about

A powerful voice and a more powerful spirit. Pruven is an writer who is honest to tell you his flaws as well as his failures while giving listeners reflective concepts to enhance themselves. In his lyrics you can hear his spirituality without coming across preachy or overwhelming. Growing up Pruven was influenced by his family, religion, sports and by the various foster brothers and sisters that he grew up with. As a artist, he gives the listener a chance to walk, crawl or sprint into his mind and heart. You can tell he writes from experience and desires to inform people of the dualities of righteousness and evil. His production matching his delivery to the "T". You have to have a ear to listen to his music and follow his words. Which evolve around the natural states and emotions of man. Doubt, Love, Courage, Rage, & Harmony. -Jesse Dunn (V.F.C.C. radio)

Track Name: Pennies
Lyrics Verse 1 Pretty gritty stare Donate hype and clear out chapels The glare of his voice box brings rust upon shrapnel Make listeners aware of your power Nastier than rabies influenced Rottweiler Blur behind blind curve beef no concern Concern chief weed to burn you want the mic it's not your turn In 1970, Doc Ellis pitched a no hitter on LSD For the Pittsburgh Pirates of the Major League Baseball; Irrelevant still depict and rip lessons Spontaneous and continuous obliteration All well what the hell In the dream well goals sunk fell downwards you rise and won't prevail Chisel bones In the catacomb of chrome where clones con concepts Create my speech and slay all my targets Hip hop's my ball, I handle like O.J. Mayo Write slay mental demons and eternally grow Sapphire thoughts paragraph's ruby silver speech gold tongue painting scholarly Chorus It's like another day Another penny Always hopeful keeping God motivation in me Is it truly you in these songs that you making Or are you a shy clone just emulating What you see and hear containing all types of fear I sprint the path of victory still see clear The vision lack nothing manifest substance Lack substance and manifest nothing Verse II Another day's work Another hard day memorizing my research Enlightenment of terror Razor scrape mascara Ideas thorough elite plus clever This that dark highway back road riding music use it Witness vicious thieves sending pitch forks through halos Spiritual chaotic woes I keep black ice under toes Spot babies left on highways for abortions Think better to live better it's important My Asian re-up came to my house tonight He said I had no life Said all I do is stay home record, read and write Dining room covered with manuscripts Documents flow pain & love in abundance The devil I wrap your neck around the noose kick the chair from under you your neck will break in two Chorus It's like another day Another penny Always hopeful keeping God motivation in me Is it truly you in these songs that you making Or are you a shy clone just emulating What you see and hear containing all types of fear I sprint the path of victory still see clear The vision lack nothing manifest substance Lack substance and manifest nothing
Track Name: Lahib Nouman
IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

EXPLAIN TERROR OF A BRUTE FORCE

A WOMAN WALKS BACK AND THEN FORTH

EMOTIONS ERUPT TEARS FLUSH

HANDS WIPING EYES FROM MEMORIES HER MIND TOUCH

TRAGEDY SUCKS

SHE WANTED JUSTICE IN CORRUPTED REALMS OF INJUSTICE

BAGHDAD HOME COVERED IN FILTH

SHE WRITES HER LIFE ON WALLS OF ROOMS WITH A MAROON LIPSTICK

IN ARABIC AND FRENCH

WHAT THIS? LAHIB NOUMAN

AN ASSYRIAN LIVING IN BAGHDAD

RAISED CATHOLIC, 13 SIBLINGS, MOM AND DAD

SHE EARNED A LAW DEGREE FROM BAGHDAD UNIVERSITY

DRIVEN IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY.

THEN IT ALL SLIPPED, VEINS OF JOY RIPPED

WHILE PURSUING HER DOCTOR'S DEGREE A CAR ACCIDENT BROKE HER HIP.

HER SHOULDER GOT A CHIP BUT SHE RECOVERED

NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU DOING LAW CASES PRO BONO

HELPING THE LOCALS WITH A PURE SOUL IN THE WARZONE

BAGHDAD!

INSTEAD OF BEING REWARDED

SHE WAS CHASTISED, TORTURED, BEATEN THEN EXTORTED

BECAUSE SHE TOOK ON A CIVIL CASE

THINGS WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME

GAINED A LOSS OF FREEDOM STAINED WITH BLOOD

TWO DECADES OF HEARTACHE AND SHAME. EXPLAIN-

THE MAN IN COURT WHO LAHIB DEFENDED

WENT AGAINST SADDAM HUSSEIN'S HATEFUL AGENDA

RELATE TO HATE DARKER THAN SPACE

AND FACE A GREATER COURAGE EVEN HARDER TO TRACE

IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

LAHIB STOOD AGAINST SADDAM HUSSEIN'S OLDEST SON

UDAY, BORN OUT OF INCEST AND MURDERED FOR FUN

IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

SHE DEFENDED A MAN WHO WOULD NOT LET A DRUNK WHORE

IN HIS OWN HOTEL STORE

BUT THAT BROAD HAPPENED TO BE UDAY HUSSEIN'S WHORE

SHE WENT BACK AND TOLD

HAD THE MAN FRAMED, TORTURED AND TORN

CHARGED WITH ROBBERY

BUT LAHIB CONVINCED THE JURY

THE ACCUSATIONS FALSE YOU SEE

SHE WON THE CASE AND LAWFULLY HOPED TO BE RECEIVED.

UDAY HAD THE CASE OVERTHROWN

HE WAS A ASSHOLE WITH HIS NOSE IN A MOUNTAIN OF YAYO

BULLET VEST ACROSS CHESS LIKE RAMBO

POPS WAS THE EMPEROR, HE DID WHAT HE WANTED

BELLY-DANCERS, CARS, POWER, CIGARS IMPORTED

A CORRUPTED DUDE EVEN KILLED PEOPLE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

NEVER CARED ABOUT THE COMMON PEOPLE

LAHIB,

STOOD BOLD, AND STRONG AND DIDN'T CARE

FOUGHT TYRANNY BUT HER LAW DEGREE DIDN'T MATTER OVER THERE

HOPE TARES!

THEY CALLED HE INSANE FOR GOING AGAINST THE HUSSEINS

NOW THEY ALL SAY YOU CUT YOUR OWN LIFE VEIN

AND SELFISHLY BY HER FAMILY SHE WAS ABANDONED

THEY FEARED FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY AND LEFT HER STRANDED

WHERE DICTATORS TRAMPLED

LEFT HER SOUL AND FREEDOM MANGLED

HELL, UDAY HAD HER THROWN IN JAIL

WHERE SHE LACKED A REASON FOR BREATHING CHARGED WITH TREASON

BEATEN TREATED LESS THAN A HUMAN BEING

STILL, SHE BELIEVED IN HOPE NEVER LET GO

HER SPIRIT IS MADE OF GOLD

IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

SHE HELD TRANQUILITY WRITING AWAY HER LIFE MISERY ON WALLS FOR ALL TO SEE

RELEASING THE PAIN

SO THE FUTURE CHILDREN COULD GAIN

BUT SHE EMBRACED NO LOVE

PRISON GUARDS MADE HER SIT ON BEER BOTTLES TILL IT FILLED UP WITH BLOOD

SHOCK THERAPY TREATMENTS

FROM ABOVE SOMEONE GAVE HER COURAGE WE DREAM OF

SHE WAS JAILED, RELEASED, JAILED, RELEASED

BUT NOT IGNORED

SHE WOULD GET OUT AND RIP DOWN HUSSEIN PICTURES IN STORES

PROTESTED AND BEATEN MORE

HER BONES WORE BRUISES WITH HER HALO WORN OUT BUT STILL GOOD UNDERSTOOD

SPITTING IN THE FACE OF INJUSTICE

HAD HER LIFE SNATCHED AND CORRUPTED

TAKING EACH FIST LIKE, "IS THAT THE BEST SHE CAN DO?"

TAKING EACH RAPE LIKE, "MY BODY WILL NEVER BELONG TO YOU"

THEN 2003 U.S. FORCES SET HER FREE

TORE DOWN THE MENTAL ASYLUM WHICH HELD HER IN CAPTIVITY

SHE FLED TO HER AL-GHADEER HOME

NOW ONLY HER WALLS MOAN

WRITING AWAY HER PAST PAIN WISHING TO BE LEFT ALONE

TRYING TO GET HER SOUL TO BECOME WHOLE

SADDAM' REGIME HAS ENDED NOW

SHE LIVING ON THE UPWARD BOUND

THE AMERICANS KILLED UDAY BUT HE GAVE SO MUCH PAIN NEVER TO FORGET

AND TO THIS DAY

UDAY AND LAHIB NEVER PERSONALLY MET

BRIGHT SUNSETS

SADDAM COULD HAVE BURIED THE SITUATION

BUT THE FAMILY'S MERCY GENE TOOK A PERMANENT VACATION

LAHIB WANTS TO BE FREE AND SMILE

AND IN THE NEXT LIFE LET UDAY KNOW "YOU TRIED TO STOP ME

& COULDN'T WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW!"

SHE FREE

AND IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

SHE FOUND HOPE

DROPPED THE PEN FROM HER SUICIDE NOTE

IN THAT MOMENT OF CLARITY

SHE FOUND GOD AND EMBRACED THE ALMIGHTY

WRITING HER LIFE AWAY

WRITING HER LIFE AWAY

WRITING HER LIFE AWAY



SO WE COULD GAIN!!
