about

My excursions continue. I’ve gotten lost in the unknown and discovered a plethora of attributes about myself I didn’t know exists. To exist. Existence. It’s clear, that learning and self-discovery is a life-long process. And to think, I once thought I knew it all. But once I slowed down, I realized that I knew little. Instead, I had understanding. I had questions. What would life be like without the pursuit of answers? When you stop asking questions, you stop living – you stop dreaming. My excursions are my attempts to live out my dreams, to the best of my ability. And hip-hop will forever be my soundtrack. Travel with me.

Track Name: Nah I'm Good
Verse 1

Hey bruh
Light your Edison
The plight of better men
A true veteran
Not known for settling
Always strive for
The best I'm alive for
Open my eyes more
Climb till my arms sore
Until my encore
Until finito
Do this for my people
Always giving it lethal
Cause most of these cats deceitful
Lying to get their funds up
Time to lay the mic down son
Your fun's up
It's over
Time to make the game sober
And get that king cobra
Out of your system
Extraction
Eliminate distractions
Mental attractions
Reducing your infractions
In a ScholarMan fashion
Understand my styling
I speak volumes
Like I'm living on island
Man, I'm so isolated
Better yet a lone wolf
The Alpha
That the Omega keeps in her long book

Hook

(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
With no pain its no pleasure

Verse 2

So many onlook
So many like to watch
I send you home shook
Like I shocked the block
I'm the shot to block
Before the counters out
I'm a keep moving on
They ain't going count us out
Quiet
But I'm bound to shot
Like a burst of flames
Grown man
Ain't got no time for the childish games
Walk in an aisle of fame?
I rather stand in truth
They say all lives matter
I'm demanding proof
For folks that look like you
For folks that look like me
An even playing field
That's what it’s supposed to be
Wishful thinking
Why most of us end up drinking
Too many captains
So all of us end up sinking

Hook

(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
With no pain it’s no pleasure

Verse 3

Crabs in a barrel
Many cars
But lane narrow
Bottleneck
Respect
Giving in thorough
Peace to super heroes
I’m talking to black fathers
If you can’t be consistent, don’t even bother
Live and breathe it
Want it
And then achieve it
Best believe it
I see it
I’m going seize it
Pretty thing, I please it
Give me the reasons
Dealing with foreign emotions
In different seasons
Jesus
Man, I'm just conversing now
I came a long way
Wasn't a perfect child
Learned to be versatile
But rarely wear a smile
Cause it wasn't in style
To show your pearly whites
Instead mean mugging
Ice grill and thugging
No loving at home
Moms was bugging
But we better
The storms we seem to weather
She raised a go getter
So hip hop I'm gone get her

Hook

(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
(But doesn’t it hurt)
Nah, I’m good
With no pain it’s no pleasure
Track Name: Desires
That’s right
That’s right
That’s right

Verse 1

I do this for the collective
Trying to modify perspectives
Cause we selective
The fam that I connect with
The time that I invest with
For outcomes majestic
I speak to the Lord over beats
And then finesse it
Like a hieroglyphic message
Only few can ingest it
Others get congested
Nonsense they digested
I'm not regular
Not your normal competitor
Like alien vs predator
Raw without the editor
Uncut
The grind to come up
I'm like who the master
Me, show ‘nuff
Poker face your bluff
Enough with all of your games
I'm all about gains
Ain't got no time for you lames
No time to complain
The stress had me insane
So I, refrained
And focused on other things
Like my, daughter and dames
These beats that I arranged
These places in my range
To travel to, to sustain
All of my visions
Calculated decisions
Calibrated incisions
Elevated conditions
A new playing field
What I'm saying real
Cause I came to build
Respect like Dangerfield

Transition

Where the love go (x8)

Verse 2

Cause I wished for a better life
For a better wife
And then it came to me
Living in the moments nice
Grass ain't always greener
Other chick might be meaner
But watch your life go downhill
When you get between her
Thighs I like to spread ‘em
But most of these chicks are venom
So I can't get with ‘em
The others
I can't forget ‘em
And to the next one I meet
I'm hoping she the one
So we can gaze at the sun
And contemplate a son
But maybe not
Maybe now is all I got
Fuck it, take it and rock
Maneuver to the top, and
Claim my spot and
Promote my positon
And be thankful for these lyrics
I provisioned
Man listen

Transition

Where the love go (x8)

Verse 3

So now I'm plane hopping
Movement, nobody stopping
Whether for profit or not
I’m gone rock it - like
Stone age
The back or the first page
Since first grade
A dreamer, no matter age
Never could fit in the box
So many live in
Never was willing
To sell myself just to get in
Never name drop
Just to get the famed spot
Operate on my own merits in the same arts

Transition

Where the love go (x8)
Track Name: Love!
Talking ‘bout...
Talking ‘bout...
We all talking ‘bout...
It takes, it takes…

Verse 1

I like how she move under candlelight
We every step she enticing my appetite
A deep hunger
Love I need from her
So many years my needs asleep
Slumber
Intrigued
And I’m hoping for the last kiss
Fuel to the flame
Nothing can match this
She the actress
And I’m the main script
No need for understudy
She my main chick
Remain fit
Engage hips
Embrace tits
Lick her until she glow
Get her face lit
The basics
But at times so complex
Together we take nothing out of context

Hook (x2)

(Love!)
So many want it
Can’t handle it
(Love!)
They take it apart
Dismantle it
(Love!)
Inspect it
Expect it, when not ready
(Love!)
Looking to sail when waters not steady

I’m talking ‘bout...
It takes...
(Time!)

Verse 2

Sometimes you gotta wait till the waves calm
When that bitterness, hate, anger and pain gone
Stay in your lay – strong
Follow your own path
Her and I together
We do our own math
In our own class
We do our own dance
Slow grind in the corner
A true romance
These moments in time
These minutes
Makes me glad she’s mine
Her image
Is what I look to
What inspires me
One of the reasons I grind like this entirely
The entire me
Appreciates all of her
The reason for the track
Just to honor her

Love!
Yeah, yeah, I’m talking ‘bout…
(Love!)
Yep, yep, yeah, it takes…
(Time!)

Hook (x2)

(Love!)
So many want it
Can’t handle it
(Love!)
They take it apart
Dismantle it
(Love!)
Inspect it
Expect it, when not ready
(Love!)
Looking to sail when waters not steady

I’m talking ‘bout...
It takes...
(Time!)
Track Name: My Life
Opening dialog

Verse 1

Sometimes
I gotta dig for a smile
Bring it out once in a while
Put it on top of the pile
All of my
Worries, concerns
New things that I’ve learned
To get it you got give
Great things in return
Cause and react
Keep my mental in tact
A pivotal fact
Very Integral acts
All for, common agenda
My comments they might offend ya
Ego injure
Shatter your tenure
I do what’s necessary
Sometimes a true challenge
By any means I gotta create some balance
And walk on solid ground
Presenting a solid sound
Been doing this long before I was college bound

Hook

Man I’m love my life, learning what real loving is like (x2)
(Maintain, remain in the game)
Learning what real loving is like
(Maintain, remain in the game)
Learning what real loving is like

Verse 2

I’m talking about
Reaching new heights
To places beyond sight
Can’t even see it in flight
But you can feel like goosebumps
The blood in your veins
It’s one in the same
I want that feeling sustained
So I try not complain
Just accept the rain
Accept the change
It’s essential to gain
A critical thing
Exchange
To loving your life
Trusting your struggle
And knowing its right
And knowing is faith
And faith takes patience
In the meantime
Grind and innovations
Creations from the depth of my soul
The rest will unfold
And then a new story is told
Let’s go

Hook

Man I’m love my life, learning what real loving is like (x2)
(Maintain, remain in the game)
Learning what real loving is like
(Maintain, remain in the game)
Learning what real loving is like
Track Name: Right There
Right there
Right there
Right there
Right there

Verse 1

She thinking
Contemplating what makes me tick
Other times, cussing me out
I make her sick
And then i make her squirm
I make her body yearn
I make her mind, suspend in time
New things we learn
She like an open book
And this my study session
Regardless indiscretions
Underlying every section
Every chapter, paragraph
Page number
A page from her
Only good things can come of
Of her and i
Together in this classroom
If this my last tune
I want it for her vast womb
For her big heart
And for her patience
I want to dive in her soul
Cause it’s spacious

Hook

She was right there listening
Right there with me
Wherever I go
She coming with me

She was right there grinding
On my mind, and
When i lost little hope
She help me find it

Verse 2

She wondering
Yes she still deep in
Her thoughts, like what the fuck is he thinking
Damn, I guess I need to open up
Share what’s on my chest
Instead of closing up
These tracks been close enough
For the longest time
But what if she don't listen to ‘em
How will I share my mind?
Express my thoughts
Love for her being here
Inspired by this human being, that’s being near
And being true, in her attempts to give me all of her
When everybody bailed
I could call on her
Right there listening
Right with me
Wherever I go
She coming with me

Hook

She was right there listening
Right there with me
Wherever I go
She coming with me

She was right there grinding
On my mind, and
When i lost little hope
She help me find it
