Busdriver – COP

blame it on Shake August 20, 2014

In light of the current madness going down in Ferguson and the similar occurrences that continue to go unnoticed around the world, Busdriver liberates “COP,” a track that won’t be featured on his upcoming Perfect Hair LP (Sept. 8).

“Policing in the U.S. needs to be re-examined completely. Killing innocent people and children routinely can’t stand as the lasting trend. This song deals with policing. I feel like it was important to share.”

I want to be a cop
can you keep your lips sealed
I think my leadership skills can turn low- level offenders into crisp
bills, you know I’ve always wanted to be a
With a uniform fit with colonists’ seams
peeing in niggas collard greens as they discuss politics of dreams this why I’ve always wanted to be a cop
so I can criminalize the gate of your stroll, the shade of mole
and take a tole
a displaced dark face is safe as an ace in the hole for a cop,
as good as I , I’ll book a guy drinking crooked I
don’t resist pudding pie, you think I won’t buy why wouldn’t I
I’m a cop
Everything you do is actionable intel
giving NSA search words wind sails, step in jail
When I’m a finally a cop
you’ll be indicted for showing PDA in a PDF
and the PDJ sold from the tvset,
chemically discourages your graffiti sketch
I’m a cop “god’s an over-advertised lie”

I’m a cop “god’s an over-advertised lie”

I’m a cop “god’s an over-advertised lie”

You’re a cop “god’s an over-advertised lie”

When I’m a cop, I’ll be like back down kids
Issuing Black Power digs at cacao nibs
cool them niggas off with a blacked out grids
when I’m a cop, I’ll have to impersonate your online paramour, across time we will share the war
between cultural anomalies seeping into the arid pore
when you’re a cop, you can torment freely, in Semi Valley
Then seize an Audi and beam proudly
turn a routine traffic stop into someone’s season finale,
when you a cop.
You can shoot a motherfucker, by the trailer park
planting evidence your defense would razor sharp
then turn around and taze a perp for blazing purp

I’m a cop
