Heavy metal speaks to my soul but hip hop will always hold a special place in my heart. I wrote this song to remind myself why I fell in love with the art. ❤️️

lyrics

HARDCORE
-----------------

It’s Saturday night so I’m taking ya back
Shout out Schoolly D I’m getting’ ill on your track
And I betcha didn’t think that I’d be rocking these verses
From The Power of a Woman all the way to Vintage Curses
To Feminenergy cause now it’s 2020
So I’m getting analytical cause shit’s got critical
Political and delegitimized
Even wearing a mask has become politicized
On the right…so I’mma stay in the left lane
Take aim at propaganda, stay calm and remain sane
Regulate and debate with an eloquent rage
Recognize and respect if you dare to engage
No histrionics, just aggressive lyricism
Standing up for feminism and against fascism
So say what’s up to the OG
Always speak my mind and never did what they told me

You can’t ignore the woman who will roar
So, look more close notice the hardcore
Style but you knew this, so let’s do this
Eazy E: Yo Tairrie
Yeah, Eazy…you know I’m still ruthless

Now I’d rather be remembered for my lyrical legacy
My necessary roughness, hardcore integrity
Legendary with no empathy for bigotry
No sympathy for the Devil or the GOP
From Tennessee to the California sunset
I’m calling out the bullshit cause I ain’t fucking done yet
And fuck a President who’s a treasonous traitor
A racist white supremacist wannabee dictator
I hope he’s choking, stoking fear and hate
Incompetent narcissist, grift incarnate
Debauchery and making a mockery of Democracy
Assassinating and the degrading of the Presidency
With threats and attempts to steal the election
And now he’s tested positive for the infection
My thoughts and prayers for the irony left in the air
And the mask he refused to wear

You can’t ignore the woman who will roar
So, look more close notice the hardcore
Style but you knew this, so let’s do this
Eazy E: Yo Tairrie
Yeah, Eazy…you know I’m still ruthless

Interviewer: What do you think of this record? This person right here. A white woman gangster rapper.

Ice T: Yeah, somehow Eazy hooked up with her. From what I understood she was an interesting chick. Had an ill personality but then I heard she turned over and started to do rock but I wouldn't call her gangster rap but she was hardcore.

Eazy E: Yeah, this is true

Now I’ve taken it back to that 80’s rap with a boom bap
Shout out to Van Halen and Ratt
Skillfully executing, shooting the gift
To an ill Philly beat with a killer guitar riff
Hardcore cause I could never be soft
It doesn’t matter if it’s heavy metal or hip hop
Gimme a microphone and I can rock both genres
Raw and visceral to clever double extenders
So if you think that it’s your destiny to get the best of me,
I suggest you be quiet punk, don’t try to step to me
Living in this post-traumatic era of conflict
Step into my mind, and you’ll find me in my element
Articulate, intelligent, emphatic, eminent
Confident, radical, rough and relevant
A vet, the misfit rebel with no regrets
Representing all the women who resist on the left

You can’t ignore the woman who will roar
So, look more close notice the hardcore
Style but you knew this, so let’s do this
Eazy E: Yo Tairrie
Yeah, Eazy…you know I’m still ruthless

Bless the memory of Eazy E
Word!
