July 2012: BBC - Yeah You Know Me!





















BBC

Book babes who rock the read
Lil’ Boss drop a rhyme on 'em

BBC, how can I explain it
I'll take you frame by frame it

July we slammed some poetry hits
B is for Badass, B is for Books That Rock Temple

The last C...well...that's not that simple
It’s sort of like another way to call a club awesome
We have no letters that are missin’ here
You get on occasion at the library
As a game 'n it seems I gotta start to explainin'
Read it
KF, LL, ECM, SS, JJ, CL in the house
Readin’ and eatin’ and rappin’ at Chez J Boss and Lil Boss
Read some Atwood, read some Oliver don’t forget Rilke
Heavy are the words of Rich, disturbing those of Simic
It’s not a poem? P to the O to the E to the M
Hell yeah it’s all poetry (Boy, that’s what is scary)
It’s BBC, time for poetry awesomeness get it
Make no mistake there’s room for all lyric

So we rolled out the Mos Def and Wu Tang Clan phat
Who thinks it’s wrong to use Garage band to rap that

Well if you do, that's BBC and you're not down with it
But if you don't, here's your membership


Chorus:
You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

Who's down with BBC (Every last homie)


You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

You down with BBC (Yeah you know me)

Who's down with BBC (All the homies)
Break it down!
And the evidence follows that we may have read some Rilke, Rich and Atwood among others and even had some discussion reminiscent of a 200-level poetry class in college  - but the ladies of BBC can indeed break it down.
