Droppin’ Monsters (A Bookshelf Q. Battle Rap)

Oh my God, 3.5 readers.  Oh my God.

Sit all 3.5 of your butts down for this.

So, as you know, back in the day I was one half of the rap duo known as The Funky Hunks.  My partner MC Plotz and I were a hit with the late 1990s/early 2000s soccer moms what with our squeaky clean lyrics.

Alas, time moved on and my rhyme spinning days are long behind me, but my lyric writing game is still pretty sweet, so I found a rapper on artist who goes by the handle I_Will_Rap.  He’s got mad crazy skills and he’ll rap whatever you want for a reasonable price.

Anyway.  Without further ado, I present to you the debut of the new hit single, sure to take the hip hop world by storm and it’s so good that it may even unite East and West Coast rappers together in a new era of peace, love and understanding: Droppin’ Monsters.

DROPPIN’ MONSTERS (A Bookshelf Q. Battle Rap)

Lyrics by: Bookshelf Q. Battler

Beats Dropped and Rhymes Rapped by I_Will_Rap

Yo. 2017. Time to make the green.
Bookshelf Q. Battler droppin monsters like a bad habit.
Let’s do this thing. Time to get paid, ya dig?

You roll up to your crib and there’s a vampire inside.
Call on BQB to do the wooden stake slide.
But oh my god a zombie wants my brains!
Better get BQB to make it rain the pain.
What’s that in my yard? A chupacabra goat sucker?
BQB grab your nine, pop a cap in that mother (bleep).

When it comes to fighting evil, BQB is the best.
Forces of darkness don’t even try it, this is a nerd you do not want to test.

East Randomtown is the dope ass hood where this bespectacled pimp resides.
He’s chillin in his headquarters, the fly ass hunnies won’t be denied.
BQB is a badass monster hunter, you know that is a fact.
So if you’re a demon straight outta hell, he’ll put you on your back.

One day while BQB was writing,
On his blog called bookshelfbattle.com
There was a sound that was oh so frightening
So he said, “what’s going on?”
He ran downstairs to his living room and what oh what did he see?
A fat ass yeti sitting on his couch, eating his food and watching TV.

“I live in your house forever now,” the Yeti said.
“I’m taking over this fabulous place.”
But that idea filled BQB with dread
So he round house kicked the Yeti right in the face.

Yeah, BQB is droppin monsters.
Ghosts and goblins and werewolves too.
That nerd is gonna do a drive by.
On anything that dares to shout, “boo!”

But when BQB’s not dropping a monstrous reprobate,
He’s writing a dope ass story.
He’s gonna save the world from the Mighty Potentate,
And get his ass some glory.

So don’t forget to check bookshelfbattle.com
For news of BQB’s daring do.
And if you are a monster,
BQB is coming for you.

Damn. That was some sweet ass shit.
3.5 readers my ass. Bookshelf Q. Battler should have all the (bleep) readers.

Top Ten Reasons Why March is the Worst


Oh March.  If the rest of the year is the Three Stooges, then you are the Shemp.  No one really wants to see you but what the hell, you’re here, we’re here, so we’ll do this thing anyway.

From Bookshelf Q. Battler Headquarters in fabulous East Randomtown, it’s the Top Ten Reasons Why March is the Worst:

#10 – You Have to Finally Admit the New Year Has Begun (And Start Working on Your Resolutions)

Yeah, on January 1 you said you go on a diet but by January 2 you were at McDonalds telling the drive-thru worker to just hook a Big Mac IV up to your veins.

“Oh, I’ll start my diet tomorrow,” you said…for two frigging months!  Now March is here.  Christmas and New Year’s is so far in the rearview mirror now.  You have run out of excuses to procrastinate.  Start sucking on rice cakes and tap water already.

(Sigh.  No one sue me, please.  I doubt rice cakes and tap water is a good diet plan.  If you are fat and want to be not fat, see a doctor.  I’m just an asshole with a blog so what do I know?)

#9 – There’s No Day Off

What the eff?  We’re fresh off a string of Thanksgiving in November, Christmas in December, MLK day in January, Presidents’ Day in February and now you’re going to tell me that we have to work this whole month straight through?

Son of a bitch.  It’s like the Nazis won.

#8 – Everyone Uses St. Patrick’s Day as an Excuse to Drink

St. Patrick’s day.  It’s a celebration of Irish pride and also that time when a man beat the shit out of a bunch of snakes with a stick until they left Ireland, thus earning him the right to be a called a saint.

Celebrating this holiday requires you to dress in green, put on a cardboard leprechaun hat, and drink a lot.  It’s literally the only holiday where engaging in ethnic stereotypes is not only welcome but encouraged.

In theory, it seems like this could be a good holiday until everyone just uses it as an excuse to get wasted on a weekday.

#7 – The Ides of March

This is when Julius Caesar got the royal screw job from his good friend, Brutus.  Et tu, Brute?

Beware the Ides of March.  They are full of backstabbery and douchebaggery.

#6 – The Weather is Schizophrenic

It’ll be super cold so I have to be on a super warm coat.  Then it’ll be slightly chilly so I’ll have to put on a light coat.  I have to keep a smorgasbord of coats out and it becomes anarchy.  Anarchy, I say!

#5 – March Madness

All year long people pretend like they are shit at math and then suddenly the dumbest people are putting together ten foot long flow charts of which college basketball team is going to beat who.  These charts are so intricate that you need a slide rule and a calculator to figure them out and even then you might need a college math professor to explain them to you.

Even worse, people start pools.  They ask you to bet money.  You don’t want to but you don’t want to seem like a dick but you also don’t want to admit you don’t understand what any of that flowchart bullshit means.  “Yeah, put a hundred on uh that team to beat that team and that team and…here, just take the money.  Just take the money and go away.”

#4 – Midterms

I’m old as shit but as I recall, this is when the young people have exams?  I don’t remember because in my day, exams consisted of having to fight a charging wildebeest with your bare hands.  Every subject.  Fight a wildebeest.  Math?  Wildebeest.  Science? Wildebeest.  Home economics?  Wildebeest.  If you could defeat the wildebeest over and over, you were considered proficient enough to move on with your life and move up a grade.

#3 – Spring Break

Also, isn’t this the time when the young people go on Spring Break?  Sigh.  I could never afford Spring Break.  Also, I didn’t have you know, one of those sets of parents who you could just say, “Give me lots of money so I can go to a tropical paradise and frolic naked with a bunch of naked drunk idiots and make poor decisions” and then have said parents be like, “Sure!  Take the requisite amount of money to make that happen!”

So maybe if you’re a youngster, March doesn’t suck so bad then.  It sucks for me though because now I do have the requisite amount of money required to go to a tropical environment and engage in poor decision making, but I’m too old to do so.

#2 – March is Suddenly the New Blockbuster Month

The past couple of years, Hollywood is so flush with superhero flicks that they spread some of them out to March.  They figure if the movies are great, people will see them even if it is March.  If they suck, then better movies have a chance to thrive in the summer without this shitburger stinking up the summer season.

“Batman vs. Superman.”  Ugh.  Say no more.

#1 – Sometimes Easter Happen in March, Sometimes it Doesn’t

It’s like, sometimes Easter happens in March but more often it happens in April.  So March can’t even be relied upon to always bring about a holiday in which the savior’s resurrection is celebrated by hiding eggs and biting the ears off of chocolate bunnies.l
