This Is It 03:54
Chorus: This is it, if I ever had a lover in my life, it was rhyme , I’ll never give it up And since I’ll never have another in my life, all I want to do is rhyme, I forget to live it up But this is it, grab a listen if it’s ill, if it isn’t getting buzz then I’ll get a better flow But if it is, then the mission is a hit, it’s official, I’m in love and I’ll never let her go. Verse 1: A yo I step up in the scene fresh and clean with a bit of extra lean, quick step like Ben Vereen, I never seem to be in one spot, I’m red to green, I’m the player who would never be seen but lead the team The head marine, General scheme, I’ll bend the beams like in Tel-Aviv, have the whole club sub-level B So check the steez (steelo), hundred to one, no sweat to me I’ll bet the keys and feel the effects when I’m ready to leave Generally, yeah I’m forever gettin peaved, so you best believe I’m steadily steamed, it gets me clean I’ll never be a fiend (as) long as I keep an esteemed tie in the reefer regime dispensing the leafy green By any means, got to remember to get receipts, keep a lengthy sheet of every expense It gets redeemed the very second I gleam, and spray my energy sheen, displayin every dream Yeah, you better believe Verse 2: Now, the second verse is something to behold, you can really feel the sweat from my soul like Dr. Scholz I dropped the gold, flatten the platinum and rock the show, I’m about to pop the popular mold, now swallow whole My wire’s got to blow, get grounded and shock the globe, not alot to know, go with the wattage and watch for Lo Now how about the flow, I’m a bottle ‘bout to po (pour), and if I tip over and spill, I’m sorry you got to row I’m not the chopper lowering rope, I’m an ocean liner dropping tires like they’re flyers and hoping most of them float See, we’re all stuck in the storm, the only difference is the boat and who you know, “Yo Lo, you be illin” True, I do be killin mics, and my fluid do be tighter than that doobie you be lightin and I do be feelin nice So if you ain’t truly hyped, I suggest you run on, and if you wanna combatively converse, baby c’mon Verse 3: Now, as I begin to accelerate, pedal against the metal plate, bobbin and weavin like a featherweight I’m generating up the speed so you can no longer see the surroud-around and hopefully both of our minds elevate And we can settle in a better place, yeah, take a sec and meditate, the reflection will get you melon straight We got a hell of a way to go before we celebrate and I’m fully eligible to demonstrate Oh yeah I walk I, never saw the floor under my feet, took a leap of faith and reached by the skin of my speech I talk more than often, Lord forgive me as I speak until the beat is obsolete and the machine has gotten weak I’m a touch above the norm, I touch a tune and I assume another form, I shape and I shift And when you see me in another song, you better come along and move, it’s simple either shake or you dip Cuz this is it.

Blah Blah 05:39
Intro: Now ladies and gents, fellow representatives and residents of this rock, listen This is not a game, it’s very intense, I guess in a way it’s like a test, let’s see who’s ready to question Verse 1: So this is hip hop, voice of the oppressed, never woulda guessed in a million hits full of glitz this was the song of the unsung, What with all the money talk, Is it really representing the struggle it comes from “NO” So this is hip hop, a sign of the times, guns are fun, cops are coming RUN, just another day in the life, So what you’re brother lays leaking it’s a murder right, do you hear the weeping of his son, little girl of wife “NO” So this is hip hop, well women beware, if you ain’t shakin your ass naked you wouldn’t be there, This is similar to what major religion has been doin since the beginning, a sin indeed, but do we seem to care “ OH NO” So this is hip hop, a place where the youth come and learn to chase a fantasy that ain’t even the truth Not to mention you talk about your possessions to the poor, knowing they’ll never relate, you’re showing them all yours and you sound like Blah Blah Chorus: Yo all I hear from your mouth is BLAH BLAH You got a really big house that’s BLAH BLAH You’re rocking iced out chains BLAH BLAH Another lady each day BLAH BLAH Oh yeah, you bust mad guns, whoa, BLAH BLAH You sell crack by the tons, oh, BLAH BLAH Ya’ll are some rich, pretty thugs talking BLAH BLAH,,,,brother what the blah blah Verse 2: How many times can you brag about your champagne, how many rhymes about your designer clothes Man it’s gettin to the point you’re repeatin the same brand names, we get it, you came up, everybody knows How about something to grow from, maybe so the cats who think you’re great will actually know someone cares Cuz you’re beating the same ol’ drum, speaking on the drama you create by keeping that negativity in the air Where are we gonna go next, the revolution of song, love written in the text, The dead are rooting us on up in heaven like Big L, Pac, Biggie, Freaky Tah, they were shot They never had a chance to die, all because of what’s hot And if you think the music doesn’t keep it going you’re a fool, for most of these young bucs, what you flow is a school The question is who’ll step out of the crowd, unprotected with the Lords message and yellin aloud you sound like Blah Blah Chorus: Bridge: A yo wake up, they’re just make up, They can put the signs up but they don’t make us Rake up all our dimes and, pay for the designs that they lace up Take a bunch and find what they make up An ain’t from what defines and creates us (It’s) The times in theatre So we should take the time that it take us to make up our minds and Shake em off the vine, really break up the rhymes and Take alittle time. Verse 3: You know sometimes the times are the hardest things to overcome, strictly on account of what you come by I’m not sayin it’s all false, and it definitely has a place, but the fact is now the majority does lie What do I suggest, well unless you’re really livin it, stop writtin them lies, if you’re live keep it limited Got to realize your number one in the eyes of these little kids, we’re slowin their minds with these spinnin rims We’re showing them violence, and bitches and gold, diamonds riches and hoes How could this have been sold, when our lineage is uprising, this isn’t us, I’ve been sick in disgust trying to listen and thus For the innocent I comprised a lyric of hope, I was sent to let the dust fly cuz fear is a rope for the spirit and it does tie us to accept the norm This is the time of our lives, lines are meant to be drawn, you sound like…….

Chorus (Repeat) END

Verse 1: Dear Mary Jane where do I begin Girl you're responsible for me witnessin' life as miracle on top of obstacle Feelin' you despite the numbers of brothers I've watched you do Me poppin your seed (should) symbolize the love I got for you No mistakes about it I've been hot for you You flipped it and let me pimp it like a prostitute, how could I part from you What we got is too real and so I continued to cop you booh Ironically the reason I never forgot my youth, see Mary I'm remindin' you We flirted in '92, to you credit is due cause I just deserted the Heine' brew (Heineken) And I knew since the first and fateful rendezvous, regardless of consequence or what the test of time would do, I'd be true Even writin' this rhyme I reclined and blew Sacrificing tight structure for passion, that's when you actually find the truth And hey, (if) you don't like it, sue I'm scribin' my mami chu', she was comin' by when I was through Now it's time I honor you, Dear Mary Jane I can explain Chorus: Mary Jane, I use you for the pain Don't get me wrong, I sing this song to praise your name Through the sun or the rain Mary Jane, I can explain how I feel Please understand I will take your hand, it'll make us stronger Verse 2: So many nights of powerful bonding I contemplate If I never found you in my life how would I operate You see I could've weighed the pros and cons and got this out the way some time ago I just stumbled on some kind of 'Dro, wasn't time to go See I thought the highest I could go was off your chocolate kiss And your Jiggin' in jars, throwing your partners in hyper fits Now I'm proud to announce, I'm enticed by this Rediscovering the fun and love of it, cypher until you bite my lip and even then still try to re-light the clip, I'm convinced that I'm addicted to enlightening, high and insightful bliss When I'm low, I load you up inside to my microchip and double click the 5 finger forgivin' plant Click and drag Say goodbye to the stressful present, and the forbidden past Takin' peace of mind over misery and the chick is bad Ever find something you're not supposed to have? And you get so attached, with no intention to give it back, this is that Dear Mary Jane I can explain Chorus (Repeat)

NYC 03:34
Verse 1: New York baby, the place where the pace persists, there’s never a second to waste, if you wait you’re history The clock tocks money, don’t waste your tics, a million and one hot spots, take your pick You see the city never sleeps, it’s unique like that Though other towns rock, occasionally they nap, But over here three in the morning the streets be packed with cabs and freaks, so it’s never police we lack We lead the pack by stayin open later, the originator of the 24 hour bodega Check the data, the midnight sales be boomin, the name of the game is whatever keeps it movin If you don’t believe your ears, come and see for yourself, Because this city here, really doesn’t need me to help I’m just a squirrel in the world that stops for nuttin and honey is the only thing that keeps the beehive buzzin New York City baby Chorus: Yeah, We in the NY, We in the NY,,,,,C,C,C,C, see this is New York City Verse 2: So many lights it’s brighter than the daytime sky, pull up a crate, live music being played outside You’ll never find another place that equates, why try? Simple and plain, I wouldn’t even waste my time Times Square is where it all comes together, party every New Year no matter how bad the weather We’re the most racially diverse place on this earth, so if you wanna flirt, learn a couple languages first This is an international affair, drinks in the air, let’s have a toast to everybody who ain’t in a chair If you’re holdin up the wall, let it fall, no biggie, you’re just givin the dance floor a better view of the city See it really doesn’t matter when you ride the vibe, and anywhere you’re from, as soon as you arrive in NY You’ll remember what you heard, how the all night jams are silly, can you say center of the world I can, New York City baby.

Verse 1: Feelin the breeze, I’m in a penthouse, chillin at ease I need a second to relax, in the fast live, bein at ease is something rare for a man like me But still it isn’t what it should be, “couldn’t we atleast be together for the night” I remember the words, I never heard such love and I never will again, Get the ref and let’s fight till the death of the urge, or till the birds fly north for the winter Whichever comes, I’ll be lost, if I give it a guess, then I’m willin to bet 9 lives all for the winner if there’s ever one, trust (that) I’ll be feelin the stress, never the less I’m here and the woman of my dreams is there I moan without touch and reach through the air, as I swear, if it wasn’t the job, then I’d be in her arms But I gotta be somewhere and all I hear is Chorus: You, you should be walkin me home, she said, You, you should be walking me on home instead Well I’m all alone, and I’m sinkin, and I’m thinking, and I’m going out my mind trying to find you What am I to do Verse: Now it’s suddenly hard, I got my mind on my job and I’m ducking the broad I never wanted her to come into harms way, but A) I’m in an odd place, B) I’m a sucker for charm But am I on point?, I ain’t at the ball for love, I’m on a mission and the villain is inside the room My arm joint’s huggin on my holster snug, and now I’m illin cuz I’m feelin like it’s time to move I see the boss by the door, the only way across is the dancefloor, I can see honey cuttin me off So I boogie and electric slide as I glide, and it’s luckier for her than me she never saw And I was able to remain low-key, when the bad guy bounced, I was under the car, buggin the ride on the outside But in my heart, I’d rather be at the bar and you’re wonderin why I never try with, you Chorus: You, you should be walkin me home, she said, You, you should be walking me on home instead Well I’m all alone, and I’m sinkin, thinkin, drinkin, and now I’m going out my mind trying to find you What am I to do

about

Notable stories about this album:

Most of the drum tracks were recorded in Evan's parent's basement in Long Island...I used his drum set which was already mic'ed. None of the songs were recorded to a click track except Oil Slick.

We found Chris Huth (artwork) through an old high school buddy of mine. He lived in Denver and had never been to NYC yet we were asking him to invoke the spirit of NYC in his artwork. What he came up with was partly from our random ideas we conveyed to him and also from him listening to the album.

Most of these songs were forged and polished in our rehearsal space at the fairly well known Music Building in midtown NYC. Our room was a few floors up from the White Stripes' room.
