Track Thirteen, Verse Two, The Minstrel Show

Uhh, (whoo)
Ain’t no need in gettin’ teary eyed
Tay’s the illest, point blank period
Plus I got niggas, in DC
That’ll hit you for 3G’s and a box of Yum’s carry out
Outlook lookin’ scary now
They was frontin’ before but now they seein’ that we serious
This ain’t a peace talk, so muhfucka save your sweet (suite) talk
For reservations at the Marriott
They say birds of a feather often flock together
But me and Big Pooh rock together
And if not forever
I’mma reach to the sky, and keep flyin’ high like we got propellers
‘Goddamn, y’all boys doin’ it’, they stop to tell us
And if God propel us to the top, I won’t go pop
No need to act a fool in public
‘Cause when you, ego trip you just lose your luggage and well…
I ain’t got no time top play with ‘cha
I’m Phonte, international stage ripper done
Made friends and made figgas
while you stuck on the front porch
Mad, like you fixin’ ta shave Mister
That’s reality, so color me purple
My name in history, nigga that’s what I work for
Better keep it moving like the laws of inertia
Before these Carolina boys come hurt ‘cha
better tell ’em bout it…

Respect my standards…

They could have chosen ANY other city, but they chose Toronto. Today they’re new album drops. And tonight they’ll be performing here. Instead of in the states, which, of course is incredible. I don’t mean to offend, but hip-hop shows are scarce up here. Nevermind an album release coinciding with a tour stop. I have every album (and chitlin circuits) so I guess you can call me a fan. Oh and don’t get it twisted, the album review is being written on my paper as you’ve read this.

Blow the smoke out…

When you’ve had/are having a great weekend, sometimes a theme song materializes. What you see was this weekend’s in my world.
