BC: Don't throw no shit at me! Motherfuckers. (Quiet intro feedback begins) I’ll kick you in your fuckin’ jaw.
BC: We do not take requests.

What you want is what you'll get and that's nothing. Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken. And there's nothing you can throw at me that hasn't already been thrown. And there's nothing you can say that hasn't already been said. What you want is what you'll get and that's nothing. What you want is what you'll get and that's nothing.
