Lyrics

Get Stoked!

Written By: Anacron

Let's get it started
You 'finna' get retarded 'cause it's hotter than retardant
You're actin' uneasy like you sharted low-key see
Come on and ride the train because the party's been departed

Everybody's getting down
White, Black, Yellow, Brown
Jump around and touch the ground
Dont be quiet, riot sound

We're on a mission
Everybody listen and the goal will find fruition
Forbidden dancing figures grind together causing friction
Then we come apart and feel the vibe evolve like fission

Open up your mind and vibe
Laws defied, drinks imbibe
Inhibition to the side
Find your tribe and get stoked!

Out of control with no restraints
Deep inside your soul freedom awaits
Just let it go as the beat provokes
Climb out of your skin and get stoked

Get stoked, get stoked (x8)

Lets get it goin
The feel is freely flowin blowing Red Bull got you th'owing
Everything is racing like you're moving in slow motion
Sure enough bent back and last dragon got you glowin

Wave your arms, do your dance
Grind your hips and shake your pants
Pop and lock, breakdance
Move your body, take a chance

That's how you do it
Sweat is dripping as your body melts into a fluid
Sensitbility's truant, communication is fluent
Between your mind and your body until your soul's congruent

Open up your mind and vibe
Laws defied, drinks imbibe
Inhibition to the side
Find your tribe and get stoked

Out of control with no restraints
Deep inside your soul freedom awaits
Just let it go as the beat provokes
Climb out of your skin and get stoked

Get stoked, get stoked (x8)

Out of control with no restraints
Deep inside your soul freedom awaits
Just let it go as the beat provokes
Climb out of your skin and get stoked

Friends

Written By: Anacron

I don't know what happened, but I know things have changed
When we meet and I smile you just look at me strange
We had a conversation about where we stand
With all the complications I cant be your man
I was cool with that, you said "let's just be friends"
I told you that I'd wait for your love 'til the end
I hoped that one day you might want to be my wife
That may not be, but still I want you in my life

How are we gon' get to know eachother
How are we gon' see this through the end
How are we gon' get to be lovers
You can't even be a good friend

Damn girl, you're flipping like a gymnast schizophrenic
One minute thingss are cool, the next it's something different
You give me kisses, hold my hand, and want me close
Then you act distant and your output is morose
From week to week it switches, and I'm so confused
This routine really is emotional abuse
I cannot live without the you that is so sweet
But I can't stand how you act every other week

How are we gon' get to know eachother
How are we gon' see this through the end
How are we gon' get to be lovers
You can't even be a good friend

You tell me that you want me to see other women
Although I love you, I don't think I should stop living
But when I hook up with another girl, you're through
All on my voicemail like I disrespected you
She's hella fun and cool, but you're a queen to me
There's so much more to me than she could ever be
I told you this, so last week everything was fresh
But yesterday, it seems you completely regressed

How are we gon' get to know eachother
How are we gon' see this through the end
How are we gon' get to be lovers
You can't even be a good friend

The Out Crowd

Written By: Anacron

Dont stop, get it get it
I'm watching, girl
Go on, drop, dip and hit it
I got you girl
Funny seeing you here, especially since you're usually
cruising deep with urban geeks, assimilated herds of sheep
"Eff the herd!" We down to scream it out loud
We ain't trying to be like them, fool this is The Out Crowd
But since you're out now, you should peep these different,
heaven-sent events where fun is limitless and imminent
Listen

We don't go out to be seen in your childish hipster scene, no
You're too cool for high school
We don't want to be a part of the fads you form from art, so
please don't do what we do

This is The Out Crowd
We ain't insecure, we get down when the bump starts
This is The Out Crowd
Hosting bunk parties, your scene sucks, mark
This is The Out Crowd
Our movement's worldwide but your hype is localized
This is The Out Crowd
Trendsetters are fly and hipsters die

Boo-yah
Ya'll parties is wack, fool
Think you doin' some innovative s***, you just recycling and regurgitating something that's already been done, boy
Ya'll fools is bunk
Check it out

Baa-baa black, brown, white and yellow wack sheep,
have you any pull like skeet-shooters at a track meet
Awkwardly you're acting, do your best to fit in
Your "swag" seems hackneyed, who you think you're kidding
Style reminiscient of some dudes I seen before you
Why are these traditions of the truth that preened me torn through
to smithereens, blithering promoters snakes slithering
Clubs murked in dithering unscertain Ben Vereens
Actors playing chicken, this ain't Zoobilee Zoo
No vision, so you fit in with the "Do What We Do"s
Look the same, dress the same, all the same, are the same,
took the same steps to change, ya'll became carbon lames
Me and my homies, we been different since the get-go,
so we don't go to get official where you get low
We get geeked frequenting locations that are secret
I'm preaching to the Deacons of this innovative scene shit

All we do is get down
All we do is rock
All we do is be us
All we do is live
(x2)

This is The Out Crowd
We ain't insecure, we get down when the bump starts
This is The Out Crowd
Hosting bunk parties, your scene sucks, mark
This is The Out Crowd
Our movement's worldwide but your hype is localized
This is The Out Crowd
Trendsetters are fly and hipsters die

Found on Facebook and Myspace, we don't spam, canned ham's bad taste
This life's for those that seek it
Secret locations and bars, cutty spots beneath the stars is
where we meet with deep beats, kid

This is The Out Crowd
We ain't insecure, we get down when the bump starts
This is The Out Crowd
Hosting bunk parties, your scene sucks, mark
This is The Out Crowd
Our movement's worldwide but your hype is localized
This is The Out Crowd
Trendsetters are fly and hipsters die

Rich Girls

Written By: The Virgins

We walk around pretending
we're all grown up
Hey rich girl
Well, can you tell me why
you're so stuck up
when you act like you're so down
Does paranoia come around
and seize your mind?
Now roll your eyes
Investigation's being done
Who's been wearing what with who
and what's going on

You've got to know
You've got to know

I'll tell you everything I know
every little thing I know
I'll tell you anything I know
any little think I know

You've got a lovely way with words
is that the way you see the world
the way you see the world

We walk around pretending
we're all grown up
Hey rich girl
Well, can you tell me why
you're so stuck up
when you act like you're so down
Paranoia comes around
read your mind
and take your eyes
Investigation to be done
Who's been wearing what with who
and what's going on

You've got to know
I'd like to know

Schwing

Written By: Anacron

Eff swag, I got schwing
Def rag, fresh threads. hot wings
Dirty shoes, Nudie blue jeans
He's got a grown-cut crease, tough steez, 'nuff creez
Got them on that new slang
Got them all-black new frames, show them how I do things
You lames think you're on a new thing,
didn't get it when I did it back in '02, mayne
Always on that awesomely aesthetical,
hella cool, biters hoping that it's taste-testable
Because my flavor's so edible
Vegetables incredible, vegans call it impeccable
Beauty so ineffable, eff a fool's name brand
Floss my name, and no one can look the same, man
That's the game plan; I'm a pro, respect it
Girlies saying, "'Cron is so eclectic! He be like..."

Schwing, schwing, schwing, schwing
Schwing, schwing, schwing, schwing

I'm 'bout this, see my outfits?
Biters hating, concentrating like Auschwitz
Fools be hanging on my pouch with
ladies on my couch, Pootie Tang'ing "Cappa chow, bitch!"
Wa-da-tah, I got a lot
of ways to blow it up, I'm hella bomb Jihad Allah
You're so phony, all eyes on me
and children turn invisible; call me Joe Kony
Stingy brim like Ben Vereen
Looking good in slim-cut jeans, I'm slim but lean
Grinchy men bite trends from me
but I got trim from queens loving scha-wing!
300-dollar jeans with a 5-dollar tee and some 20-dollar sneaks
and I still get it from the freaks
because it ain't about the gear -- It's ME. They be like...

Schwing, schwing, schwing, schwing
Schwing, schwing, schwing, schwing

This Is Me

Written By: Anacron

This is me (x4)

Allow me to reintroduce myself,
my name is Anacron - phonics induce how it's spelled
Writing songs and making music produce my wealth
'cause I'm an artist breaking rules in the booth by self
I'm not a follower, never been a conformist
When you're guideline's formless, possibility's enormous
My art's a polymer putty that's hella muddy
but I still create beauty with whatever I'm given, buddy
This defines "good music"
That underground, Liemert Park to Silver Lake infused with
that Whiskey Teeth, Culture King, browsing Fusicology,
hashtag-"Now Playing" trending topic, follow me
Find me on Twitter, I'm a rhyme freon spitter
Hyphy, icy-cold flows bold bro's throwed 'bow's to
I'm finna show you how pro's do, it's so true
Gallery's a dope crew, and Anacron's the GOAT, fool

This is me (x4)

My mindframe is Unfamous
It's not a label; it's a lifestyle, language,
and love for music, not that lack-luster lameness
It's not exclusive, any open mind could claim this
Natural for the nameless; underdogs anonymous
Those with open eyes can see the underground is ominous
What happened to the bond in this, what happened to "community"
Busters at the top ditchin unity for immunity
I'm a writer and a breaker and an MC
I'm a DJ and producer, and it's in me
That L.A. mentality to signify my family ties
Understand me guys, I am Hip Hop personified
Ahead of my time, futuristic messenger
Blessing them since '89, now they're barely catching up
Rappers singing hooks now, sagging tight jeans
but I bet they can't get down like me on black and white keys

This is me (x12)

Damn fool, you don't know Anacron yet? Man, you're wrong
Bet I'm more shell-shocking when I'm rocking than a 'Nam vet
Going off from the on-set
I could dumb it down or clown around spitting grammar complex
That sideways talk ought to balance or get checked
When you talk to me, you'd better come politically correct
'cause uh, I'll White House you
and I ain't got to fake on what I'm all about, fool
I'm a warfarer jumping out of your mirror
if you call me out, Peanut Gallery torch-bearer
I rep my set, forget the rest
loyalty's my best quality from breath 'til death
Down for the homies, my partners are like kin to me
and I could be your best friend or your worst enemy
It ain't no in-between, I'm down to hold a grudge
we could get along and grow or we could beef and never budge

This is me (x4)

Proverbial Slap

Written By: Anacron

What it is young world
Peanut G's in here
And we rock it so thorough
Ya'll won't even know when to cheer
Anacron, DJ Daze
Foundations that we stand upon
hella strong, never sways
Bringing that west coast heat
Chin-check a chinchilla
Manoemusicc on the beat
trying to channel J. Dilla
with a tribute and a song
rocked with no rehearsal
Unfamous Anacron
Underground, never commercial

All we 'bout to do is what we came to do,
Thats all, that's all that's --
(x4)

Set List

Anacron is hands down one of the most entertaining performers you will ever witness in your life. Engaging the audience with an authentic and friendly demeanor, he is instantly likeable from the moment he touches the stage.

Anacron is a solo performer, but at times employs a tour DJ, a hype-man, and a 4-piece instrumental band (The Gallery Quartet), all of which are interchangeable in regards to the event and budget available.

Because Anacron has such an overwhelming amount of different types of material; underground, commercial, rap, soul, instrumental - Set lists vary depending on the venue, audience, and "feel" of the show.

Anacron's overall stage performance typically spans at anywhere from 20-45 minutes in length, again dependent on the venue, event, and allotted time.

As well as a performer, Anacron is also an experienced national club DJ that specializes in party, dance, and eclectic music blends. Double-booking Anacron for a live music performance as well as a DJ
