Feeling Down | Art by @Kaffeinepaints Captured by @Jacmoo

I’ve been feeling kinda down.
It might be cuz I’m getting older.
Haven’t done the things I wanted and I’m scared to lose control of all the dreams stuck in my head for an eternity. Instead,
I’ve been focused on the cream.
On the money.
On the bread.
All I need’s a little cheese to get my mama out her head and ahead.
So everything I make I invest.
I can’t wait for someone else to lay me off or promote me.
I’ma grind all on my own until I reach prosperity.
– Daniel Steez

[Gully Classix] Cam’ron – D Rugs

Today on #GullyClassix we’re featuring Cam’ron’s “D Rugs” which takes the listener on a journey through the protagonist’s experience with his mother being a drug abuser and his own experience as a dealer. In the end both the drug abuser and the dealer meet with unsavory results. From a technical standpoint the way Cam flipped the concept of drugs and gave “him” the name D Rugs was pretty genius.

[DOPE or NAH?] ScHoolboy Q – CHopstix ft. Travis Scott

ScHoolboy Q released a visual for “CHopstix” featuring Travis Scott and it’s pretty creative. They thought outside the box for this one as it features Travis Scott acting as a band conductor, ScHoolboy Q as a magician, and a score of ballerina dancers in the background. What do you think? DOPE or NAH?

Acidic | Artwork by @StevetheBum

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.
– Daniel Steez

Direct inspiration for the poem came from this trippy artwork by #GullySteez contributor @Stevethebum.
