about

BBS ASCII modem LHARC ARJ algorithm nerd PKZIP binary transfer nerd NO CARRIER. It’s a mission statement – not so much for the album, as such, but for my life: be the best, and say so.

lyrics

Hi, it's me again – just saying thanks for supporting with your purchase or download; that's not really important. If you're flipping the dial and just stopped for a second, let me slip in while I've got your attention. In the world of rap, you could say I'm hoeing a lonely row, 'cause I got respect for women and hate religion and homophobes.
This year, my postal codes have started with B, K, and T. I went from three jobs to just being an MC and beatmaker - not a cheapskate or someone who lacks a handle, I'd just rather drop the cheesecake on my own wax to sample.
And that's the candle I hold to the old masterstrokes, to cast and mould myself to match the passion that the past provokes.
I've never won a battle. I've sold a couple thousand CD's. My video's cute, but you won't see it on TV. Believe me, I don't need to be too conceited. I just believe in myself, like Jesus joined Jews for Jesus. Who's elitist? That's news to me! I just choose to be this dude who speaks his views on the truth how he sees it, using beats and rhymes to seek some peace of mind and give you a piece of his mind to freeze in time.
Now come with me, it'll be just fine.
