lyrics

Peace to all artist just getting started
And them what stuck to their guns for the long run
and never bought in to the stereo hype bunkum
Heads that still think before they verbalise the ink and Spit Never swallow the bullshit metered out by the media clowns up on the pulpit. Hold it
Before I swallow that mixture
You better tell me what’s in it
not an optimist nor cynic I’m a realist
Wait a minute
There’s kids buying the myth of get rich or die trying
The prisons are full, the drug trade is thriving
The emperor wears no clothes but has the biggest crib
Fill a bank vault with gold and that’s where loneliness lives.
I told you once I told you twice
Tell em again
Remember the words smak daddi told me Way back when
Fashion come and go so follow no trend 99% style 1% content
So be yourself
Little man rise up against that macho faction
The natural fact is I cant get no satisfaction
Never ending trend reducing women to receptacles
Bit parts penned by men with no lead in their pencil
One dimensional characters that don’t hold water
And Its shaping the future for my nieces and god daughters
I got a wife, mother, sister and a crew of females who inspire me to be a better man
For that I’m grateful
I told you once I told you twice
Tell em again
Remember the words smak daddi told me Way back when
Fashion come and go so follow no trend 99% style 1% content
So be yourself
My TV screens are awash with identikit rappers
Outside of the box its a book of many chapters
Real hip hop happens every second of every day
In back rooms and street corners and it aint getting paid and when it does
The green often poisons the well
The moneyman cant create he replicates what sells.
Takes the raw elements and polish em so smooth
That it looks and sounds the same
Now I can’t move for rappers saying rappers all sound the same Now I sound the same as rappers saying rappers all sound the same
Its all a cycle its all in the game.
So I don't get heavy hearted I remember where I started and I carry on regardless of the market
Remember that home is where the heart is
Water the family tree
Hold your true friends the hardest Just be yourself
i said peace to all artists
