You caught me at a bad time
Like a mastermind devising crime
But never mind the petty shit
Too many lines I gotta spit
Too many struggles to admit
My messages you gotta get
I Been waiting patient
For this fucking medication
All the doctors hella busy though
I blame the legislation
To tell the truth
I didn’t vote this past election
Learned my lesson
From the men in office
And the way they representing
For your information
I call myself an independent
Been resenting all the shit the politicians been content with
I like to keep my circle small and undercover
Dodging shit that crush the others
What had crossed the mind of Jesus Christ
When he was at the Final Supper
Did he really know the nature of the men he praised?
Or did the future of them
Put him well to rest within the grave
Despite the lives his risen body claims to save?
Oscar Wilde, he said it best
We all within the gutter
We tend to studder
But some are lookin’ at the stars
And planets we have not discovered
I guess I’m just another lover
That time has covered up
I’ve had enough
With stupid hippy shit
I snap my fingers once awhile
Philosophy come outta it
The shit’s legit
I hope your mind can process
All the lines that I emit
By now it’s fair to think I’m talking kinda cocky
I’m a dude you never heard of
Chattin’ like a walkie-talkie
But I’m on the frequency of decency
I live my life real peacefully
And frequently conceive of ways
To eat the beats that I receive
All I see is confusion and chaos. Blatant disorder, authorities pickin’ on the minorities. Unfortunately, the land of the free has little to offer me. And got me awfully thinkin’ about offin’ me. I wake up in the morning and I ask myself. Is life worth living, should I blast myself? I’m tired of being broke and even worse. The upper class acts like they want me off this earth. This life will drive you crazy. Only if you allow it. That’s only if you a coward and you’re sure to get devoured. To no avail, tuck your tail, and all you do is give them power. Who’s gonna take a stand, who’s gonna be a man?. Who do you work for? Please help me understand. You could be the victor in a situation. We may die individual, but as a nation. We’ll rise, nigga, change lives, nigga. Break ties from the everyday lies, nigga. It’s not time, until it’s our time.

With all this extra stressing
The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath
When will I finally get to rest through this suppression?
They punish the people that’s asking questions
And those that possess, steal from the ones without possessions
The message I stress: to make it stop study your lessons
Don’t settle for less – even the genius asks his questions
Be grateful for blessings
Don’t ever change, keep your essence
The power is in the people and politics we address
Always do your best, don’t let the pressure make you panic
And when you get stranded
And things don’t go the way you planned it
Dreaming of riches, in a position of making a difference
Politicians and hypocrites, they don’t wanna listen
If I’m insane, it’s the fame made a brother change
It wasn’t nothing like the game
It’s just me against the world
~ Tupac (Me against the world)
@jaceonetime, Ah, word man. Glad you like it. I don’t actually make music, per se. I merely come across beats that inspire me to write over them. I’m more of a writer than a rapper, although I mess with the genre like nobody’s business haha.
I don’t listen to much older stuff (material that has been out more than a couple of years), but I’ve a pretty extensive knowledge when it comes to recent projects (if even by dudes who have been in the game for awhile).
If you want to listen to some inspiring but grounded, really, really, REALLY impressive shit, then I invite you to spend some time with these dudes whom I will list below in no particular order. I’ll include a few links to their best bodies of work (of course, my opinion spelling my selections). Dedicate a night to each artist, and enjoy some of the best hip-hop you’ve ever heard in your life. Peace
Savor the artistry.
@tatler, Hell ya senior year of high school J5 was my shyit! Concrete schoolyard is so baller.
@emnes, Well he did his whole rock’n'roll experiment and totally fucking blew dick at it, now he’s trying to collab with black keys is what I have taken in, and doing similar experiments. He’s still got his voice but nothing good to say and no creative passion.
I want to live in the woods,
Ride a bear to work at the break of dawn,
Which is also in the woods, so I’ll Neva really leave the woooods
Uh, ok, I said ride a bear to work at the break of dawn
I’ll have two pet beavers who’ll mow my lawn,
One to cut grass and one to just chill
I also have a giraffe and his name will be Phil.
Two blue birds who speak Japanese,
Atleast I think it’s Japanese I don’t speak Japanese!
UHH. (but they don’t hear me tho, but they don’t hear me tho)
I’ll rope swing home every night to my Jane and a fresh pumpkin pie,
It’d be a lie if I said this ain’t the humble life
I’m just being honest when I’m talking about the jungle life
All my sloth buddies and me just loungin, just snoozin
But then a kangaroo jumped in-to-the jacuzzi!
We said “no way man you’re too damn big”
He said “my bad guys ive just been eating lots of figs”
We said “c’mon roo, have you ever heard of diets?”
The baboons chimed in “Yeah! Go ahead try it!”
All of a sudden the kangaroo got mad
He screamed something but it was weird sounding because he was so damn mad
I couldn’t understood it, I doesnt understand it
But now this kangaroo was killing my jungle family!
I freaked out, I ran, I climbed a vine to the canopy
I screamed, I made noises, I couldn’t stop panicking
I looked down and he was screaming too!
He looked up and said “I’m comin for you!”
I slide down a giant leaf into a secret underwater cave
Phew, good thing, Atleast for now I’m safe

I write poetry some of it is close to what you might consider a rap. One of my favorite quotes I’ve written:
“Us humans are hollow and by nature fill the whole with things, hobbies, and ideas. Whether you choose thinking or drinking; what to do is up to you. There is only one moment, and it is NOW, and it is eternity.”
Have a look at a these hiphop groups from new zealand homebrew and @peace, these two bands have a amazing lyricist called tom scotch
well worth a listen to
here are a few of there tracks coming from the deep south of the world New zealand!!
Publishing poetry through a publisher is really hard. You either have to have connections, previous publications, or get really lucky. I’ve been sending some of my stuff off but nothing yet.
Ok… here’s a little something I call “The Condition Of Life”
POSTPONE THE APOCALYPSE
The caustic brevity of our existence is inevitably our persistence.
We are the implanters, the advancers.
I beam down to the futuristic cities, break up their leadership committees, and suck on their wive’s titties.
And yeah, my rhymes get a little gritty… but I write them for the subcommittees. Take it or leave it.
I am a raconteur, a grandeur voyeur, a force majeur. I am not de rigour, and yes I know about Louis Pasteur. Regardless, I will leave this.
People comin’ through and we’re gonna find you. Maybe you should start anew, construe a canoe, pursue a tattoo even though it’s taboo. If you want to… I can give you some analytical review.
Language is devolving.
“Oh poo! I think I caught swine flu.” I need a cure, it’s on debut.
Up my nose ’cause I believe you. Paying not to catch something; now I bid you adieu.
You’re pretty hard to get into, but someone would sure like to get in you.
Pursue a screw, imbue you with Mr. McNew.
They wear such pretty clothes, nobody knows their demons
this is the age of reason, it will manifest in due season.
Contageous, we spread across this nation. What I’m droppin’ is inspiration, so technically I breathe creation.
I part the sea of life, hoping more to come through. No I don’t want a wife, I just want you.
I want to see your soul; a single brick in the whole.
Please break for the enlightened and of course they’ll not be frightened.
It’s what they’re waiting for… it’s the next dirty Asian whore;
it’s time when shit hit’s the floor, what the fuck are we fighting for?
Yeah I’m a teacher, I’m also a student
I’m a philosopher, I consider it prudent
I care about science ’cause others abuse it
and I rhyme to time so we can hear true shit
drop me a line I might wanna use it
but right now I’ll touch on this new bit
Inadequate health care is quite a scare I admit, but I have clean water to drink… No shit.
Abortion may be contortion but I sleep at night knowing WE have my back.
And yeah, I heard of Tiger. I heard he cheated on his wife multiple times… Thanks for letting me hear about other people’s problems all the time. He’s my little cousin’s role model. Thanks for tainting the moment. We shouldn’t care.
In this great country, with great power, it becomes great… with responsibility.
If you deal me a card I’m gonna use it
and trust in WE because that’ll fuel it
don’t say goodbye unless you lose it
you can get high and I won’t give two shits
I might be a guy but I’ve got two hips
call me lazy, my brain; I use it
call me crazy… I might fuckin’ lose it
And I know he cares, that’s why I do this
Jesus introduced me to this motherfuckin’ game
that’s why I create; all in his name…
but he’s afraid, you’ve, uh, forgot about Buddha
and he’d like you to know, we’ve, uh, got nowhere to go
Our father, ART, in heaven hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom will come, thy will will be done, on earth
for it could/should/would/ and WILL be heaven.
Oh my god is this kid foreal? He’s spitting words that I can feel.
Like I said… I don’t care… I’m here for your soul.
Uttering words long spent unspoken, we are revolutionaries awoken.
Rhyme to time leave false idols broken;
make moves don’t live life simply hopin.
From a young age I took to the page,
wrote rhymes to explain the times.
It was always the abstract that consumed me
and the good times ate my soul; doomed me.
A long search for love landed me looking through memories for a glimpse of greatness.
You must realize you are your own creator limited only by that which you accept as reality and finality will follow.
Us humans are hollow and by nature fill the whole with things, hobbies, and ideas. Whether you choose thinking or drinking… what to do is up to you.
There is only one moment, and it is NOW, and it is eternity.
Y’all in the ocean coastin’ with the sails out
Hey America thanks for the bailouts
I made off like the banco ambrosiano
Got away scott free like el Vaticano
Acitvists act a bitch, get mad at me
‘Cause I’m a tax free charity
80% to the staff and company
And 20% to the homeless and hungry
The country gotta pay the fed reserve
Kick back to the banksters haven’t you heard
You protest cops or patrols on the street
But I bought city hall so I own the police
Email, facebook and the shit you tweet
Own the phone companies so I heard you speaking
My suggestion is no correction, no elections, sex with no affection
No invention would benefit the world of man
Will exist till I got the money in my hand
World bank, interest rate, damn rape on the spot
But I’m a gangster you gon’ take my money like it or not, nigga
(I got your country in my pocket, motherfucker!)
