I once took a tab of acid and tapped into different planets.
Met a dog that came from NASA. And a bird from Alabama sang me blues and Country Grammar as I held on to a flower.
I was holding on for dear life as my brain cells got devoured till I realized I’m the master of my mind and I have power so I started meditating for what seemed like endless hours
till I reached a peace of mind that only patience can acquire.

We all live our own versions of hell.
We only differ in the way we play the hands that we’re dealt.
We succumb or we rise.
We topple or grind.
We should never live in fear from what resides in our mind.
I find you seek the truth in every line you put to your nose.
You tell yourself that things are changing while you unroll the note
but everytime things start a-flaming you go back down that road.
I don’t know what else to tell ya I ain’t tell ya befo’. You always say that you’re just going through hell
but the hell you put your mama through is unparalleled.

Please put us on to the artists and show the photographer some love!
It seems like Tech N9ne has gone through some drama in the past about being placed higher on the bill than other acts and they’ve caused scenes about it. Most notably, Tech names Rakim as one of these salty artists and airs out about being a better performer than all of them.
