    Everytime i pick up a pen and write a line
    i pray it's the dopest
    the cuts they play on the radio don't sound a lot like mine
    but they paid-so it's hard to keep focus
    been doin this a long time and i'm ready to come up
    yeah, it's a fact
    i have always looked up to cats that smell death in the streets
    it don't seem like nothin to me
    that somebody would rob you for your throwback
    and them rings, that beepa, and them sneakas on yo feet
    Jon(joan), i ain't no racist but i'm pro-Black
    still i admire the Italians
    Mafia, the Mob, the killa crews that ride the roads like Stallions
    slangin and makin hits ain't really my job
    but it really is when i think higha
    to have the betta things and to put my family in a betta place
    is my main desire
    i got morals and won't fall victim to just doing anything
    but see some doubts are fatal
    i gotta reach my dreams, by any means i'm able
    we was walkin the high beam in the pre-natal
    fantasy lives in the mainstream
    i see demons, djinn, and odd-beings while i'm watchin cable
    it's funny huh?--but humor me
    it's a thin line between fact and fiction
    when you give birth to a thought
    to reality it becomes a new edition
    vary superstition
    Allah sometimes i weigh the Quaran and Bible
    true, i believe in you
    but it's hard to hold it all
    comparin my life to the past
    and when i got questions, i'm answered in riddles
    just be confusin my ***
    so my beliefs is mis-matched
    my every reason, for pleasin you
    will there ever peace?..don't even want to ask
    sometimes the pain get so bad
    i hope to die
    but you brought me through the last time
    i guess it's still somethin for me to do
    gotta stay tru
    keep pushin this pen on my pad

    RAW , HONEST AND HARD CORE!

    I proceeded with caution as I gazed over your page,
    couldn't help for a moment to feel a mother's inner rage.
    To proclaim your adoration to the Mafioso, the MOB...
    I am waiting to hear your creative input about brother's
    on the job...The warriors of everyday..."By any means?"
    You say...But I see beneath an artist struggling to find
    purpose and peace within, through a mind still growing
    and a pen strongly flowing...In the end I sigh cause I
    know..."YOU BE AWRIGHT!"

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE! :hot: :hot: :hot:

    baby don't even let them studio poets get beside you. The real is within the real in you. keep it coming. To been seen is just mainly seeing yourself. Don't idealize studio poet.

    sweet flow

    This is tight as anything I hear on the radio, if not tighter. I agree with the others - be yourself and do your thang. But keep trying, too. Never give up.
