In verse 1 of this track Klopfenpop raps a bunch of bars, and then raps only the prime numbered words (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13...) to create a chorus. Then in verse 2 I use the exact same prime numbered words in the same order to write a new series of bars, so the chorus remains the same.

lyrics

(Prime numbered words in all caps)


Well IT'S TIME for THIS methodical MIND to get it STARTED.
I’m RUNNIN’ hot, burnin' diesel ON my PRIME target.
I’ve got THE directive to kill
all undue NUMBERS, disposing WITH composite and nill.

And then PRECISELY I’m eliminatin’ negative, TOO.
It FACTORS right into the WRITIN’ of this verse.
Imbued with RHYMES composed of individual words,
conveyed WITH rhythm, THE factors are articles and verbs.

MATHEMATICAL prose with these SPECS they’re ON sum.
When you go to CHECK your answers the BEST is yet to come.
I BREAK the conventions of that hip hop schtick.
OUT for blood, kill YOUR preconceptions.
TEXT is the rift

FOR settin’ YOUR mind free, your BRAIN let out of its cage.
‘Cuz I’m about to repeat this verse--it GETS strange,
‘cuz the WRECKED manner that I retain only PRIME
shows OBSESSION on the part of the author of this rhyme.

It’s time this mind started runnin’ on prime,
the numbers with precisely two factors writin’ rhymes
with the mathematical specs, on check.
Best break out your text ‘fore your brain gets wrecked. Prime Obsession.

Promulgating Rhymes.
Intrinsically Mathematic, Every One Behind
Scenes Exuding Symptomatic Signs,
Indications Of Neurotic
Prime obsession.

When IT'S TIME for THIS your MIND primally slips
you STARTED finally RUNNING your mouth right ON tricks
PRIME numbers permit but THE tricks are for kids
your NUMBERS admit WITH chagrin you got whipped
now PRECISELY strike like lightning
TO your FACTOR'S fractures in your WRITING, omit the glitz
If your RHYMES can't miss I'm a scientist
WITH degrees THE likes of Celsius
Back from MATHEMATICAL sabbatical and putting SPECS
right ON the bridge of your nose; CHECK the manual:
"the BEST linguistic blitz is understandable
now BREAK out your pen and I can tag OUT your annual"
If YOU'RE expecting TEXT to be plain, FOR shame!
YOUR claims restrain your BRAIN, I'm your tutor,
let this vision attain to a mission -
one that truly GETS you awake
I've WRECKED the rest so now I PRIME my OBSESSION with the refrain

It’s time this mind started runnin’ on prime,
the numbers with precisely two factors writin’ rhymes
with the mathematical specs, on check.
Best break out your text ‘fore your brain gets wrecked. Prime Obsession.

Promulgating Rhymes.
Intrinsically Mathematic, Every One Behind
Scenes Exuding Symptomatic Signs,
Indications Of Neurotic
Prime Obsession.

about

MC117 Redmond, Washington

New merch! tee.pub/lic/VAcbB0o-soo

Mocking music that takes itself a little (or a lot) too seriously, MC 117 produces pan-referential straight-faced commentary of hip hop, video games, and pop culture at large. Focusing on audial allusions and lyrical sleight-of-hand, this satire auteur carves his own genre in the fertile ground between "knockoff" and "ripoff". ... more
