[WhoAmI?] Hip Hop
I’m trying something new…
I’m calling it the [WhoAmI?] series.
The series is designed to give more insight into who I am.
Today’s [WhoAmI?] topic is Hip Hop.
I grew up listening to many types of music, but fell in love with hip hop in the mid 90s and started recording songs in 2003. Over the last 5 yrs. I haven’t recorded much but I’m preparing to record a full album within the next 12 months.
I love hip hop because it allows me to mix philosophy / introspection with art / words / technical writing and rhythm. It allows me to be the best me.
I know this may not be the type of music you normally listen to but…
Please take a moment to listen.
I wanted to share some of my work.
I’ve posted the lyrics below (click – read more).
Here’s my song “Subconscious Talk”.
Hope you enjoy!
Muzak – Subconscious Talk
Fresh outta the gates runnin up at a fast pace
in this rat race tryina get the opposite of last place
when i enter the arena for the finish
really wanna win it really wanna say that i just did it
and i listened to myself, i didnt even stop at all
put me in on fourth down and i caught the ball
i’m never stoppin, naw, and its not a common thought
ima listen for a minute just let my subconscious talk
because its wiser than, i would ever be
i just remember things, i want the better things
i get caught up an’ i lose focus,
and id say its hopeless but i know who my soul is….
there aint no reason for sitting down (not at all, not all)
try and walk this proper mile (everyday all day everyday, yes sir)
there aint no reason for this sitting down (no reason)
try and walk this proper mile ….
and it’s really kinda funny when i look up in the mirror
and im standin there lookin in my eyes n its clear
that i know who i am, and i know who i can be
but im not him all the time so i cant see
the things that i should when they’re in view
…..but when im in tune, that’s when I live truth
then then it lose it again cuz it’s a sequence, see
im just a radio tryina find my frequency
and so I keep searchin, cant be complacent
really trying to find that one radio station
the universe transmits, things can get
too much to manage, but life is full of chances
and so I take em, and changes can be difficult
when you make em, situations a-typical
never breaking, just believing in bein’
my subconscious wrote this while I was sleeping…
