TESTAMENT’s ALEX SKOLNICK Releases Rap Song ‘B.I.G. L.I.E. As Alter Ego SKOLY-D

Directed by Frankie Fulleda, "B.I.G. L.I.E." was shot "guérilla style" in July 2021 at the Fox News HQ, Times Square and Washington Square Park.

HU$H MONEY, the rap duo featuring “Skoly-D”, the alter ego of TESTAMENT guitarist Alex Skolnick, and Kimmy G (Kimmy Gordon), have released their first video, “B.I.G. L.I.E.” which you can check out below.

“B.I.G. L.I.E.” deals with plenty of non-laughing matters, yet we can all use a little comic relief,” says Skolnick, who is also the song’s composer and producer. “What better way to point out the absurdity of it all than some classic rap grooves with humor inspired by the founding father of funny sociopolitical music, Mr. Zappa?

“We don’t expect to change any minds here, but hope that whether someone agrees with the song or not, they will — at the very least — be entertained. And for those who aren’t: We eagerly await your online rants and zingers. Make ’em good!”

“You can see the fun we had doing this. It’s right there!” adds Kimmy G.

Directed by Frankie Fulleda, “B.I.G. L.I.E.” was shot “guérilla style” in July 2021 at the Fox News HQ, Times Square and Washington Square Park and is said to be as much a tribute to New York, its resilience and ever-present wackiness as it is a takedown of nationwide right-wing echo chambers. In a t-shirt emblazoned with the oversized logo of the influential RUN-DMC, Skoly skewers Fox News, election denialism and insurrection revisionism. The video also features comic J-Hype (Jonathan Hyppolite) and Karl Lake, best known as “Robot Guy” from “Chappelle’s Show”. Hot tip: Alex, Kimmy and the video director once performed on the “Maury” show under the name VICIOUS DNA.

“B.I.G. L.I.E.” lyrics:

Flipping through the channels
Fox News Prime Time
Grime Time, Crime Time
Let’s call it SLIME TIME

Competition lurks: OAN, Newsmax

So Fox has to up the twisting of the facts

I’ll need a detox from these toxic talks
It’s like chains and locks on my cable box
All from watching Fox

This is a man who will drain your sanity
He goes by the name of Sean Hannity
Followed up by Tucker
He’s a disturbed mother…

Then the truth gets further tangled
As we suffer through the Ingram Angle
And getting way out of line
We’ve got Judge Jeanine and her box of wine

The 2020 election was under historic protection
Subject to inspection
But someone didn’t accept his rejection
Had to go and start an insurrection

Such a scam, how could anybody buy it?
Go to DC for a Capitol riot
Doomed and hapless preordained mission
Arrests for sedition

Which is uncontestable. Or is it?
Now they’re calling it a “tourist visit”
Voting against an investigation
Now that’s misinformation

B.I.G.
You got a whole lotta nerve trying to misinform me
L.I.E.
They’re trying to tell the whole world what our eyes didn’t see
B.I.G. L.I.E.
Try to deny there’s blue in the sky
You can hide from the truth, that ain’t nothin’ but a big lie
A big lie

CHANT

Nothing but a big big
Nothing but a big big
Nothing but a big big lie
Nothing but a big big
Nothing but a big big lie

(“Kimmy G!”)

VERSE 3

Kimmy G:

Not conservatives, Cons serving
Anti-truths to seduce your earnings
Profits is what they’re turning
Flag huggin’ for the dollar bills they’re churning

It’s a burden, Q-Sheep herding
False wording, it’s working
Baseless facts that’s meant for stirrin’
Half-assed racist fascist vermin

Law curvin’, fraud swirlin’
It’s hurting, concerting
Just face it they’re just spurring
Folks who like their crosses burning

B.I.G.
You got a whole lotta nerve tryin’ to misinform me
L.I.E.
They’re tryin’ to tell the whole world what our eyes didn’t see
B.I.G. L.I.E.
Try to deny there’s blue in the sky
You can hide from the truth, that ain’t nothin’ but a big lie
A big lie

SOLO

Mischievous hackers overseas
Corrupting minds just like a disease
Sewing doubt of all that is true
Somebody claiming “I am Q!”

Rumors spreading faster than a Lexus
Arizona, Georgia, Florida and Texas
Recounts based on nothing but fiction
Used as excuses for voter restriction

(GOP)
They once were the party of Nancy and Ronny
Now they got the dripping-haired Giuliani
Their voters have lost all touch with what’s real
Sending all their money to “Stop the Steal!”

Biden won man, their ain’t no mystery
Chalk it up to revisionist history
Pure conspiracy, don’t be a loon
The earth is round and we went to the moon

B.I.G.
You got a whole lotta nerve tryin’ to misinform me
L.I.E.
They’re tryin’ to tell the whole world what our eyes didn’t see
B.I.G. L.I.E.
Try to deny there’s blue in the sky
You can hide from the truth, that ain’t nothin’ but a…
B.I.G.
You got a whole lotta nerve tryin’ to misinform me
L.I.E.
They’re tryin’ to tell the whole world what our eyes didn’t see
B.I.G. L.I.E.
Try to deny that there’s blue in the sky
When you hide from the truth, that ain’t nothin’ but a big lie
A big lie

It’s a big big big big a big a big lie
Ponzy scheme that’ll make you cry
Nothing but a big big,
Nothing but a big big lie (BIG LIE!)

It’s a big a big big big a big lie
Pipe dream, pie in the sky
Nothing but a big big,
Nothing but a big big lie (BIG LIE!)

REPEAT

Once again, I’m watching Fox News as they switch to Prime Time
Grime Time, Crime Time, Let’s call it SLIME TIME

SLIME TIME
I’m glutinous & green
SLIME TIME
I’m oozin’ through your screen
SLIME TIME
I’m on your phone & TV
SLIME TIME
B.I.G. L.I.E.
