about

"I wrote this song as one of the first ideas when putting together these weekly releases. The question asked within the hook is something I challenge myself with every time I go into the studio, whether with myself or with someone else.

It's a nice reminder because I didn't always want to say no in response.."

wait wait wait.////wouldn't you rather be intelligent?/
rather be perceived as scholastic than irrelevant ?/
now that's like fucking to find out if your celibate/
I find nothing goes better with wine than an elegant/

skyline/I'm trying to put you in my mind/
on the sideline/sideways as I rhyme/
I'm a different taste/based on my reviews
my bass will touch you/so take what I feed you/

//it's your own fault if you're starving/
i'm the harbinger of hardcore/I'm bombarding/
your artistic artillery/killin free's/silly me/
i thought I could drink this ENTIRE distillery/

///you can count on me I'm ready//
you can rely on my drums/to be the one on one deadly/
percussion//they could be the package that you're waiting on/
spit destruction/smackin out your safer songs/

i might not be on your radar/but they are/
and they are the beats I've produced and they play hard/
i'm like a polar bear/roll from my only throne/
solo roamed/i've grown so much from my lonely home...

now I am iller than your favourite//
better than those who made it/
better than those who's flows made their shows overrated/

I am rated top-tier/got ears on my every note/
paid to rock here/boss clear on my every quote/
now this is hard-core/listen in your par-lour/
pubs to clubs/I'm off the wall like parkour

hard for some to separate me from the space ship/
take grip of ya seat/get ready for a face lift/
nah/nah/this is the Alliance, baby/
we come in many forms but the vibe is crazy

I'm still lacing KIDS and the lion, baby/
Rude Man/the west coast/my drive, it made me/
in demand//how can I expect ya to understand/
ever since I got with AMP I've got to AMP'in the land/

I have ran off through it/you are soft/I'm fluid/
//I'm changing the pace and making you an offer/now do it/
I'm dangling sideways/leaning over the edge/
now it's dope to be called fresh/but being fresh aint the best/
