Pimpton : All Men Are Mortal

All men are mortal, but music is eternal!

Through the song “All Men Are Mortal”, Pimpton hopes his music will transcend time and go on after his death. “All Men Are Mortal”, one of the Regina, Saskatchewan, singer’s hits, begins like a monologue and ends with a prayer for temperance. Pimpton refuses to succumb to greed and profligacy. The rapper, whose full name is Kyriel “Pimpton” Roberts, immigrated to Canada from Trinidad and Tobago at the age of 12 and combines influences of classic hip-hop, experimental music and the lyrical flow to create his own brand of hip-hop. His song, “All Men Are Mortal”, draws from social music that tends to identify with middle class struggles.

Uh.

♪♪♪

Pimp!

C.J.E., baby.

Yeah!

Yeah!

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray you walk with me

through them shadows

Be my guide

Watch them snake back niggas

They got serpents

in their spine

Help me earn mad figures

Help me be one of a kind

Help me bring light

to the darkness and illuminate

the mind pull up

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

I just pray to God

That he forgive my sins

Don't let me fry killer

Choppin' up trees

like a woodsmith

Just a young nigga

trying to get a break

Ain't gonna talk shit about it

If you want it you can get it

If it's beef mothafucka

Better pull it

Try yourself

Some said I wouldn't be here

I made reservations

You can't even be here

Now I want my A1 niggas

Who pay their own way

They're my only mothafuckers

I see here

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

And judgin' by this feeling

We are fallin' from the sky

Free fallin' money callin'

I'm just tryin'

to pick up the line

Hello can I take your order

Pop the ledge and watch'em fly

Get my 1% nigga

Get the other 99

If capacities are limited

It was put here by design

Woh there you go again

Top billin' to my niggas

You won't fall unless you climb

wow My gorilla said he wanted

1 billion I said

let our energies combine

Now it's crowns up

over everythin'

My kingdom comin'

like you masturbated

He's just tryin' to catch up

like a mashed potato

But not against the rain

Before they ask a favor

You worry about yours

While I'm tryin' to get mine

Money on my mind

Tryin' to read the sign

(...)

in a drop so I can shine

That's why I'm living my life

Dr. Frankenstein

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

But this music is immortal

So we'll always be alive

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

All men are mortal

And all mortals die

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got a

fuckin' billion before my time

Lord I pray that I got

a 100 billion before my time

Wait Pimp don't let

the greed consume you

OK 1 billion is fine

Just let a nigga buy an island

Where marijuana growin' wild

Hold up the weed was talkin'

'Cause in reality I've been

teeter-tottin between a

mortgage and a 3-room

apartment with a studio office

Bills got me fucked up

I'm a starving artist

Might paint your portrait

Then steal your porridge

Might fuck your daughter

Then live to borrow

It's a rocky shore

I don't know the future

But I know the score

If you talkin' money

Then I wanna know some more

All men are mortal

And all mortals

Pimp!

Yeah!

Yeah!

Pimp!

C.J.E.

Yeah!
