    Default dope roots manuva lyrics!

    From Witness the Fitness (one hope) - Voted best ever UK Hip Hop track.

    "task master burst the bionic zit splitter,
    break neck speed we drown ten pints of bitter,
    we lean all day and some say that aint' productive,
    could that depend upon the demon that we're stuck with,
    cus right now, i see clearer than most,
    i sit here contented with this cheese on toast,
    i feel tha pain, of a third world famine,
    said wait, we count these blessins and keep jammin,
    scum bag, scum of the earth, his worth was nil,
    until he gained the skill of tounges,
    from 15 years young, strait to my greyback self,
    i stay top shelf material!

    - Rodney Smith -

    Roots Manuva's brilliant, best UK rapper IMO.
    Got like 3 of his albums and they all straight fire!

    He is due to drop a new album soon. All his albums were classic, i especially feel Run Come Save Me but his most recent effort Awfully Deep also is great stuff. He has everything lyrics, flow and most important his biggest pro his voice its unbelievable perhaps the prototype of the ultimate Hip Hop Mc voice.

    For real, Wu Uk that is OLD stuff, but classic, Roots Manuva's stuff is fire, but like White Mantis AI said, I kinda prefer Jehst over Roots Manuva...check it from one of my favourite songs of his:

    Airbourne, my thoughts shrouded by cloudform
    the line ravaged in the wake of this groundwar
    the quint-essential outlaw
    eye of the storm my tears fall in the torrential downpour
    the flood, ya deathwish written in blood
    i came in from the cold clothes dripping with mud
    gripping the club, primitive a stig in the dump
    swinging a punch, the bad seed pick of the bunch
    i drink black rain, take another swig and im drunk
    taste venom on the tip of my tongue, my lips cold
    spittin out toxins i couldnt dissolve but with hope
    never sold my soul for fools gold, so im still free
    but too numb to feel pity, some broke down
    now this still City's a ghost town
    snowflakes cover the ground in white carpets
    seasons of espionage as time passes, the lion-hearted
    survival of the hardest artist
    my open arms embrace darkness
    still craving carnage and informy
    evil parasites starve on this carcass of industry


    You can see me as cynical, trapped in my own gothic vision
    encapsulating chaos in this composition
    calculated like the lies of a politition
    gripping the slipshot i size up the opposition
    I drop a match in the clouds and watch the flames rise
    Fire water falling from these grey skies, to painted trainlines
    Chrome over red brick reflective, like a jem stone in a sess pit
    Jehst gives belief to a skeptic
    the truth neglected like open wounds that turn septic
    Infected by the fourth toungue of a liar
    now my thoughts are the color of fire
    and my nights spend one in the kaya,
    un-inspired by the freak show i see ghosts dance in the trail of my weedsmoke

    my words are folk law that survive the cold war
    new world order and so forth - i go north
    ankle deep in snowfall, leaping over dry stone walls with a hold all
    steam clouds rise from my firey breath
    its the last twilight before the silence of death (death)


    peace

    yes. id go 4 phi life cypher over jehst, though only as a group (Life,Phillie and Nappa). Life's solo albums are dope but get a bit samey with jus him on the track. He doesnt experiment enough, espicially on Everday Life. Also would LOVE to hear Roots or Life rip a RZA track!
