Commodore84 is a Now school hip hop duo with a retro future sound and content. While drawing on familiar Old school story-telling type verses and an 80s feel sound, they also dabble in New school influences like dubstep, club and contemporary rap. Commodore84 is conscious rap that you can dance to.

Biography

Commodore84 and ALEX_one first met in a future computer in an alternate version of the past. This encounter exists on a point outside of space and time, but the fruitful results have manifested in this reality.

Commodore84, rapper extraordinaire, etch-a-sketch and pixel artist, lives to compute.

ALEX_one, producer, drummer and all around great guy, excels in excellence.

C84 + A1 have been performing for just over a year and have enjoyed an overwhelmingly positive response. They recently finished a 5 track demo that will soon be available for sale online. They also have a full length album in the works. In the mean time they will be releasing completed songs online accompanied by original pixel art animations created by Commodore84.

They will be regularly updating their sites, so come back often!

Lyrics

Are You Keeping Up

Written By: Commodore84

'Are you Keeping Up'

[chorus]

are you keeping up with the commodore?
(uh huh)
coz the commodore is keeping up with you
(yeah)
(are you keeping up) X 3
are you keeping up with the commodore?
(uh huh)
coz the commodore is keeping up with you
(yeah)
(are you keeping up) X 2

[verse 1]

Are you keeping up with the Commadore, man?
coz the Commadore is keeping up with you
you could run as fast as you can
but you won't catch me coz
running fast's doin' what I do
my calculations per second is sick
I kick it like Tekken - quick
kick it like Beckham - slick
notes in my mainframe stick
I don't use no Bic
I do it how I do
I move on the global market
digital age: I work it
I be running right on target
to win this unwinnable race
on this closed circuit
movin' in the lead
I rely on only one system
ie. me
Commadore 84
I do more with less
my score's best on the quest
just doin' as I please

[chorus]

[verse 2]

Are you keepin' up with the Commadore cous'?
coz where you're at's just where I was
I do what the future does
now
just because
I need that buzz
I need that how?
I need that why?
because I
given the choice
I couldn't pick another guy
to voice
all the shit i gotta say before I die
Oh my
don't run on the beat
you can't walk, so crawl
get up off of your feet
so no one told you at all
I'm the one to defeat?
If you're holding up the wall, then
just take a seat
you won't fall then
Commadore 84, I'm all in
with the multi-media stew in the cauldron
Commadore 8 X 8 + 20
+ A1
means the job gets done

[chorus]

[verse 3]

Commadore 84
don't delete that
's matter of fact
you best store and repeat that
at any corner you creep at
'm all for the feedback
so
if the beat attack
then i beat the beat back
all i' gotta know
is how i' gotta retweak that
i heave 'n'
hoe that
I believe 'n'
i know that
I'ma be never asleep at
the wheel
I'm not gonna stop until
all i hear is 'hop that's ill
some've got that skill
but they spit that old
tellin' what's been told
and they standin still
as i'm still
moving
constantly proving
improving
that's how i like to do things
Commadore Commadore 84
I'm keeping up with you
so would you give me more?

[chorus]

'Ass to the Gym'

[intro]

This one's for them fatties

[chorus]

Get yo' ass to the gym

just get your ass up off that couch
and get it down to the gym
it's bound to begin real' tough
keep it up
shake that stuff
once aint enough
ya need 2 3 4 times
more time means
more flex
for your ass to be trim

[verse 1]

Get yo' ass to the gym
get yo' ass to the gym
do it on a whim
it isn't a sin
be a good citizen
just shake it around
it's a real win win
gettin' into to that din din? no
wanna get slim and thin? then go
don't stand do a sit up
don't lay do a git up
and get yo' ass to the gym
you know that girth
doesn't equal worth
so why would you fill
your face like that?
you're fat with an f
when you're done none left
gotta retrieve food
with a baseball bat
could you taste all that?
coz it didn't look like it
run a mile?
man you couldn't even bike it
man i've gotta take the time to say
you've gotta lose the fat
you've got find a way

[chorus]

[bridge]

if you're a fatty then shake that batty
if you're a fatty then shake that batty
if you're a fatty then shake that batty

if you're a fatty then shake that batty
if you're a fatty then shake that batty
if you're a fatty then shake that batty
now just get yo' ass to the gym

[verse 2]

get yo' ass to the gym
you'll feel healthy
with the way that you move
that you couldn't move before
on the floor
man you'll feel stealthy
tonin' it up
with the time that you earn
from the fat that you burn
man you'll feel wealthy
and if it's of concern
you could kick off the urn
a little bit longer
feel a little bit stronger
you should get yo' ass to the gym
and you'll feel better
not when you begin
but your second wind
appetite's just a little bit wetter
then it's easy-peasy
you'll breathe better
think better
be better
and et cetera
uh uh oh come on mate
despite your creed
or sex or weight
proceed
to the gym
you'll feel great

get your ass down to that gym
(whoooo!)
you'd better find a way
to lose them pounds
and if don't
wanna shake it around
(whoooo!)
you'd better get
yo' fat ass out of town
(whoooo!)
(whoooo!)

[verse 3]

Get yo' ass to the gym
I don't even need to go to the gym
see the world is my gym
the valleys, the mountains
the hills I climb in
the rivers and the streams
and the lakes that I swim
This with a little bit of 9 to 5ing
fuck that! I don't work
I work out - I'm thriving
witness the fitness
I'm surviving
I compete for my money
so I' gotta stay driving
I'm arriving at a conclusion
I'm finding that snoozin'
often means that you're losin'
that's where you're cruisin'
for a bruisin'
concussions
and all kinda of brain contusions
quit fussin' man
I just gotta be lettin' ya know
It's nothin'
you just gotta go get the get-up and go
Get off the couch and out the do'
and get yo' ass to the gym fo' sho'

[chorus]

Nice Girls

Written By: Commodore84


'Nice Girls'

[intro]

too many hoes
too many sluts
too many times
meet a girl
that has done a friend of mine
and his friend
and his best friend
pretty much
done every boy
in the west end
too many bitches
too many whores
know that i could never
understand the allure
we got too many girls
with a too low self esteem
you aint gotta be a hoe
you know what i mean?

[verse 1]

too many hoes
be puttin' on shows
in next to no clothes
in a do-me pose
with thei' painted up toes
and stilletos
look at 'em go
willing to blow
when the boys bring blow
(oh no!)
too many sluts
gettin' done in thei' butts
on the first go
take it in the bum
if he worth dough
tongue on the nuts
at the first show
slurpin' up cum
they've a thirst yo
they say they do it
because it hurts so good
too many gold diggers
looking for riches
in my britches
why do you figure
i call them bitches
too many whores
knock knockin' on my door
rest assured
my cock's locked
in my drawers
no you won't touch my fam'ly jewels
or my family's jewels
don't talk to me as if i'm
misunderstanding the rules
where are the nice girls at
where do they go?
where are the nice girls at?
i wanna know

[chorus 1]

where are all the nice girls x3
where are the nice girls at?
where do they go?
where are all the nice girls x3
where are the nice girls at?
i wanna know

[verse 2]

where are the nice girls at
do you see 'em?
are they ridin' in the mornin'
hidin' in the PM?
do they say to themselves when they wake
"carpe diem!"
are they at the library
at the museum?
or do they sleep late like me?
up at night
lookin' for a date like me
out
sittin' in a park
sippin' on a 40 after dark
in a late night breeze?
and what if it is likely
she's in her bed
making internet
status updates nightly?
waitin' up home alone
by a touch tone telephone
for someone who plays nicely?
i play nicely
nice girls i do not take lightly
where are the nice girls?
i already know
where are the nice girls?
they're at my show!

[chorus 2]

where are all the nice girls x3
where are the nice girls at?
where do they go?
where are all the nice girls x3
where are the nice girls?
they're at my show!

[bridge]

nice girls are at my show x2
at my show
nice girls are at my show x2
they're at my show
nice girls are at my show x2
at my show
nice girls are at my show x2

[verse 3]

you aint gotta be
givin' it up
needlessly
to be livin' it up
feasibly
you can live it up easy
peasily
without going with some
sleazy greazy guy
don't make me queasy
you're better than that
you're better than 2
3 4 5 hundred of the guys
that are gunnin' for you
you're stunnin' it's true
you love to have fun in the nude
but don't you pick
the bigger dick
or the dumber the dude
i'm hardly a dick
call me the bigger man
want something to do?
then call me
we'll figure plans out
you're a nice girl
and i'm about
making your acquaintance
maybe making out
mouth maintenance
you aint gotta think
'i'm a whore!'
if you go with commodore
wantin' more
for the the first time
nice girls can be a little bit flirty
a little bit dirty
i knew i had you at the first rhyme

[chorus 2]

You're Killing Me

Written By: Commodore84

'You're Killing Me'

[chorus]

yes you're killing me girl
with the way that you move on the town
oh how you look so cute
yes you're killing me girl
i can feel it in my chest
choked up
you got me talking like a mute
yes you're killing me
you're killing me girl
I'd be lying
if I said I wasn't trying
to be careful with my words now
i'm a cunning linguist
you're stunning and distinguished girl
one could not refute
yes you're killing me

[verse 1]

oh!
i see you walking with purpose
baby like
who gave you that license to kill?
coz i
must admit i'm feeling kinda nervous
around you but
girl you is enticin' me still
coz you've
got what it takes
to be making heart aches
you could cut a man in two
what is a man to do?
all ima offer up is my hand to you
and wait and see
what you plan to do
OK?
the way you're moving in your skirt
coming over here to flirt
oh how it hurts!
but can you keep it up kitten?
i hope you're thinking what i think
then i see you drop a wink
so i blink like
baby girl oh no you didn't
i really wanna say sumthin'
to you but i can't
coz the music from the speaks is really bumpin'
now i know it that you're feelin' me
i can see it in the way you're looking at me girl
yes you're killing me

[chorus]

[verse 2]

NO WAY!
i can't believe what i'm seeing looking back
i'm hoping you don't go away
so let's
GO PLAY!
and get kinetic on the floor
i'm so frenetic
your genetics up the score
OLE!
a touch of spanish
with a dash of panache
yes girl you're a natural
BEAUTE!
with a bit of fran?ais
enchante
heating up like a flambe
(that's hot)
IN BOMBAY!
girl you're nicely spicy
wanna eat you up like an entree
ENTREE!
i'm really feelin' kinda feisty
(feisty)
like i'm gonna blow like pompeii
POMPEII!
(whoa la)
it's looking dubious
i'll be the mount vesuvius
if ima go and make the wrong play
the WRONG PLAY!
you've all the best ingredients
i'll show no disobedience
when you tell me to let the song play
OK!

[bridge]

how you gonna move like that girl?
how you gonna move like that?
OH NO!
how you gonna move like that girl?
how you gonna move like that?
(don't you know it that you're killing me?)
how you gonna move how you gonna
how you gonna move like that girl?
OH NO!
how you gonna move like that girl?
how you gonna move like that?
(don't you know it that you're killing me?)

[verse 3]

in the summer
you're a stunner
with your pony tail off to the side
tight jeans in your runners
in the winter in yer inuit jacket
i wanna get into it and tap it
underneath in a slim dress
and your leggings
girl i'm impressed
don't you know you got me begging
girl you got it
i don't wanna speak in haste
but girl i'd like a taste
when i'm looking at your bottom
in the autumn
you make me spring in the spring time
we hear the birdies outside
singing their songs
so i make us sing mine
we check the time coz
we don't know
but we don't really wanna know
because we both know that we won't go
nah we're just checking every second
every minute we been in it
and i reckon we gon' stick to the infinite
now i feel it that you're feeling me
it's coming on like a wave
girl it's you that i crave
coz you're killing me!

'Dome Money'

[chorus]

gotta get my dome money x3
gotta get mine gotta get my dome
(repeat x2)

[verse 1]

gotta get a spot in that dome
just in case
a space to call my own
tucked in away
i'd be fucked if i stayed
outside when its on
i be the com 84
i wanna maybe be 89
maybe more
you wanna climb on the age report
you gotta save
and then you pay the fine
or else stay behind
i gotta get in that dome
worst case
a place to call my home
if we go eco
mishap i'll be the first to the case
gotta get a spot to be at
when shit goes shite i react
to see that
i got my dome
gotta get a spot to breathe at
gotta get my dome money
my own money isn't much
i'm short
so i gotta get more
and i'm moving forth as such
my order's tall
but i feel as though
my back is against the wall
gotta get mine gotta get my dome
'fore the shit commence to fall
gotta gotta get it get it get it

[chorus]

[verse 2]

gotta gotta getta gotta get that cash
gotta getta gotta get that dough
i don't really wanna go and get that cash
i just really wanna take it slow
but i gotta hit fast
if i wanna hit max in my class
gotta go maximize my show
gotta get that flash
but i make that shit from scratch
and this you already know
gotta save that cash for the dome
why? 'cause i can't apply for a loan
what you thinking that
i'd go
to the bank
't's not like buying a home
i need a dome
that's good and secure
got guards with guns
if you aint got the funds
your ass'd best detour
it's a drastic recourse
but hell
have you smelled
the air
out there
compared
to before

[bridge]

i can't breathe out herr
can you breathe out herr
i can't breathe out herr
it must be the uhrr
must be the uhrr
ok now
(reapeat x2)

[chorus] x2

[verse 3]

Gotta get my dome money
What you think it's funny?
I'm serious
as bright
as shines the light
from the star of sirius
mysterious
but delirious
got my plans written on papyrus
if your query is
what my theory is
you should look check out my iris
i'm focused
like osiris
hocus pocus
don't shut your eyelids
cut the violence
now's not a time to be runnin' amok
with the rich stuck up in islands
it's not hopeless
disrupt the silence
at times i look inside for guidance
coz when i look outside
it seems like we act like a virus
and don't buy it
gotta get my dome money
for my domecile
gotta breathe my air in style
need cash for the water
cash for the rent
need cash for the projectiles
need cash for the miscelaneous
extraneous
pressure
wanna live in leisure
in my safe erection
wost faced reaction
in a worst case projection
