Description:

I wrote this one thinking about my past. I reminisced about how I used to walk to and from school everyday zoned out with headphones on listening to my favorite rappers, and now I'm making the kind of music I grew up admiring.

This was one of the first beats I made on FL Studio, after previously cutting everything (drums, samples and all) and sequencing them on Adobe Audition manually.

Lyrics:

Verse 1:

It was back in the day walking home from school
After learning rules and all the necessary tools that I
First picked up a walkman, Kris-Krossin'
Jump-jumpin to the House of Pain and Snoop Dogg, and

Down the streets of Garfield, N-E-W Jerz
With a bob to my head as my eardrums burned
Volume to the max, relaxin', passive in a state of passion
Walkin', never talkin', always state of mind in action

Picture me in Queens in a New York State of Mind
As Nas escaped the building lobby, see it in my mind's eye
I could see it dual-screened, Biggie talkin to Pop from the barber shop
Talkin' plots to pop him from his spot

And like, cash rules everythin around me, cream get the money!
Funny, how the Wu taught me morals that would run me
Worship God, never the mighty dollar
Poppin collars, or hollarin was never a topic of my logic

But, Survival of the Fit, only the strong survive
As time goes by, an Eye for an Eye, your beef is mine
M-O-B-B, D double E P
Taught me to care for my peeps and how wild are the streets

I owe it all to one of God's biggest blessings to me
Destined to be, the biggest influence impressive to me
Strollin down the streets with my headphones on
Always keep in mind I was defined by how the gods rhymed on

Hook:

Funky beats and lyrics trippin' on this music biz
Seein' and feelin' the illest rhythms that you're hearin' through your ear and shit
Pictures in your mind, Play, Stop, Rewind
Rhymes display life in their own space and time

Funky beats and lyrics trippin' on this music biz
Seein' and feelin' the illest rhythms that you're hearin' through your ear and shit
Pictures in your mind, Play, Stop, Rewind
Rhymes display life in their own space and time

Verse 2:

I remember the times of S-N Double O-P
West coast flow was the steez, and Dr. Dre on the beats
Hearin' Serial Killas and drug dealers, one lives or dies
With his mind on his money and his money on his mind

Music brings me to a world that is different from my life
Line for line, I recreate the world with a new design
Tones out headphones, through my earlobes and in my mind
I live crime to survive, or live a poet analyzing rhyme

Learnin' multi-syllable divisible lyrical techniques
Masterin' patterns of shatterin' casual rhyme schemes
Use the mechanics of Canibus on 2K BC
Plus poetic aesthetics of Nas's creativity

Flow on a beat break, beat shakes the ground
With some scratches by Premo, key notes of sound
Strollin down the streets with my headphones on
Always keep in mind I was defined by how the gods rhymed on

(Hook)

Verse 3:

Not too many years later, times have changed and so have I
Still rockin' the volume high, walkin' like I was hypnotized
But no longer in G-Field but in college in NY
I still hit stop and rewind when I hear a hot line

It all started when I was ten, headphones on a little kid
Hearin' lyricisms, makin' pictures in my head and shit
Now I'm givin' y'all pictures of my own for y'all to see
Though I could never influence an audience the way they did to me

And everybody knows it ain't gotta be rap
Whether it's heavy metal, classical, rock, country or jazz
When the music moves you, your emotions will change
Rearrange your disposition, bring a smile to your face

Same way I was moved to move thoughts through supersonic
I'll plague you like bubonic, and shake you like tectonic
The very first words to my very first verse
And I'll keep spittin' verse through my life, and life through my verse

And I thank the almighty God, and every single one of those
Who showed their universe through written verse for a form of prose
Strollin' down the streets with my headphones on
Play, stop, rewind if you're feelin' what I'm sayin' in this song

(Hook 2x)
