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.
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.
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”.
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.

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?
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.

If your love was unconditional then you would let me be.
Got a problem with the things I do? Then you should prolly leave.
Entrapped within your view of life and your philosophy
and I can’t stick around to deal with all this pain and grief.
I’m just tryna chill and vibe in hammocks by Miami beach
but your soul is Atomik. I don’t think we’d ever reach a little peace.
We’ll never reach peace.

Today on #GullyClassix I’m presenting one of my favorite tracks from the Dipset era. This beat is ridiculous and the energy everybody brings to it is what keeps me coming back after more than a decade. Ya digggggggg?
