This EP had to have a through-line. A different approach to the very common title track. I wanted to be honest with myself. The fact that others can relate is a fortunate coincidence


I started writing rhymes in 2001/
Twenty-Fourteen and still ain't done/
Been having fun/
But I had a greater vision in mind/
Rock mics how I like in this critical time/
Destined to shine/
Like a baby face with vaseline/
And you know you it has to be/
A challenger like time that's gon' always wanna battle me/
I'm not gonna fight it/
But I'm not gonna serve it/
I'm spontaneous and too much structure makes me nervous/
& I don't like deadlines, I want mine to live/
So I gotta take the time to provide and give
A strong message/To survive through my tribe and kids/
Wendel and Max be the beat that your vibing with/
Take your time to hear it/
Let my positivity fortify your spirit/
Crafted a portion of this opus without further delay/
No need to put off til' tomorrow cuz' I finished today/
This is the PRELUDE.....
