So, I wrote majority of this EP at Oh’s Crib in the BX for a week in June 08. All I can remember is smoking good, drinking heavily and sleeping on the floor.
Tek flew down from Chi-Town and we knocked out production and song concepts. This was the most intense 7 days I ever had in my life. Working in the city taking that long ass packed ride on the 6 train to the BX. Then to go straight to music mode. It was like being a robot. Great thing about it I never questioned the songs just let em flow. That Saturday night I recorded Poisonous Planet with Jonny On The Rocks.
In the Studio with Jonny On The Rocks
Progressive Studios R.I.P
Soul of the Songs: what was going thru my mothafuckin head when I was writing this shit….
The B.I.G. Oasis Intro…I’m from Bedford Stuyvestant, Brooklyn it’s only right to pay homage.
The Eulogy…I called this the eulogy cuz rap as I know and love is no longer relevant. Which is cool music must evolve but in the right direction. Can’t be Rawkus rappin in 2009 and if you are gonna do something different and new let it be relevant and real.
RIP TO THE 90′s
Robotic Narcotic….I can’t front I was thinking of Jonelle Monae…she was on that sexy android shit so this was my way of trying to holla. Then Dana La Rock blessed it with some sexy cosmo vocals shit is poppin..
A Lovely Hate
….Me and Tek was up all nite listening to Prince Marathon on VH1soul. And we decided we gonna make our own nu-funk type shit.. A lovely hate describes how some niggas front like they want the best for you as long as the best for you does not surpass them. Which is wack.. Then Fresh Daily jumps on the track. shouts to Ron on drums..
…..this song came out the struggle.. I felt like New York can be the roughest, the coldest, bitter city and u must be prepared to weather the storms to survive. Jonny On The Rocks on the hook bodies it… Tek gets it in too.
Rappers Don’t Sing…..labels labels labels….dont box me in I am claustrophobic…feat Bless…Liz caught up with us one drunk night.
$B n Bless
…..First half is produced by Synthesis 2nd half by Tek…Its about rejectin all the “dangerous” things in my life only to discover that I want it. Heart in the right place my mind is somewhere else
searching for the light
…..I was up too late and was bored… I blame ADHD but I never was diagnosed. Called it Distore
cuz I thought of the melody at Dis Store..
….was thinkin about leavin a place only to return stronger features Fresh Daily this negroe bodies it. dope dope dope
