SARCASM; the cousin of Life


Now that I’m older, here’s what I’ve discovered: I started out with nothing and I still have most of it. Funny how we are born naked, wet, and hungry…then things get worse. By now if u aint getting the sarcasm you are the one who laughs last, why? Cause you think slowest. Just think about it…as you grow older and get your head together, your body starts falling apart. People blame it on abuse of drugs. I beg to differ, anything – however good it is, if abused – abuses you in equal measure or even worse. E.g. Eat a lot, you get obese; over speed, probably die.. I used to think as we progress in life we get wiser, wrong. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser…I have come to realize. (REF: Nas & Damien Marley – Patience). I found out things get thicker. It’s inevitable, you Eat Right, Exercise, you will Die anyway.

These are the reasons that make me live my life like Rihanna and follow Karma. Well, not always since Karma screws us all in one way or the other. Errors have been made. Others will be blamed. Take note of the tenses. And as if it doesn’t sound right, for your info. It started with Adam & Steve, oops… what’s the name of that chic who screwd us all at that Garden? I forgot. Someone told me the guy who wrote the Bible is the same one who said the earth is flat…I won’t even comment on that. But guess what? All reports are in. Life is now officially unfair, and we are made to suffer for sins committed by people we don’t even know. This is why upto now; when I thought I wanted a career, it turns out I just wanted paychecks. I pretend to work, and they pay me. I work, they pay me peanuts. The trouble with work is – it’s so daily, bureaucratic and unfair just like life itself.

Macho Law prohibits me from admitting I’m wrong. So when I tell you to fuck off, Okay, okay, I’ll take it back! UnFuck you! Life is a cycle and we just keep peddling…wait does that sound like a rap verse? Get problems now, they’ll return at the spin of the cycle. Funny, uh? The positive fact however is, “Always remember you’re unique, just like everyone else…hehe!” Don’t be cheated, even the rich ones have problems at their scale. And is it just me or adults are just kids who owe money? Just when I thought I found a job and will be independent, is when parents demand their returns on investment – your earnings. Scientists say 1 out of every 4 people are crazy. Check 3 friends, if they are OK, you’re it. Just like me.
What’s my point, LIFE’S CRAZY, SATIRICAL & SARCASTIC.

Distant Relatives Album


Mahn..I’ve been waiting for his album like forever. It was so hyped and thankfully it has lived up to expectations. I’m not a fan of albums but this one will add to my shelf including…. Da carter 3, Blueprint1, 3, God’s son, Chicken & Beer, The chronic, ILLMATIC, Graduation/Late registration, Ready to Die, Me against the world and Reasonable doubt….etc. I listen to every song every single day on this album, bu i would like to single out “In his own words, friends and leaders” as great-must-listen-to tracks …… However, Patience kills them all….with Jr. Gong completely outdoing NAS!!!<3

Some of the smartest dummies
Can't read the language of Egyptian mummies
An' a fly go a moon
And can't find food for the starving tummies
Pay no mind to the youths
Cause it's not like the future depends on it
But save the animals in the zoo
Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money
This is how the media pillages
On the TV the picture is
Savages in villages
And the scientist still can't explain the pyramids, huh
Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
Stereotyping the image of the images
And this is what the image is
You buy a khaki pants
And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
An' a thief out gold and thief out the scrolls and even the buried bones
Some of the worst paparazzis I've ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see
And that's all they will ever show
So the ones in the west
Will never move east
And feel like they could be at home
Dem get tricked by the beast
But a where dem ago flee when the monster is fully grown?
Solomonic linage whe dem still can't defeat and them coulda never clone
My spiritual DNA that print in my soul and I will forever Own Lord

Huh, we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
Can you read thoughts? can you read palms?
Huh, can you predict the future? can you see storms, coming?
The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh
The average man can't prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of
And still won't research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of
Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they're smart and cunning
Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that's when their nose start running
And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud
Can you read signs? can you read stars?
Can you make peace? can you fight war?
Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? huh
Can you survive, Against All Odds, Now?

Who wrote the Bible? Who wrote the Qur'an?
And was it a lightning storm
That gave birth to the earth
And then dinosaurs were born? damn
Who made up words? who made up numbers?
And what kind of spell is mankind under?
Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
Microwaved it and try it
No matter what we'll survive it
What's hu? what's man? what's human?
Anything along the land we consuming
Eatin', deletin', ruin
Trying to get paper
Gotta have land, gotta have acres
So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
Watch niggas play the game like the lakers
In a world full of 52 fakers
Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers
You superstitious? throw salt over your shoulders
Make a wish for the day cuz
Like somebody got a doll of me
Stickin' needles in my arteries
But I can't feel it
Sometimes it's like 'pardon me, but I got a real big spirit'
I'm fearless…. I'm fearless
Don't you try and grab hold of my soul
It's like a military soldier since seven years old
I held real dead bodies in my arms
Felt their body turn cold, oh
Why we born in the first place
If this is how we gotta go?
Damn.
