LIVIN' PROOF

Image
My life story strictly business never blew my chance Moms kicked me out the house when I was flippin "I'm the Man" Put the boys on the street, make them walk this beat Teach them how to eat, and to seek for peace Son I stamped this name Livin' Proof cause I mean what I say Bring the fake to reality and make them pay Yo these ghetto rhyme stories got em scared to death I'm tryin to get the **** out, see what the world's about Check it nineteen-eighty-six is when I reached my peak Take my brothers outta state and tried to make some ends meet First destinate your sector then it's just like that Makin moves with my brothers and there's no turnin back We got thirty-six grams on the scale right now Gettin ready with my brothers time to break the **** down I'm not about killin my people but you know how it go Work with me not against me and we'll make mad dough Wear my co-defendant out when I break down with rap Hold me back and give me love and now…

FEEL THE MUSIC

Music! Music!
[Guru] Times like this make me clench my fist Then I'm caught up in the midst of the musical bliss Guru, blow a kiss to the ladies in my corner Caress the mic, and kick my game like I want to What? You never see the brother Guru falter Respect is due; praise me like the altar The crew - we're as true as they come, son We come from ill life experience, and take rap serious Feel the music
[Chorus] We hold the key to our destiny We can make it, everybody Feel the music Just free your mind; sit back, relax, and unwind To a higher plane, we're going Can you feel the music?
Music!
[Guru] Original baldhead Crooklynite, rudebwoy instructor I came back to lay down law to the suckers I'll crush ya if you ain't actin' like my brother Make one false move and with the mic I'll bust ya Just lay back, and feel the music
[Chorus]
Music! Music! Music!
[Guru] When I step into the club, I come to do work No hesitation because I'm fully alert Like Max Julien…

LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn But that's alright because I like the way it hurts Just gonna stand there and hear me cry But that's alright because I love the way you lie I love the way you lie
[Eminem] I can't tell you what it really is I can only tell you what it feels like And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight As long as the wrong feels right it's like I'm in flight High off of love, drunk from my hate, It's like I'm huffing paint and I love it the more I suffer, I suffocate And right before I'm about to drown, she resuscitates me She fucking hates me and I love it. Wait! Where you going? "I'm leaving you" No you ain't. Come back we're running right back. Here we go again It's so insane cause when it's going good, it's going great I'm Superman with the wind at his back, she's Lois Lane But when it's bad it's awful, I feel…

F*ck WHAT U HEARD

[Sadat X] "Although I hit a pound of herbs I'm still nice with the verbs So fuck what you heard" [x4]
I break shit up so just chill, and sit still I'm not on the pop hop but yo my shit still Sells like a mother, there's not another Dark brown brother who grew up undercover Running game on a dame like Too $hort I'll smoke an MC like a Newport Or a Marlboro, or a Salem It doesn't matter cause I take him and I wail him Get a rush of the nicotine, battle? Nigga please, I won't even attempt But if the crowd thinks he's a worthy opponent I'll grab the mic and show I own it Yo bust it, better off if you not sing, God bless the pothead As I remember what my moms and my pops said Strive for the best, you gain your respect Or you can settle for a public assistance check If you don't want to break your neck So I said "What the heck?" People always say "Hey we like the way you make beats" He doesn't use breakbeats But I take i…

The Composite Knowledge

Image
This exhibition featuring Jaybo Monk, POESIA, and Sam Rodriguez, captures the evolution of graffiti writers to fine artists.

{“The Composite Knowledge” unveils exceptional works by these three artists and shows the act of “compositing” by fusing the playful, unconscious process of painting with the techniques that they have gained over the many years of being fine artists and painting with a spray can. Immersed in the experimental, this exhibition aims to excite and surprise fans, artists, and collectors, alike.} http://1amsf.com/art-2/the-composite-knowledge-jaybo-monk-poesia-sam-rodriguez/

As a digital alchemist, Android builds on the technical developments of past centuries in art history while pushing the boundaries of the imagination with new technologies and media forms....

Moving beyond the traditional technologies of pencils, ink, and brushes, Android develops latent possibilities within software programs such as Painter, Photoshop, ZBrush, and Alchemy, discovering new combinations and uses for tools that exceed the original intentions of their programmers...}

S.S. COACHELLA

Image
This just in.. it seems COACHELLA is taking a note from HOLY SHIP and setting sails. There are two maiden voyages one to the Bahamas, and the other.... Jamaica monn!

Tickets start @ $500...Personally if I were going on a cruise I would be on the HOLY SHIP boat only because the line up is too amazing!! Maybe Coachella should have took the brand name and invested a little more in the entertainment. To each their own.. either way a trip to paradise is in order!
Check out allthe details @ http://ss.coachella.com/index.php.

WALL 2 WALL

Image
In Miami.Florida.2009 Tony Goldman decided to transform the warehouse district of Wyndwood into giant canvases. He started with 6 buildings alon 26th & 25th ST, he hoped to develope the area's pedestrian potential.

He also wanted to give the street art and graffiti movement the respect and appreciation he thought it deserved.

"By presenting it in a way that has not been done before, I was able to expose the public to something they had only seen peripherally."

Shepard Fairey: WYNWOOD WALLS

{The world-class murals and spirit of the project continues to attract thousands of people to the Wynwood Walls each year. Among other things, it is an inspiring model for the revitalization of run-down, abandoned historic communities and a must-see destination for the city.} http://thewynwoodwalls.com/
