    This is just a little keystyle I just did. I really wanted to write it down but i've just been on a big writers block lately. It's not quite finished either. I wanted to speak on alot more issues...I just couldnt finish it off..Honest opinions please... Honest opinions please


    i'm part of
    a hopeless
    cause...
    tip toe'n behind
    my dreams...
    i accidentally lost...
    when i really
    lost god...
    part of an generation
    that's has been
    brain washed...
    "they" wont even let me listen
    to tupac or nas...
    "they" know
    hiphop...
    "they" think only metaphors and
    similes...
    make a great
    emcee...
    they ridicule
    me...
    because i'm a cawntry boy
    from tennessee...
    they say my people ruined
    the industry...
    with our cotton heads and
    gold teeth...
    they wasnt
    listening...
    when little brother was
    speaking free...ly
    they said we
    slow...
    and like to call our
    women hoes...
    put them in uncut
    videos...
    spreadin their legs and
    working a pole...
    i knew one and she was
    from new york...
    and hated the way the ****** up there
    treated her...
    "they" said it's just a southern thing
    it's really universal...
    "they" hate the way we use
    certain words...
    "they" hate my country
    slur...
    "they" hate the way we substituted
    "there" for "thurr"...
    "they think we glorified the
    ****...
    it's just the way we
    speak it...
    nelly didnt invent
    it...
    and it isnt just
    midwest...
    it's been around before you were the
    little secret...
    inside of your mother's
    cervix...
    i'm sorry but I dont see the point
    in a spinnin
    necklace...
    or creating an imagine
    behind a bullet proof
    vest...
    or disregardin the thump
    under my chest...

    controversy is my reason
    for writing this...
    they say a southern man doesnt know
    his music...
    memphis and new orleans
    birth the basics...
    that hiphop soley
    depends on...
    and i can keep going
    on...

    but nobody listens to
    the southern song....



    hopefully something will inspire me again to finish this ****...

    Hmmmmmm

    i'm part of
    a hopeless
    cause...

    You know I sometimes feel the same way too. I'm from the south, not too far from you in Arkansas, and I have trouble understanding MY purpose for being here sometimes.We just have to learn to love and encourage and uplift eacother up. As far as controversy, it will always be if people don't start opening their eyes to reality.


    I loved this floE. I lQQk forward to the finished work :)

    well...Brother...you know I love your work...
    finished or unfinished...
    the perspective you bring...needs to be heard
    because the "southern/country culture"...has been exploited
    and paraded in a light that isn't completely accurate
    or favorable...
    so continue to enlighten...I hope your inspiration to
    finish this piece comes soon...as a matter of fact
    I could see this as a series...an epic piece
    because there are so many elements that
    can be built upon...
    all I can say is that I will be waiting for you
    to shine the light...from your poetic lighthouse
    and bring the misconception of
    ~Southern Cawntry (Country)~ to shore...

    Just flow it as you know it, and someone else is bound to feel it, because it is real.
