Track Name: The Hussle
THE HUSSLE…



(chorus)
Blvd breaks the back of the hardest
The ones who stand back and watch are the smartest
‘Lest ur tested and fail its regardless
dope make a man turn heartless…

Swift gaze, parlayed the shade and played the day softly, walked through the fire, exposed the wire, tailed an informant, back to a sergeant, a precinct-orphan, often defiant, a roost for the client, remanded compliant, a snitch for the system, they dissed him a kiss when they list him for death, an expendable measure. Stretched out the length of duration the stay at the station changed his view for the time he was facing, ace in the lions-den pacing, thoughts of the rats racing to sleaze the cheese he desperately needed, wished he was weeded to forget the reason, gaffled his frame on the block like they traced him, new his position, moved with precision, locked and honed in and cornered the goner was bass’n, the smoke he was wasting was wasting his frame as his waist was just dwindling, commence to fiddling and cue the soprano, alto, although he knew just a little, bargained away what the did to the heat lamp sizzle, sweat-bead drizzle, caught in the middle of the struggle, lesson to the rest in the hustle…

street lights go dim, figures in the dark, slim chance to romance the spark, made slaves of the ones drawn close to the flame, held the same regards to the game as the hustlers fame…in the shadow cast light to the plight grind straight through the nite, make valuable sales worth the flight… more or less and all too often, the luck ones end up in a coffin, blinded by the light at the crossin and seen by his enemies flossing, a kite flew and blew the killers through the green light from the boss when, there was fear in the ranks of his rising, the henchmen surprised him, rise when he least hat expected, collected his pack that connected his ties to the lies circulated of his lofty ambitions and his hatred, they stated his visions to take down the kingpin, war began with the words from the fake men he surrounded himself with and was mistaken, there allegiance was only to the grievance for his death so the next in line could replace him…,

Touchin down in yo town

Ought the like transpire
Wrought and smite In fire
Prophesized go higher
Chose the name the flyer
Rose to fame in dyer
Days got blazed like I-yah
Rose the flame in pyre
Chose the same the prior
Grab the mic like pliers
Burn the track like tires

But everybody know me
When nobody knows me
When everybody’s phony

SAID I MISS YOU LESS
SAID I’M MISSION LESS
BUT I’M MISSIN THIS
IS U AND I WITHIN
Track Name: Static
Static


She utters some words, they’re beautifully tragic
She lives in her head; she’s up in the attic
It’s clouded by cobwebs, the radio play static
She’s out on the stage, the scene is dramatic

She live in a world haphazardly fallen
to pieces the least is she crying and bawling
her life is a puzzle the pieces are missing
her crying is muffled the well is for wishing
She’s workin’ her magic, she’s twitchin’ her digits
she climbing the walls she nervously fidgets
She puts on the water she standing and dreaming
she visits the altar the kettle is screaming

Movement of shadows crawl on the wall
The room is consumed curtains they fall
Air is so stifled the window so tall
The moon is a voyeur footsteps down the hall
Opening nite time i hope it’s her right mind
She travel dimension she walkin a fine line
She lookin confused her memories stolen
She’s always amused a new scene unfolding


Air is so stifled
The windows so tall
The moon is a voyeur
Footsteps down the hall
Movement of shadows
Crawl on the wall
The room is consumed
Curtains they fall
Track Name: Suicide
outside suicide
someone left
checked out
no hope
pressure burst-
now he's with the stars

hopefully the angels saw him home cause now he's gone
left behind a state of mind that shocked us all, he said-

(mama, this ain't no for me
and they cant see
the pain i worn,
little child,
exiled,
feeling scorn,
out of place,
in a haste,
toe to toe,
face to face,
with his fate,
lost his faith,
now he's with the stars... )
