Today we spell redemption . . .
Like the Native son of the Bronx, New York,
Who Ran his heart out on a million different occasions
to go to friend’s houses, go to the ice cream truck, the bathroom at Oval Park,
It seems like he was only running backwards to Mom’s house,
Or was he running away? Ya don’t say!
Maybe he felt trapped all the time
at school, like a Catholic
and at home, BLAH BLAH BLAH
all the time. All the time. All the time.
So then it goes to show how the Bros really know
the Phi Iota Alpha is for all the lost land souls
who know how it is to say hermanO
and be misjudged on your heart and SOUUUULLLL.
Something like trill sounded pretty dope when drug talk
became the new normal of the dudes just chillin’
but at the end of the day I went to St. John’s University
Where Reverend RUN taught me in spirit
to say what I mean and mean what I say
yet at the end of the day I’m just that dude on the corner
spittin’ poetry of the top of the dome kind of like
how Jay-Z raps about respecting the women in his life
and how Kanye West is always mad about being
‘Little Brother Chi-town’ like Joe and Yo kinda sound the same to
a Trilingual’Homme like myself.
OHHHHHH bet you didn’t think I knew about the Frances life huh?
Well certain things happen when you play Rock music,
write about EDM, and have a very Rap constitution mentality.
Something like j’adore Paris rings true to me
but 1st and primero is ‘I Love New York’
It’s a real shame the way people think I can’t play
the Game like I have a pea brain or a dog’s name
But Yo, check this out, I bet you know less
about your Baby Brown or your white Aunt Tess
cause Aunties and Uncles are not more than a
Tia and a Tio, the same way all these languages in my head
make me clutch my mental and say ‘!Ay dios mio!’
It’s such a darn shame how brainwashed ya’ll think I aim
But I’m such a linguist yet I only have internet #fame
So it’s kind of like an emissary illusion. I have to make it real
So I can HEAL my own way. Not your way, my way. That is it.
Sike I’ll just say one last thing – RSM
