    Default Grits - Track Review

    Grits

    Birth of a Prince
    2003

    Allah Real

    RZA




    (Allah Real)

    (Chorus)

    When I was small
    We had nothing at all
    We used to eat Grits, for dinner
    It was pain
    almost drive a man insane
    what we could find for
    to survive another day
    but I said now...

    (RZA)

    An old killa bee once hummed me a tune
    Stay up at night, don't sleep on your moon
    Four seeds in the bed, eight seeds in the room
    Afternoon cartoon, we would fight for the spoon
    Old Earth in the kitchen, yell "it's time to eat"
    Across the floor, ya hear a dozen stampeding feet
    One pound box of sugar, and a stick of margarine
    A hot pot of Grits got my family from starvin'
    Loose with the welfare cheese, thick wit' the gravy
    used to suck it, straight out the bottle as a baby
    Steamy hot meal served less than five minutes
    Big silver pot, boilin' water, salt in it
    House full of brothers and sisters, the pop's missin'
    Pilgrim box on the stove in the kitchen

    (Chorus)

    (Masta Killa)

    Young shorties in my hood started hustlin'
    Packin' bags at the neighborhood associate
    Growin' up, not as fortunate to have that fly shit
    I'm too young, no jobs would hire me legit
    You walkin' down the street with ya gun in ya hand
    Drinkin, thinkin' of a master plan
    Your Old Earth can't afford what ya friends got
    So you roll up to the spot, with ya thing 'pon cock
    And it seems worth the takin', stomach achin'
    Morning star veggie bacon go good with the Grits
    Now let's take it back for real
    when we used to build at ghetto Big Wheels
    with the shoppin' cart wheels, and wood to nail the seat on
    Girls skippin' rope in the street
    the Summer heat, left the jelly prints stuck to they feet
    Skelly chief, flippin' baseball cards for keeps
    Momma said it's gettin' late, and it's time to come eat

    (Chorus)

    Love it, simple and very effective. Nostalgia at it's finest.

    Very smooth and mellow. Great lyrics - quite an untypical MK approach - but it works. Great track

    LOL@song title hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I've always hated grits because they're nasty. Oatmeal is better. QTip of A Tribe Called Quest said he eats grits on We've Got Jazz song.


    About that life
