The King Charles Era

The King Charles Era
New sound, new style, still the same loser.

"Moment of honesty..."

 A rare Alicia Keys quote to set off this entry... 


I'm always touched when people acknowledge my music. It makes all the hard work worth it. I'm particularly touched when people acknowledge my 2012-13 music. 

Here's why.

I started doing this thing where I would interpret the beat, as literally as possible. Yes, I was writing in my head A LOT during that time. But I was more into the PRODUCTION side of things. That's where and what I thought the strength was. 

So, I would go through what I went through (be it that day or in general), and make a beat DEEPLY interpreting the day. "Singinthetunewithus Es" from #IAlwaysDieInBrooklyn is the same sample as The Beatnuts "No Escapin' This". At the time of making the beat, I was in a Christian sleep away center called The Dream Center, where I would wait for either Matt or Jeff to do something for my career. Once I realized they just wanted me out of the way, I plotted an escape. Not without a soundtrack, however. 

So yeah. The bars started picking up steam around 2013, when it was reported to me that people liked my off-kilter, Madlib-esque flow. I could've and would've kept it going, but I grew OUTwards instead of upwards. I started taking notes from the mainstream OGs, no matter how clandestine their actions were/are.

I'm glad you're here. Just know that being offbeat requires a music theory knowledge set that VERY FEW have.

Off my soapbox I go...

The solution





What do you do when you feel unappreciated, underwhelmed with life and overwhelmed with ideas?

Create!
Start a blog!
Take pictures!
Video tape EVERYTHING!
Take notes on how boring everyday is.

Make life worth living for YOURSELF! No one is going to make you enjoy life. In fact, people get off to the knowledge of you NOT enjoying life. 


OR...


practice not giving a fuck about shit!.!.!.

It's a healthy practice. You'll feel your load lighten up the less you give a fuck about minuscule details.

Just wanted to share some rebellious wisdom with you.


I'm happy. I get down every so often, but overall, I'm happy. I don't need a reminder of who (or should I say, where) I was, and I love the encouragement to be... who I already am. As you can see, I'm going hard without backup. I'm even supporting an artist or two here and there. I survive it by cutting the fat. Just doing me the whole time.

I'm around. Just wanted to tap in.

Sonic Evolution




There has been much debate about my "dirty leather wallet sound". Some of my lo-fi has been considered hi-fi, and my hi-fi gets degraded to lo-fi. But there is (and always has been) a certain texture to my music. From the grittiness to the melodic sounds in it. Well, after much debate and back and forth with my influence, I have decided to name my sound...




The Game Over Sound



Basically, the music you hear after losing a game. All 3 lives. ...mixed with the life-threatening grooves/chops of the most horrifying tales in music.


It doesn't matter what you think.

It's already over.

Monday the 13th 0fficial lyrics

 

^
^
^
(verse 1)
Does my vulnerability kill you? It's supposed to be humility. Not even posing. Just lyrically imposing. My imposition is to never be lonely. Whether it's a chick to hold me or a spliff with my homies. It could get as OD as Fentanyl. With my problems involved, I give you a kiss on your cheek. Welcome. I don't wanna kiss you goodbye, so I'ma roll this/sip this till I'm by you. You know, like Eve. Regardless, I'm likely who you like this evening. So stand by me. Ben E. King on ANYTHING.

(hook)
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
I'm afraid to be alone.
I'm afraid to be alone...

(verse 2)
Trust and believe, the feeling is justice I need. But as a king, I just need to believe in my justice being the food for the people. No, I'm not rude to the people. When they're rude to me, I behead them. No reason for me to be ahead of them. Not a federal offense, though it should be... spent on some pussy as a pauper. The last few dollars I had. Just like a collar I grab. Still, I gotta be sad. There's people in my kingdom who do not receive blessings. Well, here's the message: never let me see you not be free.

(hook)
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
I'm afraid to be alone.
I'm afraid to be alone...

(verse 3)
I see my target. Graze it. Wait for the day when the hit wasn't "just enough" for them to leave me alone. Then it's straight to the spliff. They get smoked. With hope that they can lead me to a greater ecstacy. A major telepathy event. Let me see if you can vent like me... when you're dead. Next to me is death. On the other side of the chessboard is reason to stress some more. I question the thought. Do I need death and respiration to walk with me? Strangely, I do. Duke and The Prince, dooin his shit!

(hook)
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
Don't let me go.
Don't let me go!
I'm afraid to be alone.
I'm afraid to be alone...

Get well wishes to England's King Charles. I heard he's dying. Never wanna wish death on anyone. Not even my enemies.

Wiped.

My new meds have me WHOOPED. Ask Star Baddie. We were out, and I took my meds on schedule. I was out cold within minutes. So I have to work according to how the meds make me feel. 

The meds got me thinking I'm a better person. I'm conscientiously a better person. Kinder, selfless, more understanding. But I can't make music the way I used to! Granted the content is thicker...

If you've been prescribed meds, stay on them. They do help. Maybe my output was superhuman. I may have bit odd more than I can chew by putting out so much music. Well, if it helped you, it's worth the adjustnent. 

Make my sacrifice worth while!!!
