[Intro: VIC MENSA & Chance the Rapper]
That’s ten minutes
What you got?
[Verse: Chance the Rapper]
I got a bar about a bar
It’s not a joke, it’s just a bar
A nigga walks into a bar
Took his seat, he liked his liquor hard, his women easy
Legend has it, he was callous like fingers that pick guitars
He was just a hick that parked his pickup truck ’cause it was dark to take a piss
The road was long, the line was long as shit
He thought about it, held it in and sipped his straw
Ashed out his cigar and walked out into his car
Forget that nigga, there was a line inside the bar
And the line was so long it wrapped behind the bar
And exposed moonshine and wine inside the jar
And it kept goin’ to the alley and the trash behind the bar
To the same nigga, he was takin’ a piss behind his car
The nigga in the front seen that this shit was out of order
The nigga in the back seen that the meter’s out of quarters
The patrons and the little wished this line was way shorter
I would tell you their names, but they names is unimportant
[Outro: Chance the Rapper]
Is what I got so far
