Takin’ VC Money: Rap Anthem For Startups and Entrepreneurs

Cardinal App Startup Rap

Anyone living the startup lifestyle knows that the weekend is a great time to keep chugging away on your latest endeavor. Thanks to the makers of the Cardinal app, you now might have a rap anthem to jam to. The Cardinal App helps aggregate all your music shares from various applications like Soundhound, Shazam, HypeMachine, Pandora, Soundcloud, soundtracking, Slacker Radio, and Spotify. It does this by wrapping them all (no pun intended) around a trackable link and sending your friends to a landing page for aggregating all those music shares.

The song was performed live at the GROW conference in Vancouver this week. Enjoy the sweet anthem the Cardinal team created, and remember, although it may not have been mentioned in the song, you can always send your startup news to Tech Cocktail via this tips link, and if we like it, we’ll cover it soon. Listen to the tune (below).

The lyrics for the song are as follows:

Takin’ VC Money (Cash Money IPO’s) Rap Lyrics

To all the startups out there
Staying caffeinated
Pulling all nighters
And trying to launch something amazing
This song, is dedicated to you!

Maybe we can meet up with Ashton Kutcher
See if we agree on some plans for the future
Have a drink with Fred Wilson
Get our lawyer to sign a deal
Or do you think Seqouia’s gonna find another 40 mil


It’d be great to secure some investment ends
Straight from seeds to 10x dividends
Never complacent, you say exit? we say yes
Now we’re in the basement
Working with Node.js

While half these other rappers
Chase broads
And sip on Hennesey
We’re tailing our logs
And drinking 5 Hour Energy!


Three a.m. whiteboards and lightbulb moments
This is our time
Right now so we should own it
I long for delivering
And its prod we get it in
And we have no problem with the thought of pivoting

We know what our vision is
And we don’t want to waste it
We remain driven so we
Continue to chase it

Heyo we’re taking VC Money
All we’re tryin’ to do is get some new seed funding yeah
Money Cash and IPO’s
Thats how this action goes


Heyo we’re taking VC Money
All we’re tryin’ to do is get some new seed funding yeah
Money Cash and IPO’s
Thats how this action goes

Might as well send a little note over to TechCrunch
Maybe get an article
That’s posted by the next lunch


Time to get the word out
We’re ready for beta
Maybe limited at first so our servers
Don’t crater


Yeah we’ve got swag
But its the bad stuff from conferences
You better skip the bag
I’ll just carry my accomplishments

Hooked up with Dealmaker
And now we’re live at GROW Conf
Prepping for a great night
And hanging at the GROW launch

And tonight you know we’ll brush shoulders
With some angels
Not Charlie’s kind
But the ones with the bankrolls
That believe in our team

And also see our market fit
Excited by our dream
And they need to be a part of it
If you haven’t heard of us yet
We can flip you our deck
We’ll trade a check for convertible debt

I said…if you haven’t heard of us yet
We’ll trade a check for convertible debt

Heyo we’re taking VC Money
All we’re tryin’ to do is get some new seed funding yeah
Money Cash and IPO’s
Thats how this action goes

Heyo we’re taking VC Money
All we’re tryin’ to do is get some new seed funding yeah
Money Cash and IPO’s
That’s how this action goes
