Track Name: Copa Mundials (produced by Josh Pan)
Every 4 years all ears to the Cup
Superfans hooligans get that vuvuzela buzz
Dominance sponsorship underdogs on the ups
Whatever happened to the Copa Mundial for the clubs

I’ll take a pair of Stan Smiths over Air Force Ones
A pair of classic Sambas on an indoor rug
3 stripes and a mic as I’m hoisting the Cup
We used to do it for the passion ayo do it for the love
I remember when the Predator debuted as a shoe
We used to rock Umbros shorts with checkers that changed their hue
Stocked up on socks for making a fashion statement
Jog a couple blocks to a park to smash some training
Long balls PKs corner kicks half-volleys
Chest traps headers thoughts of playing in college
Varsity be the letterman seniors feeling like veterans
Captaining with benevolence caption in sports sections…
On the pitch eyes of a carnivore caught in the chasing
Soccer taught me the art of war and rules of engagement
School always adjacent but my mind always awander
NO IN SEASON SMOKING MARIJUANA

Every 4 years all ears to the Cup
Superfans hooligans get that vuvuzela buzz
Dominance sponsorship underdogs on the ups
Whatever happened to the Copa Mundial for the clubs

The beautiful game the simplest rules the open-est range
The mutual adoration and lucrative fame
The youth development teams opportunities overseas
African All-Stars ending up in Ukrainian leagues
World game filled with racism hatred and greed
Yet more people play it everywhere with unabashed glee
And footie in South America free kids from favelas
And futbol on paris streets bring out banlieue dwellers
Shit is complex but the language is universal
And we all speaking the same soon as the ball leaves the circle
Sip from the same chalice manipulate with aplomb
And all have a meltdown like Zinedine Zidane
When I first ventured abroad I connected through the sport
Playing pickup on the grass or on an asphalt court
Learned the lingo multilingual avoided getting embarrassing
Always left them impressed with my skills for an American

Every 4 years all ears to the Cup
Superfans hooligans get that vuvuzela buzz
Dominance sponsorship underdogs on the ups
Whatever happened to the Copa Mundial for the clubs

I’m getting back to basics
The same boots and laces
That everyone from Maradona to Valderrama
Wore when they graced kits
Now cleats look like spaceships
And 4-5-1 is a regularly used formation
Field still regulation touchlines I still tip toe
Bout a decade since I even attempted a flip throw
My game change with age added time on the wristwatch
Sparks thoughts of parallels ‘tween soccer and Hip Hop
Their cycles of creation the poverty gap the rivals
Youth culture and colonies knocking off colonizers
The Great Unifier
Stage neutralizer
International debate forum
Suicide dives dudes'll die for
Freestyle in both and touch makes all the difference
Some’s game’s all toughness others deftness and quickness
Original can I kick it got thugs glocks and goals
Tour buses stuffed with sex drugs rock and roll
Yella Vamos Allez Ariba Ariba!
Put a country on their back take ‘em to the top of FIFA
Play with panache fashion one touch passes
St. Pauli all day and muthaf#ck a fascist
