You know how I do. It's been about a month, so it's about that time to hit you with something new. Although, with all the saxophoning, singing, and instrumentation I've been doing lately; I thought it'd be best to let the next public heater be a good old-fashioned boom-bap beats and raps cut for my core fan-base -- the true blue underground hip hop heads.
Enter: "Unfamous Mindframe." You've seen it on events, you've heard it on records, you've even seen the logo on merchandise. On this, my second collaboration with ABQ-based producer Diles, I decided to take some time to explain what exactly "UNFAMOUS" means. For those that haven't gotten it up until now, this is the song that will open your eyes, ears, and mind to the UNFAMOUS movement, and why you should be involved.
In addition to all the goodness in it, what pure rap song is complete without a visit from my favorite DJ, The OG Daze Uno? Press play and turn the speakers up, this one's going to knoc your socs off.
LYRICS
My mindframe is UNFAMOUS
It's not a label, it's a lifestyle, language,
and love for music not that lack-luster lameness
It's not exclusive, any open mind can claim this
It's a movement, new improved knit
fabric woven holding golden intent
Indent the game and bent the frame
Started with The Gallery, and then became
the underground definitive, the indie blueprint
We found the limit, then we simply moved it
It's in me, dude it's the source of greatness
Undeniable, and of course UNFAMOUS
You like, "Don't forget us when you blow up!"
Then you forget my shows and never show up
So you know what?
I'll never forget the effort made to support my endeavors
It's just like karma: You get what you give
You're writing the future within the script that you live
Inviting my troopers and friends to kick it and hang, 'cause
they still showed love when I was just UNFAMOUS
We don't do hype, we don't do trends
We don't feel like the means should bend for ends
And we kept the friends that actually know us
instead of dissing them for Yes-Men that practically blow us
Some of yawl are trying to re-write history
how you went from what you were to how you are is a mystery
Abandoned values you was taught when you came up
You lame, cuz - you'd never make it UNFAMOUS
'Nuff respect to all the artists in here
None object that this the hardest career
But unlike most, it wasn't a choice
It's the only thing you know, and so you trust in your voice
But you speak from the soul, you speak from the heart
Hard to reach are your goals when you're speaking through art
Most don't understand it all the same
just maintain and be you, stay UNFAMOUS
My mindframe is UNFAMOUS
It's not a label, it's a lifestyle, language,
and love for music not that lack-luster lameness
It's not exclusive, any open mind can claim this
UNFAMOUS
