[Kool Keith] 


For the 2000 (2000) 

Black Elvis (Black Elvis) 

We get raw with this (hand me my guitar) 

Tour bus packed (tour bus packed) 

Black Elvis  recordin in the 48 track studio 

Madison Square Garden soundcheck  to speak direct 

Fans in the upper level  backstage passes 

Wearin diamonds around my glasses  leather coat 

Thirty thousand from Wilson  countin the mill's 

I'm talkin to Andre Harrell with a chaffeur drivin me around 

in the green Rolls Royce, parked parallel, on Fifth Avenue 

Steppin in Bloomingdale's, waitin for Celine Dion to get her nails done 

Tour dates start tomorrow, MCI send the cash through Wells Fargo 

Black Elvis, 28 G's a night 

Tour bus with the Motley Crue, who gon' stop who? 

Rock star don't need no tattoo 

Guitar out of the sharp, Fender bass with the Stratocaster 

With Prodigy, Rage Against the Machine, flyin over the Atlantic ocean 

with the potion 

Chorus: cool Keith 

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin down Broadway 

What y'all thinkin about? 

Black Elvis, rock star, walkin down Broadway 

Chillin in the project hallway 

(repeat 1.5X) 

[Kool Keith] 

Tour bus, painted neon green with black wheels 

We do big wheels, count big head Franklin bills 

Movin up that's when I'm Black Elvis at the Civic Center 

Promoter book venues that are too small, ignore the call 

Seventy thousand jam packed arenas 

with rock fans wearin backpacks 

Merchandise sell nice gold shirts with red lights 

Sponsored by Dial soap and a Heineken 

The biggest rock star gon' rhyme again 

Roadie cases for eight months, Samsonite suitcases 

Rappers comin home with no money on the red eye with dead eyes 

Stadium tickets, watch scalpers get wicked 

Pull up in my limo ejecting your demo (your demo) 

Stretch lamborghinis with four doors, with four floors 

Followin right behind yours, basic Continental 

Get out your rental before I get mental 

(Yeah baby) 

Chorus 2X 

[Kool Keith] 

Huge signs on highways, you see the biggest advertisements 

I meant to man the bombs off and skip my next assignment 

Walk in the Sony building, grab checks 

Stop in a Hilton, Warner Brothers Chap' on the back 

of my royalty statements, my name is Matthew 

Three apartments on the West with 200 songs 

Five minutes each on Ampex reels 

At the Shark Bar chewin billionaire meals 

At the Apollo, can you digest? 

I'm a hard act to swallow 

With a Paris France with a real estate agent 

that's building me a kid's playground in Denver, Colorado 

Vacation unknown when I'm speakin 3-way with Roberto Duran 

and Sugar Ray Leonard on the cellular phone 

Upstate Connecticut, hold you rap style with a better grip 

(I'm a rock star now) 

Chorus 2X
