    Lyrics

    (It's Esoteric, rest in peace)

    Yo Friday night, feelin' right, fuckin' with this bad chick
    Gats click, now I'm hit, shit, watch the blood spit
    I fall face down, background is H-Town
    Needle drag, music stops, people call the cops
    For a rap cat, shot dead in the back
    Over a dame, for some reason of which I cannot explain
    My name was little known at this time
    'Less we use the Boston, Mass as the measuring line
    My crime bein waxed, redirects, people's TV's set
    Maybe you're seein the checks, or see 'em as threats
    My fam cries at the wake, some guys do steaks
    With their eyes on my tape, realizin my surprisin fate
    Ten-to-five covered, then from five-to-eight
    Now the average rap fan starts to gravitate
    To the Ese-Esoteric, to see if they were sleepin'
    On a dope MC whose skills need peepin

    It's tough stayin' underground when you're six feet deep
    And major labels profit off of that, but then there's freak
    (It's Esoteric rest in peace)
    And now everybody's checkin' for my posthumous release
    (Death is a final step)
    "You know dead rappers get better promotion"
    "Death is a final step!"

    Check now as I look down, it's kinda tough swallowin'
    The fact that I'm a dead rapper with a cult followin'
    Legions of fans got their hands on my old jams
    And new fans, they were sayin' "Oh damn!"
    At every punchline, and now the rumors break and hit
    'Cause everybody knew that I was workin' on some new shit
    Cats askin, "Who's on it? Who produced it?"
    Straight up, just ask deceased, let the man {"rest in peace"}
    All my old friends are now sayin' that's a spiritual
    My mother wants my material
    Girlfriends sayin' that I'm lyrical, fightin over rights
    Sellin' RIP t-shirts at open mics
    Fans thought the East/West was comin' to South
    Got the Source van in front of my house
    XXL and Elemental runnin' their mouth
    Got my dad depressed, he's bout to flip, put a gun in his mouth

    It's tough stayin' underground when you're six feet deep
    And major labels profit off of that, but then there's freak
    (It's Esoteric rest in peace)
    And now everybody's checkin' for my posthumous release
    (Death is a final step)
    "You know dead rappers get better promotion"
    "Death is a final step!"

    Now majors havin bidding wars, and deals on the table
    Labels unstable 'cause my face is on cable
    Even underground critics say that I'm the best that did it
    Even though they shitted on my last hit-it
    I don't get it, Sony pimped me up in a week
    And now my acapella's flowin' over wack commercial beats
    They shot my video, with an Esoteric stunt double
    In a Lex bubble, sayin' it was footage from the night before the trouble
    No red tape, just sample clearances and mad guest appearances
    (Like who?) A lot of guys whom I never authorized
    As my mother looks into the skies to apologize
    Although I'm dead mom, my soul remains undaunted
    Now you can actually afford the things you wish you flaunted
    And even though every studio will be haunted
    I finally got the major label budget that I wanted

    It's tough stayin' underground when you're six feet deep
    And major labels profit off of that, but then there's freak
    (It's Esoteric rest in peace)
    And now everybody's checkin' for my posthumous release
    (Death is a final step)
    "You know dead rappers get better promotion"
    "Death is a final step!"
