Biography

Born in Phoenix, AZ, raised in Niagara Falls, ON, schooled in Toronto, ON, and currently based in Montréal, QC, T-CUP is a fun, funky, and f-f-f-fresh emerging bilingual female mc.

She began writing funny rhymes in English and French and rapped them with an oldschool flow over hiphop and electro beats.

In 2009, she finally got the guts to hit the stage and since then has rocked both hip hop and alternative comedy shows, most notably her performance with Mother Gang at Pop Montréal as they opened for Roxanne Shante.

T-CUP is busy spreading good vibes and safe sex awareness around Montréal but dreams of performing in Toronto, New York City, and beyond in the near future. She is currently writing and recording her first album and working with producers from Toronto and Montréal.

Lyrics

The Condom Song

Written By: T-CUP

Heyyyy! I wanna get with you!
Hooooo! I know you want me, too!
But yooooo! We don't live in the zoo!
If you wanna do me, rock a condom and be cool!

Yeah, I know, condoms cost money
And yea, I know, they smell kinda funny
But do you know how much an abortion costs?
Probably as much as an albatross!
I don't got that kind of money
And getting pregnant is not funny!
You're not gonna drive a baby carriage
And I'm not gonna take your hand in marriage
We don't need that kind of drama
I'm not gonna be your baby mama
Let's be smart and realistic
There's one step it's so simplistic:

Put a condom on your dick!
Put a condom on your dick!
Put a condom on your dick!
Just put a condom on your dick!

"But girl with a condom, it's not the same"
I could get pregnant, are you insane?
Birth control, I quit it, it fucked with my head
So we're better off using condoms instead
I got my Durex stashed under my bed
So put one on, or you're not gettin' head!

I'm not joking, yo, this shit is for real
Safe sex is the new black,
And you know what?
Everyone's doin' it!
Safe sex is super-cool and a lot of fun!

Hey dude, rock a condom
Rock rock, rock a condom
If you really want some
Rock rock, rock a condom

Put a condom on your dick!
Put a condom on your dick!
Put a condom on your dick!
Just put a condom on your dick!

Aids! Chlamydia! Gonorrhea!
Unsafe sex is a bad idea!
If you don't co-operate, I'll say "see ya!"
If you got STD's I wouldn't wanna be ya

Ew, no offence but it's true
If you got somethin' weird goin' on down there,
Go to the clinic and get yourself checked out,
PEACE!

Hustlin'

Written By: T-CUP

Holy shit, what the fuck! My life's a mess
I'm buried underneath a pile of debts
I'm part of the recession yet I have no regrets
Maybe I could get rich off of gambling and bets

Gonna wax my legs and put on a party dress
Then throw on my shoes and run away from this stress
Gonna smoke some weed that came from out west
Cuz everyone knows that shit is the best!

Inhale, puff puff, exhale, pass
You gotta chill out and laugh
Inhale, puff puff, exhale, pass
It feels so good, mmm, oh yeah!

Oh my god, times are gettin' tough in this fuckin' recession
But listen up and I will teach you a lesson
Do you know what time it is?

It's time to hustle,
Flex your muscles,
Chase your dreams
And eat various ice creams

It's time to kick it up a notch,
Do a shot of scotch,
Think fast like a fox,
And pull up your socks!

Money, money, money, I need it so bad
To pay my rent so my landlord doesn't get mad
Last month I paid all the money I had
And now I'm broke again man this sucks so bad

Rent, groceries, and credit cards
Cell phone, student loan, yo forget a car
Gas prices have gone right through the roof
And I need a root canal in my fuckin' tooth!

Oh my god, times are gettin' tough in this fuckin' recession
But listen up and I will teach you a lesson
Do you know what time it is?

It's time to hustle,
Flex your muscles,
Chase your dreams
And eat various ice creams

It's time to kick it up a notch,
Do a shot of scotch,
Think fast like a fox,
And pull up your socks!

I come up with crazy schemes to make a buck or two
It's quite hilarious the shit that I will do
Sell shit on the black market real slick
Serve drinks in a bar to make some tips
I sell cupcakes on the street just for kicks
And I do contract work cuz that'll do the trick

Oh my god, times are gettin' tough in this fuckin' recession
But listen up and I will teach you a lesson
Do you know what time it is?

It's time to hustle,
Flex your muscles,
Chase your dreams
And eat various ice creams

It's time to kick it up a notch,
Do a shot of scotch,
Think fast like a fox,
And pull up your socks!

Yo I'm body-rockin' it,
Non-stoppin' it,
Chart-toppin' it,
Keepin' it real cuz I'm hip-hoppin' it

Let's hear that again

I'm body-rockin' it,
Non-stoppin' it,
Chart-toppin' it,
Keepin' it real cuz I'm hip-hoppin' it

...and I'm out!

Ça va?

I see you walkin' down the street
Lookin' so fresh, lookin' so neat
Rockin' a style you can call your own,
Man you look so cute, I wanna take you home
So I walk up and say "Hello"
"How you doin' today, do you smoke hydro?"
Next thing I know, we're smokin' weed and chillin'
And what more can I say? Top billin'!
And I'm wonderin' if you are willin'
Is it just me or are you feelin'
This electric energy, this heat, this chemistry
I can see it in your eyes that you are into me
Take my hand, kiss my face, be my man
Look into my eyes and say you understand

Bonjour, allô, salut, ça va?
Ne soyer pas timide, n'hésiter pas
Une deuxième chance n'est pas toujours là
Vas-y, vas-y, faire le premier pas
Aller prend-moi dans tes bras
Venir en dessous de mes draps!
Ceci n'est pas un contrat

Parce qu'on ne sait que jamais
Qu'est-ce qui va arriver demain
Vivre chaque moment dans le présent
Parce que ça peut changer le lendemain

Live it up, every minute, every day
Be true to yourself in every way
Don't forget to laugh and play
Follow your heart and you'll be okay
