lyrics

9. Who Am I - Feat. Freddie Bruno and Playdough

Who am I a man with a positive plan/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

Maintain Freddie doing the dang thang/ insane rap’s Coltrane the heads bang what we sang/
Hard to move like a grape stain Sivion songbird here to shake your A-frame/
Who got lyrics to go like these?/ And who got lyrics to show MC’s/
How to saddle up ride a beat taking on your whole fleet/ start beef and we’ll serve it up on whole wheat/
No sleep for the weary fury Judah fist/ pugilist with the linguist of a novelist/
Obelisk 9 to 5 worker and a pacifist/ Even wavelab and sound forge couldn’t master this/
Here’s a piece of my heart MC’s got passion for the people like the minister grieves/
Divinity breathes through me like the wind on the leaves/ there’s more than meets the eye homie hope it’s what you receive/

Who am I a man with a positive plan/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

So just stop, it’s my turn to rock the spot/ cuz Deepspace smuggle grace when we’re calling the shots/
Bring this bounty to your block though we’ve never been caught/ we figured out your whole steez like connecting the dots/
There’s so much more to this emcee than just hip hop/ it might shock the hard rocks just to know what we got/
You can drop it in a box it’ll increase your stock price/ got mics don’t forget to check your clock twice/
That’s right I’m so precise though this life I lead will decrease set me free to by Christ-like/
God’s light can illuminate the dark night/ love conquers all even after silly bar fights/
You claim this butterfly’s supposed to be a star right/ gotta make some cheddar ‘fore you ever keep your car tight/
Who am I and open canvas in God’s sight/ hand this vessel to Christ before I rock mics/

Who am I a man with a positive stand/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

Much More, than Grammy’s and cameos with A-Listers I stand below to sit up/
And pay some attention to mention/ spirit gotta grow mine’s inching/
Shine intervention see past the wrong words/ it’s Deepspace singing soul with the songbirds/
Springtime in the meantime see mine fertile while I feed mine hurdles to the seed I circle/
With a blessing and a prayer cuz the testing/ probably come quicker than I’m guessing/
And this is just music begging that we use it right/ so night life see the light when they choose to fight/
Cuz rap words backwards are not the cure/ but black birds sing freedom with the dawn for sure/
So I use a microphone to microscope and tied this rope together as I fly this hope so who am I/
