Jimu introduces his top man, Biz Markie. What happens next is something you never thought possible. Jimu and Biz Markie rap for you. They are not bad. In fact they are pretty good. The mercenaries are hired.
You asks for the lyrics to the rap, they tell you:
"We're bad men, you see, we have a tendency to lie, We lie about our past, we lie about our future, and we lie about our intentions. Now, we're gonna lie about being mercs. The only truth is we're bad men."
You grin.
"That's some quality lyrics," you say.
"We aim to please," Jimu says. "

Drinkin' outta a coconut
And there's a hula girl doin' hula
