This is a rap about a mean bee. The song was inspired by an actual bee who used to dive-bomb me while I sat outside and wrote raps at my old apartment in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I'm not allergic to bees, or particularly scared of them normally, but this thing was so confrontational that I did actually feel compelled to run away from it in fear and hide in my hallway. This BEEf was going down in the summer of 2008; I looked up the average lifespan of bees on Wikipedia, and it's several months at best. But while the bee who was the subject of this song is definitely dead by now, I hope this video will make him immortal.

Now I live in Los Angeles, where I recorded this song at my friend Nice Peter's house/studio....Pete directed and edited the video, and he also animated the bee. The beat was produced by my DJ, Upryz, also known as Daniel Fox; you can see more of what he does at http://upryz.com. And you can also buy the official album version of "Aggressive Bee" here: http://bit.ly/aggressivebee. It's from "MC Mr. Napkins: The Album" (Comedy Central Records), available now on iTunes and Amazon and a million other online retailers.

Thanks to everyone who's been encouraging me to put more videos up on the Comments page....they're coming. :)

PEACE

"The Aggressive Bee"
(Spoken: Yeah...I have this porch at my apartment where I like to sit outside and write my rhymes...it's not a bad place to work, but there's this bee with a nest nearby that always flies up in my face while I'm writing. Yo...)

I call him the Aggressive Bee
He flies at me aggressively
He seems to like to mess with me
WIth fear I see the Aggressive Bee

Check it out now:
Yesiree, don't think less of me
But I'm afraid of the Aggressive Bee
Especially when he attacks
And I'm just minding my own beeswax
I try to freeze and breathe deeply
Try to wait out the bee till he leaves me
But he won't let me be
So I get the "Let me be, bee!" heebie-jeebies
Got my defenses up
My teeth clench, whole body tenses up
Should I sing "Roxanne" or something?
'Cause that little jerk is all about Sting...
Does he buzz? Sure he does.
He's furious. I'm surr-ious!
Not a joke for your funnybone.
He's the Attila the Hun of the honeycomb!

There is a pair of wings on the fellow
And a ring of black and a ring of yellow
And he gets me wound tight like a string on a cello
He makes me want to fricking yell and bellow!

Because he is the (what?)
Aggressive Bee (oh!)
He flies at me (huh?)
Aggressively (yo!)
I guess he'll be (rrr!)
The death of me (aaow!)
With fear I pee in my Levi's
The Aggressive Bee flies

From his hive and dives at me
No jive - he isn't terrified of me
And it's kind of a surprise to me
Cause he's like one-thousandth the size of me -
Teeny!
Have a pollen-tini, chill yourself
If you sting me you'll kill yourself!
That ain't worth it, kiddo
You don't wanna make your queen a yellow-and-black widow
That's not what I want for you
See, the truth is, Bee, I'm fond of you
And I feel a bit of a bond with you
Man, I even wrote this song for you!
But even if I made the bee appear sweeter
I'm not tryin' to be his cheerleader
His hostility is excessive
The bee's aggressive

The bee's, aggressive! The bee, he's aggressive!
That bee's, aggressive! The bee, he's aggressive!
That bee's, aggressive! The bee, he's aggressive!
He's B-E-E, A-G-G, R-E-S-S-I-V-E!

He's the (WHAT?)
Aggressive Bee (OH!)
He flies at me (HUH?)
Aggressively (YO!)
He says "B-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z,&q­uot;
He's the Aggressive Bee!
Check it out y'all!

There'sapairofwingsonthefellowandari­ngofblackandaringofyellowandhegetsmewoun­dtightlikeastringonacellohemakesyawantto­freakingyellandbellow!

Oh!
Put on the red light!
Bee, you don't have to put on the red light!
Oh, he's the Aggressive Bee.
