View Full Version : Fuck the industry

12-12-2008, 11:48 AM
Yo It Wasn't That Long Ago
Rap Music Wasn't About Arms And Hoes
Ice And Chains.. It Was About Life And Pain
The Winding Struggle Of A Life Maintained
But Nowadays's It's More Like A Chart For Attire
Cars An' Clothes, You See The Art Has Retired
Yet The Spirit Is Alive And Well...
You Gotta Search.. Inside It Dwells..
Sleeping.. See It's Breathing...
Growing Stronger With Every Seed Whats Dreaming.
Rattle The Cage.. Awake The Demon..
Let Go An Attack Back At The Industry
Assemble Together.. Move Like the Infantry
Throw Real Mix tapes At Every Lable Exec..
Put Our Deal On The Table For Next..
Death To The "Lil's"... We Enslave All The Rest

I'm Stuck Somewhere Between Pride And Purpose
I've Come To Find Out That the industry Is Worthless
Even Though I've Continued To Divide The Surface
Segregation Has Arose Again Into The Picture Of Thought
Killers Of thought thrown Into Physical Drought
Listen... Cause Iron Pumping', Doesn't Really Ease My State Of Mind
Cause I'll Erase The Time, Your Mothers Mate Arrived
To Arrange His Bride, And Make Him Stay Outside
And Turn Right Back Around, Make Him Say Fuck That Pass The pound
So Listen Rug rat, If It Was Up To Me You'd Be A Past clown

think about how many civilizations have risen, how many have fallen
do to all their imperfections bubbling' in the cauldron
we're just one planet on one dimensional plain
in a universe wit an infinite domain
who am i to complain, my despair is insignificant
an ocean of sob stories, and mine is inner mixed wit it
because of this i find it hard for me to be intimate....
complex black man, what makes me tick is intricate
i try to touch the sky like Icarus, but crash n' burn
using' foreign substances to mask concern
asked to burn, them bridges that lead me to this conundrum
but in my mind that's asking' to forget where i come from

My kitchen is huge, we do the dishes with missiles
I brush the floor with a burner- when I step in, it sizzles
There's no flames to fit in, I just spit at the dish
Flows griddle the fish, and then cremates crinkle crisp
I'm a culinary supporter- I call rappers vegetables
Highly digestible, and soft in hot water
Y'all mixed it up, either admit to being women or get your skirt lifted up
Think I switched it up but I spit food, here's a plate- I fixed it up
Picture me, giving a shit, I been to the joint
Writing lyrics onto missiles- Give 'em venomous points
While you're wearing designer attire, I'm writing this fire
Might excite me or you might be a liar
Got the type of mind that Einstein would admire-
But just remember I'm a writer if you lifers need a writer for hire..

whats good james, its been a while since i dropped through, good to see your still doing your thing......

nice verses man, i'm feeling these for sure. got some nice lines in there, that third verse is sick without a doubt, much respect. the only criticism i can find though is that at some parts the flow doesnt really work as you dont use rhyming couplets, particularly near the end of the first verse and in the middle of the second but apart from that your flow is solid. the fourth verse seems kinda rushed, or like you'd gone beyond your real moment of inspiration while writing.

but anyways man, great work, i'll definetely check out what else you have in the works.
