    ded. to Pharoahe Monch, a very talent'd emcee the industry ain't ready for yet..
    you are bless'd brutha, it'll take time, but they'll come around



    you was stray bullet

    fired from Queens
    into the heart of hip hop cliches
    dj's, relay'd your image
    like luminous bat signal to clouds callin'

    you
    through mechanical beats chants

    'cause hip hop's in need of a medicine man,
    the/ Ellington "scat" cat
    who's raps
    were thrown against the backbone..

    of collagin' syllables & beats
    collagin' syllables u beat repetitively pitchin' prose,

    peddlin' flows
    ramblin' rhythms run acoustic, across our eardrums.

    they ain't ready for the original cat, who's
    rhyme schemes
    retired beats
    like wound'd athletes
    and actively changed the sound of rap
    through vocal beat boxin'
    repetition/ DISPENCIN' lyrics
    like PEZ

    you tat2'd taboo into eardrums,

    & put your world
    under our eyelids, & I did
    for a minute.

    see you spit hopscotch
    at hip hop
    & mummify beats
    tomb'd to Egypt
    underground
    like sounds
    bound to death by deaf ears &
    they can't catch yuh versatility..

    'cause lyrically
    you flipp'd deliveries
    chameleon to beats, like background
    adapt'd through speech and rhythm&hitwiththelyricaljisms
    stemmin' syllables through yuh lips
    like vibration from a dragonfly's wings.

    I be eargasm addict
    with habit's hard to kick, so I trip
    'cause hip hop is lackin'.

    I said hip hop's slackin',
    emcees scared to come different.

    Troy they're scared of you
    for bein' different, too.

    Gee -o- vonn-eeh

    Bigg upps to your friend .... this new jack scat cat with lyricaljisms -- as you call them.... I definitely agree, urban hip hop needs to be re-energized with some substantive additions from people on a mission to educate the 3rd eye.... and yes, unfortunately it takes us folks a little bit before we let go of the old and take hold of the new, but tell your friend not to be discouraged....."different is great" too. :D


    Lovedid your spit fire dear!! :wink:

    Always :heart:
