STILL HEAR

from by THAIONE DAVIS

/
  • Title track and re-introduction to the self contained b-boy known as Thaione Davis. STILL HEAR is the affirmation of all things considered displaying lyrical dexterity and a poignant sense of content. I wanted to establish the "theme" early and also foreshadow the controlled process of writing which continues for the duration of the album. STILL HEAR is the stripped down raw form of an emcee and his marriage to the beat. No chorus, just raw delivery over a soulful beat produced by Rashid Hadee.

lyrics

STILL HEAR

Okay now…
Situations at a stand still
Grand ol scheme in it
Like i ain’t got nothing to lose
Not confused by the motions
Or the part time turbulence
It’s nothing
Fuck around and straight get to busting
When it come to the clutch
Or when the ceiling start caving
Observations on the plantation
Same as they ever was
Never knew the flock would flee
I guess they minds ain’t free
And now they scars revealed
They say i got skills
Not enough to pay them bills
You rarely catch me on the bill of your local colleseum
Give em pieces of a broken dream
I’m shitting on theese niggas
Ask ‘em why they colon clean
Come on it’s not a fragmented theme
This is a concise treaty
A manuscript for that deja vu
Rip shows where the people speaking
Parlez-vous
Pardon my stench
Got relecs of them funkadelic cassettes
I guess it’s never gonna change
Solo from the cradle to the grave
Flipping thru this page after pain
After page just another canvas
Been thru the gambit
Respect my stripes
Permeate stereotype
Igniting the boards
Until they running outta steam
Or collapse
That nigga unseen
You can never test
Pride
Take em to extremes
I knew the formula was full of poison
Who the fiends
Really i’m a fan who just pivot in between
The backstage courtsey of everything you don’t believe
Check check 1 2

refrain//

The greatest moment is a capsule in somebody mind
Ready to hatch at any second that’s a delicate weapon
Maybe tradition is the cannon exposed
Tattering flesh
Not a request
Just commands on the battlefields
Living by the motto of 1 shot 1 kill
Niggas wasting ammunition while i’m glistening
Plus setting the standard
Tolerance levels is gone
If they come wack up on the microphone
Get em off the throne
Send em straight to the guillotine
Treat em like witches
Im burning muthafuckers in they britches
Who bragging
1984 up on this mattress
Backflips
Trying to get that helicopter mastered
Tradesmen
Davis international amazing
Proficient
I’m gifted
Whatever rhymes with your thesaurus
I bartered the chorus for ransom
Don’t matter the conditions
Rashid smoothing out the intermission
We from the hood
Everywhere you travel better knock on wood
It could happen when you least expect it
They got kids killing kids
Is you ready to go conquer you fears
Cause it appears that your inner shell is feminine
I’m genuine by all accounts
The only verdict is applause
Confirmation of your feelings are typical
Its’ critical to chase them papes
But sacrifice of your creed
Might reset your pace
And now you gone with the breeze
I’m a city dweller
Trace it through my bones
Carbon dated to the era circa jean baptist
Skin covered in that texas grease
Rest in peace to my legacy
I just can’t cease
They tell me failure’s not an option
So…i’m still hear
