Jersey Soul 03:52
welcome to my basement dirt off my pavement more than entertainment this right here is a statement just a kid on a grind in a world so unkind rhymes in his mind perfecting his design so divine, shine, we about to climb take it anyway you like or you can take a hike this is life through a mic Mj in flight steph behind the three Kapernick with the knee visuals, for everything, everything we see y’all better recognize this right here is so specialized this revolution ain’t televised open your ears an analyze hoodie Melo with the flow 99 on these streets on the low just waiting to blow welcome to the show this more than dough give me cheese & the butter a rose from the gutter fresh food from the dumpster game for a youngster a L for buster I on my tunes East /West another brook we about to thunder hook everyday I’m trying live on so every moment gotta go strong my soul on over everyone of these songs so you know it’s more than media we on young black & gifted we ain’t convicted we ain’t afflicted skin committed vocals fitted these ears are gifted don’t get it twisted vocals ballistic mamas wisdom with a a Jersey rhythm black system with a light symptom a dark mission with a bright vision all these bars but no prison African chapter black panther Wakanda grander marvel candor avenge the slander we the commanders we the answers lived a struggle made me humble got something to say so you won’t hear me mumble on top of the rubble as the world crumbles concrete jungles and introverted struggles Burst these bubbles flex these muscles solve these puzzles keep these hustles grab these shovels dig these tunnels out these troubles my scope on the Hubble
Push & Pull 04:52
Same mind same grind we all trying to read these signs of the times some searching for that absolute high I'm just trying to give reasons in rhyme stack a quarter for every dime and a quarter for every climb then take a nickel for every other crime made against mine from mine to stop me from shinning forcing me to keep grinding other souls keep crying, wonder why we trying seems like they lying the young simbas keep dying privilege keep flying ,habits keep buying our mommas keep sighing everything social wonder why the media keep spying we give it up so easily treat our lives like a harlot we share it so frequently conveniently we follow but won't get liked equally deleted so needlessly wishing someone needed me the world keeps feeding me so obscenely bull & foolery keep fooling the fool in me feel like i loosing me you keep abusing me all of this nonsense just confusing we and the eniemes taking my memories blemish my emories suck all of my energies continuous injuries so when it's time to push and pull just remember me Hook they keep pulling us back so we don't move forward now we stuck in a chorus another tree in orchard so we push back you can't do me like that no no I won't let you do me like that you pull I push back harder they say it's mind over matter got me feeling like my brain about shatter quick to serve you on platter when you try climb that ladder thats the only time when we start to matter try start new chapter run little faster life's a wheel I'm a hamster that's the game we trying master I keep this art in my heart hoping that the 2 never part maybe we can be the start are we the board or the dart soul or a heart we read the books but are we really smart we run the streets but are we really concrete the foundation seems weak we let slip when we speak shows in the physique this game is oblique check your technique follow leaders through a melody moving crowds for a remedy pulling us closer to the edge know the ledge In objects some pledge that's the wedge wont let us ahead stuck in beds counting threads let it get to our heads now we stuck on meds they claim its mental like my wisdom dental I'm the pot & the kettle that black metal that won't settle careful thorns in a rose pedal play no games with the devil all this ain't accidental
I ain't the typical I ain't hypocritical I ain't some mythical I bleed through like visuals I'm an individual mind-state inexplicable skin tone inadmissible emphasis on every syllable I'm Black Fruit with a strong root faith like Ruth, I am Groot I'm a guardian protecter of my galaxy for every Sam that sung i bring the gravity this is rhapsody let me sing my wrongs let me right my songs out of place so the lonely just prolongs scratches on my arms picked cotton from these farms stuck with life's prongs asking where do I belong I keep my eyes woke, silent alarms half anti too much social harms run along play the game, chase thrones eyes aimed aerial my mind stays flying above drones outside I hear the groans cracking of bones eyes slave to phones searching for justice for just us actions taught only to trust us but truth we won't discuss my melanin causes disgust so I confide within these 4 walls with one stall one call just these words and one mic prisoner to life I fight to flash light in these dark nights it's my introverted right so let me extrovert this mic Hook- I know, I know where my faith is These folks behaving so basic Some hypocrites and some racist They so faceless, they so faceless I ain't want hear it i ain't want see it i ain't wanna believe it i ain't wanna relive it lock the door throw away the key let me create my own peace words be the firing piece so much need to release pain i continue to lease it just continues to increase I just want it to cease I keep my head my up since I was a young pup could take the easy way sip from the devils cup should I follow daddy's path, one sip two 4 sips what it do the 5th blame everyone but you paid attention to the view don't complicate my hue instead of the 8 ball i decided to be the cue the last one on the table keep my composure, remain stable, stay faithful skin is labeled so they can disable keep me with the Cain instead of being able Birthed from a strange limb over shallow water Reflections of king fighting no slaughter Taught to never swim sweet seed thick skin this is how the story begin they say my color offends watch these branches bend trying to withstand the wind give me this win I wonder if I could blend but instead confide within these 4 walls one stall one call these words, and one mic life fight ,flash light in dark nights it's my introverted right so let me extrovert this mic
One Struggle 04:37
