lyrics for Hip Hop Stranger by Mission Man
 
Chorus: I’m a hip-hop stranger in a hip-hop land
I’m a hip-hop stranger with no hip-hop band
I’m a hip-hop stranger in a hip-hop land
I’m a hip-hop stranger I’m a hip-hop band
 
Walking down the street no one knows who I am
It’s cold and snowy in this wintery land
I’m walking alone because I have no band
You’ll see no entourage behind me
You’ll need to see through the mirage to find me
Open up your eyes so you’re not looking blindly
I walk right in to the club through the front door
They don’t know who I am but when I leave they want more
I set up my mic and setup my keyboard
I tell the story of my life through a series of chords
First you’ll be introduced to my mind
In the hopes that you’ll like what you find
Then you’ll delve a little deeper as I come out of the shadows
Preparing for the future by playing mad shows
Eventually you’ll see that I’m a different kid
Still listening to everything I did
I might even kick a little bit of a freestyle
I feel us making a connection as we smile
 
Chorus:
 
I’m not wearing a single piece of jewelry
I don’t want to fool you so please don’t fool me
I don’t have any dancers on stage
There are no bikini clad women fighting in a cage
I don’t have a midget on stage but maybe I should
Maybe distracting the fans would do me some good
You won’t see a fireworks display
That could lead to some dismay
You’ll be forced to pay attention to what I say
Unless you choose to walk away
I don’t have an agent to book my shows
Or an overpaid producer to lace my flows
Over tracks made in a million dollar studio
I don’t have a publicist
Things that could poison my music I just resist
I don’t go for the shock just to make headlines
I work best without the set deadlines
 
Chorus:
 
I’m up on stage just being myself
You won’t confuse me with anyone else
I’m spinning beats that I made in my house
And lyrics that I wrote are coming out of my mouth
My performance will be about the purity of music
Expressing myself is how I choose to use it
After my last song I break down my gear
I thank you all for all the cheers
And for spending time with me here
I walk out the door
And hope you want more
