about

With a sound that can best be described as quintessential hip hop Pruven delivers thought provoking razor sharp lyrics that just might cause folks to stop nodding their heads long enough to write an email to their Congressman. The CT/NY based emcee brings a soulful respect of hip hop's heyday to the present scene, leaving listeners wondering why they haven't been listening to Pruven for years.

Lyrics, love & loyalty
Write a vision see it through believe in it see it bloom to life
Write a vision see it through believe in it see it bloom to life
Write a vision see it through believe in it see it bloom to life
Write a vision see it through believe in it see it bloom to life
Write a vision
Now the craft is what I practice
Emperors disguised as sloth unattractive
Bridge the gap between hippie & hoodlum
Book Of Exodus
KKK scalp them
Reduce hate
Still strive to inspire
Can I trust you?
You must captivate
Words stick in head
Existence of nectar
Spread facts spread turmoil spread guidance
A calm riot
The highest mentally don't make you the nicest
A life peaceful
Avoids being self righteous around people
A selfish tyrant
There's a time and place for everything
Rhyme away petty flings
Mind banks on heavenly change
No deposits on damnation
Front row of your show
Got spat in your face with saturation
Salvia drench make sense
Guitar cords transform garbage to art quick
Stand for survival to information
Information gained and it stand for survival
If these words mean nothing to you
How can they mean something to someone else?
Produced sounds hearts felt I do shit felt (heart)
Lyrics above loyalty
Lyrics above weak minded tendencies
Lust is the brother of envy
My home of creativity
My thoughts are the coat hanger roast a couch potato
Saw potential in the eyes of a stranger
Although she look good move slow
She a flirt pro (hoe)
Torso's fall below on a exposed manhole
Watch your step for the listener
I'm a deep thinker
Remain purple haze coughing
Can't stand people bullshit for long George Carlin
humor.
Bernie Mac pride
I love to rhyme
Suicides running reciting lines
The game blame the horrors of fame (pain)
And I'm amazed
How some of the lifestyles resemble a stagnant cage
Love liberty

Pruven (verse 1)

All is random so I paint random
All is random so I scribe random
All is random so I paint random
All is random all is..

We all relate to death expect
Each flesh each step & the souls are suspect
Cheap thrill are diasters
Pure laughter on spineless so called actor's. Rack'em
Satan on cue 8 ball move pool God stick rule
Insurgents poison kids school
War tactics peace packing recession attacking straight jacket action
Insanity flashing what happened?
The older you get the better you use to be
No longevity potential canceled out immediately
C'est la vie los manos
Rep your coast
You better give God that oath
Toast to the higher power
Higher knowledge no kingdom
You always following
You don't take things serious
But too serious you end up depressed and delirious
Smile sit back and think for a while
& it's strange your brain work in such weird ways
Dark dank devil dress in angel robes
Hell represents paradise in psychotic episodes
Old ancient American christianity
Tied the black woman to the oak tree
& every stroke of the whip drew blood lovely
With religion
Sunday morning he beat the slaves the pulpit he's sitting
Sermons stinking
Massage the back of "Time" to ease the future
Steak knife to grain & do what they not use to
Armored manuevers
He speaks in vain
& she creeps in day
He cheats to play
& she snakes the game
He sunk his fangs
& she loved the pain
Blame they both came now who the game done change?
I scribe
& I release my mind
Dedicated to spitting scripts off the venom
Give a glimpse present how your manuscripts will glisten
You don't take good advice you shrug it off
The boy brain soft
He can't speak clear at all
Holocaust verbal spiritual mental
The clown stole the store dvd rental
Scribble jam jam scribble with the pen
Painting words from within my soul stay trying to dodge sin

(chorus)

I hate hearing half ass music
(I know I despise)
I hate hearing half ass music
(I detest I despise)
I hate hearing half ass music
(I know I despise)
I hate hearing half ass music
Elevate come with a full arsenal

Pruven (verse 2)

I will do my thing
I have much skill to bring
Beyond streets dry heat African dirt feet
From this reality we will teach
Beyond the grave find life
& the hands of the slave the master will slice
Deep south kiss Africa's mouth
The same planes that drop food drop bombs on the house
Picture, walking in dry dirt streets mind altering heat change your views on belief
It's the swarm of flies, mudslide babies outside
Christian suicide the voice of a martyr will never die
Some die before help could come
& some cried to God with tears dried from the Sun
& no one starve like in Sudan
Thousand malnutrition while you stand the laziest man with no plan
Gangsters, actors, backbones is gelatin
Missiles in Kenya turn aircraft to skeleton
No change
Africa guerilla militia still kill the same
Who is to blame?
Born blind lil girl
Torn design pain curls
Muslim forces spin torment towards the Christian world
Corruption M16's busting
65% of Sudan's 38 million people are Muslim
Ethnic genocide
Cleaning bloodlines
Every child can be fed
Every life will be dead
So the head filled with wisdom shaped like tips of led
Aim for the heart
Change what you thought
Gain with a cause
Obtain use brain to evolve this art
Respect your home & your own life around your bone expose the unknown
Study current events

Pruven (verse 1)

Story 1
Big Bro, lil Sis raised in slums
Not the same ole hardships but one of them found love
Distraught
Big Bro tried to make lil Sis stop
She follow money, men & cars
Loved bad boys behind bars
Often
Lil Sis did favors & lost respect
& big Bro he tried to keep her life in check
Then one night of sin
Lil Sis was in the car with two men
One said, "What's up? $20 bucks to let us both fuck".
She said, "Hell naw!".
They scuffled they opened her neck up
Knife to the windpipe ended lil Sis life
Robbed and raped tossed in a ditch
Big Bro he took revenge
Found both men and beat them to death with both of his fist
The judge didn't connect to his strife gave big Bro life
In a prison fight
Big Bro was stabbed by some guy
With a ink pen to the eye
With no frown with 1 eye now
Big Bro performing songs on that prison show "Lockdown"
Lock up

Chorus:
These stories of strangers across the globe.
Across the globe
Across the globe x 3

Pruven (verse 2)

Story 2
"2 Americans 2 British killed for world news massacres
They need new NATO commanders
Ted Kennedy died
Mike Jackson homicide
Surprise move
You better protect those close to you
Some can swallow torture as easy as drinking water
Taliban cuts off nose of Afghanistan voters
They find voting registration on you, they disfigure you
The Nazi's they killed over 6 million Jews
Their survivors split up Israel after World War 2
3 soldiers in their 20's stand at a monument
20 years later the 3 come together to relive the event
Survival of war
Rebirth with the people
Pro lifer's scream believe in God not the government
While atheist tossing A-bombs to disrupt these events
I'm placing faith & belief in what I can see
Alpha to my Omega"
This is a letter to his professor.
He wrote this,
In his senior thesis.

Chorus:
These stories of strangers across the globe.
Across the globe
Across the globe x 3

Pruven (verse 3)

His story "tres"
It's a weekend morning he in bed with his love,
& he's staring upon her face.
Bed king size, silk sheets both in birthday suites
She's everything he ever wanted and needed too
On his road to love he'd check his car for bombs every morning
Done touring being a male whore
Wants to have 1 have heart & give more
His thoughts with her were natural
They were together
For real love issues
Alive with purity too sexy in her birthday suite
Cook good too
Her sex had his spine through the roof
She learned to be a squirter too
Both paid those bills on time
No leeching off the other
She loved his sex from behind
Loved his spiritual & his mind
& he is thinking
When his hotel was his car
She treated him like a all-star
& gave the man the best massage

(sample: Look at you, all tied up pretty as a present. I think it's time to unwrap you)
Track Name: M & J
Pruven (verse 1)

A black rose falls from Heaven
Symbolic unbreakable body armor grace & triple seven's.
He reads of the paper when he records. (naw)
Get ignored no lie we all done it before
Clash quicker lose patience sicker
As Jerry Seinfeld sat in a room with Hitler
Jews vs. Germans
Lost hearts burning
Panic spot on faces of people coping
Blissful
Taking it one heart beat a moment
Exist with hate & peace
Envy rode back seat with you towards your alley of grief
Crowbar
She kissed you while you sleep
Open up
Your wallet was gone (see ya)
Love don't trust her
The girl was Cum Laude before she came a hustler
Incents lit
To cover the aroma
Infant bent
Born drunk from his momma
I can't quit this I speak for my dollars

Chorus:
Malice ... Joy

Pruven (verse 2)

Compassion is a beautiful weed growing in violent soil
Disown (who?) the disloyal
Enemies of freedom exposed by reading
Jesse Ventura spoke
Politics & wrestling go together
On camera they act as if they hate each other
Off camera they go to dinner together whenever
Act it out
& check the legislator
In Denver, Colorado police pose as protestors
Making protestors look evil so they can arrest innocent people
Check the Bohemian Grove to the Republican National Convention
To the Federal Banks henchmen
A coalition of deception the surface I scrape
Police stage riots and enforce hate
Dismantle peace
Analyze the streets
Things aren't what they seem
Just don't believe what I say
Study trails of history
& find your own way

Chorus:
Malice... Joy

Pruven (verse 3)

Check the resume
Things aren't what they seem today
Review the paper trails of the "Secretary of State"
Anguish taste swallow conformity
Real particular of who I trust politically
Yet spiritually being the epidermis is black
& just because the president is too
Doesn't mean I believe in his facts
Truth leaks Obama works for "Wall Street"
Former "Secretary of State", Henry Kissinger
Gave Barack his first job out of college go figure
To not bringing our troops home
The presidential position is a puppet post
Taxes have risen
Americans research what?
The Trilateral Commission
Plus the "Glass-Steagall Act"
The hell is that?
The banking act from the 30's destroyed by Larry Summers
So the Federal Reserve Bank can have maximum power
Higher than the president
The Federal Reserve Bank is higher than all the govenment
That right?
Research it
Scary
Track Name: Repeated Questions
Pruven (chorus)

What does music mean to you?
The ciphers, the culture, the club, the cars?
What does music mean to you?
Ringtones, freestyles, black hoodies, black-n-milds?
What does music mean to you?
A outlet a reach, towards the freedom of speech?
What does music mean to you?
Self expression love of self, discipline?
What does music mean?
It's timeless, it's endless

verse 1

Hopefully music means more to you than these words I speak
Deeper than what we see
The love remains deep
The piano, the keys, the baseline the melodies
Music is seen as a vent
So I spit
To the people it's a deep issue
True meaning lying deeper than the flesh bone & tissue
The energy within myself
To reach out & touch somebody else
Although most feel lyricism should be shelved
Make music fun
"I can't dance to this"
Give gifts from the heart veins inject with abundance
Of crew homage, meetings, crew discussions
No animosity brainstorm future projects coming
Conquer long term goals as well as the short
Stay & rep your man's set don't go out for a newport
Be real
Reachable, approachable,
Be stern but yet negotiable
So..

(Chorus) What does music mean to you?
Jewelry, a chain, was music how you earned your name?
What does music mean to you?
Al Green, Prince, Black Sabbath, E.P.M.D.?
What does music mean to you?
Your fashion statement or your safe haven?
What does music mean to you?
A way for life or a way for money?
What does....
It's timeless, it's endless

verse 2

You can taste the love for music in every single bar
The pitcher of pleasure was poured in my jaw by my God
You can see & hear I'm aware of all my flaws
Roast marshmallow musicians for trying to stay hard
At best music will self express whether your light or dark
Doesn't matter your color
As long as you create from the heart
You selfishly scheme so your certain you just starve
These aloe sounds heal musical burns & scars
Respect the past
& become who you are
Past musicians paved a better way for tomorrow
My plate of ideas is best served raw
Some suck more than "Super Head" to become stars
Avoid hate of Babylon that's often hard
Like a asthmatic
Trying to run a marathon
Music is perfect
How you can hear a song and it takes your mind back to where you first heard it

(chorus) What does music mean to you?
The time and place where you first heard that bass?
What does music mean to you?
Life.. all day and night
What does music
What does music... mean to you?
Track Name: Heathen's Anthem
Pruven

Human pain in the form of a audio metaphor
From the Lord's eardrums ... to everyone

verse 1

The burden of silence makes him think
As I describe writings on Egyptian walls as petroglyphs (huh?)
Arose the culture
Spears through triple six vultures
Light flashes
Gave birth to cosmic blackness
String yarns of thought
Needle and thread the art
Weave a fresh start
Sowed together my cloth sparks
Remember your throne don't depart
Blueish crystals
He live off of weed
Hennessy, greed, sun flower seeds, dashiki's
Then see David's dream
He slay Goliath as a teen now legacies gleam
Atheist don't care but it's rare to tare vocals
Blemishes
This is the covenant abolishing all spiritual hatred
Pulverize pollution
Economically losing
So I'm throwing psalms with arm stronger than Cam Newton
& if you think you know it all
Just stare up at the stars

(chorus)
A heathen's life
Is rearranged with three seven's
3rd eye technic we seek wisdom and peace (x4)

verse 2

I'm learning how to capture the moment
Don't disown it master it your eternal conscious own it
Land lord knocks at the door
Same complaints from before
He was robbed last week no one really cares for sure
If you called it true assume to search
Research was your viewing & observe first
People have their own problems
Thoughts want to be heard
Emotions felt with words embrace the balance
The silent warrior dashes
Into the land of the holy
Your actions are anti-soul free
Lost identity
Metamorph from mere misery
Seek inner peace
Make miracles happen mentally
No distractions
No
No distractions
None

(chorus)
A hethan's life
Is rearranged with three seven's
3rd eye technic we seek wisdom and peace (x4)

verse 3

Uproar alone
Create from the silence in my soul
They say wrath in the last thing in a man to grow old
Flee the ashes show he falls right into the coal
Molten magma
Rivers of lava
Envision a fire that burns under water
When man mastered the art of making fire
It was a historical event made from the Maker's attire
Locate leeps in mankind's evolution
Bronze Age retribution
From throwing stones to making swords
Spiritual consciousness
Injected into inanimate objects
Gun firing bullets only if the trigger recognize the finger tips
Fire burn legit
A "Greek Fire" won't quit
Be prepared information returned to sinner
Insidious agenda
Ya get burned quicker
Band hades
& war spares not the brave but the cowardly
Band hades
& war spares not the brave but the cowardly
Think about the pictures in 3-D
It's all been done before
But you could always do more (do it)

(chorus)
A heathen''s life
Is rearranged with three seven's
3rd eye technic we seek wisdom and peace
A heathen's life
Track Name: Substance Won't Sell
Pruven (verse 1)

It's night time
Skyline moon shine dancing with his bronze queen from behind
Waste line grabbing
Slow is how time moves when happiness is happening
Scenery elastic
Stretch Time's fabric
It's just practice
Gain knowledge the mind is free
Your book on honesty to sloppy to read
No fools in the palace of truth
Crowds won't move
I spew emerald ruby crown jewels
Through the wormhole dimension unfold
A man saw happiness worth more than gold
Relate to cultures different races
Occupy speech
Bury cemetaries of deceit
Origins of peace rest in me so I must be the emcee
To endure
Endure
Endure
Endure
Endure

(chorus)

Endure the times
& more you find
You show them love
& build'em up
You do not trust everyone
Stay patient & love yourself
As we travel
Pain we battle
Ideas grow
Ideas change
Selfish martyrs bury cultures
Build intellect build self-respect

verse 2

Now,
It's a joyous occasion
My roots are amazing
The truth on the pavement
Employ all sages
A joyous sensation
A booth in the basement
Whose he?
Ignore all basics
Dance floor contagious
Heart beat is racing
Type of guy who will shake hands with the "Divine"
Hence a joyous vibration
Soar!
Book smart fools do what you say
As he grows old soul turns so cold grow info
Infinite definite
Distributed kill the vicious bare witness
A joyous creation
Source of frustration
Who Who Ha!
Calm yourself boy & just "Wu Sa"
The range of the precious
Aim every lesson to hearts of aggression

(chorus)

Endure the times
& more you find
You show them love
& build'em up
You do not trust everyone
Stay patient & love yourself
As we travel
Pain we battle
Ideas grow
Ideas change
Selfish martyrs bury cultures
Build intellect build self-respect

Ain't no artist perfect
Ain't no song perfect
Ain't no man perfect
For those who motivate it's time to demonstrate
Ain't no artist perfect
Ain't no lyric perfect
Ain't no thought perfect
For those who motivate it's time to demonstrate

(sample: Everything starts with a dream, deliverance, deliverance, deliverance, everything starts with a dream & then it's deliverance )
Track Name: Passato Prossimo
Pruven (verse 1)

Happy moments
Saturday morning cereal bowl sipping
Chocolate milk
Cocoa pebbles "Ninja Turtle" mission
The rebel is suspenseful
On youthful avenues I rode on a skateboard
Now on some "William Cooper" to "Hawthorne"
Mechanics odd
Hood men listening like, "What went wrong?"
Still he endures and pursues gratitude
Rambling
You need to stay on topic
& finish one project
Quit living lazy claiming to be a artist
In his writing
You can tell he lies to himself
Don't respect women
Depressed lacks love stressed
For being broke plus a mess
His bullshit is viral
& he talks in spirals
Always saying what you wanna do & never make a move
Won't do anything new to self-boost
Relies on others & he lies to his mother

(chorus)
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
But that's a lie
We all need help in these times
But it's a good state of mind
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
But that's a lie
We all need help in these times
But it's a good state of mind

(verse 2)

She was looking at a old photograph
Wanting the path
Bath in the presence
Of the present
His practice has no honor
He made a snow angel in a pile of garbage
Grow the hell up or sit the hell down
The president is brown
"Is the boss white?"
Wow
I'll get a pink slip for lazy work now
Colorless I'm in libraries thinking
How to defeat enemies by pumping by brain's pistons
Who could
Give a
Flying liquor bottle to the face
You drinking liquor lying dying with disgrace
Will hate crimes end?
No
NO
Just know
From the ugliest souls of the vile
View blessings from the heavens to the sunshine of Earth's smile

(chorus)

Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
But that's a lie
We all need help in these times
But it's a good state of mind
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
Just self rely
But that's a lie

(sample: You know i always thought you had talent, it's just your follow through wasn't there)
Track Name: Hollow Entrance
Pruven (verse 1)

He was a tattoo artist
His girl was up and coming model who just started
Spare time
A mechanic and he did car tints
Plus rode skateboard and his girl watched his tricks
For birthdays she strip
& shake those hips
In birthday suit she won the "Buffalo Chip" (huh?)
"American Biker" version of "Miss America"
Spot barbecues and Harley Davidson's forever
Bodies of tattoos
Festival of booze
6 years they dated
Marriage arrangements?
Who knows what lies on the future's pavement
Foot prints unknown to tell
In his "memory well"
He kept his woman's smell
They slept on beach sands
Call it art
He found his woman more elegant than harps
He found her smile tattoo'd to his heart

(chorus)

Listen.

verse 2

Demon breath with God's tongue
Harvey Kartel (Keitel)
Find those who rapes nuns
"Bad Lieutenant" son
7 candles placed in a circle
He sat down Indian style contemplating trials hurtful
They started strong but ended soft
Conversations immature after his pain she was gone
Bicuspids split
Night robbery hit
Cheek bone chipped
Crow bar to face bliss
He awoke in a hospital she was gone
Year comatose now his mental all off
Brain trauma made it hard
No insurance at all
Vegetable status
Usual love now gone
Some broads vindictive shallow with no heart
Appreciate a good find
Love hard to come by
He awoke
In a hospital with no one there
So,
Make love to the body of despair

(chorus)

Track Name: Transcend
Verse 1

Make moves
Doing more than just getting through
I love my life through the anguish and I still grew
Make'em smile
Make everything worth while
Make a dark heart child just take a bow and appreciate himself
Everyday every step respect
I'm preaching wisdom from my chest
Any way any day any moment that I get
I'll stay focus till my death
I've seen best friends pass away
& still paint pictures of happiness on those rainy days
Nature cold
Van Gogh flow
Expose spirits the color of charcoal
These cold souls tossed in lit stoves
Discipline and determined with the lyrics
The more you complain
The more it weaken your spirit
So shut the fuck up cause no one wants to hear it

Chorus:

I mean what I say
& I say what I mean
You spit too lenient
You speak to a motherfucker you gots to mean it, mean it, mean it
I say what I mean
& I mean what I say
You spit too lenient
You speak to a motherfucker you gots to mean it, mean it, mean it

Verse 2

Patience
I will persevere
Pain is temporary don't let it control fear
Progressive years
Turn amatuers to pioneers
A girl on blow spend a year trying to find a mirror
We all have addictions and some are sickening
Time to get a grip on them and get rid of them
Persistent chasing perfection
Music creates the message
To erase misconceptions
& change fate's direction
Ying & Yang
I advance through the pressure
I won't be ignored at times less is more
I want a awesome encore applause
Earn it (huh)
& just breathe it in
I was a selfish dude
I changed my attitude
Realized I can't see the stars when the sky is blue
The world I can't change but the world I can improve
This is for you
The overwhelmed and confused


Chorus:

I mean what I say
& I say what I mean
You spit too lenient
You speak to a motherfucker you got to mean it, mean it, mean it
I say what I mean
& I mean what I say
You spit too lenient
You speak to a motherfucker you gots to mean it, mean it, mean it


Verse 3

This world is cold cold air shows the breath
Color blind the racist lay racism to rest
Find passion coach and be the ref.
Like Life's a game you invented you control every step
Be a voice not a echo
Mistakes carve regrets
Somethings you should let go
Somethings you should expect
From the joy of miracles
To the sadness of death
Dreams should never rest, when that's all you got left
Theres kids starving
& there stomachs are singing songs
This world is far from being equal to us all
Those closest to you may trip you and watch fall
Fuck'em all pen in palm writing strong till I'm gone
Know when your wrong
& stop lying to yourself
Know when to fight
& stop hiding in yourself
So when your gone
You may inspire someone else to live to the fullest and never die within yourself.


Chorus:

I mean what I say
& I say what I mean
You spit too lenient
You speak a motherfucker you gots to mean it, mean it, mean it

Pruven verse 1

Sustain . . .
& read these tight jean emcees think they hard
Deep emcees metaphors soft
Playing Rakim twisting trees
Stone temple pilots creed
Pink Floyd's off the wall dream far
Coldplay Africa Bambaataa mix
Inhale these cool flicks
Mysterious man or dude
Play cd's from Roots to Tool
Yeh step up & taste the talent
Dimension breaker flavor
What he say?
It's not cherries in your cool whip.
D.N.A. got him in a cage
Over paid lawyer couldn't make rape charge fade
False charge anyway
Get him out get him out
Treat authors the same way Peter treats his daughter
Meg "Family Guy"
Why barbwire throats?
The false god spoke provoke gave all the people idol hopes

chorus:
Man doesn't have all the answers
Give advice in stanzas
I exist in rhyme
Existence combines to uplift the spirits
Hollow sounds here
Bang on your chest talk is your heart there?
Analyze songs
Analyze society strong
& I make way
S.o p.eople a.nd c.oncepts e.volve
Call it space. (s.p.a.c.e.)

Pruven verse 2

Catholics and convicts
The Christian the marxmen
The ideas of prophets the eye stares of Islamics
Time glare rhyme tares just to astonish
Rhyme pride soul size is an old comet
Say I could be better
But you could never ever be a trend setter
Or make your art so clever
Look in the mirror the only enemy is you
Stab backs frequently and you won't pay dues
With murder in his sights the sniper spared a life
Eased his finger from the trigger thought twice
This is trial and error
I ran through the walls of impurity with bricks still on me
Defoul satan's mistress death is life's kiss eccentric substance
Written in hieroglphics
Now, you better bow in God's face
Slave base is how today's shape of the United States came to place

chorus:
Man doesn't have all the answers
Give advice in stanzas
I exist in rhyme
Existence combines to uplift the spirits
Hollow sounds here
Bang on your chest talk is your heart there?
Analyze songs
Analyze society strong
& I make way
S.o p.eople a.nd c.oncepts e.volve
Call it space. (s.p.a.c.e.)

Pruven chorus:

Clap clap clap your hands
Clap clap clap your hands
When I say, "Hip-Hop"
You say, "Won't stop"
"Hip-Hop" "Won't stop"
"Hip-Hop" "Won't stop"
80% of statements are really questions
So what you saying?
I deliver a special message
Days of pain lead to days of shame
Days of losses lead to days of gain

Pruven verse

From shame
No honor will whisper upon your name
For fame
Authors will often follow the same
My claim
On dollar bills I scribble my name
Unveil antidotes bend circles of madness
Align intelligence
March with your maker bring forth favor
Align design
The dude quite convincing
In truth
His parables were quite explicit
Often coughing his bronze coffin is called eccentric
Death in the sunset is apart of the divine mention
Gut wrenching
Fame made him an apparition
Reveal relief happiness will bare witness
Gorgeous pain ugly insane
Modern day Andy Dufresne free from the cage
Belly flop splash on thought waves
Transform haiku's to hurricanes
Week days to weekends pray, shoot threes, play pool with friends
Touchdown quarterback with pens throw gems
Paranoia has him famished
The house of fear
Rolled over with a bulldozer of courage
Telepathy from the unknown unseen G.O.D., T.H.C., in blood stream
Why ask why guillotine through the guy
Infect the 3rd eye with pink
To make'em think whatever
Make the people all think better

chorus

Clap clap clap your hands
Clap clap clap your hands
When I say, "Hip-Hop"
You say, "Won't stop"
"Hip-Hop" "Won't stop"
"Hip-Hop" "Won't stop"
80% of statements are really questions
So what you saying?
I deliver a special message
Days of pain lead to days of shame
Days of losses lead to days of gain
