lyrics

I take my mind and transfuse it into each line using music to reach the sublime like a Buddhist yes I meditate when I rhyme to see through this fabricated state where most wander clueless don’t stop to ponder the reason why they do this or that season after season staying on the safe path honestly I must admit I did the same in the past but for these last couple years I’ve been straying from the pack switching lanes changing gears never bitching cause it’s clear so many got it worse lives immersed in fear so next time you feel cursed let this verse in your ear realize that your life ain’t that bad compared to boys and girls without a mom or a dad and those across the world getting bombed cause Uncle Sam’s getting mad got no love for Islam cause he don’t understand that the Taliban and ISIS represent Muslims like the Klan represents those made in Christ’s likeness a perceptual crisis ignorance isn’t bliss it’s just one of its disguises so you can’t see the bias acting xenophobic when you think you’re acting pious

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth

Truth I’ll expose it even if it starts a riot step into this booth I cannot remain quiet just came in the game but you know I slay giants name aint David I ain't talking about Goliath it’s Ashir Abouleish but you can call me your highness the best nothing less yes I only spit the finest rhymes hit like a .356 I blow your mind with each line cause no one flows like this and I’m the first to admit I’m the first to admit I got my own unique style I combine the Tigris Amazon and the Nile an unexplained phenomenon yes this song belongs in the X-files

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth


Too complex for the radio to play but I smile anyway cause I won’t dumb it down I stand my ground like Lupe man I do it for hip hop like Luda, Nas, and Jay let the ink drop and put these thoughts on display to cooperate and not compete to stop the hate and spread peace like a Deadhead stay grateful for the bed in which you sleep and the food you have to eat I complained I had no shoes til I met a man who had no feet I complained I had no shoes til I met a man who had no feet

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth
