Marcus J: Props to 3rd Bass. Who doesn’t love The Cactus Album and the song "The Cactus?" This is our sequel song… that fun hip-hop we always try to do.

C-Doc: This song came from something my partner DLX said to me around 25 years ago. He told me that we should eventually do a track that played on the 3rd Bass song "The Cactus" but our version would be about HIV and it would be called "Who Killed The Cactus?" I thought it was a great idea and it stuck with me ever since. Sean, I wish you could've been on this one, but at least we finally got around to it.


Marcus J: My story starts out about a year ago
Watchin internet porn as the cactus grows
You see I don’t really get out that much no more
Think I’ll check craigslists lookin for a whore
I know I really shouldn’t but I’m just lookin
Plus I need it free I ain’t paying for the hookin
E-mail a female no not a she-male
But honestly man it was hard to tell
She hit me right back said she D-T-F
Mind said no, but the cactus said “yes”
I said ok she ain’t that fat
Slide to her crib without the Jimmy hat
She was like a 5, but I was kind high
So I ate that ass like the movie Alive
Not to survive, I did it for the nut
Pulled back cactus threw up on her butt
And I said oh guess I got to go
Just one more thing that I need to know
What’s your name again? Please forgive…
And the bitch said her name was Hiv Positive
And I said Hiv? What kind of name is Hiv? Could you spell that for me? And she said sure it’s H I V … Positive…. Hiv Positive.
At first I thought she said Biv Positive… like Bell Biv Devoe… well that girl was poison… and she killed my cactus…

C-Doc: Stepping to the AM...
Saturday night and I'm avoiding all the mayhem
Lookin for some interest I see
A Girl at the bar lookin back at me...
Now I'm Tryin to stay fly... Cause I'm a
Dope emcee who's disguised as a white guy
But before I step to her... Check my
Breath... And hope it doesn't smell like manure
Pop a Doublemint... hoping that'll fix it- a
Fight in the corner bringin beef like brisket- I
Look at her and tell her Yo we should slide
You gotta ride? cause mine is outside...
To the motel? no back to my place- we
Walk in the door and she wanna watch Scarface...
Funk dat cause I gotta better plan...
Took her by the hand and led her to the bedroom
iPod cuein up the next tune... I'mma
Play Art of Noise- she can give me Max Headroom...
Night stand for the jimmy hat... But she's
Leanin back... And I tot I taw a Puddy Tat...
Raw doggin till the break a dawn- fell
Asleep... And when I woke up she was gone
Must've left quick I'm surprised I didn't hear her
In the bathroom lipstick on the mirror...
She left a message and I read what was written- and
If I would've had pants on I would've shit em
Tried to play fast but my ass got played- it
Said... Welcome to the world of AIDS! Now I'm dead...
