Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, or, you know, do.

LA told me, 'You'll be a pop star,
All you have to change is everything you are.'
Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears
She's so pretty, that just ain't me.

GZA vs. All Labels Everywhere, "Labels"

Basically, everything in this entire song is a shot at a label (over 40 of them!), but here are a few choice lyrics:

You gotta read the label
If you don't read the label, you might get poisoned

They know their mics are formed at VIRGIN
And if you ain't boned a mic you couldn't hurt a bee
That's like going to Venus driving a MERCURY
The CAPITOL of this rugged slang is WU-TANG

Throw that A&R n---a off the boat in the ATLANTIC
Now who's the BAD BOY character, not from ARISTA

Read Get On Down's full breakdown of all the labels GZA calls out.
