Straight Outta .Compton

A collection of gansta rap lyrics inspired by dot com marketing copy (and vice versa). Check your E*trade account, take a sip of your 40 oz., sit back, and enjoy these dope lyrics and some wack copywriting.


My site's as sticky as a mack daddy's jimmy
my biz model's doper than Eminem's Slim - yes he's
Shady like Pixelon / Large as Enormicon
But I'm dropping mad cheddar on H. Miller Aeron

My burnrate makes boo look like scrooge before Christmas
My site ignores rulez from that Zeldman guy's List - must
All playa haters insist on a cash flow?
Franklins come later. For now it's more Flash 4.

I'm boring the eyeballs all staring at PCs
Pour 40 mil out for my dead dotcom VCs

Straight Outta E-Com

You are now about to witness the strength of e-knowledge

Straight outta e-commerce, crazy motherfucker named Amazon
The canonical internet bookseller from the gang called "dot com"
When I'm called off, I got a sawed-off
Squeeze the trigger, and IPOs are hauled off
You too will pay if you fuck with me
The police are gonna have to come get me
Off your ass, that's how I'm goin' out
For the punk motherfucker that's showin' out
Crackers fuck 'em up, and want to rumble
Mix 'em in, cook 'em in a pot like gumbo
Goin' off on a motherfucker like that
With a gat that's pointed at
Your ass, so give it up smooth,
Ain't no tellin' when I'm down for a jack move
Here's a rap that keep you dancin'
Amazon with the Earth's Biggest Selection
WWW is the tool
Don't make me act the motherfuckin' fool
Me and you could go toe to toe, no "maybe"
I'm knockin' IPOs out the box, daily
Yo, weekly, monthly, yearly
Until them dumb motherfuckers see clearly
That I'm down with a capital AMZN
Boy, you can't fuck with me
So when I'm in your neighboorhood, you better duck
'Cause Amazon is crazy as fuck
As I leave, believe I'm stompin',
But when I come back, boy, I'm comin' straight outta E-Com
