Legend



06/16/2023 Click here for Spotify, Apple Music, or Youtube. “Legend” is my 48th official release. This song is more about the music industry and kind of an introduction to what I have to offer as an artist. My material is more content driven but unlike most of my music, it’s a little repetitive with the hook. The song glimpses my perspective on the music industry. The song was self-recorded but mixed and mastered by KeyAno. The beat is by Tantu and the cover art is made by xoxodesigns from fiverr.


You can see me talk about this blog post from last Sunday’s Update here:



Lyrics:


I just wanted to take the opportunity to be real for a second

Talk about the industry

And how I see it, and what I bring to the table


Here the flow goes with the do-si-do

Not a battle rapper, but I deal some blows

Not a backpack rapper, but I know some flows

Didn’t start as an actor, I’m real like whoa


Feel me yo you should really know

Got knowledge like Nas, David Thoreau

Socrates, Hobbes, Plato

Friedrich Neitzche or Jacque Rousuee


I’m a philosopher, sociologist

That mumble rap isn’t pop’n kid

Understand me and what a got to give

I expand on thoughts like colleges


More like a teacher

Coming through your speaker

Spectacular rapper detracting in beast mode


Hear me in there? What you got?

Word to hip-hop, Big and Pac


Just wanna be a legend, get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page

Have um wil’n’out when this drops at a rave

Eric Leo, Why not? I got what you crave


I’m a scholar, collegiate

My mind is, strategic

My vision, they see it

I got this, they need it


(Scholar, my mind is

they need it, listen)


Another rapper dead from the guns and pills

I guess I got another stiff niche to fill

Self-depreciation the name of the skill

Just a matter of time til their rhymes gon’ kill


Poof, vanish, disappear

Taken by their vices for kids to hear

They say it’s happiness, but really jeer

The industry epitome of puppeteers


I blame executives, for what the wreckage is

Definition of what deception is

Only sign’n acts bout drugs and weapons

Showin women aggression


Tell’n the black boy what to write

Sold his soul and knows the price

Has to rap bout thrills and vice

Then the white boss tells him, “tight”


Wanna be a legend get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page

Have um wil’n’out when this drops at a rave

Eric Leo, Why not? I got what you crave


I’m a scholar, collegiate

My mind is, strategic

My vision, they see it

I got this, they need it


Just wanna be a legend get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page

Have um wil’n’out when this drops at a rave

Eric Leo, Why not? I got what you crave


I’m a scholar, collegiate

My mind is, strategic

My vision, they see it

I got this, they need it


I would like to thank you for listening

I hope you find the virtue of real hip-hop


I just wanted to say


I’m ill with the flow,

Mike Illicit in soul

Bring thrill to ya dome

Too real to be known


Just wanna be a legend get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page

Have um wil’n’out when this drops at a rave

Eric Leo, Why not? I got what you crave


I’m a scholar, collegiate

My mind is, strategic

My vision, they see it

I got this, they need it


I just wanna be a legend get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page

Have um wil’n’out when this drops at a rave

Eric Leo, Why not? I got what you crave


I’m a scholar, collegiate

My mind is, strategic

My vision, they see it

I got this, they need it


Just wanna be a legend get props from the grave

Historical reference when I pop on the page
