues
And in the Winter, I develop a neural disease
This ain't some sort of artsy depression
This the kind of shit that make Archie start stressin'
You struggle to remember what I never forgot
But I keep shit bottled up so my insides'll rot

I write a lot of rap songs (Mmhm)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die (Yes, sir)
I write a lot of rap songs (Mmhm)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die

Biologically, I overreact to dopamine
Realistically, I don't exist on your social scene
Cause, by nature, I'm very introverted
I've lost a lot of friends, wish that I could say it hurted
My best connections were playing video games online
My classmates couldn't recall my name during free time
I'm the type of dude to win it all on Cash Cab
And in a flash waste it on a rapper collab
Struggling with lyrics to connect with octogenarians
These are the toils of a well-fed American
My whole life I've been B Squad leader
My vocals are peaking, you better fuck with your tweeter
Underground and I'd submerge myself deeper
Unfortunately I wasn't born with a rebreather
I'm king of the castle on a very tall hilltop
I stay sobered up while these other dudes pill pop
Steal the library's internet until my cable bill drops
You won't catch me rapping about robots with Jill Scott

I write a lot of rap songs (Mmhm)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die (Yes, sir)
I write a lot of rap songs (Mmhm)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die

Ice Cream truck drivers tend to play this rather loudly
Like a father with wallet-sized photos on display proudly
I don't go shopping for clothing unless it's bargain day
I like girls who like Robert Frost, sports cars, and Lingerie
My flows are inspired by day dreaming through ACT prompts
To seem more artistic, I write rhymes in downloaded fonts
Clumsily recite Neil Young lyrics down by the pond
I still listen to Wu-Tang Clan like word is bond
I'm an awkward mass of highly regenerative cells
I'm a vagabond with a limited selection of songs to sell
An introspective tumblr with photographs of pretty people
And succinct lineups on all your favorite sequels!
I buy all my books Used off Amazon
And hold myself in the basement cause I'm afraid of Babylon...
I'm a fart-face from a dark race
Who left in a stargate to escape...
All these stuttering corn flakes!

I write a lot of rap songs (Uh huh)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die (Yes, sir)
I write a lot of rap songs (Uh huh)
But I don't ever bring them home (No, no)
I let them live on this hard drive
And convince myself that's where they deserve to die

  5. Crack Daniels

  6. Goto Hell

  7. Earl Swaetpants

    logic sucks

  8. Edgar Mirth

    WU-TANG 2:44

  9. Fresh Trackzzz

    i agree with you. Milo is a very clear start of it, although it has been paved a bit by rappers like george watsky and mackelmore, they rap with with intelligence but still are not nearly as poetic as milo. Rappers who are deeper than others, but they are no nothing compared to the new wave that you are explaining.

    David Lee

    watsky and macklemore are straight garbage

  10. Jay Cooper

    >intellectual
    Don't forget your fedora on the way out, sir

  11. chekmate58

  12. SenorBeagleCulo

    OH SHIT its my kind!

  13. RuuubeMarley

    how the fuck was your grandad a slave m8 u fukin liar

  14. chekmate58

    Never knew Fernando Alonso was from the US; how about shutting the fuck up mate? You sound like you have personally lead a movement for "intellectual hip hop", there have been numerous really good rappers whose lyrics aren't out of a special ed textbook, Andre 3000 and Illogic come to mind. Anyway great song, much love from Australia.

  15. Rmarsh451

    this is the shit i like!

  16. Javier Argandona

    whoa man just when i was trying to like you gota dis lupe comon man he da man

  17. Cmhonsu33

    your right, no rick ross here

  18. Será Louise

    Dude, Beck IS a rapper, he fuses a lot of different styles of music, including alternative hip hop.

  19. MiddayRecords

    The Jem.. and another good one is open mike eagle

  20. mrgoodevil13

    That's what Milo called it in DAVID FOSTER WALLACE.

  21. Joe Dadd

    @suprofly I prefer to call it Nerd-Hop

  22. mrgoodevil13

    The opposite of Lil Wayne's music....
    Thought-provoking,deep and original.

  23. Strong Man

    Amazing MC, I will listen to these songs for a long time, they made it on my playlist with weezer, the killers, and some other stuff. Click it, you will enjoy my list. ^^

  24. Fernando Alonso

    @brockbread It's funny that you completely overlooked the fact that you essentially explained my point...I won't argue about the fact that the labeling can be hindering at times, but you have to realize, there is MUCH difference between various songs. That's perhaps the reason why labeling comes about. And rapping about "bitches and money" is most definitely NOT a marketing tactic.

  25. B Tarrrrr

    Is the beat his or Shlomo's?pretty nice

  26. Erin Johnson

    @starofcctv94 umm cool?

  27. Fernando Alonso

    The dawn of what I like to call "Neo-rap" is before us; I'll name it "Intellectual hip hop," something far beyond the mental capacity of the other contemporary rappers of today. P.S. I thank TheNeedleDrop for bringing me here.

  28. fritolay718

    @bevan7ful its madlib understanding

  29. starofcctv94

    @Lilboysiliketogobble I got 50 likes on 'just us' just by saying his name odd that people will thumb it up

  30. darren mane

    @bevan7ful Not sure if this answers your question but the song samples "You and I" by Black Ivory, Q-Tip also sampled the song in his track "Gettin' Up"

  31. SmokeFace

    what's the name of this instrumental?

    Sophia Waterman

    He has sampled Gettin Up by QTip - sorry its 8 years late haha

  32. MFgabesylar3030

    reminds me of beck if he was a rapper

  33. Jekcheck

    I fucking hate rap.......but this shit describes my life and i love it so much,
    i spose i'm the same i just make electronic music instead

  34. bead gawd

    Needle Drop told me about this...and it's pretty dope

  35. Erin Johnson

    @Clemsault he did but im not going to like your comment to feed you weird ego
