about

A tribute to a few unsung heroes who paved the way.

lyrics

He Had a dream it would rise up and elevate,
Pictured a day that we all got to celebrate,
And by creating a term, he was spawning a movement of rappers who waited their turn
To speak about being outcasts and coding and things
Rather than controlling a lane
The flow was insane
My homies assumed it wasn't real,
Then they were blown away by the brothers skill
This wasn't parody
And every word was emoted with an astounding level on clarity
And then the documentary-
It wasn't all complimentary
I felt a kindred kinda energy
So Colorful and lovable
Made our own skin feel so comfortable
Nerdcore rose up, and that's wonderful
We all owe it to the MC who Fronts the most


CHORUS
I want it all..
Put my name up on the wall in the hall of fame
But the time I'm done here
the whole world gone know the name
Rushmore...
put me up on Rushmore...
Till I'm up on Rushmore
with the ones who changed the game

Verse 2

A chance meeting with an animator,
would turn a mild mannered comic to a major player
Yeah, Quick witted with a distinctive voice,
now the networks have made him their choice
a recurring character on a hit show
No more struggle now it's time to get dough
Took on the road, to sold out shows
Fanbase grows, highs then lows,
He read a negative tweet
Kicked the kid out the club instead of letting it be,
This could've killed his career
But thanks to dedicated audiences he still here
Respect Deserves a lot more than he gets
He brought a certain former teacher on tour when he quit
For the talent and overcoming the challenge, mc, you hall of fame, first ballot
No doubt about it

CHORUS
I want it all..
Put my name up on the wall in the hall of fame
But the time I'm done here
the whole world gone know the name
Rushmore...
put me up on Rushmore...
Till I'm up on Rushmore
with the ones who changed the game

Verse 3

Stanford grad with a gift of gab
Bred in Punk rock but decided to hit the lab
And spit some raps-- about literature classics,
With commercial appeal When it hit it was massive
A bundle of energy on or off stage,
And it isn't an act, he's on one all day
Complex with mad flows and concepts
Nerd rap was making some progress
We even rocked a world tour
50 dates, but I'm unsure which one of us learned more
Picked up my freestyle bit,
But everybody does it, who could call a freestyle bit,
True Player for real, no doubt he got hits,
And it wouldn't surprise me a bit if he got rich
Post punk laptop to lit hop it's hip hop
unquestionably He earned his spot

CHORUS
I want it all..
Put my name up on the wall in the hall of fame
But the time I'm done here
the whole world gone know the name
Rushmore...
put me up on Rushmore...
Till I'm up on Rushmore
with the ones who changed the game
