Swing Hop (Bigger Than)

Verse 1: (Offbeat)

One thing about music is it can’t be pigeon-holed
Whether it’s brand new or old
There’s more than one era that’s gold
And we’re combining em
2 genres decades apart but we’re uniting ‘em
Then we mix ‘em together to make something better
Even Dead Prez ain’t denying it
But I didn’t wanna do this all on my own
So assembled a team of likeminded friends
The finest musical minds I could find
Who have proved it time and time again
We’re all established artists in our own right
But aligned we’re multiplied by 10
So for now I’m gonna say ‘bye bye’
To the Solo life like Kylo Ren
Yeah – We got the scene on lock
Kings of this thing like BB was
In a speakeasy doing cheeky shots
Til we go blinder than the Peeky mob
Everything that you might need we’ve got
A guy called Pye with the sweet beatbox
But he’s not the type that you want to bite
Like the ones on Fleet Street from Sweeney Todd
So If you want the sickest spitters, record-spinning, singing Swingers then we’ll be the
Bringers of enjoyment
But then if you’re bitter, twisted critic, sitting, dissing wishing we were quitting quicker
Then you will be disappointed!

We’re bigger than HIP – HOP – HIP – HOP – HIP HOP – HIP (Why? Coz this right here is)
SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING HOP (Uh…)

Verse 2: (Pye)

We love Biggie Smalls, we love Duke Ellington we love it all
From jump up Hip Hop to Lindy Hop in the old town hall
If you can hear us we been telling em to please recall
Two golden eras here together and they’re standing tall
The kick drum thumps / The tension mounts
The speaker pumps / And we’re ready to pounce
If your hips gonna bump / Then that’s what counts
But if you’re ready to jump / Then we’re ready to bounce
Get out your seat / Check for the show
If you got feet / Then you know where to go
Step to the beat / — Listen to the flow
We’ll rip off the roof like a full proof pro
In the real world (world, world…)
I keep a 9 to 5
Daydream of leaving it behind
To speak to people on stage live
But in the real world (world, world…)
The truth is I’m a normal guy
But I will prove I got the drive
To see it through and see it fly
So if you like tight spitting / and that heavy weight bass
With a beatbox rhythm / Then you’re in the right place
The harmony’s pure when Shar’s on the case
But if you want more / We can pick up the pace
I only got a minute so I’ll hit it then I’ll quit
And there’s a lot for me to fit in so I’d better spit it quick
– This isn’t a gimmick or a rip off of a hit
Coz it’s bigger than the sum of what we put into the mix…

…. WE’RE BIGGER THAN!

HIP – HOP – HIP – HOP – HIP HOP – HIP (Why? Coz this right here is)
SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING (It’s bigger than…)

HIP – HOP – HIP – HOP – HIP HOP – HIP (Why? You’re listening to)
SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING HOP – SWING HOP
