You Used To Call Me…

That’s a real one in your reflection
Without a follow, without a mention
You really pipin’ up on these niggas
You gotta be, nice for what, to these niggas?

#Mood

I haunt MCs like Mephistopheles, bringing swords of Damocles
Secret service keep a close watch as if my name was Kennedy
Abstract raps simple with a street format
Gaze into the sky and measure planets by parallax
Check out the retrograde motion, kill the notion
Of biting and recycling and calling it your own creation
I feel like Rockwell, somebody’s watching me
I got no privacy whether on land or at sea
And for you biting zealots, your raps are cacophonic
Hypocrite, critic, but deep inside you wish you had the pop hit
It hurts don’t it, a refugee come to your turf
And take over the earth

Just Another Rainy Day

“To most white people, jazz means black and jazz means dirt, and that’s not what I play. I play black classical music” Nina Simone

Sleep in peace when day is done

Birds flyin’ high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me.
Yeah, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, ooooooooh…
And I’m feelin’ good.
Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River runnin’ free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me,
And I’m feelin’ good
Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know,
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean.
Sleep in peace when day is done: that’s what I mean,
And this old world is a new world and a bold world for me…
Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine, and I know how I feel..
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice…Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.” -Lauryn Hill

War in The mind

lauryn_hill2_jpg_630x365_q85

If everyone is a product of this society, who will say the things that need to be said, and do the things that need to be done, without compromise? Truth will never start out popular in a world more concerned with marketability than righteousness. It will initially suffer ridicule and even violence- yet ultimately it is undeniable. All of humanity is living in a dream world, but suffering real consequences.” – Lauryn Hill

A badge is a pass to do whatever
So now we living in fear
Of the people here to protect us
Yo, they lie and disrespect us
Kill us, and then neglect us
The problem when nobody
Sees the view from our perspective
My people shed blood from the acres you had stole
Now my people shedding blood
On the gravel left in the cold
