“HARD OUT HERE FOR A GIMP” – Wheelchair Sports Camp [official video]


[slow, lyrical melody]
[getting pretty good at this…
rapping and sitting down thing]
[beat picks up,
keyboards in the lead]
[music cuts in and out]
[keyboards and drums]
no matter where i go
“all eyes on me”
everyone stop what you’re
doing the human’s moving
ooh and i breathe
1 in many thousands
ya that’s who i be
now i need, the
whole room to freeze
they’re god blessing me
but i didn’t even sneeze
on they knees
questioning excessively
wanna know my life expectancy
like it doesn’t get to me
get a hysterectomy
or life worth living
don’t watch tv
sounds like a gimmick
little people
living in a big world
successful, married couple
that have kids?… girl
let me guess…
they eat dinner too
my breath ain’t
nothing but an interview
it’s not what i did
or what i didn’t do
I learned to exploit all of
this shit when i was introduced
to the game born
into lame medical debt
the brain and body
weren’t identical yet
we made a hell of a bet
A hypothetical mess
now i gives no fucks and it’s
incredible yes
I’m still Tangled
up in the mic cable
and not able to eat at high
tables or live life stable
i fit all your right labels
but didn’t get cat called
and ain’t complaining at all
they’re like kalyn
you talk too much
shut up you walk too much
or “is the sex still the same?”
i’m like “nah boo hush”
gave me some confidence
now i got too much
huh…
the Inspirational porn star
ahh “my cute wheelchair?”
it costs as much
your sports car
look we got enough problems
no need for you to call a
cop who can’t solve one
tis the season get a job
taking pics wit santa in
the middle of the mall
unless you’re good at bagging
groceries, or pushing carts
through the snow freeze good
thing for goodwill? “oh please”
every time i go to a
show, i can’t see shit
but i park front row
But I don’t ask for no pity
so why you rappin so shitty?
there’s a stairway to heaven
[oh shit ok]
so tell me how the hell we
gonna get in? [hold on]
[well i don’t know uhhh]
lord knows where, i’m heading
it’s hard out here for a gimp
there’s a stairway to
heaven [fuckin fuck]
so tell me how the hell
we gonna get in? [haha]
[how we gonna get in?]
[hmmmm?]
lord knows where, i’m heading
it’s hard out here for a gimp
there’s a stairway
to heaven [fuck]
so tell me how the
hell we gonna get in?
[no you’re not]
[Kalyn, shut up]
lord knows where, i’m heading
it’s hard out here for a gimp
there’s a stairway to heaven
[knock knock]
so tell me how the
hell we gonna get in?
[how we gonna get in?]
lord knows where, i’m heading
it’s hard out here for a gimp
it’s hard out here for a gimp
it’s hard out here for a gimp
[so tell me how the hell
we gonna get in]
Lord knows where i’m headin
it’s hard out here for a gimp
[i’m not angry
i’m gonna be angry]
[i’m fucking pissed]
how the hell we gonna get in
Lord knows where i’m headin
it’s hard out here for a gimp

  1. I am SO psyched on the OVERALL quality of this work. The production is skin penetrating, leaving you with twinkling hair. Kalyns writing is still some of the most true and play full bars I have heard. I appreciate this band more and more every year.

  2. Absolutely fantastic. Much respect – and thank you Sage for helping her with a platform. Respect to the both of you.

  3. This is AMAZING!!!!! So excited to se this! But but but….please caption it! This needs to be shared far and wide and I just can't until it's captioned. Thank you for this breath of fresh air!

  4. Had to listen to the hits again today after seeing Kalyn at the sit-in at Cory Gardner's office. Whether through your music or your actions, you are the change maker that I could only dream to be. HELL YES!

  5. They've been rocking since at least 2011, and I'm just finding out about her now thanks to her interview on Democracy Now! A smooth jazz groove, techno down beats, weaved through with 3:1 cross beat rap lyrics using playful rhyme schemes with a strong, positive, and subversive message. To top it off, she lives the part and is a political activist as well, and now she has Ikey Owen on her side. I can't wait for more video's! And am getting her music.

  6. Holy unbelievable shit this goes hard about everything I experience everyday. Fellow wheelchair using dwarf. Holy fuck. Every line. Pure fire.

  7. I'd be happy to contribute cc/subtitles to this video (it's a really great video & song) but yall have contributions turned off? Let me know if/when you turn them on and I'll provide closed captioning, I'm pretty good at it. ✌ Keep rockin'

  8. shes so goddamn clever and funny and ….educational.
    and the band/production work is always on point. love this shit, CO proud
