about

If you want it, go get it is the motto of those who take action. Following 2015's "Just Fresh" which was more of a compilation, this album feels much more cohesive and complete. Raze Brooks comes thru with some classic yet highly fresh and relevant hip-hop production, while Doc Oscify drops a stream of razor-sharp bars that paint incredibly vivid pictures out of the dense verbiage and elastic inflections. This is the way hip-hop should be in 2018.

Track Name: Brand New
Ever since I saw through
I been feeling so new
It's the same old thing
I just do what I do
Sometimes they walk by
and don't have but a clue
It's the same old thing,
I just do what I do

Time it walks by with the seasons
And I can see that my time is fleeting
and feeding my mind is the rhyme and reason
And the drum keeps beating
I compete for the kingdom
gunslinging and rope swinging
swashbuckling and folksinging
And I present em with a little bit of venom in the event of the vision if the memory is vivid
and it is written in a riddle in a literal position
pick it up and let it go you know I'm on a mission
fixing it up so habitual with it
And there's no quitting as if there's no limit
why even start it up if you don't finish
You know what I mean, if you want it go get it

I just, I just, I just, I just do what I do

Got me feeling
you got me feeling
you got me feeling
feeling so brand new
Got me feeling
you got me feeling
you got me feeling

Time it walks by with the seasons
So I put my time in thinking
and feeding my mind is the rhyme and reason
and the sun keeps creeping
into the completion of the evening
fun bringing and smoke ringing
swashbuckling and folksinging
In a minute medicine for the symptom
be smart, don't be a simpleton
and it is written in the middle of a sentence
between the lines, so it couldn't be defined
then he realized he was high
doesn't matter cause he still remembered why
why even start it up if you don't finish
You know what I mean, if you want it to go get it

And the sun keeps creeping to the completion of the evening

ever, Ever since I saw through
I been feeling so new
It's the same old thing
I just do what I do
Sometimes they walk by
and don't have but a clue
It's the same old thing,
I just do what I do

Got me feeling
you got me feeling
you got me feeling
feeling so brand new
Got me feeling
you got me feeling
you got me feeling
Track Name: Food for the Soul (Comida)
Oscify and Raze Brooks
dropping smooth rhythm and poetry with great hooks
I know a few spots you can learn stuff that ain't books
and often times it might be the last place you would look
crikey / used to be a punk rocker / with my hair spikey
as I aged / my perspective changed slightly
Results of these experiments / varied widely
occasionally content to put it all behind me
many caught inside of electronic devices
technology is the new drug try this
what would this be if we took our minds and applied them
everlasting oneness realize it
fast feeding ya mass media
grass greener stuff and they eat it up
shallow types could never plant deep enough
too official with the superficial piece of us

food for the soul
yes we got comida
and you know that we're not done either
stupid flow you can drop the beat to
so suitable for the boombox speaker

soliloquy solipsis solar eclipses
feel lucky like you won a golden ticket
straight up if it ain't broken don't fix it
spread the tablecloth its the same old picnic
unstoppable victory improbable
not the first time we've gotten stoned
listening to rock and roll
before you lock and load, there's a few things you oughtta know
for example, make sure a hermit crab doesn't got your toe
awesome yo / just found a 20 in my pocket fold
shake some pennies in a jar its a copper tone
got the equipt meant and the proper clothes
when its bitter cold and its time to walk in snow
breathe out you can see the vapor
creator cut and paste and i'm a freak of nature
fly me to the moon so i can see the crater
refuse to be controlled by a worthless piece of paper

food for the soul
yes we got comida
and you know that we're not done either
stupid flow you can drop the beat to
so suitable for the boombox speaker

yes its evident we represent the excellent
epigenetic tampering on a level unsettling
edge of the measurement careful of WHERE you meddle in
and how can one be certain of everything that's ever been\
logical psychic delicacy on time chronical
kick it off AND get my mind on a roll
rather be at a rock show than on a talk show
reason being we enjoy the seasoning on the taco
down the / velvet alley
who's counting / or really there to tell the tally
seeing there's a bounty or else leave me where you found me
circuits need rerouting too tightly they wound me
found a solace in a moment when a song could help us grow up
new tracks soon became the bootstraps we pulled up
whodathunk how such a cold cut could mold us
hip-hop took over the world did you notice?

food for the soul
yes we got comida
and you know that we're not done either
stupid flow you can drop the beat to
so suitable for the boombox speaker
Track Name: Martial Lane
All Had a Part to Play, Walking along Martial Lane
Call him crazy, you can say he maybe lost the Marbles, mang
But I guess when you break it down, we're sorta all insane;
You are what you eat, so be mindful of what your thoughts became;
007, it's the do or die, superspy;
And your life is whatever you define;
a product from within the construct of the human mind;
The glue that binds are the commonalities as we move in time
I remember hawks circling over railyards;
Open fields replaced by boxes for the millionaires
Cherish every moment, cause its gonna change, you know it;
The way the paper folded into an airplane, you could throw it
Floating above it with a bird's eye view;
Unforgettable like its the first time through;
Could never duplicate it with the words I drew;
But still searching for some purpose in the work I do:

It's been a long time coming, we should realize that;
It is what it is if you see it like that
It's been a long time coming;
They wanted to get it done and then it's on to the next and we'll be right back

It's the return of the arrival;
Turnkey file with certainty in the style
Ashes smoldering in a burning pile;
"Sure hot", its the first thought when they heard this style;
build something new, it's really up to you;
Gotta keep it moving, can't get too comfortable;
And everything is practice;
As we rose above it all like we're staring at an atlas
Strength training with no complaining;
Amber grains waving as if in a stained glass painting;
Resonating on a cellular level like a bell curve bevel;
Uphill ride, it's why we still pedal;
Distance became irrelevant, no need for embellishment
Suddenly found themselves afflicted with many different wellnesses;
And still waters will ripple when another drop fell in it;
Back again, with new shit in development;

It's been a long time coming, we should realize that;
It is what it is if you see it like that
It's been a long time coming;
They wanted to get it done and then it's on to the next and we'll be right back

Self-motivated, can't be overstated;
Pyroclastic, vinyl-plastic, flow is volcanic
So set up, go get it, there's no waiting;
So you know you made it before it gets gold plated;
I try to see what I believe inside a dream
When I conceive it like the pieces in every puzzle you meet
Very wonderful things exceeded the lines of reason
Staring up at me something was buried underneath it;
Crunch of gravel beneath his feet heard a second set of footsteps;
nobody behind him when he turned around to look at it;
Looking for a chance to plant an arrow in the beast
The drums and the fire and the smell of the feast
Giving em what they want cause we got what they need;
Os on the mic, Raze Brooks on the beat

It's been a long time coming, we should realize that;
It is what it is if you see it like that
It's been a long time coming;
They wanted to get it done and then it's on to the next and we'll be right back
Track Name: Ramblin'
so specific take a swim in the pacifico
live as an individual
visual of the centerfold
right again get your vitamins and minerals
listen to rap shit bad kids
all you get is coal
some insist to see life so mechanical
the violin was little though so what can you do
roll the dice take the spot on the board that you landed on
off you go give it a push like a domino
abominable rhyme with the flow claw for the gold
rock and roll pot in the bowl I'm in the zone
yall shoulda known 2 dogs and one bone could not get along
if only we could go back with a wave of the wand
pioneer made my own trail, blazing along
not the first or the last time os and raze on a song
coming with deep cuts like a blade to the palm
clear my head from the cloud watch it fade til it's gone

ramble all night
I know we be alright
damn slow that time flies
don't let it walk by

Mr. medical headed up to level 2
how to comprehend me when I'm doing things you never do
served hot Sherlock get a clue
shits not for little kids like a petting zoo
cranium wait you're THE brainy one
how he s-s-stutter sound so insanely dumb
artist self-portrait regardless what the paintings of
so many of us spend our lives chasing love
kill or be killed I put the beef on the grill
on a live set, I dissect the beat with the skill
start feeling funny like you've eaten a pill
sometimes you gotta separate seaweed from the krill
still keeping it real decent
try to categorize my mind but they only get a piece of it
mean it when you say it, say it like you mean it
top quality only / we don't want no cheap shit

ramble all night
I know we be alright
damn slow that time flies
don't let it walk by

extra effort made it better than the predecessor
play it like its chess or checkers
taste the effervescence
freshness hot off the presses
happy as long as I'm spinning records
mind blown nothing but a dial tone
my how we've grown honey I am home
stand up for the jazz funk
probably gotta look in my eyes like I'm stoned
does it even matter I don't know
i see a / bright idea / light bulb
more truth in it / orange juice with the high pulp
examination put it under the microscope
vivid dreams and visions
olive trees and pigeons
culture of commitment where the sculpture was commisioned
no fear over here / don't be a chicken
wondering which came first, the fusion or the fission

ramble all night
i know weLL be alright
damn slow that time flies
don't let it walk by
Track Name: Society
Its a wheel and it never stops turning
how can I integrate with everything that I see
cause I'm never late but
whenever I wake up
the world is already moving around me
Society is like a cut and paste collage
uniforms and costumes we all got one on
beautiful mind to look upon the line to hook you on
you know the way here today tomorrow gone
environmentalist on the list of my interest
some never got famous decided to be infamous
Thought it was really something 'til he pushed the last button
100 years later the subject of class discussions
That holy diver was no Macgyver
Bear on, Shere Khan was Mowgli's tiger
like you're trying to smoke but there's no lighter
be quiet this guy enjoys the sound of his own saliva

Cuz I'm a purple prince
so I hit em with the verbal drip
you couldn't stop the flow
even with a flipping tourniquet
to those that don't know
you really got to learn it quick
I blend it all together for your health like an herbalist
I serve em with 4 courses plus the hot sauce
and everywhere we visit people treating us like rockstars
seed started small add some water then it got large
cuz killing hip hop this hard is basically a lost art
carved in bark like initials in a heart
without the initial spark, no fire can start
put it all together just to take it all apart
situated to demonstrate it with a bar graph or a pie chart
wind up, time to light your mind up
fly as fuck rivals grind em into dust
driving with the clutch requires the right touch
try to do it like us?
haha that's a nice one

Grandfathered in
sick of the damn politics
people thinking television really showing how it is
Feeling nostalgic every now and then
everyone wanna hear that vintage sound again
we got the authority to start a block party
what things will be revealed in the rock carving
have we even started yet? not hardly
Influenced by Hendrix and Bob Marley
fell from the top down into the jello shots
and me her were stuck together like velcro
settle into the sediment like a megalith
that's a heavy lift yes it is hello
I'm either leaving on the next train or a jet plane
depending on what's in season no need to explain
often be thinking with the left brain get a head pain
please just say what you mean and mean what you say
Track Name: '93
finally, I can see like its 1993
just a young kid playing hide and seek
riding BMX already emceeing
thinking about those times like visiting a museum
what is time anyway many days
spent em in a haze getting blazed and tipping trays
spit a phrase sing a praise to mother natsh
helpfulness heritage and honor its another h
never found my place til I put my anger to the page
took a while longer to learn how to lose my rage
want to know what happens next so they turn the page
same old stuff different play different stage
calculon
trying to see her outline even though the towel was on
strategy is how its done
what is a king with no queen, bishop, knight, rook,
and without a pawn

this is how we chill specialties on the grill
you know how they say every song is about a girl
and I still love her but I must keep trekking
since prepubescence trying to do a deep inflection
did I think I'd be a rapper today? forget it
I can't pretend to know which direction this is headed
not much can be accomplished through worrying and fretfulness
so I focus down so I can get this needle threaded
so aware i don't compare to the golden era
inspire folks from the Midlands area to America
you can never reach the stars if you don't dare to
twirling fingers in her hair, through nerd glasses she stared up
all she wrote, one look and she got the vote
warm it right up, take off the coat
the mission might not float if you don't get on the boat
and I'm a stay on my road til I'm old

til I'm 93

looking back before I was cooking tracks
I gotta be glad, took the good with the bad
that's the breaks but I learned from my mistakes
broke the mold my earth was a different type of clay
baseball in a vacant lot
nowadays that old field is replaced by an expensive box
what would it be like to go back in time and pick the locks
tell em to kick rocks go listen to hip hop
and even though its a test we must live with no regrets
the sun sank behind the hills as the shadows slowly crept
somehow when you hear it you just know its fresh
and I and that bull isn't gonna mesh
feeling kinda sore so I climbed ashore
seen a lot come and go
say they don't want to rhyme no more
but I guess you shouldn't do it
if you feel that it's like a chore
i don't know i guess we'll see what's in store for 94
Track Name: Life Liberty
Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory

Incorruptible ideology
remedy for the malady
Indestructible, looking down the alleyway
so many lost no one ever showed em how to be
close your eyes and count to 3 no surprise amount to me
so many variables in the spectrum of nature
choose your own adventure within the suspenseful caper
trees for the forest they try to harvest the whole acre
dough for the bakers they wanna roll but there's no papers
independent thought
just give it a shot
heard around the world cross the latitude and longitude
so many hurdles to autonomy
yet we make the zombies flee
hit em with the agents to chemically induce rot
so come and listen to the decomposition
these aspects of duality dictate the spot we're in and
I'm swimming
50,000 leagues
I don't know how else to explain I'm on a mission

Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy
Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy

The bells ring, what's heaven to a hellion
its long been said rock and roll's the music of rebellion
a tool of the elect designed to fracture family structures
the same with subversive literature pornography and television
they use war as a distraction to elicit a reaction
your spinning wheels wondering why you can't get traction
give it all with the purpose and the passion
cause life is so much more than the purchases and fashion
fresh air never tasted so sweet
sunshine never felt so nice
than after relief from the selfish hold of vice
no more lonely prisoner than he trapped in his own device
cold as ice
go ahead and dive in long as you know the price
fate versus free will changes debate over good versus evil
the creative well must be occasionally refilled
after the cataclysm, the first thing they did is rebuild
It's the main reason we exist in this dream still

Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy
Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy


All people everywhere deserve human dignity
as the fallen ones perpetuated the culture of iniquity
but be careful not to stare too long into the abyss we see
at the end of the day, living keeps continuing
it's not over yet, don't be so upset that you can't think
if you want it, go get it
we did what we did in the end, no regrets
but we'd be foolish not to learn from the missteps
each has its own struggles its how we learn from one another
what do you think we experience the feeling of love for
the river rushes over the rocks as the rapids produce an uproar
each water drop a small component
brilliant voices in a chorus
they go with the flow of gravity
and so do we out of habit see
release the arrow so tight it flies into the bullseye
dandelion seed scattering I ask them will you stand with me
before applying full sight must remove the beam from our own eye

Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy
Life liberty pursuit of happiness and victory
deeply cologned sepia toned it must be history
twisting between cerebral folds that exist within our memory
got to be worth it if I'm giving it my energy
Track Name: Crack the Code
WHy oh why
can't they make it easy
ride all night til I'm back home
try and try
still you gotta tease me
a guessing game till we crack the code

I got that dub boom bap new rap its too tragic
for the dumb fools who can't understand it
fuck who's asking
I'm a get my wheels but this time I got traction
keeping it real little scruffy fuck fashion
before the cash came in the fast lane I brush past em
rolling with a type of flow to make em rappers quit relaxing
got a lotta shit like a laxative
oscar the grouch muthafuckaz chilling in the trash bin
I'm a slash dem prices rhymes remain elastic
with a dry sense of humor, you gon probably need some chapstick
74 locks on the door you heard the latch click
keys on the other side, please let me back in
strike the sulfur then he lit the matchstick
so smooth watch him do it like magic
count it up and stack it like a bad habit
on a need to know for the secret code to crack it

WHy oh why
can't they make it easy
ride all night til I'm back home
try and try
still you gotta tease me
a guessing game till we crack the code

enigmatic esoteric stare as if in a trances
another man of action stuck in traffic
skillz you can have it if you master it thru practice
used items no returns or refunds sell it as is
telegraph email telephones and faxes
the world is a stage we are but actors
looking at me weird cause I'm pantless
wrong notes are insignificant but must be played with passion
and one man cannot pretend to have every answer
yummy time to be a dummy for the crash test
some are hungry like the rabbits in the cabbage patches
and other ones are hungry like the jackals
so it happens, rip the bows and ribbons off the package
harbor had entrapped the ship searching for safe passage
story of the bandage it was more than they could manage
leaving town and boarding without baggage

WHy oh why
can't they make it easy
ride all night til I'm back home
try and try
still you gotta tease me
a guessing game till we crack the code

cars in transit beyond the stars and planets
24 point antlers off to the dances
few and far between like honest mechanics
sharp as a bayonet still hard as granite
never lose direction if you sense the magnet
grasping at the moment of truth before it vanishes
one time only no second chances
and the jesters in the corner just standing there laughing
I'm not dumb, stupid or a halfwit
calm myself down using herbs like catnip
the horizon rises to eye level with the flatness
affect the butterfly net did I catch it
reaching out different directions like arachnids
rotation floatation of the axis
so when the audio smashes and the volume maxes
be sure to put Os and Raze on the tracklist

WHy oh why
can't they make it easy
ride all night til I'm back home
try and try
still you gotta tease me
a guessing game till we crack the code
WHy oh why
can't they make it easy
ride all night til I'm back home
try and try
still you gotta tease me
a guessing game till we crack the code
Track Name: OTN
old to new

on to the next yeah its a play by play
the same old thing when the daylight change
flex on dishonor yeah say what you say
who would have ever thought it would shape up this way

under the twilight I sit up and type write
the rhythm of my life forget what you might like
I simply do my vibe so get with the program
listen to the wisdom that was spit by the old man
I'm shooting at coke cans and drinking a cheap beer
do it with both hands control it when we steer
I went to the coast and I could tell that it seems clear
if you knew what I know you would know we don't need fear
drop anchor / rather have a spidey sense than be unaware of danger
about time the outline becoming fainter
explanation of the trepidation
strange things in the 18 hangar
vilified cause they're not ill as i
take a couple blotters then the waters will divide
groundhog day done this a couple million times
colony of idolatry they probably wanna build a shrine

on to the next yeah its a play by play
still the still the same old thing when the daylight change
put flex on dishonor so say what you say
who would have ever thought it would shape up this way
they really wanna set my side in a minute
you know I'm gonna take my time, to go get it
still rise cause the sky is the limit
you know where we go with this devotion

same quota coded for the payola
the grains becoming molded as the day unfolded
as the canyons and the waterways eroded
and the soil fluffs up as the rain soaks in
viable just as the signs foretold
making a point its why they write it bold
so simple even a little child knows
doesn't mean we need to ask why it grows
peekaboo this is me to you please be reasonable
free the truth is to see it through we gonna know
fundamentals and the elements
sometimes it should be obvious but doesn't show
phraseology became a policy
certain things are the same as they'll always be
no one enjoys being made a mockery
something to say? ok, talk to me

on to the next yeah its a play by play
still the still the same old thing when the daylight change
put flex on dishonor so say what you say
who would have ever thought it would shape up this way
they really wanna set my side in a minute
you know I'm gonna take my time go get it
still rise cause the sky is the limit
you know where we go with this devotion

poly flora, let it dip em the party aura
I adore ya, but why you gotta be so naughty laura
keeping it tight yes we got it torqued up
its a rather long list of things I do for your love
searching for a falling star/ between the bonded polymer
on certain levels, things are the same as they always were
so the sauce doesn't burn, keep it moving, we gotta stir
around the fur of the kitty pretty and she always purrs
hell is for the pious and self-righteous
must have been wandering, not sure where my mind went
struck gold, also precious stones and diamonds
snap fingers to it like a metronome you can time it
celebratory syllables t he best stories remain still untold
forget breaking it they couldn't even fill the mold
art led you to the start menu then you chill at home
and the saga continues, watch it cause it will unfold

on to the next yeah its a play by play
still the still the same old thing when the daylight change
put flex on dishonor so say what you say
who would have ever thought it would shape up this way
they really wanna set my side in a minute
you know I'm gonna take my time go get it
still rise cause the sky is the limit
you know where we go with this devotion
