Reignman

As an homage to the fairest daddy of them all this Father's Day Weekend, Cadillac Mescallade gives us an ode to shawn kemp, the original reign man.

"Reignman"

Forty ounces to freedom
he forgets what he's become

never used the mirror for reflection
the perfect surface for the street confection

got the sniffles nothin' to blame on the weather
can't lay off the coke it's become his new pleasure

had a fan base spread wide like pepper mace
seattle's ace in the hole, now he holds a sad place

when the drugs wore off his mouth remained open wide
hit the drive thru, couldn't pick one-- ordered every side

took the flack, made a comeback, attacked the rack
couldn't cut it, didn't make it, pounded a six pack

so many hi-lites, big dunks to remember, the lobs above all
can someone explain how shawn kemp messed up basketball

the number 40 still hangs in my closet, a middle school relic
yeah he's a bum give'em one more shot, make'em a celtic

fans wanna see one more two-handed jam
give it up to the coverboy of slam

an ode to shawn kemp, the original reign man
