Pick Me Apart by Knowmads
"I’ll make you prove to me that you was tellin’ the truth
'Cuz kids in the ghetto turn to felons and troops
Either locked in cages or cockin’ gauges
I be watchin’ faces prayin’ to God save us
And I say what I feel
I’m feelin’, sadder than ever from the cloud scattered weather
Or the lack of the treasure
I be actin’ whatever, crackin’ a beverage while I’m rappin to trevor
Never let you discover ‘cuz I’m still undercover
Enough of the sheilds I keep it real
I don’t give a fuck what you think
I’ll let it sink through your heart like a kiss in the dark
Touchin’ my hair while you pick me apart
I used to drink in a park now I’m sittin’ cozy
You don’t know me or the woman that made my soul beat
I hold cold 4-0’s of O.E.
And curse and spit with some stupid homies
While y’all talk politics sippin’ a latte
You be bridging the gap but you missin’ the walkway
I be on the valley floor yellin to churches
Who be fightin’ these wars just to tell me my purpose?
Reason I love Slug and Sage Francis so much is because they’ll come out with dope ass tracks with an incredible play on words and lyrical content, but at their core they’re awesome slam poets that can be just as awesome when they don’t have beats behind them.
Prides Paranoia - Slug
When I can I’m gonna build a castle that touches the clouds, not to get closer to god but to get further from y’all
Stop scrolling. Watch this. Seriously. It’s a cover of Florence + The Machine’s “Shake It Out”, done by a children’s choir, and it’s freaking amazing.
THAT LITTLE BOY’S VOICE THOUGH.
I’ve never been more glad that I watched something. Seriously.
"Listen, our hearts were torn apart just like ya’ll’s was,
Watching towers full of souls fall to sawdust
Everytime we called your office you ignored us
And now you’re holding hearings on us all inside of congress
Microscopes on us, ask if we’re jihadist
