Listen: Busdriver Covers Busta Rhymes’ “Why Stop Now” For Christmas

    Because he’s a complete nut — and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible — L.A.lien Busdriver decided that he would rework Busta Rhymes’ new Chris Brown-featured single, “Why Stop Now.” And rather than solely flaunt his unfuckwithable speed-rapping skills, Busdriver turned the track into a hilarious look at consumerism just in time for the holidays. He completely runs with the track’s hook of “why stop now, we can buy anything!” and uses it to detail his frantic shopping trip to Wal-Mart and other mega-stores. You can stream the track and read all the lyrics below. You might need to play it a few times to fully grasp everything.

    Chris Brown: yeah, we can do anything…

    Busdriver: That we want!

    CB: Walk into anywhere and buy anything!

    BD: within reason

    CB: I be chilling, I ain’t worried about anything

    BD: I’m Christmas Shopping nigga!

    CB: Why Stop now I could have everything

     

    BD: I’m at Walmart like

    CB: I can have everything

    BD: I’m at Target like…

    CB: I can have everything

    Bd: I’m at the Urban Outfitters like…

    CB: I can have everything! Why Stop now, I could have everything

     

    BD: Leaving all the rappers on the planet with a stomach cramp

    All you motherfuckers know that this ain’t summer camp

    its a meeting at Coco’s with media moguls

    Throwing money at my feet as I do jumping jacks

    all you bitches are hollow/my dick you can swallow

    like Mitch McConnell/kicking it at McDonald’s

    I’m on the corner of Alvarado with a big Chicano

    holding a avacado and a water bottle making all the bottoms wobble

     

    WHAT THE FUCK YOU DOING FOR CHRISTMAS THOUGH!

     

    Filling my apartment with the holiday cheer

    so I roll to work riding on a reindeer like…

    when I decorate the company party

    I always get this right with Christmas lights like…

    mark your shit off the Christmas list

    But I don’t really have no Christmas plans

    I’m probably just going to overeat then fall asleep 

    All due to the tryptophan

    I’m helping out at the homeless shelter

    Looking exactly like Santa’s helper

    I spilled little bit cranberry sause on my suit

    now do you have a can of seltzer 

    This motherfucker ate all the turkey

    what should I do with this pop tart

    I guess I ain’t really got to do shit

    except put more shit in my shopping cart like…

     

     

    CB: yeah, we can do anything…

    BD:anything

    CB: Walk into anywhere and buy anything!

    BD: kind of

    CB: I be chilling, I ain’t worried about anything

    BD: with my debit card… gift cards for everybody

    CB: Why Stop now I could have everything

     

    BD: I’m at Walmart like

    CB: I can have everything

    BD: I’m at Target like…

    CB: I can have everything

    Bd: I’m at the Urban Outfitters like…

    CB: I can have everything! Why Stop now, I could have everything

     

    I’m having an awkward convo 

    with my Libertarian aunt about the tax code

    even though I’m well over thirty my grandparents

    got me this G.I. Joe bathrobe

    talking to my teenage cousin

    about he latest foray into drug abuse

    And I picked the better Christmas sweater

    at the dinner table, duck duck goose

    I have a white Christmas after Black Friday

    with my Jewish girlfriend and my Puerto Rican A&R

    they know that my gift giving always raises the bar

    give me that XBox!

    Or get a tased scrotum or baked ovum

    I’m bankrolling, to the point when I’m in the mall even though it ain’t open

    I’m at the check out counter

    with a megaphone singing Christmas carols 

    When I die, keep all of my shit

    just like an Egyptian pharaoh 

    on Christmas Eve 

    my house looks like a packed rave

    We’re celebrating Sinterklaas’s Cocoa-Cola contract

    with his black slaves

     

    CB: yeah, we can do anything…

    BD: like buy a stainless steel juicer

    CB: Walk into anywhere and buy anything!

    BD: like a new stainless steel juicer

    CB: I be chilling, I ain’t worried about anything

    BD: if you loved me you buy me this stainless steel juicer

    CB: Why Stop now I could have everything

     

    BD: I’m at Walmart like

    CB: I can have everything

    BD: I’m at Target like…

    CB: I can have everything

    Bd: I’m at the Urban Outfitters like…

    CB: I can have everything! Why Stop now, I could have everything
