Shout:

Our minds are going crazy but our mouths are always shut.
We wanna shout and scream but we don’t think we strong enough.
Tell me, why are we always so blinded by the fluff?
By the TV and the headlines on the phones that we all love?

I guess we’ll never know. And I guess we’ll never learn.
I guess we’ll all stay shut until our souls are old and burnt.
I guess I wanna say that I’m evolving but I’m not
cuz I’m binge watching on Netflix and I know six different plots.
– @Daniel.Steez

I know the theme of the artwork doesn’t fit the topic of the words that it inspired but I can’t help what the universe decides to throw at me in the form of inspiration.

Amazing artwork by @caro.pepe & @ageage_bln for @upfest.

#DOPEorNAH? @VelTheWonder – Transit Kid

Vel The Wonder has always been a bright spot for the culture and someone to champion for purists as she paves her own road with a lyrical, boom-bap aesthetic in a landscape that gravitates toward trap beats more than anything else. Her latest effort is a visual for a track entitled “Transit Kid”.

Listen to this and more of our new favorites on the DOPEorNAH.com Spotify Playlist.
What do you think … DOPE or NAH?

Reminiscent:

Back when I was younger things were simple. Life was easy.
Tryna be Alfalfa.
Tryna emulate the TV.
I ain’t have no problems, had no bills, tummy filled.
Watched cartoons till I went to Uncle Phil’s.
I was free in youth and free in life until I grew
and now I’m prospering but wondering how I misused
my time to not be at a level that I want. In truth
I know I need to keep on working without much excuse.
– Daniel Steez

#DOPEorNAH? Ski Mask The Slump God – Faucet Failure (Dir. by @_ColeBennett_)

Ski Mask The Slump God recently released a Cole Bennett directed visual for “Faucet Failure”, one of the more popular cuts off Stokeley. What do you think … DOPE or NAH?

#DOPEorNAH? Tyga – Thotiana Freestyle

Tyga visited the L.A. Leakers to drop a freestyle to “Thotiana” which throws a few shots back to Soulja Boy who recently dissed him on a track. It’ll be somewhat interesting to see how their most recent feud plays out. However, in terms of strict lyrical talent this seems like it would be a one-sided affair. What do you think … DOPE or NAH?

Hide & Seek:

You said to close my eyes.
You said we’re playing hide and seek and then you never reappeared in life and honestly
I hope you’re doing good.
I hope you’re doing well.
I hope your conscious doesn’t eat you up behind that cell.
I hope life’s in perspective.
I hope you found direction.
I hope that you forgave yourself for all your past offenses.
I know that you don’t wanna hear that I became a peer
so I’ll save you the trouble and I’ll make it out of here.
– @Daniel.Steez
