Frederick the Flamingo

An Ode to Frederick the Flamingo


They say Frederick got his first big break

When he was rapping on the street with Floyd his mate


Floyd provided the beats and Fred the rhymes

The music they made was ahead of the times


Jay-Z chanced upon them on his way to the store

And he signed them on the spot without a minute thought


Soon they were touring the world with Snoop Doggy Lion

Playing stadium shows and private jet flying


They were the first hip hop flamingos that the world has seen

And inspired a generation of flamingos to follow their dreams


The End
