this is another one of my collaborations with my self.

give my soul to art

(unknown soldier)
This gangsta rap is a conundrum
“Real niggas” claiming their guns sung
But it’s our kids making sure that their funds come
So they turn into role models as we become undone
Trying to get my people to come up
Our society’s summed up
By hustlers pushing work from sun down to sun up
Death’s indecisive like a gladiator waiting for the thumbs down or thumbs up
Stick up kids hold the gun to you when they run up
Itching to take the grip from your fingers
Putting Death’s kiss to your lips and it lingers
And ghetto birds give more vocals than singers
We turn into ringers as we try to bring a
Release from this captivity
I rap vividly to bring hope to kids who laugh timidly
Growing up solemn
Nothing but problems
So at age 16 he’s hitting rock bottom
Now he’s gone and forgotten
Because either the cops got him
Or them brothers on the block shot him
Decomposing in somebody’s trunk or locked in a cell rotting
Our way of life is rapidly toppling…

And I’m on corners pop locking and beat boxing
Lasting 15 rounds so I gotta keep boxing
At Opportunity’s door and I’m a keep knocking
Til that bitch opens and I win the grand prize in game tokens
The lames are hoping that they’ll get up and walk
Cuz the money and fame left em broken until they’re on the pavement outlined in chalk
The haters, they talk
And words break bones
Leaving tooth-marks on your skin from the bite of their bark
Emerging from shadows to attack from the dark
Rusting Iron Men like Tony Stark
To get to your flesh and tear out your phony heart
Trying to bring fire when I only spark
And those resistant to the flames will be there to tear your bones apart
Giving my all from close to start
Hip hop needs life
So in death I’m prepared to give my soul to art

  i wish i could collaborate with myself lol. This was cool though. Damn it's been a minute since i've commented something you wrote. But yea i can tell how much you've grown as a rapper from when i first came to this site till now. I think we all have.

  the insight was on point. you describe the world today with the same points of view that i can relate too and recognize. The ending lines were sick...

Nice read and drop..

keep it up

  Well, well well...this wasvery good. Your lyrics seem more mature these days and speak alot more about what goes on in the world. I liked the first part better, because you were more focused on speaking truth and not standing out with mad rhymes as in the second one. Although, I did like the first few lines to your alter ego. Good flow and very creative with the metaphors. Way to go Candyman!
