  • Copycats 12" White Vinyl (Misprint)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Copycats 12" limited white-color vinyl. There were a handful of disks that came with black markings created by the pressing manufacturers. These markings look like scuffs, but do not affect the playback in anyway. I was assured by Mobineko that this often occurs due to standard black material remaining on the press as it completes one project and moves to a new color. This happens frequently with other pressings, but white makes the material much more noticeable.

    Some people consider misprints more collectible. That's great. Either way, I won't decide the value of these misprints, but will keep them at the original price point for those interested in "unique" and/or anomaly prints.

about

Lyrics:

y’all copy cats killed the game a while ago
I seen you staring at the menu like a pile of gold
y’all dish taste like a dry salad bowl
if you disappear no, I’m not sad at all

i heard imitation is a form of flattery
no imagination whatsoever, what kind of sorcery
I mean where’s the magic of originality
the rare element of surprise the ingenuity
ever since the pioneers gone the airwaves got polluted
if the culture was a store it got looted
coming up always the excuse no matter who did
the deed so to speak, but the dead don’t talk,
now the bullshit walk
this ain’t about old or new, or me versus you
it’s about are you fresh or are you wack,
definitely not the shoes
I’m not with them dudes, I’ve already paid my dues
y’all copy cats can’t look me in the eyes
how many times I had turned a blind eye
down to the font on the print, I no lie
I pay my respects, but I never idolize

y’all copy cats killed the game a while ago
I seen you staring at the menu like a pile of gold
y’all dish taste like a dry salad bowl
if you disappear no, I’m not sad at all

don’t get me started on these fools, I’m capping
y’all copy cats beat a dead horse then beat your meat to it
don’t come at me with that weak shit
I’ll see to it that my beats hit like a hot sewage
tried to lift the formula, but the key ingredients
missing from your recipe is the granular
old school grind sweat and tears so cheers
nothing you can download fast, it takes years
terabyte torrent when it rains it’s pouring
real pain bore these lyrics, it’s boring
to hit the pavement in the morning to make payments
life is the furthest from entertainment
distraction is in order, can’t afford to
waste precious time with the unimportant
the question is what do I do till I die
and fyi, I’m still diy

y’all copy cats killed the game a while ago
I seen you staring at the menu like a pile of gold
y’all dish taste like a dry salad bowl
if you disappear no, I’m not sad at all
