Track Twelve, Verse Two, Finding Forever

January 3, 2008

Ashes and snowfalls
I wonder when the roll call for heaven gon’ come
forever gon’ come
It’s a cold world and I can never go numb
look fear in the eyes, say I never gon’ run
sooner than later, I know the cheddar gon’ come
for now I write the world letters to better the young
On tree by jury, together we hung
Now we let our chains hang and gang bang to maintain
‘ghanastan goin’ through the same thing
It trickles down at each other we aim pain
I shoot for stars, peace and exclusive cars
Through the while I learned to earn hard
Watch gangstas turn God in the mist of war
no matter how much I elevate, I kiss the floor
It was in the wind when she said Dilla was gone
That’s when I knew we’d live forever through song

Track Ten, Verse Three, Fantastic Vol. 2

December 13, 2007

yea, yea to the beat
yea, yea ya know it can’t-can’t stop
it can’t-can’t quit
Stance answers put up your hands and fist
for the band, and if ya can’t stand
one of my man’s dance, sleeping on some sandman shit(c’mon)
Like damn man! wake up, as we bring the action
Don’t be standing like a grand-slam hit(c’mon)
for the whole fam flippin’ on the handstand tip(c’mon)
We get the dough weight up, straight up, the wham-bamm hits,
before we go-go, we gettin’ on some damn-wham shit,
a-gainst, as for second hand brand kicks.
Rippin’ from the Beatdown to San Fran-sis to Japan land,
it’s the br-and new, we can’t can’t, movin’ like the trans am
do-do, don’t stop we can’t can’t quit, we can’t-can’t…

You can see my Black Thought, like ‘Riq Trotter…

OMP vs Common

I usually only review shit that I like, or would like. And this album is one of the best out this year.
