Walk Slower Daddy.mp3

Lyrics to Abstract Rude's new lp

 1. Keep The Feel Intro....produced by Mr. Dibiase

 Keep The Feel Intro

{Verse 1}
Who's back Rude's back with a new track
What u lack we stack that's how we do that
To the max relax cuz he's a cool cat
Who adapts like weeds that grow out of the cracks
Beats with the slap to make your body go
Sway step pop & lock it's so hypnotical
It's not quantized Dibiase know
Bonsai in the center of the pot pyro-technics
Serve them burn them massive
Until they learn to churn out another classic
Unless you're doper with your vocals ain't believing ya
U fiend for holding mics or the king of social media
Your 16's tight now can u write a hook
Give em a typewriter go on and write a book MF
U might not like us but your girl gon' love us
'Cause I'm a Fatbol pipe stuffer & puffer one love

(ab talks)

{Verse 2}
I welcome u to the all feel album
The non algorithm formulaic zone album
The thought it and I'd say it off the dome styling
Past work may have outdone
That's debatable cuz Thynk Taynk's no doubt 1
Most would say so but damn if I ain't came close
Left hand to raise toast I'm out - spaceghost
In to the wind I blow...I pause for the cause & the interval
Galvanizing 12 deep into 2 triple 0
And still worried about food housing & clothes
So now u know....so now u know

Walk Slower Daddy

{Verse 1}
Time waits just to rub it in your face
What woulda shoulda had a lasting fate couldn't carry weight
Each day a step closer to Heaven's Gate
Or Hell's kitchen depending on how you view faith
Who's to say to question every move you make
The lesson learned truly we only get few mistakes
Past the age of a quarter of a century
'Cause past 25 you'll be 30 in the blink of an eye
If I've learned anything it's been fatherly wisdom
Family business handed down to all of my children
Never wanted you to struggle why I'm hustling now
I was lucky to not know the pain of a motherless child
You're making me proud I'm wondering what you're gonna be
I wanna be like you when I grow up untainted & free
So explain it to me baby show your Pops what to do
She said, "Walk slower Daddy cuz I'm following you"
Grab my hand boo

{Chorus 1}
You're growing now it won't be long
Youngins growing up too fast
Your glowing smile makes home sweet home
You'll need that money won't love me back
Money comes then money's gone
Stay Gold - I'll show you all i know
She said, "Walk slower Daddy cuz I'm following you"

{Verse 2}
Little Jimmy is older now call him Big James
Soon he'll be moving out the house going in the Navy
Little Geno is not no baby he walks around
Loving Tech Nine freestyling crazy
And it all runs in the family - musically inclined
Little Aaron he's doing fine he studies at Pepperdine
No child left behind
Bree & Malik got they Nickelodeon shine
And if Aaliyah turns out as good I won't mind we had good ole times
Teaching 'em how a Blowedian rhymes
And it's a Mass Men legacy, what we have is still integrity
Measuring success by longevity's terms
Where destiny was something you had to earn
And the head shepherd he protected his herd & kept his word
It's best to learn from experience, still listen to your elders
Who's theory is proven tested unselfish

{Chorus 2}
So when you're out there on your own
Youngins growing up too fast
We'll hope you hear our prayers from home
You'll need that money won't love you back
'Cause money comes then money's gone
Stay Gold - I'll teach you all i know
"Walk slower Daddy cuz I'm following you"

{Outro Freestyle Verse 3}
Through your strength of character
And the substance of your conversation
May you be a substantial
Member in the community
An upstanding thoughtful neighbor
Honor thy mother & thy father baby
I want all these things for you
May you inherit the earth
'Cause u shall be meek, but know when to strike
And protect yourself
At all times - times - times
May you always be mine be yours
And the world is your oyster girl

{Outro Bridge}
Won't be long
You'll be out there on your own
I just wanna keep you for mine alone for now
Teach you all I know
All I know
I hear babies cry & watch them grow
I know how Louie felt - yeah

{Exit}
May you always feel a warm blanket
And never know the pain I felt
I'll be there for u
But it don't matter the past is the past
We moving in to the future
Into the here & now
Yeah Yeah! Ugh!

 Authentic

(ab talks...sings)

{Verse 1}
It's quite authentic it was God sent
We'll get the lion share percentage if our heart's in it
Just when it started to wither away like trees in August
We all saw it bloom like flowers in March did
My 1st love was Aries born in April
We had started to bud like Mary green eyes indo
I asked her may I have this dance under the moonlight
Soon in June I'll love u in the sunshyne
Baby the fireworks we'll set off light up the sky
More than July (than the 4th of July)

{Chorus}
I
I don't wanna lose you I don't wanna lose you
Hate it when I lose you baby
Me too me too me too me too
I know I
Hate it when I lose you hate it when I lose you
Never wanna lose you baby
Me too me too me too me too me too
I feel like u do

{Verse 2}
It hurt me bad when we departed
I thought I was over your summer by August
We'll spring in March and 420 is our time in April
We'll both be in love & caring very faithful
I'll ask you may I have this time with you forever
You're the sunshyne of my life my June is never-ending
Our love is quite authentic and we don't know why
We got more fireworks than July (than the 4th of July)

{Chorus}
I
I don't wanna lose you I don't wanna lose you
Hate it when I lose you baby
Me too me too me too me too
I know I
Hate it when I lose you hate it when I lose you
Never wanna lose you baby
Me too me too me too me too me too
I feel like u do...I never wanna lose

{Verse 3}
Back for more forth & back back & forth
We're having a war that I don't wanna have no more
Like a bad divorce with lawyers & we back in court
So why you hate me baby huh is it your Daddy's fault
Counseling to give relationship a catapult
At least can't let us end it on this bad note
Hate losing you 'cause then I'm sad alone with bad habits to cope
Savage when he feel like he don't have no hope
And he feel he was that close but it really was more to gain
We all have to go basically through the same thing

{Zulu Butterfly Poem}
Accountability is first in one's cycle of change
Know thyself. Be self. Love self. A wealth of this sweet exchange
Now look into the mirror - are we the same?
How impeccable of you not to make an assumption
About me personally doing my best
Earth, wind, fire, who can contest
Love hate desire temptations of the flesh
These agreements are clear
I brand them in my chest

{The Oracle Jayne Doe Poem}
Seasons change, but the heart remains
Love is. Love will always be.
Funny how life takes turns
Fly. Fly! I'll meet u in the sky
We'll be together if it's meant to be

4. Five Senses....produced by Fat Jack

 Five Senses

{Intro}
U stimulate my senses baby
(these are the 5..th-these are the 5)
U stimulate my senses baby
(these are the 5 senses)
U stimulate my senses baby
(these are the 5..th-these are the 5)
U stimulate my senses baby

{Verse 1}
Whisper in my ears tell me no lies
And u can tell when u look in my eyes
I get a rise u touch - one whiff & I smell like Egyptian Musk
Your lips got a kiss of the chocolate I'm hearing u moan
I'm seeing your eyes roll I'm rattling your bones
I'm smelling your perfume
I'm eating your home cooking you're known for good looking-ness
Leave u alone u keep me on bone so I couldn't it's u
Huffin & puffin in my ear as I be putting u to sleep
And even handcuffing smelling like u tasting like a peach
A real man woman I'ma push it in u kinda deep
Every nite inside each others arms feels like a week

{Chorus}
U stimulate my senses baby
U stimulate my senses baby, ooh
U stimulate my senses baby
U stimulate my senses baby
(these are the 5)

{Verse 2}
Talks to me in a way that really brightens up my day
And walks by me in the rain
As if to say she lightens up my pain this ain't no fairytale game
No knight in shining armor came just me with rusty armored shame
She said no shame many men before u failed the same
There stories didn't end & they prevailed & overcame
A fitting end to my struggle, strive strain
Muscle aches migraines but u were there for me
Through the sad days times where I had a bad taste left in my mouth
With you I'd forget about it, and you'd say, "I'm sorry"

{Chorus}
That's why U stimulate my senses baby
That's why U stimulate my senses baby
U stimulate my senses baby
U stimulate my senses baby
(these are the 5)

{Verse 3}
I hear it I see it I touch it I smell it I hear it I taste it
I listen I look at it feel it don't sniff it I blaze it
Heard it I saw it I felt I smelt it I ate it
The music the painting the texture the scent the flavoring
Sounded appeared it pricked funked me nasty
Loud it leered & licked the fragrant candy
Noises views a kiss perfume was tasty
The void that it feels & boy does it feel amazing
My voice in your ears the look in your eyes
When you're in my arms u smell like fruit & taste like wine
Make love in your ears then look in your eyes
Feel my embrace the smell & the taste no wasting time

{Bridge}
We spent nights under moons
Living life on the edge never knowing if it's ending soon
And I might be confused
But my five senses said I hit my head & fell in love with u

{Chorus Repeats}

 The Solution ft. Slug & Brother Ali

(ab sings, dj zole cuts)

{Abbey verse 1}
I've been the problem yeah
Now I'm part of the solution yeah
My own personal retribution yeah
The new me is new around here
I got new found vision clear moving so fast u missed a year
I might just disappear it'll feel like I skipped a year
I ain't got shit to fear I can risk losing it what are the benefits?
Or should I hold it tighter in my clutches instead of just letting it go
I done been wrong before matter fact it wasn't that long ago
I even hit the bottom low but that was just part of my growth
A heart's always broken I guess I'm starting over
And now my battered soul is going back through the motions
I'm just half of a whole who once had no control
I was breaking my oath it was happening over & over again
That wasn't gold so I had to take hold
Sad how it goes when you don't even know where to begin

{Chorus}
It starts with me I must admit
(I been a problem) but still I can't quit
Used to spend my time complaining to no benefit but nah
(Now I'm) making a contribution so that makes me the solution (2x)

{Bridge}
Follow me now if you're ready to do more than just talk
Walk with me be the solution
Offer critical thought for the youth be the solution
Everyone is at fault after all we're only human
I've been the problem you've been the problem
But now we're The Solution

{Slug verse 2}
I spread my arms like frosting
Like a phoenix wing around this offspring
Soda Pop sing songs of optimism
1972 caught the rhythm of a heartbeat
Lost the change in a car seat
Aiming at the mirror but still blames the party
As if everybody's listening wrong
It's the vision I've drawn of this impossible mission I'm on
I ain't like the rest of the scene
I'm not swimming in a stream of synthetic wet dreams nah
I work hard keep everything clean
'Cause the needle still stings when the pendelum swings yes
I'm tryna do my best I'm not the best though
I'll do it to my death I never let go
A student of the Revolution
We put the salute in the solution

{Chorus}
It starts with me I must admit
(I been a problem) but still I can't quit
Used to spend my time complaining to no benefit but nah
(Now I'm) making a contribution so that makes me the solution (2x)

{Brother Ali verse 3)
I was raised on the doctrine of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad
Do what u gotta do to be profitable ain't nobody stopping u
But ain't nobody tryna plant your seeds & water too
Yes your crew is starving who gotta harvest that God in U
Meaning me, it became easy to see
I'm the one gotta put my life the way how its supposed to be
And it might seem kind of cliche but hey truth be that way
Those that don't know need to hear so those that do know need to say
You can quote them sloagans over & over til you overdose
And coasting through life until u slam into that wall then bam!
Then it click, that truth is an upper lip
Chilling right there under your nose until one day it come to grips
As long as the world been revolving if I'm still groveling
In the same problem wherever I walk its probably not none of yall
But obviously some flaw that I ignore but got to see
Who gotta solve it? Me - Brother Ali

{Chorus}
It starts with me I must admit
(I been a problem) but still I can't quit
Used to spend my time complaining to no benefit but nah
(Now I'm) making a contribution so that makes me the solution (2x)

{Bridge}
Follow me now if you're ready to do more than just talk
Walk with me be the solution
Offer critical thought for the youth be the solution
Everyone is at fault after all we're only human
I've been the problem you've been the problem
But now we're The Solution

 6. I Lived In A Time....produced by DJ Remode

 I Lived In A Time

Staring at the truth can be like staring at the sunlight
Get blinded...

{Verse 1}
Within an eclipse the energy shifts
The wind is so brisk it could push your men over the cliff
Beginning with this the word it was born with a fist
Sword with a lance & flesh torn with a death wish
We ain't get violent to communicate
We ain't gotta see eye to eye to mobilize & motivate
Death before dishonor envy or betrayal
Never gon' be stronger than we were the day that we were all together
Spike the nail in the coffin 'cause they say you're better off
When on the other side where u ain't got no problems
I ain't saying heaven's gate is calling it don't take death to dodge 'em
'Cause you're alive u may as well think of a better option
Let's get u grounded with a spiritual base
So u can look in the mirror & be proud of your face
A real image don't know how to be fake
Make it by any means a behind the scenes view of the out takes

{Chorus}
I lived in a time of raising hell
I lived in a time of LL I def Jammed
I lived in a time of champions of rhyme
Like Myka MFn 9 & X Clan
I lived in a time of Kool Moe
I lived in a time of native tongues & Hiero
And who could forget the Wu though
And who rep the west my crew Project Blowed

{Verse 2}
A thousand nations even our own descend upon us
No man is bothered not a single break or chink in armor
Our wounded & dead got fox & vultures feeding on 'em
Our movement is lead protect the culture keep it going
On guard for every push where they come hard
And shields up from the arrow barrage that builds up
From one bar to the next
For every bar u take out of text I got another thought to digest
I rock this funky joint 'cause Funky Town's the livest
And u missing the point u digress I guess
But I got something going with my little KTF
My crew is right on the brink of being the dark knight rises
A terror in the air a bearer of bad news
Your era is in jeopardy so be scared of Ab Rude
Can't get me out your hair my nightmare has u
But you'll never be aware 'cause to u only cash rules

{Chorus Repeats}

 Kan Of Whoop Ass

{Verse 1}
My-my my dog had a connect it got him locked up
Then his call was a collect we all gotta respect
The laws of the universe cause has an effect
With the odds that we against only God is why we're blessed
I guard all my secrets work hard on my weakness
But forward is how we step forgot all my regrets
Hand it to me next won't pass it then we snatch
Now I gotta kick ass now I gotta react
Product of the big bad LA is where we at
Smart enough to not get caught up in LAPD's trap
Grinding for it hard so one day I can ease back
I ain't greedy but my piece of the pie I'ma need that
If you're sleeping on the job & you're feeling too relaxed
You'll be leaking what u got & your time will just elapse
I put a hundred thousand hours in mastering these raps
MCs will come & go but you'll never defeat Stract!

{Chorus}
Whole kan of whoop ass & ain't tired yet
Your manager's such a bitch ass he ain't fired yet?
Industry I kick ass & aim for the neck
Claim my respect don't say u ain't feel it yet

{Verse 2}
And now my dog he just got out, he don't know the hood
Mom & pop store been knocked down by Wal-Mart been bought out
Forced them to move with the laws in the courthouse
Or offers that they couldn't refuse know what I'm talking 'bout
Homeless are forgotten like nobody is watching
Few will rise to the top but all is hitting the bottom
U ain't gotta take note but we're all in the same boat
U ain't gotta front like you're an angel with a halo
Villain then u play the victim in the same show
Kinda tricky how u flip in between when u play roles
Deception webs a weave that will only entangle
My true blood's thicker than water 'cause they know
No Suckas like my nigga Arthur in Diego
Fat Jack Kenny & Vitamin Dave-O DJ Otek & Doc EZ on Technics
MCs will come & go but you'll never forget me

{Bridge}
Known Heavyweight
(I'm a known Heavyweight) open Sesame
So learn it's a kan of worms when u open up a

{Chorus}
Whole kan of whoop ass & ain't tired yet
Your manager's such a bitch ass he ain't fired yet?
Industry I kick ass & aim for the neck
Claim my respect don't say u ain't feel it yet

(dj drez cuts, ab talks)

{Verse 3}
Now I'ma stay Blowed as I wanna be whole crew & company
Told u we hungry so yo crew is lunch meat
Blowed as I wanna be global economy
Hit the road rippin shows different countries
Those who accompany we mob in a symphony
Your whole show is bogus like Kim & Chris Humphries
I don't deal with fuckery hoax for publicity
It's no fake shit high post needs a humbling
Spit so cold u get froze by the sun's heat
While I'm getting Blowed as I wanna be
Don't flip & front on me don't wanna see what's underneath
Get me angry this whole thing gets ugly
Incredible Hulk type shit with the bulging veins in the biceps
Got the game on tight with the vice grip
So who u riding with huh? I think it's my clique
License to get Blowed as I wanna be youngest to the OGs
Break the law until the police come for me
Petty crime nah that don't make enough for me
Waste time homie I don't got the luxury

{Chorus}
Whole kan of whoop ass & ain't tired yet
Your manager's such a bitch ass he ain't fired yet?
Industry I kick ass & aim for the neck
Claim my respect don't say u ain't feel it yet

{Verse 4}
I'm like a shotty that goes bang
Blow out your whole frame when its loaded
U wanna battle it's no thang
Go get your whole gang bring your whole clique
And we can get savage in this bitch we go at it
Cuz we above average in this bitch ain't gon' have it
Like I crashed into your whip body cast u in this bitch
Another head in my duffel bag zipped
Like Joe Pesci in his classic
Role of the enforcer u might see yo casket
Might get toe tagged quick might be yo last trip
Price was too drastic
Your head is in a vice getcha ass kicked

{Chorus Repeats}

 Halfway Around The Globe

(ab sings)

(Intro)
Wherever the music takes him he goes goes
Wherever the music takes him he goes goes
Wherever the music takes him he goes goes
Wherever the music takes him he goes goes

{Chorus}
He's going already half way-a around the
He's going he's headed the other half way around

{verse 1}
I've seen America
Amerikkka horseback with the white sheets scaring us
Now I've been called a somewhat world traveler, I'd laugh at that
'Cause I've stepped not one big toe foot in Africa, only half the map
And of course it's too cold for Antarctica
Yeah I'm thinking that's just where penguins go fall in love
Been to Australia but not once ever took a 10 hour flight to Asia
Been all through the EU - UK never seen Brazil or Venezuela
Just 3 continents deep, Cuba & Montego Bay, Jamaica
To the land of the free, knowing that real money ain't printed on the paper
But good chocolate's made in Switzerland
Off shore account your silver in their bank in you're the man
Like your 1st name's James and your last name's Bond
He's a flirt with the dames and his game is strong
Always on the road and he's camped in the airport
Everywhere he go then they're stamping his passport
West of Cali East of New York expand the listening base we need more
Now or never see you'll get yours come see my next tour
That's 3 and got 4 to go

{Chorus}
He's going already half way-a around the
He's going he's headed the other half way around
He's going already half way-a around the
He's going he's headed the other half way around

{Bridge}
Packed shows and we're back on the road here we go
'Cause we halfway around the globe
Follow that code that we had from the Blowed in the old days
Halfway around the globe
Know if u believe they can't take it from u
U are gon' achieve even though they hating on u
Take it slow & breathe you're meditating on it
Know your destiny halfway around the globe

{Verse 2}
I've never been gone and didn't miss where I came from
'Cause it's nowhere better than home to wake up & be greeted by the rising sun
Never walked Mesopotamia
But I've had dinner with the Addam's Family from Transylvania
Haha if you'd believe that I'd laugh at u
But I've seen Sistine Chapel ceiling & statues in the Louvre
Saw what was left of the old wall in Germania
Stayed at the same hotel as the Queen in Vancouver, Canada
Then it got zanier favorite falafel place Mediterranean
recorded in random places like Scranton, Pennsylvania
Electric Lady Land isle of Manhattan by the Park
I drove a car past Park Avenue right on Boardwalk
felt like Monopoly the game begins
In this metropolis we'd play to win 'cause one day it ends
Reminded of my age again but I'ma take it all in
From the Alps to Appalachians with the Mountain men
I found Ponce de Leon's fountain & found youth again

 9. Tha Edge....produced by Mr. Dibiase

 Tha Edge

{Verse 1}
In one dream I'm walking too close to tha edge
In one dream I'm falling I reach for the ledge
In one dream I'm flying in way over my head
In one dream I'm drowning I can't keep holding my breath
U down him
But walk a mile in that man's shoes before u judge him
If u wanna rise when he rises then fall when he falls & show him u love him
When u come around him
'Cause see when you're flying high u got a lot of friends
But when you're drowning
Few of them there to catch u at the deep end
Never found them
It's mountains to molehills 'cause it's nothing
Not the other way around with a nigga fronting
Pushing buttons in this B-I-T-C-
(I ain't your Bitch) U don't wanna piss me off
I'm walking through the thick it not falling for the bullshit
Flying over the ignorant but drowning in the same ole bottomless pit of this shit
As if the honor I get is of significance to anyone but me & a couple of my dignitaries
If that includes u I salute u like the military (yes sir)

{Chorus}
Walking too close to tha edge
Falling I reach for the ledge
Flying in way over my head
Drowning I can't hold my breath (2x)

{Verse 2}
We've all had these dreams of walking close to the fire
And nearly getting burnt by the flames
Or free falling like a paratrooper from a plane
Flying through the sky like a bald eagle
Angel with wings me of all people
Some would frown and I laugh at the notion
Then gasping for breath like I'm drowning in the ocean
Then woke with my breath held - thank God I exhaled
Yes it was hell these were my near death tales
Of the walking dead turned live for love
Of the fall from grace where Pac learned "keep your head up"
That fly low under the radar & rise above
Being suffocated by the claustrophobia
Walking over ya use me as a stepping stone
To leap frog into the arms of another break up another home
Then fly by on some "oh I got this"
But u wrong u ain't sly you're just so obnoxious
And I wish u would call yourself dialing my phone
I'd be so quick to hit the dial tone get drowned out by headphones
By skullcandy headphones now I'm in a zone let the song ride
Drums unquantized with a bong high go!
It's only hydro that I blow & never too high or too low
So if I rise or fall it ain't that far to go
They come in close throw a hard sharp elbow
To crack a nigga's jaw though
Had it with u packing & couldn't get to it quick - draw solo
Red dot will turn into a messy blotch awful
Left his vitals looking like a bowl of pasta thought so
That's if u want it like a mobster - macho
'Cause I could shot call the whole block up pronto
Never thought of me to be the one that struck a life though
Read about it in the Bible "thou shall not kill" but I know
If u threaten a grown man defends his household
Protects his family from the cradle to the outro
Let's get one thing straight
My family loves me I'm sure yours loves u
Don't force me to do something that I don't wanna do
I'm making it home in one piece
Don't force me to raise up out of my seat
Go completely against my beliefs & pull this piece on u
'Cause I only want peace with u
Ain't a shame what the streets could do
Yeah I thought I was sleeping too

{Chorus}
Walking too close to tha edge
Falling I reach for the ledge
Flying in way over my head
Drowning I can't hold my breath (2x)

 3D Nights

(Intro)
Having 3D nights
3D Nights
Having 3D nights

{Verse 1}
It's like one of them 3D nights I'm deja vu-ing I seen it twice
Its jaws coming at me like Avatar so be advised
Sharks in the water with demon eyes they really bite
Am I dreaming or sinking in real life
Minutes pass I cherish the seconds a minute has
Can it last or is it coming at me too fast
Am I controlling or really in its grasp
And if I'm starting to love it will it be cast away
Afraid to be close or even near you
Objects in my rear view closer than they appear to be
I hope for sincerity hopefully this time has helped me find clarity
No longer wish for nights where raindrops fall
'Cause those evolve into hail storms with snowballs
Downhill and weighed down like an anvil
Time's always flying by and it don't stand still

{Chorus}
3D nights are rendezvous
Where you feel like deja vu 'cause you've seen it twice
So vivid life comes right at you
You live an illusion though til you've seen the light

{Bridge}
3 dimensional
Live in Stereo
Stereoscopic photography
Computer imagery
The talk of the industry
But they don't know the real me
Make you wonder if you know
Do you feel me?
3D nights
3D nights
Having 3D nights

{Verse 2}
It's like wearing my 3D glasses what's in front of me I be seeing past it
All my people lost I'ma see 'em after re-enacted
You're watching life like it's a matinee
Won't know what's real from what's fake until you at a age
You just talking 'bout practice you in the batting cage
Won't have success til you're old like Satchel Paige
But it don't matter 'bout the accolades
At least I rocked Brisbane I even smashed Adelaide
Raised hell in Melbourne when I tell them what I have to say
Club show on Friday a festival on Saturday
They with me in Sydney love me in WA
And all New Zealand know I'm at it again oh yeah I'm back on a plane
And one show is never the same
We got a big band plasma screen with no platinum chains
'Cause that's just not my thang
I see you reaching for what's out your range

{Chorus}
3D nights are rendezvous
Where you feel like deja vu 'cause you've seen it twice
So vivid life comes right at you
You live an illusion though til you've seen the light
Do you feel me?

 Garcon a la Pipe

(ab sings)

{Verse 1}
I'm on my merry way I'm out here every day
Keep to myself but if I bother you perdoname
Garcon a la Pipe hard on my own to make it
He still chase his pain away with his pipe in his hand in modern day
I'm so artistic my lyrics paint like Picasso man
So ambidextrous I rock with my right & left hand
So ambiguous people don't know my next plan
Time's so auspicious that I'ma get what I need want never get less than
So awesome i think I lost 'em ahead of them
So high I'm in between Humboldt County & the Netherlands
Definitely not catching me on witness stand
Life's too precious to be stuck in a can I just count my blessings
I've been patient making observations
I done sat here so long Picasso made this painting
For all the places I've been never lost my faith in heaven
My pipe was once filled up now I just scrape the resin

{Chorus}
The boy with the pipe is so observative
He's witnessed the nice and the merciless
Once he comes of age he won't escape heart break
He'll break hearts til one lady steals his heart away
And so with redemption I say this wholeheartedly
I was once like him
Garcon a la Pipe

{Verse 2}
Nomad no particular place no sad no happy face
Will stay getting his mash on til we have our own do it our own way
Won't eat Mignon fillet Garcon a la Pipe
LA that's where my homies stay & the city where I was born & raised
For the chron we blazed this one's for the glass blowers
And the tree growers that when we on tour got a sack for us
Jar for us and they holler back every rap chorus
Hardcore and they follow that for the art form
Walked so long wore out my boots I sat here on my stoop
Watching everybody go by thinking 'bout what's this whole world's coming to
And what was I gonna do people don't pity for u plus I was hungry too
Made a cardboard sign said I would work for food
Searched for clues turned over every stone
Haven't u heard of blues well I'm singing my own, foot hurts in these shoes
Sobered up & still turned down for interviews
Win or lose it amounts to paying dues probably shoulda stayed in school

{Chorus}
The boy with the pipe is so observative
He's witnessed the nice and the merciless
Once he comes of age he won't escape heart break
He'll break hearts til one lady steals his heart away

 12. Relay ft. Maya Jupiter, Just Brea, Pigeon John, Medusa, Busdriver, Olmeca....produced by Chief

 Relay

(Intro)
Uh it's the relay
But like the homies say
Can't keep running away
(ab sings)
Run for Jesse, run for Flo-Jo, run for Jackie

{Ab verse 1}
A mid summer's mic fiend but is the empire a pipe dream?
I'm Billy Shakespearing 'em it has a nice ring to it
Me on the green leaf and Chief on the theme music
Greeted u when I said Hello with Brea from Deep Rooted
It's a race yall 11 bars til face off
I'ma do it for MCA and Nate Dogg
They try to leap frog on every floating log
Hey even I don't know it all don't follow protocol
I wrote a song about it wanna hear it here it go
Act 1 in a concerto in synch with one another
And with wholeheartedly efforts
Towards artistry's message being pushed a bit forward
A poet makes it his job to relay
I'm leading off & I'm clocking a steady pace I won't drop the baton today
And u can put that on C-A
Ate a can of spinach made it to the finish
Not how hard u fought along the way

{Maya verse 2}

Follow the yellow zip code
nine triple zero six, The wizardess of oz in her new home
Click of the heels but there ain't no turning back
In this race, I run for those off the beaten track
The ones who flee - get labeled refugee
Spend months out at sea, to be called guilty
Yes I'm running
For those sprinting across the borders
With kids by their side to escape new world disorder
Only to reach what they thought would be peace 
Now they’re paraded around in Arpaio’s pink sheets
They kill care and the crimes don't stop
From Execs up the top to the brothers on the block
We don't quit running, this relay don't end
We pass along the stories with a pad and a pen
Keyboard and wifi, yes I'm fully charged
Say cheese, Got you on the network, Sarge.


{Just Brea verse 3}
It's a good day today
I'm moving to the finish line fast
Finally made it to a place
A place where I'm hoping this is all gonna last
Cuz I've been climbing a mountain so high
Reached the top now I see clear skies
And my days my days my days my days
Are blessed in so many ways

{Pigeon John verse 4}
I'm hearing what u gon' do with that beat buy a Camaro
Roll with a freak with a physique in American peril
She dusting bows out the window like she's Nia Farrell
I'm kinda in over my head I know the road is narrow
I'm on my balancing act me singing in the rain
Water bottle full of Kettle One leaning outta range
Here come the wino spinning like vinyl
I hope he never shows up again
It's ok another quick line oh fix me up in time
And I will never ever cuss at yo friend
Ya right, that's like a hippie in Air Nikes
Been left alone so long you'll never fair right
Am I a outcast or just don't wanna fit
Gotta itchy trigger and I can't get rid of it
I'm the 1st shot misfire drunk or dead
Love being outta my set Messiah blood redrum

{Medusa verse 5}
Hip-Hop bass drop straight from the lip
Bottom hitting off his chest
Snare snapping off his cheek, a cipher of vets
I know yall feel that beat
With 3 busting B-girls flowing round the outside
Imagine hip-hop if 2Pac was still alive
Grit & grime vocab on glow
He'd probably still get hit for being too political
I'm not even a nigga though
But because of him I wanna grab my genitals
Then gather them gentiles around me
I know random subliminal & counting
Filling up my crate
Next to it is my very first Egyptian Lover cassette tape
If snapped it could be reattached
With regular scotch tape now gimme that
Freaky kinky situation
For all u female population
And that he did they reinvented his whole scene
With them swaggin Cali kids
Now I see what Mom meant
It's nothing new under the sun & that style is back again
Cardigans Mohawks
Glasses with no lenses Capris were the skinny jeans
Not tryna defend 'em
But back then it was glam rock worn by cats like Gene Simmons

{Busdriver verse 6}
All of my niggas they stay brilliant, while u were looking for sleek trends
Try to refurbish a yesteryear or burning the candle on each ends
Stare down the barrel of my precious ear and get invited to a deep cleanse
By the way I'm rich as fuck and all of my money is pretend
So put up, put or shut up, put your MFn hands where they can see 'em
When u put your hands in the air they become a star map
So I car jack the average Joe while on the way to a shuttle launch
I juggle font into a casserole of cerebrum (hey Driver start over)
On top of that glass mountain I'm a golden corpse
In a car crash I drove the Porsche
Stop holding your breath you're Pony Express & I'm a show horse
Feel that brain freeze as i change keys
And lunge notes at face meat & silence that hate speech
I get scooped from baggage claim, electrocute that magnet brain
But nobody made the flight, my brainwaves crash the plane
This song plays as some futuristic C-span
Where I'm the memory of the last sunset written in free hand

{Olmeca verse 7}
Cuando corro no grito socorro logro llegar hasta el otro lado de la cerca pongo el logo
Todos conectados corriendo en este circulo nos vemos de nuevo luego me entero que otro es lo mismo
De lucha a lucha mucha buya  la tuya la mía de todos en todo aquí pues muchos modos
Le pego duro and I hear “yes we can" thought I heard it in the past people say “si se puede!”
We ain’t running from the cops; we run towards the pops
Soldados in the struggle we don’t do it for no props (hey)
My people made to go the distance resilience
We run laps on racists, bigots and corporate interest
Una carrera con aliados is like instant
Victoria para el equipo we run with intent
Paso el bastón les dejo un mensaje
This the type of music that makes hip hop classic!

Thee Only Life

(ab sings)

{Verse 1}
I'm starting to get impatient, no longer wanna wait
'Cause life is what u make it
And finally starting to reap the benefits from what u created
U know I took a leap
To my kinfolk I been so dedicated
Ooh I'm on the road again
A tour van is what we rolling in
Me & my closest friends
We feel like we supposed to win
But u get out what u put in and
It's the only life I've ever known
But lately I'm going through these phases, changes I had to make
The truth I had to face it
And when I went away I was merely trying to make sense
Felt like I was fading, Satan, stay away and
Flee from me my God's incredible
Force too powerful trust undoubtable
Just don't let Him go 'cause He never forgot about u
Even when u thought that u were not going to escape it
He always thought about u
Picked up yo slack and guided u what to do
Had yo back and water, shelter, clothing & food
Mold the youth and build them strong
When they get old they won't have departed from

(josef horn solo)

(ab talks)

{Verse 2}
And so when the day ends, I end it just the same
As I do when it begins, get on my knees & praying I
I thank Him for the seasons, losses & my trials & tribs
'Cause if I did not go through things then I'd have never known
Or much less appreciated everything He gave me
To make the music that I'm making
And I just feel amazed by the life that I created
Look in my baby's face, and she's the reason I'm motivated
To hit the road again, til a tour bus is what we rolling in
By a leer jet flown in

'Cause can't nobody stop us from winning
'Cause we got out what we put in and
It's thee only life we've ever known

(ab talks, oracle sings)

{J. Mitchell sings}
It's thee only life that I've ever known
We travel around the globe
But there's no place quite like home
When I am lonely i sit & write these songs
Some for joy some for pain
Some for love some for merely dancing
I believe the children are our future
We should pass the culture down
And if we don't then who will show them how
If u ain't working u ain't eating
What u sew is what u reaping
U get out what u put in and
It's thee only life I've ever known

Sunspot Jonz, Eligh, The Grouch....produced by Kenny Segal

 Kan Of Whoop Ass (reprise)

(intro)
Project Blowed
Rhymesayers
Living Legends
Independent music
Let's go!

{Blueprint}
The Midwest's finest amid the best rhymers
Peasants in my presence address me as your Highness
Never been the 1 to debate who the fliest
Or who shoot the most or who get the highest
My level in rap remain in tact for a decade
2 classics dropped my art rank amongst the best made
Print I swing sound just like a switchblade
Aim it at your face give that ass a quick fade

{Psalm One}
Yes I'm from the C-I
Got  my Illinois up
Yes I'm in a crew but really I'm in a boys club
Real talk i better be stacking my blessing
'Cause I got a really good deal & deal's bring lessons
A regular dame met a nice dude
Spit rounds for the Brother he said I like u
Come join my mighty crew & even though they rarely play her
I'm a player the queen of Rhymesayers

{Musab}
I'm still singing the late street blues
Roaming the West Coast trying to make these moves
Started out with 18 dudes
Headshots the crew let the name ring through
I'm down with the A-Team too
Me & Abstract Rude in a Cadillac coup
On the road trying to grab that loot
Red black green in some black strap boots

{Abstract Rude}
Vanglorious co-founder of the Blowed notorious
Next I was the X Clan of the Battleaxe Warriors West
Threw down that bloody axe & started Rhymesaying
Now I'm slaying these chicken liver niggas in the frying pan
I saute em til I can taste em I cause mayhem
I flambe em I lambaste em
The translation they can't face em I pancake em
I lost patience they got wasted

{LMNO}
The Frisbee turned into a boomerang
From the LBC maneuver the slang
LMNO's the name Visionaries the crew
Since the Tribe was Unique been rocking with Ab Rude
Bless up that dude's one of the best easy
U can hear & see for yourself witness believe me
Til the next go around u can find me in the sound
Walls of separation only good for tearing down

{Neb Luv}
Neb Luv LBC Jah Skills Warren G
Def Jam NYC Unit 5 reality
Back then kept the Kush on deck
Hit the Good Life a few times just to get respect
Polly with the Mass Men we knocked out Seeking
And Set It Off with The Heist that's when the crew was peaking
Wheels up yeah we off on tour
Hit Europe 3 times hood stars for sure

{Otherwize}
All of us were monsters 1st before the Blowed sponsored us
Killer Cali king far as concrete I'm a conqueror
Crenshaw's Obama yeah choke hold a local artist
Then I turn they cypher to my oval office
Rappers better off with Jodeci boots or singing topless
Or bringing homage fuck yo couch
Oscar the Grouch feed me garbage
I'm Otherwize on Florence with influence Black Forest founding father

{Kail aka William Thedford}
Can only promise a sucker pain I'm Sutter Cane or I'm Clubber Lang
The way every quote drive a slut insane
'Cause life's a bitch but me & these niggas running trains
So if you're on the track step back or select another lane
Duck a fade or tuck your chain before they find you by The Cecil
Stuck on Main with stomach pains
It's Boulevard Billions bitch you know the fuckin name
Service clique 43's e-money game nothing changed

{VerBS}
See the Blowed Swim Team Hellfyre u read that
Started way before when they was rocking a red cap
Back at Hamilton had the clouds where my heads at
Midnight Records where this soldier was breathed at
Got a lot of homies & I'm on many teams
Seen so many circles & I seen so many scenes
Kick ya ass with pizazz & the bars man they so extreme
Gotta thank having this style to my upbringing


{Open Mike Eagle}
We the last sons of the Blowed no orphanage
8 Neo's and each has a Morpheus
Soloists cliqued like neocon globalists
Hand to hand hustle or campaign promo pic
Swim Team indie the ole fashion way
From Rae's faster blade to A-Team's Maskaraid
Inspired by Outliers
So RIP to G-Black & peace to the Outsiders

{Alpha MC}
I used to work at Fred Segal
Now I'm just killing the beats from Ken Segal
Came in the rap scene at 16
Young dred clean with the freezing 16s
Went to the Blowed to test the rhymes
Got served a lot but I progressed with time
Explored different scenes changed my perspective
Then it put me on a whole separate grind

{Droop Capone}
The holy poet keeps it vicious & nutritious out in PyraMid City
A buff buffet I got infinite bars with me
Jah Love all day my imperial guard's with me
I'm satellite high I got Sirius stars with me
A KDAY mix & Queen Ann Park equipped me
Now it's Blowed & B-L yall officially gone fishing
Dr. Oop's world class don't sleep on me family
Or fuck it wait til I pass & holler Grammy at the Grammys either way

{Luckyiam}
It's Luck I'm chilling
Living Legends youtube a few million
I'm a Journeyman built it from the floor to ceiling
We should probably write a book showing how to kill it
Naw youngstas don't want that
Some rock shows vox be on track
That's wack doot put that on my tattoos
Bad dude we done been around the world too

{Sunspot Jonz}
Sunspot Jonz you better watch the real throne
Mystik Journeymen from the Living Legendz
Occupation Killer Assassination flow
West Coast in here releasing your soul
Fuck the radio praising dumb assholes
And down to battle getting atcha' at your damn show
Promoters & vultures you're now an organ donor
To this 4 track king coming out of California

{Eligh}
As the earth turns around the sun & I begin my final push
You will begin to see the one without talking to burning bush
The one being the wonderful ways the planet shifts into the next phase
Resume demonstrate my embodiment of monumental speech
Instruction fluctuation of tongue create Magic
Havoc and peace at the same time so spastic
Yet so in control & so chemically soothing
Always Legendary I'm always in the mix

{The Grouch}
There's an MC flowing deep & wide & I
Can't stop rising with the tide tonight
Stopped at a Slow Light survived the drive
Momma these Lions gonna ride or die
Yep all I need is a Paint coat
To Rejuvenate Marinate no scapegoat
Codename Grouch never be Torn again
Oh yes God bless The Scorpion

 16. For Tha Luv....ft. Aceyalone & Aloe Blacc

 For Tha Luv

{Abstract Rude verse 1}
A piece of my heart goes in
A piece of my heart gets tore out if we tear apart as friends
'Cause I'm in it for the love
So I'm showing my gratitude I'll send it back to u
If u showed love for Abstract Rude & Tribe Unique
'Cause we did it for the love
Ain't yet made a mill since we signed 1st deal
And that hurt for real but it ain't killed my will
Still pushing with a cushion keep pushing
And we still gotta keep that feel
'Cause we do it for the love
The clubs the open mics the show nights
To finally see his name in Fox Theater marquee glowing lights
Opening for Pretty Lights
And we did it for the love

{Chorus}
I need everybody's hands up
Now put your hands together
'Cause u can clap I dare ya'
It's for the love I feel for ya'
U support me I support ya'
It's Project Blowed forever
And we did it for the love

{Aceyalone verse 2}
Yeah they definitely did a job on me
Married to the music holy matrimony
The only way they know me is rocking with my celebrations
For the preservation, lifetime dedication
One nation underneath a thunder cloud
We pray for rain so the well is never running out
U just run your mouth yeah we run the gamut
Run the marathon & keep running away the bandits
And it was done for brung for & sung for
The love of something we never had to want for

And if u want more just say the word
Or play the curb & let the love go undisturbed
For all the people round the world I rock for
And rock wit just to make sure the pieces fit
And all the hometown homies through all of it
One life to live & love is how we calling it - Love

{Chorus Aloe}
I need everybody's hands up
Now put your hands together
'Cause u can clap I dare ya'
It's for the love I feel for ya'
U support me I support ya'
It's ATU forever
And we did it for the love

{Aloe Blacc verse 3}
I put my heart & soul in it
Finally made it putting more soul in it
Real music that's my whole gimmick
Feels like it took a life time though didn't it?
And if I had to live it all over
I would face them battles like a Buffalo soldier
Can't erase the past like a file out the folder
Embrace the struggle it's them hard times that mold ya
And if I had to do it all again
I would spend more time making music with my friends
And spend less time making music for the ends
But do the ends justify the means it depends
U can ask why Ceasar loved Brutus
I wonder why did Jesus love Judas
Love is blind they can't see why I do this
For the love of the music it's true bliss

{Chorus J.Mitchell}
I need everybody's hands up
Now put your hands together
'Cause u can clap I dare ya'
It's for the love I feel for ya'
U support me I support ya'
It's Project Blowed forever

{Zulu Poem}
It's for the love
Love is not conditional
True love is unconditional
With an intent to end suffering & bring about happiness
From this point on...

(all sing, talk)

 Kan Of Whoop Ass Team Supreme x Project Blowed remix
ft. Riddlore?, Ellay Khule, Shames Worthy, Gel Roc, Jroz, Brandi Kane, Jizzm, Self Jupiter,
Zumbi/Zion I, Myka 9, Medusa

(Ab & J. Mitchell intro)
Project Blowed - let's go

{Riddlore?}
I'm a Blowedian but I'm trotting the globe as it spins
Plotting my course down the road as it bends
Outlaw from the wild west like I should be on horseback
Get high in the saddle while I ride to the battle
Getting live like the ammo when the hammer strikes the pen
Rhymin Riddlore strikes again
No water for your garden will have your pansies dying
For blowing it on the mic like dandelions

{Ellay Khule}
Grew up as a LA kid struggled through this Cali culture
Served 'em by the ton so u know I kept a fatter quota
I am master Yoda put u in a bad position like yoga
Puffin on some doja crushing like a bulldozer
Shoulda listened when I towed ya now I'm spittin like a cobra
I'm Ellay Khule or Rifleman so fuck what they told ya
General from the Life or the Blowed when I'm on that Hip Hop Kclan shit
Goodlife Bullys are the crews that I ran with

{Shames Worthy}
The name's Shames Worthy but u probably know Raphi
From the Good Life or Blowed in the early years I suppose
That's where I paid dues before my crew made moves
It was all about the stylin and serving fools
I wrote my 1st raps on Pico & Fairfax
Linked up with LPG started The Tunnel Rats
Some other cats would laugh we made our own path
I'm a shooting star travel so far with an 8 bar paragraph

{Gel Roc}
Original Gel Roc Life Seen Differently
E Times Two don't forget Mass Ministry
Underground rap kings yes the epitome
If yall didn't know this yo epiphany
No future in your fronting when u recognize history
Villains no sympathy never been busier
The output is linear my outlook is grittier
From LM to Whittier yall just shittier

{Jroz}
They see me on the streets & they go
Jroz I remember u back from the Blowed
Spittin in the cypher twisting up a Optimo
Piecing in my blackbook so when's your next show
Tell 'em go check the website might catch the next flight
Keep the text at the pen write tight like left right
Sleep on Abstract that's a Rude awakening
My dude is home weighing things I'm doing my lady thing

{Brandi Kane}
Super California-istic super collab
Super sick wit it who is this chick who is that
It's them Project Blowedians act like u know me bitch
Shout out to them flows we kick & outta town shows we did
And all them MCs murdered that don't exist
Resting in they  own piss yeah go on pour a sip
They done for got the pump at your front door
Now U unsure bloodclot they don't want war

{Jizzm}
We're ancient alien B-boys transforming in dinosaur mode
Abstract Underground Fossils u can find us at the Blowed
Eating MCs up heating it up when times are so cold
Bleeding them up beating em up machete slice u with a flow
We stay ready the all deadly Illasophic merciless medley
Is holding steady, life's too short to sweat the petty
The throw was heavy when we whip a can out
Don't ask me for a handout like herpes on yr thumb & u can standout

{Self Jupiter}
I thrill em Cadillac Coup De Ville'em
Been chillin since the 80's & top billing
That hippy to the hippy the hop feeling
Kill 'em off convertible soft ceiling
Mobile a beast black Matt Dillon
When I tell u I'm one of the best who ever did it
I'm not kidding. Shocks go a lil' bit lower when I get in
Where I fit in grinning, Prince Fielder on the mic in the 9th inning
I walk off homie 'cause I like winning

{Zumbi/Zion I}
Damn
Where's my heart at? Where did I leave it?
They call me constant can't fuckin believe it
Or maybe its nonsense I'm being facetious
Puffin the reefer still stuck in the speaker
Deeming me conscious marvelous content
Looking in the mirror can't see if u haunted
I'm after Marcus still chuckin a ohm
Bustin a poem & long after I'm gone I'm still moving the moon
Sun & the stars that's who we are
When I'm blessing a bar my squad rep for god
Peace to the earths seeking a birth
That's why I'm speaking in verse of what u feel is church

{Myka 9}
It's all love it's my mantra my vocal Merkabah
My choke hold hurts robbers I told all of my obsessed
Hype show at my concerts like u info sponsored
So when u go bonkers off this song then bomb 1st
I thirst for the unrehearsed verse that conquered
The warmonger found armor from the Dali Lama
The dilemma that became a delivery I foundered
Then I burn like the 23rd Psalm word to my Mama
I'm stronger more harm than hood who's good living
So I stood in prison I should listen to the good book written
Let wings emerge like bird shittin Saint Myka rhyme archangel splittin
This trans-dimensional veil of the game hittin
From ballers like badminton all hail radio
Good Life Project Blowed these MCs that been bitten
But they gotta feed they children...listen

{Medusa}
How can I squeeze it all in
Before I was Medusa with the hot damn pen
They called me Lady Tick Tuck for my pop-locking
Breaking 1 Radiotron Groovetron etc.
Not being cocky but I only have 8 bars for moving on
Stepped from a cage S.I.N. to The Good Life stage
And Stranger Inside is the film u can catch me on
Project Blowed icon
On the bra strap many of these broads done dangled from
And got a grammy with Ozomatli to show u the type of shit I'm on
U seen me...
Rocking stage dropping jewels for your seedlings
Need I go on?

 Pride

{Verse 1}
I'm stuck on stupid with the track on loop
Headline news saw on youtube
It's raw it's too true, it's grim our future yo
Got a fact that we just Googled Oh!
Wikipedia search so we can be the expert
Get ready for the media circus
Satellites reaching every corner of Earth
They can even go beneath the surface
So many rumors of
Overwhelming conspiracy like the Sapruder film
And was Lee Harvey's gun the only 1 that would shoot at him
In a grassy knoll did u really think that would explain it all
Aw hell to the naw that bull**** I never fell for

{Chorus}
Pride before the fall
Pride before the fall

{Verse 2}
When u fall for silly gimmicks you're ultimately guinea pigs
Like they can try any chemical on u little kids
Yall not with it 'cause we're all not ignorant
We're not as gullable in the new millenium
No don't ask won't know won't learn won't grow won't earn diploma wage low
Won't have no dough might go illegal & then u get locked in Chino
And the system is
The last place that a young brother wants to get twisted in
There's no guarantee that you'll be released if u face imprisonment
'Cause it's meant to hold not rehabilitate our weary souls
Aw hell to the naw won't let 'em hold me in the jail walls

{Verse 3}
No life on pause I used to write on walls before the 3 strike laws man I had balls
My freedom comes before it all & pride u know it comes before the fall
Bye-bye see 'em court u off u went to court & lost
It's bad fortune dog what yo lawyer cost can u avoid the tank?
No one likes to admit it but inside prison men get raped
Cry cry but it's on deaf ears so u can hold your tears
'Cause no one hears some love some feared
Some don't belong here off their path they veered
And probably could've had a rap career
And get this some innocent who didn't do it at all
But couldn't snitch on the homies involved
Some Mumia Abu Jamals & damn they finally got Orenthal

{Chorus}
Pride before the fall
Pride before the fall

(intro)
Dear God...

{Verse 1}
A servant's prayer i pray wrongful jailed prisoner get a fair day
From a desolate cage to a freedom staircase
Even if their mistakes got em villafied
Never get rehabilitated if u still inside mentally
On the outside u will not deal with the intensity
When 3 hot meals and a cot's not rent free
The penalties they require retribution
To escape the injury done by the institution
They fit the neuce & u put your neck in
So what you doing should be in school getting lessons
You're only fooling yourself u & your best friends
Next time you're dealt cards u better play your best hand
I'm straight a flush u made a full house
4 of a kind to royal flush ya lost out
And the moral is careful how u go about
U gamble wrong with yo life & u go without

{Chorus}
Whole crowd is loud vibrating the windows
Music is in the valley of my soul cresciendos
It echoes & calms the savage beast to let go
Live at peace & reach the plateau new level
The glow follow the channel
Piano & cello guitar & pedal
And blow horns flutes will bellow
Kick snare & symbol sounds of the ghetto

{Verse 2}
The Staples Center right by skid row
It  make u wonder do the Lakers know I guess so
Respect to those that's giving back
Money just  makes u more of who u are a giving soul go figure that
They think they figured out how niggas act
Sit us down set us back & u'll still wonder how we did adapt
Like all of indie rap is on our backs whatever we lack
May our daughters & sons be the benefactor
They couldn't run with Jesse on the same track
I'm coming at u in 3D halfway around & came back
Authentic with 5senses walking slower as a daddy
My solution when I'm living in this time whooping Asses
On the edge with a pipe Relay no one to hand to it off to
Keeeping the feel this is the only life that I give love to
Reprize with a remix no weak pride I said em all there
Now get your freaking hands in the air - thats my lp yall

{Outro}
I apppreciate u for listening i'm one of u if u heard me
I gotta thank all those that lended time, love & effort into this project
'Cause Lord knows it wasn't a lotta money involved
My career started with Fatjack so its only fitting I end it with a Fatjack track
I maintain nothing but unconditional love for u big brother
Dr. EZ namaste Tribe Unique yall already know what it is
Zulu after all these years its still me & u my nig ATU forever
This project wouldn't have been possible without 4 key ppl
Biz One a true homie who was my muse during pre production of the album & did a few key tracks
Rawz Ill Remedy such a good dude who recorded & engineered the entire project
Where Kenny Segal my Jewish brother from another mother filled in the gaps
& Dave Atkins my Australian band mate of the Resin Dogs family who then acted
As musical director w/his professional touches
What u heard surely couldn't have happened without them yall
Shout out to the other Producers: Dibiase, Vitamin D, DJ Katch, Chief of feelinmusic,
