@whitesaid And another one, if J-Live is putting something on wax you know it is essential. Whole song is marvelous; 2nd verse magnificent.

Make the 7” happen, folks, improve your standard of listening. Favorite track: Straight Like That.

Faheem Lea Master teaching over 🔥 beats is what Hip Hop is; speak to your soul through that method is what J-Live does. Salute warrior!

"Stay present, the future is to be written/heed these words, and don't just say, Oooh he spittin'/play it on repeat, because who we kiddin'?/we all need occasional reminders to stop bullsh*ttin'!" Favorite track: Straight Like That.

I got no time for whiners and complainers. Wolf ticket sellers ear hustle campaigners. I'm in the underground cause that's where the treasure is Comparing my pie to your slice won't really measure this Accurately. So speak correctly. Those who select me. Been around and stay around 'cause they still respect me. Allah protect me. Specifically my brothers I Reciprocate like 7 over seven vs any others. If we at odds you wouldn't even see it coming on some Creed shit if you need to bleed it could be any of us. Type of folk you ain't talk to in a lifetime but Hours turn years to days like what is time? To be or not to be today for the victims of the Grind be it freak accident chronic health or maybe crime. Allegedly I know the ledge and wise the dome to stand Under an agreement. So wherever I roam is home. It's a dirty job but someone gotta do it. I Want my fluidity to flow like fluid. Cause Me and affluent were too incongruent. The Money talk different so I had to get fluent. Leading the new school and I never been truant A hard knocks graduate I really been through it Pursuant to PMA my spirit wasn't ruined Pursuing my goals 'til the gold caught up to it. Remain bold but stay modest. Trust the process Chart the progress. The growth isn't always Obvious. Be oblivious to the nonsense. Past is prologue not a table of contents. Stay present the future is to be written. Heed These words and don't just say wooo he spittin'. Play it On repeat because who we kidding. We all Need occasional reminders to stop bullshittin'. All this talent off the Rack lemmie pull a quick style off the shelf. What's Stopping me not even myself... Off the Rip got it sewn so quick. Peep game reap Game on tilt. Head and shoulders on stilt. Walking Tall like a movie title. All signs vital. Optimum from the ital. My wave is on Tidal... All of them DSPs. But they don't Get the whole thing like ETFs. I can Do it for the exposure and love but you gon' have to Pay me for my time opportunity and culture. See? I use a funnel like a El Chapo tunnel you can Call it escapism. But never sellin' these lessons for You to escape prison. I'm passin' these blessings same Way that I received'em. Free of charge. Mind the Wealth gap. Watch us hop right over that. No more Fighting over stacks. Mr. Crab. Barrels’ never been your Natural habitat. When we pull each other up? Then we Outa here straight like that...
