about

Sloth accuses unoriginality as a form of laziness, and shows dishonesty as a similar sin (particularly about legal and illegal drug relations).

lyrics

Head up in the smoke, 'cause I'm daily toking
Roll like da ocean, flow like potion
I know that I'm high, I understand the costs
So go ahead and call my ass a sloth (just screww it)

I know everybody loves that
So I go and do the same and chop and screw the damn track 
I know, I know errbody love dat
So I go and do the same and chop and screw the dayum track

You found out what'll sell you're fucking raps
So you go and do the same thing and copy other cats
It's a way to play the game but it's lazy, it lacks
The originality needed for me to like your raps
I ain't saying you can't allude, in fact I think it's rude
To not be biggin’ up the people who influenced you
Stay classy, borrow an idea, but don't match me
'Cause I'll just make a new trend...you could never pass me
I don't copyright shit, go ahead and steal my lines
But you’re sloth ass can't even keep up half the time
I'm not worried, I'm the factory of what you steal
You can't jack my swagger cause the swagger Jack wields is real
Weird is what we call the things that might be cool tomorrow now
I prefer being different, your crowd gets herded like you're cows
You'll be murdered like you're foul, you don't have your own tastes
You can't create 'cause you don't have what it takes so you take

While I do something new and they call me crazy
You clone their style so I call you lazy
And if you start to follow me they call me a boss
But you can't keep up, you're a sloth

Yeah bitch, laziness is a sin
And lying isn't, shit at heaven's gates it gets you in
I'm just blazing with my friends, yet these bitches criticize
You're sober but so what? You ain't done shit with your lives (OOO)
They tell me that I can't be productive if I get high
Unless the pharmaceuticals package that shit and then it's fine
'Cause the crackahs get their dimes, and the housewives their fix
So the man can keep the bitches on the pill and on his dick
And I don't mean birth control...they tell us that we're sick
And we need their medication so they sell us all their pricks
See I see it all as matter and the way it interacts
We're high on oxygen and sugar, nitrogen and fat
Tetrahydra cannabinol does not make you lazy
Society say it does, but I'm not, so that's crazy
‘Cause I hit the bong daily, you wrote a song lately?
I make my matter matter, drug matter doesn't make me
The maddest hatter’s greater than these mutherfuckers faking
Cause nature made the human mind amazing at making
Nothing is unnatural, there's no such thing as wrong
Hum your own tune to make a true song, don't be lazy

While I do something new and they call me crazy
You clone their style so I call you lazy
And if you start to follow me they call me a boss
But you can't keep up, you're a sloth

Head up in the smoke, 'cause I'm daily toking
Roll like da ocean, flow like potion
I know that I'm high, I understand the costs
So go ahead and call my ass a sloth (screww it)

I know, I know errbody love dat
So I go and go and chop and screw screw the dayum track 
I know, I know errbody love dat
So I go and do the same and chop and screw the dayum track....
