  1. From Scratch

From the recording Trumpets Around The World

In cart Not available Out of stock

To honor Miles Davis, infamous chameleon of jazz styles and fusions from bebop to electronica hybrid, this number takes off, with a special hail to his last album Doo-Bop and its perching upon hip hop and beat creators. An ethereal Satie splash at the top kicks into a St. Germaine’s “Rose Rouge”-like up-bop groove. Saskia trots out her muted trumpet parallel to rapper Tang Sauce’s free-styled spits, bolstered by Laroo’s own alter-ego-ed upright pulse bearing out that vital bebop jazz and hip hop kinship. Warren Byrd’s keyboard work also butters the blend.

Lyrics

(Tang Sauce:)
Ready bang I just be hanging out
What they really talking 'bout
Watch what you're talking 'bout
Cause I'm about that walking route
About to switch it up, Tang Sauce
About to flip it up
Going hard, about to rip it up
You know how we switch it up

I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that

Rock to the last beat to the last drop
I'm like Maxwell
I clean up the beat like a mop
What they really want what they really want
No mess with the opp, yeah,
Got the shoes on my feet, really cool in the street
What they really want what they want with me
Going on an on and I'm rippin' these M.C.'s
Every time I rhyme,
going hard, never doin' crime
I go hard, I gotta go for mine 's
From the one to the nine, ah
I'm better than every letter, every competitor

I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna see this I wish I knew that

Steeze be oozin',
I'm never losin', always 'been the coolest, ah,
never caught droolin',Eh
Always got my student ,eh,
nothing to be proving, eh,
always been the rudest, eh,
what they really doin'

I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna see this
I wish I knew that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna see this I wish I knew that

Going on and on with the real flow,
and you know Tang Sauce will steal the flow, eh huh,
From nobody, going on, it's my party, ladeedadee
What you really want, shorty move her body,
I go on and on

I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna see this I wish I knew that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna be this I wanna do that
I'm the guy in the baseball cap
I wanna see this I wish I knew that

I'm wording nine to five, eh, really all shine, eh,
That's all that I do, this is me and the crew,
'bout to step to you,
you ain't got nothing to do, eh,

I'm seeing through my ojo, huh,
you ain't steppin to my dojo, eh,
I'm on top of the momo, heh,
I'm about to go for more, huh
