What else revs and runs these MCs
Besides irreverent schemes for C.R.E.A.M.?
Is the #AmericanDream for #greed that much of a driving factor?
Do #FastLane stunts rush a need for #speed?
What happened to the Rev Runs and DMCs?...
Forget #BunB, Young Jeez and Lil’ Weez – these cats aren’t the livest #rappers.
They’re contrived, aspirin’ actors –
starvin’ artists tryin’ to eat.
To hide this fracture –
they guard their #bars behind the beats.
But what’s supplyin’ the feed that they’re all plugged into?
Instead of runnin’ the tracks –
they’re the ones that are synthesized.
Instead of stunnin’ with facts –
their stunted acts have criminal ties…
As pitiful, #subliminal lines epitomize the #drugs they Ginsu.
Rather, they’ve drugged us with symbols
from the tracks they cut up –
the devil’s workshop is their idol worship.
They’ve dumbed down and numbed up
the #CriticalMass of the public –
idle minds #flatline as vitals worsen.
Thanks to flat lines and entitled cursin’ – ‘no substance abuse’ is on the rise.
Read between these mindful lines –
I’m not talkin’ about beats and #wordplay.
Real #rap needs to be revitalized –
#HipHop’s been beaten at H.E.R. game…
Who else used to love how H.E.R. worth sang the truth with songs of pride?
But if you look in H.E.R. somber eyes,
they’re bloodshot from these crypt keepers
Who took and shook a songbird confined
to the subplots of these script readers.
Too busy rippin’ speakers as flip bleeders – we need new life transfused.
Rather, we need new blood brought into the system.
Even these young bloods are lame ducks that just walk different…
Have we become so hobbled and indifferent –
can’t we see that new scribes are past due?!!
Rap’s too busy shootin’ up cats as if they’ve been immunized.
All the while, instead of booin’, we’re clappin’
‘cause we’ve been desensitized.
We’ve got minstrel cycles crampin’ the rebirth
of words that were once pregnant with possibilities.
It’s not all bad, though – I know I’m generalizin’
Right in the middle of a pitiful climate
But if I minimalized the chastisement, could you
visualize the predestined probability?... Concluded below: #STEELYourMind#InkWellSpoken#IUsedToLoveHER#poetry
