Music: vernacular of the soul


Tuesday, March 4, 2008

rhymes revisited-mama said knock you out

to me words are fundamental
integral part of my life
necessary like breathing

Slims love is his music
poetry be my wife
and every night we be freakin

offspring be my flow
the things that i write
Conceived in my mind
gave birth to by night
enter into a world of
happiness, plight
got my
pen and paper seething

cuz they tired i won't put them down
but aint yet found a reason
like a scribe, scrolls filled with words
millions for every season
lines that have souls bleeding
words that call hearts into beating
like drums in subsaharan Africa
ancestors and descendants meeting

like damn it just feels right
like fuck, this is so good
like shit feels virgin tight
like damn that girl's so hood

She headed from the hood to the highrise tho
won't forget her people
cuz it dont make sense to forget the past to get where u tryna go
cuz you and them are equals

cuz like the saying goes
you'll be doomed to repeat it
and ur words will be like shit
soon you'll be forced to eat it
ima leave you with that thought
let it sit in your mind then reread it
cuz your girl
she on her throne
and even with your best
wont be de-seated

see the
only things i pimp are the lines that i pen
like posthumous musings of greats come back to write again
and like headless horsemen come back to ride again got folk afraid to step out of
words that defy laws of science take u back in time to when
scribes wrote on papyrus and linen skirts were rocked by men
before the Rosetta stone unlocked secrets of the dead
steal my words
curse of Tutankhamun upon your head
so i'll
do like Hatshepsut sport the beard, take to the throne
pharoah headress like its the last set and i'm takin shit home
unsolved mystery
don't know
maybe built by alien drones
or maybe she conjured the pyramids
while rockin the microphone

you hear that beep son ?
it aint no motherfuckin test
thats his heart goin into cardiac arrest swore he was invincible so could aways
....beat the best,
walked the streets at night but said in death he'd get his rest
now here he rests
or should i say his body
cuz his soul is still troubled left behind his brother Robby, middle name be 'rob me', always the life of the party and
til day light hours little man be partyin
track lines on his arm covered by his cardigan, seen Juvy four times don't know when he'll see his dad again
and when he'll meet the man again
cuz the last time he set his eyes on him, they was cartin dad away
coulda sworn blue demons took him or at four thats wat he'd say
screamin 'leave my daddy be' 'why yall takin him away?'
seems we've come full circle ,prophecy fulfilled
they say the sins of the father be on his son's head
curse revisited so .....
three generations dead

i aint want no drama
tried to keep things copacetic
but u stay spoutin shit like u poppin diuretics
and ina bout in minute they gon need to call a medic
cuz i deliver verbal death
do it multiple times over
like pushin out them septuplets
on the
fifth of October
and when i step in the spot
aint no need to think it ova
cuz i come with it, take a line and run with it
bodies laid out like used condoms
so you know i'm done with it and for sure i'm done with you
take it back to elementary school, i'm rubber, man ur glue
stay with dry lines like burnt toast
rhyme book u need to toss it
i come with the best so i
...a1 steak sauce it

i transform your believers into heretics
convert them to my disciples cuz i sit
wisdom falling like blessings, tsunami sort wrecking
so they can't seem to get enough of what they know as me
sent down to givem free
and release them from deceit. they talk of
ties that bind
urs be the
lies that bind
smoke and mirrors, desert mirages, your fallacies akin to crime
and you know Hammarabi's code demands an .....eye for an eye,
tooth for a tooth
so i guess you'll walk out this ring blind, most of your teeth knocked loose
best be careful
Kadhimiya, head inside that noose
Hussein on Eid ul-Adha
demise up to you
so choose
