    left field
    in response to a lil battle online ("387", "farrakan" and "blackman" are all personalities involved in the 'battle' - farrakan called it out, but 387 was winning and the other two were getting agitated), cut this on the double quick, - took longer to post, did it in just under an hour, including graphic...

    >> the fray (mp3)

    you got skills?
    well, it's a commercial
    flowing this and that
    like it's controversial

    a little bit
    of sufferagette
    while i sit back
    take a puff on a cigarette

    smoking
    a french inhale
    a bit of your words
    smell a little bit stale

    but the rich,
    taste and flavor,
    something that we might not yet
    get to savor

    so pathetic
    said 387
    from the front
    of the 7/11

    farrakan?
    what say the blackman?
    was it the cocks
    who said you’re the Man?

    a little white boy
    getting in your face
    complain all you like
    but pick up your bass

    he can't groove
    like peanut butter
    ain't nothing smooth
    you know he's a nutter

    the words come out
    a little bit chunky
    and the bass guitar
    playing funky

    but the jiggle of the jello
    when we all play
    is who can stay mellow
    when we step in the fray

    hey man
    at least you got something to say
    but can you keep your head
    when you step in the fray
     
  2. Under an hour, eh? Very impressive (and prolific!)

    That bass groove is a little freaky...I dig it :)
