Fear 03:21
it controls you- it puts you in your place- when you move it's subtle so you don't make mistakes- it steers you- if you can't understand- something unknown might trigger your hatespan- it finds you- all alone then it blinds you- the mind is playing tricks i know you think i'm right behind you- i'm not- but i got- your attention didn't i- changed your perception of soundwaves feel the fear inside my written rhymes- deal with it- impossible obstacles require lots of gull- so stop the bullshitting letting everybody pull you in 50 different directions- your a mess man- take that risk man- life's a bitch (damn) paranoia when ya walk up the block- you don't talk to the cops why it's not like you sell rocks you just feel like you got a lot to lose- well the systems not here to help dude it's here to bruise- choose if you dare- i see that you scared- sh!t me too- but the deuce in the air is what i strive for a crew that truly cares- is not gonna fool me with some stares look at me in the eyes with no disguise and share- take a breath of fresh air- how does a dragon slayer feel in a dragons layer- that's why i say prayers and it's rare that i share- my ways of getting fit for whatever- be prepared- better off dead never that death is promised- fuck what they said don't let it fuck with your conscience- fight or flight- do what's right- at the time- no regrets common sense shouldn't be hard to find- bravery kills mental slavery- that's the way to be but don't take it from me- pave your own path and see for yourself so you need no self-help- obliterate how you felt i put that gun back on that shelf- that was my cue to remain cool (cool)- it's all in the news but i got nothing to prove- now i could move right now and i'd adjust nicely- even if the scene is intense and enticing- no phobias just souly floating at my own speed keeping balance- between giving and greed- i might leave- and take the lead we- really aren't exactly sure of what we can achieve- cause we haven't seen the outcome of that fork in the trail how come- your not a psychic- so just set sail- hit me on the nextell we'll debate the cons and pros- but keep your soul in check- i will not be controlled- by fear- it's not inside my ear this year i'm switching gears in addition to the peers i toast with and share beers- it's the host with the flows that resembles spears (why?) cause one line will get my point across- i'm sharp like shears cut the paper up divide it evenly- business is simple when we're on the same frequency- of course i want cash but everything ain't green to me- yeah he drives a benz but everything ain't what it seems to be- easily is not how it's accessed- when you live your life right- without a devilish accent- you attract it- eventually- your gonna have it so sit back and manage the balance.

Built 03:09
i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2 art reflects life - life reflects art - that's a little bit of wisdom i'ma use it as i start - to spark up the convo. - it's wild like the congo - how i maintain and roll to the same beat - day to day like the bongos - then i be buggin' like gonzo - i gotta get it right like pronto - as if there's no tomorrow im'a borrow some help - from Allah - cause without 'em to be honest i can't do it myself rely on nobody else - snakes be slitherin' sinfully tryin' to orchestrate'cha fate and sabotage your synchronized symphony - since it's left up to me when it's all said and done i pace myself gracefully and give praise - to the one - enjoy the little fun i have until i raise a son - or a daughter - life gets harder the road has just begun - but i'm fresh off the path from the past - with madd forks and traps - so i know how to roll - i won't collapse. i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2 ain't noone stoppin' me but myself - and that ain't happenin' - i'm back again fly like stealth - so what's crackalin' - resilience and brilliance has me surpassin' them buildin' with real than life cats i get cash with them - but that's a chosen few - now that's a golden rule - i demand respect man ya balance is overdue - i learned from older dudes overtime i had to show and prove now i possess enough power to make (boulders move) listen to what they say the code is true - the same girl who wouldn't flirt - she starts taking notice in you - she's hopin' that you can make her life right she wants to shine bright like them city lights but that's bogus and rude - let her stay in the shade - where it's calm and cool - you'll be floatin' across the ocean - makin' power moves - i'll be coastin' across the continent while all you cowards lose - see i try to keep it peace so don't make me devour you. i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2 Credits recorded @ Studio Live beat constructed by The Cratez

about

Raw Proof Nashville, Tennessee

Raw Proof has emerged from the flames as a man in the world but not of it, a Hip-Hop historian who lives in the community but claims no clique. He congregates with preachers, politicians, and the poverty-stricken, while always speaking for, not at, the common man. ... more
