ships out within 1 day
From my heartbeat into my soul,
Melodies, tellin’ me, this is my home,
And I’m way up when I’m high,
I have to stay up ‘til I die.
It’s one in mornin’, I’m in here recordin’ and some of you wonderin’ why?
Well, I can’t explain it,
Almost like my soul’s emaciated,
A hunger that can’t be satiated by design,
These rhymes write themselves: an outpouring’ of my mind,
Like a first dance, or first glance every time,
My worst jams still speak to me in every line,
Whatever the circumstance, these beats help me define,
Music’s like my therapy, no need to shrink my mind.
Fell in love ‘fore I could talk,
Trippin’ the light fantastic ‘fore I even learned to walk.
Fiendin’ like a fanatic, treatin’ it like a romantic, have to have it or my heart could stop.
So bring me that drop, make sure it’s hot, and forget the clock.
Whether it’s four hours or five minutes,
I’ll take what’s given and try to stretch the limit.
Only really livin’ when I’m sittin’ givin’ listen,
Music gives me vision and I’ll take every chance I get to live it.
Whether it’s Beethoven or ‘Hov,
Double bass or the Rhodes,
Every note another treasure trove of gold,
Seven fold, follow the metronome,
Piano licks like yellow bricks, alway stretchin’ home
Get me mellow quick, like when Othello flips.
Monticello’s bricks to a modern day Sage,
Donatello’s hits to a scholar of his ways,
Always pumpin’ through my veins, nonstop, nah, nah,
Man I swear we got this game on lock, on lock,
No way I’m not the same, I’m hot, na na,
Don’t you ever try to say I’m not, I’m not.
Draw inspiration from the greatest,
If I’m not on top, I didn’t make it.
Famous is when I’m engraved
Next to the best, to heck with the rest,
This music moves me passionately,
Can’t settle for adequacy,
Good enough is only good enough
If good enough could erupt.
If music is the universal language, allow me to interrupt:
I’m the next one up.
