Sweet Talk

lyrics

The following verses are based on real messages that I received and never replied to
They do not represent my views but the views of my haters, who have low viewer counts

Shit talk me, go on and on
I'll sweet talk you, it's what I do
We're all projects, from time to time
It's about you not me, but I don't mind
(2x)

Mello don't deserve to be a musician
He's just switching MIDIs out
Kinda like them girls on twitch always with their titties out
Stealing money from true artists who work the hardest
And make it the right way, he's like parking in my driveway
I don't even wanna do my beats till he stops
And he's always sampling something, I should really call the cops
Every album that he drops, is gonna get a million listens
Only I see that he's fake and I'm not even paying attention
I don't really care that all his friends helped him get here
Sits around playing video games and eating off rev share
Not answering my DMs about his industry ties
He's got thousands of indie dollars while this industry dies
It goes on and on, it's called the remix generation
Will you make something original I'll be patiently waiting
Probably didn't even pay for your software license
Committing crimes and dropping rhymes, must just be the nicest

Shit talk me, go on and on
I'll sweet talk you, it's what I do
We're all projects, from time to time
It's about you not me, but I don't mind
(2x)

Before you hit my message box
Just give it a little thought
Is this really who you want to be
Another motherfucker who gets muted by me
You could just go for a walk
A little further than your usual block
Breathe the air, spend time with your fam
Or insult me, and I'm not gonna give a damn

These next few lyrics resembling messages I've gotten
Were so revolting that when I saw them written on the lyrics page
I actually recoiled, involuntarily

I'm a young artist looking to collab
And I definitely didn't paste this message from another tab
To another musician who needs another DM
From someone using their lab time instead to bug him HA

I know you're recovering from your company dumping you
But if you'd like to come through and grab a brew we'd love to talk to you
We got an idea, investors waiting to see, all we need
Is music that you'll make us for free? Haha


I saw your recent comments on ------- being a problem
Well I wanted to reach out and give you a way to solve it
Why don't you shut the fuck up and keep it about music
Your career is a privilege and I'd hate for you to lose it haha

Hi Mello I've been following you since blah blah blah
You inspired me to pick back up the guitar
Even your first album meant a whole lot to me
And uh, can I ask what you sampled for track 3?

Shit talk me, go on and on
I'll sweet talk you, it's what I do
We're all projects, from time to time
It's about you not me, but I don't mind
(2x)

Before you hit my message box
Just give it a little thought
Is this really who you want to be
Another motherfucker who gets muted by me
You could just go for a walk
A little further than your usual block
Breathe the air, spend time with your fam
Or insult me, and I'm not gonna give a damn

Okay, that last one wasn't so bad. I'm being a bully. I'm touched that I got you to play the guitar again... but you can't ask what I sampled while I'm on a panel

That's not hip-hop. That's not hip-hop!
I should know, I barely am
